The Jeep Gladiator has a bolt pattern of 5x5—each of the Gladiator’s wheels has five bolts that form a circle that’s five inches in diameter. Let’s look at the other data you’ll need when upgrading or replacing your Gladiator’s wheels.
Through the decades, Jeep has built a reputation for itself as unwavering as its vehicles are off-road. And the Gladiator adds a whole new level of functionality to the Jeep brand. A Jeep pickup with more towing power and a bed for stowing all of our camping gear? Yes, please.
Jeep owners are known for pushing their vehicles to their limits off-road, and many will upgrade their Jeeps to make that happen. And whether you’re overhauling your Jeep Gladiator’s wheels or simply need to replace a wheel damaged during a weekend rock crawl, it’s useful to know your Jeep Gladiator’s bolt pattern—let’s get to it!

Jeep Gladiator bolt pattern

Like so many other vehicles wearing the Jeep badge, the Jeep Gladiator’s bolt pattern is 5x5, or “five on five”. That’s true regardless of your model year, too. A 2022 Jeep Gladiator and a 2020 Jeep Gladiator will both have the same bolt pattern.
What does “5x5” refer to? Simply put, the first number refers to the number of bolts, or lugs, used to keep each wheel connected to the vehicle. The second number refers to the diameter, in inches, of a circle drawn around those bolts.
Put another way, your Jeep Gladiator’s 5x5 bolt pattern means it has five bolts in a circle and that circle has a five-inch diameter.
You’ll also need to know some other important information when replacing your Jeep Gladiator’s wheels: 
  • Factory wheel size: 17” and 18” (2020 and 2021 models also had 20” options)
  • Stud size: M14 x 1.5 (14 mm diameter studs with 1.5 mm thread spacing)
  • Center bore: 71.5 mm
  • Wheel tightening torque: 176 Nm

How to measure your Jeep Gladiator’s bolt pattern

Now that you know your Jeep Gladiator’s bolt pattern, this is a great opportunity to quickly learn how to measure other bolt patterns in the future. It’s easy to do, and the information might come in handy someday!
To do this, you’ll need some sort of measuring tool—a ruler or a measuring tape will do. Now, align it with the center of any bolt and measure to the outer edge of one of the bolts on the opposite side. This works on any wheel with an odd number of bolts.
If you’re dealing with a wheel that has an even number of bolts (usually four or six), you can measure from the center of one bolt to the center of the opposite bolt to find the diameter.
Knowing this, figuring out the bolt pattern is simple: it’s the number of bolts x the diameter of the bolts in a circle. Testing this out on your Jeep Gladiator, you’ll come up with 5x5.
