Wheel spacers are essential for your stance car improvement. Whether you’re just looking to give your car a hellaflush stance, or improve your car’s handling, wheel spacers will be your safe and easy solution. You’ll have a wider track and a lower center of gravity on the axle that you have installed spacers on. This probably means you’ll have a positive scrub radius, which enables your tires to better grip the road surface, you will feel more stable while cornering. You can also install wheel spacers for aesthetic purposes in daily driving. By using spacers, you can make the rims more noticeable while keeping the current wheels. The wheels are pushed outwards a bit, this provides a more sporty look for your car. Alternatively, if you’re running a limited budget, and would like to stick with the stock or aftermarket rims, then spacers can provide an obvious upgrade to ensure that your vehicle still stands out from the crowd.
How Do Wheel Spacers Work?
Wheel fitment is one of the most essential factors when it comes to building your dream low-stance car. Although we are always recommended to ensure your fresh new rims fit the vehicle perfectly before buying, sometimes we have to admit that it’s easier said than done if a bargaining issue (like wrong wheel offset) arises. By pushing the wheels further out, wheel spacers provide a perfect solution to clear the wrong offset issue. They also provide your vehicle with a more substantial track, which will inevitably provide superior traction, handling, and grip benefits.
If you’re looking to run wheel spacers on your vehicle, you’ll specifically need hub-centric units over lug-centric ones. Hub-centric wheel spacers offer a better system of support and stability. The hub-centric lip fills the gap between the wheels and the vehicle hub, this makes a stable wheel-spacer combination, which helps reduce the high-speed vibration. While lug-centric spacers are lacking the hub’s support, all the added force created by turning at high speed can shear lug-centric spacers straight off, which can have life-threatening consequences.

Since there are a number of advantages that wheel spacers can provide, they’re often one of the best cost-effective upgrades you can do to improve both your car’s handling and appearance.

In addition, some manufacturers use low-quality casting materials to save on costs which make the spacers more budget-friendly. Avoid those cheap casting spacers!
