How to Measure Bolt Patterns?
To measure 4, 6 or 8 lug bolt patterns simply measure across the center of the hub from the center of one lug to the center of the lug furthest from it. This will give you the diameter of the circle in which the bolt pattern resides. On 5 and 7 lug patterns there are not two lugs across from each other to measure to. The closest way to get a measurement without a bolt pattern tool is to measure from the center of one lug to the outer edge of the lug furthest from it.
What is Wheel Offset?
Wheel offset is the measured distance from the mounting surface to the center line of the wheel. It is measured in millimeters and is described in either positive or negative offset. Positive offset is when the mounting surface is closer to the outside or street side of the wheel, and negative offset is when the mounting surface is closer to the inside or brake side of the wheel.
What is Wheel Backspacing?
Wheel backspacing is the measured distance from the mounting surface to the inside edge or rim of the wheel on the brake side. It is measured in inches and can be measured by laying the wheel face down, spanning a flat object across the wheel edges and measuring down to the mounting surface. Both backspacing and wheel offset can determine what wheel is correct for your application.
