What is a wheel spacer?


 Wheel spacers widen the stance of a vehicle using the factory wheels.  Unlike Wheel Adapters, spacers will keep the same bolt pattern as the vehicle.  Spacers are available in two main designs, hub centric and lug centric. US Wheel Adapters manufactures bolt-on and slip-on style spacers.  Slip on style spacers slide over the existing studs, so it is important to make sure that there will be enough thread left past the wheel spacer to securely install the wheel.  Bolt on wheel spacers bolt to the hub of the vehicle using the factory studs and provided lug nuts.  You can then secure the wheel to the studs of the spacer using the factory lug nuts already on hand.
