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 Dexstar Tires and Wheels - Wheel Only - AM20312 Review

Today, we're going to review part number AM20312. This is the Dexstar 14 inch x 5-1/2 inch vintage steel trailer wheel with the 1/2 inch positive offset. Also, has the 4 on 9.44 inch bolt pattern and silver sparkle in color. Now, this wheel is a vintage wheel. It's also called the 494 wheel because of its bolt pattern or the star design because the opening here looks like a star pattern. It's made of a sturdy steel construction, has a silver sparkle powder coat finish over an e-coat primer. This will provide excellent corrosion resistance, and when I say silver sparkle, what is nice about it is its silver paint, and in the paint, those have a sparkle to it.

Very nice finish. The star pattern right here creates that vintage look. Now, this wheel does have a positive offset, which means it ensures that the wheel is positioned closer to the trailer frame. It is a high quality wheel that meets the Department of Transportation specifications. Now, few dimensions on this. This is a 14 inch diameter x 5-1/2 inches wide. Now, when you go to measure that, you're going to be actually be measuring where the tire would seat on the wheel.

Basically, when you mount a tire, the beads of the tire would seat right in here, so you're going to measure bead seat to bead seat across, so inside to inside. If we put a ruler on it, you can see it's 14 inches in diameter, and then for the width, we're going to do the same way, inside to inside, bead seat to bead seat. You'll see that it's 5-1/2 inches wide. Now, the bolt pattern on this wheel is a 4 on 9.44 inch bolt pattern. Basically, what that saying is if you need to measure that what you do is there's four holes here. If you pick one hole, you would measure from the center of that, go directly to one across from it and measure to that center or you can pick this one and go across, so either way.

We're going to go center to center this way. You'll be able to see, measures out about 9.44 inches, so 4 lug 9.44 inches. Does use the wheel lug size of 1/2 inch x 20. Does have a load capacity of 1860 pounds, and I did mention this does have a 1/2 inch positive offset. Basically, what that means is most trailer wheels nowadays where this would mount to your trailer, this surface right here would be in line with the center line of the wheel. That would be a zero offset.

Most trailers now use the zero offset. This being a vintage wheel, some of the older trailers would need more clearance underneath around the axle, so this wheel actually has a 1/2 inch positive meeting this mounting surface. Instead of being right at zero, we'll move a 1/2 inch positive which is to the outside of the wheel, and when it does that, it will move this wheel entire closer to the trailer frame, but that should do it for the review on part number AM20312, the Dexstar 14 inch x 5-1/2 inch vintage steel trailer wheel with the positive 1/2 inch offset and the 4 on 9.44 inch bolt pattern. .

This was a lifesaver for us. We have a vintage camper that didn't have a spare. The rim was very hard to find but etrailer had one! And it fits perfectly. We were worried there would be trouble since the axel has a star pattern on it. But it works! So happy. Shipping was super fast too! Just wish it wasn't so expensive. 429864

Our original trailer that we copied had over 250,000 towing miles on it ,at least 10,000 with extention alowing a 1961 &62 mini & Sprite Ashley race cars to be towed togeather ( they almost kiss ) Even after blasting & rewelding wheels several year's ago and building new trailer I was still conserned. We had a flat coming back from PVGP and the rims just scared us. So thankfully Etrailer had new ones ( we had been told such were not avalabul many times at other suppliers ) Even at [this price] each they were a good deal ,just for peace of mind .

I just wanted to write and say thank you to etrailer. There is no way I would have found a spare wheel for my 1982 Play-Mor without etrailer. The star shaped 4 on 9.44 is pretty much impossible to find locally. The shipping was incredibly fast. I think I got in within 2 days!! Thanks again guys 158213

The wheel is exactly what we needed and came with perfect paint finish. I had tried to get this locally but no one could help. I found your website and was pleased to find the tire rim after a short search through your online catalog. It was of further support to find a video with complete audio description of the features. That enabled me to order with confidence. The delivery was made then in a day or two by USPS. Thanks for your service and feedback via email of the same day shipping. 155683

Thank you for sending a very hard to find older type boat trailer rim. It fit perfect and had a quality paint job. I ended up not buying the boat but it was comforting knowing I had a spare in the event I had towed it hundreds of miles back home. I am still looking for a similar boat that uses the same wheel so will probably end up keeping it. 125170

  • Replacement Tires for Old Travel Trailer Tires G78-15
  • Yes, the Contender Radial Tires, # C20851D, will be a good replacement for your G78-15 tires. The G78-15 tires have an overall diameter of 27.1" and the 205/75/15 have a diameter of 27.13". Your clearance of just 2" is concerning. Typically we recommend no less than 4.5" between the tire tread and the wheel well for bump clearance on trailers with leaf spring suspension. It is fine to change the size of your travel trailer tires as long as the tires you select are rated high enough...

It is possible that the hubs and drums can be replaced on your trailer and then you could use some different wheels.

  • Does Vintage Trailer Wheel # AM20312 Require Balancing
  • Actually trailer rims are not normally balanced. Typically what manufacturers will do is line up the heavy and lights spots on the wheel and tire to somewhat balance it and then leave it at that without issue. There would be no need to install balance weights on the Vintage Trailer Wheel # AM20312.

  • How to Determine Tire and Wheel Size for Spare Trailer Tires and Wheels on a 1973 Winnebago Indian
  • To verify that it is a 14 inch rim that you need, take a look at the tire size on the side wall of one of the tires. If it is a metric size it will be a number like this: ST205/75-14. The last number indicates the wheel size. Another common size on a tire will be numeric: 4.80 x 12B. In this example 12 indicates a 12 inch rim. And it could be Alpha Numeric: B80 x 15D. In this case, 15 indicates a 15 inch rim. In order to measure bolt pattern, there are a couple of ways you can...

  • Availability of 14 inch Trailer Wheel with 4 Bolt Pattern
  • I can't find anything that matches the number you listed, but if the 14 inch wheel you need has the vintange style of 4 bolt pattern where the bolt holes are 9.44 inches apart then the part # AM20312 would be what you would need. Since this is the only 4 bolt style wheel we have that is 14 inch in diameter this would be our best option.

  • Recommended 14 inch Wheels and Radial Tires with 4 on 9.44 Bolt Pattern
  • Increasing from 14 inches to 15 inches isn't really going to gain you anything significantly. Any improvements to the ride or stability will be marginal at best. Sticking with the 14 inch rims the 4 on 9.44 you'll want are the Dexstar Vintage # AM20312. For tires you can go with Taskmaster ST215/75R14 # TTWTRTM2157514D which have a D load range and are 27 inches in diameter and have a section width of 8-1/2 inches. If those tires are too large for your trailer then the better bet...
