Yes, you can put wheel spacers on a Tesla EV. High-quality spacers won’t negatively affect your car. When the rims and tires are not ideal for your car design, spacers will be helpful. They will move your wheels outwards from the corresponding vehicle hubs, hence reducing the offset. In this case, Tesla wheel spacers are the most cost-effective solution to prevent tires from hitting any other suspension components. Making the spacers match your specific tires provides a safe fitment as well as an excellent appearance.
Based on the manufacturing processes, there are various Tesla wheel spacers. In brief words, forged spacers are the safest and strongest of this bunch. As the name suggests, these EV spacers are forged out of aluminum billets. Due to continuous tons of pressure, the resulting wheel spacers have a high degree of uniformity in the grain structure which allows the wheel spacers to have a very high weight-to-strength ratio. If you just add Tesla spacers, there should be no difference in driving range.
Should I Shorten Stock Studs for Tesla Wheel Spacers?
If your wheel pockets are deep enough, you don’t have to shorten stock studs for Tesla wheel spacers. The wheel pockets depth + spacer thick ≥ stud length, then the wheel spacers will fit properly. Giving an example, if the depth of the wheel pocket is 10mm, and the OEM stud length is 26mm, then installing 25mm (1″) wheel spacers will perfectly fit (10+25 ≥ 26). As long as there is still enough thread length, it is safe to cut wheel studs for Tesla spacers
BONOSS provides ISO grade 12.9 wheel studs to safely secure your Tesla wheel spacers. These high-strength studs are approved by SGS and TÜV. And the performance results are great: tensile strength ≥ 1,220 MPa; ultimate tensile load ≥ 152,000 N; proof load ≥ 121,000 N. These SGS TÜV-certified wheel studs are completely safe to use. If you need longer wheel studs for your new Tesla spacers, you can buy them online at the BONOSS website.
Do Tesla Wheel Spacers Fall Out Easily?
Decades of optimization and countless cases have proven that high-quality aluminum Tesla wheel spacers are exactly safe and do not easy to fall out if you installed them correctly. Get your spacers installed by a professional. Some people overlook critical installation steps, for example, leaving rust on the rotors, and not rechecking torque initially. This will cause problems. It is always required to use a good torque wrench to safely secure the Tesla wheel spacers.
BONOSS Aluminum Tesla wheel spacers are hard-anodizing to resist corrosion so that they can work well for a long time without any problems. A proper hard anodizing coating ensures complete protection against corrosion. The oxide layer that follows the anodizing process offers excellent protection. The black dye not only brings a premium appearance but also tends to be lightfast. This means that the coatings will not fade easily. BONOSS Tesla wheel spacers will serve you in the long run.
