that shows diameter, bolt circle and offset/backspace?

i see some factory 17x7 rims have the MM equivalent BS of 5-1/8" and a bolt circle of 120mm. that equates to 4.72441.

can i use a 120mm bolt circle on my 4-3/4" bolt circle hub or will the .025 difference create an issue?

if a chart is available i'd like to look at factory wheels that fall into the dimensions that would fit...


Thanks...

I can imagine .025 making a difference in 4.750 dia. They most likely had a tolerance bigger than that putting the holes in the axles. That's just under a 1/32".

The hard part with finding factory wheels is the 5 on 4 3/4 bolt pattern. Most foreign cars use 5 on 4.5.
It would seem all manufacturers are joining the 5x4.5 wheel pattern but be careful the hub hole is not always the same and it supports some wheel designs.

It should be noted that the 4.75 bolt pattern actually measure out to be 120.65mm. This seems like a negligible difference, but on cars that get driven hard or see crappy roads on a regular basis, accidents have happened:

I say you should be able to run them for the moredoor. Just use good studs and hub centric rings, if available.

Best,
Don
