This nice Tesla Model Y gets BONOSS Forged Active Cooling 5×4.5″ Wheel Spacers installed. Perfect upgrades! Generally, wheel spacers are used to widen a vehicle’s stance. This is done by creating additional space between the vehicle hub and the wheel. Essentially, the distance that each wheel moves outward is equal to the thickness of the spacer that is used. Wheel spacers are available in various thicknesses, sizes, and bolt patterns. This makes it possible for you to control how far out your wheels can be. According to the structure, they are divided into bolt-on spacers and slip-on spacers. In many cases, the use of slip-on spacers requires one to purchase aftermarket longer studs for the proper thread engagement.
What types of Tesla Model Y wheel spacers do I need? If you feel the need to go above 20mm, then we’d recommend bolt-on spacers. Bolt-on wheel spacers are bolted to the existing studs with the provided lug nuts and then using the stock lug nuts to secure the wheel on the new studs pressed into the spacer. This ensures you can fully engage the lug nuts. You don’t have to change to longer wheel studs. Now, check the front 20mm wheel spacers before and after:
Generally, they are regarded as being somewhat safer than the slip-on style, because they fully engage the lug nuts. The same precautions are still useful, but you’ll need to check the torque of two sets of lug nuts, one set holding the spacer to the hub assembly, and the other set holding the wheel to the spacer.

Are Hubcentric Tesla Model Y Wheel Spacers Safe?
Wheel spacers are used to widen the track of your Tesla Model Y. Whether you’re planning to use them for daily use or racing needs, if you use quality Model Y spacers and install them correctly, they are exactly safe. They are becoming popular by the day for aesthetic purposes and fitment issues (common applications like Tesla 20mm spacers, 25mm spacers). When done right they will improve your vehicle’s handling characteristics, allowing you to easily make turns and go around corners.
Whether bolt-on spacers or slip-on spacers are available in two designs, hub-centric and lug-centric. Hub-centric wheel spacers are safer because they offer a better system of support and stability. They help reduce the high-speed vibration by filling the gap between the wheels and the vehicle hub. While lug-centric spacers are lacking the hub’s support. Some fierce impacts are strong enough to deform the studs, leading to vibration.
