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 HWT Tires and Wheels - Wheel Only - AM20163 Review

Today we're going to review part number Am20163. This is the Americana 12-inch by 4-inch aluminum, series 04 Star Trailer Wheel. This has the 5 on 4-1/2-inch bolt pattern, and is silver in color. This wheel is made of a durable corrosion resistant aluminum. Has a nice attractive star spoke pattern here, the 5-spoke design. It is silver in between the spokes, and the face and the outer lip of this wheel is actually a machine finish.

Then they clear coat the whole wheel, to protect the finish of it. This is a high quality wheel, which will meet the Department of Transportation specifications. The room dimensions on this is 12 inches in diameter and 4 inches wide. When you go to measure a wheel, you're actually going to measure where the tire bead would seat on the wheel. So basically, when you mount a tire on here, the tire beads would seat, right here. When you measure the diameter, you'll measure inside to inside bead seat to bead seat, and on the width you'll measure inside to inside, bead seat to bead seat.

Just to give you an idea, the dimension on this is going to be inside to inside, right at 12 inches, and the width, again, will be right at 4 inches. 12-inch diameter; 4 inches in width. It does have a bolt pattern of a 5 on 4-1/2-inch bolt pattern. The best way to measure that bolt pattern is on a wheel that has an odd number of lugs. In this case, 5.

Just pick any wheel lug hole, and then what you'll measure is from the center of that starting lug hole, to the outer edge of the hole right across from it. Either one of those holes, you can go to, and just measure from the center of the beginning hole, to the outer edge of the second hole. In this case, we're going to go from this one to this one. Center to the outer edge is going to be right at 4-1/2 inches. 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern. It does use a wheel lug size of a half-inch by 20, and the held pilot diameter, which is this large hole in the center of the wheel, this goes over the hub on your trailer.

The diameter of this hole is going to be 3.19 inches. This does have a weight capacity of 1520 pounds. That should do it for the review on part number Am20163, the Americana 12-inch by 4-inch Aluminum Series 04 Star Trailer Wheel with the 5 on 4-1/2-inch bolt pattern. .

As part of our camper renovation, we replaced the ugly wheels on our camper with these. OMG, do they look so good! We finished the look with the center caps and lug nuts. I am always extremely happy with everything we get from etrailer.com! The instructions provided on the site for determining the correct size was very helpful. Great quality and value for a low price! 751529

Great product and service. This is a hard to find product that I needed to match the other 3 on my trailer. This is the exact same wheel for 1/3 the cost from manufacturer. George was very helpful and kept me informed of a slight shipping delay with my order. Everything arrived quickly and well packaged. After installation you can’t tell which wheel was replaced. Satisfied customer, look forward to our next transaction. 546429

I bought this wheel to have a spare for my tandem axle boat trailer. I haven't actually used it yet but it matches the existing wheels almost exactly and the bolt pattern is correct. The wheel seems fine and hopefully I won't need to actually use it. 364674

Review from a similar Aluminum Star Mag in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I received exactly what I ordered, After a delay due to Mfg. backorder. Packaging was good, but a little more protection on the rim edges would be nice. I chose these wheels because of the higher "G" load rated Goodyear tires purchased locally which are replacing the poor Quality OEM "E" rated tires which came on my trailer in 2009.The wheels look great too! All correspondence with personnel at etrailer, both by phone and e-mail was exceptional! They kept me informed as much as could be expected, and even offered other wheels to choose when the MFG. backorder time was unknown. I will definitely recommend etrailer. 362433

Review from a similar Aluminum Star Mag in Trailer Tires and Wheels


My RV had a flat and to my surprise it was the rim that was leaking. I didn't know anything about rims so I wasn't sure how or where to order a suitable replacement. I called etrailer and their representative was very helpful. With their help I was able to quickly determine the size and characteristics of a suitable replacement. I then shopped around (local dealers, the OEM website, and other third party vendors) only to find that etrailer had the best selection and prices. After ordering the rim, I received confirmation that it shipped that same day. I was surprise too when it arrived the next day. DIYers are always looking for suppliers of quality products at the best prices so I'll continue to use etrailer in the future. 330961

  • Lightest Tire and Wheel Combo for 12 Inch Trailer Wheel
    The Aluminum Hi-Spec Series 04 Star Mag Trailer Wheel - 12" x 4" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 # AM20163 has a shipping weight of just 10 lbs. The Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel - 12" x 4" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 - Chrome # AM20152 will be lighter at just 9 lbs and will be the lightest wheel we currently carry. For your tire, the Kenda K353 Bias Trailer Tire - 4.80-12 - Load Range B # AM10060 weighs just 9 lbs but will only allow speeds up to 65 mph. If you want to go 70 mph, then I recommend bumping up...

  • Will Taskmaster Tire # TTWSF53012C Fit On Hi-Spec Series 04 Trailer Wheel # AM20163
    The trailer tire part # TTWSF53012C that you referenced will fit perfectly fine on the trailer wheel part # AM20163 that you also referenced. These two sizes are perfectly compatible with each other and there aren't any options we offer that require specific contour fits either.

The Aluminum Hi-Spec Series 04 Star Mag Trailer Wheel - 12" x 4" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 # AM20163 also has the zero offset, so there is no difference between the two wheels in how far they sit from the axle hub face.

  • Aluminum Trailer Wheel Option for a 5.30-12 Trailer Tire
    A 5.30-12 trailer tire fits on a 4 inch wide wheel, so yes, your tires will fit on the HWT Aluminum Hi-Spec Series 04 Star Mag Trailer Wheel, # AM20163. When choosing new trailer wheels, you will also want to consider the wheel bolt pattern and the pilot hole diameter. This wheel has a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern and the pilot hole diameter is 3.19 inches. The pilot hole diameter is important because you will want to choose a wheel that will fit around the hub bore. If the pilot hole...

  • What is Lug Nut Torque with Aluminum Hi-Spec Series 04 Star Mag Trailer Wheel # AM20163
    When mounting the Aluminum Hi-Spec Series 04 Star Mag Trailer Wheel # AM20163 you'd need to use between 75 and 85 ft lbs of torque on the lug nuts.

  • Do Aluminum and Steel Trailer Wheels have the Same Offset
    The offset of basically all trailer wheels is the same, zero inches. There wouldn't be an offset difference between an aluminum or a steel wheel in the size you mentioned. Since we don't have a aluminum wheel and tire combo in the size you want the best option is the aluminum wheel part # AM20163 that you referenced with the correct tire size you need 4.80-12 like # TTWSF48012C from Taskmaster. This tire has a higher speed rating of 81 mph too.

  • Is Pilot Hole On HWT Aluminum Trailer Wheel An Issue Fitting Trailer Hub If It Is Larger Diameter
    A larger pilot hole on a wheel like part # AM20163 will not pose a problem if the wheel is held in place with the lug bolts. The only time the pilot hole would be an issue is if it is smaller than the trailer hub diameter or if you use bolts to attach the wheel and the wheel fits more snug around the hub. This is defined as hub-piloted. All of the 12 inch wheels with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern we offer have the same sized pilot hole of 3.19 inches diameter.

  • Fitment & Compatibility of HWT Aluminum Hi Spec Series 04 Star Mag Wheel w/4.80-12 Load Range B Tire
    Great news! The 4.80-12 sized tire fits a 4 inch rim, so your tire will fit the HWT Aluminum wheel # AM20163 you were looking at. Upgrading your wheel will not increase your Load Range B capacity of 785lbs at 60 psi, but they will be a nice upgraded look. I have linked the HWT Aluminum Wheel to this page for your convenience.

  • Aluminum 12" Wheel and Tire Recommendation for Highway Speeds of 75 mph
    If you really like the Aluminum Hi-Spec Series 04 Star Mag Trailer Wheel # AM20163 that comes with the Kenda # AM31206 then all you would need is the Taskmaster 5.30R12 Radial Trailer Tire # TT53012C and the valve stem # AM20907. The tire has a load range of C (1,050 lbs at 80 psi) and is rated for 81 mph so it would be perfect for cruising at 75 mph. Unfortunately we do not have any tires pre mounted on a 12" wheel that have a speed rating over 65 mph. After getting these parts you...

All of these wheels have the 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern and more than enough capacity for the tires you have. The aluminum construction will also resist corrosion well. I have linked...

  • Can 12 Tire and Wheels be Upgraded to Larger Size for Better Ground Clearance for Axle
    If your current 12" wheels use a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern then you should be able to upgrade to a 215/75R14 size tire provided that you have enough fender and frame clearance. I recommend using the Goodyear Endurance ST215/75R14 Radial Tire # 724865519 with the Galvanized Wheel # AM20364 which has an overall diameter of 26.69" and a section width of 8.5".

  • Replacement Tire and Wheels For Size 6.00-12
    I do have some options for you. The closest tires and wheels that compare to the one pictured are our 145/80-12s. I recommend using either the Kenda Karrier S-Trail # AM31199DX, or the Kenda Karrier Black Mod # AM35354; both of these tires have a 1,220 lbs maximum load at 65 psi. I am recommending the tires with the wheels because even though your wheel might be functional, it looks like it is a little beat up around the edges.

  • 12 Inch Aluminum Wheel Similar to Lionshead Lynx Wheel
    The Aluminum Lynx Trailer Wheel - 15" x 5" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 - Silver # LHSL301 is not available in that 12 inch size. For a similar wheel in that size I recommend the Aluminum HWT Series S5 Split Spoke Trailer Wheel # AM22319HWT. This is the closest option to that style we have available in 12 inch diameter but we also have that wheel with black accents # AM22319HWTB or the Series 04 Star Mag # AM20163.
