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 - AM20149 Review

Today we are going to review part number AM20149. This is the Dexstar, 12 inch by 4 inch white mini-mod steel trailer wheel with the 5 on 4 1/2 inch bolt pattern. This wheel is a sturdy steel construction. It has a nice white powder coat finish over an e-coat primer, on both the front and the back of the wheel. Gives you excellent corrosion resistance. The design on this is a modular design, or mini-mod they also call it. What that means, it uses the round holes all the way around. This is a high quality wheel, it meets the department of transportation specifications.

This wheel is made in the U.S.A. A few specs on this, the dimension on this is measured inside to inside, so on this wheel it's 12 inch diameter. If we take the tape measure and put it on the inside to the inside, you can see it's 12 inches. The width, the same way, inside to inside or bead seat to bead seat, is going to be right at 4 inches. So, 12 inches by 4 inches. The bolt pattern on this wheel is a 5 on 4 1/2 inch bolt pattern, and if you ever want to measure the bolt pattern on a wheel that's an odd number of lugs, in this case 5, you just pick any lug hole, let's pick this one, and then you'll measure across to either one of these holes. When you measure, you measure from the center of the starting hole to the furthest edge of the hole that you go to.

If we take a tape measure and go center to furthest edge, you can see is 4 1/2 inches, so 5 on 4 1/2 inch bolt pattern. This does use a wheel lug size of 1/2 inch by 20. Pilot hole diameter, which is the large hole here in the center of the wheel, goes over the hub on your trailer, measures 3.19 inches. The weight capacity on this wheel is 1,520 pounds. The last thing on this, is it does have an off-set. Most trailer wheels do not have an off-set, most of them have a zero off-set, which means this mounting surface is right at the center line of the wheel. This one has a negative 1/2 inch off-set, so this mounting surface actually moves a 1/2 inch back towards the trailer, and when it does that it will move the tire away from the trailer. This wheel does have a 1/2 inch negative off-set. That should do it for the review of part number AM20149. This is the Dexstar, 12 inch by 4 inch, white mini-mod steel trailer wheel with the 5 on 4 1/2 inch bolt pattern..

First of all, I want to say that eTrailer is an awesome bunch of people to work with. They know their stuff, have great products and excellent instructional video's. I ordered new rims and complete brake assemblies and they were perfect. The shipping was extremely fast, the fit and function was exact and the brake assembly was as easy as the video made it out to be. Thank you VERY much for your help, great prices and excellent customer service. I am a customer for life! Thank you!

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I love these wheels! They are everything I expected and more ; they not only look good , they are strong enough for the weight I haul. They were packaged good and I received them without any flaws. Thank you!

I love the wheels! No problems whatsoever. I would buy them again!

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I bought 4 of these wheels because they were American made and powder coated. After receiving them, they were all damaged in shipment due to poor packaging. Two wheels per box separated by a small piece of cardboard stapled to the inside of the box. This piece came loose during shipment and destroyed the wheels. etrailer customer service was outstanding in sending another set and setting up a return. Issues...the second set was requested to be sent in individual boxes to prevent damage, however they were again packaged 2 per box with a little larger piece of cardboard. There was still severe chipping of the finish, but no physical denting like the first set. The powder E-coat primer/powdercoat finish is weak at best. The powdercoat is almost non existent on the inside of the wheel. The finish rubs off on the inside of the cardboard box turning it white, and the way it is flaking off of the wheels indicates to me that the powdercoat process used is flawed. 2nd time around I reached out to Dexstar wheel directly, and have returned those wheels to them for examination of the finish. Dexstar is replacing them for me direct as they told me etrailer purchases these wheels from another distributor and not directly from Dexstar. Like I told etrailer and Dexstar, for the price of these wheels, they should have a much better finish. I have 2 Chinese made white painted wheels that are in way better shape for 1/3 of the cost of these. I would not recommend purchasing these wheels from etrailer if you want a quality wheel. Hopefully the replacements directly from Dexstar will arrive in better shape, however I feel the finish will be the same and uneven on the inside at best as the Dexstar sales manager told me they don't put much powder on the inside of the wheel, because the E-coat primer keeps the wheel sealed. Disappointed all around with the product, but both customer service departments have been excellent.

I replaced a couple of 25 year old rusty spoke wheels with these Dexstars. They look great and updated the trailer nicely!

I ordered 4 rims and all of the arrived to finish damage. One even looks as though is was run down the road with a flat tire. They will hold air but I worry about rust issues now.


Comments
Sorry to hear about the cosmetic damage to your wheels. They will definitely need touched up with paint to avoid rust. Customer Service will reach out to you.

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Very high quality steel wheel (made in USA) made it affordably possible to replace the inferior quality, unsafe gravity cast Chinese wheels and crappy OEM tires on our Hyperlite XLR. Upon purchase of the XLR, we immediately bought a set of five so that we could run the Michelin RIB tire at 80psi. No "China Bomb" blow-outs, no problems. Everyone should do this for safety and piece of mind. These wheels should be industry standard!


Comments
One year later we are still enjoying the quality and piece of mind these wheels have delivered Along with the Michelin tires, we have yet to have any failures at all. 3500 mile trip to Fort Worth and back...no problems. The Dexstar wheels not only are performing perfectly, they still have a factory-fresh appearance due to in my opinion quality construction and quality finishing. They still look new! These wheels are the best and they allow us to use the best tires. Very pleased with the Dexstar wheel.

A year later, we are very happy with these wheels. We put Maxxus 8008 trailer tires on them and, in addition to being a very sturdy wheel, they look great.

Another year gone by, the wheels still look great and are working out great on our travel trailer.

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I bought these wheels for my 16’ camper trailer and they look great. They were well packed with plenty of paper for cushioning and they arrived without any chips or damage. I have yet to install them but I’m sure they’ll be fine. They did not come with stems but I’m sure my tire place will install them. Good value, so far.


Comments
These wheels were just what the doctor ordered for my 16’ Scamp. Perfect fit and no troubles so far.

Only place online I know of to get black 8 lug steel wheels. Put 5 of these on my all black dump trailer with brand new chrome lug nuts and they look NASTY! They are also rated for the heavy weight I need unlike some other knock offs out there. Long time Etrailer customer here and they have so much selection compared to anyone else they keep sucking me back in!

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I purchased a set of four new wheels and associated tires for my trailer, replacing the stock cast aluminum originals. The wheels have a great appearance and of good construction. The powder coat finish a must for long term corrosion protection. One of the four wheels experienced crack whil on the maiden voyage, damaged the tire and required a replacement. This purchase is for the replacement wheel. The damaged wheel will be returned to e-trailer and hopefully credited for purchase price and shipping of this replacement unit, pursuant to the OEM (Dexstar) warranty

Just what I needed. The guide provided on your website allowed me to order with confidence. With two day delivery, I already have a tire mounted on the wheel and is ready to install on my camper. Still waiting for my RV dealer to get back with me on parts availability. Couldn’t be happier.

These fit my 67 Airstream with torsion axles, upgrading from 15 to 16 inch wheels. Powder coating is very good. Tires have basically been sitting while camper is being overhauled; have not lost air pressure. Apparently very good quality wheels. Checked for runout by spinning and watching, not super precision test, but saw no runout spinning by hand.

I needed a spare wheel for my trailer, and this one is perfect. It's an exact match to what is on the trailer, maybe even heavier construction than the other wheels.

  • Replacement Wheel for 2004 Rockwood 1640LTD Pop Up with Higher Weight Capacity
    The Dexstar trailer wheel part # AM20149 that you referenced does have the 1,520 lb weight capacity that you are wanting. This does use the larger valve stem hole diameter but you can use the Americana Metal valve stems part # AM20906 which can actually fit both sizes.

  • Would the Americana Wheel part # AM20149 work as a Replacement for an Econoline Trailer Wheel
    Most likely yes, but there are a few things you will need to check. I pulled up the wheel you are looking at and it has a 5 lug bolt pattern but it does not say if it is a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern like the Americana Wheel part # AM20149. You will need to confirm this. I attached an FAQ on this for you to check out. I was not able to determine the wheel width of if it had an offset.

  • Can Trailer Tires be Moved Further Away from the Trailer Frame
    A wheel with an offset has the mounting surface off center so that the tire will be either closer to the trailer or further away depending on if it is a negative or positive offset. Positive offset means that the tire will be CLOSER to the trailer. Negative offset means that the tire will be FURTHER from the trailer. It sounds like you want a negative offset to move the tires a little further away from the trailer. But if the current set up is not making contact with the frame then...
