The 2023 Ford F150 wheel spacers are available as regular tuning accessories for cars, SUVs, pickup trucks, RVs, etc. Wheel spacers were first introduced in motorsports to take advantage of the load transfer caused by the increase in track to gain speed and stability when cornering. The early wheel spacers were only used as an accessory to increase the track and did not consider safety. With the upgrade of wheel spacers for many models, including the 2023 Ford F150 wheel spacers, manufacturers began to explain the structure and thickness of wheel spacers in more detail.
Should You Put 1.5-inch 2023 Ford F150 Wheel Spacers on?
No matter what model you install wheel spacers on, you need to consider the vehicle’s offset. Take the 2023 Ford F150, for example. The offset is 44; installing 1.5-inch 2023 Ford F150 wheel spacers can get about 38 offsets. After installing wheel spacers, the offset of the 2023 Ford F150 becomes 44-38=6; if you are worried about the effect of zero offsets on the geometry, you can choose 1-inch 2023 Ford F150 wheel spacers.
The 1.5-inch 2023 Ford F150 wheel spacers allow for 38mm of clearance, a space that can be provided for wider aftermarket brakes or wider tires. Aftermarket brakes are attractive to any new car buyer, and they have better braking performance and can significantly reduce braking distances. While aftermarket brakes tend to be wider and tend to rub against the spokes on the inside of the wheel when mounted. 2023 Ford F150 wheel spacers can push the wheel to the outside, and you can get a more accurate thickness of 2023 Ford F150 wheel spacers by measuring the distance between the two.
Pickup truck drivers are often keen on traversing complex terrain, so the passing ability of pickup trucks is often one of the functions they look for. Larger off-road tires are better for the terrain, and the vehicle is comfortable with complex terrain due to the increased friction. Wider tires may cause them to rub against control arms, suspensions, liners, and other components, and the 2023 Ford F150 wheel spacers can increase the clearance to allow these parts to fit. You must check that these parts are not rubbing when the vehicle is at the maximum steering angle.
Will 2023 Ford F150 Wheel Spacers Help Handling?
The 2023 Ford F150 wheel spacers have been adjusted for offset to allow aftermarket parts to fit the vehicle. In addition, they significantly help the handling of the 2023 Ford F150. The added track will allow the vehicle to gain more grip, and as the track width increases, rolling resistance increases. Installing 2023 Ford F150 wheel spacers on the front wheels will help the vehicle reduce its tendency to understeer, which can be helpful in a heavier pickup.
When the 2023 Ford F150 is steering, the 2023 Ford F150 wheel spacers increase the distance over which the load is transferred, and the body’s weight gains a more even transfer rather than tilting to one side. Maintaining the center of gravity is the key to stability and higher speeds, and the 2023 Ford F150 wheel spacers help the vehicle go through corners at higher speeds, which is how motorsports works. Fully considering the thickness of the 2023 Ford F150 wheel spacers will help you get a 2023 Ford F150 that handles better.
How to Make 1.5-inch 2023 Ford F150 Wheel Spacers?
Several models of wheel spacers, including the 2023 Ford F150, are made of forged aluminum alloy, which depends on their lighter weight and higher strength after forging. When analyzing the structure of wheel spacers, BONOSS found that wheel spacers are not used as the main force-bearing objects, but the wheel studs and lug nuts are being tested, which are the key fasteners that are subjected to shear and clamping forces.
BONOSS uses 6061-T6 or 7071-T6 forged aluminum alloys for major structures. 7075-T6 forged aluminum alloys have superior tensile and yield strengths of 74,000-78,000 psi and 63,000-69,000 psi to provide customers with more security, but at the same time, they are more expensive than 6061-T6. Many customers prefer the 6061-T6 2023 Ford F150 wheel spacers because the forged aluminum alloy has a dense, continuous structure and is less likely to fracture.
For the more important wheel studs and lug nuts, BONOSS has used different materials. The wheel studs in the 2023 Ford F150 wheel spacers are made of SCM440 steel alloy. They meet the standard of 12.9 class wheel bolts, with a tensile strength of 1220MPa, the ultimate tensile strength of 152,000N, a proof load of 121,000N, a Limited Life Range of 2,000,000 Stress Cycles, and can pass the amazing 500H salt spray test after processing by the new Dacromet rust prevention technology.
2023 Ford F150 wheel spacers lug nuts are made with 40Cr, a steel alloy forged to the highest grade 10 standard as lug nuts. BONOSS has engraved the exclusive brand logo and grade mark on the surface of both wheel studs and lug nuts, which means they are certified by SGS, TUV, and other authoritative third-party testing agencies. You can also find their test reports on BONOSS’ website.
Should Your 1.5-inch 2023 Ford F150 Wheel Spacers be Hub-centric?
For the 2023 Ford F150 wheel spacers, hub-centric are like seatbelts on the car. They ensure that your wheels always rotate properly in the centered position. By connecting the hub assembly to the groove in the center hole of the wheel, the hub centric allows the weight of the body to remain transferred according to the original structure, solving the problem of the lug-centric’s worn bolt holes causing changes in pitch diameter and eliminating the possibility of shaking and noise at high speeds.
Using a CNC machine for 0.02mm machining, BONOSS ensures that the 2023 Ford F150 wheel spacers hub centric maintains a precise fit, reducing gaps between parts can reduce the probability of failure. BONOSS unique multi-stage hub-centric is designed according to the curvature and tilt angle of the wheel’s center hole recess, which better fits the three-dimensional structure of the wheel.
