Operating correctly, the 2023 Honda Pilot wheel spacers won’t hurt your vehicle. Conversely, they make the car perform better. In most situations, the wrong size spacers will cause the wheels to hit suspension parts, affecting the overall performance. Due to the OEM arrangement of suspension components, vehicle chassis engineers establish wheel and spacer size limitations. Professional mechanics will suggest adding proper-size 2023 Honda Pilot wheel spacers because they enlarge the selection of aftermarket wheels and tires.
In the automotive market, 2023 Honda Pilot wheel spacers are available in thicknesses from 15mm to 70mm. The wheel clearance is a good reference for proper wheel spacer size. If your wheel gap is about 1-inch (25mm), then using 1-inch wheel spacers (or a little thinner) will not damage any part of the suspension. In some cases, the mass of the 2023 Honda Pilot wheel spacers plus wheels is lighter than the equivalent solid wheels with the same backspacing, they won’t hurt your suspension.
What 2023 Honda Pilot Wheel Spacers Make No Hurt?
When installed, 2023 Honda Pilot wheel spacers become the connection point of the wheel and hub assembly. Hence, you would need hub-centric spacers. For a perfect suitable installation, BONOSS wheel spacers come with specific hub-centric rings for specific vehicle styles. This provides a stable connection between the axle and the wheel. Since there is no significant extra force, the effects of the 2023 Honda Pilot wheel spacers on the bearing are within the safety standards.
Apart from the 2023 Honda Pilot wheel spacers themselves, the wheel studs are also important parts that secure the wheels. Generally, the higher the tensile strength, the more impact load the wheel studs can withstand, and the safer they are. To ensure safety, BONOSS 2023 Honda Pilot wheel spacers come with ISO grade 12.9 wheel studs (tensile strength ≥ 1220Mpa; ultimate tensile load ≥ 152,000N; proof load ≥ 121,000N). These SGS TÜV-certified wheel studs and lug nuts are completely safe to use.
How to Install 2023 Honda Pilot Wheel Spacers Properly?
It usually takes less than an hour to install 2023 Honda Pilot wheel spacers on your vehicle, but remember, there are still a few things to do before driving your car away. To make driving as pleasant as possible, you need to check whether there is a tire rubbing. After installing the 2023 Honda Pilot wheel spacers, park the car on flat ground, rotate the steering wheel to one extreme position, and inspect the wheel well of the tire that’s outside.
If there is a rubbing, you will notice clear signs on the internal fender and the liner. Repeat the same process for the other wheels. There can be many reasons why your tires are bumping with the wheel arches like the wrong wheel offset, or new aftermarket suspension components. Adjust those parts to eliminate the rubbing issue. But if this doesn’t work, changing to thinner 2023 Honda Pilot wheel spacers will be a solution.
