No, it is not recommended to stack 2 spacers on one wheel. People double up two 1-inch wheel spacers to make it 2-inch on each side, thinking it will save much money. The saved money doesn’t worth it! Only because it’s three sets of wheel lugs to fasten everything in place. Even if you have torqued down every single lug nut, the spacer can be broken due to different forces.
50.8mm isn’t that much, if you want to space a wheel out 2 inches, then use a 2-inch spacer instead of three sets of joins. It is always a good idea to use one-piece wheel spacers of proper thickness. For ideal performance and suitability, wheel spacers can be custom manufactured to meet exact specifications. The sizes up to 130mm to 350mm with thicknesses from 3mm to 160mm, to accommodate your specific application requirement.
Do Wheel Spacers Fail?
As long as you install them correctly, quality wheel spacers will never fail. This entails purchasing high-quality spacers from reputable companies and having them installed by professional mechanics. The brand manufacturer tests each spacer meticulously to make sure they give the biggest safety or reliability possible. So, you can use wheel spacers for the daily commuters, racing, drifting, or even a patch of off-roading with zero problems.
Wheel spacer failure occurs when they heat up under long, hard applications. In this case, durable and well-dissipated spacers are a priority for safety. Premium aluminum spacers feature great strength, toughness, and hardness. Due to the characteristics of aluminum alloy, they offer better heat dissipation as well as corrosion resistance. This allows them to operate well at a higher performance in most conditions. You don’t need to worry about the failure issues.
Can You Stack Hub-centric Wheel Spacers?
The rule is the same. Whether they are hub-centric or not, stacking wheel spacers is not a good idea. We recommend using one-piece hub-centric wheel spacers. The hub-centric rings fit perfectly the axle and the space inside the center bore of the wheel. This helps hold the wheel perfectly centered both during installation and road use. This can create a firm and stable wheel connection.
Well-produced hub-centric wheel spacers will fit your car perfectly and precisely. BONOSS wheel spacers are designed with better multi-stage hub-centric rings. The multi-layer design provides the bevels to fit the corresponding hub flange, which eliminates any possible gaps. This effectively ensures a firm wheel connection and better load transition. The wheels are well-balanced so that there will be less chance of vibrations.
