The most commonly used 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 wheel spacers are bolt-on types. The spacer is machined to fit over the vehicle hub, with bolt holes drilled to fit. New wheel studs are pressed into the spacer in the arrangement of the wheel lug patterns. For example, the bolt pattern of a 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 is 6×139.7mm, and the lug pattern of the spacers should be 6×139.7mm. The rims finally are secured on the spacer with stock wheel nuts. Since the force of studs hasn’t changed, this connection is just as safe as without spacers.
If your pickup truck is equipped with aluminum alloy wheels, then it is recommended to use aluminum 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 wheel spacers. Nowadays, billet aluminum has become the standard metal used for making performance 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 wheel spacers. Aluminum spacers are much lighter than steel ones, which allows for less gas consumption and better engine efficiency. Furthermore, aluminum 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 wheel spacers are not easy to corrode. They will dissipate brake heat better which effectively reduces brake overheating.
Do 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 Wheel Spacers Cause Vibration?
As a matter of fact, the 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 wheel spacers in themselves don’t cause vibration. Tire experts always recommend hub-centric spacers. Because hub-centric spacers offer a better system of support and stability. In brief words, hub-centric 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 wheel spacers are designed to make a snug connection between the wheel and vehicle hub, ensuring the hub carries the weight of the car instead of the wheel studs.
To further ensure a firm wheel connection, BONOSS 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 wheel spacers come with multi-stage hub-centric rings. The hub-centric metal ring is machined to be multi-layers, and the bevels fit for the corresponding hub flange, which eliminates any possible gaps. So, these BONOSS hub-centric 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 wheel spacers keep the wheel perfectly balanced both during installation and road use. It is important, especially if you go off-roading with wheel spacers.
Are Forged 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 Wheel Spacers Better?
Yes, forged 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 wheel spacers are stronger than cast ones. In contrast to casting, a forged wheel spacer begins as a solid piece of metal referred to as a “billet.” The forging process makes these 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 wheel spacers more durable and more resistant to corrosion and oxidation. Additionally, the spacer’s structural integrity is not compromised. This gives forged wheel spacers inherent strength and durability.
BONOSS 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 wheel spacers are made of high-grade forged 6061-T6 or 7075-T6 billet aluminum alloy. Both 6061-T6 and 7075-T6 are high-performance aluminum alloys. They feature good corrosion resistance, weldability, workability, and machinability. After the forged process, the structural strength, toughness, and corrosion resistance are improved greatly. This means these BONOSS 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 wheel spacers provide stronger impact resistance, less fatigue strength, longer service life range, and stronger corrosion resistance.
