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"

I put these tires on a 1960 utility trailer. It was a former U hall trailer before they went to all metal trailers. It is 5'X 8' with 30" high sides. It's great to move heavy furniture, mulch, and dirt. I needed new tires and rims. I found this website to be informative, easy to order, excellent prices and very fast delivery. I love the look of the new set on the trailer and the ride and tracking is much better. I highly recommend this web site 454112

The Tire and Rim were received via UPS on schedule. They look great. FYI, it will be used as a spare for my small utility trailer. Unfortunately the trailer is not here so I am unable to verify it fits OK (it should). I will do this in a couple of weeks. Thank you E-Trailer, I had quotes from local tire dealers for nearly double the price you advertised. This was ridiculous, they obviously didn't want to be bothered or do business with me. 143942

#1 This site is dynamite! I needed 6 tires for my Boat Trailer, and I must tell you the information given to my son & I was outstanding. We were able to go to the Boat Dealer handling our "very used trailer" and He was able to give us the useful measurements we needed to get the most accurate tire size. The Customer Service is OUT of THIS WORLD!!!!! I wish every Company I encounter would be 1/2 as great as these people! We got the Tires immediately UPS! I was amazed! I have already told so many guys about your site and for anyone needing any items associated with TRAILERS, YOU ARE THE FOLKS!!!! Your site was a fabulous find! Thank YOU !!!!!! Sincerely, Ken 40821

I would go and get your tires spin balanced. All 5 of mine were out of balance as expected and 60 dollars cured all of that. It will provide for a better ride for your RV and certainly help to eliminate any vibration.

Fast service and packaged professionally. Had tires/wheels for trailer dynamically balanced as always and one had to have a lot of wheel weights to true the tire wheel combo. A good thing to balance and make sure weights are on tight because of higher spin due to smaller tire diameter. Thanks etrailer.. 129785

These are by far the BEST tires and wheels out there. I searched the web for hours trying to find a better deal trust me you wont find it. They even beat big super centers prices. Tread design is way better then others to. Only thing I should of done was paid extra for shipping to get them little sooner and was unable to track. 416738

The original tires lasted 10yrs. and they started to show signs of dry rot due to the AZ. weather. What a great buy. I've installed these tires on my golf cart which is driven on asphalt pavement all the time. More reasonable than org. golf cart tires and much easier to steer versus org. golf cart tires. A great buy and excellent service and fast delivery . 616358

Great tire and rim for my aluminum boat trailer. These folks really do a great job. First time buyer, but I'll be back. Never ordered tires off the internet either. You folks made it so simple to find what I needed, no problems with the website either. I really am surprised at how fast I received my order (on the day you said it would be here, it was.)

Just a heads up! I called about wheels and tires for my pop up trailer, and from that moment on it was a "pleasure & refreshing" dealing with the staff member who was very knowledgeable on the products they offer and what can be cross referenced to work! The price was "right" and the service and delivery time even better! I can't say enough good things about the whole process with etrailer.com, "Very Happy Camper", no pun indented. Thanks for the GREAT service! 586171

Comments

We are still very pleased with the wheels/tires, we have been camping several times and have no complaints or issues. Its ironic, I was just on your site last evening looking at hitches/wiring harness for a 2008 Chrysler Aspen, we are looking at a potential vehicle but it does not have a hitch. Etrailer was the first site I thought of to look for one. You guys have great products and the installation videos are VERY nice to see how difficult the different types of hitches will be to install.

Do you have a question about this Tires and Wheel?


  • Recommended Parts For Dual Axle Trailer Complete Rebuild
  • For your trailer rebuild, I recommend the Dexter Trailer Axle w/ Electric Brakes - EZ-Lube - 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern - 89" - 3,500 lbs for your tandem axles, # 35545E-ST-EZ-89. You will also want the U-Bolt Kit for Mounting 3,500-lb, Round Trailer Axles - 5-1/2" Long U-Bolts, # APUBR-1. For suspension I suggest the 4-Leaf Double-Eye Spring for 3,500-lb Trailer Axles - 25-1/8" Long, # SP-212275. You will then need a kit with mounts for your equalizers and shackle straps.

  • Selecting Spare Trailer Tires in Size ST225/75-15
  • For spare wheels/tires in your tire size ST225/75-15 with your 5-on-4-1/2 bolt pattern you can refer to the page I linked for you. This displays all wheel/tire items that match your requirements and these are offered in Load Range ratings C and D. We have both bias ply and radial type tires in your size. Naturally you want to match your tire size but you also want to use the same type of tire too. For higher-speed highway driving radials are preferred for their greater flex and traction;...

  • Can a Trailer Wheel with Larger Diameter Pilot Hole be Used on the Same Hub
  • The pilot hole diameter only matters in one of two scenarios: First, if the wheel secures to the hub using bolts instead of lug nuts then the pilot hole has to be exact because that is how it centers on the hub. Second, if the wheel secures to the hub using lug nuts but the wheel pilot hole is too small, it just will not fit on the hub. Having a larger pilot diameter on a wheel that secures with lug nuts is fine.

  • Torque Rating Specification For 14 Inch Wheel On Travel Trailer
  • The torque rating depends on the lug size and type wheel you have on your trailer. I will list the torque specifications for 14 inch wheels. 7/16 inch lug steel wheel 55-65 ft-lb. 1/2 inch lug steel wheel 75-85 ft-lb. 9/16 inch lug steel wheel 95-115 ft-lb. 12 mm steel wheel 70-80 ft-lb. 14 mm steel wheel 85-95 ft-lb.

  • Changing Kenda Load Range C Trailer Tire To Load Range D
  • Before switching to a higher load rated tire, like a load range D or E, you will want to check the weight capacity on your trailer wheels. If you have a steel wheel, the capacity should be stamped on the backside lip of the wheel. If you have an alloy wheel, this rating should be stamped on the back side of the wheel spokes. From the information I was able to obtain, a load range D tire will have a capacity of 2,150 lbs at 65 PSI. Another option would be just to upgrade to a wheel...

For the wheel, we offer part # AM20524 which is a 15x6 Galvanized wheel with a 5-on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern.

  • Any given tire will fit a range of rim widths. The ST225/75-15 tire will fit 6, 6-1/2, and 7 inch rims, but not a 5 inch rim. The tire will not be able to seat properly on the rim and you will not be able to keep air in it or safely use it. As far as who you should believe, our resident tire expert has 30 years in the tire business so I trust his expertise on anything to do with tires/wheels.

  • Upgrading Tires and Wheels on Single Axle Travel Trailer
  • Your existing tires are about 8 inches wide by about 26 to 26-1/2 inches in diameter. The larger 225/75-15 would be about 1/2 inch wider and around 28 inches in diameter, which would only use 3/4 to 1 inch of the available 3-1/2 inches of clearance you mentioned.. From the clearances you mentioned, it sounds like the # AM3S862 would work well for you. This being said, I would recommend you go with a wheel/tire combo that uses a radial tire, like part # AM32459. The combo has a C load...

Your existing tires have a width of 7.7 to 8.1 inches and a diameter of 27.4 inches. They fit on 15 by 5-1/2 inch wheels. The next closest size with a load range D tire is 225/75-15. These tires range in width from 8.4 inches to 8.9 inches and could have a diameter between 28.1 and 28.4 inches. They fit on 15 inch by 6 inch rims so new rims would be required....

  • Is it Recommended to Balance Trailer Wheels/Tires
  • The trailer tire and wheel combination # AM3S862 is received from the supplier already with the tire mounted on the wheel. The supplier does not balance the combination, but when the tire is installed to the wheel they will line the high (heavy) spot on the tire with the low (light) spot on the wheel. This does not completely balance the tire and wheel combination but it does eliminate any excessive out of balance condition. I am glad that balancing the rims/tires of your trailer helped...

  • Increasing Weight Capacity of 2012 Jayco X17Z
  • Because your set up will only be as strong as its lowest-rated component. You could go with higher rated leaf springs and larger, higher rated wheels/tires, but you'd still be limited by the axle capacity. Therefore, to increase the capacity of your travel trailer, you'll need to replace the axle, springs, hubs, wheels and tires. You'll probably need to relocate the spring hangers. We offer a few off-the shelf replacement axles in standard sizes. If you'd care to reply with the capacity...

  • We have just the tire size that you have, part # AM10040. But we do not carry a rim that will fit this tire. This tire has an overall diameter of 21.1 inches so for a wheel and tire combo that we offer that would have the same diameter you would want the Kenda KR25 ST145R12 Radial Trailer Tire with 12" Aluminum Wheel # AM31208 as it have the same overall diameter and it has the same 4 bolt pattern of your current setup.

Which the closest size we offer that is compatible is the ST215/75R14 like Karrier ST215/75R14 Radial Trailer Tire # AM10229. This tire has a diameter of 26.8 inches which would be about an inch shorter in diameter than what you have. Is that too short? What problems will you experience if your tires aren't as tall as your current ones? Ground clearance? If so, you might be interested in a Dexter axle...

  • How to Determine the Correct Wheel and Tire Combination for a 1999 Escort Boat Trailer
  • When selecting a wheel and tire for your boat trailer you should go with the manufacturer recommendation for tire size or, if there is no manufacturer recommendation, you should use the trailer axle capacity to determine the best wheel and tire combination for your trailer. It sounds as if your trailer axle or axles are going to be rated for 5,000 pounds or more. If you have a tandem axle trailer, it is likely that you have two 3,500 lb axles.

  • What is the Closest Trailer Tire in Size to a P235/75-15 Car Tire
  • As you probably know, car tires should not be used on a trailer. This is because trailer tires are made with a thicker sidewall to handle more vertical load. Car tires are not built this way so it can lead to blow outs. The closest match to a P235/75-15 car tire would be an ST225/75-15 such as # AM3S862 which has the 5 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern. This is a load range D tire rated for 2,540 pounds at 65 psi. The difference in size between these two tire sizes is minimal. The ST225/75-15...

  • When you are talking about weight capacity you are limited to the least rated component in your setup. You are correct that the weight capacity of the frame needs to be taken into account as well as using tires, axles, leaf springs, and hubs with higher weight capacities. You can typically find the weight capacity of the frame itself stamped into the frame or on a sticker or label on the frame. The reason that trailer manufacturers can rate their trailer weight capacities a little higher...

  • Can Trailer Wheel with Larger Center Pilot Hole be Used on Hub that Uses Wheel Bolts, Not Lug Nuts
  • Actually, no, this is not going to work for you. The problem is that on wheels and hubs that use wheel bolts instead of lug nuts to secure the wheel to the hub, the pilot hole has to be exact because that is how it centers on the hub. Even if it looks like it is all lined up properly it could still be off a little bit because of the larger pilot hole. This will cause some wobbling and lead to tracking problems and premature tire and suspension wear. If you can tell me what the pilot...

  • Increasing Rim/Tire Size From 8 to 12 or 13
  • As long as the larger wheel you choose has a compatible bolt pattern with your hub, you have sufficient clearance between the tire and the fender, and you do not exceed the weight capacity of the hub you can switch up to a larger wheel with no problem. If you wanted to go from a hub with a 5 on 4-1/2 to a 5 on 5 bolt pattern I can check for something compatible, if you would provide me with the inner and outer bearing and grease seal reference numbers.

  • Availability of 15 Inch Trailer Wheel w/ 2.25 Inch Diameter Pilot Hole
  • The only time it's important that the wheel's pilot diameter matches with that of the wheels you're replacing is you have hub-centric wheels currently. A hub centric wheel uses the portion of the hub that extends through the pilot hole of the wheel to center and support the wheel on the hub. A wheel of this type would use flat headed wheel bolts. A lug centric wheel uses the lug bolts to center the wheel. If the lug bolts are coned, like part # RG02-020 then you have a lug centric wheel. So,...

  • Torque Rating for 1/2 Inch Lug Nuts on an Escort Boat Trailer
  • For 1/2 inch lug nuts like those used with tire and wheel combo # AM3S862 you will want to torque the lug nuts to 75 to 85 foot pounds. It is important to re-torque the lug nuts after 10 miles, 25 miles, 50 miles and then monthly after that.

  • Safe Distance Between Tire and Floor of Trailer when Upgrading to 15 Inch Tires
  • The rule of thumb when building a trailer is that you should allow 1.5 inches deflection at rated capacity of the spring for approximate full load dimension ( the spring can flatten out as much as 1-1/2 inches ). Then add 3 inches above tires beyond that point for maximum clearance.

  • What Is Backspacing Measurement Of Rim On AM3S862 Tire/Wheel Combo
  • The Loadstar Bias Trailer Tire with 15 Inch White Wheel, part # AM3S862, wheel rim measures 15 x 6 inches, and has a zero offset. I have attached a drawing of a wheel and at the bottom of the drawing it is marked where the backspacing measurement is taken. This wheel has 3-1/2 inches backspacing.

  • Will an ST225/75-15 Fit In Place of a 31x10.5R15LT Tire on a Boat Trailer
  • Wheel width can only be measured with the tire off of the wheel. You will measure from bead seat to bead seat. That will be from the inside of the inner wheel flange to the inside of the outer wheel flange, not from edge to edge of the wheel. I have linked a video that should help. If you measure and find you actually have an 7 inch wide wheel then you can use tire # AM10256. Any given tire has a certain range of wheel widths that it will fit. Going too large or small means the tire...

  • Are the Trailer Wheel and Tire Combinations Balanced
  • The trailer tire and wheel combination # AM3S862 is received from the supplier already with the tire mounted on the wheel. The supplier does not balance the combination, but when the tire is installed to the wheel they will line the high (heavy) spot on the tire with the low (light) spot on the wheel. This does not completely balance the tire and wheel combination but it does eliminate any excessive out of balance condition. I would recommend to balance the tire and wheel combination...
