Dodge Ram Van 2500 Bolt Pattern Cross Reference and Wheel Sizes
You likely know that most rims are none car specific. In other words, we can change them from Ram Van 2500 to another car and vice versa. But not all rims are a bolt-on fitment for your Ram Van 2500 studs. If you want to be sure about fitment, consider a number of important factors. The most significant thing that you should do is compare your Ram Van 2500 bolt pattern with the one on the wheel that you want to buy. Sometimes, you may have to know the stud or bolt pattern information to come up with the best solution. Select the make, model, and the year of your vehicle to get the information about the bolt pattern.
Wheel bolt is the diameter of an imaginary circle that the centers of the wheel lugs or bolt holes form. Sometimes, you'll find people referring to it as bolt circle, lug pattern, or lug circle. There are a few other names as well though. Remember that a wheel bolt of 5 by 4.5 refers to a 5 bolt pattern with a diameter of 4.5 inches. How to change bolt pattern? Use Adapters (Amazon link).
How bolt pattern is measured
Measure center-to-center on lugs across each other if you've got an even number of lugs. However, don’t do that if there are an odd number of lugs. Measure the size of the diameter from the center of one lug to the outer edge of the hole. You’ll most likely get the best result if you do this diagonally across the hole.
Check the Bolt Pattern Torque Specifications
Install your alloy wheels using a torque wrench. And also consult your owner’s manual for accurate specifications.
After a test drive, you need to recheck the torque specifications. This way, you’ll successfully mitigate the risk to torque your lug nuts or bolts falsely. The vibrations and rigors of driving can easily loosen the bolt or nut and cause you lots of avoidable problems. Re-torque your wheel lugs after driving the first 50-to-100 miles whenever you’re installing your new wheels.
What’s the Right Wheel Dimension
4 important measurements will help you to get the ideal wheel size. Find them here:
Dodge Ram Van 2500 Rim diameter
Look at the area where your tire beads seat. Measures the actual diameter of your wheel that rests at that particular point.
Gauges the length of the distance that spans from the inside of the outer lip at the bead that seat on the inner lip to find the rim width. Change Wheel Offset by using Wheel Spacers (Amazon link).
Measures the distance from the inside of your wheel at the region where it contacts the essential parts like the axle flange, the brake, and the hub to the inside edge of the wheel.
Dodge Ram Van 2500 Bolt Pattern
Measures the diameter of an imaginary circle that the wheel lugs or bolt holes create. How to change lug pattern? Use Adapters(Amazon link).
What is this? The distance that ranges from the wheel’s mounting surface to the actual centerline of the rim is what people call the wheel offset. If you want a positive offset, all you need to do is to position the mounting surface of the wheel in front of your rim or tire assembly’s actual center line. In effect, you’ll see the tire come into the fender well more.
A negative offset, on the other hand, will bring your tire to stick out away from the car. This occurs when the mounting surface gets positioned behind the actual centerline of your tire assembly or the rim. Change wheel offset by using Wheel Spacers (Amazon link).
What’s the significance of the hub center bore?
This particular bore directly relates to the center holes in your car’s wheels that center the wheel on the vehicle. Most wheels on the auto market have large center bores to make them compatible with almost any type of vehicle. That’s the reason you may need a hub ring. Your car may require a smaller center bore, and there’s no better solution than this. These hard plastic or metal rings will help you to perfectly center your wheels on the hubs and eliminate cases of run outs. How to fit rims with larger centre bore? Use Hub Centric Rings(Amazon link).
Here are vital factors that you need to consider:
Lug Nuts Size (Amazon link). Measures your thread diameter, your thread length, and your thread pitch. Record the diameter of your thread, the first digit, in millimeters.
Rim Size Range
Gauges the allowable limits of your wheels diameter as well as the width that matches a specific vehicle to find the appropriate rim size range. Try Hubcaps (Amazon link) to change the look of your wheels.
Custom Rim Size Range
It’s the perfect source of information on both the lower and upper limits of the rims your particular car is able to incorporate in contrast to the specifications that the manufacturer has provided. We’re here, prepared and ready to help you choose the right aftermarket wheels (Amazon link) if you aren’t happy with your stock wheels.
Considers all the possible options of the tire size that may perfectly fit into your Dodge Ram Van 2500.
Tire Pressure importance
A digital tire pressure gauge (Amazon link) is a must-have tool for checking the tire pressure and keeping it within a permissible range. You can quickly measure the pressure once the visual examination of the wheel evoked a shade of doubt. Still don't have one? Review the best digital tire pressure gauges forming a perfect seal with the valve stem without leaking air, even at night times. Find a perfect combination by choosing the right car air compressor to regulate the pressure in deflated or over-inflated tires.
