Default SX4 bolt pattern?

Hi everyone, this is my 1st post on the forums.

I have a good friend that is purchasing a SX4 JX model with front wheel drive (comes with 16" alloy wheels with 205/60R16 tires). She would like to get winter tires & steel rims on them since its starting to snow in Toronto, Canada. However, we're not sure what the bolt pattern is, can anyone help us?

Anyway, I did quite a lot of research on this vehicle & it seems to be a great car in terms of value, safety, quality and amenities. We chose the car over other vehicles such as the Toyota Matrix/Pontiac Vibe, Mazda 3 and the Nissan Versa.

I just went through the same problem. Because its a new car, the tire shop I've dealt with for the last couple sets (Steelcase Tires in Markham) wasn't even sure the rim pattern, and they usually can name a bolt pattern and tire size off the top of their heads.

Their suggestion was to leave the car with them so that they could do a test fit on the rims to make sure that nothing rubbed or anything along that line.. I *believe* the pattern was 5x5 1/2, but I don't remember off the top of my head...

The SX4 bolt pattern should be 5x4.5" (5x114.3mm)..

Cheers,

Tim

Thanks for the help/suggestions guys. I use to work at Performance Improvements for several years so I can also name bolt patterns fairly quickly, however as you said, the car is brand new so there's no literature on it yet.

It's possible to measure the bolt pattern with the wheel off, but that's sort of a hassle. I'll tell my friend to test fit a 5x4.5" wheel at the shop where she gets them. Thanks again!

How wide? I'm guessing 6.5" on a tall 205 like this...

Sorry to hijack this thread but I'm curious about something related.

I, too would get a set of dedicated wheels and tires for snow. But, I was looking on TIRERACK and it said that this car has low air sensors in the wheels and it would be an extra $500 for the second set to have them installed.

Is this true, that there is an electronic air pressure sensing thing on this car? I didn't see any mention of it in the suzuki website.

Also, what would happen if you used wheels without them? Would there be a constant light on the dash or something?

Where are you located supersnootz ? I can tell you that none of the Canadian models have the tire sensors and I assume that for the US at least the models with that traction control (TCS/ESP) have it, not sure about the other trims.
