What are the benefits of Subaru Solterra wheel spacers? It is safe to run Solterra spacers? These topics become popular with the thrilling arrival of the all-new 2022 Subaru Solterra EV. For many Solterra owners who prefer custom configuration, upgrading the car to better handling and a personalized appearance doubles the driving experience. Bigger wheels and performance brakes are two very popular upgrades for your Subaru Solterra. You can run these big wheels and large brakes without any clearance trouble with the help of Solterra spacers. They also increase the track of your vehicle, hence strengthen the grip. As a result, when your vehicle moves in rough weather or unfavorable driving conditions even then, it does not lose its grip on the road. In addition, the resistance to rollover enhances when the wheels are moved outwards from the vehicle hub. Aesthetically, pushing your wheels outwards to the position you like makes your Subaru EV more aggressive, sporty, and personalized. (Above photos from www.subaru.com)
Why Do You Need Subaru Solterra Rim Spacers?
The major function of these Subaru spacers is to solve clearance issues and improve performance. Wider tires not only offer you better handling but also make the obstacles much smaller. When you are ready to level up your Subaru Solterra, you may want to add wider tires on the stock rims. But the wheel offset is not ideal as you might want. To avoid the larger tires rubbing against your fender or other suspension components, you need to invest in new wheels with less backspacing or buy a wheel spacer. Wheel spacers can push your wheels and tires to the position you want under the fender. They help to keep the tires well on the edge of the wheel, thus preventing crashes into the fenders and suspension when operating a full turn. There are other reasons to use Subaru EV wheel spacers, including as a wheel adapter for running specific rim and tire combinations, to aid the wheels in clearing out protruding brake calipers, or to improve the appearance of your off-road vehicle.
Are 2022 Subaru Solterra Wheel Spacers Safe?
If you installed them properly, high-quality spacers are exactly very safe to use. Most of the disadvantages that people associate with wheel spacers are actually blamed on the low-quality spacers and improper installation. Those low-quality casting spacers are not strong enough and will be deformed and destroyed under intense impacts, leading to disasters. And improper installation, for example, untightened or overtightened lug nuts will also increase the chances of accidents. To improve the safety of Subaru wheel spacers, BONOSS insists on using high-grade forged 6061-T6 or 7075-T6 billet aluminum alloy material. After the forged process, the structural strength, toughness, and corrosion resistance are improved greatly: Tensile Strength≥310Mpa (AL6061-T6), Tensile Strength≥572Mpa (AL7075-T6), Yield Strength≥275Mpa (AL6061-T6), Yield Strength≥503Mpa (AL7075-T6). When facing bump and impact loads, higher tensile strength can bear greater forces without breaking. Avoid buying cheap spacers or you may ultimately pay much more for them. Use durable forged spacers, then you will experience the superb handling and enhanced traction that spacers can offer.
