Have you made up your mind to buy wheel spacers but can’t decide which thickness of wheel spacers is the most suitable? Are you worried about the effect of OEM wheels on the installation of wheel spacers? Are you worried about rubbing the wheel spacers with the liner and brake kit after installing them? The BLM series wheel spacers offered by BONOSS are able to provide the perfect solution, offering the most suitable wheel spacers to every customer.
What is the Minimum mm Can I Go with Wheel Spacers?
A member in the forum once measured the length of the studs exposed after the OEM wheels were installed as 16mm, in fact, this is also related to the thickness of the wheel spacers, after the hub-centric bolt-on wheel spacers are installed, the thickness of the studs minus the wheel spacers is equal to the exposed length of the studs, and because the installed wheel spacers type is a bolt-on, these protruding studs need to be hidden in the wheel pocket, too long studs may lead to OEM wheel can not be installed, but we do not want to cut the vehicle’s studs, so need to know the minimum thickness of the wheel spacers and no adjustments need to be made to the studs.
BONOSS provides hub-centric bolt-on wheel spacers with a minimum thickness of 15mm, after the measurement of the exposed length of the studs after installing the OEM hubs is 16mm, so after installing the wheel spacers, the length of the exposed studs is 1mm, and the wheel pocket can fully accommodate this 1mm length.
Perhaps more perfect wheel spacers are needed. 15mm wheel spacers ensure that studs do not make adjustments, 20mm wheel spacers bring about the normal shape of the wheels and fender (the wheels remain hidden under the fender), and 25mm-27mm wheel spacers present the wheels flush with the fender, with bigger thicknesses pushing the wheels to the outside of the fender.
Can Wheel Spacers Cause Rubbing？
Don’t worry about installing 25mm wheel spacers causing rubbing between the wheel and liner or springs. BONOSS recommends using 25mm hub-centric wheel spacers because they won’t cause rubbing when the wheel is flush with the fender, and when the wheel spacers are 30mm thick they may cause slight rubbing, a conservative wheel spacer figure will help your driving safety.
How to Choose Wheel Spacers for Type R FK 8?
When choosing wheel spacers, please choose bolt-on wheel spacers and pay attention to whether it has a hub-centric design, based on conservative data support, 25mm wheel spacers will be your best choice. The 7075-T6 hub-centric wheel spacers are recommended by BONOSS. Purchasing higher-performance wheel spacers will completely eliminate your worries about the quality of the wheel spacers, the Ultimate Tensile Strength of the 7075-T6 aluminum alloy reaches 74,000-78,000 psi (510-572 MPa), a value that means wheel spacers can withstand 510-572 MPa of external damage, of course, this external force in the wheel structure unless it is more serious frontal impact accident, otherwise it will not affect the wheel spacers year-round use.
The PCD data of Honda Civic Type R is 5×120, CB is 64.1, choose 6061-T6 and 7075-T6 wheel spacers are reliable, if you have any questions, welcome to contact our customer service staff.
