What are the pros and cons of BMW G08 wheel spacers? What are G08 wheel spacers? Here is an example from this BMW G08 iX3. When the offset of your stock or aftermarket wheels is insufficient, the G08 wheel spacers would make up the custom offset by pushing the wheels away from the vehicle hub. Having your wheel brought out the ideal distance allows for mounting big brake kits without rubbing the suspension components. Many BMW iX3 owners often install spacers to achieve more stability especially while cornering the vehicle and a more aggressive stance. Your BMW iX3 becomes more stable, this is effective when the vehicle is driven in bad weather. (Thanks AOLI AUTO for providing these pics)
How to choose BMW G08 wheel spacers? Installing BMW G08 wheel spacers offers many benefits to your vehicle. There are usually two types of wheel spacers: One type simply slides into the hub and come with their own lug studs and nuts, they are named “bolt-on wheel spacers”, while the other type bolts to the vehicle hub with another set of extended wheel bolts, they are called “slip-on wheel spacers”. European cars usually use wheel lug bolts to secure the wheels to the hubs. In this case, slip-on style BMW G08 wheel spacers 5×112 will be your most suitable choice. To ensure a proper installation, you will also need to use new extended wheel bolts which are longer than the stock ones by the thickness of your G08 spacers.
