Project Description


Handling performance upgrade! Yesterday, this Audi A3 8Y installed BONOSS Forged Lightweight Plus Wheel Spacers, front 12mm(0.5 inches), PCD 5×112, CB 57.1 together with BONOSS Forged Grade 12.9 Extended Wheel Bolts. Wheel spacers create an additional clearance between your wheel and the vehicle hub. An ideal distance between your car’s wheels quite actually makes it more stable. They also increase the traction during cornering and can allow you to add larger wheels. You can also add larger brake kits, which is a great safety upgrade especially if you plan to take your widebody car onto a track. Installing wheel spacers is one of the easiest and most cost-effective options to get flush the fender flares.  (Thanks IGNITION PERFORMANCE for providing these pics)

The Audi A3 8Y Sportback is one of the most popular top-rated 5-door sedans in the world, complete with a compact design, high-quality interior, comfortable seats, and a modern cabin. The A3 8Y is powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, delivering 148bhp at 4200rpm, 265 lb-ft torque at 2750rpm, a seven-speed automatic transmission, offering smooth, sharp switch and it is all-wheel drive. The best bit with this 8Y is the driving experience, and Audi was always not to disappoint here. The steering is precise and direct, body control is excellent and the handling is anything but enjoyable.


BONOSS Lightweight Plus Design for Wheel Spacers

We can always hear that reducing unsprung weight is better. Theoretically, reducing unsprung weight helps a car’s suspension system work more effectively. It can also provide sharp and enjoyable steering, enhancing wheel structure performance. The “Lightweight Plus” of BONOSS Forged Lightweight Plus Wheel Spacers means the further optimized hollow design for lightweight, based on the traditional wheel spacers. It is a proven design that is effectively reducing weight, reducing energy consumption, improving control performance, and achieving a balance between high performance and environmental protection.

What Do Extended Wheel Bolts Do?

Any time you run wheel spacers, extended wheel bolts are a must option for properly fastening the wheel to the vehicle hub. Extended wheel bolts (also called longer wheel bolts, extended lug bolts) are designed with longer thread lengths to allow full thread penetration with wheel spacers or wider aftermarket rims of a different offset. Any time you run wheel spacers, extended wheel bolts are a must option for properly fastening the wheel to the vehicle hub. Without the proper thread length, the stock lug bolts will not allow penetrating the vehicle hub threads completely which can cause car shaking or safety risk.


Additional Information:

  • BONOSS wheel spacer thickness can be customized flexibly, which is compatible with most vehicles. Thus, if you would like different sizes of wheel spacers, feel free to contact us. This Audi A3 8Y uses front 12mm(0.5 inches), PCD 5×112, CB 57.1.
  • The extended bolts are spacer structure design, which effectively eliminates the bolts loosening and abnormal sound caused by the PCD hole coaxially deviation between hub and shaft head. This Audi A3 8Y uses ball seat bolts. If you would like a set of extended bolts, please ensure the seat type of the bolts is suitable for threading tightly. And, if you don’t know the proper length, you are welcomed to contact our tech staff freely.
  • Each BONOSS product is printed with the logo of “BONOSS”. This offers an easy method to distinguish other fake and inferior products. At the same time, it also provides a way to find our after-sales service. Our products are 10 Years Limited Warranty (new products with 12 months warranty), which is an excellent and cost-effective choice for your car upgrades.
