Eight reasons you should buy wheel spacers, come and see if your car is suitable for installing wheel spacers.
We all know that the Hellcat Charger has horrible instant torque, and the way to avoid idle tire slippage is to replace the tires with wider tires or buy hot melt tires, but hot melt tires are usually used at the track. When installing wider tires you need more space to avoid friction between the tires and fender or liner, at this point, you need negative offset aftermarket rims or wheel spacers to solve the problem. Installing wheel spacers preserves the stock rims and provides enough backspacing space, but in addition, wheel spacers can be used or removed typically when you change to other tires.
Take Hellcat Charger as an example of the American muscle car, the most concern when driving on the road is the grip and ride comfort, wheel spacers can provide for Hellcat Charger is the adjustment of the track, installing the appropriate wheel spacers can better use the leverage of the bearings, more stable when the vehicle is driving at high speed.
Along with the amazing instant acceleration of the Hellcat Charger, braking system upgrades are necessary. Brembo, Alcon, AP Racing, and other performance brakes are often found on sports cars with high horsepower, and these performance brakes are larger, have more pistons, and require more space to install. When you replace a set of $100,000+ Aftermarket rims and then install $100,000+ performance brakes and find that the wheels won’t fit, which one do you choose? wheel spacers exist to help provide the best of both worlds when it comes to choosing between the two. Wheel spacers can be purchased in thicknesses to suit your needs. Providing the right space for your calipers, they also allow your wheels to fit smoothly while still keeping your car safe to drive.
Wheel spacers are able to adjust the amount of offset. The excessive positive offset can cause expensive damage to the inner edge of the wheel and tire rubbing on the body or suspension, interference with brake components, risk of tire failure, poor handling, and make your car unstable. Likewise, too much negative offset can increase steering wheel kick-back, additional stress on the entire suspension, poor handling, and wheel spacers by increasing the space for backspacing and thus correcting excessive positive offset. Adjusting the offset of the Hellcat Charger by wheel spacers is also sometimes based on customer preference, for example, the customer in the picture prefers to have the wheels flush with the fenders or even protruding outward a bit.
Wheel spacers help the Hellcat Charger achieve more consistent cornering performance. By installing wheel spacers, additional traction is gained and the center of the vehicle is more evenly distributed to each force point. The wider track will help drivers who go off the track to corner faster and improve their performance.
Wheel spacers enhance off-road vehicle anti-roll. Most off-road models have high ground clearance, or have adjusted ground clearance to improve off-road performance, and with this comes the problem that a track that is not long enough leads to an increased likelihood of roll when passing an obstacle. The reason why wheel spacers are preferred by a large number of customers who like off-road is that wheel spacers are more convenient and cheaper than choosing a proper set of negative offset.
An alternative to negative offset value wheels. If it is for the right offset value, wheel spacers are more affordable than a new set of alloy wheels.
