One of the questions customers often ask is, “What size 2023 BMW 4 series wheel spacers should I choose?” Oversized wheel spacers can cause the wheels to protrude from the fenders, which is not allowed by law in some regions. For sedans, the most satisfying size of wheel spacers for customers should be flush with the fenders, ensuring that the fenders are always functional during driving and that the whole stance gives the vehicle a more aggressive stance.
The appropriate thickness of the 2023 BMW 4 series wheel spacers can be obtained based on the wheel offset and the distance from the wheel to the fender. The offset refers to the distance from the wheel centerline to the mounting surface. Installing wheel spacers will reduce the positive offset. The wheel will be positioned towards the outside or out of the fender, which is good news for some customers who prefer wide-body modifications.
Is Offset Important for 2023 BMW 4 Series Wheel Spacers?
The modification specialist will recommend that you consult the vehicle’s OE offset and consider the effect of installing 2023 BMW 4 series wheel spacers on the geometry, track, and offset before determining the thickness. When the rim is designed for a specific offset and application, the wheel specialist must consider the current offset, the required offset, the rim width, the setback clearance, and the PCD hole depth during machining. For example, if the OE offset is 28 and the customer wants to reduce the offset to 20, then 8mm wheel spacers would be the ideal choice.
Replacing aftermarket alloy wheels with a smaller offset will have some effect on driving stability, performance, and appearance. The reduced offset may have different effects in different locations, with reduced offset on the front wheels reducing the tendency to understeer and the opposite on the rear wheels. Pushing the wheels to the inside of the vehicle may cause friction with the fenders or control arms when steering. Moving the wheels outward a certain distance will increase the car’s stability when steering. Consider adding 8mm-15mm 2023 BMW 4 series wheel spacers, which are effective.
What Are 2023 BMW 4 Series Wheel Spacers Too Much?
Oversize refers to the distance the wheel spacers exceed the fender when installed, which can easily cause the outside of the wheel to scrape against the shoulder of the road, damaging the appearance of the wheel and potentially splashing water on rainy days. Therefore, large-size wheel spacers (30mm or more) are often used in off-road scenarios. So what size 2023 BMW 4 series wheel spacers are suitable for it?
BONOSS recommends using 2023 BMW 4 series wheel spacers in the range of 8mm-20mm, which will fit both front and rear wheels, depending on the customer and vehicle data. If you need to adjust the offset of the wheel spacers for a caliper modification, then 10mm and 12mm wheel spacers will be the best choice. BONOSS also accepts customized requests such as specific thickness and color.
