After installing the 2023 Jeep Cherokee wheel spacers, a set of new extended wheel bolts is necessary hardware. Because the OEM Jeep KL wheels and tires must be held evenly and securely to the wheel hub by the wheel bolts. Now you have added additional space between the wheel and hub assembly, your OEM Jeep wheel bolts can’t provide enough thread for safely securing the 2023 Jeep Cherokee wheel spacers and wheels. If the lug bolts are not tightened securely, it can cause the wheel to vibrate, loosen and wobble.
This can damage or even break the 2023 Jeep Cherokee wheel spacers and wheel bolts, potentially causing the wheel to separate from the vehicle. The general rule of thumb is that the thread length must be equal to or greater than the diameter of the bolt itself. Giving an example, an M12 wheel bolt would need at least 12mm threads to ensure a safe engagement. As a guideline claims, you need at least 7 turns (preferably 8 turns) from start to torque. So, make sure you have the proper number of turns after adding 2023 Jeep Cherokee wheel spacers.
Are Forged Aluminum 2023 Jeep Cherokee Spacers Good?
Typically, the best 2023 Jeep Cherokee wheel spacers are made of aluminum alloys. But even if the material is the same, different manufacturing process provides different mechanical performance. Forged 2023 Jeep Cherokee wheel spacers are often more durable. They are significantly stronger and tougher than casting aftermarket KL spacers. In the forging process, tons of continuous stress make the internal structure more compact, adding strength to combat everyday wear and tear.
If you are looking for durable and lightweight 2023 Jeep Cherokee wheel spacers, then BONOSS forged aluminum lightweight plus Jeep KL spacers kit is a perfect option. BONOSS forged lightweight plus 2023 Jeep Cherokee wheel spacers machined with “Hollow Carved” holes. This design provides obviously lightweight effect while maintaining high strength. For example, a normal Jeep 10mm spacer is about 346g and a BONONSS hollow 10mm spacer is 251g. The weight is reduced by 113g (32.7% off)
Are 2023 Jeep Cherokee Wheel Spacers Rustproof?
High-quality aluminum 2023 Jeep Cherokee wheel spacers are not easy to corrode. Basically, aluminum alloys are good in corrosion resistance and rust-proof. When aluminum contacts the air, it forms a layer of oxide which renders it non-reactive with elements that are corrosive to the underlying metal. So, these aluminum 2023 Jeep Cherokee wheel spacers are no different. They are resistant to rust and corrosion, unlike their steel counterparts.
To further improve the corrosion resistance and appearance of the spacers, BONOSS aluminum 2023 Jeep Cherokee wheel spacers are excellent candidates for black hard coat anodizing. A proper hard anodizing coating ensures complete protection against corrosion. The oxide layer that follows the anodizing process offers excellent protection. The black dye not only brings a premium appearance but also tends to be lightfast. This means anodizing aluminum 2023 Jeep Cherokee wheel spacers are not easy to corrode or oxidate which makes them safely work for long-term use.
