Official Release:

Whittier, Calif. (September 2013) –  Pontiac had it right when it championed the benefits of a “Wide Track” in its 1960s advertisements. Not only does a wider track enhance a car’s stability, but it also improves its traction and steering response. But to achieve this wider track width, either a new set of with more aggressive offset must be utilized or wheel spacers must be installed to move the existing wheels further out. Now, Trans Dapt offers an affordable and durable option with its hub-centric billet aluminum wheel spacers that allow you to maximize the track width of your ride without compromising  safety.

When choosing the right wheel spacer for your car there are two different styles available – lug-centric and hub-centric. Lug-centric spacers, or shims, merely slide over the vehicle’s existing lugs and move the mounting surface further outward. While these types of spacers are inexpensive and easy to use, they do not allow the lug nuts to engage as much of the lug bolt and can create a shearing force that can cause the lug bolts to break off. In stark contrast to lug-centric shims, Trans Dapt’s Billet Aluminum Wheel Spacers are a hub-centric design that bolt onto the factory lugs and include a new set of lug bolts integrated into the spacer. This design allows the wheels to have a much more solid surface to mount against and allows the lug nuts to more fully engage the lugs.    

Trans Dapt’s Billet Aluminum Wheel Spacers increase your vehicles track width by a total of  1 1/4-inches per side for a total gain of 2 1/2-inches and are available in a variety of bolt patterns, center hole diameters, and bolt sizes to fit most popular vehicles. CNC-machined out of 6061-T6 Aluminum are built to last and feature pre-installed Grade 8 hardware. Starting at $145 per pair, these spacers won’t break the bank and are a great way to add clearance for aftermarket big brake kits or adapt positive offset wheels to a car that requires negative offset. 

Trans Dapt Billet Aluminum Wheel Spacers come with all hardware necessary for installation and are sold in pairs.
