5 bolt wheels


Recommended Posts

My car has a fairly odd bolt pattern. 5x110.  I need 17” wheels to clear my brakes.   I run spacers, so I could adapt to whatever 5 bolt pattern I want. Is there a very common pattern that I should aim for to save money on wheels. More common used ones for example. Or should I not bother, and just buy wheels with my pattern?

Redrill your hubs for 5 x 115, lots of old tuner rims in 17" that are now out of style. I've been picking up 17 x 8 and 17 x 9 for an average of $50 Cdn/rim. Might even be able to swap Equinox hubs on. You'd have to check dims.

A lot of BMW rims are 5x120. Lots of reasonable used rims and great aftermarket support with many width and offset options. I just got some Apex ARC-8's for my car, as it was the next logical step in our build. The $70 used OEM set I got 2-3 years ago had been good to us.

5x120 is also the GM wheel spacing from the 90's up on camaros and corvettes, so there are some other options as well.   

5x120.65 (4.75")

 

That's the "standard" bolt pattern GM has used since at least the 60's. (Large cars were 5x5)

 

Gen 5 and up Camaros are 120 for some reason.

 

Have heard of people using BMW wheels on Camaros with no problems. Have also heard they tend to loosen up.

I know very little about 5 bolt wheel applications, but as someone who has a car that started out with even weirder 4X110 wheels I can feel your pain and offer some general advice about wheel adapters. Whatever you pick make sure it fits an application that is very popular in the aftermarket, I used 4X100 Miata wheels because nothing has as many reasonably priced options available. You will probably need wheels from something that uses a pretty large offset, because there is a limit on how thin you can make the wheel adapters. Big hint, if you look at the picture of my car closely you can see that there is a big difference between the thickness of the front and rear adapters, that is not unintentional.
