Easy but big effective upgrade! Last Sunday, this Audi A6 C7 installed BONOSS Forged Lightweight Plus Wheel Spacers, front 12mm (1/2 inch), rear 15mm (3/5 inch), PCD 5×112, CB 66.5 together with BONOSS Forged Grade 12.9 Extended Wheel Bolts. Wheel spacers come in various thicknesses and dimensions, commonly used to widen the track of the vehicle, leading to more stability and better handling performance, which is why they are often used on many racing cars. They can also make a car look better by pushing the wheel away in a more visually aggressive position. A wheel spacers install is easy work that has a good effect on your driving experience.  (Thanks PERFORMANCE CENTER for providing these pics)

What do wheel spacers do?

Larger brake calipers with more pistons will offer greater stopping power and shorter stopping distances than the OEM ones. It is an instantly effective upgrade for many car owners. However, bigger calipers will take up some room of the wheel installation area, so that the wheels cannot be mounted back with a proper engagement, leading to high-speed vibration and a potential disaster. If you have upgraded your brake system with bigger brake calipers and still want to keep the current wheels attached to your vehicle without scratching, wheel spacers can also be your most cost-effective solution.

How to confirm the thread type and length of extended bolts?

Generally, it’s easy to figure out the correct size of bolt, all you need to do is to measure the length of your stock bolt then add the thickness of the required spacer, and that will be your ideal extended bolt length. In most cases, you need a bolt that is longer by the thickness of the spacer, for example, your stock bolts are 27mm, the desired spacer is 12mm, then the right size of extended bolts would be 39mm. But there can be exceptions. Considering the critical importance of the length of thread fully engaged in the axle hub, it’s always best to measure from the wheel bolt you’re currently using.

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 A6 C7 uses front 12mm (1/2 inch), rear 15mm (3/5 inch), PCD 5×112, CB 66.5.
  • 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 A6 C7 uses M14x1.5 thread 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.
