The “Lightweight Plus” of BONOSS Forged Lightweight Plus Wheel Spacers means the further optimized hollow design for lightweight, based on the traditional wheel spacers. It is a proven design that is effectively reducing weight, reducing energy consumption, improving control performance, and achieving a balance between high performance and environmental protection on the premise of ensuring safety and reliability.
1. Obviously lightweight effect, 20% off comparing with the previous production
We can always hear that reducing unsprung weight is better. Theoretically, reducing unsprung weight helps a car’s suspension system work more effectively. It can also provide sharp and enjoyable steering, enhancing wheel structure performance. The less mass of unsprung, the better behavior of the overall ease of acceleration and handling capabilities for a vehicle, especially in the comparison of racing event or competition. In the case of a high-powered supercar like a Mustang or Ferrari, this can make a big difference in the tenths of a second range, equivalent to one to two car lengths at the track.
As a working example, if you’re able to drop 15 pounds per wheel, you’ve effectively removed unsprung weight of nearly 180 pounds – it is a massive load that is taken off of your suspension and chassis which will make your vehicle more responsive and accelerate smoother. The engine systems don’t have to work hard to keep your vehicle motoring, meaning yield a significant uptick in fuel economy.
2. Special disassembly grooves, easy removal
Dismounting grooves means the small notches which are distributed on the corner of wheel spacers. It is designed to easily dismount the spacers, improving the experience. Normally, it leaves a limited clearance between the axle plate and spacer, using a screwdriver can easily remove the spacers, simple and efficient. If there is no such groove, the spacer will snug the vehicle hub, by forces effect, it can be difficult to dismount. Even worse, you may destroy the spacers or axle hub.
3. Side knurling design, effectively increase the cooling effect
Knurling is a finishing procedure used to create any combination of horizontal, vertical, or crossing lines on the surface of components. BONOSS applied such a process for enhancing both the exterior and function of wheel spacers. For decorative reasons, knurling can enhance the aesthetics of the wheel spacers by introducing an attractive pattern to the side surface. In addition to aesthetics, there are practical features. Knurling patterns can enlarge the side area so that it can contact more air, boost the heat dissipation effect, and also reduce internal stress. That means improving the performance, strength and durability of the spacers.
4. Sealed design, preventing rainwater and debris from entering the vehicle hub
One of the critical reasons for vehicle hub corrosion is the rust caused by rainwater or debris. Most importantly, the rust and debris that lie in the hub and rotor mating surface make it impossible to rotate correctly. The hub and wheel bearing connection play a key role in ride safety. The rust or debris will make a clearance which loosens or worn the wheel, distorting the rotor friction face when installing the wheel, eventually leading to vibration and pedal pulsation. Besides, more rust and debris mean more mass, which obviously affects the fuel economy and vehicle handling.
5. The same price but with more features and higher performance
“Lightweight Plus” design is a whole new upgrade of traditional wheel spacers. To achieve such a function, need precise CNC machining. And the processing quality of a wheel spacer mostly comes from the processing accuracy of the production equipment. Precision machining can achieve high surface integrity and dimensional accuracy of wheel spacers. Furthermore, the enhancement of the machining accuracy of mechanical components effectively guarantees the safety, stability and reliability of the quality of wheel spacers, and ensures a smooth operation. Although the “Lightweight Plus” design caused an additional increase in production costs, for better customer experience, we have the ability to borne this cost and maintained the same price as the previous product before the upgrade.
