If you own a Lamborghini Gallardo, you may have considered installing Lamborghini Gallardo wheel spacers to improve the appearance and performance of your car. Wheel spacers are metal discs that fit between the wheel hub and the rim, creating a wider stance and pushing the wheels outwards. They can enhance the stability, handling, and cornering of your vehicle, as well as give it a more aggressive look.

How do you choose the right size of Lamborghini Gallardo wheel spacers for your Gallardo?
TO choose the size of spacers, you ought to consider the bolt pattern, the hub bore, the offset, and the clearance.
Bolt pattern: The bolt pattern is the number and arrangement of bolts that secure the wheel to the hub. The Lamborghini Gallardo has a 5×112 bolt pattern, which means it has five bolts arranged in a circle with a diameter of 112 mm. You need to make sure that the wheel spacers you buy have the same bolt pattern as your car, otherwise, they will not fit.
Hub bore: The hub bore is the diameter of the hole in the center of the wheel spacer that matches the hub of your car. The Lamborghini Gallardo has a hub bore of 57.1 mm, which means you need to buy wheel spacers with a hub bore of 57.1 mm. If the hub bore is too small, the wheel spacer will not fit over the hub. If the hub bore is too large, you may need to use hub-centric rings to fill the gap and prevent vibrations.
Offset: The offset is the distance between the centerline of the wheel and the mounting surface of the hub. The offset determines how far in or out the wheel sits in relation to the fender. The Lamborghini Gallardo has an offset range of 40 to 50 mm, which means that the mounting surface of the hub is 40 to 50 mm away from the centerline of the wheel. If you want to keep the same offset as your stock wheels, you need to subtract the thickness of the wheel spacer from the original offset. For example, if your stock wheels have an offset of 45 mm and you want to install 10 mm wheel spacers, you need to buy wheels with an offset of 35 mm
Clearance: The clearance is the amount of space between the wheel and the brake caliper, the suspension components, and the fender. You need to make sure that there is enough clearance for the wheel to rotate freely and safely. The Lamborghini Gallardo has a minimum clearance of 3 mm for the brake caliper and 5 mm for the suspension and the fender. You can measure the clearance by using a ruler or a feeler gauge. If the clearance is too small, you may need to use smaller wheel spacers or wheels with a higher offset.
So, which size of wheel spacers are best for your Lamborghini Gallardo? The answer depends on your personal preference and budget. Generally speaking, you can use Lamborghini Gallardo wheel spacers ranging from 5 to 20 mm in thickness, depending on the offset and clearance of your wheels. You can also use different sizes for the front and rear wheels, depending on the look and performance you want to achieve. As a reference, you can use 10 mm wheel spacers for the front wheels and 15 mm wheel spacers for the rear wheels to create a wider rear track and a more balanced handling.
Which Lamborghini Gallardo wheel spacers are best?
Whatever size of wheel spacers you choose, make sure that they are made of high-quality materials and can fit your vehicle. One of the quality spacer brands I recommend is BONOSS. BONOSS Lamborghini Gallardo wheel spacers are made from high-quality materials like forged aerospace degree 7075-T6 aluminum alloy. This alloy is the toughest and most durable material utilized for spacers. Besides, the equipped wheel bolts and nuts also apply high-quality material. The bolts are ISO grade 12.9, and the nuts are ISO grade 10. You can get the most quality wheel spacers in BONOSS.
They are of outstanding fitment to your Lamborghini Gallardo. Professionally measured the PCD, BC, and other data of every model of Lamborghini, BONOSS CNC-machine 0.02mm tolerance spacers. Besides, BONOSS Lamborghini Gallardo wheel spacers are multi-stage and hub-centric. Compared to lug-centric spacers, hub-centric spacers are secure and balanced. The lip on the center of the spacers can secure the spacers and wheel bores tightly. The multi-stages on the lip and behind the lip are devised to fit the chamfers in the hub bore and wheel bore. If you mount BONOSS spacers onto the hub yourself, you can feel it is so snug.
