How to choose the best 2022 BMW M4 spacers? What is the difference between the different types of M4 spacers? The 2022 BMW M4 is as surprising as its M3 sedan to BMW fans. But the selectivity of the coupe or the soft-top convertible makes it even more luxurious. Behind the body style and power of the new M4, it is a car that can be used as a very civilized daily driving vehicle. When equipping wheel spacers for such an excellent sports car, which type of M4 spacers is right for you? Let us reveal the answer!
The Different Types Of The 2022 BMW M4 Spacers
From how to install on the vehicle, BMW M4 spacers are divided into two types, one is bolt-on wheel spacers, the other is slip-on wheel spacers. The bolt-on wheel spacers have two sets of screw holes, you need to lug bolts provided by the spacer manufacturer to fix one set of screw holes to the axle rotor, and the other set of screw holes to use lug bolts of the vehicle to fix the wheels to the M4 spacer.
The slip-on wheel spacers only have one set of screw holes, which are exactly the same as the PCD of the axle rotor and wheel hub. You only need to install the slip-on M4 spacer on the step of the axle hub, then align the screw holes of the wheel, and finally use lug bolts to fix all three of them to finish the installation steps. There is hardly any difference between the two types of M4 spacers in terms of safety.
When you decide to use the thin 2022 BMW M4 spacers (3mm-10mm)
When you decide to use thin M4 spacers, we recommend the slip-on M4 spacers. Because installing a spacer in this thickness will not require you to replace longer aftermarket lug bolts, plus the extra thickness of the spacer your lug bolts can still meet the torque requirement required by the BMW manufacturer. So using slip-on M4 spacers will allow you to install and uninstall M4 spacers much more conveniently.
When you need to use the thicker 2022 BMW M4 spacers (12mm+)
Once the M4 spacer is thicker than 12mm then you need to use the bolt-on M4 spacers unless you are willing to buy another set of extended BMW wheel bolts. Installing thicker wheel spacers will cause your lug bolts to fail to meet the torque requirement, which will result in insufficient holding force to the wheels. The advantage of using the bolt-on M4 spacers is that you can enjoy thicker spacers without having to pay for a set of extended lug bolts.
The 2022 BMW M4 spacers can be divided into hub-centric wheel spacers and lug-centric wheel spacers in terms of whether or not to change the load-bearing structure of the axle hub. The hub-centric wheel spacer has a ring step, which can tightly connect the wheel hub and the axle hub because the ring step center bore is precisely designed for each vehicle model. When the wheel rotates, the wheel hub and the axle hub are still a whole, and the downward sheer force of the vehicle is still transmitted to the axle, which is also the original loading structure designed by the auto manufacturer.
The lug-centric wheel spacer has no ring step, and its center bore is generally very large. In this way, it can match the center bore of most vehicles, improving the matching range of the model, but it is not precise. Without the connection structure between the axle hub and the wheel hub, most of the weight will be borne by the wheel studs. This is very easy to cause the studs and lug nuts to break.
In any case, we don’t want you to use lug-centric M4 spacers. This kind of design structure is really unsafe. Generally, you can only see such a design structure on low-quality spacers. We hope you choose M4 spacers with a hub-centric design as the standard, which ensures that your vehicle maintains the original loading structure, and installing the hub-centric 2022 BMW M4 spacers just like adding a slice of cheese to your burger which is icing on the cake.
