15mm wheel spacers are very useful in solving tire rubbing issues. People often want an aggressive sporty look with bigger wheels and tires. But nobody wants the tires rubbing when turning. By pushing the wheels outwards, wheel spacers create more clearance between the wheels and hub assembly. This is effective to avoid the rims and tires hitting the inner fender well. In addition, this is helpful to clear big brake calipers issues.
With 15mm wheel spacers for rims, you don’t have to spend a large budget on new offset wheels. When it comes to choosing the safest 15mm wheel spacers, make sure they are vehicle-specific. A vehicle-specific 15mm spacer is designed to fit your vehicle and only your vehicle. Manufacturers make adjustments to the spacer according to the actual characteristics of the vehicle hub assembly. This ensures perfect fitment.
Are Precise 15mm Wheel Spacers Any Good?
We are always told to purchase high-quality 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 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 with other parts, you absolutely need tight-tolerance ones.
High-precision 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 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.
Will Quality 15mm Wheel Spacers Rust?
After installing, your 15mm wheel spacers properly sit between the hub assembly and wheels, hence they become the important parts that connect the wheels and hub assembly. As we all know, corrosion accelerates the wear and tear of the wheel spacer. Therefore, opting for wheel spacers with great corrosion resistance is a way to add insurance to safety. There are a lot of methods that make the 15mm wheel spacers better in corrosion resistance, such as using rustproof material, proper coating, and more.
Compared to steel, aluminum alloy is better in rustproof. It forms a layer of oxide which renders it non-reactive with elements that are corrosive to the underlying metal. A proper anodizing greatly enhances the anti-rust ability of your 15mm wheel spacers. This process provides the surface with better abrasion resistance, flame resistance, and smoother and harder finish protection than regular anodizing plating. No cheap spacers will use a quality coating. Most of them are galvanized. The galvanized is a low-cost option for many manufacturers. It is useful. However, the rust resistance is far inferior to anodizing. Your car deserves better 15mm wheel spacers.
