This is the diameter of the wheel, which is measured in inches from the tyre mounting surface on one edge to the opposite edge on the alloy wheel, for example 18”x8” with 18” being the wheel diameter.
This is the width of the alloy wheel which is the maximum width across the tyre mounting surface on the wheel, measured in inches for example; 18”x8” with 8” being the wheel width.
The number of holes the wheel has to bolt it to the vehicle hub. Racing nut applications are listed under 15x130 under PCD.
This is the Pitch Circle Diameter, which is the diameter of a line drawn through the centre of the bolt holes and is measure in millimetres (mm). Normally this is displayed in this format 5x112 with 112mm being the PCD and 5 being the number or holes. Racing nut applications are listed under 15x130
This is the value in kgs which the alloy wheel has been load rated to carry. The same wheel design can have different load ratings depending on the size and PCD of the wheel among other factors.
The offset is the distance between the wheel centre line and the mounting face of the wheel. Measured in millimetres (mm) and normally displayed as “ET45” on a wheel (ET45 being an example of an alloy wheel with a 45mm offset), the lower the number the further out the wheel will sit when bolted to the vehicle. Every vehicle has a permissible offset range which is dependent on a number of factors.
This is the approximate weight of the wheel in Kgs; please note every care is taken to ensure this value is accurate to +/-5% but errors can occur in our data.
This refers to the alloy wheel Bead Seat Contour, in short a slight raised hump on the alloy wheel tyre mounting face to help ensure a Runflat tyre, when driven with no air does not come off the wheel easily.

Alloy Wheel Diameter
A quick and easy way to find out the size of your wheel is to check the radius (R) of your tyre e.g. 205/45R15 tyre would indicate you have R15 = 15 inch tyre on your car. As a result of your tyre size, the diameter of your alloy wheel will be 15" also.
Alloy Wheel Width
To find out the width of your alloy wheel, you will need to check on the alloy wheel itself.
On every alloy wheel the size will be stamped into the alloy wheel, this stamp can be on the outside but is usually stamped on the inside of the alloy wheel on the back of the spokes.
For example, the stamp may read 15 x 7, 7 x 15, 15x7JJ etc. The second value in 17x7 indicated the width of your alloy wheel, in this case the wheel is 7 inches wide (with a diameter of 17 inches).
