How to measure the bolt pattern on a 5 lug wheel

From choosing a spare tire, to just adding to your extensive general knowledge, here’s how to measure the bolt pattern on a 5 bolt wheel.

A bolt pattern is simply the diameter of the bolt circle. For wheels with 4 or 6 lugs, this is fairly simple – but with an odd number of 5 lugs, how do you measure?

Measure the bolt pattern from the back of one lug to the center of one of the lugs on the other side (not the one right next to it!)
