Installing Wheel Spacers for Toyota 4x4 Solid Front Axle. The pros and cons of using wheel spacers.

How to install wheel spacers on a Toyota 4x4. My thoughts on using wheel spacers, some of the pros and cons of using wheel spacers, and some of the tricks I've learned in dealing with wheel spacers over the years. Generally, I'm a fan of wheel spacers. The biggest thing is just to realize that you've deviated from the factory tolerances and that parts (like wheel bearings) are going to wear faster from strain that falls outside the design parameters. but, if you're running tires big enough to need wheel spacers, you probably know that already. I say it in the video, but I can't say it enough: Check those nuts that hold the spacer on often. Wheeling rigs have a freakish ability to loosen everything attached to them.

DIY: Wheel Spacers on Toyota FJ Cruiser
Today we install some wheel spacers on my brothers Toyota FJ Cruiser. He went with the Spidertax 1.25” Spacers on all 4 axles and it definitely made his car look a little meaner. In this video, ill show you what I did to prepare and install these spacers onto this FJ.

Wheel Spacers - Are They Safe?
This video is to discuss wheel spacers and their safety. Personally, I use them in the winter on my Tundra, I think they can be safe if you get the right ones. However, the wrong spacers can be extremely dangerous! Please be careful...

Wheel Spacers & Adapters - Good Or Bad?
Are wheel spacers safe? Are wheel spacers a good idea? Integra Wheel Spacers - Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - How will wheel adapters affect handling? What effects will wheel spacers have on suspension geometry? Wheel spacers can help with fitting big brake kits, altering wheel offset if aftermarket wheels are used, and can widen a car's track, thus reducing load transfer and ideally improving handling. That said, wheel spacers affect suspension geometry, and will change the scrub radius, affecting braking stability, and also reduce the effective spring rate at the wheels. Wheel spacers can also cause wheel bearing failure.

Which of these 7 incredible wheel designs do you think is the best? Are these the future of wheels?

Soft Wheels When Israeli farmer Gilad Wolf broke his pelvis in 2008, he resolved not to lets his crops wither and die. He then became determined to turn his wheelchair into a workhorse. After suffering the pain that came from traversing the bumpy rows of his field in a stock chair he began developing new designs better suited to off-road applications. 6. Morph Wheels Though compact folding bikes have been around since the late 1800s, the large wheel was the one component that designers couldn’t quite figure out how to collapse down to size. Solving this very dilemma was what Duncan Fitzsimons had in mind initially when he began experimenting with early prototypes for a wheel that could be folded down just as easily. Along the way, the London-based industrial designer came to the realization that the need for space-saving parts was perhaps even greater among disabled people, since they would often rely on both wheelchairs and mass transportation to get around. 5. Hub-less wheel (Sadabike) Sleek and minimalist, the hub-free wheel has a kind of gloriously futuristic quality that seems to really speak to designers and sci-fi aficionados alike. Functionally, though, the design offers relatively few advantages. Italian designer Gianluca Sada, however, has a more practical rationale for going with the hollowed approach. His foldable Sadabike prototype was conceived in a manner as to allow the wheels to be removed and slipped into slots located along the lining of a custom-made elastic bag. The frame can then be folded down to the size of an umbrella and stored inside the bag. 4. Wheels of Steel For a bolder take on a maintenance-free wheel, check out the WOW Bike. Not only does the eccentric creation do away with pneumatic air pressure, it doesn’t need a tire either. What you have instead is an all-metal wheel made of cleverly meshed sprung steel. To construct the wheel, designer Ron Arad bent individual strips of steel according to a strategic pattern and pinned them together at certain tension points. This allows the steel to form curves that cushion one another and provide proper ride support. They’re also built larger than conventional wheels to compensate for the material’s high degree of flexibility. 3. Michelin Tweel The creation of an “airless tire” has become something of a holy grail in the tire business. Leading the way is the well-publicized Michelin “Tweel,” a rubber tread tire that’s reinforced by a hub system comprised of an outer rim and a series of bendable polyurethane spokes. Like pneumatic systems, the unique structure is designed to support the weight of the vehicle while also being flexible enough to absorb shock. Other similar prototypes include Bridgestone’s airless tyre, a honeycomb spoke design, developed by Wisconsin-based Resilient Technologies, and an all-polyurethane version called the i-Flex. 2. Lunartic_Hubless Wheel Prototype Big wheeled bikes are very stable, due to the gyroscopic effect of the large wheel. But small wheeled bikes take up less space and are very manoeuvrable. The Lunartic is a bike design submitted for a Dyson Award that tries to combine the benefits of both. The hubless wheel is driven by a toothed track inside the wheel. Given that the spokes of a conventional wheel are an incredibly light and sophisticated way of holding a wheel's shape and giving it strength, one wonders what one gains by eliminating them. Perhaps having all of the greater weight of the hubless wheel on the outside increased the gyroscopic effect and adds to the stability. Or maybe it just looks really cool. 1. Roadless Project At its most basic form, wheels are particularly well-suited for traveling along flat, even surfaces. And though such ideal conditions hardly exist in the real world, city-dwellers can typically get by on paved roads with a standard set of tires.
