Measure Bolt Center

Measure Bolt Center

Bolt pattern or bolt center is the diameter of an imaginary circle formed by the centers of the wheel lugs.


Odd (5 bolt)

With 5-lug wheels, there is not a hole directly opposite any hole.  Please note that the measurement is only an estimate, unless accurately measured using a bolt pattern gauge.

Measure from the center of one hole to a point halfway between the two holes directly opposite on the bolt circle.  You must adjust slightly


Even (4, 6 or 8 bolt)

Measure center-to-center of holes directly across from each other.



ALTERNATE METHOD  for 5 bolt wheels

Measure the distance between the center of one bolt hole to the center of the bolt hole adjacent to it.  Compare the measurement with the chart below.

2 5/8" 5 on 4.5"
2 3/4" 5 on 4.75"
3" 5 on 5"
3 1/4" 5 on 5.5"
