Determining the Bolt Pattern

The first number in the bolt pattern is the number of bolt holes. The second number denotes the diameter, in inches, of the circle on which the bolt holes sit.

Bolt Pattern - Odd

To determine the bolt-circle diameter on wheels with an odd number of bolt holes, measure from the center of any bolt hole to the point halfway between the two bolt holes directly across from the first. (Example: "5 on 4-1/2" means 5 bolt holes with 4-1/2" measured to a point halfway between the opposite bolt holes.)

Bolt Pattern - Even

On wheels with an even number of bolt holes, measure from the center of one bolt hole to the center of the hole directly across from it. (Example: "8 on 6-1/2" means 8 bolt holes with 6-1/2" from the center of one hole to the center of another on the opposite side.)

Bolt Pattern - Side

Measuring the distance from the center of one bolt hole on the wheel to the center of a bolt hole right next to it can also help to determine the bolt pattern.

  • If D = 2-5/8", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-1/2"
  • If D = 2-3/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-3/4"
  • If D = 3", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5"
  • If D = 3-1/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5-1/2"

Video Transcript for Americana Tires and Wheels - Wheel Only - AM20028 Review

Today we're going to review part number AM20028. This is the Americana Steel Trailer Wheel. This is an 8 inch by 7 inch rim size with a 5 on 4 1/5 inch bolt pattern and has a galvanized finish. This wheel is made of a sturdy steel construction. The galvanized finish as you can see is all the way around on the wheel, front and back, that will provide superior protection from any rust and corrosion. This is a high quality wheel which will meet the DOT specifications.

The rim size on this an 8 inch diameter by 7 inches wide. Basically, if you go to measurement, the diameter which should be measured this way is not edge to edge but actually where the tire bead would sit. When the tire goes in here, it sits right in here, the beads of the tire do so you measure inside to inside. That should give you your 8 inch reading. As you can see 8 inches in diameter. The width of the wheel, the same way.

You wouldn't want to measure end to end. It's where the tire bead would sit so here to here. If we put a ruler on that, would be 7 inches wide. The bolt pattern on this wheel is a 5 on 4 1/5 inch bolt pattern. Basically, what that measurement means is there's five lugs as you can see, one, two, three four, five.

The 4 1/2 inches means that the distance, if you drew a circle, if you took the center of each lug hole, drew a circle through those center point of those lug holes, measure the diameter of that circle, it would be 4 1/2 inches. Basically, on a wheel that is an odd number of lugs, what you'd have to do is pick one, measure from the center, directly across to any of the lug directly across from it and I'll show you how to do that. It's pretty tight here. If you measure from the center all the way to the outer edge of that hole, it would be 4 1/2 inches. This would be 5 on 4 1/2 inch bolt pattern. This wheel will fit on a wheel bolt size of a half inch by 20.

The pilot diameter which is the large hole right here in the middle, this is what will fit over the hub on your trailer. The diameter of that would be 2.8 inches and the capacity on this wheel is 900 pounds. That should do it for the review of part number Am20028, the Americana Steel Trailer Wheel, 8 inch by 7 inch rim size with a 5 on 4 1/5 inch bolt pattern with a galvanized finish. .

I recently ordered tires, went to put them on and the old rims were bad in a few spots. Called etrailers up to see about returning them and ordering rims/tires. I talked to Kayla, she helped price out options/ returns compared to just ordering the rims. Within a few minutes we agreed easier to just order the new rims. Im very pleased with all my experiences with etrailer, the customer service was awesome; definitely will keep ordering through them. 485637

Ask the Experts about this Americana Tires and Wheels

Do you have a question about this Tires and Wheel?


  • Will an 8 Inch Trailer Wheel Fit etrailer 3.5K Hub # AKIHUB-545-35-K
  • Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-545-35-K was designed to work with 13" to 17-1/2" wheels so it is not a good option for 8 inch trailer wheel # AM20028. We have a lot of hubs that fit 8 inch wheels and have a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern but they use different bearings than # AKIHUB-545-35-K. If you can tell me the inner and outer bearing numbers of the hub you are replacing then I can figure out which hubs and compatible wheels will work for you. If you do not have the bearings available...

  • 15 inch Wheel with ST205-75D15 Tire Recommendation
  • The Taskmaster Wheel and Tire part # TTWAS15B45SM should work well for you as it has a rim with a 15 inch diameter and has a tire that is sized ST205-75D15. It also has a capacity of 1,820 lbs at 50 psi per wheel/tire so it would have plenty of capacity for your setup.

  • 8 Inch Trailer Wheel to Fit 18.5 x 8.5-8 Sized Tire on a 2,000 Pound Axle
  • I looked for a previous order from you but I wasn't able to find one. I think I can still help you though. Your 18.5 x 8.5-8 sized tires fit a 8 by 7 inch rim. And since you have brake drums on your 2,000 pound axles they're likely a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern. We have 3 options that fit the criteria in different finishes: Galvanized, part # AM20028 White paint, part # AM20026 Silver paint, part # AM20027 If you can tell me why the rims you find don't fit over your hubs,...

  • Backspacing of the Americana Steel Trailer Wheel
  • On a wheel like the part # AM20028 that has a zero offset it is easy to determine the backspacing. This rim is 7 inches wide so you would need to add 1 inch for the inboard and outboard flanges and then divide by two to determine the backspacing. So this rim has backspacing of 4 inches.

  • Fitment of Tire Size 16 x 6.5-8 on a 8-7 Inch Rim
  • I can help you find the right rim for your 16 X 6.5-8 tire. According to our tire chart your tire 16.5 x 6.5 - 8 tires, also known as tire size 165/65-8, will have a rim width of 5-3/8 inch, a load range of C and a max capacity of 800 lbs at 70 psi. The Americana # AM20018 you also looked at will be great fit for your tire. The Americana # AM20028 8 inch x 7 inch rim you mentioned will not be a fit for your tire. The 8-7 inch rim # AM20028 you were looking at will not be able...

  • How to Determine Trailer Wheel Bolt Pattern
  • I attached a link that details how to determine bolt pattern on a wheel or hub to the right for you to check out. But based on the measurement you took it sounds like you most likely have a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern since that is the most popular wheel bolt pattern. You can verify this by measuring from the center of one bolt hole to the one adjacent to it, if it measures 2-5/8 inches it's a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern.

  • Recommendation For Golf Cart Rims For 18.5x8.5-8 Tires
  • Based on your information, it sounds like you have a 7 inch rim with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. For rims, I recommend the Americana Steel Trailer Wheel, Item # AM20028, that you reference. It is a solid center wheel with a nice galvanized finish and a weight capacity of 1,165-lbs. If you would be interested in a tire and wheel combo, I recommend the Kenda 215/60-8, Item # AM3H323, which is the same size and capacity. Tire sizing has changed so the older size of 18.5x8.5-8 is now 215/60-8...

  • Galvanized Trailer Wheel Recommendation for Use with Loadstar K399 Bias Trailer Tire 215/60-8
  • We have a galvanized wheel part # AM20028 that will work great with the Loadstar K399 Bias Trailer Tire # AM1HP28 that you referenced but we do not have this pre-mounted. Best option is to take the tire and wheel to a shop near you who can mount them for you.
