If you have a Land Rover LR4 and you want to upgrade your wheels and tires, you might be wondering if you need wheel spacers. Wheel spacers are devices that fit between the wheel hub and the wheel, creating a gap that pushes the wheel outward. They can provide some benefits, such as improving the appearance, handling, stability and clearance of your LR4. But are they safe for 4×4 driving? Here are some things to consider before installing wheel spacers on your LR4.
Where do LR4 wheel spacers go?
Wheel spacers go between the wheel hub and the wheel, creating a gap that pushes the wheel outward. This changes the wheel background and offset.
Can LR4 wheel spacers cause rubbing?
LR4 wheel spacers will not cause rubbing. On the contrary, some LR4 owners install wheel spacers is to prevent rubbing. Rubbing occurs when the tire comes into contact with the vehicle body or suspension components, especially when turning or going over bumps. This can damage the tire, reduce performance and cause noise. Rubbing can happen when you install larger tires than stock on your LR4, or when you lower your suspension.
Wheel spacers can help prevent rubbing by increasing the clearance between the tire and the vehicle body or suspension components. However, this also depends on other factors, such as the size and width of the tire, the diameter and width of the wheel, and the height and stiffness of the suspension. If you install too large or too wide tires on your LR4, or if you use too thick or too wide wheel spacers, you might end up causing more rubbing instead of preventing it.
Therefore, it is important to choose the right size and type of wheel spacers for your LR4. You should measure the clearance between your tire and your vehicle body or suspension components, and use a wheel spacer that is slightly thinner than that clearance. You should also use hub-centric wheel spacers, which are designed to fit snugly on your hub and center your wheel properly. Hub-centric wheel spacers can prevent vibration, wobbling and uneven wear on your tires.
Can LR4 wheel spacers cause alignment?
Another question that some LR4 owners have about wheel spacers is whether they can affect the alignment of their wheels. Wheel spacers can slightly affect your alignment by changing the geometry of your suspension.
Alignment refers to the angle and direction of your wheels in relation to your vehicle body and road surface. Proper alignment is essential for optimal handling, steering, braking and tire wear. Improper alignment can cause uneven tire wear, poor fuel economy, reduced performance and safety issues.
If you are looking for high-quality and safe wheel spacers for your fast car, you should consider BONOSS LR4 wheel spacers. BONOSS wheel spacers are made of forged 6061-T6 or 7075-T6 aluminum alloy, which is lighter and stronger than ordinary steel. They are also tested and certified by SGS, TUV and ISO standards, ensuring their quality and safety. They have different sizes, thicknesses and bolt patterns to suit any model.
One of the distinctive features of BONOSS LR4 wheel spacers is their active cooling technique. This technique involves creating grooves on the surface of the wheel spacers that allow air to flow through them and dissipate heat. This lowers the temperature of the wheel spacers and the wheels, improving their performance and durability. The active cooling technique also helps to prevent dust and water from accumulating on the wheel spacers, keeping them clean and dry. BONOSS wheel spacers are the only ones in the market that have this innovative technique, which gives them an advantage over other brands.
BONOSS hub-centric LR4 wheel spacers can perfectly fit your car. For every model, the PCD, CB and hub pattern have been accurately measured and recorded by technicians. All products are CNC-machined according to these measurements. And the CNC production is capable to maintain the machine tolerance under 0.02mm. When you put the spacers onto the hub, the hub and spacer will touch snugly and tightly, as there is no space between them.
