Wheel spacers (https://orionmotortech.com/collections/wheel-spacers-update) are discs that are installed between the rotor and the wheel. The purpose of installing wheel spacers is to widen the offset of the wheels and thus widen the spacing between the tires. This provides a handling advantage even if the tire size remains the same.
By widening the wheel offset (and pushing the wheels further away from the chassis), the wheel spacers reduce body roll. This helps improve the lateral grip of the tires. This gives your car better handling and faster acceleration out of corners. All of these advantages are achieved without you having to change the size of your tires. Of course, with the increased spacing between the wheels, you are able to change to wider tires, further improving traction and handling. Spacers can also change the balance of the car’s handling. For example, if you install spacers in the rear instead of the front, you will get more grip in the rear. This in turn can cause your car to understeer, with the front turning to the outside of the corner during a turn due to the increased grip in the rear.
Whether you are a car enthusiast or not, there is no denying that wheel spacers change the overall style of your vehicle. Installing spacers allows your wheels to be flush with the fender flares and the wheels to stick out from the edge of the body (but not past it) giving the car a better “stance”
The problems caused by installing improper, low-quality wheel spacers on your car can outweigh the performance benefits they provide. That’s why it’s worth taking the time to find quality wheel spacers for your car.
