Trimming off studs for Subaru BRZ wheel spacers will not mess up the car if you calculate the length to cut before operation. Many people are misinformed when it comes to the issue of trimming off studs. When mounting bolt-on wheel spacers onto the stock mounting hub, if the stock studs are too long to fit the wheel pockets, you have to shorten them. But how much to cut remains in question and we’ll break it down in this post. Let’s dive in.
How much do you trim off studs for Subaru BRZ wheel spacers?
To begin with, the fundamental formula is the length of studs＜the thickness of wheel spacers + the depth of wheel pockets. Calculate the length of stock studs, the thickness of wheel spacers (which you are informed of when purchasing), and the pocket depth in the tire’s center circle. For instance, if the length of the studs is 35mm, the thickness of the wheel spaces is 15mm, and the depth of the wheel pockets is 15mm, you can cut off 6mm or 7mm. Do not cut too much if you may dismantle the wheel pacers in the future, requiring sufficient thread engagement to fasten.
Are BONOSS Subaru BRZ wheel spacers good?
BONOSS Subaru BRZ wheel spacers have been verified by SGS and TUV and are forged aluminum alloy made from aerospace grade 6061-T6 or 7075-T6 hence feature desirable properties such as wear resistance, impact resistance, and high-temperature resistance, to ensure high material strength. In addition, BONOSS insists on independent measuring and mapping to provide extremely precise wheel spacers, particularly in the central hub to gain a perfect fitment. You will never worry about the vibration issue for BONOSS Subaru BRZ wheel spacers.
