Carnoisseur PCD And Offset Guide
BOLT PATTERN (PCD)
This is the most basic criteria - if you don’t get this right then your new wheels won’t even bolt onto your car.
You need to know how many bolts (or nuts) are holding each wheel on. This is typically 4 or 5, but it can be between 3 and 8.
You also need to know the diameter of the circle that the centre of these bolts (or
nuts) lie on (see diagram below). This is measured in millimetres, it is called PCD
(pitch circle diameter).
Different vehicle manufacturers use different bolt patterns. They are denoted by
numbers such as “4x100”, “5x114.3”, etc. The first digit refers to the number of bolts and the second to the diameter of the circle they lie on.
We only display wheels with the correct PCD for your vehicle.
Offset is the measurement taken from an imaginary line drawn through the centreline of your wheel, to the flat mounting surface that bolts to the hub.
It is measured in millimetres and is usually stamped on the rear of the wheel. The easiest way to think about it is that the higher the offset the further the wheels will sit into the vehicle; the lower the offset the further out it will be positioned, sitting closer to the outer arch.
Each vehicle has a suitable offset range. We only display wheels with an offset that is suitable for your vehicle.
