Some owners may miss the importance of bolt patterns since these tiny details require little maintenance. However, they play an important role when you mount a wheel to the car.
They determine wheel fitment to ensure safe operation after tire assembly or rim replacement. Newbies may struggle to understand this spec as it includes many different dimensions. If you are new to it, start with wheels with the 5×114.3 bolt pattern – one of the most popular options in today’s market.
In this article:
What Is A 5×4.5 Bolt Pattern?
The 5×4.5 or 5×114.3 wheel bolt pattern means 5 lug holes forming an imaginary circle of 4.5 inches or 114.3 mm in diameter. This diameter is the distance between the center point of one hole to the back of the opposite.
The originator of the 5-lug wheels was Ford in the 1950s. The manufacturer has released this design and many models, such as Ford Mustangs, Fairlane, etc. This feature quickly became an industry trend, which is known as the “small Ford” pattern.
For anyone who does not understand this concept, the bolt pattern often appears in a specific format: the number of wheel studs x the distance between opposite lugs. It is easy to count the first figure, but the second is harder. You must measure from the true center of a random bolt to the outer edge of the furthest one.
So if you find 5 lugs opening and the result shows 4.5 inches, your wheel features a 5×4.5 bolt pattern. Plus, there is another synonym for the 5×4.5 bolt pattern in mm – 5×114.3 wheels.
In fact, these two measurements have the same meaning, and the change of the pitch circle diameter is just the conversion from inches to millimeters.

Installing 5×4.5 Wheels
- Torque wrench
- Safety jack and stands
- Socket set
If you have enough experience, installing a new wheel at home is as easy as a piece of cake. Here is all you need to do:
- Raise your vehicle and secure it with a jack and stands.
- Remove the existing center holes and then the old wheel.
- Install a new wheel in your car. Ensure you have invested in the right brand, model, size, function, etc.
- Screw the lug nuts back into the wheel by half a turn (a new or old set is fine)
- Lower the vehicle and move the supporting tools aside.
- Get a torque wrench to work with those bolts one more time. Remember that you must perform in a star-shaped sequence for the 5-lug pattern. Plus, the torque must equal the factory level recommended in the owner’s manual.
Can You Put 5×120 Wheels On 5×114.3?
Absolutely, YES. Invest in a wheel adapter – covert, and you can easily adjust the bolt pattern.
Does 5×114 Fit 5×114.3?
YES. Both common bolt patterns are the same thing which indicates 5-wheel lugs and a bolt circle of 114.3 millimeters.
The 5×114.3 bolt pattern is very common on passenger cars and SUVs. That’s why it’s important to understand its definition and installation to determine what to do with your wheels. Pay attention to torque specs recommended for your vehicle when you re-torque studs to complete the maintenance process safely.
