Should I cut the OEM studs for 20mm Tesla Model X wheel spacers? Is it safe to grind them down so they don’t stick past the spacers? After installing a wheel spacer, the protruding OEM studs may cause the wheel not to sit flush against the hub flange. Actually, there are two situations in that you don’t need to trim wheel studs for 20mm Tesla Model X wheel spacers. Take a look at the inside of your wheels and make sure the mounting plate has pockets machines into it and isn’t solid.
Then measure the cavity in your wheels to check out how much it will allow for the stud to go past the spacer’s outer surface. Giving an example, if the depth of the wheel pocket is 10mm, and the OEM stud length is 30mm, then the minimum thickness of the wheel spacers that will perfectly fit is 20mm (30 – 10 = 20). If the cavity is not deep enough, then changing to above 20mm Tesla Model X wheel spacers will be OK.
Is It Safe to Grind Stock Studs for 20mm Tesla Model X Wheel Spacers?
Yes, as long as you operate correctly and ensure a full thread engagement, cutting studs to fit 20mm Tesla Model X wheel spacers is safe and reliable. Giving an example, the extended parts of the 2020 Tesla Model X stock studs are not subject to force. This means you can cut that parts down with no problems. Since the spacer is secured by the OEM studs, and the wheel is fastened by the provided studs of the wheel spacer, grinding OEM studs to fit 20mm Tesla Model X wheel spacers will not shorten the thread engagement and weaken the strength.
To ensure a strong wheel-spacer-hub connection, BONOSS 20mm Tesla Model X wheel spacers provide ISO 12.9 wheel studs as well as ISO grade 10 lug nuts. All BONOSS wheel spacer complete packages are supplied with SGS and TÜV authoritative certification reports. These BONOSS wheel studs are strong enough to bear more force. Get this project done in a reputable tire shop, or under the guidance of a professional, then you are good to go.
Why Are Genuine Brand 20mm Tesla Model X Wheel Spacers Better?
Brand 20mm Tesla Model X wheel spacers focus on quality and performance. Manufacturers are very strict with raw materials and manufacturing processes. The wheel studs of BONOSS wheel spacers are whole round heads. This is because BONOSS wheel spacers are made of high-strength 6061-T6 and 7075-T6 aluminum alloy materials. After continuous tons of pressure, the forging process eliminates internal voids/gas pockets that weaken metal parts, maximizing fatigue resistance and increasing impact strength. They are firmly pressed in the 20mm Tesla Model X wheel spacers. You don’t need to worry about any loose issues.
High-end 20mm Tesla Model X wheel spacers are always well-treat before leaving the factory. The Dacromet-coating wheel studs are considered to be one of the best corrosion-resistance studs. This type of coating gives salt spray resistances exceeding 500 hours. Most importantly, Dacromet coating does not induce Hydrogen Embrittlement, which means that high-tensile components like wheel studs and lug nuts can be safely coated.
