This sporty Kia K5 gets BONOSS Forged Active Cooling 5×114.3 Wheel Spacers installed, a nice upgrade of the appearance. Wheel spacers are wheel accessories that are installed between the brake rotors and wheels. The purpose of installing wheel spacers is to reduce the ET/offset of the wheels, which widens your vehicle’s track. This adds more stability and improves handling even when the tire size does not change. After measuring the wheel gap, the owner chooses front 15mm + rear 20mm K5 wheel spacers to fill the wheel arches. As long as you use reputable spacers and correctly installed them, not only are they safe, but they can end up making your vehicle safer than the stock setup too. (Thanks to the owner for supporting)
How to choose safe Kia K5 wheel spacers? Some Kia K5 owners only intend to push their wheels out a bit for the ultimate fitment, a smaller spacer such as a 15mm may be sufficient, others may need a 1-inch or even 2-inch aero spacer for completing the look of a widebody K5. If you have added those sexy aftermarket wheels, make sure you have spacers of the proper thickness to correct the wrong offset. If you had clearance issues at the brake, then the thickness depends on the increased height of the caliper. If it is the rim ET/offset issues, then the thickness depends on the change amount, for example, your stock wheels’ ET is 50, you would like to install an ET 65 wheel, then you need 15mm thick spacers to correct the wrong offset.
Are Kia K5 Wheel Spacers Safe?
Typically, wheel spacers are very safe mods, whether they are safe or dangerous depends on the quality and installation. In the market, wheel spacers made from aircraft-grade aluminum are the basis of quality fender spacers. BONOSS Kia K5 wheel spacers apply forged 6061-T6 (tensile strength≥310Mpa) or 7075-T6 (tensile strength≥572Mpa) billet aluminum material, which ensures higher strength, service range, and safety than those cheap casting aluminum spacers. Besides, they are hub-centric wheel spacers that offer a better system of support and stability. The hub-centric lip fills the gap between the wheels and the vehicle hub, this makes a stable wheel-spacer combination and helps reduce the high-speed vibration.
