Stunning! When I pimped my Porsche Macan with 1/2 inch wheel spacer

You know what they say: once you go Porsche, you never go back. Well, I’ve been a proud owner of a Porsche Macan for a few years now, and I can tell you that it’s true. This car is a beast on the road, and a beauty to look at. But you know me, I’m always looking for ways to make it even better. That’s why I decided to slap some 1/2 inch wheel spacers on it. What are wheel spacers, you ask? Well, let me tell you.

What are wheel spacers and why do you need them?

Wheel spacers are these nifty little gadgets that go between your wheel and your hub, making the gap between them bigger. Why would you want to do that? Well, for two reasons: to make your car look cooler, and to make it handle better.

First of all, let’s talk about the looks. Wheel spacers push your wheels outwards, making them stick out more from the wheel wells. This gives your car a more aggressive and sporty stance, like it’s ready to pounce on the road. It also fills up the space between the tire and the fender, making it look more flush and sleek. Plus, it lets you use different wheels that may not fit otherwise, because they have a different offset. Offset is how far the center of the wheel is from the hub. If it’s too high, the wheel will be too close to the car, and it may rub against stuff. If it’s too low, the wheel will be too far from the car, and it may stick out too much. Wheel spacers can fix that by moving the wheel closer or further from the hub.

Second of all, let’s talk about the handling. Wheel spacers widen your track width, which is how far apart your wheels are from each other. This makes your car more stable and grippy, especially when you’re taking corners. It reduces body roll and understeer, making your car more responsive and agile.

Wheel spacers also make your car more balanced, because they reduce the unsprung weight. That’s the weight of the stuff that’s not supported by the suspension, like your wheels and brakes. The less unsprung weight you have, the better your suspension can do its job of keeping your tires on the road and smoothing out bumps.

How do you install wheel spacers for Porsche Macan?

Installing wheel spacers is pretty easy and straightforward, as long as you have some basic tools and skills. You’ll need a jack, jack stands, a lug wrench, a torque wrench, and some anti-seize stuff. You’ll also need to make sure you have the right wheel spacers for your car model and year, as well as longer wheel studs or lug bolts if needed.

Here’s how you do it:

  1. Park your car on a flat surface and put on the parking brake.
  2. Loosen up the wheel studs on one wheel, but don’t take them off yet.
  3. Jack up that corner of the car and put a jack stand under it for safety.
  4. Take off the wheel studs and remove the wheel.
  5. Clean any dirt or rust from the hub and wheel surfaces with a wire brush or sandpaper.
  6. Put some anti-seize stuff on to prevent them from getting stuck or corroded.
  7. Line up the holes of the wheel spacer with those of the hub and slide it on.
  8. Use extended wheel studs, replace them with your stock ones. Put your wheel back on and hand-tighten the extended wheel studs. Make sure they’re all the way in and flat with the spacer.
  9. Lower your car from the jack stand and take off the jack.
  10. Use a torque wrench to tighten the extended wheel studs to the right amount for your car model and year.
  11. Do the same thing for the other three wheels.
