Wheel Fitment Guides
There's a lot of factors that go into wheel fitment, which can vary depending on the vehicle, ride height of your suspension, camber angle and tyre size. We can reccommend wheel fitments for your vehicle if you get in touch with us, however fitment may vary depending on these factors.
WHAT IS WHEEL PCD?
Wheel PCD is the most important factor for wheel fitment - it is the measurement of the wheels wheel bolt/stud pattern. It needs to match your vehicle to allow the wheel to be fitted.
The wheel PCD is normally shown in a 2-number format, seperated by an X.
For example: 4x100.
This means that there are 4 holes on the wheel, and each hole is separated by 100mm.
It works the same way for other fitments, such as 5x114.3mm. This means that there's 5 holes, seperated by 114.3mm.
WHAT IS WHEEL WIDTH or "J"?
The wheel width is measured in inches, and often listed as a number with "J" at the end. Typically wheel widths range from 7" to 10" however they can go as low as 5.5" or as high as 12" in some instances.

WHAT IS WHEEL OFFSET?
Wheel Offset is often overlooked, but is important to whether the wheel will fit, or how it will look. The offset is normally displayed as the letters "ET" followed by a number. For example, ET25. Offset is a measurement from the wheel's mounting face (where it fits against the hub) and the center of the wheel. A 25 offset means the wheels mounting face is 25mm from the centre of the wheel.
This number can be a positive or a negative number, however most commonly it is a positive number. It directly effects how far a wheel will sit inwards/outwards from the centre of the car - a lower number sits further away from the car, a higher number sits closer in to the center of the car.
A common mistake with offset is when people get offset recommendations but fail to take the wheel width into account - the offset is directly affected by the wheel's width, so this is important to consider!
Wheel fitment can be confusing to get your head around. We can advise you on what will fit your vehicle.
