Installing wheel spacers on your 2024 Tesla model can give it a wider, more aggressive stance. However, it’s important to do it properly to ensure safety and performance. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to install 2024 Tesla wheel spacers yourself.

What you’ll need:

  • 2024 Tesla wheel spacers – for best fit and finish, use genuine BONOSS Tesla wheel spacers
  • Jack and jack stands
  • Lug wrench
  • Torque wrench
  • Thread locker

Step 1 – Jack up the car

Park your Tesla on a flat, level surface and engage the parking brake. Loosen the lug nuts on the wheel you’ll be working on, but don’t remove them yet. Position the jack under the manufacturer’s recommended lifting point and raise the car until the wheel is off the ground. Place a jack stand under the pinch weld or frame rail and lower the jack until the stand bears the weight.

Step 2 – Remove the wheel

With the wheel off the ground, finish removing the lug nuts and take the wheel off. Set it aside along with the lug nuts.

Step 3 – Install the spacer

Place the new wheel spacer on the hub, aligning the holes. The spacer should fit snugly against the hub. Apply a few drops of thread locker to the lug studs before sliding the wheel back on over the spacer.

Step 4 – Tighten lug nuts

Hand tighten the lug nuts to hold the wheel in place. Using your torque wrench, tighten the nuts to the manufacturer’s torque spec in a star pattern. Double check each lug nut to ensure proper torque.

Step 5 – Repeat on remaining wheels

Follow steps 1 through 4 to install spacers on the remaining wheels. Be sure to properly lift and support each corner of the car as you work around it.

Step 6 – Re-torque lug nuts

Once finished, lower the car back to the ground and torque the lug nuts again to spec. It’s important to do this second pass of torquing to account for any settling or compression of the suspension components under the weight of the vehicle.

Step 7 – Test drive

Take your Tesla for a short test drive in a safe area, avoiding potholes or harsh bumps. Listen for any noises or sensations that seem abnormal. If everything feels normal, you’re all done!

Tips for safe installation:

  • Only use wheel spacers designed specifically for your Tesla model and wheel setup. Improper fitment can lead to vibration, wheel damage or detachment.
  • Check that the spacer size matches the offset needed for proper wheel alignment. Consult a tire shop if unsure.
  • Follow the torque sequence and spec provided by Tesla or the spacer manufacturer. Proper torque is critical.
  • Periodically check the lug nuts after install to ensure they haven’t loosened.
  • Consider having the wheel alignment checked after installing spacers. Adjustments may be needed.

With some simple tools and mechanical aptitude, you can install Tesla wheel spacers yourself. Just be sure to follow all safety precautions. Or leave it to the professionals if you’re unsure. Wider spaced wheels can dramatically change the look of your 2024 Tesla when done properly.
