The Nissan Altima wheel spacers are designed for aesthetic and fitment purposes. To improve the appearance and performance, increasing the wheels and tires size has now become a common modification. By creating clearance to interior wheel well components, they allow for fitting larger wheels and tires without rubbing issues. How big Nissan wheel spacers are safe? The thicker wheel spacers you install, the greater distance that the wheels will be moved outwards. The more interior clearance is increased, but the higher chance you may rub the fender or wheel well liner. To figure out how big of a Nissan Altima wheel spacer is safe, it is necessary to measure the fender clearance. For factory Nissan Altima, using 15mm wheel spacers front & rear is perfect to get a flushed stance.
How much offset is a 15mm spacer? The Nissan Altima wheel spacers provide a similar effect as negative offset wheels. When you get new wheels and tires, you must remember to take into account the wheel offset. If you’re planning on adding positive offset wheels (these wheels will stick in the interior wheel well more), without the proper Altima 5×114.3 wheel spacers, your tire will rub against the interior wheel well and can potentially cause the tire to wear out. Assuming your stock wheel has a +55 offset, and then put a 15mm spacer on the wheel, that will push the tire out about the same as someone just using a +40 offset wheel (55 – 15 = 40).
What are the Pros of Nissan Altima Wheel Spacers Before and After?
After installing 15mm wheel spacers your Nissan Altima will look great with flushed wheels. By pushing the wheels further away from the vehicle hub, they increase the track width, hence reducing body roll. This helps improve your tires’ lateral grip. The tires are more evenly loaded, which leads to better handling of the car and faster acceleration coming out of a corner. Aesthetically, by adding the proper amount of extra space between the rim and the wheel hub, the wheels will stick out to flush the fenders, giving your car a more sporty and fiercer look. All of these benefits come without changing the wheel and tire size.
Will Altima 15mm Wheel Spacers Cause Rubbing?
As long as you set it up correctly, the Nissan Altima 15mm spacers will not cause any rubbing issues. To keep wheels from rubbing against the fender and wheel well line, measuring from the inside lip of the fender well to the inside of the straight edge. This distance is the size spacer you will need to get the wheels flush with the fender and the maximum distance that wheels will not rub the fender. Nissan 15mm wheel spacers will make the offset lower and push the wheel further outside the fender. If your wheels have too low of an offset, to avoid rubbing issues, it is better to use thinner wheel spacers such as 5mm – 10mm spacers.
