2023 Toyota Supra GR wheel spacers help control the vehicle better during intense driving. Many customers want to install 2023 Toyota Supra GR wheel spacers to get more grip and more stable control. Influenced by the Japanese drift culture, whether the AE86 in “Initial D” or the exchange of real street drift culture, the fun of driving a rear-wheel drive performance car has changed from straight-line acceleration to diagonal drifting.
We all know that the essence of the 2023 Toyota Supra GR is the genes of the BMW Z4. With the precision of German manufacturing and Toyota’s Japanese drifting culture, many customers buy 2023 Toyota Supra GR wheel spacers to feel more 2023 Toyota Supra GR’s handling performance at track days or car events, all under safe conditions, of course.
Can 2023 Toyota Supra GR Wheel Spacers Help Drifting?
We know that 2023 Toyota Supra GR wheel spacers affect the driving of the vehicle, but how do 2023 Toyota Supra GR wheel spacers affect the driving of the vehicle when the 2023 Toyota Supra GR is drifting? The 2023 Toyota Supra GR wheel spacers are installed between the wheel and hub assembly to increase wheel clearance while increasing the length and scrub radius of the bearings. This reduces the tendency to oversteer when the vehicle is steering and helps the vehicle gain grip towards the inside of the corner.
This is contingent upon installing 2023 Toyota Supra GR wheel spacers on the front wheels. On the contrary, by installing 2023 Toyota Supra GR wheel spacers at the rear wheels, there is no scrub radius effect as the rear wheels are not actively involved in the steering process. Still, the lengthening of the rear wheel bearings will likewise help it gain more lateral grip, and the increased grip at the rear wheels during steering will reduce the tendency to oversteer.
To sum up, the rear wheel skids the steering wheel backward the car continues to move forward. Although there are three drifting methods, actual driving is a mixture of three driving methods.
- Power skid: pop the clutch and big foot throttle, and pull up the speed caused by the rear wheel skid. The higher the tire grip, the faster the car’s speed.
- Inertial drift: Turn the steering wheel hard at high speed (very high difficulty), and the body will follow the original direction of forward sliding, not exactly according to the direction of the tires.
- Handbrake throwing curve: high-speed driving speed is very high to throw a curve to step on the clutch, pull the handbrake, the other hand to play a little direction, and then reverse the steering wheel.
Mounting 2023 Toyota Supra GR wheel spacers on the front wheels will give you better control when drifting, while you may need to leave a little extra room in those wheel wells to clear the links for things like external tie rods, tensioner arms, or sway bar ends, the increased bearing length will help distribute the load transfer evenly when the car is steering for a better drift stance.
Of course, you can also install 2023 Toyota Supra GR wheel spacers on the rear wheels, but the thickness needs to be carefully considered for the effect of the increased grip on the drifting stance. Usually, 2023 Toyota Supra GR wheel spacers are used in two symmetrical ways. Stacking wheel spacers is dangerous. You can choose the safer hub-centric bolt-on wheel spacers for use.
Are 2023 Toyota Supra GR Wheel Spacers Safe?
BONOSS recommends using 7075-T6 aluminum alloy Active Cooling wheel spacers with high precision hub-centric design to ensure the concentric position of the wheel hub and hub assembly to avoid shaking at high speed. The concentric position of the assembly avoids possible shaking at high speeds, and the active cooling function designed to take into account intense driving conditions such as drifting will effectively reduce the effects of high temperatures brought about by the brakes and tires, ensuring that the 2023 Toyota Supra GR wheel spacers maintain good mechanical performance under high temperatures.
You don’t need to worry about the effect of acceleration on the cross-cutting force of wheel bolts during drifting because BONOSS insists on using 12.9-grade high-performance wheel bolts. SCM440 high-strength steel alloy will provide a 2023 Toyota Supra GR with up to 1220 MPa tensile strength and 121.000 N Proof Load to prevent damage caused by plastic deformation. You can be confident in your choice of Active Cooling wheel spacers from BONOSS.
