A 1995 Ford Ranger bolt pattern is 5x5.5 or 5 on 5.5, meaning each wheel has five bolts forming a circle five and a half inches in diameter.
Whether you’re a classic car enthusiast, or simply driving a hand-me-down 1995 Ford Ranger that’s still truckin’, it may be time to swap out those wheels for something bigger, shinier, or with more rough-and-tumble. Before you can make these modifications, however, you need to know your vehicle’s bolt pattern.

But what does that mean, exactly? Well, every bolt pattern (sometimes called a lug pattern) can be expressed as:
# of bolts x diameter of the circle they form
A 5x5.5 bolt or lug pattern means your Ford Ranger’s wheels have five lugs each, set in a circle five and a half inches in diameter.
Looking to change your wheels? Then you’ll need to know a little bit more than just your bolt pattern. Here are a few other essential specifications you’ll want to memorize before you go shopping:
How to measure your Ford Ranger’s bolt pattern
You shouldn’t need any more information than what’s listed above to swap out your wheels—however, if you ever need to measure your lug pattern by yourself, it’s a pretty easy process!
Simply whip out your handy dandy measuring tape or 12-inch ruler. Measure the distance from the outer edge of any lug hole to the center of one of the two bolts opposite. Think of the Ford Ranger’s bolt pattern like the five points of a star—every bolt has two bolts directly across from it, so that’s why you can pick either one to get an accurate measurement!
You’ll use that diameter measurement as the second number in your Ranger’s bolt pattern. To get the first number, just count the number of bolts on a single wheel. (Hint: the answer should be five!)
