What is PCD?


PCD stands for "Pitch Circle Diameter" and is the diameter of a circle drawn through the centre of your wheel bolt holes or studs.  PCD is normally measured in millimeters and also indicates the number of studs or bolts used on the wheel.



What does 'Offset' mean?


Offset is the distance between the hub mounting face at the back of the wheel and the wheel's centre line.

Offset is usually stamped or engraved into the wheel and is measured in millimetres of 'ET' [ET is the short form of the German word 'Einpresstiefe' which literally translates as 'insertion depth'.

Positive Offset wheels have their mounting face toward the front face of the wheel. Most front wheel drive vehicles have positive ET wheels. 
Zero Offset wheels have their mounting face even with the centerline of the wheel and are by definition "ET 0".

Negative Offset wheels have their mounting face toward the rear of the wheel - powerful rear-wheel drive cars often have wheels with negative offset.
