The PCD on the esteem is 114.3. Not too many other cars have this PCD except the Zen and the 800.

esteem has 114 pcd.

you would find it difficlut to find alloys if you are upsizing.

preferably go for multipcd alloys

What does PCD mean?

PCD stands for (pitch circle diameter), this is the diameter of a circle drawn through the center of your wheel's bolt holes. PCD is measured in millimetres and also indicates the number of studs or bolts the wheel will have. The most common fitment has 4 studs with a PCD of 100mm, hence the fitment 4x100.

4-Stud PCD



5-Stud PCD

when i looked for my esteem, i found it difficult....
you do get multi pcd in abundance..in limited models
you do not have a vast range to choose from. also single pcd is difficult
