Do I need Jaguar XJ wheel spacers for bigger brake calipers issue? Although upgrading your Jaguar XJ to big brake kits will provide a significant performance increase, they may not always fit the stock or aftermarket wheels. In order to fit the larger size of performance brake kits, your stock or aftermarket wheels often require the installation of wheel spacers. Wheel spacers are used to create the necessary distance on the inner portion of the wheel for clearance problems with bigger brake kits. By pushing out the wheels, you can gain the ideal amount of clearance for larger brakes instead of rubbing against it when mounting back the wheel. Aesthetically, they bring the wheels flush with the fender. (Thanks to the owner for supporting)
Are Jaguar XJ wheel spacers good or bad? Many Jaguar XJ owners often install wheel spacers to achieve more stability especially while turning or cornering the vehicle. Your car becomes more stable as the wheel spacer provides additional width for the wheel track. In this way, the weight of the vehicle is distributed on all the wheels equally which in turn improves the comfort of car handling. For better performance, the owner of this Jaguar XJ chooses to install front/rear 15mm wheel spacers 5×108, and Brembo Brakes. Now, check the before and after:
How to Install Jaguar Wheel Spacers Safely?
The wheel spacers need to be installed correctly, and they also must be properly torqued to manufacturer-recommended torque specs. This means making sure the spacer, wheel, and hub are secured enough to where they don’t get loosen. Untightened lug nuts (the clamping force is not enough) or overtightened lug nuts (the stud has been stretched past its tensile strength limit, so the clamping force has gone away) will cause most lug stud failures. Find a suitable balance in the level of tightness and the stud will remain strong, providing the greatest possible force to lock the wheel to the hub. This ensures the wheel spacers safe.
How Do the Dismounting Grooves Work?
Dismounting grooves means the small notches which are distributed on the corner of the wheel spacers. It is designed to easily dismount the spacers, improving work efficiency. Normally, it leaves a limited clearance between the axle plate and spacer, using a screwdriver can easily remove the spacers, simple and efficient. If there is no such groove, these Jaguar spacers will snug the vehicle hub, by forces effect, it can be difficult to dismount. Even worse, you may destroy the spacers or axle hub. Furthermore, the grooves can act as an air collecting funnel, which is effectively increasing airflow, enhancing the heat dissipation effect.
