Discount Tire Steel Wheels which ones? 41B vs 4.541B?

Hi all.

I'm getting ready to pull the trigger for some steelies from Discount tire for my winter tires but I'm not sure what to do. I want to buy some Unique 83s but they list 2 different ones that fit my 2013 SE.

They have http://www.discounttiredirect.com/di...6.5&vid=023160 for $62. It says they are 16X6.5 5-4.25 41B

They also have http://www.discounttiredirect.com/di...6.5&vid=023160 for $65 each. It says those are 16X6.5 5-4.25/4.5 41B

It looks like the only difference is the ending number where the cheaper one is 41B and the one thats a few dollars more is added 4.5 to the 4.25 41B. Not sure what the difference is and don't mind spending an extra $12 total if the 4.5 41B are a better fit than the 41B but I just don't want to make a mistake. Could someone that knows how this stuff works take a look at the pages and let me know what I need?

Thank you so much in advance!
-Justin

I believe the difference is the 5-4.25/4.5 means they are double drilled to fit two different bolt patterns.

Because I'm mounting Altimax Arctic tires on them with their own TPMS sensors for my winter wheels. Why pay for alloys that'll get all shitted up in upstate NY winters? Lol

Ah that makes perfect sense...I figured there had to be some sort of logic behind it. Cool! Thanks.

This would be the general case, although they are showing the same wheel in both pictures.

The dual drilled pitch circles are only necessary if you want to mount it on two different vehicles with different bolt patterns. It actually makes it cheaper to make one wheel and sell it to more types of car.
