The 2023 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon wheel spacers’ ultimate tensile and yield strength will determine whether running on the vehicle is safe. The wheel spacers are an inexpensive upgrade kit for customers looking to get involved off-road, whether to convert rims to different lug patterns or increase the track, it’s cheaper than offset rims for the same purpose, and because the thickness can be customized, it’s also chosen by many customers.
The 2023 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon wheel spacers for off-road use can adjust the vehicle’s offset, reflected in a change in wheel position, with smaller offsets pushing the wheels outward instead of hiding them in the fenders. The offset rims mentioned above can achieve the same effect, but most aftermarket rims have a fixed offset. Wheel spacers allow more flexibility in adjusting the offset to meet customer requirements.
Why is the Performance of the 2023 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Wheel Spacers Important?
Most of the wheel spacers you encounter are made of aluminum and iron, with a minimal number made of other materials. The reason for choosing these two materials is related to the application scenario of the 2023 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon wheel spacers. The intense off-road driving and the vehicle’s weight require them to be strong enough, where the ultimate tensile strength represents the maximum stress the material can withstand when stretched or pulled before breaking. Ductile-forged aluminum alloy 2023 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon wheel spacers will have higher ultimate tensile strength values.
Wheel spacers made of alloy steel and iron are prone to fracture sharply without plastic deformation, known as brittle damage. Other more ductile materials (including most metals) will undergo plastic deformation and possible necking before fracture. The 2023 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon wheel spacers are subjected to rotor-driven stresses while off-road. The main wheel bolts and spacers’ critical components are subjected to higher stresses.
Forged 6061-T6 aluminum alloy is a reliable material for 2023 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon wheel spacers. It has an ultimate tensile strength of 42,000-45,000 psi compared to cast aluminum alloy products, which is why many wheel spacers use it as a standard material. BONOSS offers 7075-T6 forged aluminum alloy wheel spacers, which are not available in other brands, and has an ultimate tensile strength of 74,000-78,000 psi, about 40% higher than 6061-T6.
The 2023 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon wheel spacers are subjected to the shear forces caused by the rotor drive and the stress caused by the roughness of the road during the driving process. Aftermarket wheel bolts are made of SCM440 forged steel alloy to meet the stress requirements perfectly. The threads are CNC machined to 0.02mm precision, allowing for tighter engagement with the part.
