If you intend to make your BMW X4M look sportier and more noticeable, wheel spacers will be your most cost-effective option. Are BMW wheel spacers safe? There are a lot of rumors that wheel spacers will break the suspension. Since the weight of a vehicle is not sustained by its wheel bolts, the use of BMW F98 wheel spacers is considered to be safe. The vehicle’s wheels are actually fastened to the corresponding wheel hub by a clamping force achieved by tightening the wheel bolts of each wheel. This allows all forces to be transmitted through each vehicle’s hub and its corresponding axle. Therefore, the weight of the vehicle will not be placed on any spacers that are installed. Actually, the BMW spacers simply serve as an extension of the original wheel hub surface.
What Size of BMW Wheel Spacers Do I Need?
Some BMW X4M owners only intend to push their wheels out a bit for the ultimate fitment, 10mm spacers may be sufficient, others may need 1-inch or even 2-inch wheel spacers for completing a widebody look. There is a simple trick to figure out how thick BMW spacers you need to get the wheels flush the fender. Preparing a straight edge metal ruler, place the straight edge on the outermost part of the rims where the wheel comes closest to the fender, then, measure from the outside wheel to the straight edge. This distance is the size BMW F98 spacer you will need to achieve the look that flushes or nearly flushes with the fender.
If you feel the need to go less than 15mm, then we’d recommend slip-on BMW 5×112 spacers with extended wheel bolts. Slip-on wheel spacers that slide over your existing wheel hub, they normally thin in size, e.g., 5mm spacer, 10mm spacers, 15mm spacers. If you using this kind of spacers for rims, it is critical to ensure your stock bolts are long enough for the proper thread engagement. At the minimum, thread engagement length must be equal to or greater than the diameter of the fastener. In other words, if the bolt is 14mm in diameter, the nut must engage onto the stud by at least 14mm. If not, you’ll either need to change to thinner car spacers or get longer and stronger wheel bolts installed.
If you have added BMW F98 wheel spacers, to meet proper thread engagement, the length of the extended wheel bolts should equal the length of stock bolts plus the thickness of the spacer. Giving an example, the stock F98 bolt’s length is 27mm, and you have installed 15mm wheel spacers 5×112, then 42mm wheel bolts will be required. But if you upgraded to aftermarket wheels, then you need to make sure the seat type will fit properly. Most BMW cars’ OEM wheel bolts are conical seat types. Depending on the seat type of the wheel mounting hole surface, there are conical seats, ball seats, and flat seats, etc. Equipping your BMW X4M with the correct lug bolts is very important to ensure the safe and reliable mounting of the wheels.
