## How do I find my stud pattern?

Measure from the middle of one stud to the outside of the second stud (skipping a stud). The number you see will be the actual measurement of the bolt pattern. So if you see 4 1/2 inches, you have a 5 on 4 1/2 ( also 5×4.5 and 5×114.3) bolt pattern. Other common bolt patterns are 5×4.75 and 5×5.

## What is the bolt pattern on a Ford Transit van?

Ford Transit-250 wheel bolt pattern. Select the year

## How do I know the PCD of my wheels?

The easiest way to calculate the PCD is as follows:

## How do you know if a PCD has 3 holes?

To calculate the P.C.D. of a three stud wheel or hub measure between two holes next to each other (as with five stud below) and multiply by 1.154. The P.C.D. of any wheel or hub with an even number of holes can be measured from the inside of one hole directly across to the outside of the hole opposite.

## What PCD means in Tire?

Pitch Circle Diameter

## How much offset difference is OK?

Even if the tire and wheel have enough clearance, the wrong offset can decrease vehicle stability. Generally, with new wheels, you don’t want the new offset to be more than 5 millimeters different from the old offset.

## Can I use rims with different offset?

If the new wheels are the same width, the new offset should ideally be within 5mm of the old offset in either direction. If offset must be substantially different, avoid using more positive offset at all costs. If the new wheels are wider, backspacing must be calculated.

## Does the offset of a wheel matter?

Why Wheel Offset Matters Wheel offset is one of the major determining factors on whether a wheel will fit your car or truck. As a general rule of thumb, most front wheel drive vehicles have a positive offset. If you want to put wider wheels on your vehicle than OEM, you generally need to reduce the offset.

## What offset will make wheels stick out?

When bolted up to your car this means that a lower offset wheel will stick out farther. If your car was originally equipped with a +50mm offset and you replace it with a +25mm wheel, the wheel will stick out approximately one inch farther. Obviously, a negative offset works the same way.

## Do I want negative or positive offset?

Positive offset creates more backspace, while negative offset reduces backspace. The example shown here is 6 inches wide with a 3 inch backspacing. This would be the equivalent to a zero offset wheels since the mounting surface aligns with the centerline of the wheel.
