Choosing the best Tesla Model 3 wheel spacers not only makes your electric cars perform better but also makes every penny you spend worth it. There are two main types of Tesla Model 3 wheel spacers, slip-on types, and bolt-on types. Slip-on spacers directly slide over your wheel studs and are sandwiched by the wheel and your vehicle’s wheel hub. The slip-on Tesla Model 3 wheel spacers don’t come with pressed-in wheel studs, so they can be thinner in sizes, like 3mm, 5mm, 8mm, 10mm, and 12mm. But you have to replace the stock wheel studs.
For most Tesla cars, bolt-on Tesla Model 3 wheel spacers will be better. The bolt-on Tesla Model 3 wheel spacers are bolted onto the vehicle wheel studs with the provided lug nuts. Because these spacers are fastened on the vehicle hub with provided lug nuts. Then, you can remount the wheels on the new wheel studs that are pressed in the spacers with the original equipment lug nuts. This doesn’t change the original wheel fastening method. Since bolt-on Tesla Model 3 wheel spacers come with two sets of wheel lugs to fasten everything in place, they are the best Tesla Model 3 wheel spacers type.
Do Slip-on Tesla Model 3 Wheel Spacers Need Longer Studs
Yes, longer wheel studs are a must option for adding Tesla Model 3 wheel spacers. Tire engineers explain that only if the stud thread is long enough can the studs provide proper clamping force to keep these Tesla Model 3 wheel spacers and wheels balanced. It is highly recommended to ensure a minimum of 6 – 8 complete threads of engagement for the lug nuts. For an M14 wheel stud, you would need at least 14mm threads to ensure a safe engagement.
Besides, BONOSS forged lightweight plus Tesla Model 3 wheel spacers are machined with “Hollow Carved” holes. This design provides obviously lightweight effect while maintaining high strength. The weight of BONOSS forged lightweight plus Tesla Model 3 wheel spacers is quite insignificant and completely within the capacity of the suspension parts. What’s better, BONOSS provides ISO grade 12.9 wheel studs (tensile strength≥ 1,220 MPa) to ensure quality exceeds OEM standards. High-strength wheel studs ensure a strong wheel-spacer-hub connection.
What Are the Best Bolt-on Tesla Model 3 Wheel Spacers?
The Tesla Model 3 wheel spacers themselves don’t cause vibration. However, loosening wheel lug nuts are the most common factor that you might experience in a shaking wheel. If your lug nuts are not tightened properly, they may loosen overtimes. Most aftermarket Tesla Model 3 wheel spacers are machined with conical lug seats. It is always a good idea to keep lug nuts fully in contacting the Tesla Model 3 wheel spacers, which would require the full-cone lug seats. In this case, BONOSS forged active cooling Tesla Model 3 wheel spacers come with full-cone lug seats.
Thanks to their improved weight distribution capabilities, BONOSS full-cone seat Tesla Model 3 wheel spacers provide additional security and durability when properly used in comparison to part-cone seat spacers. Their large contact areas with the spacers allow for them to be fastened more efficiently and stalely. If you are looking for an extra layer of safety while mounting your wheels, these BONOSS forged active cooling Tesla Model 3 wheel spacers are definitely worth considering!
