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"

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (607 Customer Reviews)

Black powder coated, 15" steel trailer wheel features a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern and meets Department of Transportation standards.


After reading the reviews of other classic camper folks , I went ahead and ordered three of these wheels and baby moon caps. I am very happy with the end result. These are a great replacement for anyone building a teardrop trailer using a standard utility/landscape trailer base, or upgrading an older classic camper. Thank you. Ron

All is well and I still have and use all the products.

Arrived on time


Every thing arrived in good condition.
might want to consider a better package system.
The box was in ruff shape when it arrived.
I understand that it’s out of your hands when the shipping company gets it.
Other than that everything is good, and we are looking forward to getting the wheels on and head out on our adventures.


Good customer communication, even the package was delayed. I was notified when the delivery would be made.


The rim i received was a perfect match thank to your team


They Look GREAT!!


Wheels are very good quality. Paint is excellent. Very durable. These wheels are a great value!


Great product and service! I'm a returning customer and will continue to use etrailer in my future builds!


Very good quality of trailer rims.pilot hole2.62" which fit on Dexter 3500lb axle hub .
etrailer strongly recommend.


The quality of the wheel is excellent. However, the packaging was bad. No concern for the condition of the wheels. 2 steel wheels, packed in one cardboard box, with three pieces of Shipping paper. The wheels arrived with multiple scratches and chips. This isn't the first time that I've had Wheels arrive this way from your company.


Great wheel. Good quality. The difficult part is finding the right tire to go with it.


Had a very difficult time finding this wheel size - no luck at auto salvage yards or other web sites. E-trailer was the only source I could find.

Received wheel in 3 days.
However the warehouse associate picked the wrong wheel.
Contacted etrailer and they sent a return UPS label and shipped correct wheel immediately - it arrived within 2 days.

This error was handled very professionally and the way it was handled showed a high level of concern for customer satisfaction.


I ordered four Dexstar wheels with baby moons for our older trailer and couldn't be more pleased with the fit and quality. They arrived at my home with all the boxes in great shape and on time. I would recommend etrailer to anyone looking to purchase wheels for their trailer.


Great service, good prices and super fast shipping! I have bought a couple of trailer parts from and would highly recommend them to anyone! They were the only ones who stocked the wheel for my 1959 Shasta Airflyte camping trailer.


These wheels are just what I needed to get my travel trailer back on the road. Great price and they got here QUICK. Will definitely buy two more in the near future.


I got the rims mounted this morning and they look great. These were for an old trailer with a narrow backspace. Jesse went out of his way to get the special measurements I needed to make sure the rims would work. Great customer service!


Exactly as described. If you haven't ordered from E-trailer yet.....YOU SHOULD! Boxed and shipped quickly.


Great replacement wheel for my boat trailer...Fair price and fast shipping..A real pleasure to deal with....Thanks Bob


This is my 2nd set if rims, look nice with baby moon hub cap on my home built teardrop trailer


Hard time finding this item anywhere else. Etrailer had it and shipped in timely manner. Great to do business with


My order shipped early and arrived in perfect order. It was exactly what I ordered. 100% satisfied.


100% Customer service from start to finish!!! These guys will always have my business for all my trailer needs!!! Thank you!!!


The wheels shipped fast, were in sturdy packaging, and looked great. I was impressed about the paint/finish. What a quality product!


The wheels are of excellent quality and product was delivered ahead of schedule.


Great product well made. I bought 5 wheels and very happy. Oh GOOD PRICE. OH MADE IN THE U.S.A.

  • Will the Dexstar Conventional Steel Wheel # AM20404 Fit on a Miley Horse Trailer
    To determine if the Dexstar Conventional Steel Wheel, # AM20404, will fit on your Miley horse trailer, we will need some information about your current wheels. First, we need the bolt pattern of your current wheels. This wheel has a bolt pattern of 5 on 4-1/2. The bolt pattern is the number of bolts and the diameter of the circle that the bolts make. I have attached an FAQ on how to determine your bolt hole pattern for you to check out. The next factor to consider is the size of the...

  • Baby Moon Wheel Cap Recommendation For 14-Inch Trailer Wheel
    The baby moon wheel center cap we offer that would be a fit for your wheel is part # AM90086. This will work with 5-lug conventional wheels. The inside diameter of this wheel is 9-1/4 inches. You may want to take another measurement to make sure this wheel will work for you. This is the only baby moon wheel cap we offer and it is designed to fit 13, 14, and 15-inch wheels.

  • Can Karrier 20575R-15 Tires be Mounted on Dextar 15 by 5 Inch Rim
    The ST205/75R15 Karrier tire you referenced, # AM10244 can be successfully mounted to 15 inch diameter rims ranging from 5 to 6-1/2 inches wide, with 5-1/2 inches being the ideal. Since the width of the # AM20404 wheel is only 1/2 inch less than the ideal for that tire, the wheel and tire should work just fine together. If the width difference was than 1 inch or more narrower, the tire beads being squeezed together could conceivably narrow the tire surface that contacts the pavement,...

  • Baby Moon Hub Caps Fit on Conventional Steel Trailer Wheels
    It sounds like you are talking about a conventional steel wheel. These wheels have a raised section, see picture I have included, that a baby moon hub cap, # AM90086, will fit onto. There are different sizes available in the conventional steel wheels. To get the correct one I would need to know the bolt pattern, the width, and diameter you need. I have included a link that shows how to measure for bolt pattern.

  • What is Wheel Offset on Dexstar Conventional Steel Wheel with Offset, Part # AM20404
    Your understanding of the wheel offset is correct. With a positive 0.5 inch offset the wheel moves toward the trailer 1/2 inch, resulting in 2 inches of the wheel in front of the hub and 3 inches of the wheel behind the hub. (Negative offset would have the opposite result, moving the wheel outward away from the trailer.) I have included a photo of the wheel indicating this graphically. Yes, a 205/75/R15 radial automobile tire will fit this wheel, but this item is designed for use on a...

  • Will A Hub Cap Off a Passenger Car Fit on the Dexstar Conventional Steel Wheel # AM20404
    The measurement I got on the Dexstar Conventional Steel Wheel, # AM20404, out in our warehouse is approximately 10-3/8 inches for the diameter of the snap on locations for hub caps, see photo. If you measured directly across and not include the space for the hub cap snap on location the distance across is approximately 10-1/8 inches, so it sounds as if your passenger car hub cap will fit. If it was previously installed on a 15 inch rim the possibility is even greater. A word of warning...

  • Availability of a 15 inch Diameter 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern Trailer Rim w/ 2-3/4 Inch Pilot Diameter
    You can go with a wheel that uses a larger pilot diameter than your existing wheels as long as your wheels are lug centric. Lug centric wheels use the coned lug nuts to center the wheel or sometimes lug bolts, while hub centric wheels rely on a portion of the hub that extends through the pilot hole in the wheel to center the wheel. I've looked through all of our 15 inch rims with a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern, and none of them have a 2-3/4 inch bolt pattern. 3.19 inches is the most common,...

  • How to Pick Out Replacement Rims for a Trailer that Uses Wheel Bolts
    Since your trailer wheels use wheel bolts instead of lug nuts that means you have hub-centric wheels and hubs. What that means is that you need to get an exact measurement of the pilot diameter of the wheels you currently have and find ones with that exact same dimension and you would be good to go. The part # AM20404 has a pilot diameter of 2.62 inches. If that is what you have on your old wheels these would work as a replacement in that regard. These wheels also have a 5 on 4-1/2 inch...

  • Can Trailer Wheel # AM20404 Fit A Jeep Willys
    No, The Dexstar Conventional Steel Wheel with Offset # AM20404 will not work with your Willys Jeep. Trailer wheels and passenger car wheels are different. Trailer wheels are designed with different characteristics from vehicle wheels and their functions are different. Trailer wheels are optimized to handle vertical loads while passenger vehicle wheels are designed for cornering and stability. Another difference is the wheel offset. The offset refers to the location of a wheel's rim in relation...

It also matches the size and bolt pattern requirements you provided so there will be no issues in regards to fitting on the trailer.

  • Replacement 15 Inch Trailer Wheels with 5 on 5 Inch Bolt Pattern and ST205/75R13 Tires
    An ST205/75R15 will fit on rim widths measuring 5, 5-1/2, 6, or 6-1/2 inches. For that tire size already mounted on a steel wheel with a 5 on 5 bolt pattern take a look at # AM32409. I have also included a link to all of the wheels and tire/wheel combos that feature the 5 on 5 bolt pattern and can accept or has the ST205/75-15 tire.

  • Is the Dexstar Conventional Steel Wheel # AM20404 Available Unpainted
    All of the wheels we sell will have a finish on them to protect them from the elements. The wheel manufacturers do not offer the wheels unpainted. The Dexstar Conventional Steel Wheel, part # AM20404, you have referenced is a 15 inch diameter with a 5-inch width. It comes with the black powder coat finish. The same wheel in 14-inch would be the Dexstar Conventional Steel Wheel, part # AM20304. This is a 14 inch diameter wheel with width of 5-1/2 inches. It is also black powder coated.

  • Will Positive Offset on Black Trailer Wheels Move the Wheels Too Close to the Trailer
    The 1/2 inch positive offset of trailer wheel # AM20404 (which is a 15 inch and not a 13 inch)means that the wheels would be closer to the trailer frame than a model with zero or negative offset. From the mounting surface to the outer edge of the wheel closest to the trailer will be approximately 3-1/2 inches. On a 13 inch you would use # AM20214. Overall it is approximately 5-1/2 inches wide. It also has a 1/2 inch positive offset. That means from the mounting surface to the outer edge...

  • Upgrading from a 14 inch Trailer Wheel to a 15 inch Trailer Wheel
    So you have 14 inch rim that has a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern and are looking to go to a 15 inch rim. For that you would want the part # AM32424 as it has a ST205/75R15 tire mounted to it which has a 1,820 lbs at 50 psi capacity. The dimensions of this are 8.1 inches in width and 27.3 inches in diameter. You will need to compare that to your trailer to determine if it would fit. I attached a review video for this wheel/tire for you to check out as well.

  • Trailer Tire Recommendation to Fit a 15 inch Diameter 5 inch Wide Trailer Rim
    A 225/75-15 trailer tire would not be recommended for a 5 inch wide trailer rim like what you referenced. This tire size is designed to fit 6 to 7 inch wide rims. For a similar tire size that would fit a 5 inch wide rim you would want a 205/75-15 tire size like part # AM10245.

  • Will an ST205/75D15 Tire Fit on a 15 x 5 Inch Wheel
    Yes an ST20575D15 tire will fit on a 15 x 5 inch wheel # AM20404. Any given tire size has a range of wheels it will fit. For this particular tire size it will fit 15 x 5, 5-1/2, 6, or 6-1/2 inch wheels. A 15 x 6 inch wheel would be more ideal, # AM20504.

  • Black 15 Inch Wheels with 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern and 2-5/8 Inch Center Hole for Cronkite Trailer
    We have a 15x5 inch, # AM20404, and a 15x6 inch, # AM20504. Each of these wheels has a 2.62 pilot hole. Each has the 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. And each has a 1/2 inch positive offset. So the mounting surface is closer to the outside of the wheel moving the tire and wheel closer to the trailer frame. I have linked video reviews of both wheels for you. Based on the measurements I believe you need the 15x6 inch version, # AM20504.

  • Can the Dexstar Conventional Steel Wheels Be Used on a Vehicle
    The Dexstar Conventional Steel Wheel part # AM20404 is primarily designed for trailers but if the offset (+0.5"), bolt pattern (5 on 4-1/2"), dimensions (15" diameter x 5" wide), and capacity (1,820 lbs) will work with your vehicle then I don't see any reason they could not be use. For a stylish finish, I recommend adding the Americana Baby Moon Trailer Wheel Center Cap part # AM90086.
