In the market, there are 1-inch to 2-inch Chevy Silverado rim spacers for the stock 17 inches to 22 inches wheels. For a tough and reliable 4×4 built, proper size wheel spacers are one of the most useful wheel accessories. Generally, spacer size and design directly affects the performance of your truck. Therefore, it requires some basic measurement. Take a straight edge and place it against the outermost part of the rims/tires, then measure from the outside wheel to the fender line.

If the value is about 1.5 inches, then 1.5-inch Silverado wheel spacers provide a perfect flush stance. A great first step is knowing the bolt pattern and the intended purpose of your ideal build. The bolt pattern determines whether the spacers fit your vehicle. The bolt pattern of a Chevy Silverado is 6×5.5″ or 6×139.7mm. Most brand Chevy truck wheel spacers are vehicle-specific. They allow the wheel spacers to sit centered on the wheel hub, providing a more stable wheel connection.

Are Chevy Silverado Rim Spacers Good or Bad?

Installing Chevy Silverado rim spacers is a good idea to improve handling and stability. By pushing the stock rims outwards, they provide more space for wider tires and bigger brake calipers. Aside from the above functions, BONOSS forged active cooling Chevy Silverado wheel spacers provide more additional advantages. For example, the active cooling technique. Distributed in petal shape, the cooling grooves allow the external cold air to flow continuously inside the wheel spacer when it rotates.

The flowing air takes away the heat, so it achieves the purpose of actively dissipating heat for the braking system. This boosts the heat dissipation efficiency of the rotors, reducing brake thermal decay, hence improving road safety. Besides, BONOSS forged active cooling rim spacers are CNC machined, precision at 0.02mm tolerance. This improves the fit and functionality of spacers. So, there’s no obvious gap between the wheel hub and the spacer. This is helpful to avoid high-speed wheel vibration.

Should You Use Loctite on Chevy Silverado Rim Spacers?

Actually, it is optional to use Loctite on Chevy Silverado wheel spacers. As long as you use quality wheel lugs and properly torque them, they will never come loose. Particularly, BONOSS forged active cooling rim spacers come with ISO grade 12.9 wheel studs and ISO grade 10 wheel nuts. This hardware is meticulously coated with Dacromet. It provides four-way corrosion protection strong enough to deliver superior, long-term resistance to the elements for fasteners.

Such BONOSS forged wheel studs and lug nuts give neutral salt spray resistances exceeding 500 hours. Most importantly, Dacromet coating does not induce Hydrogen Embrittlement. It is an excellent surface treatment of connection elements and safety components in automotive components and accessories. These BONOSS forged active cooling Chevy Silverado wheel spacers are suitable for heavy-duty applications thanks to a high corrosion resistance.
