If you are in the market for a new set of wheels for your vehicle, knowing the bolt pattern of the wheel is a must.
Not all vehicles have the same bolt pattern and it can vary for different vehicles.
Buying the wrong wheels for your vehicle can be frustrating and could be a costly mistake.
I have put together a list of vehicles that all have a 5 x 100 bolt pattern for you to reference along with other important information about bolt patterns in general.
What does bolt pattern mean?
As mentioned, the bolt pattern for a set of wheels can vary from vehicle to vehicle. The bolt pattern refers to a 2 number system that measures the layout of the mounting holes on a wheel.
The bolt pattern is also known as the “lug pattern” or “bolt circle”.
If you draw an imaginary circle around the center of the lug nut holes and measure the diameter of the circle, this is part of the bolt pattern.
The first number of the 2-number system refers to the number of bolts on the wheel and the second number refers to the diameter of the imaginary circle around the lug bolts.
For example, the following image explains a wheel with a 6 x 120 bolt pattern.
Most vehicles will have 4,5,6,8 lug nuts on a wheel. Wheels with 4,6,8 lug nuts measure the bolt pattern in the same way. The diameter of the circle is measured through the center of the lug nuts.
However, if your vehicle has 5 lug nuts, the bolt pattern is measured slightly differently. The diameter of the circle is measured from the back position of one lug hole to the center of the lug hole that is directly across from it.
The following image explains a wheel with a 5 x 120 bolt pattern.

Will a 5 x 100 bolt pattern fit a 5 x 112 vehicle?
Many people think that a 5 x 100 bolt pattern wheel can fit on a 5 x 112 bolt pattern vehicle but this is not the case. It will not fit properly. It’s possible to have the wheels redrilled or you can purchase a wheel adapter kit.
5 x 100 Bolt pattern in inches
Although bolt patterns are measured in millimeters, you can easily convert it to inches. A 5 x 100 bolt pattern measures 100 millimeters.
100 millimeters equals 3.937 inches. Therefore a 5×100 bolt pattern in inches is 5 x 3.973.
