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 - AM20165 Review

Today, we are going to review Part Number AM20165. This is the Americana Silver 12 Inch by 4 Inch Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel With Offset and a 5 on 4 1/2 Inch Bolt Pattern. This wheel is a sturdy steel construction. Has excellent corrosion resistance because of the silver powder coat finish that is over an e-coat primer on the front and back of the wheel. This wheel is the mini mod design and by that, it means it has the round holes all the way around as the design. This is a high quality wheel that meets the Department of Transportation's specifications. Few specs on this.

The rim diameter which is measured inside to inside is 12 inches and the width is 4 inches. Now they are both measured inside to inside just to show you. Basically when you are measuring the diameter is when a tire is seeded on this wheel, the beads will seat right here and that's the distance you are going to be measuring. You don't want to measure outside edge to outside edge. You'll go inside to inside and as you can see, it's 12 inch diameter and on the width again, inside to inside and you'll see it's 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.

If you want to measure the bolt pattern on a wheel that has an odd number of lugs, in this case 5, you just pick one of the holes, then measure directly across to a hole right across from it. Start from this hole and go to either one of these but the trick is to measure it correctly, you need to measure from the center of the starting hole to the outer edge of the hole you go to. We're going to go this one to this one. If we put a ruler on it, center to outer edge. Here we go.

You can see it's right at . get my hand out of the way there . 4 1/2 inches. It's 5 lug 4 1/2 inch bolt pattern. It does use a wheel lug size of 1/2 inch by 20.

The pilot diameter which is the large hole here in the center wheel, goes over the hub on your trailer, that diameter will measure 3.19 inches. This does have a weight capacity on the wheel of 1520 pounds. Now this wheel does have a negative offset which means this mounting surface right here. Normally a trailer wheel this mounting surface would be right in line with the center of the wheel. In this case, that would be a zero offset. In this case, this mounting surface actually is moved a half an inch to the back of the wheel which will bring the wheel and tire out from the trailer. If you measured this mounting from the center line it would be a 1/2 inch negative offset. That should do it for the review on Part Number AM20165, The Americana Silver 12 Inch by 4 Inch Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel with the Offset and the 5 on 4 1/2 inch Bolt Pattern. .

Thank you for such a great experience. My packages arrived 2 days before the estimate, and I had the wheels and tires mounted and aired up 15 minutes after they arrived. I just put them on my trailer this morning. They look great!

Exactly as described! Quick shipping! Excellent quality! I already have tires mounted and the tires and rims mounted on the trailer! The trailer has 8” rims I needed bigger ones for highway travel! These fit the bill!

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


The new wheels are beautiful. The best part is they are made in the U.S.A.!
Two gripes:
1. One of the wheels showed up with a couple minor scratches on them. Not ideal but given they are trailer wheels and I am on a time line to get racing, I didn't want to go through the process of exchanging it.
2. I wish they offered more options for colors and maybe a chrome or polished aluminum.

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 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


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.

The rims were as advertised. Was nice to find the correct size (width rim) when most available galvanized rims are on the minimum width size for a 205/75 tire size.

Thanks for checking back with me , as you can see the 1998 trailer where is desperately in need of new tires,rims & fenders very please with the service receive parts in a reasonable manner time replaced also the original factory hubs with new true ride electric brakes, had one half-inch chrome wheel lug nut not fit on the stud check back with sale was great to work with them replaced with new one very pleased with the results received within two days also learning by experience using Grease tightening down chrome nuts on this way it did not cause rust to appear on the Chrome edge. Replaced many parts on my other trailers please with the etrailer products thanks again.

I bought these to use temporarily, but when installed on the trailer we liked them better than the wheel that came with the trailer.

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 was sent a one year anniversary from etrailer for a review and I went ahead and purchased two more rims for our trailer fleet. I was very happy on how quick they shipped. Its hard to find the 8-lug white rims in any of the trailer stores in Houston and I'm glad I can rely on etrailer for avaliabilty and quick shipping.

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Very quick and friendly service. I could not figure out how to get my tax exemption, so I ordered product. Sent email and got response very quickly and send information they needed and got my refund of taxes the same day I got delivery. Will recommend and use again.

Ordered 6 rims for my triple axle toyhauler to upgrade from trailer tires to LT tires. Rim have been perfect with zero signs of rust...great powdercoating!

Attached pic shows 2 of the new 16" rims installed with LT tires compared to the old black 15" rims with a trailer tires.

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I was looking for inexpensive 16" nice looking wheels to replace my 15s on my enclosed car hauler so I could upgrade the tires. They shipped quick, were true round and held balance weights with no problems. After a year, the finish still looks nice. I am not disappointed.




by:

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I received the wheels…they were both in one big box(way too big for the wheels) with on piece of cardboard stuck between them. No other packing of any kind and metal box staples poking through all sides. As you could imagine both wheels are very scratched. I just spent 45 mins taping and painting my brand new wheels. I have not mounted them yet so I cannot speak of the wheels other than the very disappointing packing efforts!

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.
