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"

Dexstar 1 star, eTrailer.com Customer Service 5+++ stars These 5 Dexstar wheels were my 2nd set of Dexstar wheels. The first in 2001 when Dexter axle still owned and operated Dexstar. It was frustrating to realize the sloppy manufacturing quality when compared to my originals. Specifically, 4 of the 5 wheels had quite visible lateral runout. And, of course I didn't realize until I went to pickup my new wheels and tires from tire dealer mounting and saw the 4 of the 5 wheels with the largest amt of wheel weights I have ever seen on light truck tires covering up to 1/3 of the rim face front and rear. After dismounting & checking with a dial indicator, one was .048", one other was over .030, & didn't bother to check the others. One wheel was straight, however. 4 of 5 wheels had quality checking pen marks on the rear of the wheels - so they did undergo some type of human inspection. Phone calls plus eMails to Dexstar request lateral runout production tolerance specifications, and casual 'hey can you help me out here ' inquiries as to what criteria they used for warranty replacements, all met with no response. Focused pursuit of a response from Dexstar mfg over 5 days and a wkend resulted in discovering that Dexstar had only one person assigned to quality, who also is responsible for determining warranty work. [It's been over 2 wks and still no response]. No wheel specification documentation is available from Dexstar website or googling. I'm now under the impression that Dexstar's business model like others, requires that their distributors deal with these types of issues, and not directly with the manufacturer. Again, it was painful to witness such deterioration of quality since my first set of wheels, and yet they are still manufactured here in the U.S. This is one of a very few occasions in the past 20ys that I would give a single star in a review. In addition to the tolerance issues, the powder coating was questionable on 3 of the 5, and most of the wheels chipped (albeit small) rather easily wherever the tire mounting machine touched the wheels. My original painted wheels were quite durable for the first 12 yrs in the sun. But it all worked out even better in the end as eTrailer.com didn't hesitate to offer choices of a solution from a refund to upgrades to correct this. eTrailer topped it off with literally a painless return process. 324637

This rim is for a 1997 vermeer chipper, I purchased it because we need a spare tire for it. The rim is really nice looking and the same design as the stock rims. It cost $460 to have road side service fix your flat on a commercial vehicle. The price for a this rim and a tire $128, I hate going out and doing jobs when the repairs are almost as much as my jobs mainly if you have a crew to pay also. Plus the down time waiting for the road service to get to you. Now we do the repairs ourself save money and not 3 hours or more down time. Etrailer has great products and the price is great also. I payed shipping because the price is perfect, and they get it to you right away.. Thanks etrailer. Will be a long time customer.. 612958

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


  • Recommended Made in USA 16 x 6 Trailer Wheels With 6 on 5-1/2 Bolt Pattern
  • There are wheels made here in the USA but to get the right one I'd need to know your wheel bolt pattern and the wheel diameter you need. If you are unsure of what your wheel bolt pattern is or how to find it, I've added a link to a help article on how to determine wheel bolt pattern for you to take a look at. If you get back to me with that information I'd be happy to help you find the best wheel for your trailer.

  • How to Pick Out a Replacement Rim for a Horse Trailer
  • The Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20746 that you referenced is a 16 inch diameter wheel with a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern. I am assuming this is the same style of wheel that will look similar to what you currently have. Now to determine if this rim will fit what you have on your trailer you will need to make sure that your trailer tire size is designed to fit a 16 inch rim. You will need to find the size of the tire stamped on the sidewall. If the size ends in 16 then you...

  • Replacement Trailer Wheel for 2006 Cardinal 5th Wheel
  • For just a wheel the part # AM22657 that you referenced would work well though as it is the same size as what your trailer has. It looks like you actually have the part # AM20746 though as that closer matches what you have in the picture you submitted. Here's how to tell a tire's age. The DOT number code will be stamped on one side of the tire, near the bead area. This tire identification number will start with the letters DOT, then the next two numbers or letters are the plant code...

  • Dexstar Wheel Availability in 16 Inch and 6 on 5-1/2 Inch Bolt Pattern
  • Dexstar does not make that directional wheel in a 16 inch option. It is only available in 13 inch, 14 inch, and 15 inch options. I've attached the link to all your wheel options for the 16 inch wheels with the 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern you are seeking so you can see all your options. The Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20746 or the Dexstar Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel # AM20741 are probably the closest in style.

  • Does Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel - 16" x 6" - 6 on 5-1/2 Have an Offset
  • Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20746 does have a zero offset. We only mention the offset if the wheel has either a positive or negative offset. The ones that do not mention an offset will have a zero offset.

  • Backspacing for Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20746
  • Since Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20746 has a zero offset the backspacing would be half the overall width of the wheel which on a 16 x 6 wheel is about 7 inches. That would make the backspacing 3-1/2 inches.

  • What Is The Difference Between Galvanized And E-Coating On Trailer Wheels
  • The difference between E-Coat and Galvanized finish is the material and the method by which they are applied. Galvanizing involves the application of a heavy layer of molten zinc. E-coating is the process of immersing the part in a bath of water-soluable paint while being connected to an electrical power source set at a certain voltage. E-coating is widely used in the automobile industry due to the smooth surface and the ability to apply paint over it. If the item is being used...

  • Is Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20746 Compatible with Dexter Hub # 8-213-5UC1
  • The Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20746 that you referenced has a 6-on-5-1/2-inch bolt pattern that does match that on the 6000-lb-rated Dexter Hub Assembly # 8-213-5UC1. The grease cap included in this hub kit, which also does come with bearings and races, has an outer diameter of 2.44-inches, so the hub's bore will naturally be very slightly larger than that. For your 12-inch front wheels we offer hubs with 2 different 4-bolt bolt patterns, 4-on-4-inch and 4-on-5-inch. The...

  • Availability of Replacement Hub for Mobile Home Axle
  • Mobile home axles are meant to be used one time and then discarded, which is why finding replacement parts for them is nearly impossible in most circumstances. I checked the measurements you provided, looking for seals and bearings that would match so I could find the correct hub, and couldn't find a hub that's compatible with the spindle dimensions you gave me which isn't surprising. Your best bet would be to replace your existing mobile home axle with a trailer axle that uses standard...
