Re: Wheel Spacers on my 2014 Limited 20" Rims
Here is what I found on the net.. 85% think Spacers are safe 15% think it's unsafe..
Quotes from the web..
Spacers are safe if you use the hub centric ones with the little lip around the center hole. The weight of the wheel is on the lip/hub and not on the threads. In my opinion most spacers sold are not the best. Spidertrax, teraflex, Eibach/H&R are usually good
Spidertrax and teraflex are "hubcentric" unlike the inferior rough country spacers which are "lug centric".
Use locktite and Follow steps:
1. Clean mounting surfaces and studs. Make sure the assembly clips are removed from the studs.
2. Install spacers.
3. Torque nuts on spacers.
4. Install wheels and torqe nuts.
5. Drive around 10 miles.
6. Remove wheels.
7. Retorque spacer nuts.
8. Install wheels and torqe nuts.
9. Repeat steps 5-8 until you get no rotation on spacer nuts when you torque them.
Check the torque on the spacers any time a wheel is removed. This will be at least every 3000 miles when I rotate the tires.
Make sure you cut that little ring off of each of the five threaded OEM posts. It may or may not have these little clips, just watch for them because they'll prevent the spacer from mounting perfectly flush.
Hope this helps..
Not sure if Spacers will void the warranty, will check with the dealer next week
