The answer is yes. Wheel spacers are safe and useful for Tesla cars. Some of the aftermarket wheels you think would look really nice on your vehicle. But the offset doesn’t fit. To ensure safety, wheels have to fit on the car without contacting any brake, fender line, or suspension parts. That is why people use Tesla wheel spacers to push the wheels outward for a safe configuration as well as a more aggressive appearance.
These Tesla wheel spacers are installed between the assembly hub and wheel. The wheel lugs apply a clamping force to secure the spacer and wheel to the vehicle hub. This will not change wheel fastening method. When the lug nuts are properly tightened, the wheel studs can keep everything in the right place. As long as you use high-quality Tesla wheel spacers and install them properly, it is worry-free to add wheel spacers on your Tesla cars.
What Size Tesla Wheel Spacers Are Safe?
The safest Tesla wheel spacers are the ones that fit the vehicle and meet your requirements perfectly. The allowable thickness of spacers varies by vehicle. The most common way is to measure the distance from the outer tire edge to the fender line. Assuming this distance is 15mm. Installing wheel spacers below this thickness usually will be very safe and beneficial. Proper Tesla wheel spacers improve the safety of your big wheels or larger brake setup.
Brand companies have superior quality Tesla wheel spacers made to handle more stress without failure. The high precision machining, professional design, actual fitment tests, and ISO standard certifications make BONOSS Tesla wheel spacers safe and reliable.
