If you arrange it properly, wheel spacers won’t mess up your car. Conversely, they make your car perform better. Appropriately pushing the wheels and tires a bit away from the vehicle hub is advantageous. This is because the more wheel inner clearance, the less the chance that the tires bump against the shock absorbers, fenders, or other suspension components. Wheel spacers are also useful when the offset of your wheel is not ideal for the end stance you want to achieve.

In the automotive market, wheel spacers are available in thicknesses from 3mm to 70mm. Spacer size is a crucial aspect of overall safety and functionality. If you would like to figure out the perfect size, measuring the wheel gap is a good idea. Assuming your wheel gap is about 20mm (0.75”), then using 20mm wheel spacers (or a little thinner) will not mess up any part of the suspension.

How to Select Proper Wheel Spacers?

While striving for strength, manufacturers always try to make their wheel spacers as light as possible. If you are looking for spacers with durability and are lightweight, then a forged aluminum spacers kit is a perfect option. For two pieces of equal volume, aluminum wheel spacers can be three times lighter than steel ones. Lighter wheel spacers will operate better in most conditions. Adding such a small lightweight component wouldn’t noticeably slow a car down.

BONOSS forged lightweight plus wheel spacers feature a hollowed design for an extra lightweight advantage. For those who pursue extreme performance, this is good. Due to the hollow holes, the average weight of each BONOSS spacer is more than 30% lighter than the previous-gen product. That is why most customers choose BONOSS forged aluminum lightweight plus wheel spacers for performance improvement and appealing look enhancement.

How to Avoid Wheel Spacers Messing Up Your Vehicle?

Quality wheel spacers should fit the vehicle hub perfectly. This means you won’t have any resistance to installing them. Make sure the hub is clean and smooth. Use the wire brush to remove any rust and dirt from the wheel hub. Wide down the entire surface to ensure it is smooth. This needs to be done thoroughly because any rust will cause the wheel spacers to be installed not completely parallel to the hub.

Checking whether there is a tire rubbing is vital to make the driving as pleasant as possible. After installing wheel spacers, park the car on flat ground, rotate the steering wheel to one extreme position, and inspect the wheel well of the tire that’s outside. If there is a rubbing, you will notice clear signs on the internal fender and the liner. If a rubbing issue occurs, changing to thinner wheel spacers will be a solution.
