What do Land Cruiser 300 Series (LC300) wheel spacers do for 4×4? Can Land Cruiser wheel spacers cause problems? Are Toyota LC300 wheel spacers safe for off-roading? Nowadays, the new Toyota Land Cruiser model is popular among the off-road community. It is no exaggeration to say that the Toyota Land Cruiser 300 Series is one of the most respected car nameplates in the automotive world. Certainly, a lot can be done to them to double the 4×4 off-roading experience. Wheel spacers have been widely used for decades. They are made of steel or aluminum, which are used to widen the track of cars, also widely used to fix backspacing and clearance issues. Drive with 10+ wheel spacers manufacturing experience, having witnessed countless successful cases, we have the confidence to say that as long as the 300 Series Land Cruiser spacers you buy are reputable and made of top quality material, they are completely safe when installed correctly with care and patience.
Will the Toyota Landcruiser 300 Series (LC300) Spacers Cause Vibrations?
No. Quality Landcruiser (LC300) wheel spacers will not cause vibration. 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 LC300 spacers. When you find a reputable store, you’ll find that they use 6061-T6 or 7075-T6 billet aluminum as the material of spacers. Even though, knowledge of the Tensile Strength and Yield Strength is also important when choosing your safest wheel spacers. Since these features usually represent the upper limit of the stress that can be applied, in other words, how safe are wheel spacers. Mostly, the tensile strength of your Land Cruiser 300 Series (LC300) wheel spacers is the maximum amount of tensile stress that it can be subjected to before failure. So, if a 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 Land Cruiser (LC300) wheel spacers since it is the maximum stress that can be applied before it begins to change shape permanently. So, if a wheel 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.
Will Land Cruiser LC300 Spacers Cause My Wheels to Fall Off?
NO, as long as you use high-quality 6061-T6 or 7075-T6 aluminum wheel spacers, they are very safe, even under off-roading circumstances. 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. It further enhances the hardness and toughness of the spacers. With the same material and cost, the strength and safety of forged spacers are far higher than casting ones. In off-roading events, the wheels usually bear fierce impacts, thus the quality of wheel spacers is very important. BONOSS forged Land Cruiser (LC300) 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. When facing bump and impact loads, higher tensile strength can bear greater forces without breaking.
