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"

If I could put negative stars I would go negative 100+
I'll explain bought these rims because I pull trailer in winter and wagon wheels don't last figured galvanized would after installing towed 12 miles came home retorqued as recommended pulled 150 miles retorqued again (with impact) pulled about 200 miles and tire flew off in 4 lane rush hour traffic, found all lug nuts loose on remaining tires it broke off all 5 studs bent fender ground u bolts on axle almost off trying to get to side of road, couldn't find the tire it went into traffic how everybody missed it who knows while I was dealing with tow truck someone must have stopped and took it.$300 tow bill later put a couple of studs in so I could put spare on and get into shop the pictures are the damage the lug nuts didn't seem to fit in hole right two off the tires weren't loose by feel wiggling the tire while jacked up but the nuts were working regardless, looking at back of rim the holes are offset and don't sit flush on hub if you look at the one pic you can see my spare sits flush as did the other rims I replaced with these pos's. Basically the rim is relying in the bolt hole and surrounding steel to support the weight of trailer never going to happen maybe if your trailer is empty, bolted on there is a 1/8th inch space between the hub and lug nut JUNK DO NOT BUY I will have a grand into fixing what these rims did. as a note I have pulled trailer's for 40+ years I own 6 other trailers of various styles have never had a tire come loose much less 4 of them. I have bought other items with no problems


Comments
I reached out to the manufacturer in regard to the performance of the rims. I found that you would want to use a torque wrench versus an impact wrench, preferably one that clicks, otherwise the possibility of over-torque on the lugs is very real, as in this situation. If an impact wrench is the only option, it should be set to the lowest setting and used with extreme caution.

I ordered 50 rims and needed them. I was sent just 1. Said Mid March for the rest of them. Will cross my fingers the arrive.

Besides this order etrailers is about the best company to order parts from in the USA.

I ordered 4 new rims for my boat trailer. My previous painted rims were rusted enough that I was not confident that I would not have rim leaks (been there). The rims were just as promised. They came well protected in nice boxes. I had the tire installed and balanced. I noticed that they had to use quite a few weights (3 large on one side, 2 medium on other side) to get them balanced. I took one wheel to another shop just to check and yes the proper balancing required all that weight. I believe that the galvanizing material must flow to one side and be a little thicker there. No problem. Just think if I did not balance them how out-of-round they would have run. I have ordered quite a few things from etrailer and have not been disappointed in the products and the service.




by:

Overall, I found the quality of these wheels to be above average with a very surprisingly good finish. I've seen wheels of this type (galvanized finish) that appeared very rough and dull, which of course doesn't necessarily affect its performance, just its aesthetic quality. But these were bright, fairly smooth and actually quite attractive as well as appearing to be very well constructed.

Now for a negative note: of the 4 that I purchased, I was told by the folks at the garage that they noticed one of the wheels seemed to be a bit 'warped' and wobbled a bit while they were balancing the tires. They offered to show me and I confirmed that indeed one of the wheels had about an eighth inch of side to side wobble that could eventually cause adverse tire wear.




by:

Nice finish, perfect fit, fast shipping!

Installer pointed out a weld they felt was subpar on one of the 6, but it looked okay to me (I'm not a professional).






by:

Very happy with the rims for my daughters horse trailer




by:

so much better than the white wheels that came with the trailer . After five years needed to replace the tires ,and wanted to have rust free wheels on my new one's. pretty much carefree after one year another great product from etrailer . Thanks




by:

Received the galvanized wheels, and the surface was rough most likely due to the galvanizing process. I was ok with that, but when my new tires were mounted, they could not be balanced due to out-of-round wheels (bad wobble on all 4) I returned them for full credit and ordered non-galvanized. The replacements balanced out perfectly. Faulty product cost me some time, but etrailer was great to work with.

Happy




by:

Great product and fast delivery. Will use them again.




by:

Galvanized wheel were just what I ordered. Got them delivered before I figured they would be here. Very satisfied.




by:

I purchased four of these wheels to replace my camper wheels after a double blowout. For a galvanized coating they don't look bad at all, and were the cheapest by far I could find. Tires mounted and balanced easy. I'm hoping to get a very long time out of these, and I'll definitely be coming to etrailer again if I need anything else.




by:

wheels were received , packed very good and are now mounted on my trailer. they look very good. The stainless steel lug nuts are perfect for this application also.




by:

Rims came quick and look great. This was the best price I found on the market for these rims. Thanks




by:

Great online shopping experience. Replacing 2 utility trailer rims. Product is as described. Good price. Fast, free shipping. Will recommend etrailer.com.




by:

We ordered these wheels for a snowmobile trailer. The trailer was in excellent condition except for the wheels. We were especially happy with how shiny the galvanized wheels were. Most are a dull gray color.
The trailer looks like a new one now.




by:

Thanks for the service- my wheels have made my old trailer looke newer and work well. Thanks again!




by:

The picture of the wheel on the website is better than the actual wheel. Also one of them was so off balance it took reseating the tire twice and a lot of weights to get it balanced propertly.




by:

I can’t write about the results of these products as I’m in the process of installing them...... a retrofit on my 50 year old trailer. I’m needing to do some extensive modifications to accommodate this new type of suspension. I would like to praise the sales & tech teams for their great support and timely delivery from Missouri to California (free shipping).




by: 05/23/2021

Excellent service and quick delivery.
Thank
you e trailer




by:

Good price. Good quality. Very much liked the free and timely delivery. etrailer.com is now on my favorites list.




by:

I found this product online just surfing and kept looking at it and comparing. It met every DOT regulation necessary and was exactly what I was looking for at a cheaper price. I bought 4 rims and the delivery notifications were ontime and accurate. I received the products safely wrapped/boxed and were installed easily. I will buy again.




by:

It was a bad wheel but etrailer stood behind the product ID grateful that they did and will continue to purchase from e trailer




by:

Did I not get center caps w/these rims? The finish is not impressive.


Comments
The center caps do not come with this wheel you will need a center cap with a 3.19 pilot diameter. I recommend part 319EZ.

  • What Width Rim will Fit a 205/75-15 Sized Tire
    Tires that are 205/75-15 will fit on rims that are 5, 5-1/2, 6, or 6-1/2 inches wide. So either will work for you. Like the # AM20524 is a galvanized, 5 on 4-1/2 steel spoke wheel that is 15 by 6 inches and will work with your tires.

  • What is the Weight Capacity for Dexstar Galvanized Trailer Wheel # AM20524
    According to Dexstar, the Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel, # AM20524, has a capacity of 2,050 pounds at 75 psi. This is a 15 inch by 6 inch galvanized trailer wheel with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. I have included a link to an FAQ article that explains how to determine bolt pattern for reference.

  • Can a Different Wheel with Matching Specs Be Used for a Spare Tire on Travel Trailer than Main Wheel
    The # AM20524 for your main wheels and # AM20422 as your spare will work well for you. As you noted, both wheels have the same ratings, measurements, and bolt hole pattern so as long as you use the same size tire on all of the wheels, they will work well for you on your trailer. I have attached a help article on trailer tire frequently asked questions for you.

  • Wheel/Tire Combo with 205/75R-15 Tire Mounted on 15 Inch Galvanized Wheel
    As you mentioned, we don't offer the # AM10245 205/75R-15 load range tire mounted on a rim because we don't have tire mounting equipment here, but you could purchase the rim separately and have a local tire shop mount them for you. We offer a 15x6 galvanized rim with a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern, part # AM20524 that would work great with the # AM10245 tire.

    We currently offer 2 15-inch galvanized wheels that may be a good fit for your Sure Load boat trailer. I linked the page for you to check out.

  • Tire and Wheel Package for 2007 Pathfinder 2200 TE/XL with a Yamaha F250 on an AmeraTrail Trailer
    The Dexstar steel spoke 15x6 galvanized trailer wheel, part # AM20524 is the correct wheel for the ST225/75R15 tire size. It has a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern. You will want to check the bolt pattern on your trailer to make sure it will match the bolt pattern on the wheel you purchase. There are 4 bolt patterns available in the 15 inch wheel, 5 on 4-1/2 inches, 5 on 5 inches, 6 on 5-1/2 inches, and 8 on 6-1/2 inches.

  • Galvanized Wheel and Tire Combo Recommendation for Tire Size 205/75-15 Load Range D
    We don't have any wheel and tire combos that are exactly what you'd need so you'd need to use the wheel part # AM20524 which is a 15 inch galvanized wheel and then have the # TR20515D mounted locally so that you get the size, Load Range, and wheel construction you need. This tire also has a speed rating of 81 mph which is nice since most are only rated for 65.

  • Recommendation to Replace ST225/75D-15 Tires on MacGregor Boat Trailer
    Replacing the existing bias ply ST225/75D-15 tires on your boat trailer with radial ply alternatives is a great idea, as the radial construction is going to allow for better traction and cooler operation at higher speeds on the highway. Ideally it will result in a bit of a smoother ride when compared to the bias units the trailer's equipped with (along with a longer lifespan), however it's not going to really affect sway. Technically speaking bias ply tires actually have a stiffer sidewall...

  • Recommended Galvanized Wheel and Tire for Best Combination with Tire Size 225/75R15
    The Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel # AM20524 you referenced is not rated for a maximum psi. That rating will be in response to the valve stem and tire you use. The tire you mentioned is a passenger tire noted by the P before the number and is not recommended for trailer wheels like this. If you are looking for a similar trailer tire in that size, I recommend the Provider ST225/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire # TTWTRTM2257515D.

  • Possible Replacements for 5.75 x 15 and 8.75 x 16 Trailer Tires for Boat Trailer
    The LT on your tires stands for "Light Truck" and while there aren't any specific replacements for 5.75 x 15 tires, what that size means is you have 15 inch diameter wheels and tires that are 5.75 inches wide. The closest we offer to that size is a 205/75-15, which is for 15 inch diameter wheels and are 8 inches wide. You may need new wheels as well because these tires are designed to fit 15" x 5", 15" x 5-1/2", 15" x 6", and 15" x 6-1/2" wheels. The option we have with the highest load...

  • Can Boat Trailer Upgrade From 205/75R15 to 225/75R15 Tires
    Yes, so long as you have the needed clearance, you can certainly upgrade the tires on your boat trailer from 205/75R15 to 225/75R15. The 225/75R15 tires will add just over 1/2 inch to the top of the tire, and be about 1/4 inch closer to the frame (you want at about 3" of clearance from the top of the tire to your fender and at least 1" of clearance between the inside of the tire and your trailer's frame rail). You are correct that you'll need new wheels as well since 225/75-15 tires fit...

  • What is the Capacity of a 15x6 Inch Trailer Wheel with 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern
    There are different capacities depending on the wheel. For 15x6 wheels with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern we have the following capacities: # AM20522 and # AM20524 are rated for 2050 pounds at 75 psi # AM20504 is rated for 1820 pounds at 75 psi # AM22627, # AM20551, and # AM20537 are rated for 2150 pounds at 65 psi You would not use passenger vehicle wheels on a trailer. They are not rated for that application and often the offset and/or bolt pattern is not right for a trailer.
