    Hi Bottlefed, I have OEM wheels and they measure 70mm between the adjacent holes and 114mm between centres of holes across to the other side, not sure what that is in pcd .It is the same as a BMW 1988 750 e32 just checked it in the driveway, if you need other measurements just ask, here is the off set front says 11.75mm rear is 20mm centre hub hole is 70mm at face.

    hi Lamboillinois, I always wondered how do they arrive at a figure of 120mm I have the wheels in front of me and nothing measures 120mm just found this definition of pcd Pitch Circle Diameter (PCD)

    Pitch Circle Diameter (PCD)
    The P.C.D. can be defined as the diameter (in millimetres)
    of an imaginary circle drawn through the centre of the stud
    holes on the wheel and/or the vehicle wheel hub.
    But what i'm measuring is the pcd and its definitely 114 across in a circle.
    I have heard for years the Countach wheels were 120mm, but when I got mine they measure 114.and they are genuine OZ from an 87 Countach.
    But the internet is full of mis quoted figures. so I will go with what's in my hot little hands, it just leaves me somewhat confused because I have also heard of BMW being 120 also and the Original Countach used BMW 7 series hubs. and the E32 in the driveway definitely measures 114. as does the 1996 e38 750

    You must be measuring wrong

    BMW is very certainly 5x120 so its the way you are measuring which is incorrect

    If the BMW and countach rims both is 114 according to your measurement you can be confident the actual spec is 5x120

    he must not be measuring through the centerline of the stud to the center of the bolt pattern.

    When measuring a 5 bolt pattern you cannot measure from one hole to another. You have to measure from one hole to a spot directly opposite it that is actually half way between the two holes on the other side. Your 114 is probably actually 120.

    Isn't Chevrolet also 5X120? I have the OEM Hercules wheels and they bolt right on to my S-10 hubs.

    chevy is 120.7mm or 5x4.75" which will still fit 5x120. my car has 5x115mm hubs on the rear but I run 5x114.3 (5x4.5") wheels.
