FITTING & FINISHING INFORMATION 

WHAT FITTINGS DO I NEED?

Bolts, studs and nuts. Don’t panic over this! We are here to help you through this, just tell us your vehicle and we will make sure the suitable fittings are included free of charge!

 

SSP ALLOY WHEELS DESERVE LOVE

Be sure to keep them clean with a nonabrasive cleaner, and keep them protected from the elements with a product like RIMWAX, this is particularly important for our chrome and polished wheels.

 

SECURITY

 The last thing you want is your new SSP Alloy wheels going walkies. We strongly recommend locking wheel nuts or bolts, to keep your new investment bolted to your pride and joy.

 

*All wheels have a 2 year structural warranty, painted wheels carry a 2 year warranty on finish, chrome wheels have a 1 year warranty on finish, and polished wheels will require regular polishing to maintain the finish. 

PCD & OFFSET - WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT? 

PCD (PITCH CIRCLE DIAMETER)

Basically, how many wheel bolts does your vehicle have on one wheel?

 

That's it! So if you have 4 'studs' how far apart are they on an imaginary circle - This is the diameter bit. Check out the diagram to find out how to measure it.

 

ET OR OFFSET

 This determines how far your wheels tuck in or stick out in relation to the vehicle and its bodywork.

 

This is due to the position of the mounting face within the wheel. The lower the number, the further the wheel sticks out, this is really important on Karmann Ghias for example as they have very narrow wheel arches.

 

Have a look at the illustration (right) to get to grips with offset.
