Guidelines for Installation or Changing

Wheel Spacers

These are the guidelines that must be followed for the installation for changing the custom wheel

spacers for your vehicle.

Use the appropriate spacer

The wheel spacers that are being installed should be the right one for your car. Check with the

manufacturer regarding the model of the car which can use the spacer. Spacers which are not

fitting properly should not be used.

Wheel nuts to be loosened first

The car must be parked on a plain surface that is hard in nature. The nuts which hold the wheels

with the hub need to be loosened a bit at first but not completely removed. It should be done

before raising the vehicle with a jack.

Use a jack for lifting the tire

A jack needs to be inserted under the vehicle for raising the vehicle. It has to be put at a proper

point where it can withstand the load. Using the jack, a tire is lifted entirely from the ground and

the weight of the vehicle is borne by the jack stand. Precaution must be taken as to not to work

underneath the vehicle while it is lifted with a jack, as there are chances of falling off and

causing serious injury or even death.

Remove the wheels

The nut of the lugs of the tire that has been raised has to be removed. The wheel has to be taken

out after sliding from the hub. The studs of the lug need to be cleaned with the help of a

degreaser and a rag. The entire surface of the hub needs to be cleaned. If it is too dirty and

rusted, a wired brush usage will help in cleaning it appropriately.

Fix the spacers securely

An engineering adhesive such as Loctite should be used for securing your custom wheel spacers

during fixation. Loctite must be placed on the wheel studs. The fixing of the spacers need to be

done firmly onto the wheel studs and it should be attached securely with the hub. The nuts need

to be tightened properly. A proper torque wrench must be used for the fixation. The nuts should

not be made too tight or too loose.

Attach the wheels and secure firmly

The wheel needs to be slid onto the studs that are attached to the wheel spacers. The wheel needs

to get securely attached with the spacers. After this, the main lug nuts of the wheel need to be

tightened onto the wheel to secure them firmly. The bolts are tightened and the wheels and the

spacers re properly fitted onto the vehicle. After this, the jack has to be removed after lowering

the jack stand. All the above steps need to be repeated for all the other wheels.

After all the above processes are over for all the wheels, all the lug nuts need to be tightened so

that they do not come off by any means. These nuts needs to be checked occasionally as there are

chances of breakages at times.
