Five-lug patterns, particularly the 5×120 ones, have always been lauded as the most popular bolt patterns, surpassing four- or six-lug by a long mile.

There is more to discover in vehicles with 5×120 bolt patterns than one would think – and that’s what my guide is for.  Scroll to learn more!

What Is The Bolt Pattern 5×120?

5×120 or 5×4.72 indicates the car’s wheel bolts/studs and the exact diameter of imaginary circles passing through those studs’ true center bore. Specifically, “5” equates to five studs/ bolts, positioned in circular patterns of 120 millimeters (4.72 inches) in diameter.

Bolt patterns are a critical criterion in buying perfect wheels. As these five bolts and wheel studs align closely with the hub’s corresponding holes, they ensure proper force distribution and mounting to give you full-force control on any terrain or road surface. 

Failure to purchase rim wheels that match the car’s 5×120 patterns is an invitation to road mishaps, collisions, and accidents.

Can 5×120 Wheels Fit 5×114 Bolt Patterns or Vice Versa? 

Change Bolt Patterns to 5×120

Yes, changing from a 5×114 to a 5×120 pattern is not entirely impossible if you use wheel adapters. They are spacers with different side bolt patterns, allowing drivers to mount a mismatched selection of wheels onto the vehicles.

However, that should only be your last resort. Experts never recommend purchasing cross wheel adapter kits, as they might throw the car off balance and, in turn, damage its stability and handling. 

The best bet is to place the shopping wheels exactly where they are meant to be: 5×120 wheels on 5×120 hubs and 5×114 on 5×114. Only then can optimal performance and fit be guaranteed. 

Can You Make 5×120 Fit 5×112 and Vice Versa?

Yes, with the help of wheel adapters, you can fit a 5×120 wheel into a 5×112. Otherwise, the wheels might come loose on the road. And you should only do it when there are no other choices. 

Manufacturers have designed your car that way for a reason, and trying to mess up the pattern without expertise will do you more harm than good. 

How to Change Your Bolt Patterns to 5×120? 

Changing bolt patterns is not always the greatest idea. But if you still decide to go through with it, here are the steps to take.

Note: Remember, the following guides are for drivers who wish to change their five-lug patterns to six-lug holes. Simply repeat the steps twice or thrice if you want to upgrade it to seven- or eight-lug.

Step 1. Scour through the market to see whether adapters for your desired patterns (ex: 6×114) are available. Not every lug pattern can be changed into, after all – which is why this step is important.

Step 2. Identify the wheel lugs to loosen them. Next, lift your car with a jack and place it onto the stands. Now remove the nuts completely, pull out the lug wheels, and set them aside. 

Step 3. Put your wheel adapter on the hub, then install the bolt circles enclosed with this adapter. Use a wrench to tighten the nuts to about 95 lb-ft; ensure the studs near the tire sidewalls don’t stick past your adapter.

Step 4. Place your new wheels onto the adapter’s studs, then tighten the nuts with a wrench to 95 lb-ft. Lower your car to the stand and slowly onto the ground using the floor jacks.


The 5×120 wheel bolt pattern is especially common in luxurious, reputed car brands; the chart above hopefully gives you an insightful glimpse into some well-recognized models. 

Changing the pattern is possible (though not recommended) if you stick closely to our given guides. If any common question about tire size/ bolt pattern diameters is not yet covered in this article, contact me for more help.
