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 - AM20730 Review

Today we are going to review part number AM20730. This is the Dexstar 16 1/ 2 inch by 6 3/4 inch steel dual trailer wheel with the positive 5 1/2 inch offset and the 8 on 6 1/2 inch bolt pattern. This wheel is a sturdy steel construction; has a nice gray powder coat finish over an eco primer over the whole wheel, front and back. This will give you excellent corrosion resistance and this wheel does have the high positive offset, which will ensure that the wheels positioned closer to the trailer frame. This is a high quality wheel that meets the department of transportation specifications. This is a hub piloted designed wheel, and by that they mean that this large center hole will center on the axle using the center hub. It will not center off the lug nuts, it will actually center off this large hole in the center.

That is why the bolt holes will not have a chamfer to them, so it does require to use a 5/8 inch flange nut, which we do sell separately, to install this wheel on your trailer. The rim dimension on this is a 16 1/2 inch diameter by 6 3/4 inches wide. If you go to measure, I just want to show you how you measure it. When you measure diameter you won't be measuring edge to edge, you'll be measuring bead seat to bead seat or the inside to inside. Basically when a tire is mounted on this wheel the tire beads would seat here, so the diameter would be bead seat to bead seat. If we put a ruler on there just to give you an idea, you can see it comes up to 16 1/2 inches in diameter and the width you would want to do the same thing.

You will measure bead seat to bead seat, so inside to inside. The width on this wheel is 6 3/4 inches, so the diameter is 16 1/2 inches this way, width is 6 3/4 inches wide. The bolt pattern on this wheel, you can see, is a 8 hole 6 1/2 inch bolt pattern, and the way you will do that on a wheel that has a even number of lugs, like in this case eight, just pick one of the lug holes and you'll be measuring from the center of that hole to the hole directly across from it; center to center. In this case, we'll put center to center, 6 1/2 inches; so 8 holes, 6 1/2 inch hole pattern. The large hole that I mentioned earlier, that this is a hub piloted wheel so the pilot hub diameter on this hole is going to measure right at 4 3/4 inches, so 4.75 inches. As I mentioned also this does use the wheel lug size of a 5/8 inch flange nut. The weight capacity on this wheel is 3100 pounds and again this wheel has a 5 1/2 inch offset, positive.

Basically what that is saying is this mounting surface of this wheel, if you would measure it from the center line of the wheel and it goes out to the face of the wheel which is the positive offset. The measurement from that center line to right here is going to be 5 1/2 inches. That should do it for the review on part number AM20730, the Dexstar 16 1/2 inch by 6 3/4 inch steel dual trailer wheel with the positive 5 1/2 inch offset and the 8 on 6 1/2 bolt pattern. .

The fitment was great, all six of the wheels are a little sharp from the punch so the edges need to be cleaned up with a deburring tool, but the bead is perfect and they worked for the application. 213139

Ask the Experts about this Dexstar Tires and Wheels
Do you have a question about this Tires and Wheel?


  • How is Positive Offset Measured on Dexstar Dual Wheel with Offset # AM20730
  • Wheel offset is always measured from the center line of the rim to the hub face.

A typical application for this component is as a front wheel on a dually truck or RV.

  • Recommended 16.5 Inch Diameter Trailer Wheel with 8 on 6-1/2 Inch Bolt Pattern
  • I do have options for you but we do not offer a 16.5" diameter x 7" wide trailer wheel with a 8 on 6-1/2" bolt pattern. The closest option we have to what you are looking for is the Dexstar Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel part # 17-163-7 for single wheel applications or the Dexstar Dual Wheel with Offset part # AM20730 for dual wheel applications. These wheels both have a 16.5" diameter x 6.75" wide dimension with 8 on 6-1/2" bolt pattern. The dual wheel also has a + 5.5" offset. I have attached...

  • Dually Wheel for a Texas Bragg Trailer with 7.50-16 Tires
  • The 7.50-16 is a light truck tire size sometimes used on trailers. It fits a 16x6 inch wheel. We have several wheels in this size with an 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern but since you have dually wheels you will want # AM20783. I have included a link to a video review of this wheel for you.

  • Bolt Pattern and Pilot Hole Diameter For Dual Tandem Axle Dump Trailer With 16.5 Inch Wheels
  • You will need to check the bolt pattern and the pilot hole. The standard bolt pattern is 8 on 6-1/2 inches. The pilot hole in the middle is often in the 4.75 to 4.78 inches range like you see with the Dexstar Dual Wheel with Offset - 16.5 x 6.75 Rim - 8 on 6.5 # AM20730. Oil bath hubs are not uncommon. Let me know what you have and I'd be happy to check for a compatible option.

  • What Tire Size Fits on the Dexstar Dual Wheel with Offset - 16.5 x 6.75 Rim - 8 on 6.5
  • The Dexstar dual wheel, # AM20730, can accept several tire sizes depending on the diameter and load carrying capacity you need. But, the 2 most common tire sizes for a 16.5 x 6.75 wheel are either an 8.75-16.5 tire or a 9.50-16.5 tire. We do not carry tires in this size but a local tire shop should be able to get you the size you need though it may be a special order item.

  • Trailer Rim Availability that is 16-1/2 inch In Diameter and 6-3/4 inches in Width
  • For a wheel that matches what you listed we have the Dexstar Wheel part # AM20720DX which is 16-1/2 inches in diameter and has a width of 6-3/4 inches. This has 6 lug bolt pattern. For an 8 lug we have the part # AM20725DX. If you were looking for a dually wheel setup we have the part # AM20730 instead. This has 8 lug bolt pattern.

  • Replacement Dual Wheel Dual Axle Wheels for 16.5 x 6 Rims with 8 on 6-1/2 Inch Bolt Pattern
  • For your 16-1/2 inch dually wheels we don't have an exact match as what you have is an odd size. However I do have a couple options for you that will work for your trailer. I recommend the Dexstar Dual Wheel with Offset - 16.5 x 6.75 Rim - 8 on 6.5 # AM20730. These wheels have a 4-3/4 inch pilot hole so they will work with your hubs because the wheels are hub centric so the pilot hole being larger isn't an issue. The slightly wider rim also is not an issue as the tires that are compatible...

  • Replacement Trailer Wheel for Equipment Trailer
  • We have several trailer wheels that will likely work for you. You didn't say the diameter of your rims but 17-1/2 inch is the most common with those specs. We have 3 Taskmaster wheels with a 4.76 inch pilot, 2 Dexstars with a 4.75 inch, and 1 dual wheel also with a 4.76 inch pilot hole. Taskmaster: # LT2524SP # LT589DMPWX # LT589DMPSX Dexstar: # AM20738 # AM22704 Dual Wheel # AM22467 We also have one dual wheel that's 16-1/2 inches in diameter, # AM20730.

  • Dimensions of Lug Holes in Dexstar Dual Wheel with Offset AM20730
  • The wheel stud (lug) holes in the Dexstar Dual Wheel with Offset # AM20730 are non-chamfered holes that accept a 5/8-inch stud diameter. I went to our warehouse with my trusty digital caliper to measure the holes in this item. I checked several holes and their size ranged from 0.660 to 0.665-inches. This wheel mounts with 5/8-inch flange nuts # 95188.

  • How to Distinguish Hub-Piloted Wheel from Stud-Piloted Dual RV Wheel
  • The size of pilot hole in a wheel matters if the wheel is a hub-centric type, but not if it is a stud-piloted wheel that centers using the wheel studs. If you remove your outer wheel and see a threaded part like # 6-69-2 with wrench flats then you have a stud-piloted wheel and the pilot hole diameter being larger does not matter. But if you see just standard threaded studs without the wrench flats then you have a hub-piloted wheel and the pilot hole size needs to match. You can see all...
