How wide 2022 Audi A5 wheel spacers are better on your vehicle? What are the effects of different thicknesses of 2022 Audi A5 wheel spacers? Using different aftermarket wheels and installing A5 spacers of different thicknesses allows tires to sit in different positions on the car body, which will make your A5 a different style. However, if you modify springs or other accessories, you can’t install them casually. So, what thickness to choose for the 2022 Audi A5 wheel spacers are better on your car? Let’s get it!
How Wide 2022 Audi A5 Wheel Spacers Are Better?
“Just had a quick question about spacers. I was planning on running 15mm spacers all around for my Audi A5. And my plan was to lower it with some brands sport springs and then run 15mm spacers. But I was told by a few people on some auto forums that 15mm all around might be too wide for the A5. So which spacer thickness do I need to get a flush look?” –from some Audi Forum hot thread.
I have to say this is not a quick question, this netizen wants to modify the springs of the car and did not tell whether the original tires have been replaced. In this case, to achieve the ideal wheel push-out distance, detailed data or actual measurement and calculation must be provided.
How To Measure?
You need to use an L-square so that one side is parallel to the outside of the wheel, and then use the other side up against the lower edge of the fender. The reading on the L-square at this time that is the distance of the wheels flush with the fender needs to protrude. The questioner mentioned that he wanted to lower his A5 springs, in which case tires would not be able to protrude the fenders. Because the height of the wheel arch is lowered, if tires poke out the fender, it is likely to damage the fender when passing through the speed bump or bump road. And for the Coupe like the Audi A5, whether or not the springs and suspension system are modified, the wheels don’t need to protrude that much. Then the previously measured distance that needs to be protruded minus 3mm is the thickness of the required wheel spacers (provided that the wheels of different types are not replaced after the measurement). For Audi A5, according to BONOSS’s large number of A5 customer purchase and installation examples, we recommend 5-8mm BL version wheel spacers (slip-on hub-centric design) to improve your wheels and tires.
What Are The Effects Of Different Thicknesses Of Wheel Spacers?
3mm-12mm wheel spacers: It can effectively solve the problem of friction between components and lack of space.
13mm-25mm wheel spacers: It can effectively improve the stability of the body and make the vehicle have a significant appearance improvement. And in this thickness range, spacers with bolt-on structure are used, making it more convenient and safer to install aftermarket tires.
25mm-50mm wheel spacers: The wheels are further pushed out, which affects the operating characteristics of the vehicle more obviously, also the appearance is more obviously improved. The vehicles that choose to install 25mm+ spacers are generally SUVs, Trucks, Pickups and other vehicles with higher suspension.
