They are machined to fit the specific vehicle hub.

Being a high-end wheel spacer company, it is sure that the designs are exquisite and geared towards improving performance and aesthetics. BONOSS forged active cooling WRX wheel spacers are finished with a textured surface on the sides. The side knurling design eliminates internal stress which contributes to more reliable product mechanical properties. The crisscross knurling pattern enlarges the cooling area which is good for the active cooling effect.
