The 2022 BMW i4 wheel spacers are small things but make a big difference. Spacing out the wheels by 5mm, 10mm, or 20 mm would really enhance the appearance and handling. By filling the arch-gap, these 2022 BMW i4 wheel spacers easily create a sportier, attractive look. As they widen the vehicle’s track width, you get more gripping power when cornering, hence they improve handling. Generally, most wheels are produced to fit great without spacers. Though, on some vehicles and wheels, 2022 BMW i4 wheel spacers are needed to achieve the correct fitment. If you’re trying to achieve something specific, wheel spacers will do the job for you. Since wheel spacers are a safety-critical component, we would always recommend you go with the best and most suitable ones.
Types of 2022 BMW i4 Wheel Spacers
According to the size, there are different types of 2022 BMW i4 wheel spacers to ensure that the spacers are fitted safely and securely to the vehicle. Slip-on 2022 BMW i4 wheel spacers tend to be thinner which are around 3mm to 20mm. They are primarily made for vehicles that use wheel bolts rather than lug nuts. This kind of spacer simply fits between the vehicle’s hub and wheels. But they require a set of new longer wheel bolts that will keep the spacers and wheels safely attached to the vehicle’s hub. The length of the new wheel bolts needs to be the amount of the original equipment bolt’s length plus the wheel spacer’s thickness. This ensures a full and safe thread engagement.
It is important to make sure the extended wheel bolts are made to the correct specification. Before purchasing a set, check the wheel first. For original equipment wheels, it is simple. For aftermarket wheels, it is a bit complicated. Some aftermarket wheels require wheel bolts with different seat types. Keep the seat type correct, the bolts and wheels will perfectly fit. You may also need to measure the thickness of the wheel lug holes. Because some aftermarket wheels’ lug holes are made to be thicker than the OEM ones, to some extent, this will reduce the thread length of the bolts. In this case, you need to plus extra thickness to the bolts.
Another type is Bolt-on 2022 BMW i4 wheel spacers. They are available in large sizes from 25mm up to 70mm. These spacers are fastened on the vehicle hub with special shallow-head wheel bolts. In most cases, you can remount the wheels on the spacers with original equipment wheel bolts. In this way, you don’t need any extended wheel bolts. These kinds of spacers are considered to be safer than the slip-on ones because they can achieve a complete thread engagement easily.
Most wheel adapters are also bolt-on wheel spacers. They come with two different bolt patterns. The hub side is machined to suit the OEM vehicle hub, and the other side is built to the wheel specification. Through the conversion function, they allow you to change the bolt pattern to fit different wheels easily and safely. For instance, the right 2022 BMW i4 wheel adapters can change the bolt pattern from 5×112 to 5×120 pattern.
