Alloy Wheels Search
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.

At Performance Alloys.com ® we stock two different brands of locking wheel nuts: McGard Locking Wheel Nuts and Standard Locking Wheel Nuts. These are used to secure your alloy wheels and prevent them from theft. We highly recommend purchasing a set to ensure your investment in alloy wheels cannot be stolen.
McGard Locking Wheel Nuts
Considered by many to be the best available on the market and are fitted to many new cars as standard equipment: BMW, Mercedes, Porsche, Volkswagen to name a few. They have consistently won awards from many car magazines like Auto Express and What Car. German made.
Standard Locking Wheel Nuts An alternative more economical choice of locking wheel nut available to suite most car and 4x4 applications which require security when fixing alloy wheels to a car. Italian made.
McGard’s easy to use, one-piece wheel lock nuts functions like a regular nut, but requires a special key tool for installation and removal. Its design
allows for an unlimited number of different computer generated lock and key patterns. This unique wheel lock system is
continually being refined and improved upon. McGard Locks are made in Germany to meet or exceed O.E.M. standards for safety and durability. Presently,
McGard is an Original Equipment wheel lock supplier to over 30 car lines around the world. Compare the features and you’ll see why McGard is the best
wheel & tyre protection available.
8 different hex key sizes
McGard is the only manufacturer to offer 8 different key hex sizes to match the vehicle’s original equipment nut or bolt wrench. You will appreciate this important feature when you have to change a flat tyre along the roadside.
User friendly keys
Steel collar guides the key into the lock pattern. Simply place the key over the lock and turn until the patterns engage. The collar holds the key in alignment for easy installation and removal.
Computer generated extra narrow groove key patterns
The computer generated key designs allow for an infinite number of key patterns. The narrow groove resists the intrusion of lock removal tools into the pattern
The best chrome plating in the industry
The best in the industry. McGard’s process includes three layers of nickel and one layer of microporous chrome. The first layer of nickel is for corrosion resistance; the second layer of nickel is for luster and the third nickel layer interacts with the microporous chrome layer to disperse nature’s corrosive action (rust).
Through-hardened steel construction
McGard only use restricted chemistry steel, made in Germany, specifically for McGard. These special standards insure the structural integrity of each and every fully machined McGard wheel lock. Every lock is through-hardened and tempered, reaching the depth of hardness needed for its unsurpassed level of security (unlike case hardening which is only a surface treatment).
Core integrity and precision machining provide the highest strength in the industry. All McGard locks and wheel nuts meet or exceed the highest OEM proof load standards, 135,000 to 160,000 PSI.
Precise bearing surfaces
McGard’s standard for concentricity of the bearing surface to the pitch diameter is 30% more precise than OEM standards. This insures even distribution of the clamp load and uniform seating of the lock to the wheel.
