In a perfect world your wheel/tire combo would always put the most rubber on the road for optimal traction and handling, have the flush stance that makes you look over your shoulder when walking away from your ride, never hit the frame or fenders, and allow clearance for brake mods. Let us know when you find this mythical Shangri-La. In the real world we have to roll with what we have, including wheels that may not have the right offset or bolt pattern.

Wheel spacers position the wheels further away from the hubs. This can place the tires closer to the edge of the fenders to gain that desirable “flush stance”, and widen the track, which also increases stability for better handling. Installing wheel spacers can also provide clearance for wider tires and allow the installation of aftermarket big brake kits. Adapters both space the wheels out and allow wheels with a different bolt pattern to be mounted.

We offer a wide range of spacer and adapter widths so you can position your wheels exactly where you want them. Thin spacers of 8mm or less may be able to be used with the standard length studs or bolts if enough thread is available for safe wheel fitment. A thicker brake rotor on a big brake kit and wheel thickness are other variables that must be considered. Some kits may include longer bolts or studs or specify the length that must be used for safe installation. Thicker spacers push the wheels too far out to use the stock studs/bolts, and come with studs installed or include longer bolts according to application.

Hub centric rims locate the center of the wheel on a flange projecting from the center of the hub. These wheels must be centered this way to prevent runout and vibration. We offer spacers that are also hub centric to maintain wheel balance. They fit over the hub flange and have a projection to locate the wheel the same way. And if you can get a good price on a great set of wheels, but they have the wrong bolt pattern for your vehicle, you may not have to pass up the deal if you get a set of our adapters. Adapters not only convert bolt patterns but some may allow mounting of wheels with a different number of lugs.

Our spacers and adapters are made of lightweight but durable aluminum, and precision machined to the specific size to ensure proper fitment and dimensional accuracy. Most are anodized to prevent corrosion. Wheel spacers are an economical alternative to custom wheels. They can space your factory wheels out closer to the fender to get the right look, allow a set of larger tires to be installed without rubbing, or enable a set of aftermarket wheels with not quite the right offset fit in your wheel wells and look great.
