BONOSS forged lightweight plus wheel spacers what do wheel spacers do

Wider track for a better corner! Wheel spacers bring your rims and tires outwards so that they can flush with the fender flares, giving your vehicle an excellent stance. Many car manufacturers will leave a certain amount of fender space for tire chains. And most track racing cars would make use of every millimeter of the wheel-wells space available in their design for the highest performance and the best exteriors. A wider wheel track means better traction, hence increasing body control experience. With spacers, you can fill the gap in your fenders and get a more aggressive and powerful look!

Correcting Positive Wheel Offset

Many car owners would like to install some nice aftermarket wheels which set up with a positive offset. You should be aware that an excessive positive offset will cause the inner edge of your rims and tires to rub against the suspension components. It can also negatively affect your car’s handling, making it potentially dangerous to drive. But these wheels do look awesome and perform well. In this case, wheel spacers can be the most cost-effective solution. Wheel spacers can create the desired clearance to correct the positive offset by pushing the wheels out from the vehicle hub. Through this way, you can mount wheels that are not made for your car.

Larger brake calipers with more pistons will offer greater stopping power and shorter stopping distances than the OEM ones. It is an instantly effective upgrade for many car owners. However, bigger calipers will take up some room of the wheel installation area, so that the wheels cannot be mounted back with a proper engagement, leading to high-speed vibration and a potential disaster. If you have upgraded your brake system with bigger brake calipers and still want to keep the current wheels attached to your vehicle without scratching, wheel spacers can also be your most cost-effective solution.

Flushing Widebody Fender Flares

Widebody builds take your car to a low and wide stance, giving it the exterior of a beast mid-pounce. When you add fender flares to make the sleek look of a wide body, the current wheels seem to stuck in the wheel arches. This is not aesthetics for widebody builds. Wheel spacers are sandwiched between the wheel and vehicle hub to push the wheel outwards to flush the fender flares, providing an excellent exterior and better aerodynamic. Besides, an ideal distance between your car’s wheels quite actually makes it more stable. They also increase the traction during cornering and can allow you to install larger wheels.

Hub Centric Wheel Spacers

There are a lot of options you’ll find with wheel spacers, but they are mainly classified as hub-centric spacers and lug-centric spacers. We recommend hub-centric spacers rather than lug-centric spacers. Most of the disadvantages that people associate with wheel spacers are actually blamed to lug centric spacers. Due to non-hub centric design, there is a certain gap between the axle and the hub, which means that the wheel is centered by the lug studs rather than by the vehicle hub. Without the firm contact, lacking the hub’s support, the studs play the role of bearing the road impacts. For some fierce impacts are strong enough to deform the studs, making the wheel no longer concentric with the hub, resulting in vibrations. Even worse, it may damage the wheel’s center bore.

BONOSS hub centric wheel spacers

In contrast, hub-centric spacers offer a better system of support and stability. They are designed to make a snug connection between wheel and vehicle hub, ensuring the hub carries the weight of the car instead of the studs or bolts. This allows the wheels are truly central to the vehicle hub, meaning no high-speed vibrations through the wheels. Also, they can transform a lug-centric wheel into a hub-centric one. Meanwhile, hub centric wheel spacers also reduce the stress on the wheel studs or bolts, improving service life range. After choosing the right spacers, you will still need to make sure to tighten everything in the right place. Anytime you change the stance of your wheels, you should get your wheel alignment checked before taking off down the road.
