Mini Cooper wheel spacers are common as aftermarket parts, but the varying quality of Mini Cooper wheel spacers on the market has led to many unnecessary problems for customers when choosing and using Mini Cooper wheel spacers, including after-sales problems, quality problems, and installation problems. These problems can be avoided when choosing Mini Cooper wheel spacers, and the following will tell you how to identify the best Mini Cooper wheel spacers.
Mini Cooper Wheel Spacers Hubcentric
Mini Cooper belongs to the European models, using wheel bolts for fixed type, and can be used with thinner slip-on wheel spacers or bolt-on wheel spacers, the above two Mini Cooper wheel spacers need to be used with extended bolts, the original bolt does not support the use of Mini Cooper wheel spacers.
The first point you need to identify is whether the Mini Cooper wheel spacers have a hub-centric design, both Japanese and European vehicles are set up with hub assembly hub centric, hub centric on the hub assembly purpose is to connect the corresponding contact surface of the wheels, concentric position will help the wheels in a stable position.
You can find some vehicles using spare tires is only relying on the wheel bolt to fix, which can be used in a short period of time, but in a long period of driving the bolt and bolt hole friction will wear, the wheel will shake, which inspired the design of Mini Cooper wheel spacers, design hub centric restore concentric position, which eliminates the possibility of shaking at high speed due to the installation of Mini Cooper wheel spacers.
Mini Cooper Wheel Spacers Material
The second point you need to identify is the material of the Mini Cooper wheel spacers. The best material at present is 7075-T6 aluminum alloy material, followed by 6061-T6 aluminum alloy material. The tensile strength and yield strength of aluminum alloy material may not be the strongest among all materials, but the weight advantage compared to alloy steel and iron makes aluminum alloy material the ideal material for making Mini Cooper wheel spacers.
You need to distinguish between good aluminum materials, Mini Cooper wheel spacers are made of aluminum, but there are many kinds of aluminum alloys, of which 6061-T6 and 7075-T6 are more commonly used and have better material performance, 6061 and 6061-T6 are different.” It is commonly available in pre-tempered grades such as 6061-O (annealed), tempered grades such as 6061-T6 (solutionized and artificially aged) and 6061-T651 (solutionized, stress-relieved stretched and artificially aged).”
Whether it is 6061-T6 or 7075-T6 aluminum alloy material, they both have good mechanical properties to ensure the safe use of Mini Cooper wheel spacers.
These two points are the key to identifying the good and bad Mini Cooper wheel spacers. Of course, BONOSS products meet the above two points and provide more features designed to serve customers, you can click the picture below to buy your Mini Cooper wheel spacers.
