Wheel Spacers: Because it’s cheap and easy The not so final frontier

Obviously you cannot increase the width of a factory wheel, but you can change the offset with a wheel spacer. Because the factory wheel options are the same widths and offsets (aside from the performance model), we can easily recommend wheel spacers to achieve a more “flush fitment” at a much lower price point than completely new wheels.

We will be recommending anything between a 10-15mm spacer front and rear. We do not recommend running staggered spacers as changing the wheel track on a non-staggered wheel setup is generally not ideal for handling. 10mm will be better suited to a stock height Model Y and 15mm will be recommended for a lowered Model Y (the suspension moves inboard as the car is lowered creating more room to move the wheels out – reference the diagram in the “Effects of Lowering on Fitments” section). It is also important to note that 10mm spacers will require or come with extended lug studs so the install cost of these could be significantly higher. Most 15mm + spacers can be purchased as a “bolt on” type so they are quick and easy to install.

The Model Y’s center bore is 64.1mm with a 5×114.3 bolt pattern. So when shopping for wheel spacers you want to make sure they match both bolt pattern and center bore. You can check out our selection here: Tesla Model Y – Wheel Spacers
