For those who have to consider budget, it would cost less to just stack wheel spacers together. For example, you may be thinking about stacking two 1/2 inch spacers to make up a 1-inch spacer. However, it is a good idea? If it is OK, how many wheel spacers can I stack? Generally, it is not recommended to stack one spacer to another. Because this will negatively affect the stability of the spacers.
If these two stacked wheel spacers are subjected to different forces, the wheel bolts could be broken. As time goes by, the wheel bolts loosen. With stacked spacers, you will likely lose the wheel if they are loose enough while you are driving. It is always a good idea to use one-piece wheel spacers of proper thickness. If you need 1-inch wheel spacers, just buy genuine 1-inch spacers. Think again if the saved money really worth it. Proper equipment will always be the best.
What Are Dually Wheel Spacers?
Dually wheel spacers don’t mean stacked wheel spacers. The dually wheel spacers are designed specifically to fit dually tires. They are used to create more backspacing and add a cool wider stance while using factory wheels. This is effective to prevent these two tires from rubbing each other’s sidewall. By increasing the track width, the body of the dually is wider, so your vehicle can tow more weight and is sturdier as well.
As a rule of thumb, the minimum spacer thickness between the rear dually tires is about 1/2 inch (12.7mm). This provides proper space to avoid tire chafing. In addition, it also allows enough space between the rear tires for sufficient heat dissipation. Always make sure you use high-grade quality dually wheel spacers and not cheap casting versions.
Can I Custom Unusual Wheel Spacers Size?
Using a piece wheel spacer for one wheel is considered to be safe. However, depending on different vehicles, the perfect size can be different. If you are looking for unusual thickness wheel spacers, the BONOSS custom department is ready to listen to your requirement. BONOSS has an independent OEM factory, so there are vast customized options available: thickness from 3mm to 160mm, dimension from 130mm to 350mm. OEM/ODM is available. Most BONOSS custom wheel spacers can be completed within 1-3 days.
We offer two materials for selection: forged 6061-T6 aluminum and 7075-T6 aluminum. In short words, 7075-T6 aluminum wheel spacers are far better than 6061-T6 alternatives. For racing, drift, and performance events, 7075-T6 spacers are the best option. However, they tend to be more expensive than the 6061-T6 ones. Your budget is a significant factor. If you must consider the costs of the spacers, 6061-T6 spacers are the perfect solution. Both of these two types of wheel spacers feature good finishing characteristics and respond well to anodizing. A hard anodizing coating ensures complete protection against rust and corrosion.
