Knowing how to measure the wheel gap effectively helps you get the correct wheel spacers. Since people need proper space for slight changes in tire size, there is a wheel gap in every car. The wheel gap is determined by the height of the car and the horizontal space between the tires and the inner wall of the fenders. Certainly, most cars look better when the wheel gap is not so pronounced and tires flush to the fender. Wheel spacers can push the wheels outward a certain distance. The further you push the wheels out, the better the handling. But we consider it is best if the wheel is flush with the fender.
The fenders are actually very important when it comes to your vehicle. Installing 1-inch wheel spacers, then the wheels will be pushed out 25mm. Generally, allowing your tires to stick out past the fenders is not a good idea. Because you don’t want the mud, dirt, rocks, and debris that roll from your tires to damage or impede people or vehicles on the road.
What Size Wheel Spacers Do I Need?
Wheel spacers are available in thicknesses from 3mm to 70mm. It does look good if you have the tires stuck out a little bit because it makes the entire vehicle look sporty and powerful. Properly spacing the wheels flush with the fenders is safe. The fenders can still cover your tires. All in all, you need to measure the wheel gap first:
Take a straight edge and place it against the outermost part of the rims/tires. Have straightedge contact the rim or tire in two spots to keep even for correct spacing.
Measure from the outside wheel to the fender lip to see how much space you have available. Repeat this on the front and rear wheels and you’ll soon get a feel for the size of wheel spacers you require.
For instance, if the value is 25mm, then it is recommended to use less than 25mm wheel spacers.
