It's Joe from AmericanTrucks. In this video, we're going over the Coyote 1.5-inch build aluminum hub-centric six-lug wheel spacers fitting all '99 and newer Silverados. Now, something like this is gonna be great for you if you're looking to basically take your wheels and move them out 1.5-inch. Now, that extra poke is gonna have some added benefits. Number one, if you're looking for a little bit more clearance in the fender liner area, this is gonna help you out with that. Just by having a wider track width, you're gonna get some off-road benefits as well as some handling benefits. Something like this is gonna look cool once it's installed on your truck, and it's all gonna come at a budget-friendly price tag.So, what do we have going on here with these wheel spacers? First thing's first, let's talk build quality, and frankly, these are gonna be a little bit better than some of the wheel spacers you might find on a more budget-friendly site, maybe like eBay. Usually eBay spacers, they're gonna be made out of a cast aluminum, and that's just not gonna be as structurally strong as what these are. These are 6061-T6 billet aluminum, and that's really what you want for a spacer. All in all, these are gonna add 1.5-inch of negative offset. And for you metric guys out there, that's gonna convert to about 38.1 millimeters of extra poke out of your wheels. Now, moving the wheels out, they're gonna have a bunch of different benefits. But what these are gonna help with the most is gonna be clearance in the wheel well area. If you guys just picked up a set of aftermarket wheels or you're having trouble clearing some suspension components, or maybe you're just catching a fender liner, a set of spacers like these can really help with fitment in the wheel well area, so that is definitely a huge plus.Secondly, by widening the track width, you're gonna get some basic off-road benefits just by having the wheels more outboard from the body of the truck. Handling benefits are gonna come from that as well. A lot of people say they feel a little bit more grip when they do something like this, so that is gonna be a huge plus. And, of course, the looks. If you're looking to improve stance and just get an aggressive mean set of wheels underneath your truck, something like this can really add to the appearance as well. Now, wheel spacers, they're not all pros. There are some cons that I do think are worth talking about. A big one is gonna be accelerated wear on the suspension components. What you're doing here, moving the wheel out, basically creating a bigger lever arm between your suspension and the actual contact patch of the tire, so when you hit a bump it just multiplies those forces, especially on the wheel bearing, that's usually the first thing to go when it comes to a set of spacers. Now, another potential con with spacers like these, it's gonna be scrub radius, and what scrub radius is, is basically how far the tire is gonna move forward or back when you turn the steering wheel. And, of course, moving the tire away from the pivot point, when you turn that wheel it's just gonna move further and back a little bit extra, so that's just another thing to keep in mind.Now, just to go over some numbers with these wheel spacers in case you guys need them, the bolt pattern is gonna be six by 5.50, lug studs, they're gonna be M14 by 1.5, and the center bore is gonna be 78.1 millimeters, all specific to Silverado, gonna be a perfect match if you have a factory truck. Now, speaking about hub bore, it's definitely something worth mentioning that these are gonna be a hub-centric wheel spacer over what's called a lug-centric wheel spacer. Now, what that means is it's gonna use this bore right here to basically center this up on our truck and keep it exactly where it needs to be. All the forces are gonna be distributed along this lip right here on the backside, and then all the forces from our tire are gonna meet up with this lip right here and that is gonna take some force as well. Now, hub-centric, it's just a better design overall than lug-centric. Distributing the forces around that ring is gonna add to durability and it's gonna keep the spacer exactly centered. With lug-centric, things tend to shift, and having weight on the lug studs, not a great idea for durability in general, so another huge plus of these wheel spacers.Now, if 1.5 inches is just a little bit too aggressive for your truck, Coyote does give you some options. You can get these in different sizes ranging from 1/4-inch all the way up to the full 2 inches just depending on where exactly you want your wheels to sit. This is gonna be a little bit more toward the middle ground, not their most aggressive option, but definitely gonna add some extra poke as well, as you guys can see.So, next up, let's talk about pricing. Now, wheel spacers in general, budget-friendly mod. However, this is a nice pair, gonna be a little bit more toward the expensive side. You're looking at about 75 bucks, and that is the price for two of them. So, keep in mind if you do want to do all four corners, you're gonna have to pick up two pairs, cost you right around 150 bucks, still not too bad. And even included in that price is a one year warranty.So, let's get to the good stuff. Let me show you how to get these installed on your Silverado. Really, really easy. Basically, uninstall is as simple as changing the tire. One thing I do want to make a quick note of is we are gonna have to break out the cutoff wheel just to trim our lug studs a little bit. Otherwise, they do sort of poke beyond the spacer itself, and you want your wheel to actually sit on the face of this. So, the lug studs will require trimming. I'll show you exactly how that's done in just a second. But with all that said, one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. Should take you at most an hour to get all four corners done. So, without any further ado, let me show you what tools you'll need, and how it's done. Tools required for this install will be an impact, 19-millimeter socket, whatever socket you'll need to remove your lug nuts, ours are aftermarket, but we used a 22-millimeter, some blue Loctite, safety glasses when you're using the cutoff wheel, a torque wrench, and last but not least, not pictured in the shot will be the floor jack.So, our first step to the install here is, obviously, we gotta get our wheel and tire off. So, we're gonna jack the truck up safely, of course. If you do plan on going underneath, make sure you use jack stands and do this properly. But again, we're gonna jack it up, get the lug nuts off, and then remove the wheel. Now, in our case, we have these aftermarket wheels, so they're gonna require the six-spline key in order to remove the lugs. Yours will probably be either a 21-millimeter or a 22.So, now that we have the wheel and tire off, now I can show you guys exactly where the cutoff wheel is gonna come into play. If I put the spacer on, you can see that the lug studs there, they're gonna come out past the spacer, and when you go to put the wheel on, the wheel's gonna be resting on the lug studs and not on the actual face of the spacer in this hub-centric ring in the middle. So, that's gonna be a problem. Those lug studs are gonna have to get trimmed up a little bit. Thankfully, they have an extra little bit of length here on the end. That's really no harm if you lose it, it's not threaded. So, we're basically gonna cut that off, and this is gonna go on just fine. Now, one thing I do recommend, just in case you do hit the threads on here, you can take these lug nuts and just thread them on. Not only can you use it as sort of a pseudo cut guide, but if you do nick any of the threads when you back this off, the nut is gonna basically clean them up. So, now that we have those installed, we can go to work with the cutoff wheel.All right, so we have all of our studs tuned up a little bit. They're a little bit shorter now, and if I put the spacer on, you guys are gonna be able to see that now all the studs are in board. We didn't mess up any of the threads either, so no love lost. Now, at this point, I'm gonna go ahead and grab the blue Loctite, medium strength, and put that on the threads here. It's always a good idea when applying a spacer to throw some Loctite on there as well, but since we're shooting a video, I'm actually gonna skip that step. In your case, you would do that, but once you have that done, go ahead and put the spacer on, and then you could apply your lug nuts.Now, also, as far as cutting the lug studs go, depending on what kind of set of wheels you have, you might have that board out behind your wheel, so just take a look at the back of the wheel and check. In our case, you can see we have the multi-bolt pattern wheels on ours. They definitely do not have a space for those to poke through, but you might be able to get away without cutting. And just to take down the threads, I'm gonna use the impact. Now, we can break out the good stuff and actually torque those down. Torque spec for M14 gonna be about 90 foot-pounds. In our case, we're gonna go do an even 100 just to be on the safe side. Now it also helps if you have a buddy around, somebody to step on the brakes, can hold the hub still, while you go ahead and torque these down.That's gonna do it for the install. You're just gonna repeat that process on all three other corners. But that's gonna do it for my review and install of the Coyote 1.5-inch billet aluminum hub-centric six lug wheel spacers fitting all '99 and newer Silverados.
