The basic function of Tesla Model S wheel spacers is to provide extra space between the wheels and hub assembly. This is helpful to avoid tire rubbing when upgrading to aftermarket suspension components. Perfect-size Tesla Model S wheel spacers make a difference in friction reduction and handling enhancement. But things are not immutable. Whether you would like to change the brakes, coilovers, or tires, it seems that you need to remove the spacers.
Your Tesla Model S wheel spacers must be in excellent condition so that your wheels fit on them tightly and don’t loosen. Once they don’t fit perfectly, you may experience shaking or vibration. And if you have poor-quality casting spacers installed, due to wear and tear, they become weak. Whatever it is, you need high-quality Tesla Model S wheel spacers to eliminate any potential risks. At this point, learning about how to replace spacers and how to choose new Tesla Model S wheel spacers will be useful for you.
Are Tesla Model S Wheel Spacers Hard to Remove?
When it comes to brake system replacement, it is necessary to remove the entire wheels and the old Tesla Model S wheel spacers. Removing wheel spacers should not be hard, but a spacer can get stuck due to rust accumulation. In order to make the removal process easier, BONOSS Tesla Model S wheel spacers are designed with disassembly grooves. The disassembly grooves mean the small notches which are distributed on the corner of wheel spacers.
This is so practical because the notch leaves a limited clearance between the brake rotor and the spacer. When removing the spacer, place a screwdriver into the notch and you can simply apply force at an angle to separate the spacer from the brake rotor. Without such disassembly grooves, you may find it difficult to start. If the spacer sticks in place, by force effect, it can be difficult to dismount. Even worse, you will damage the Tesla Model S wheel spacers or axle hub.
Why Forged Aluminum Tesla Model S Wheel Spacers Are Better?
The material of the Tesla Model S wheel spacers is correlated to how well the spacers are in daily use. Forged aluminum alloys are used for applications where you need speed and good performance, such as for racing vehicles. A forged aluminum spacer is good at heat dissipation and resistant to corrosion. When aluminum contacts the air, it forms a layer of oxide which renders it non-reactive with elements that are corrosive to the underlying metal. Proper anodizing greatly enhances the anti-rust ability of your Tesla Model S wheel spacers.
BONOSS Tesla Model S wheel spacers apply an excellent black hard anodizing process. This process provides the surface with better abrasion resistance, flame resistance, and smoother and harder finish protection than regular anodizing plating. The black dye not only brings a premium appearance but also tends to be lightfast. To be lightfast means that the colors will not fade as quickly. It is an ideal hard coating process for forged aluminum Tesla Model S wheel spacers. You don’t need to worry about these spacers getting stuck on the wheel hub.
