How to Choose Safe GMC Hummer EV Wheel Spacers

Mostly, Hummer EV wheel spacers are safe to use. They are a kind of car components for wheel upgrades. Whether you’re planning to use them for daily driving or off-roading needs, if you use quality truck wheel spacers and install them correctly, not only are they safe, but they can end up making your Hummer EV safer than the stock setup too. You’ll have a wider track and a lower center of gravity. This means you can get a positive scrub radius, which enables your tires to better grip the road surface, you will feel more stable while cornering. They are also becoming popular by the day for aesthetic purposes and fitment issues (common example applications like 1-inch wheel spacer Hummer EV, 2-inch GMC wheel spacers, 2022 GMC Hummer wheel spacers). If you’re looking to use spacers on your truck, you’ll specifically need these factors to judge whether they are safe wheel spacers. (Above pictures from https://www.gmc.com/electric/hummer-ev)

Three Factors to Choose Safe Hummer EV Wheel Spacers

  • Material. When choosing safe wheel spacers, material selection can be very important. There are mainly steel and aluminum. Considering the strength and lightweight needs, billet Aluminum is more suitable. Both 6061-T6 and 7075-T6 Aluminum Alloys are high-performance alloys. They feature good corrosion resistance, weldability, workability, and machinability. And forged Aluminum Hummer EV spacers provide stronger impact resistance, less fatigue strength, longer service life range, and stronger corrosion resistance, much safer than those cheap casting spacers.
  • Design. Although almost all wheel spacers are designed to create more clearance, they can come with more additional functions. BONOSS Hummer EV wheel spacers are built with an active cooling function which effectively reduces brake fade, the side knurling design help reduce internal stress as well as enhance heat dissipation. Besides, they are multi-stage hub-centric design, compared to common hub-centric spacers, they fit the wheel hub better, thus safer.
  • Size. It is important to figure out what size Hummer EV spacers do you need, including bolt pattern, center bore, and thickness. Presuming that you had clearance issues at the brake, you want to add only enough thickness to clear the caliper. Then the thickness depends on the increased height of the caliper. If it is the ET/offset issues, then the thickness depends on the change amount, for example, your stock wheels’ ET is 24, you would like to install an ET 49 wheel, then you need 25mm thick spacers to correct the wrong offset.

While their application is perfectly safe, the critical factor of safety is whether you install them correctly. It is recommended to install them under the guidance of a Qualified Mechanic. Your Hummer EV wheel spacers must be properly torqued to manufacturer-recommended torque specs. This means making sure the spacer, wheel, and hub assembly are secured enough to where they don’t get loosen. Untightened lug nuts or overtightened lug nuts will cause most lugs failures. This will cause the wheels to lose balance, resulting in vibration. Avoid buying cheap unbranded spacers, or you may ultimately pay much more for them. It is always a great idea to regularly inspect and give the spacers another check after 100 miles of driving to make sure they’re still in place well and the lug nuts are safely torqued.
