Wheel spacers will not void your warranty unless somehow your wheel bearings are broken. However, modern car manufacturers engineered the tolerances of the wheel bearings to handle more than the OEM load. Wheel spacers cause no more damage than offset wheels. As long as you install correctly, properly sized and hub-centric spacers will have a negligible effect on the bearing. In other words, even with long-term use, your car warranty is definitely not affected by wheel spacers.
In reality, wheel spacers have little effect on bearing life. Even some famous aftermarket wheel manufacturers offer spacers to fit their wheels. Numerous aggressive-looking cars on the road are actually with wheel spacers on. They have been used for decades. Few bearing failures are caused by spacers. It isn’t a common problem. Get genuine wheel spacers and have them installed by professionals, then there is nothing to worry about.
What Are Proper Sizes of Wheel Spacers?
Proper-size wheel spacers are completely within the bearing capacity. For spacer size, it really depends on the car. If you run with OEM wheels, then measuring the wheel gap help you figure out the perfect size. If your car has a 1-inch wheel gap, then 25mm wheel spacers will be perfect to achieve a sporty and flush look. As a rule of thumb, keeping the wheels still covered by the fenders is a very safe operation. This normally won’t cause any rubbing issues.
Tire professionals always recommend using hub-centric wheel spacers. When talking about hub-centric spacers, hub height is an important factor. A spacer with a well-beveled hub-centric ring clears the OEM center bore fine. BONOSS wheel spacers are designed with multi-stage hub-centric rings. The hub-centric metal ring is machined to be multi-layers, and the bevels fit the corresponding hub flange perfectly. Using such wheel spacers, there will be less chance of vibrations.
Why Warranty of Wheel Spacers is Important?

Generally, warranties are clearly stated in the manufacturer’s conditions. When you shop, compare warranties of the wheel spacers along with prices and product features. There is no doubt that the longer the warranty, the better.
