Is using Tundra 4×4 wheel spacers safe? Can these Tundra TRD wheel spacers cause problems? Will off-roading Tundra wheel spacers lead to vibration? These topics are becoming popular in the off-road community with the release of the new generation 2022 Toyota Tundra. It is a perfect truck for 4×4 activities. Certainly, a lot can be done to them to double the 4×4 off-roading experience. Wheel spacer provides a cost-effective way to keep your current wheels while creating a much wider track plus a lower center of gravity. In return, you will experience more grip when cornering, which allows for a rapid acceleration as you exit curves. If you use Tundra 4×4 wheel spacers of proper thickness, you can adopt bigger tires and larger performance brakes with no problems. Derived from 10+ Toyota Tundra 4×4 wheel spacers manufacturing experience, having witnessed countless successful cases, we have the confidence to say that as long as the 2022 Tundra TRD 4×4 spacers are made of top quality material, they are completely safe when installed correctly with care and patience.
Is Using 2022 Toyota Tundra 4×4 Wheel Spacers Safe?
Yes, they are actually safe. Quality 2022 Tundra 4×4 wheel spacers will not cause any problems. When choosing quality wheel spacers, material selection can be very important. In the market, wheel spacers made from aircraft-grade (or higher) aluminum are the basis of quality Tundra 4×4 spacers. Mostly, the tensile strength of your Tundra TRD wheel spacers is the maximum amount of tensile stress that it can be subjected to before failure. So, if a 4×4 wheel spacer has high tensile strength, it essentially means that it can resist a lot of tension before it breaks.
Yield strength is also very important for your Toyota Tundra 6×139.7 wheel spacers since it is the maximum stress that can be applied before it begins to change shape permanently. So, if a Tundra spacer has high yield strength, it essentially means that it can resist a lot of tension before it breaks. When facing bump and impact loads, higher yield strength is able to withstand such loading for a longer period of time so as to avoid wheel spacers failure. Higher yield strength also equals safer and higher performance.
Although many stores claim that they are selling 6061-T6 aluminum spacers, but they are not made by the forged process. In fact, they are cheap casting spacers. Forging provides higher performance spacers than casting. BONOSS forged 2022 Toyota Tundra 4×4 wheel spacers are safer and stronger than those casting alternatives: Tensile Strength≥310Mpa (AL6061-T6), Tensile Strength≥572Mpa (AL7075-T6), Yield Strength≥275Mpa (AL6061-T6), Yield Strength≥503Mpa (AL7075-T6), and the Tensile Strength of the cheap alternatives is approximately 125Mpa below.
Do 2022 Toyota Tundra 4×4 Wheel Spacers Cause Vibration?
Many car owners worry about whether the Toyota Tundra TRD 4×4 wheel spacers will cause vibrations. As a matter of fact, wheel spacers in themselves don’t cause vibration, they are just increasing the track of the left and right wheels. In this way, the weight of your Tundra TRD is distributed on all the wheels equally which in turn improves the comfort of car handling. However, a few causes may lead to vibration:
- Using cheap casting wheel spacers. If the Tundra 4×4 wheel spacers are low-quality, your wheels would knock off or be lost. Never use a cheap spacer!
- Using lug-centric wheel spacers. Lacking the hub’s support, sometimes the wheels may be out of balance through some fierce impacts.
- It’s possible that the wheels didn’t seat correctly on the spacers. Double-check if the lug nuts are properly torqued to secure wheels is necessary to keep the wheel from loosening.
There are a few suggestions to avoid vibration. Firstly, getting rid of the cheap casting wheel spacers and making sure everything was mating up correctly. Generally speaking, good Tundra 4×4 wheel spacers don’t cause any vibration. BONOSS only uses high-grade forged 6061-T6 or 7075-T6 billet aluminum alloy material for higher performance and safety. This means they provide stronger impact resistance, less fatigue strength, longer service life range, and stronger corrosion resistance. We recommend hub-centric Tundra 4×4 spacers rather than lug-centric spacers. Hub-centric spacers offer a better system of support and stability. They are designed to make a snug connection between the wheel and vehicle hub, ensuring the hub carries the weight of the car instead of the wheel studs. After installing wheel spacers, it is a good idea to double-check whether all lug nuts are tightened to the manufacturer’s specification with a properly calibrated torque wrench. It is always a great idea to regularly inspect torque specs before and after each off-road trip, regardless if you have spacers or not.
