Hi everybody,
Today I would like to share something about installing 15mm+20mm BONOSS Forged Active Cooling Wheel Spacers for my Honda Civic 10th(FC) with you.

My Honda Civic 10th(FC):
Chassis model: X (FC)
PCD: 5*114.3 mm
CB: 64.1 mm
Thread: M12*1.5 mm

I got them on eBay, took me several days to receive them. I can't wait to install them on my vehicle.
But before you choose the right spacers, you need to measure the thickness data that fit the wheels:

Cleaning the wheel hub:

Much better after cleaning. Now let's get to the installation part:

Since I get the right data, I can install them easily!
Let's take a look:


Fit perfectly, right?


As you guys can see, compared with the original car, it has been greatly improved in appearance and stability.
Thanks for reading!

Does it really matter if the car in the post is electric?
This could be a useful post for an EV'er wanting spacers for either looks or wider rims.
Personally I do not like the idea of spacers.
First because it is extra lug bolts that can become loose and second because it puts extra bind on wheel bearings.
The later can be more of a problem with an EV conversion because the vehicle usually ends up weighing more than it did in stock form.
Car designers factor in the proper off set on wheels to more evenly distribute weight on inner and outer wheel bearings.
By extending the off set more weight is being placed on each bearing causing more wear and early failure.
I guess it can be argued that improper off set could cause more drag on each wheel and that is something you don't want with an EV.
