If you're fitting aftermarket wheels and going up a size, you may need to look at fitting a wheel spacer to ensure that there is enough clearance for suspension, brake calipers etc. We have a number of spacers in differing widths to suit the smallest 3mm requirement up to 20mm wheel spacers by the high quality brand of MOMO.
Important Safety Information You should tighten all nuts or bolts to car manufacturer's recommended torque setting. The information can be found in the vehicle handbook. You should also check the tightness of all nuts or bolts after the first 100 miles and periodically check tightness thereafter.
- Before fitting wheel spacers, you need to make sure that you remove any dirt of rust deposits from the wheel hub. It is important that this surface is free and clean from any debris.
- Ensure that the wheel spacer can be fitted tight up against the wheel hub. There must be no protrusions on the hub from nuts, bolts, clips etc.
- You must make sure that when the wheel spacer is fitted that the wheel and tyre will not foul the suspension or the bodywork. This is very important and should be checked before the vehicle moves or is driven.
- You need to ensure that any nuts or bolts to be fitted with any wheel spacers fit the vehicle and that they are the correct length and seat. In this regard, when fitting wheel spacers, longer wheel bolts or a wheel stud conversion may be required.
- When the wheel spacers are fitted, you must make sure that there is a minimum of 8 full turns on the wheel nuts or bolts when tightened.
- You should tighten all nuts or bolts to car manufacturer's recommended torque setting. This information can be found in the vehicle handbook. Do not over tighten and do not use an air gun.
- Check the tightness of all nuts or bolts after the first 100 miles and periodically check the tightness thereafter.
- Use basic safety rules at all times and if you are in any doubt you should contact a qualified mechanic.
