2022 Nissan Ariya wheel adapters allow for changing the bolt pattern to fit a vast number of wheels. The wheel bolt pattern refers to the number of wheel lugs and the distance that the holes are from each other. Generally, the wheel’s bolt pattern does not match the bolt pattern on the vehicle’s hub, the wheel cannot be attached to that vehicle.
You can install an adapter that changes the wheel lug pattern. For instance, the OEM bolt pattern for the 2022 Nissan Ariya is 5×114.3. The 5×114.3 to 5×120 wheel adapters allow your 2022 Nissan Ariya to install 5×120 wheels without problems. The adapters are mounted to the vehicle hub, and in turn, the wheels are mounted to the adapters. This doesn’t change the original wheel fastening method. Thus, they provide a firm wheel connection. You don’t have to worry about any vibration issues.
What 2022 Nissan Ariya Wheel Adapters Do I Need?
Before choosing the proper 2022 Nissan Ariya wheel adapters, there are a few factors you need to know. You already know the bolt pattern of your vehicle is 5×114.3 (5×4.5″). Next, find out the bolt pattern that you want to convert your car to. You can call the wheel dealers for info or just measure on your own.
- For a 5 lugs wheel, pick one lug hole to start from, use a ruler to measure from the outer edge of that hole to the center of the adjacent hole (skip the one bolt hole).
- For a 4 or 6 lugs wheel, that is much easier, just measure center to center of two holes directly across from each other.
Since many aftermarket wheels are made with various hub diameters, it is important to measure the center bore. The center bore refers to the diameter of the hole in the center of the vehicle hub and wheel. To measure this, measure from one side of the center hole to the opposite side. If the size of the hub bore is different from the wheel bore, even they are the same bolt pattern, they won’t match.
Can I Custom 2022 Nissan Ariya Wheel Adapters?
Although the 2022 Nissan Ariya wheel adapters convert the bolt pattern easily, not every bolt pattern can be converted to any other bolt pattern. If you cannot find the adapter you need, you may be able to custom the 2022 Nissan Ariya wheel adapters. Technically speaking, the minimum required thickness is about 1 inch. Depending on the wheel gap, you can make thicker wheel adapters. 1-inch wheel adapters will make the wheels stick out about 1 inch (25mm). By moving the wheels outwards, 2022 Nissan Ariya wheel adapters provide more stability as well as a sportier appearance.
When it comes to material selection, there are two common metals: steel and aluminum. Steel 2022 Nissan Ariya wheel adapters are significantly stronger than aluminum ones. But steel adapters are much heavier than aluminum ones. The heavier weight will dampen acceleration, agility, and motor efficiency. Steel adapters are not suitable for those who pursue sporty and dynamic driving. On the other side, aluminum 2022 Nissan Ariya wheel adapters are much lighter than steel alternatives, which allows them to operate at a higher performance in most conditions. Lighter-weight aluminum wheel spacers will also allow for faster acceleration. Besides, they are not easy to corrode or oxidize which is good for long-term use.
