^ listen to this guy... he knows




and by the way, lugs are measured differently for different configurations. with 8 lugs, you measure center to center across two opposing lugs.
on five lug wheels, you measure from the center on one lug to the OUTER edge of a lug not next to it.
for example, if you number the lugs in order as they go around...1, 2, 3, 4, 5. the center of 1 would be measured to the outer edge or either 3 or 4. follow?

Click the image to open in full size.
