Bolt Pattern Pro Receives Patent Approval for Innovation in Wheel & Rim Measurement

Bolt Pattern Pro

Mukwonago, WI (PRWEB) October 17, 2012

The award winning Bolt Pattern Pro has received US patent approval, turning the cumbersome chore of wheel and rim sizing into a simple two step task. Proper fitment is not an option for anyone buying or selling wheels or rims, it’s a necessity. Predecessor tools and methods have proved to be at their best, cumbersome or complicated, and at their worst, inaccurate. The Bolt Pattern Pro has addressed the most common obstacles to obtaining a precise measurement.

Offered exclusively by, a leading innovator in automotive fastener tools, the Bolt Pattern Pro is an easy to use three piece set. First, one must select the appropriate gauge for their vehicle – the four, five, or six lug tool. Second, align the cross hairs on the clear transparent gauge with two of the wheel’s lug nuts to obtain an exact bolt pattern measurement. The three gauges account for 29 of the most common bolt patterns.

Unlike other bolt pattern gauges, the Bolt Pattern Pro is designed to go around the hub. An exact measurement can be taken without having to remove the hub, saving time and unnecessary hassle. Five lug wheel bolt patterns generally require multiplication and the assistance of a calculator to derive a correct measurement, not so with the Bolt Pattern Pro’s unique design. Furthermore, half the wheels on the market are metric, to which this is addressed by the inclusion of a laminated inch to metric conversion chart.

“Do you have rims that will fit my car?” Wheel and tire dealers, auto repair shops, auto parts stores, car dealerships, and junk or salvage yards address this question countless times every day. To date their options have included the use of inadequate tools as referenced above and/or trusting a reference manual or online search. Rather than waste valuable time searching for this information hoping what’s found is indeed correct, the Bolt Pattern Pro can quickly ensure an exact measurement without the need to trust third party information.

“With the patent approval now behind us and the product’s official launch upon us, I believe our new gauge will promptly replace any other tools or methods used to measure the bolt pattern of a vehicle’s wheels. Anyone relying solely on a reference manual should have the Bolt Pattern Pro on hand to confirm their findings. Proper fitment shouldn’t be guesswork,” said John Winkler, founder and president of

Proudly made in the USA, stands firmly behind its product with a 30 day money back guarantee and one year warranty. “With the customer feedback we’ve received during our soft launch in the patent pending stage, we feel confident that the Bolt Pattern Pro will meet or exceed our customer’s expectations," said Winkler. Not only does the Bolt Pattern Pro have the approval of its customers, but it is also a SEMA “Best New Product of the Year” award winner for the Wheel & Related Product category.
