The 2024 Skoda Kodiaq wheel spacers are required to connect the rotor and the wheel hub center bore. Slip-on type wheel spacers are secured using extended wheel bolts, while bolt-on type spacers require additional wheel bolts for installation. Regardless of the type of wheel spacers used, precise centering is essential to ensure proper alignment. The manufacturer’s knowledge of wheel spacer center bore (CB) data and manufacturing process plays a crucial role in ensuring safety. When choosing wheel spacers for modification, understanding the reliability of the brand is of utmost importance.
How to Ensure 2024 Skoda Kodiaq Wheel Spacers Match the Rotor?
The center bore of the 2024 Skoda Kodiaq wheel spacers is referred to as “hub centric,” which means they have a center protrusion or flat structure. During installation, the circular ring is aligned with the center of the rotor. Some lug centric wheel spacers lack hub centricity and rely solely on the wheel bolts passing through the bolt holes to secure them. This design may result in the wheel hub’s center bore not fitting perfectly against the rotor, causing the bolts and bolt holes to bear the entire impact from the road’s unevenness. Over time, this stress can lead to bolt hole wear, loosening of the bolts, and wheel hub vibrations.
BONOSS has designed a multi-stage hub centric solution that incorporates an arc design. After measuring and comparing the database, precision CNC machining with an accuracy of 0.02mm is used in production to ensure the hub centric perfectly matches the rotor. With the correct installation of the 2024 Skoda Kodiaq wheel spacers, there are no gaps between the wheel hub and the spacers, minimizing the potential for vibrations. The structural design reflects BONOSS’s commitment to product safety.
BONOSS provides a simple and effective method to check if the 2024 Skoda Kodiaq wheel spacers fit perfectly against the rotor. You can place a piece of white paper between the wheel spacers and the rotor without installing the wheel bolts. If the wheel spacers are machined accurately and fit properly, the white paper will not fall or drop.
The static friction between the wheel spacers and the rotor will keep the spacers stable on the rotor surface. Once the wheel bolts are installed, all the components will function in their normal state, ensuring a secure and well-aligned fit. This method serves as a practical way to verify the proper fitment of the wheel spacers and ensures a reliable and safe installation.
What If 2024 Skoda Kodiaq Wheel Spacers Not Match?
If there is a mismatch between the 2024 Skoda Kodiaq wheel spacers and the rotor, you can take the following measures to address the issue:
Use sandpaper and rust remover to sand down any rust or imperfections on the rotor surface before installing the wheel spacers.
After installing the wheel spacers, move the vehicle back and forth and turn the steering wheel to ensure proper alignment.
Use a torque wrench to properly tighten the wheel hubs after installing the wheels.
These measures should resolve most issues related to mismatched wheel spacers and rotors. However, if the problem persists, you can seek assistance from BONOSS’s customer service representatives for further guidance.
