The safety of 1-inch 2024 Subaru Forester wheel spacers is considered the foremost factor when modifying vehicles, while personalization and aesthetics come second. Subaru Forester owners, among others, often find themselves perplexed when choosing the thickness of wheel spacers, wondering if thicker spacers are inherently better, especially in the case of 1-inch 2024 Subaru Forester wheel spacers. However, before embarking on any modifications to your 2024 Subaru Forester, it is crucial to have a comprehensive understanding of the performance and safety aspects of aftermarket wheel parts.
How Big of 1-inch 2024 Subaru Forester Wheel Spacers?
The thickness of 1-inch 2024 Subaru Forester wheel spacers is approximately 25mm. The original equipment (OE) vehicle’s ET value typically falls within the range of 46-50. By installing 1-inch spacers, the vehicle’s ET value will be adjusted to 21-25mm, resulting in increased clearance. This allows the vehicle to accommodate larger brake kits, enabling the use of bigger calipers. Wheel spacers serve as components that reduce wheel offset, and selecting the correct thickness of wheel spacers based on wheel parts ensures smooth operation between components.
BONOSS provides a straightforward tutorial for customers to measure the required wheel spacer thickness for their 2024 Subaru Forester. The most direct data can be obtained by parking the vehicle on a level surface, placing a square vertically against the outer side of the tire and the lower end of the fender. BONOSS recommends using the thickness of the flush fender. This approach helps prevent the wheel hub from scraping against the roadside during driving, which could cause damage and also complies with regulations in some regions that restrict tires from extending beyond the fenders.
If you plan to install 2024 Subaru Forester wheel spacers for off-road purposes, 1-inch wheel spacers would be a favorable choice. The 25mm thickness provides ample space to fit off-road-specific wide tires and larger-sized wheels, contributing to improved traction and grip. Of course, offset wheels are also an option, but they are generally less cost-effective than wheel spacers, considering both their impact on the vehicle and their price.
Are 1-inch 2024 Subaru Forester Wheel Spacers Safe?
The larger the size of wheel spacers, the greater the impact on the vehicle, making it essential for them to have sufficient safety and design features. BONOSS provides 2024 Subaru Forester wheel spacers focusing on precision and safety in their design. The multi-stage hub-centric design ensures that the spacers maintain a concentric position with the rotor and wheel hub. At the same time, precise positioning guarantees the accurate installation of the wheel spacers onto the vehicle’s wheel hub, reducing the risk of failure due to vibration or stress.
The material’s weight plays a significant role in the vehicle’s performance. BONOSS opts for forged aluminum alloy to manufacture its products, considering the strength-to-weight ratio of AL6061-T6 and AL7075-T6 materials. Both materials can be used in the production of the spacers. Compared to steel alloy spacers, aluminum alloy is lighter, which benefits the vehicle’s unsprung weight.
