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 - AM20794 Review

Today we’re going to review part number AM20794. This is the Dexstar 16” x 6” mini mod steel trailer wheel with the 8 on 6-1/2” bolt pattern and it is silver in color. Now this wheel is a sturdy steel construction and has a nice silver powder coat finish over the e-coat primer. This will give you excellent corrosion resistance. Now this is a mini mod design. Now when I say mini mod, it basically means that it has the round holes that go around the design of the wheel as opposed to the standard spoke trailer wheels that you normally see with the triangular openings.

This one is a mini mod which has the round holes. This wheel is a high quality wheel that will meet the Department of Transportation’s specifications. The dimensions again are 16” diameter and 6” wide. And just to give you an idea, when you measure that it’s actually where the tire would seat on this rim. When you mount the tire on here, the beads will seat right here. So that’s what you’re going to measure. So in other words when you measure the diameter you won’t be measuring outside to outside, it’s going to be bead seat to bead seat. So right here we’ll put the ruler on it, and you’ll see there’s your 16” bead seat to bead seat diameter. And it’s also a 6” wide wheel. And it will be the same way when we measure the width it won’t be edge to edge, its bead seat to bead seat. So again, when you put the ruler on that, it’s 6”. So 16” diameter and 6” in width.

The bolt pattern on this wheel is a 8 lug 6-1/2in bolt pattern. And to measure that bolt pattern on a wheel that has an even number of lugs, like this wheel has 8”. All you do is pick one lug, and measure from the center of that lug to the center directly across from it. We’re going to pick this lug right here, straight across is center to center 6-1/2”. So 8 lug, 6-1/2” bolt pattern. Now this wheel is designed to fit on the wheel stud size of a ½”-20 or a 9/16”-18. The hub pilot diameter hole, which is the large hole in center which goes over the hole in your trailer. We’ll measure that. The pilot diameter is going to give you 4.9” so just under 5” for hub pilot diameter.

The weight capacity is 3960 lbs at 110 psi. That means it’s a heavy duty wheel. Now 1 tip though, if you wanted to get the highest capacity rating on this wheel, you’ll need to use a metal valve stem. This wheel does not come with a valve stem, and if you use a rubber valve stem, it won’t give you the 110 psi rating. We recommend, and we sell this separately on our website, it’s a related part on the page for this wheel. This is part AM20906. It’s a metal valve stem. When you install this on here, it will give you over a 100 psi rating. So to be able to get that capacity, be sure to use a metal valve stem. That should do it for the review on part number AM20794 the Dexstar 16”x6” mini mod steel trailer wheel 8 on 6-1/2” bolt pattern and silver in color.

Exact replacement for my horse trailer. Had to buy a spare because BISON furnished a spare but it was 6 lug and not 8 lug. By the time I needed a spare it was out of warranty. Not a good time to find out it does not fit with horses in trailer and on side of the road. Word of advice to anyone! Something else to check before leaving the lot with a new trailer. Fast ship! Thanks etrailer! 389523

I purchased these rims because they're made in the USA. They're well made and are heavier due to increased load capacity. Rims were true and had very little run out, unlike the chinese made rims that came originally on my trailer. I would purchase these rims again. 239347

The rims where they are welded could have a better finish where the o.d of the rim meets, and the welding on the back side still had pieces of mig wire sticking out to get your hand stick with the wire. I had four new rims already that I could not use because of the positive offset. They were made in china and had a finshed better finish, and I hate to say that. I really expected better quality come from a Dexstar Usa product. Maybe alike of quality control. 215432

Purchased these for spares for our horse trailer. They are heavy! Good strong rims. We are putting these on a 38 ft horse trailer with LQ. Each axel is rated at 7k so these rims were perfect for that. 139768


Comments

I will be using these wheels on my horse trailer as well. My current wheels are gray but Im having trouble finding that color. Does the silver wheel that you ordered have a matte finish as opposed to shiny? I prefer the matte finish. Thanks for your help.

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


  • Wheel Offset And Backspacing Of The Dexstar Mini-Mod 16" Wheels
  • Backspacing and offset are terms used to look at the same thing in a different way. Backspacing is described as the distance from the center of the hub to the inside edge of the wheel at the bead seat whereas offset is the distance from the center of the wheel to its mounting face. On a wheel with a zero offset, the backspacing will be slightly larger than half of the width of the wheel because the wheel width is measured from bead seat to bead seat (see photo). It is not the overall width...

  • Differences Between Silver Steel Modular Trailer Wheel 16x6 inch 8 on 6-1/2 inch Bolt Pattern
  • The four rims you referenced are all VERY similar. They are all the same size, bolt pattern, pilot diameter, and very similar finishes. The # TTW660865SM3 has the highest capacity at 4,400 lbs. The # AM20797 has a 3,750 lb capacity and has a bit of flake in the powdercoat. The # AM20794 has a 3,960 lb capacity and has the standard silver powdercoat The # AM20760 has 3,750 lb capacity and standard silver powdercoat.

  • Recommended Replacement For Dexstar # 17-293 With 16x6 8 Lug Rim
  • While searching for a replacement for your Dexstar #17-293, I found a great option that is the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20794. It has a zero offset with 3,960 pound capacity at 110 psi. It has an 8 lug on 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern and is compatible with 1/2-20 or 9/16-18 wheel studs. Sorry to hear about your bent rim. All kinds of things can cause a rim to bend...rough roads, debris in road, etc. Regardless of cause, bent rims are not fun! If this wheel is not...

  • Dexstar Part Number of # AM20794 Wheel
  • Dexstar's part number for the # AM20794 Mini-Mod wheel you referenced is 017-310-xx. It's a 16x6 rim with a zero offset and a 3960 lb/110 psi weight capacity/max pressure. It has a 8 lug on a 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern and is compatible with 1/2-20 or 9/16-18 wheel studs.

  • Comparison of Kenda and Taskmaster 235/85R16 Trailer Tires
  • The Kenda Karrier # AM10501 and Taskmaster Provider # TTWPRG235R16 are both 235/85R16 sized tires that are quite similar. The main difference is the Load Range and therefore load capacity. The Kendas have a Load Range F with a maximum capacity of 3,960 pounds at 95 psi and the Taskmasters have a Load Range G with a maximum capacity of 4,080 pounds at 110 psi. Both are manufactured in Asia. As are nearly all tires these days, unfortunately. If you haven't already gotten them you'll...

  • 16 Inch Trailer Wheels Rated for at Least 3,960 Pounds at 110 PSI
  • Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20794 has the same 3,960 pound capacity at 110 psi as Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire # AM10501. So if you are looking for an 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern these two would be a great match. For a valve stem use # AM20906. You can also use white Mini Mod wheel # AM20789 or 8 spoke white wheel # TTW660865WS4.

  • 16 inch Trailer Wheel with 6 Lug Bolt Pattern that Can Handle 110 PSI
  • As long as you install a valve stem like the part # AM20906 in the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20794 it would do just fine handling 110 psi. Typically it is the valve stem that is the limiting factor for tire pressure on a wheel and the one I recommended would handle 110 psi without a problem.

  • What Size Rim Diameter and Pilot Diameter is Required to Install on Hub # KHR13858E
  • Since the # KHR13858E is a 13 inch rotor you would need to use 16 inch or larger trailer wheels with 8 on 6-1/2 inch bolt patterns like the # AM20794 which has a pilot diameter of 4.9 inches. I went out to our warehouse to measure this hub and found that the pilot diameter of a wheel would need to be 4-3/4 inches to fit on this hub.

  • Okay To Use Trailer Wheels on 1965 Ford F250
  • As long as the bolt pattern and pilot diameters match and the 0 offset of the AM20794 wheel is compatible with your truck, there is no reason why you could not use a trailer wheel on your 1965 F-250. According to my research, the 1965 Ford F250 used a 16 inch wheel with a 8 lug on 6-1/2 inch bolt circle. The wheel you asked about has a matching bolt pattern, and the pilot diameter is 4.9 inches. Each wheel has a 3960 lb capacity, which should be fine for your truck as long as you do...

  • Can a Trailer Use Wheels that Have Different Weight Capacities
  • As long as the wheels are all rated for the weight of your trailer you would have no problem using the # AM20794 and # AM20760. Them having different weight capacities isn't a problem in it of itself, but if the combined weight capacities of all the wheels wasn't enough for the weight of your trailer that would be where the problem is. Both the wheels would have enough capacity to be used on a 7k axle so you would be fine.

  • Can Wheels from a 2004 Ford F-350 be Used on a Trailer
  • No, you shouldn't use vehicle wheels on a trailer. Among other things, the offset (how far or close to the trailer the wheel is) is different on vehicles than trailers. Often times the bolt hole mounting patterns are not exactly right and the pilot (center) holes are usually not the correct sizes. Trailer tires and wheels are designed for more vertical load than passenger vehicle tires and wheels and for all of these reasons it is not recommended to use vehicle wheels for a trailer. I...
