    Why does there need to be more of a reason?

      because the center line of rotational force emanating from the spinning wheel at the hub is off set when using a spacer transferring the weight of the vehicle off the supported hub and onto the lug nuts eventually shearing them and placing the wheel firmly into the wheel well throwing the car into a ditch.They can work in some cases but only to a degree, More spacer offset increases chance of failure. Then add hard driving.

        Unless you're using 6 inch spacers or chinkshit that doesn't have a hub support recess turned into it, this doesn't happen. Worst thing is added axial stress on your wheel bearings mildly reducing their life, which is a non-problem if you're not a Black person and replace your bearings when they need it. Quit being a hysterical Karen.

        99% of wheels factory have been hubcentric since the 60's. Domestic and imports.
        And if you're running aftermarket wheels they are properly designed for your vehicle and not generic multi-bolt pattern chinesium, right?

          No, I don't have those issues, I got the correct staggered rims for my vehicle with proper offset when I decided I wanted new wheels.

    eh spacers do widen your trackwidth marginally which affects handling in theory. even though it also adds stress to the wheel hub bearings. also can correct suspension geometry sometimes. is it noticeable? probably not. definitely not worth the extra hassle and increased failure points at the wheel assembly.

    • 2 months ago

      They absolutely effect handling because weight transfer is dependant on track width. My focus has about a 2" wider track in the rear and it shows thru as oversteer since that axle now takes a greater load when cornering similar to what a swaybar does

        no doubt, but 2" is fairly drastic (about 50 mm) and it seems like unnecessary complexity and extra stress introduced by something that could have just been fixed with a stiffer bar. stiffening the bar would only affect roll stiffness and not roll center height though so I can see the benefits if the geometry is mainly what you were trying to correct.

          Car doesnt have spacers the whole rear suspension is custom to accommodate awd and the car for the longest time did not have a rear bar. I will at some point throw spacers up front to balance it out though.

    It's for looks. If you wanted to increase width for a performance reason you'd do it right and buy wheels with the offset you want or if you're an extra special race team maybe even fab up your own control arms and uprights. Spacers are rice.

    They do nothing but make the car more unreliable, dangerous, and slower

    but it tickles some weird autism this new generation has. They keep rambling on about "wheel gap" while making their cars infinitely shittier.

      longer studs or spacers with studs on them are fine. All they do is wear out wheel bearing faster. Theres nothing dangerous about them boomer

      Correct, typically this is true more than anything else.
      >>but some (rare) cars are shipped factory with spacers.

      yes, they probably took that into account when working out the steering geometry for that car where broccoli hair beaner zoomer does not. And its still not typical or standard. So, I saw it done one time on one car so means I can do it to all cars all the time, right?

        There are different standards when it comes to factories. Plus, some cars are designed and created with the intent to use spacers.

    Completely necessary sometimes to either clear brakes, or clear suspension. Usually remedied by coilovers, but that could be temporarily out of reach since purchasing new wheels and rubber. Though if it's a big spacer (i.e. 10mm+) then it's usually just for stance gays

    Sometimes you need spacers for brake clearance if you buy new rims.

    There's the Land Cruiser 70, when it got updated with a diesel V8, Toyota increased the front track width to allow for a wider engine bay. But Toyota was too cheap and lazy to increase the rear track width to match which makes it worse off-road since the rear tires can't follow the grooves left by the fronts.

      how would spacers allow you to have a wider tire

      • 2 months ago
        Anonymous

        if you push the wheel 1in closer to the fender, usually that frees up 1in of possible wheel width.
        I don't use spacers like the rest of this thread is talking about, but that's one reason.

        most stance gays just install some horrible china spacer and hope for the best.

          why not just use the correct offset wheels to accomplish the same thing? if you want more rubber you have to go wider anyway so it's not like you're going to keep the old wheels.

            Why not buy me some custom forged wheels?

            if they're not available, that's a good reason. but if one of the standard sizes works for your application that would be the obvious choice.

            Why not buy me some custom forged wheels?

            I have Custom forged wheels.
            but since race tires are turbo expensive, usually race gays buy wheels we can rotate.
            I use a 5/8in custom billet spacer in the front so I can rotate all 4 wheels.
            Forged wheels are usually Lug centric. 200,000psi ARP studs take care of any safety issues.

    reminds me of the cpu boxed fans.
    you can fit any other fan and then imagine that you tuned the cpu.
    but when the professional test results are presented the included fan typically is in the top5 results.

    I also wanted to install spacers, just less than an inch.
    but the frick, do you even know if this isnt ending in fricking up a very good chassis setup??
    ferrari sells cars that value precisely this, and money probably doesnt play a role for them.
    so you definitley should assume that they were thinking of something.

    install it on your standard street car for look if you like but hands off from tuned racing tech.
