BONOSS-forged-lightweight-plus-wheel-spacers-for-Audi

Handling upgrade! Last Wednesday, this Audi A3 8Y installed BONOSS Forged Lightweight Plus Wheel Spacers, rear 15mm(0.6 inches), PCD 5×112, CB 57.1 together with BONOSS Forged Grade 12.9 Extended Wheel Bolts. What do wheel spacers do? Wheel spacers are used for a couple of reasons. When wheels do not have enough offset. The wheel spacers would compensate for proper offset by pushing the wheels away from the vehicle hub. Having your wheel brought out the desired distance allows for mounting larger brake calipers without wheel scratching. These spacers and bolts are specifically engineered to give your car better cornering, aerodynamics, and look. (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.

Are wheel spacers bad for Audi A3 8Y?

Totally not. Wheel spacers are a kind of wheel accessories which are used to create necessary distance on the inner portion of the wheel for clearance problem with brakes, tie rods and other suspension components. That means they allow for installing bigger wheels and tires as well as larger brake calipers without breaking the fender. When your wheels do not have enough offset. A wheel spacer will compensate for proper offset by pushing the wheel farther away from the vehicle hub. Besides, hub-centric wheel spacers can transform a lug-centric wheel (one that centers by fastening the wheel lugs rather than a hub-specific mounting surface) into a hub-centric wheel.

Are extended wheel bolts safe?

Exactly safe. 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 to properly secure 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. BONOSS Forged Grade 12.9 Extended Wheel Bolts are all thoroughly tested and certified by SGS, TUV authoritative institutions, truly guarantee safety.

  • 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.
