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"

Excellent web-site with everything one could need and plenty of help. I did have to change my order when I found out the tire I wanted didn’t come with the rim I wanted and I had to but them separate. I bought the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel - 12" x 4" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 - Black and, the Karrier S-Trail ST145/R12 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range E. I haven’t had them mounted yet.

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!

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 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.

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.

Ask the Experts about this Dexstar Trailer Tires and Wheels

  • Will a 4.80x12 Tire work on a Dexstar mini Mod Trailer Rim 5 on 4-1/2?
    A 4.80x12 trailer tire will work on the Dextar Mini Mod Rim 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern, # AM20153. Depending on what the primary use of the trailer will be, you will want to consider load range. The load range indicates the horizontal and sidewall strength of a tire. The load range letter correlates to the number of plies and load pressure in pounds per square inch (psi). The functional application would determine a recommendation, which I'd be happy to help you with. With the...

I have attached a helpful article that explains how to measure the bolt pattern to make sure you get the right one. I have also attached a link to the 12-inch wheels with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern.

  • High-Speed 4.80R12 Tire Recommendation for Motorcycle Coffin Trailer
    The best option for your current setup is the Taskmaster 4.80R12 Radial Trailer Tire # TT48012C as you noted due to the 81 mph speed rating. With that being said, it is never good to run tires faster than their speed rating because then you run the risk of overheating and possible tire failure so I can't really recommend going faster than 81 mph with this tire. The only option for a faster speed rating is to upgrade to something like the Goodyear Endurance # 724864519 (speed rating of 87...

  • Which Tires and Wheels to Replace 5.30-12 Tires and Wheels on 1999 Palomino Philly Pop-Up
    We've got just what you're looking for on the tire front, and a few different options you could use for wheels. To replace your 5.30-12 tire I recommend using the Taskmaster # TT53012C, which are a radial tire that's perfect for highway travel. These are a Load Range C tire with a 1,050-lbs per tire capacity, so they're rated for use on a pop-up with a GWVR of 2100-lbs.

  • Best Trailer Wheel That Will Fit A 4.80-12 Tire
    It sounds you are looking for a new trailer wheel for your 4.80-12 trailer tires. Your 13 inch is like just a 12 inch wheel, but you may be measuring the overall diameter. Trailer wheel diameter is actually measured from bead seat to bead seat rather than overall, so a 12 inch diameter wheel may look more like a 13 inch diameter wheel. I'm guessing your wheel bolt pattern is actually 5 on 4-1/2 because 5 on 4.25 is not a common trailer wheel bolt pattern. I've attached a help article on...

  • Why Does The Wheel My 4.80-12 Tire Is On Measure 13" In Diameter?
    It is definitely not common for a 12" tire like your 4.80-12 to be installed on a 13" wheel, but depending on where you measured the wheel it may look like a 13" wheel even though it is truly 12". If you take a look at the 30 second mark of the included video showing Jeff measuring the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel - 12" x 4" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 - Black # AM20153 you can see that to measure the diameter of the wheel you measure inside to inside of the bead seat, and not the outside...

    We can check off nearly all of those requirements for you with the Taskmaster Steel 8-Spoke Trailer Wheel # TTW240545WS1 which is a white wheel. Similarly, there is an option in black which meets all but one of your requirements. The Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel, # AM20153, has everything you want, minus the eight spokes. You may also want to take a look at the Aluminum HWT Series S5 Split Spoke Trailer Wheel - Black, # AM22319HWTB, which has five spokes and black highlights.

    I do have an option for you but the only radial tire option we have in a 5.30-12 is the Taskmaster 5.30R12 Radial Trailer Tire part # TT53012C which does not come pre-mounted. That said, we do have some great wheel options which you can add to your purchase such as the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel part # AM20153.
