As a result, wheel spacers that are correctly mounted are completely safe. The wheel stud applies a clamping force to the hub, which keeps the wheel in place. The wheel studs flex elastically as the lug nuts are tightened, similar to stiff springs. Tighten the lug nuts until the stud reaches 90 percent of its elastic limit. Look at Wheel Spacer Installation.
Do wheel spacers affect anything?
Wheel spacers occasionally produce an accelerated wear pattern on your vehicle's hub components and suspension. You can place stressors beyond the tested tolerances the manufacturer recommends because you're building a wider track than What was originally meant for the frame to sustain. The material is at the heart of our wheel spacer, and we take it extremely seriously. Each spacer features a precision machined surface.
How do I know if I need wheel spacers and wheel adapters?
Using washers as a measuring tool for the spacing required is one option. If your wheel has lug studs, you can install washers on the studs and remount the wheel to check for clearance against the suspension. You'll need a spacer the same size as the thickness of the washers you're using. These bolt-on hub centric wheel spacers are designed to offer you a bit more width without having to replace your axle. On a 5.5′′ circular circle, the bolt pattern is 6 studs. Furthermore, each wheel spacer is centered on the wheel and hub centric rings for a flawless fit. These wheel spacers are 1-1/2" thick and have a 6 lug x 5.5" Toyota design. This is the most popular wheel spacer thickness for Toyota trucks since it reduces the width of a front live axle from 1979 to 1985 to 58-1/2 inches, which is the same width as a Pickup/4Runner 4cyl or 6cyl rear axle from 1986 to 1995.
