Using Jeep wheel spacers is OK. Many people have been running Jeep wheel spacers on Wrangler JL/JK/TJ/YJ, Gladiator JT, Wagoneer WS, Grand Cherokee WK2/ZJ/WJ/WK, Commander XK for several years and they never had the slightest problem. In fact, they are no different than offset wheels. As long as the Jeep wheel spacers fit properly and are correctly torqued, there will be no issues. By enlarging the track width, they add more stability. It allows for better grip and traction. Hence you will have better handling especially when cornering.
As a matter of fact, these Jeep wheel spacers are important parts of many SUVs and pickup trucks, particularly those with bigger tires. Since spacers push the rims away, these Jeep wheel spacers keep the wheels balanced and prevent them from rubbing against any suspension components. Due to the increased inner wheel clearance, you are less limited to aftermarket brake and wheel options. These Jeep wheel spacers are good for those enthusiasts who want to make their SUVs and trucks look cooler and more aggressive.
Can I Daily Drive with Jeep Wheel Spacers?
Yes, you can drive daily with Jeep wheel spacers. Spacer companies design wheel spacers based on vehicle-specific factors like the bolt pattern and how much force it can handle. For instance, if the bolt pattern of the 2023 Jeep Wrangler is 5×5”, then 5×5” spacers will perfectly fit. So, genuine brand manufacturers focus on performance, durability, and safety instead of just looks. The brand Jeep wheel spacers are often made with premium material which is rarely a problem.
When choosing the Jeep wheel spacers for brakes, there are some aspects you should take into consideration. In brief words, it would be even better if the spacers can solve the rubbing problem and provide more functions. BONOSS forged active cooling Jeep wheel spacers improve brake cooling efficiency. The heat dissipation grooves send the external cold air to flow continuously inside the wheel spacer when it rotates. The air takes away the heat, so it achieves the purpose of actively dissipating heat for the braking system.
What Are the Safest Jeep Wheel Spacers?
When it comes to safe Jeep wheel spacers, wheel lugs are important. High-strength wheel studs and nuts ensure a strong wheel-spacer-hub connection. The provided wheel studs of BONOSS Jeep wheel spacers are made of high-strength forged SCM440 alloy steel. They have achieved ISO standard grade 12.9, tensile strength≥ 1,220 MPa, limited life range test ≥ 2,000,000 stress cycles without damage, ultimate tensile load ≥ 152,000 N, hardness (HV) ≥ 395, and neutral salt spray ≥ 500H. With higher strength, your Jeep wheel spacers can bear more force without breaking.
Additionally, these BONOSS Jeep wheel spacers come with ISO grade 10 wheel nuts. The minimum proof load of ISO grade 10 lug nuts is 1,100 MPa which far exceeds the standard grade 6. Besides, they are Dacromet-coating. This type of coating gives salt spray resistances exceeding 500 hours. Most importantly, Dacromet coating does not induce Hydrogen Embrittlement, which means that strong components like wheel studs and nuts can be safely coated. Equipped with such hardware, the Jeep wheel spacers are much better and safer.
