What do Tesla Model 2 wheel spacers do? If you have ever upgraded your car, you may have heard of wheel spacers. They are wheel accessories that are installed between the brake rotors and wheels. The main purpose of installing spacers is to reduce the wheel ET/offset for wheel fitment. They also widen your vehicle’s track, adding more stability and improving handling even when the tire size does not change. They can be as thin as 3mm or as thick as 70mm, which allows you to push the wheels out just as much as you want to. Using wheel spacers (or wheel adapters) has now become a common practice among many owners of Tesla vehicles. As long as you use reputable Tesla Model 2 spacers and correctly installed them, not only are they safe, but they can end up making your vehicle safer than the stock setup too.
Will Tesla Model 2 Wheel Spacers Improve Handling?
Yes, the wheel spacers bring many benefits to your Tesla Model 2. Aesthetically, spacing out your wheels to a certain distance will change the way your vehicle looks. By adding the proper amount of extra space between the rim and the hub assembly, the wheels will stick out to flush the fenders, giving your vehicle a more sporty and fiercer look. This also increases the track width, hence reduce body roll and enhance your tires’ lateral grip. The tires are more evenly loaded, which leads to better handling and faster acceleration coming out of a corner. All of these advantages come without changing the wheel and tire size. The most ingenious thing about Tesla Model 2 spacers is that they allow you to safely fit wider tires on your existing rims or upgrade to bigger wheels without rubbing against the frame, axle, or other suspension components. This, of course, improves traction and handling even more.
Since aftermarket performance brake kits are often bigger than the stock parts. If you would like to upgrade to larger brakes, there’s a pretty high chance that you will need to use Tesla Model 2 wheel spacers. They will make the required room for a larger caliper that wouldn’t fit in the factory wheel space. This will provide a significant driving experience increase. Furthermore, they can push your wheels and tires outwards to the position where get flush the fenders. This is effective to help complete the widebody look of your vehicle without splashed more money on some deep-dish rims.
Are Tesla Model 2 Wheel Spacers Safe to Use?
Yes. Since the weight of a vehicle is not sustained by its wheel studs/bolts, the use of wheel spacers is considered to be safe. The vehicle’s wheels are actually fastened to the corresponding wheel hub by a clamping force achieved by tightening the lug nuts/bolts of each wheel. This allows all forces to be transmitted through each vehicle’s hub and its corresponding axle. Simply speaking, the wheel spacers simply serve as an extension of the original wheel hub surface. Therefore, the weight of the vehicle will not be placed on any wheel spacers that are installed. Drive with 10+ wheel spacers manufacturing experience, having witnessed countless successful cases on Tesla Model 3/Model Y/Model S, we have the confidence to say that as long as the spacers you buy are reputable and made of top quality material, wheel spacers will not cause any problems when installed correctly with care and patience. BONOSS forged Tesla Model 2 wheel spacers are safer and stronger than those casting alternatives: Tensile Strength≥310Mpa (AL6061-T6), Tensile Strength≥572Mpa (AL7075-T6), Yield Strength≥275Mpa (AL6061-T6), Yield Strength≥503Mpa (AL7075-T6), and the Tensile Strength of the cheap alternatives is approximately 125Mpa below. When facing bump and impact loads, higher tensile strength can bear greater forces without breaking.
