Basic Information About Wheel Spacer:

What is a wheel spacer, and what does it do for my vehicle?

A wheel spacer is a simple yet effective automotive accessory designed to create extra space between your vehicle’s wheel and hub assembly. It pushes the wheel outward, providing several benefits, including improved handling, enhanced stability, and the ability to accommodate larger tires or aftermarket rims.

Common Materials for Wheel Spacers:

Wheel spacers are commonly constructed from robust materials such as aluminum and steel. Aluminum spacers provide a lightweight and corrosion-resistant choice, suitable for a range of uses. Conversely, steel spacers are known for their outstanding strength and durability, often preferred in demanding or off-road scenarios.

Manufacturing processes for wheel spacers:

Wheel spacers are primarily manufactured using two common processes: CNC machining and casting.

  • CNC Machining: CNC machining offers precision and allows for intricate designs and customizations. It is often favored for high-quality, precision spacers.
  • Casting: Casting can be a cost-effective method for producing large quantities of spacers, but it may not offer the same level of precision as CNC machining.

The choice depends on factors like budget, quality, and customization needs. CNC machining excels in precision and customization, while casting may be cost-effective for larger production runs where extreme precision isn’t vital.

Advantages and disadvantages of installing wheel spacers on a car:

Advantages:

  • Improved Appearance: Wheel spacers improve the vehicle’s stance, giving it a more muscular look.
  • Enhanced Stability: They can enhance stability during high-speed driving and turns.
  • Lightweight: Wheel spacers are made from lightweight materials like aluminum alloy.
  • Space for Brake Upgrades: They create room for larger brake calipers.

Disadvantages:

  • Ride Comfort: On uneven roads, vehicles with spacers may experience more bumps and vibrations.
  • Varied Quality: Low-quality spacers can negatively impact your vehicle’s hub and wheel assembly.
  • Tire Wear: Altering the wheel track width can cause abnormal tire wear.
  • Not for Heavy Loads: Not recommended for heavy loads due to potential tire rubbing.
  • High-Speed Vibration: Poorly balanced spacers can cause high-speed vibration.

Two types of wheel spacers:

Wheel spacers come in two main types:

  • Hub-Centric Spacers: Precisely fit over the wheel hub, ensuring proper alignment and reducing the risk of vibration or wobbling. Provides secure and balanced connection.
  • Lug-Centric Spacers: Center on the vehicle’s wheel studs, creating extra clearance. Requires careful installation and alignment for balance and vibration prevention.

Step-by-step Buying Guide

Choose The Right Size and Type:

  • Before measuring for spacers, it’s crucial to allow your vehicle’s suspension to settle for about five to ten days. Accurate measurements are essential because even slight errors can impact your car’s handling.
  • To measure for spacers, you’ll need a straight edge and a ruler. Identify the point of least clearance between the tire or wheel and the fender.
  • Measure the distance from this point to the straight edge. This measurement will help you determine the appropriate spacer size.
  • Consider factors like stretch tires, coilovers, and your vehicle’s daily driven ride height when selecting spacer size.

Material:

We only offer High-strength aerospace-grade aluminum for custom wheel spacer.

Manufacturing Processes:

First, heat the aluminum block and forge it into a rough Wheel Spacer shape, then use CNC machining for precise finishing, allowing for cost savings and efficient production.

Finishes : 

  • anodized coatings
  • Polishing
