Using high-performance 2023 Lexus IS wheel spacers does not lead to safety issues. Wheel spacers have been tested on professional race tracks, and it is considered cost-effective as aftermarket parts for adjusting vehicle offset. Some may question the safety of the 2023 Lexus IS wheel spacers, worry about the effect the 2023 Lexus IS wheel spacers will have on the under spring weight, or worry about the additional wear and tear on the bearings from the 2023 Lexus IS wheel spacers. Some report that the wheel spacers they purchased have broken or parts have fractured. All these questions will make people wonder whether the wheel spacers will cause problems.
Due to quality or installation, we have collected some FAQs of 2023 Lexus IS wheel spacers, and they will help you buy and install them. Meanwhile, BONOSS also provides various quality wheel parts and notes for you. Click the BONOSS blog will get more detailed guidance.
2023 Lexus IS Wheel Spacers Suffered a Fatigue Fracture
The Bolt-on type 2023 Lexus IS wheel spacers consist of a disc body and wheel bolts, which also need to withstand shear forces as the disc body needs to be used as an adapter for the wheels to be mounted. The matching wheel bolts are needed to secure the wheel spacers to the hub assembly. They also need to withstand the shear forces generated by the rotor rotation thousands of times to test the performance of the 2023 Lexus IS wheel spacers.
The wheel bolts on 2023 Lexus IS wheel spacers are subjected to proof load and ultimate tensile strength testing by professional organizations. The test data represents the ultimate value of the plastic deformation of the product. The 10.9 and 12.9-grade wheel bolts have excellent elastic limits as common products.
We have found that most poor-quality 2023 Lexus IS wheel spacers fail due to fatigue fracture. Unlike connecting rod bolts subjected to alternating loads of inertial and centrifugal forces of motion, 2023 Lexus IS wheel spacers wheel bolts are subjected to thousands of times the shear forces of vehicle acceleration and deceleration. The fracture method is usually fatigue fracture, meaning the wheel bolts break or undergo plastic deformation.
2023 Lexus IS Wheel Spacers Effect on Underspring Weight
If you choose to install 2023 Lexus IS wheel spacers, there is bound to be an impact on the under spring weight because the extra weight will be added to the wheels, but most race cars also use wheel spacers, aren’t they worried about the impact of the under spring weight? The impact of under spring weight on speed exists. Still, the vehicle’s straight acceleration ability has been very good in the modern advanced vehicle design. Still, the vehicle’s cornering speed and stability can only be corrected by increasing the track and tires. The reason why the race car installed wheel spacers is also for the reason of gaining a cornering advantage.
The choice of forged aluminum 2023 Lexus IS wheel spacers will reduce the impact on spring weight to a certain extent. Well-known car manufacturers, including BMW, Lexus, and Mercedes-Benz, have adopted forged aluminum alloys for their chassis structures because of their tensile strength, yield strength, and weight, which are all consistent with the advantages of lightweight. The body weight can be improved greatly, and the effect on the under-spring weight can be ignored. At the same time, most cars will choose 12mm-18mm wheel spacers for modification, and they do not make too much impact.
2023 Lexus IS Wheel Spacers Wear and Tear on Bearings
The 2023 Lexus IS wheel spacers were thought to cause rapid wear and tear on the vehicle’s bearings, but in actual use, not only Lexus IS customers have reported decades of use without any problems, the vehicle still works the way it should. The 2023 Lexus IS wheel spacers are mounted between the assembly and the wheels, and any part will wear out and fail one day, so BONOSS offers a 10-year warranty on the 2023 Lexus IS wheel spacers. The lightweight 2023 Lexus IS wheel spacers have negligible impact on the bearings in practice, and the additional clearance slightly impacts the geometry. 2023 Lexus IS wheel spacers have almost no negative impact on the vehicle.
Some customers stacking 2023 Lexus IS wheel spacers or choosing excessive thicknesses tend to have a greater impact because oversized 2023 Lexus IS wheel spacers are not a good idea for sedans. The corrected offset requires a readjustment of the geometry, and stacking wheel spacers tend to cause uneven forces on the parts, making them prone to fatigue fracture accidents.
How to Choose the Best 2023 Lexus IS Wheel Spacers?
How to choose the best 2023 Lexus IS wheel spacers will be your concern. We mentioned the material and fastener requirements of the 2023 Lexus IS wheel spacers, so the high-quality wheel spacers should be made of high-performance forged aluminum alloy. The common 6061-T6 and 7075- T6 will provide you with enough strength. Most of the wheel spacers in this industry will be forged 6061-T6 because they can provide 42,000-45,000 psi tensile strength and 35,000-40,000 psi yield strength, which is enough to support the daily use of the car.
Suppose you want to feel the intensity of driving the 2023 Lexus IS on track days. In that case, we recommend the 7075-T6 forged aluminum 2023 Lexus IS wheel spacers, which offer an additional 40% higher performance than 6061-T6 as a high variant of forged aluminum alloys. They can achieve tensile strengths of 74,000-78,000 psi and yield strengths of 63,000-69,000 psi, allowing them to be used in more intense scenarios.
Wheel bolts are required for the 2023 Lexus IS wheel spacers as matching parts with high performance. In bolt-on wheel spacers, BONOS offers 12.9-grade wheel bolts as fasteners. In destructive tests by SGS and TUV, they can provide an ultimate tensile strength of 152,000 N and a proof load of 121,000 N. These two figures will ensure that they remain within the elastic limit of normal operation.
Choose 2023 Lexus IS wheel spacers in the 12mm-20mm range. They will meet your needs for wheel spacers. Whether you want full body lines for cosmetic reasons or hardware upgrades to avoid component rubbing, 2023 Lexus IS wheel spacers in this thickness range will do the job. Suppose you want to know the exact thickness or customize your 2023 Lexus IS wheel spacers to a specific thickness. In that case, you can contact BONOSS customer service, and we will provide you professional advice.
