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"

Great product for a fair price! I've had these on my boat trailer for several years and love them.


2nd wheel ordered from you. Came quickly and as described. Thanks!


Awesome service highly recommended


Product arrived and was exactly as I ex pected.


I've used eTrailer for several years making purchases for the 4 trailers that I own and use regularly. I have 2 boat trailers, a cargo trailer and an RV trailer. I've purchased tie-down systems, hitch accessories, lighting, wheel and bearing systems. Most recently I purchased new galvanized wheels for my smaller boat trailer. I received the wheels today and the shipping time was fast and the quality of the wheels is excellent. I recommend eTrailer for any trailer support needs.


Wheel arrived quickly and correctly


Dexstar is Made in U.S.A. Very important to me!!
Great product.
Nice welds.
Good coverage with the galvanized coating.
Being used on a snowmobile trailer.
Should solve the problem I had with painted wheels that had the paint flake off and caused the wheels to rust and fall apart. Due to the heavy salt use here in New England during winter. has great customer service with really fast delivery.


I bought 2 of these to use as spares for a dual axle boat trailer. These wheels are exactly as advertised. I really appreciated the details on the website regarding the product. These details helped ensure that I ordered the correct size wheel.


Bought these to replace the rims for my boat trailer and I was very pleased with them. Very fast shipping and the rims fit great with the new tires I purchased from Big-O. Rims were packaged very good and safely. Will be buying another one from the soon to repace the spare rim.


I plan to use the rim for a spare tire for my boat trailer. Etrailer did an excellent job of packing the item for shipping and shipped it out very quickly to me. They were on top of the order from the get go and e-mailed me on the progress of same. The galvanized finish on the item appears to somewhat lumpy and non-uniform in nature---- it may be how they are all made now or it might be just this single sample. The rim itself should work out fine for my use.


Excellent purchase


I ordered these to replace some older black solid steel wheels. They fit really well, look a lot better than the ones they replaced for sure. The finish and overall look seemed a bit rough, but nothing that stopped me from using these wheels. Still I would like to see the finish be better.


Needed a new rim for a blown tire and/or spare tire for my boat trailer. I appreciated the consultation with a technician to make sure I had the correct rim. It arrived within two days of ordering and came in pristine galvanized condition. It arrived packed carefully in a box. Only issue was too many staples....but I guess better safe than sorry. I am fully satisfied.


This is for a spare tire on a pontoon trailer. Product is as described and very good quality. Above all else, I received excellent follow up service and help on expedited shipping from George J at eTrailer. It’s refreshing to find an online seller that provides this kind of service. I will be a return customer.


Coating pooled as it hung to dry. Creates unfinished look. No issues getting a bead to seat though.


Bought 2 first and liked them. Should have bought a 3rd for the spare tire, so this order took care of it. This is my 6th or 7th order from they do a great job every time!


I purchased a spare wheel for my boat trailer, as well as a trailer mount for it. The pricing was very reasonable, shipping was super fast, and items were well packaged. I’ll be purchasing from etrailer again.


The cost and quality of the galvanized wheel was the best. I look to Etrailer first for my trailer needs.


Very poor quality....lot of pit in metal and does not look straight.
I would not feel safe putting these I my trailer. I do not recommend these wheels to anyone.


I bought this wheel as a spare for my boat trailer. I am pleased with the quality of it. I haven't run it on the ground (hope I will never need to!). I would have given it a 5, but the finish isn't as smooth as I would like.


Excellent product. I have since sold the trailer that these wheels were used on.


Wheels appear to be well built, and fit as they should. The galvanized finish has some flaws in it, but at the price these wheels are offered, that is minor, and can be overlooked.


got it real fast


Pretty nice wheel and great for my old boat trailer but if I had a newer trailer and wanted it to look sharp would like a smoother finish

  • Will Americana Steel Trailer Wheel AM20234 Accept Tire Size ST185/60R13
    Yes, Americana Galvanized Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel # AM20234 measures 13 x 4-1/2-inches and it will accept the tire size you referenced, ST185/60R13. This wheel also works with tire sizes ST175/80-13 and ST185/80-13. The linked article on tire sizing may be of interest since it lists the tire sizes that are compatible with each wheel diameter/width. The second linked article on trailer tires covers common questions on aspects such as inflation pressure, speed ratings and weight capacity...

  • What Is Pilot Hole Diameter Of Americana Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel
    The pilot diameter for the Americana Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel, part # AM20234 is 3.19 inches. This wheel has a galvanized finish and a 5 on 4-1/2 wheel bolt pattern. The capacity for this wheel is 1,660 lbs.

  • Is There a Standard Weight Capacity for 13 inch Galvanized Steel Trailer Wheels
    Yes, 13 inch galvanized steel wheels do have weight limits. For example, the Dexstar Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel, part # AM20234, that you referenced has a weight limit of 1660 lbs at 65 psi. Other rims will have other weight limits based on their design. What I am trying to say is that there is not an industry standard on 13 inch steel wheels as far as weight capacities go. There are some that have higher weight capacities and some with lower capacities. I will say that a majority of them...

  • Would the Americana Steel Spoke Rim fit a 2005 Basstracker PT175 Boat Trailer
    Most likely the Americana Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel # AM20234 would work for you. You will want to check the bolt pattern of your wheel to be certain though. This wheel has a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern. I attached an FAQ article on how to determine bolt patterns that you should check out. The tire size you gave is designed for rims from 4-1/2-5-1/2 inches in width. The # AM20234 is 4-1/2 inches in width so it should work well.

  • Availability of 4.80x12x4 Trailer Wheels with 3-Inch Bolt Pattern
    We do offer a range of trailer wheels (alone and also with pre-mounted tires) in several wheel bolt patterns, but none with a 4-on-3-inch bolt pattern. The link provided will show you our main page for available trailer wheels and tires where you can sort the products shown based on the characteristics you need. The second link will show you wheel/tire combinations in the 4.80 x 12 size but these are offered only in 4-on-4-inch and 5-on-4-1/2-inch bolt patterns. I also included a link...

  • What Does a 0.5 Inch Positive Offset Mean for a Trailer Wheel
    Wheel # AM20214 has a positive offset meaning that the mounting surface is further way from the trailer. This makes the tire closer to the trailer by 1/2 inch. A 165-13 is not a common trailer tire size but it would be 6-1/2 inches wide. A 185/80-13 is a common trailer tire size and it would be 7.28 inches wide, a difference of over 3/4 of an inch. If you also go a wheel with a positive offset that would move the tire over 1-1/4 inches closer to the trailer. I reocmmend going with a wheel...

  • Availability of 13 x 4-1/2 Directional Style Galvanized Wheel with a 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern
    The first thing that you will want to double check is the width of the wheel that your technician measured. When most people measure a wheel width they measure the total width of the wheel while you are supposed to measure the bead seat to bead seat measurement (see attached picture). If your technician measure outside to outside for the width of your wheels then you will be looking for a wheel with 13 inch x 4-1/2 inch specs. We do have a directional wheel that measures 13 inches x 4-1/2...

  • Recommended Replacement for Rusty 13 Inch Wheels on 24 Foot Travel Trailer
    Are you sure about the 205/75-13 tire size you mentioned? That doesn't show up as a valid tire size. If you needed a 13 inch rim which works with a 175/80-13 or a 185/80-13 tire, I'd recommend the # AM20234 galvanized 13 x 4-1/2 inch rim. For something that looks a little nicer, an aluminum wheel would be a good choice that would also provide the corrosion resistance you're looking for. For a simple aluminum rim, I'd recommend the 13 x 5 inch HWT # AM22323HWT. Both rims have a 5 on 4-1/2...

  • Can Galvanized Wheel be Used with Boat Trailer in Saltwater?
    You could absolutely use the Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel - 13" x 4-1/2" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 - Galvanized Finish Item # AM20234 with your saltwater use boat trailer. Hosing it off may extend it's life. These would be much better and would avoid the peeling or flaking of a painted wheel. I've added a link to a review video of this wheel for you to take a look at.

  • Replacement 13 Inch Trailer Wheel for a 2015 Tracker Pro 170 Bass Boat Trailer
    The vast majority of 13 inch trailer wheels have the 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. I looked up your 2015 Tracker Pro 170 and found that it has the 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. I also found that it is a directional silver steel wheel based on pictures I have seen from Tracker. We have those! You will need # AM20259. I have linked a video review of this wheel for you.

    I can definitely help you find replacement tires with rims and without rims, but I need some more information. I see you have a 1986 Skamper pop-up camper.

  • Would Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel # AM20234 Fit as a Wheel Replacement for a FLOE Snowmobile Trailer
    The Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel # AM20234 that you are considering will bolt right up to a trailer hub that has a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern like what is on your trailer. The rim is 13 inches in diameter and is 4-1/2 inches wide with a zero offset. That shouldn't be an issue for your trailer but it is good info to know. The most common tire size for this rim is 175/80R13 like the part # TTWTRTM1758013C which would be a great option.

    We have all of our wheels marked under the "boat trailer" section since you can technically use any wheel for a boat trailer.

  • Recommended 13" Wheels For 175/80D13 Tires On Boat Trailer
    I would be happy to recommend the correct wheels for your boat trailer with 175/80D13 tires. There are two different bolt patterns commonly used with 13" boat trailer wheels being 5 on 4-1/2", and 4 on 4", but I recommend measuring the bolt pattern using the included help article to confirm you bolt pattern before placing your order for the wheels. If your trailer uses the 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern I recommend the Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel - 13" x 4-1/2" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 - Galvanized Finish...

  • Does Pilot Hole Size Matter When Replacing a Trailer Wheel on a 1984 Basstracker Boat Trailer
    A larger pilot hole will not matter as long as the wheel centers on the hub using lug nuts. If the wheel centers on the hub using wheel bolts, like # RG02-020 as an example, the pilot hole will need to be exact. The wheel that you have chosen, # AM20214, also has a positive offset of 0.5 inches (mounting surface of the wheel sits outside the rim centerline). For a marine application, I would go with a galvanized wheel, # AM20234. I have also included a link to an FAQ article on trailer...

    If you want the most durable trailer wheel that won't corrode, I would recommend going with an aluminum wheel. These can be attractive as well as durable.

The next most durable and attractive wheel, would be the PVD finish steel modular wheel. The PVD finish (PVD stands for physical vapor deposition) provides...

  • Can 13 inch Trailer Wheels be Used with the Titan Disc Brake Kit # T4747200
    The Titan Disc Brake Kit # T4747200 that you referenced has been confirmed to work on 13 inch trailer wheels like the part # AM20234 that you referenced so it would work well for you. I wasn't able to find any information on the TS3571EZ axle you have by Dexter, but I will say this will fit a Dexter 3,500 lb axle that has hubs on it currently that are inner bearing number of L68149 and outer bearing number of L44649. Pull your current hubs to check the bearings to be sure.
