The What's What about Bolt Patterns

990 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  marty1
There are arguably more aftermarket wheels available today than ever before - but how do you know which ones fit?

Your vehicle requires a wheel with a specific bolt pattern in order for it to safely fit. This is determined by the number of bolt holes the wheel has and how they are spaced apart.

Dual bolt, single bolt, and bolt circle are a just a few terms used in identifying if a wheel fits safely. What does all of this mean though? How is it measured?

Find the answers to these questions and more in our bolt pattern overview linked below.

You also need to take into account whether your vehicle is hub centric (which earlier CR-Vs are, not sure about the 5th Gens), and get a wheel with the correct center opening to fit the hub size, or get an appropriate hub centering ring.

Thank you for the post, racoon!

Offset/backspacing, rim width and center bore diameter are definitely other pieces of the overall fitment. The main purpose of this thread is to educate those on bolt pattern lingo, if you will.

Here's a good write-up we put together on center bore/hub centric rings: The Skinny on hub Centric Rings | CRVownersclub

Do you know if 03 Element OEM alloy rims would fit a 2015 CRV LX?
Welcome to the site, big e!

From a dimension point of view (I.E. Width, Offset, Hub Bore, Bolt Pattern, and Stud), they should work. The only thing I can't see is the caliper/rotor tolerances. Chances are they will bolt right up, but I strongly recommend a test fit first just to be certain.

On a side note, if you enter your year, make, and model on our site, all the wheels that are displayed are guaranteed to fit your vehicle without modification. This helps take out the guess work on what will and will not fit.
