The BMW i4 wheel spacers provide many benefits to your vehicle. For many car fanatics who would like to show off their car, having it painted, adding decals, or improving the ride and sound of it are a few ways to do so. You can also upgrade the wheels and brakes, for example, changing the size, style, and color of the wheels or add performance brake kits. Installing BMW wheel spacers will help add a unique look to your ride, provide a better ability to roll over obstacles, and allow you to safely install larger and wider tires or would make space to fit on your big brake kit. Properly pushing out your wheels from the vehicle hub will also make your BMW i4 stand out and improve the ride and performance. (Above picture from bmwusa.com)
Benefits of BMW i4 Spacers
Improve car handling. The i4 spacers will increase the distance of left wheels and right wheels, hence increase the traction, this will help improve the car’s ability to turn. They add more space for the wheels to maneuver, causing the tires to be further apart from each other, distributing the weight equally between all four wheels.
Enhance the car’s look. Pushing out the wheels to a certain distance will change the way your car looks. By adding just a small amount of extra space between the rim and the wheel hub (popular thicknesses are 5mm spacer 5×112, 10mm spacers, 15mm spacers…), the wheels will stick out to flush the fenders. This design is meant to give your car a sportier and fiercer look.
Add larger wheels and tires. Installing larger wheels improves handling, speed, and control. But the majority of custom wheels won’t fit on standard cars. In this case, adding wheel spacers will help make sure you can install the wheels and tires you want on your BMW i4 without rubbing against the frame, axle, or other suspension components.
Add bigger brakes. Upgrading your BMW i4 to big brake kits will provide a significant performance increase. Higher-performance brake kits are often bigger than the stock parts. A wheel spacer makes required room for a larger caliper that wouldn’t fit in the factory wheel space.
Types of Wheel Spacers for BMW i4
Bolt-on wheel spacers are fastened to the existing studs and bolt the spacer onto the hub with the provided lug nuts. The wheel is then secured to the studs of the wheel spacer using the stock lug nuts. American and Asian cars typically use lug nuts to secure the wheels. Under this circumstance, your easiest solution is to go with bolt-on style wheel spacers that come with their own lug studs and nuts. When purchasing these, you’ll need to check and make sure they are compatible with your wheels and lug nut patterns.
Slip-on wheel spacers are bolted to the vehicle hub and fastened by extended wheel bolts. European cars usually use wheel lug bolts to secure the wheels to the hubs. In this case, slip-on style wheel spacers will be your most suitable choice. To ensure a proper installation, you will also need to use new extended wheel bolts which are longer than the stock ones by the thickness of the wheel spacers. When purchasing these, check and make sure they are compatible with your wheels and bolt patterns.
