What do wheel spacers do? Wheel spacers are a kind of aftermarket wheel components. They’re a simple and inexpensive upgrade that provides many advantages to your vehicles. By pushing the wheel away an ideal distance from the hub, it creates spaces between the wheel and hub. Installing wheel spacers can create extra clearance to push the wheels outward to correct the wrong offset as well as pass larger calipers for wheel fitment. They can also bring your wheels flush with the fender flares. (Thanks CP MOTORSERVICE CENTER for providing these pics)

Installing wheel spacers offers many benefits to your vehicle. The most popular benefits include: enhanced handling, a better stance, a more aggressive look, increased wheel track, cleared the clearance issues of bigger brake calipers and inner fender and suspension clearance issues after mounting bigger wheels and tires. European cars usually use wheel lug bolts to secure the wheels to the hubs. In this case, slip-on style wheel spacers 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 the wheel spacers. All BONOSS slip-on style wheel spacers are matching with extended lug bolts with appropriate length, seat type and thread to suit your specific vehicle.

How thick wheel spacers do you 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, but don’t go overboard here. 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 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. Use proper size of spacers not only ensure safety but also avoid breaking your local laws and regulations. Currently, 3mm-110mm thickness wheel spacers are available.

How to confirm the seat type of extended bolts?

Typically, it is the same seat type as the stock bolts you’re using. There are conical seat, R12 ball seat, R13 ball seat, R14 ball seat,  flat seat, etc. For the factory wheels, the seat type of the extended bolts must be the same as the factory wheel bolts. For the aftermarket wheels, the seat type of the extended bolts must be the same as the type of the aftermarket wheels. It is essential that the wheel bolts seat and the wheel lug seat match. If the wheel bolts seat type does not fit the wheel seat type, it is possible that the wheel bolts would be bent or damage the wheel. The mismatch could potentially cause the bolt to loosen and the wheel to become insecure to the vehicle.
