How Do GMC Hummer EV Wheel Spacers Work

Installing Hummer EV wheel spacers becomes common practice for various reasons. If you have done it properly, they will provide a distinct look that brings the appearance of your truck to a whole new level. Simply speaking, they are components that attach to your Hummer EV’s wheel studs, the wheel is installed on the spacers, so the tires sit farther out from your vehicle hub. By creating this additional space, they help improve the stability, greatly enhance the corner performance, prevent your wheels and tires from rubbing against wheel well liners, shock absorbers, brakes, or other suspension components. Besides, as the track is widened, your GMC Hummer EV gets a better visual effect. You can safely put spacers on the front or rear axles, but your choice will be down to the model of truck you have and the size of the wheels you’re using.

Why Do You Need Hummer EV Wheel Spacers?

  • Get rid of the tucked look. Most OEM wheels look obviously “retracted” in the wheel arches. With various thickness wheel spacers, you are able to control how far out your wheels can be. They can also improve the look of your GMC Hummer EV by moving the wheels out to be flush with the fender wells.
  • Increase the track for more stability. Wheel spacers will increase your truck’s track width, the wider the track, the lower the amount of weight transfer. This means more grip, the resistance to rollover enhances, your Hummer EV becomes more stable and the comfort level of handling improves a lot. This is effective when you are driving in bad weather or when cornering.
  • Safely add larger wheels and tires. Installing larger wheels improves handling, speed, and control. But the majority of custom wheels won’t fit on standard cars. In this case, adding these Hummer 8 lug wheel spacers will help make sure you can install the wheels and tires you want on your truck without rubbing against the frame, axle, or other suspension components.
  • In addition, conversion wheel spacers (also called wheel adapters) can change the bolt pattern and center bore to allow you to mount wheels that are not made for your car. If you intend to convert PCD/CB for fitting the wheels, then wheel adapters will be your instant and effective solution. Done properly, your modifications will be beneficial.

What Kind of Hummer EV Wheel Spacers Do I Need?

There are two main types of Hummer EV wheel spacers that exist on the market: hub-centric and lug-centric. Hub-centric wheel spacers are designed with a hub-centric lip which is piloted by the center bore of the vehicle hub. With the hub-centric lip, the original axle hub structure is retained. This doesn’t change the way of securing the wheels, meaning no additional force. Besides, BONOSS hub-centric spacers are CNC machining, precision at 0.02mm, which make the hub-centric lip more precise, perfect fit the wheel hub, safer and provides a smoother installing experience than those roughly designed spacers. Lug-centric spacers would mean they are centered only by the lug nuts. Your Hummer EV would need hub-centric wheel spacers to create a strong hub-spacer-wheel connection, which effectively reduces vibration. Spacers have existed around for multiple decades in the off-roading trucks community, and as long as they are high-quality and installed correctly, they are totally safe to use. After installing your Hummer EV spacers, it is always a good idea to double-check whether all lug nuts are tightened to the manufacturer’s specification with a properly calibrated torque wrench.
