If you own a Porsche Panamera, you might be wondering how to improve its performance and appearance. One of the most common ways to do that is to upgrade the wheels. However, changing the wheels can be expensive and complicated, as you need to consider the size, offset, bolt pattern, and tire compatibility. Moreover, larger wheels can also affect the ride quality, fuel economy, and handling of your car.

So, is there a simpler and cheaper alternative to larger wheels? Yes, there is: wheel spacers. Wheel spacers are metal discs that fit between the wheel hub and the wheel, pushing the wheel outwards. They can create a more aggressive stance and fill the wheel arches better, giving your Panamera a sportier look. But wheel spacers are not just cosmetic; they can also improve the performance of your car in several ways.

How Porsche Panamera wheel spacers improve performance

Wheel spacers can enhance the performance of your Porsche Panamera by:

  • Increasing stability and cornering: Wheel spacers widen the track width of your car, which lowers its center of gravity and reduces body roll. This improves the stability and cornering ability of your car, especially at high speeds.
  • Reducing understeer and oversteer: Wheel spacers also change the scrub radius of your car, which is the distance between the center of the tire contact patch and the steering axis. A positive scrub radius means that the contact patch is outside the steering axis, which can cause understeer (the tendency of the car to go straight when turning). A negative scrub radius means that the contact patch is inside the steering axis, which can cause oversteer (the tendency of the car to spin out when turning). Wheel spacers can help balance the scrub radius and reduce both understeer and oversteer.
  • Enhancing braking performance: Wheel spacers can also improve the braking performance of your car by increasing the leverage on the brake calipers. This means that less force is required to apply the brakes, resulting in shorter stopping distances and less brake fade.

How to choose Porsche Panamera wheel spacers

Wheel spacers are not one-size-fits-all; you need to choose the right ones for your Porsche Panamera. Here are some factors to consider:

  • Thickness: The thickness of the wheel spacers determines how much they push out the wheels. You need to measure the gap between the wheel and the fender to determine how thick you want your wheel spacers to be. You also need to make sure that there is enough clearance for the suspension components and brake calipers.
  • Hub-centric or lug-centric: Hub-centric wheel spacers are designed to fit snugly on the wheel hub, while lug-centric wheel spacers rely on the lug nuts to center them. Hub-centric wheel spacers are generally preferred, as they eliminate any vibration or wobble that might occur with lug-centric ones.
  • Bolt pattern: The bolt pattern of the wheel spacers must match the bolt pattern of your car and your wheels. The bolt pattern is expressed as a number of bolts followed by a diameter (e.g., 5×130). You can find this information in your owner’s manual or online.
  • Quality: Wheel spacers are subjected to a lot of stress and heat, so you need to choose high-quality ones that are made of durable materials and have proper certification. Cheap or poorly made wheel spacers can crack or break, causing serious damage or injury.

Which Porsche Panamera wheel spacers are best?

I recommend BONOSS hub-centric Porsche Panamera wheel spacers. They are one-piece forged billet aluminum made from aerospace degree 7075-T6 or 6061-T6, tough and hard. And the supplementary wheel studs and nuts are ISO grade 12.9 and ISO grade 10. They are high-quality wheel spacers and bolts verified by TUV and SGS, the two most authoritative bodies worldwide. If add them to your vehicle, you never worry about the spacers or studs bending or breaking.

Except for quality, BONOSS Porsche Panamera wheel spacers protrude from the prior patents, outlook, and price.

With many functional and advanced patents like active cooling structures, lightweight hollows, and knurling sides, BONOSS Porsche Panamera wheel spacers are the most meticulously crafted wheel spacers in the market. The active cooling structures are heat dissipation grooves behind the spacers which can boost the cooling efficiency and reduce brake thermal decay. People familiar with the vehicle braking system will know that the brake system is affected by heat. If the brakes are over-hot after longtime riding, the brake efficiency will be slower and the brake caliper will be hurt. The heat dissipation grooves provide space for cooling especially when the car is running at high speed, the air circulation is rapid.

BONOSS Porsche Panamera wheel spacers are anodized and shimmer black. The knurling sides also make them look pretty. You may guess they must be expensive. No, they are cheaper than many real-quality wheel spacers on the market. The Upgrade of processing technology can save cost and time. They are the most cost-effective wheel spacers you can get.
