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"

Stamped made in USA, but looks like made elsewhere. Came with dings as though it was just one of thousands in a warehouse. And my made in China stock wheel didn't have grooves or lines in the metal not just a flaw in the paint. But, for the price it IS worth it.


Comments
Dexstar wheels are exclusively made in the USA but customer service will reach out about the grooves.

I bought a new boat trailer which did not come with a spare. Nobody locally had the wheel I needed. I found etrailer.com on line and placed the order and was notified shortly after that the order was filled and the shipping was upgraded at no additional charge. Wheel arrived on time. Great service! Thanks.

The wheels run smooth and stopped the bouncing on my tandem axel boat trailer. The only bad thing about the order is in the picture the wheels look silver, but when I got them they are a dull gray, and they don't match the chrome hubs and lug nuts I ordered. The information videos about getting the correct size wheels helped and I received my order in less than a week.

Although it's not an exact match for my original wheels on my Bass Tracker Pro Team 185 trailer, it's close and makes a perfect spare. Glad I bought it!

First rim was a swing and a miss, I'm Not sure how a bent rim can be shipped as it was Not a UPS issue the box was Not damaged or the paint on the rim chipped etc. I understand things happen but we are talking a rim here, pretty simple item to check quality before shipping. That begin said They were Awesome in shipping me out a new one right away and sending me a return shipping for the damaged item. I would Definitely purchase from E-Trailer again!!! Thank You!!!

  • 13 Inch Directional Trailer Wheel for 175/80-13 Size Tire
    Looking at your picture we have a wheel that's close but I'm not sure it's exact. Directional wheels aren't all that common on trailres but we have part # AM20259 which is a Dexstar steel wheel with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. It looks very similar but I'm not sure if it's exact. The wheel's capacity is 1,360 pounds and it has a 3.19 pilot hole. Those specs might help you match it up to yours as well. It is a 13 inch diameter wheel so it'll fit your 175/80-13 size tires for sure.

  • Recommendation For Spare Wheel 13" x 4-1/2" Rim With 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern
    Our highest rated wheel for a 13" x 4-1/2" Rim with 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern is the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel, # AM20245. This has a nice rust resistant black powder coat finish, is made in the USA and meets DOT standards. This has a capacity of 1,725 lbs. and makes for a great option for a spare tire wheel for a trailer. With over 1,100 customers providing feedback, this option currently has a 4.8 rating.

  • How Do I Determine What Wheel is Needed for 5X8 Trailer
    That depends first on your bolt pattern. The item you linked to, # AM20259 is a 13" wheel with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. You need to identify if you have a 4 or 5 lug pattern on your trailer.

  • Correct Tire Size for 13" Dexstar Steel Directional Trailer Wheel
    The Dexstar Steel Directional Trailer Wheel part # AM20259 is 4.5" wide so the max tire size that should be used is a 175, the Karrier ST175/80R13 Radial Trailer Tire part # AM10199 is what I recommend.

  • 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.

  • How To Select Replacement Wheels For Trailer
    Since Trailstar manufactured so many different size and style trailers it would be difficult to tell you what size wheel you need as a replacement. I have attached a helpful article you can check out that explains how to determine the wheel bolt pattern you have on your trailer so you can make sure you choose a wheel that works with the hubs on your trailer. The 13-inch wheels we offer have bolt patterns of 4 on 4, 4 on 9.44, and 5 on 4-1/2 inches. Once you have determined the bolt...

  • 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...

  • What Does Rim of Dexstar Wheel and Tire AM32386 Look Like and 205/75R15 Tire Recommendation
    The wheel that comes with the part# AM32386 is a Dexstar directional wheel like the part # AM20259. I attached a picture of what the rim looks like. For tires I really like the Taskmaster brand since they have the higher speed ratings. Most trailer tires are limited to around 65 mph but the Taskmaster tires like the # TTWTRTM2057515C, which is the size you need, is rated for up to 81 mph.

  • Is there a Left and a Right for Directional Trailer Wheels
    Oddly enough for the directional trailer wheels we carry such as # AM20259 there isn't a left and a right. There is just the one so if you were to use 2 of them the appearances of them would not match unless you had more than one axle. Then they would match but only on the side you were looking at. I spoke with our resident tire and wheel guru and he said that trailer directional wheels are just for looks and not function so there isn't a left and a right.

  • Replacement Trailer Tires for Size A78x13ST
    The replacement size for the A78x13ST original tire is the ST175/80-13. The overall diameter is 24.1 inches and the overall width is 7 inches. The difference for the letters in the sizes you mentioned is Load Range. The best tire option we have for your size is the part # LHWL101 which is the size you need in the Load Range of C. This has a weight capacity of 1,360 lbs at 50 psi and a speed rating of 75 mph. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Availability of 175/80-13 Trailer Tire Mounted on Gray Powder Coat Rim
    We don't offer any gray powder coated wheels, but if silver powder coat would come close enough to gray for your liking, we have a solution or tow that would work for you. Since we don't carry a 175/80-13 Load Range D tire mounted on a silver rim, you could purchase the wheel and tire separately. The bias ply tire is part # AM1ST77, or for a radial tire, choose # AM10210. For wheels, you can choose from a 13 x 4-1/2 inch silver powder coated modular wheel with a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern,...

  • Recommended Wheel for ST175/80R13 Tire on Haulmark Trailer
    A 175/80-13 tire like yours fits a 13" wheel with a rim width of 4-1/2", 5", or 5-1/2". If you are replacing just one wheel, I recommend finding the width of your current wheels so everything matches and you don't have any issues. The other thing you will need to find out is your bolt pattern. It is likely that you have a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern but you also may have a 4 on 4 bolt pattern. If you need a 13" x 4-1/2" rim with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern I recommend the # AM20259. For the...

  • Where Dexstar Wheels and Kenda Karrier Trailer Tires are Manufactured
    The Dexstar # AM20259 13 x 4-1/2 Directional Trailer Wheel you referenced is made in the USA, but the # AM10210 ST175/80R-13 Karrier Radial Trailer Tire is manufactured in Taiwan or Mainland China. Though it's manufactured overseas, the tire meets all Department of Transportation safety standards. These days, you'd be pretty hard pressed to find a trailer tire that isn't manufactured overseas.

  • Can I Use a ST175/80D13 Tire with the Dexstar Steel Directional Trailer Wheel
    Yes. You can use a tire like the Loadstar ST175/80D13 Bias Trailer Tire - Load Range D # AM1ST77, which is the size you specified on the Dexstar Steel Directional Trailer Wheel - 13" x 4-1/2" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 - Silver # AM20259. This is the perfect size tire for use with this Dexstar wheel. I've linked review videos of these parts for you to have a look at, as well.
