There are 3mm to 50mm tire spacers for a Porsche 911. Several factors are useful to determine what Porsche 911 wheel spacers sizes are the best. The first thing to consider is your wheel gap. For an OEM wheel setup, 7mm-15mm is the best size for Porsche 911. The second factor is the bolt pattern. The bolt pattern of a Porsche 911 is 5x130mm. So, you would need 5×130 wheel spacers to fit. Mostly, vehicle-specific Porsche 911 tire spacers are far safer and better than those universal types.
As long as you keep the wheels still covered by the fender flares (tires don’t rub the fenders when turning), there will be no problems. By moving the wheels and tires further out from the suspension, wheel spacers help prevent bigger tires from hitting the fenders or any other suspension parts. Besides they increase the track width. A wider track enables your tires to grip the road surface better, and the rollover resistance is enhanced. The wider track improves the performance in the curve.
What Types of Porsche 911 Tire Spacers Do I Need?
For most Porsche cars that use wheel bolts to secure the wheels, slip-on tire spacers will be better. Slip-on spacers simply slide over your existing wheel hubs, secured by a set of new longer bolts. Due to such structure, they are made thinner. If you need Porsche 911 wheel spacers, slip-on types will do. They are primarily made for vehicles that use wheel bolts rather than lug nuts. So, the installation process is the same as installing the wheels.
What’s better, BONOSS forged lightweight plus Porsche 911 wheel spacers machined with “Hollow Carved” holes. This design provides obviously lightweight effect while maintaining high strength. Lighter 5×130 wheel spacers will operate well at a higher performance in most conditions. That is why most customers choose BONOSS forged aluminum lightweight plus Porsche 911 wheel spacers for performance upgrades.
Do Porsche 911 Tire Spacers Need Longer Bolts?
Yes, longer wheel bolts are a must option for adding Porsche 911 tire spacers safely. Tire engineers explain that only if the bolt thread is long enough can the bolts provide proper clamping force to keep these spacers and wheels balanced. It is highly recommended to ensure a minimum of 6 – 8 complete threads of engagement for the lug nuts. For an M14 wheel bolt, you would need at least 14mm threads to ensure a safe engagement. Longer bolts are included with the purchase of BONOSS forged lightweight plus Porsche 911 spacers set.
BONOSS provides ISO grade 12.9 wheel bolts to ensure quality exceeds OEM standards. High-strength wheel bolts and nuts ensure a strong wheel-spacer-hub connection. BONOSS forged extended wheel bolts are made of high-strength forged SCM440 alloy steel. They have achieved ISO standard grade 12.9, tensile strength≥ 1,282 MPa, limited life range test ≥ 2,000,000 stress cycles without damage, ultimate tensile load≥152,000 N, hardness (HV) ≥ 395, NSS ≥ 500H. With such high-strength wheel bolts, your Porsche 911 tire spacers will be safe without breaking.
