In 2003 Toyota wanted to capture the young market segment, so it began to produce the Scion vehicles, a new trade name. To achieve this Scion presents compact sports cars with a “pure price”. Their main feature is a wide selection of various original and aftermarket accessories and options.
As of August 2013 Scion finished producing cars under its own brand, promising to restart some models under the Toyota brand in 2017.
Do you want to update your car’s outside appearance or increase the wheel width? Does it seem too expensive and stressful for you? We know how to do it with a minimum of conscious effort! All it takes is to buy wheel spacers. It is simpler than rebuilding half of your chassis, you know what we mean.
By the way, installation of non-standard wheels assumes the correct fastening of rings, adapters, and hubs. You can choose everything you need for Scion in our online catalog of the large variety of spacers and adapters. And, make no mistake, we offer only proven sire products. These spacers hold a specific place between wheel and hub. They have to support the severe load. However, the spacers should be lightweight to prevent the suspension parts from getting worn out before their due time.
It is logical to assume, that only high-cost enough material provides both lightness and strength. Aluminum spacers have particular advantages to be the first-choice ones for you despite their stiff costs.
To understand what a bolt pattern is like, it is enough to connect all the lugs into a circle. Its diameter is a bolt pattern with a various number of holes from 4 to 8 and more. There are 2 values identify the holes quantity (the first figure) and the distance between them in mm or inches (the second figure). let us assume that you have 4×100 bolt pattern. It means your wheel gets 4 studs and a 100-mm diam.

In order to achieve the right torque, you need a sequence of operations using adequate tools.
Never start working with dirty, oily or hurt parts. First of all, you need to tighten all lugs manually. It is important for you to keep the cruciform shape and not loosen the nuts. Next, use the dynamometric tool to determine the correct torque and adequate tightening of the lugs. It’s the only way to minimize the risk of improper distribution of pressure on the wheel parts.
Here are the main factors affecting inaccurate torque:
