Jeep Gladiator Bolt Pattern Guide

Short Answer

Unlike other Jeep vehicles, all Jeep Gladiator models have the same bolt pattern, regardless of their configuration: 5×127 (or 5×5 in inches).

The Gladiator is one of the new additions to the Jeep line-up.

Released in 2019, it marks the Jeep’s return to the pick-up truck market – as they’d stopped making those after discontinuing the Comanche series in 1992.

Although based on the same platform as the Wrangler, the Jeep Gladiator has some key features that make it different, such as a cargo truck, a longer wheelbase, more passenger seats, and a higher towing capacity.

Still, Wrangler takes a slim lead when it comes to off-roading.

But you can do some modifications to overcome this deficit, such as upgrading to aftermarket wheels and tires.

The first advantage of these wheels is extra ground clearance.

While Jeep Gladiator has a decent ground clearance of 10 inches by default (some trim levels can give you up to 11.1 inches), you can increase it further by adding bigger tires.

In addition to this, these wheels can also improve the handling and maneuverability of the Jeep Gladiator, which can come in handy during off-roading.

But you can’t just put any wheel in your vehicle willy-nilly. You should check its backspacing, offset, and bolt pattern to ensure it’s compatible with your car or truck.

In this post, we’ll talk about the bolt pattern of the Jeep Gladiator.

Jeep Gladiator Bolt Pattern

The Jeep Gladiator comes with a 5×5 bolt pattern. It means there are five lug holes in its wheels, and the diameter of the circle formed by these holes is 5 inches (or 127 mm).

How Can I Measure the Bolt Pattern?

How to Measure A Bolt Pattern?

To find the bolt pattern, you first need to find out the number of lug holes in a wheel – as it’s the first part of the bolt pattern.

Jeep Gladiator, like other Jeep vehicles, has five lug holes in its wheels. Therefore, it has a 5-lug bolt pattern.

Next, we’ll find the diameter of the circle formed by those five lug holes.

For this, we’ll need to calculate the distance from the center of one lug hole to the back edge of the opposite lug hole.


Because if you see those lug holes closely, you’ll notice that the distance between the opposite lug holes can’t be classified as the ‘diameter’ – since the line is not passing through the center of that imaginary circle.

Therefore, to compensate for this, the diameter for a 5-lug pattern is calculated from the center of one lug hole to the back edge of the opposite lug hole.

This distance will be 5 inches in Jeep Gladiator wheels and will give you the second part of the bolt pattern.

So, the overall pattern will be 5×5 inches (or 5×127 mm).
