In the market, the Civic Type R wheel spacers may look the same. The best Civic Type R wheel spacers must be vehicle-specific. For a 2022 – 2024 Civic Type R FL5, that’ll be the following: bolt pattern (PCD): 5x120mm; center bore: 64.1mm, thread pitch: M14x1.5mm. Now, most Civic Type R wheel spacers are hub-centric for a firm and stable wheel connection. Knowing the bolt pattern and center bore is important before buying the best Civic Type R wheel spacers.
These Civic Type R wheel spacers essentially reduce the distance from the wheel center to the hub assembly, thus they subtract the offset. For an OEM wheel setup, 15 – 25mm is the best size to achieve a perfect flush stance. The precise size of Civic Type R wheel spacers may differ if you have changed the OEM wheels and tires. Giving an example, if you get a +65mm offset rim, then a 1″ spacer changes the offset to be +40mm (65mm – 25mm = 40mm). Each time when changing wheel width, you have to consider a set of proper Civic Type R wheel spacers to make the offset correct.
Do Civic Type R Wheel Spacers Wear Out Tires?
Actually, the Civic Type R wheel spacers themselves don’t wear out tires. As long as you install them properly, spacers should not cause any uneven tire wear. Tire rubbing will happen if the wheel offset does not match. For instance, high-offset wheels are likely to stick into the inner wheel arches, which makes them hit the big brakes, shock absorbers, fenders, or other parts. With the help of Civic Type R wheel spacers, you can fix the wrong offset. Always choose the right size wheel spacers, and you will have safe and enjoyable driving.

Are Civic Type R Wheel Spacers Hard to Remove?
When upgrading to a new brake kit or changing to different Honda Civic Type R wheel spacers, you have to remove the old spacers. Removing wheel spacers should not be hard, but a spacer can get stuck due to rust accumulation. So, it is important to use rustproof spacers. When aluminum is exposed to water it creates a film of aluminum oxide over the metal that protects the metal beneath it from corrosion. So, aluminum Honda Civic Type R wheel spacers are better resistant to rust and corrosion.
What’s better, to make the removal process easier, BONOSS forged active cooling Honda Civic Type R wheel spacers come with disassembly grooves. There are some small notches that are distributed on the corner of the Honda Civic Type R wheel spacers. When the spacer fits on the brake rotor, each notch will leave a limited clearance between the rotor and the spacer. It is proved to be a useful design, which improves the disassembly efficiency greatly. Take a look at these BONOSS forged active cooling Honda Civic Type R wheel spacers now!
