One of the most frequently asked questions is: “what wheel spacers fit my car?” Well, there are a couple of critical factors to consider when answering this question. Mostly, three elements help you narrow down the selection. They are bolt pattern, thickness, and thread pitch. A vehicle’s bolt pattern consists of two figures: the number of wheel lugs and the centerline measurement of those wheel lugs.
Giving an example, if your vehicle hub is 5 lugs and the diameter of the centerline of the wheel lugs is 114.3mm, then the vehicle bolt pattern is 5×114.3mm. High-end wheel spacers are built specifically for the make and model of your vehicle. Therefore, you would need 5×114.3 wheel spacers. If you intend to use hub-centric spacers, you will have to consider the diameter of the center bore.
How Thick Wheel Spacers Do I Need?
Perfect-size wheel spacers not only make your car look Incredibly nice but also keep you safe on the road. When figuring out what size wheel spacers are perfect, you need to consider the wheel backspacing and offset, most importantly the fender gap. Simply put, wheel spacers reduce the backspacing and offset. The less the backspacing and offset, the further the wheel will sit out from the suspension.
Generally, in order to achieve a more aggressive and muscular stance, people choose to go with a lower offset. The thicker wheel spacers you use, the lower the wheel offset is. If you can measure the fender gap, you can find the best wheel spacer size. For instance, if the fender gap is 25mm, then 25mm wheel spacers are perfect to get your wheels flushed with the fenders. You can go a little thicker, but don’t protrude out the fenders.
Do Thread Pitches of Wheel Spacers Matter?
Thread pitch plays a significant role in wheel spacers fitment. However, people often overlook it, after all, an M14 stud looks no different from an M12 stud. Figuring out the correct thread pitch of your vehicle ensures a perfect fitment and saves you much time. The correct thread pitch can be found in your owner’s manual. If the thread of your wheel stud is M12x1.5, then you will need corresponding M12x1.5 wheel studs and nuts to fit.
