In this video, I go over the proper installation of wheel spacers. Ensuring they’re mounted properly is CRUCIAL for the safety of yourself and others. The most important part of the installation is the use of a torque wrench. Whether you want one just to get you by, or you’re looking for a really nice torque wrench, I’ve included a few below to give you options if you’re looking to pick one up.

With your torque wrench, you’ll have to set it to your specified lug nut specification, and torque the hub-centric wheel spacer to the hub of the car. I’ve included a bunch of spacers that will work for most vehicles, ranging from 4×100 to 5×120 so what you should need should be there.

As an extra precaution, you can apply some 3M copper anti-seize to the faces of the brake rotor and the face of the wheel spacer to prevent corrosion ▶︎ http://amzn.to/2la9Srh
After you have the spacer torqued to your hub, torque your wheel down to the spacer using the same torque spec as before. Lower the car on the ground and take the vehicle for a test drive. After taking the car for a drive (around 50-100 km’s) and get the brake warm and let them cool, remove your wheels from the car, and retorque everything to ensure everything is tight.
DO NOT use thread locker on any of the threads, or any lubricants such as copper antiseize, as you will be altering the torque spec of the lug nut.

Will 1/4 inch spacers eliminate rubbing on a 2017 Ford Super Duty with Toyo RT 37/12.50/20 tires? Almost.
Update: these free floating type spacers leave little surface for hub centric wheels to center on. You have to carefully center the wheel while setting the lug nuts or the wheel will feel like it is out of balance.
