Wheel Dimensions Definition Guide

We created this wheel dimensions definition guide to shed some light on some of the common terminology used. It is our opinion that an educated customer is a happy customer, and customer satisfaction is our top priority.

Whether you’re in the process of replacing your vehicle’s OEM alloy wheels, or you’re looking to pick up a spare set of steel wheels for the winter, if you don’t know the correct terminology you may end up ordering a wheel that doesn’t properly fit your vehicle. Ordering the wrong wheel product can cost you time and money. If your vehicle is not drivable while you wait for your replacement wheel, this will only add to your headache.

Car Wheel Dimensions and Terminology

While it can be helpful to know these terms, if you are simply replacing a damaged factory wheel with an identical OEM product, you can expect the rim to fit your vehicle perfectly, so long as it is a genuine OEM wheel that was designed for vehicle, assuming you have not made any aftermarket changes to your vehicle’s suspension system, etc.

Car Tire Dimensions and Terminology

If replacing your wheel with an identical OEM replacement,  you can assume your existing tires will transfer to the new wheel just fine. However, if you plan on buying replacement wheels and tires at the same time, you may need a refresher on some car tire dimension terminology.
