What Are Spacers, And Why Might I Use Them?

Shown here in green is a wheel spacer, which serves as a shim to relocate a wheel further outboard and create a more negative offset. Also shown in green are longer lug bolts, which are often included with spacers. 



 If your wheels sit too far inboard (positive offset) or wider tires have created a rubbing situation against the inner wheel well liner or suspension components, wheel spacers are simple, round metal plates that correct these issues by mounting on a wheel hub assembly to relocate a wheel to a more outboard (negative offset) location.
