For most OEM setups, Tesla Model X 15mm wheel spacers won’t cause any fender issues. If you want the wheels to sit flush with the fenders, with no rubbing issues, you should choose wheel spacers with proper thickness and offset. Assuming the wheel gap is about 15mm, then 15mm spacers are perfect for a flush stance. Most bigger wheels or brake calipers will need Tesla Model X 15mm wheel spacers to clear rubbing issues. Countless successful cases show that as long as you operate properly, they are exactly safe.
Mostly, stud Tesla Model X 15mm wheel spacers are considered to be safer. They are bolted to the vehicle studs with the provided lug nuts. Then the wheels are attached to the new wheel studs with the OEM lug nuts. This ensures each lug nut has a safe thread engagement. Two sets of wheel studs create a strong wheel connection that is firm enough to support the weight of the vehicle. You don’t need to replace the studs. Proper torquing these Tesla Model X 15mm wheel spacers, there will be no sort of vibration.
Are Tesla Model X 15mm Wheel Spacers the Same as Offset Wheels?
Actually, these Tesla Model X 15mm wheel spacers provide the same effect as some lower-offset aftermarket wheels. Assuming your stock wheel has a +35 offset, and then put a 15mm spacer on the wheel, that will push the tire out about the same as someone just using a negative offset wheel with a +20 offset (35 – 15 = 20). Wheel spacers will make the offset even lower and push the wheel even further outside the fender. If your wheels have high offsets, to avoid rubbing issues, it is better to use Tesla Model X 15mm wheel spacers to fix it.
As long as they are high-quality Tesla Model X 15mm wheel spacers, there is no significant downside. Apart from the base function of wheel spacers, BONOSS wheel spacers provide additional advantages for your SUV. For example, the active cooling technique, the side knurling design, ISO grade 12.9 wheel studs and ISO grade 10 wheel nuts, and more. At the same price as other Tesla Model X 15mm wheel spacers, BONOSS ones provide more advantages. If you cannot afford a set of low-offset wheels, then BONOSS wheel spacers will be a better option.
Are Precise Tesla Model X 15mm Wheel Spacers Any Good?
We are always told to purchase high-quality Tesla Model X 15mm wheel spacers. Precision is actually important in manufacturing wheel spacers. In short words, the higher the precision, the better the performance. The amount of tolerance reflects the precision. BONOSS Tesla Model X 15mm wheel spacers are CNC machined, precision at 0.02mm tolerance. This improves the fit and functionality of spacers. Since spacers are components that contact other parts, you absolutely need tight-tolerance ones.
High-precision Tesla Model X 15mm wheel spacers also look better. For instance, a wheel spacer with a high-quality surface is easier to sit flush up against the vehicle hub and wheel. So, there’s no obvious gap between them. This is helpful to avoid high-speed wheel vibration. Many cheap Tesla Model X 15mm wheel spacers are roughly machined. Never use such spacers. You should be aware that if tight tolerance is not done correctly, your wheel spacers will underperform or possibly fail, resulting in unexpected problems.
