NISSAN NISMO is popular for its consistent sports performance and the additional comfortable road experience. The 2021 NISMO has tuned 3.7-L, VQ V6 engine, H-pipe free-flow dual exhaust, massive 14’’ 4-piston front brakes and 13.8’’ 2-piston rear brakes, competition-tuned independent suspension, and RAYS forged alloy wheels. If you are a fan of performance cars, such an aggressive beast must have captured your heart. Is this enough? I think you most likely want to make it more aggressive. Wheel spacers are always used in the modification of NISSAN NISMO for aesthetic and performance purposes. Besides the basic function on appearance, the main effect is to regulate the ET/offset of the wheel to an appropriate range. This can give your NISMO more outstanding handling. If you are planning to select the best wheel spacers for your vehicle, you should take these items into considerations.
Accurate Measurement of Wheel Spacers Size
Although the price and quality can be reckoned as references, the product is just a piece of useless iron for you unless you choose the right size. The data of bolt pattern, center bore, thickness, lug fastener, lug thread, rim width, and ET/offset are all critical for determining the size of wheel spacers. These are easily available from the user manual. The thickness relies on the distance between the outer surface of the rim and the fender line, or the extra clearance caused by your upgraded components such as brake and suspension, or the additional ET/offset caused by the upgraded rim. The ignorance of specific data will not only lead to rubbing issues and vibration but more severely will threaten life. However, if you have the correct size and installation, wheel spacers will even improve the safety of the components.
More Tight Connection of Wheel Spacers
Judging from the center, there are hub-centric and lug-centric wheel spacers. Hub-centric means the center bore of the wheel spacers can perfectly match the axle, and the lugs are used to fix them tightly between the axle and the hub. Lug-centric wheel spacers always have a larger center bore to fit with more sizes, but all the pressure move on the studs, which is very dangerous. Judging from the fitting method, they are classified into bolt-on and slip-on wheel spacers. Bolt-on wheel spacers are always equipped with wheel bolts. The design can provide stronger tightness with double kits of wheel bolts. On contrary, slip-on wheel spacers are directly connected to the axle through the factory studs. Although they are simple to install at home, the stud length, the rubbing issues even premature problems are significant negative effects.
High-quality Material of Wheel Spacers
When it comes to every accessoryyou add to the original NISMO, the quality must be under the strict standard. Don’t bring yourself to cut corners on wheel spacers because shoddy products can not stand the high strength under high speed, especially for performance cars like NISSAN NISMO. Aluminum Alloy 6061-T6 and Aluminum Alloy 7075-T6 are common materials on high-performance wheel spacers. They all feature lightweight, good hardness and toughness, great corrosion resistance, and abrasion resistance. The ultimate tensile strength, tensile yield strength, and fatigue strength are the most frequent data to distinguish whether a material durable or not. In addition, the process technology also make difference. Generally, casting wheel spacers are slightly inferior to forged wheel spacers.
In a word, no matter what fitment you upgrade, like brake, independent suspension, wider wheel track, lightweight body kit, outstanding fender line, and others may rub against the wheel or might influence the handling, wheel spacers can serve as a kind of remedy. But make sure you purchase the best quality products from a legitimate company. As for BONOSS, our global first patented technology of “active cooling” can improve the heat dissipation efficiency of your NISMO. The design refers to the aerodynamic theory, and the complicated “knurling” process also helps to reduce the heat by increase the contact surface with air. BONOSS Wheel Spacers are certificated by national independent organizations SGS and TUV. High-quality and professional are what we adhere to.
