lug patterns vary widely, so it’s important to learn what the numbers mean and where to find your specific model’s measurements. 
Whether you’re off-roading and need to replace a rim or if you’re simply upgrading to a better wheel, you’ll need to know your vehicle’s lug pattern. Chevys can handle a little adventure, but it’s also important to prepare for misadventure!

coverage as well as your Chevy lug pattern—so you’re prepared for anything the road throws at you. Let’s dive in!

Why you should know your Chevy’s lug pattern

Your lug pattern (also known as a bolt pattern) is a two-digit figure that describes the number of lug holes on your Chevy’s wheels and the diameter of the imaginary circle those holes form.
Here’s an example: a 5x4.53 lug pattern means the wheel has five lugs arranged in a 4.53-inch circle.
If you switch out your wheels or get new rims, you need to know this number. You can find your Chevy’s lug pattern on the table below—or you can measure it yourself.

Lug pattern terminology 101

You might feel a bit confused if you’re a newbie to this terminology. Let’s clarify some important definitions so you can easily navigate wheel replacements.
OEM wheel size: OEM means “Original Equipment Manufacturer,” so OEM wheel size is the diameter of the original wheels installed by the manufacturer. To install properly fitting rims, you’ll need this accurate measurement. 
Lug pattern: This two-digit figure describes the number of lug holes and the diameter of the circle they make when measured. With this number in hand, you can easily find the correct wheel replacement for your Chevy. Note that this may also be called a bolt pattern.
Offset: This means the distance from the center of the room to the mounting surface. If the offset is negative, the wheels will stick out slightly. If the offset is positive, the wheels are slightly pulled in towards the car. Most Chevy OEM wheels have a high (+35-45) offset. 
Stud size: First, determine whether a measurement is in imperial (inches) or metric (millimeters). US fasteners are written as stud diameter x threads per inch (e.g., 1/2x20), whereas metric (Canada, UK) measurements are written as stud diameter x distance between threads (e.g., 14mm x 1.50).  
Center bore: The opening that centers the wheel on the hub is known as the center bore. This hole may vary in size between vehicles, so you’ll need the specific measurement for your Chevy. 

How to measure your Chevy’s lug pattern

Is your Chevy on the list above? Great, you’ve got the lug pattern! If your Chevy was not on the list, just grab a ruler or measuring tape to measure the lug pattern yourself.
Step one—count the lugs. You’ll probably have 4, 5, or 6 on your Chevy. 
Step two—measure the diameter. Start at the outer edge of any lug hole and measure directly across the circle. If your vehicle has an odd number of holes, measure to the center of the closest lug.
Now you can put these two numbers together to find your lug pattern. If you have five lugs and you measured a 4.72-inch diameter, your Chevy’s lug pattern is 5x4.72 or 5 on 4.72.

FAQs

No! It’s not a straightforward conversion. A 5x114.3mm metric bolt pattern is the same as a 5x4.5 inch. The metric conversion for a 5x5 lug pattern would be 5x127mm.
Sometimes they do, yes! However, you should still measure carefully to ensure that you can use a wheel intended for a Dodge on your Chevy.
