Are spacers on wheels safe?
Therefore, properly installed wheel spacers are perfectly safe. The wheel stud applies a clamping force that holds the wheel to the hub. When the lug nuts are tightened, the wheel studs stretch elastically, like very stiff springs. The lug nuts should be tightened until the stud is at 90% of its elastic limit.
How many inches is a 25mm spacer?
These 25mm (1″) Wheel Spacers will widen your track by a total of 50mm (2″), which can also reduce center of gravity and increasing stability.
How thick should a wheel spacer be?
The size spacer you need will be equal to the thickness of the washers used. If a spacer greater than 5mm is needed, you may need to also purchase extended lug studs or purchase wheel spacers with studs.
