Heeltoe Video Explaining Bolt-on Wheel Hub Spacers

This video help you understand a little more about how these bolt-on spacers work.

You've seen all kinds of wheel spacers and here we are explaining how the "bolt-on" kind work. Some spacers do not have studs in them and require extended studs to be installed to fit them to the hub. Wheel Hub spacers and adapters such as these Garage Line parts are hub-centric and bolt directly to your car to space the wheels out.

You should always make sure you get good quality spacers because the studs need to be OE quality or better and the spacers themselves need to be strong. This stuff holds your wheel on and can break if the quality is poor.

The difference between a spacer and an adapter is that a spacer moves the factory wheel out with the same bolt pattern, and an adapter will act as a spacer but also change the bolt pattern, allowing you to use a 5x100 wheel on a 5x114 hub, for example.
