5 Steps for Installation of Truck Wheel Spacers The wheel spacers that are fitted in trucks are made of metal. They are fitted in the middle of the wheel and hub of the vehicle. There are wide ranges of these spacers that help the wheels to be placed away from the main body of the vehicle. On fitting these materials the vehicle track becomes far wider. This gives more of stability to the vehicle. Even the driving and the controlling of the vehicle become easier. This is the reason of their popularity in the usage in the larger vehicles like the trucks. The installation process of these spacers includes a few steps that have to be followed. These steps have been discussed below. Multiple benefits can be achieved with the spacers On the fixation of the truck wheel spacers there are many things that can be achieved. The movement of the truck becomes far safer. When moving at high speed it will have a higher stability and there are lesser chances of tolling over. The ground clearance will increase and the control and the maneuver of the truck become easier for the person who drives the truck. The suspension of the trucks will improve. This will lead to lesser wear and tear. The jerking will reduce with the fittings of the spacers. The cost of maintenance will come down. The parts of the truck including that of the suspension will have a prolonged life.

After the parking is over the nuts which hold the wheels of the truck with the hub needs to be loosened. Then the floor jack needs to be placed securely and the truck has to be jacked up. It should be supported by the jack stand after this. This procedure has to be done for all the four wheels.  Once the initials step is over the wheel needs to be removed. The nuts need to be unfastened and the wheel can be removed from the hub of the truck. The degreaser material should be placed over the studs and has to be cleaned with the rugs. They need to be cleaned up thoroughly. If there is too much of slime wire dusters should be used for the clean-up process. The hub surface should also be cleaned up thoroughly.  After this the wheel insertion is slid inside the knobs. It has to be seen that it is not the type as bolt on. The spacers need to be placed on the studs and is fixed firmly with the hub.

 The wheel spacer is inserted in the studs in case it is a bolt on type. After this the lug nuts have to be placed so that it is attached firmly with the hub. The bolts are available with the stores selling the spacers is there are not there with the spacers. The nuts are tightened so that the entire fixation is firm and secure.  The wheel is then slid into the lug studs and the fixation is made absolutely firm. The nuts are then inserted into studs of the lugs and using the wrench it is fixed up firmly so that it does not come off while in motion. This procedure has to be followed in each side so that all the wheel spacers are properly fixed. At the end of the process the jack stands are to be removed by lowering of the jacks.
