Properly installing brand 2023 Porsche Macan wheel spacers won’t hurt your vehicle. Decades of optimization and countless cases have proven tire spacers are safe and feasible. People think spacers damage the SUV because they add more weight to the bearing. However, with the development of modern manufacturing technology, aluminum 2023 Porsche Macan wheel spacers are made as light as possible while maintaining high strength. The added weight can be negligible. Adding such car spacers won’t negatively affect the suspension parts.
When the wheel offset is not ideal, adding 2023 Porsche Macan wheel spacers will be a good solution. Spacers act as the extension of wheel hubs, actually, they decrease wheel offset. Less offset means the wheels are pushed out away from the brake rotors. Whether you are upsizing to high-performance wheels for a “sporty” look and feel, or downsizing to smaller wheels for a set of snow tires, these 2023 Porsche Macan wheel spacers will eliminate the rubbing issues for safe driving.
What Sizes of 2023 Porsche Macan Wheel Spacers Fit My SUV?
In the automotive market, 2023 Porsche Macan wheel spacers are available in thicknesses from 3mm to 70mm. Knowing and understanding how much wheel clearance comes into play when looking for new wheel spacers. Giving an example, if your vehicle hub is 5 lugs and the diameter of the centerline of the wheel lugs is 112mm, then the vehicle bolt pattern is 5×112mm. High-end 2023 Porsche Macan wheel spacers are built specifically for the make and model of your vehicle.
If you intend to use hub-centric 2023 Porsche Macan wheel spacers, you will have to consider the diameter of the center bore. Hub-centric rim spacers are capable to transform lug-centric wheels into hub-centric ones. The hub side of the spacer is machined to fit the OEM vehicle hub and the other side is made to a different center bore size to fit aftermarket rims. For example, if you want to convert a 71.6mm center bore to 66.5mm, 71.6 to 66.5 wheel adapters will be the solution.
Can I Remove the 2023 Porsche Macan Wheel Spacers?
When upgrading to new performance brakes or 2023 Porsche Macan wheel spacers of different sizes, it is required to remove the old spacers. Removing wheel spacers should not be hard, but a spacer can get stuck due to rust accumulation. Considering this, BONOSS 2023 Porsche Macan wheel spacers are designed with disassembly grooves. The disassembly grooves leave a limited clearance between the brake rotor and spacer. When removing the spacer, place a screwdriver into the notch and you can simply apply force at an angle to separate the spacer from the brake rotor.
Lightweight BONOSS 2023 Porsche Macan wheel spacers are slip-on types, so a set of new extended wheel bolts is necessary to safely secure them. BONOSS forged grade 12.9 wheel bolts can add safety as well as maximize the appearance of your wheels. The grade 12.9 means the minimum tensile strength of the wheel bolts is 1,282 MPa. And most originally equipped wheel bolts are grade 10.9 (about 1,040 MPa). The stronger the bolt is, the more force it can withstand more force before breaking. Changing to higher-grade wheel bolts improves safety. Take a look now!
