Wheel spacers can create a space for wheels when cornering. Installing high quality aluminum wheel spacers not only brings the a visual change but also more comfortable driving experience.

When to choose the correct wheel spacers,the model of vehicle is for reference, thickness,hub bore size,bolt pattern and thread/nuts are also important specifications.
-Lug Centric or Hub Centric Wheel Spacers?
Lug-centric: the wheel uses the lug studs to support the wheel. Then uses tapered holes and nuts to align/center the wheel, as well as keep it compresses to the hub.
Hub-centric: uses the axle hub to center and support the wheel. Uses the lug studs as compressive force to keep the wheel tight to the hub.
The most common type of wheel spacers used for 350z’s are hub centric. Hub Centric 350z Wheel Spacers are designed to make sure the weight of Nissan 350z is carried evenly on the hub instead of on your wheel studs. Hubcentric Wheel Spacers are machined in a way that helps them to sit perfectly between your 350z’s wheel and hub, with a locating ring on the hub side that is the exact same size as the hub. That is to say, your wheels are perfectly centered to your Nissan 350z’s wheel hubs. There’s no movement and no vibration through the wheels, meaning a nicer ride, and a lot less stress on your wheel studs.
- 350z Wheel Spacers Thickness
The common wheel spacers thickness is 1 inch, 1.5 inch and 2 inch. For nissan 350z wheel spacers, we are focusing on 20mm spacers and 1 inch wheel spacers, because those are the sizes you will typically need to get the best wheel offset for your Nissan 350z.
-Hub Bore Size
The center bore is the large middle hole machined in the wheel to properly seat the wheels on the vehicle hub.The center bore of the wheel must match the vehicle hub size,otherwise it couldn't be installed. Vehicles by year, make and model use different hub diameter. The 350z hub bore size is 66.2mm.
Bolt pattern is the diameter of an imaginary circle formed by the centers of the wheel lugs. The common bolt patterns can be 4 lug, 5 lug ,6 lug and 8 lug. How to measure bolt pattern? You could count the number of bolts you have on your hub by doing the following.
In this case, you know that you’ve got a 5 lug wheel, but what is that second number? That’s the diameter of the circle formed by the centers of the wheel lugs. It can appear in either inches or millimeters, so be sure you know which one you’re looking at. Since the 350z’s bolt pattern is 5×114.3, which indicates a 5 lug pattern on a circle with a diameter of 114.3 mm, only 5×114.3 wheel spacers or 5x4.5 inch wheel spacers are compatible with your nissan 350z.
This is calculated by measuring the distance in millimeters between 10 threads. This number is then divided by 10. Nissan 350z wheel bolts will have a thread pitch of 1.25mm.
