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 offer a tyre pressure monitoring system for tyre pressure monitoring. It is made by Schrader Electronics which supplies tyre pressure systems as standard original equipment for the following car manufacturers:
As we have tried and tested many different tyre pressure systems for tyre pressure monitoring, we found the AirAware™ system by Schrader Electronics to be the best for a number of reasons:
As a result of these findings Performance Alloys.com® recommend the AirAware™ tyre pressure monitoring system.
A tyre pressure system like AirAware™ is designed to monitor the pressure and temperature of your tyres. This sensor continually sends information about your tyre pressures and temperature to the receiver which you can keep anywhere in your car. The receiver has no wires and uses 2 AA batteries which are included. It is small and can be kept in your ashtray or anywhere in your car. It comes with Velcro pads which enable it to be secured in any area in your car. Other systems we tested are much larger and used power from the cigarette lighter. The AirAware system lets you check the tyre pressure and temperature of each wheel, and if it drops below a set pressure it will emit an alarm warning you. Ensuring that your tyres have the correct pressure is vital for a number of reasons.
One key reason why we decided to test different tyre pressure systems and offer them to our customers was because one of our sales team had low profile tyres fitted to his car (tyre size:234/40ZR18 Continental Sport Contact 3). He recently had a slow puncture. As he pointed out it was not easy to see that the tyre was underinflated. The result was that the tyre side wall had been damaged and the whole tyre had to be replaced. This would have been ok if the tyre had been used for 10,000 miles but unfortunately he had only drive 1,500 miles on it !
Tyres are undoubtedly the most critical safety component on a vehicle, yet most drivers ignore them and assume all is well unless they appear flat – at which point it is too late!
The vital area of grip where rubber meets road affects a vehicle’s handling, steering, stability, traction and braking. Tyre failure, particularly at speed, can have serious consequences.
The NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) in the USA estimates that the installation of tyre pressure monitoring systems, warning drivers of underinflated tyres, could prevent as many as 79 deaths and 10,365 injuries each year in the US alone.
The best tread designs and the most expensive tyres are nothing without the air that carries them along. Checking tyre pressure is a small investment in time compared to the costs of excessive tyre wear and fuel consumption caused by improper inflation.
