Compatibility is one of the most common causes for concern among our customers... which is normal giving the technical complexity and the specific terminology. Let's take a moment to shed some light on it all.
How Complicated Is It?
Honestly, it's not that complicated... and to facilitate the process, you can use our vehicle selector! Simply enter the required information on your vehicle; with this data, a selection is made through our huge products catalog to show you only the wheels that fit your vehicle. Then, all you have to do is to pick the style and color that you prefer!
Wheel and Tire Brands
Tires of any brand can be mounted on wheels of any other brand. The brand of the two products has nothing to do with the fitment. Only the size specs have to fit together to allow the tire to properly sit on the wheel. So don't worry, have fun and choose what you like the most.
Double Checked by an Expert
Even if the database of our vehicle selector is reliable and always selects only the wheels that are technically compatible with your vehicle, one of our experts ALWAYS double checks your order and validate it with the manufacturers. In doing so, we can guarantee that the wheels you'll be delivered will fit.
In fact, it's 100% guaranteed!
Interested by Technical Information?
Are you one of those who like to learn more? Here is a little lexicon to help you understand the numbers shown beside the products when you are shopping on our website.
The size of the wheel (in inches) measured across its center.
This is the first thing you have to think about when shopping for wheels... You can choose to go larger or smaller than your original equipment. If you do, you will have to change your tires too, to keep the same total diameter. It has to stay the same for your odometer to show the right number of kilometers: 1 spin has to roll the exact same distance.
Although most people change the size of their wheels for the look, some choose to downsize to save money: the price of the wheels (and tires) is usually directly related to their size: the bigger, the more expensive and vice versa.
The size (in inches) of the wheel measured across its barrel, from the front rim to the rear rim.
Most of the wheels we recommend for you will be wider than your original equipment. As long as they do not come out of the fender of your vehicle and do not touch any mechanical parts (brakes, suspension, etc.), there is no problem. The offset of the wheel has to be adjusted to balance this modification.
The distance (in millimeters) between the portion of the core of the wheel and the line in the center of the wheel.
On this illustration, the vehicle would be on the left side of the wheel.
The offset indicates if the mounting part of the wheel (where the bolts or nuts are installed) is located in the middle of the wheel (Zero Offset), more on its exterior side (Positive Offset) or interior side (Negative Offset).
Wheels that are considered "concave", the ones with a large negative deport, are mostly on tuning cars or on trucks with lifted suspension because it leaves more room for the brakes and the suspension.
Bolt Pattern or Bolt Circle
The arrangement of the lug holes, represented by their number x the distance between them across the center of the wheel, for example 5x114.3.
The bolt pattern is specific to a vehicle and can't be changed. It has to be the exact same pattern on the wheel. However, some wheels are universal and can be installed on various bolt patterns and vehicles.
Wheel Hub and Center Bore
The size (in millimeters) of the machined opening located in the center of the wheel.
The hub is the center bore, the machined hole right in the middle of the wheel, where we fit the vehicle axle.
The size of the axle is specific to the vehicle and can't be changed. Some wheels are replicas, which means they fit perfectly on the axle. Others are universal, with a larger opening to suit a greater number of vehicles. With those wheels, we recommend installing a centering ring, a simple plastic ring, to adjust the fit, allowing the wheel to sit properly on the axle of the vehicle. This might look minor but it can avoid inconveniences such as strong vibrations in the vehicle and in the steering wheel, the wheel not being properly centered around the axle.
