Why you should know your Volvo’s lug pattern

You’ll need to know your Volvo’s lug pattern whenever you want to change your tires. Your lug pattern also called your bolt or stud pattern, breaks down into two numbers; the number of lug holes on your wheels and the diameter of the imaginary circle they form around the rim. 
So if your 2011 Volvo S60 has five lugs at a 4.25 diameter, your lug pattern will be written as 5x4.25
Anytime you’re looking to change your wheels, be it for wear and tear or a stylistic change, you’ll need to know your lug pattern and other wheel measurements to get tires that fit.

Lug pattern terminology 101

If you’ve never found the lug pattern on your Volvo, or any car before, the table above might make your head spin. Not to worry! Let’s go over the terminology used above to make it easier to read. 
OEM wheel size: OEM stands for “Original Equipment Manufacturer,” which refers to the original wheel size your Volvo was manufactured with. You’ll need to match the right size if you want to install new rims or get new tires. 
Lug pattern: This figure shows the number of lug holes followed by the diameter of the circle they form around the inner rim. Use this pattern to find a wheel that fits your Volvo. 
Offset: A wheel’s offset is the distance from the mounting surface to the center of the rim, basically how deep the center of your rim sits in your wheel. A positive offset means the wheels are pulled in towards the car; a negative offset means they’ll stick out. 
Stud size: Stud sizes are written in two different ways. US fasteners are expressed as stud diameter x threads per inch (e.g., 1/2x20), while metric fasteners are written as stud diameter x distance between threads (e.g., 14mm x 1.50). 
Center bore: A wheel’s center bore is the opening that centers the wheel on the hub. Different models will have different-sized center bores, so this measurement is important. 

How to measure your Volvo’s lug pattern

If you don’t see your Volvo on the list above, don’t worry! You can find your lug pattern yourself using a ruler or measuring tape
First, count the number of lugs on your wheel. Most Volvos will have five. Once you’ve counted, it’s time to find your diameter.
Place one end of your ruler at the edge of any lug hole and hold it straight across the circle. On a five-lug pattern, this will land you between holes, so move the other end of your ruler or tape measure to the closest lug on either side and measure to the center of the lug hole. The number you get is your diameter! 
So if you count five lugs and measure 4.25 inches for your diameter, meaning your Volvo’s lug pattern is 5x4.25.
