Wheel Fitting Information
How to choose your new wheels
Step 1 - Find out what stud pattern/PCD you have.
Pitch Circle Diameter - You need to know the pcd or Pitch Circle Diameter. This is the diameter of the invisible circle formed by scribing a circle that passes through the centre point of each mounting hole. We express this as the number of holes / the diameter in mm.

The offset of a wheel is the distance from its hub mounting surface to the centre line of the wheel. This is expressed in mm with the letters ET preceding the measurement e.g ET35.
Alloy Wheels -
All SSP custom alloy wheels are supplied with chrome valves, centre caps and the correct bolts or nuts. Always check for bolt to brake clearance by rotating the wheel prior to tightening the bolts. Some early 5 stud cars may require the bolts to be shortened.
