Most of the common 2023 Mazda CX5 wheel spacers on the market are of bolt-on construction. They are held in place with wheel studs and lug nuts. Extra lug nuts hold the wheel spacers to the hub assembly. The wheels go through the wheel studs on the wheel spacers and are finally fixed with the stock lug nuts. Both the wheel studs on the wheel spacers and the stock wheel studs need sufficient length to engage the lug nuts. Do you need longer wheel studs for the 2023 Mazda CX5 wheel spacers?
Does the Wheel Studs Matter with 2023 Mazda CX5 Wheel Spacers?
The 2023 Mazda CX5 wheel spacers need to be fastened to the hub assembly with the help of the threaded engagements of the lug nuts and wheel studs. You do not need to replace the longer wheel studs to fit the bolt-on 2023 Mazda CX5 wheel spacers because the lug nuts are M12x1.5 and need to be tightened 6.5 turns according to the BONOSS recommended standard, and the wheel studs need to be 10mm long. The tightened lug nuts can produce sufficient clamping force to hold the wheel spacers, and the length of the stock wheel studs is often longer than 10mm, so you do not need longer wheel studs.
What if your thread size is not M12x1.5? How long do you need wheel studs for M14x1.5 threads? BONOSS will provide you with details of the mounting torque of the lug nuts and the thread length they need. Even for lug nuts with M14x1.5 thread, only 12mm of thread length is required. Below is the recommended mounting torquing and thread lengths for lug nuts from BONOSS. It will help you to install the 2023 Mazda CX5 wheel spacers.
(Minimum Number of Turns for Wheel Bolts / Nuts):
M12 x 1.25 = 8.0 turns = approx. 10 mm of load-bearing shaft length
M12 x 1.50 = 6.5 turns = approx. 10 mm of load-bearing shaft length
M12 x 1.75 = 6.5 turns = approx. 12 mm of load-bearing shaft length
M14 x 1.25 = 9.0 turns = approx. 12mm of load-bearing shaft length
M14 x 1.50 = 7.5 turns = approx. 12 mm of load-bearing shaft length
1/2″ UNF = 8.0 turns = approx. 11 mm of load-bearing shaft length
If you purchase BONOSS 2023 Mazda CX5 wheel spacers with aftermarket lug nuts instead of stock lug nuts, it is recommended to tighten more turns to ensure load safety.
When Will You Need Longer Wheel Studs for 2023 Mazda CX5 Wheel Spacers?
In the following cases, longer wheel studs will be necessary. If you purchase the slip-on type 2023 Mazda CX5 wheel spacers, the wheel studs will need to go through the hub assembly, wheel spacers, and wheels. The vehicle manufacturer sets stock wheel studs to go through the wheels, and the extra length added by the wheel spacers will not always allow you to tighten the lug nuts to a safe number of turns.
The BONOSS BLS series will satisfy your desire to use slip-on type 2023 Mazda CX5 wheel spacers with longer wheel studs. Structurally, the wheel studs are safer to thread through all parts, provided they are strong enough to support their use. These wheel studs are made of grade 12.9 SCM440 steel alloy, which has excellent ultimate tensile strength and proof load, and you will need to replace the stock wheel studs to get a longer thread length.
