The Tesla Cybertruck wheel spacers are designed to create more clearance and backspacing for wheels. By pushing the wheels further away from the vehicle hub, they increase the track width, hence reduce body roll. This helps improve your tires’ lateral grip. The tires are more evenly loaded, which leads to better handling of your Tesla Cybertruck and faster acceleration coming out of a corner. This is effective especially when you are driving in rough weather or unfavorable conditions. With various thickness Cybertruck spacers, you are able to control how far out your wheels can be. Aesthetically, by adding the proper amount of extra space between the rim and the hub assembly, the wheel will stick out to flush the fender, giving your Cybertruck a more “Cyberpunk” and fiercer look. All of these benefits come without changing the rim and tire size. Over the past decades, wheel spacers have been proven as an economical and high effective way to upgrade your vehicles.

Installing Cybertruck Spacers to Add Bigger Wheels and Tires
The most ingenious thing about Tesla Cybertruck spacers is that they allow you to safely fit wider tires on your existing wheels or upgrade to bigger wheels without rubbing against the frame, axle, or other suspension components. This, of course, improves traction and handling even more. Keeping the backspacing correct allows enough room for the suspension, brake, and steering systems to operate without interference from the wheels. If you have added offset aftermarket wheels, make sure you have wheel spacers of the proper thickness to correct the wrong offset. Given an example, the ideal ET is 24. With an ET49 offset rim, you can put in a 1-inch Tesla Cybertruck spacer to meet fitment. This fills the gap of 25mm from the edge of the fender to the face of the wheel.
Installing Cybertruck Spacers to Slove Brake Clearance Issues
Although upgrading your Tesla Cybertruck to big brake kits will provide a significant performance increase, they may not always fit the stock or aftermarket wheels. In order to accommodate the larger size of performance brake kits, your stock or aftermarket wheels often require the installation of Tesla Cybertruck wheel spacers. They are used to create the necessary distance on the inner portion of the wheel for clearance problems with bigger brake calipers. If you had clearance issues at the brake, then the thickness depends on the increased height of the caliper. By pushing out the wheels, you can gain the ideal amount of clearance for a larger brake instead of rubbing against it when remounting the wheel. With the correct installation, your modification will be safe and beneficial!
Installing Cybertruck Spacers to Complete the Look of Widebody Kits
Using Cybertruck wheel spacers to push the wheels outwards is common practice to complete the cool look of a widebody truck. Typically, widebody builds include new offset wheels and tires, because keeping the current wheels would make your Tesla Cybertruck look like there’s a huge hole in the fender. Hence, if you have added a wide body kit and don’t want to change wheels, then the truck wheel spacers will be your most effective solution. You’ll have a wider track and a lower center of gravity on the axle that you have installed spacers on. There are a few significant benefits available from widening a car with spacers. An increased track width enables your tires to better grip the road surface, you will feel more stable. Most importantly, extending your car’s track also lowers the roll center and reduces the load transfer to the outside wheel when cornering.
