What do BMW F10 wheel spacers do? Here is an answer from the owner of this BMW 5 Series F10 – to enhance the appearance and performance. A not ideal clearance between the wheels and wide fenders calls upon the BMW F10 wheel spacers to be installed. After your finest BMW F10 body kits upgrades, you may find that there is a “big space” that lies between the wheel and arch. This is because the widened fenders make your BMW F10 stock wheels look more inset in the suspension. Installing BMW 5×120 wheel spacers is one of the easiest and most cost-effective options to get flush the fender line. Honestly, properly filled wheel arches really make your 5 Series F10 look wonderful. (Thanks CAR SERVICE&TUNING for supporting.)
Are wheel spacers safe for BMW F10? Totally, yes. As long as you use high-quality spacers and install them correctly, wheel spacers are just as safe as normal wheels and brakes changing. BONOSS wheel spacers have been designed specially to fit your BMW F10. Wide-body kit upgrades from manufacturers such as Mansory, Hamann, Veilside, KBD, HPP, TECHART, and others are able to be easily fitted with BONOSS BMW 5×120 wheel spacers. In addition, BONOSS wheel spacers are designed with hub-centric lip. Hub-centric spacers offer a better system of support and stability. They can be used to change the center diameter of your car, making it possible to install wheels with different center diameters to your vehicle properly, transforming lug-centric wheels into hub-centric wheels, in this case, they are called BMW wheel adapters.
How Thick BMW F10 Wheel Spacers Do I Need?
Pushing the wheels outwards to an ideal position increases the distance between the left and right wheels. A wider wheel track offers better traction, leading to more stability and better handling performance for your BMW 5 Series F10. We recommend you do the necessary groundwork to measure and determine what size you will ultimately need as every vehicle are different and may require different sized spacers. The normal method is that: use a straight edge such as a metal ruler, place the straight edge on the outermost part of the rims where the wheel comes closest to the fender (preferably the top), then, measure from the outside wheel to the straight edge. This distance is the size F10 spacer you will need to achieve the look that flushes or nearly flushes with the fender. Too thin, you will still have wheel/caliper interference. Too thick, and your tires will hit the fenders. For this BMW 5 Series F10, front/rear 25mm(≈1″) is perfect fitting.
How to Install F10 Wheel Spacers Safely?
The F10 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 bolts (the clamping force is not enough) or overtightened lug bolts (the wheel bolt has been stretched past its tensile strength limit, so the clamping force has gone away) will cause most lug bolt failures. Find a suitable balance in the level of tightness and the wheel bolt will remain strong, providing the greatest possible force to lock the wheel to the hub. This ensures the wheel spacers safe.
