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"

Got the wrong parts or the review would be excellent. Called customer service and they exceeded my expectations. Mistakes happen to all of us. The character of a person or company is how they respond to the mistake. I really expected the worse and got the best. They shipped the correct part quickly and arranged for the return of the wrong parts. Great value also. Etrailer has a new loyal customer.

Fast courteous service. Purchased a trailer wheel so I could have a spare tire for my enclosed trailer. Now I can rest easy knowing I have a spare tire in case of an emergency. I would recommend etrailer.com to anyone. Thanks again!

Had one rim bend on my first load, well under rated weight. Had another rip from the hub during same load. I tossed the other two and wouldn't suggest this garbage for a car trailer, maybe a light duty utility but not anything over 3 tons.

It was plain black mini mod wheels, so nothing fancy but was exactly as advertised. Customer follow up was on the mark.....always wanted to know if everything was going well. Tacking info was accurate and shipping charges very reasonable. Wish I could buy pickup wheels here too.

Wheels came by promise date and were by all means better than expected, great quality on the powder coat. Black wheels with chrome centers and lugs make the trailer pop.

Wheels showed up on time, packed in box very well to avoid damage. Look great, had tires installed and balanced, technician stated that steel wheels usually aren't that round/straing, but these were excellent. Installed on camper, look great. Very happy with purchase and quality so far.

Ask the Experts about this Dexstar Trailer Tires and Wheels

  • Are 5 or 6 Inch Wheels Better for 205/75-15 Size Tires
    A 205/75-15 size tire can actually fit on a wheel from 5 to 6-1/2 inches wide. With that being said, it's generally better to go with the thinnest wheel your tire fits on because that puts the weight on the wheel in the most vertical position so a 5 inch is marginally better than a 6 inch for your tires. Another thing to make note of is your bolt pattern. All of our 15 inch wheels that have a 6-lug bolt pattern are 6 inches wide. If you have a 5-lug, most likely a 5 on 4-1/2 pattern,...

  • Availability Of 15" Trailer Wheels With 5 On 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern
    It sounds like you are looking for 15" wheels with the 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. We have quite a few wheels that fit this description, but out of them I recommend taking a look at the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel - 15" x 5" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 in Black # AM20440, Silver # AM20537, or White # AM20551. If you can tell me which tire size you are planning on using I would be happy to make sure the wheels mentioned are the correct width for your application. I included a link to...

  • What is the Offset of Dexstar Steel Mini Mod 15x5, 5 on 4-1/2 Trailer Wheel AM20440
    That is correct. Trailer wheel # AM20440 has a zero offset meaning the mounting surface is right in the middle of the wheel. This wheel is a 15 x 5 inch with 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. It has a 2,150 pound capacity.

  • Recommended 5 on 5 Bolt Pattern Wheels and Tires for 7K Tandem Axle Trailer
    If at all possible, it's best to stick as close as possible to the wheel/tire size recommended by the trailer manufacturer because that's how the trailer was designed but there IS some flexibility there. We don't offer a higher rated tire than a load range C (1820 lb per tire) mounted on a 5 on 5 bolt pattern wheel, but you could purchase the wheel and tires separately and have them mounted locally if you wish. I'd recommend going with a 15x5 rim like part # AM20428 which have a zero...

  • Can the PSI Rating of the Dexstar Rim # AM20440 be Exceeded Safely
    The Dexstar Rim # AM20440 has a surprisingly low psi rating when compared to most trailer rims. Even though you would most likely be fine to inflate your tires to the 65 psi rating they call for I cannot safely recommend this. But I will say that if you do decide to exceed the psi rating for the wheel make sure you have valve stems that are capable of the higher capacity like the # AM20906 as typically the psi capacity for a wheel is limited by the valve stem.

  • Trailer Tire Size and Wheel Size Compatibility
    The Dexstar 15 x 5-Inch Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20440 can accept a tire width up to 205mm, meaning a tire in size ST205/75-15. This rim has a shipping weight of 17-lbs. A tire of size 225/75-15 is too wide for this rim; this tire size requires a 15 x 6-inch rim like # 560555SWA or # AM20539. Please note these wheels use a 6-lug bolt pattern, not the 5-on-4-1/2 as on # AM20440. I linked an article on trailer tire sizing that may be of interest to you. It shows various trailer tire...

  • Spare 15 and 16 inch Rim Recommendation for a Trailer
    Your first wheel has a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern and your second one has a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern. For the 15 inch wheel the part # AM20440 would be a match to what you have and has a great price. For the 16 inch wheel we have the # F2519166060 which would fit and has a great price as well. I've linked a page to help with all the available options.

  • What Size of Tire is Recommended for the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20440
    A 335 series tire will be a little over 13 inches in width. The Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20440 that you referenced is only 5 inches wide so it would not work for a tire that wide. The narrowest tire size this rim would fit is a 205 series tire like part # AM10245 that is 205/75R15.

  • What is Backspacing of Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20440
    The backspacing of the Dexstar trailer wheel part # AM20440 is 3 inches since the width is 5 inches and you have to add in 1 inch for the wheel lip and then divide by two.

  • Parts Needed to Add Electric Drum Brakes to Existing Trailer
    We can help you put together the parts you'll need to add electric drum brakes to a trailer. A great starting point is the linked article that explains everything you need to keep in mind. You'll need to have or install brake mounting flanges on your axle so that you can mount brakes. Make sure the brakes are rated appropriately for your axle capacity and that they use the same mounting pattern. You'll choose a matching left- and right-hand brake. You'll also need hub/drum assemblies...

  • What Bolt Pattern Does the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20440 Fit
    The Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20440 that you referenced is designed to fit a bolt pattern of 5 on 4-1/2 inches. To determine if your bolt pattern matches this wheel measure from the center of one axle stud to the center of the one right next to it. If that measurement is 2-5/8 inches this wheel would match up. For a replacement matching tire in the same size as what you have you would want the part # AM10245.

  • Would the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel Fit a Trailer that Has a 5 Lug Bolt Pattern
    The # AM20440 is a 15 inch diameter wheel that has a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt patter so technically yes it would bolt up to your trailer as long as it has the same bolt pattern (most likely it does). It will not work with your current tire size though as it would require a 15 inch tire like the part # AM10245 which is a Load Range D radial tire that is sized 205/75R15. I attached a review video for this as well.

  • Which Holds Up Better on Trailer Wheel Powder Coat or Acrylic Paint
    Powder coating is widely considered to be superior to acrylic paint in terms of resistance to chipping, scratching, and color retention. For a wheel application powder coat will definitely look better as well as hold up better than paint. Based on that the finish of the Dexstar part # AM20440 would hold up better than the Vesper part # MX34FR.

  • How To Stop Off-Road Trailers From Blowing 235/75-R15 Tires
    I do have an option for you but a higher load range won't do you any good. The issue is that you're running radial tires which are great for highway but perform poorly off-road. I'd recommend simply switching to a bias ply, the Kenda ST225/75D15 Bias Trailer Tire part # AM1ST97. This way, you don't have to worry about fender clearance either as it's usually not as simple as just raising the fender.

  • What Is The Strongest Coating For Trailer Wheels?
    Given that you are not going to be going in water like a boat trailer where a galvanized or aluminum painted wheel is ideal, a powder coated steel wheel like the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel - 15" x 5" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 - Black Powder Coat # AM20440 is going to have the strongest finish in regards to corrosion, fading, and peeling due to the powder coating being baked on, and what is most commonly used on vehicle wheels due to its strength and durability.

You would be better suited with a powder coated wheel like the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel - 15" x 5" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 - Black Powder Coat # AM20440, White Powder Coat # AM20551, or Silver Powder Coat # AM20436.

  • Can I Change Trailer Tire Sizes Without Changing Wheels
    I'll start this off by saying that you'll want to make sure that you have sufficient clearance from your trailer frame to determine if you can upgrade in tire size from 205/75r15 to 225/75r15; there is roughly 1.2" difference between the two tires but when you take into consideration the 3" to 4" required to allow for suspension clearance it may become an issue. Additionally, you're correct in assuming that upgrading to a 225/75r15 tire would required upgrading to a wider wheel-which it...

Silver-powder-coat finish is offered in other sizes: part # AM20363 is a 14 x 5-1/2-inch size and part # AM20537 is 15 x 6-inches. The silver powder coat is currently not offered in your size.

  • Differences Between Dexstar Mini-Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20537 and # AM20440
    Other than the color and the width of the rim, the two wheels you mentioned are constructed of powder coated steel and feature the same design. The silver 15x6 wheel, part # AM20537 has the larger capacity, at 2050 lb, while the black 15x5 wheel, part # AM20440 has a 2150 lb capacity.

  • Black Dexstar Wheel for Trailer that is 15 inch Diameter and 5 inch Wide
    I have a similar option that is black from Dexstar that matches the same specs and dimensions but it's a mini mod style which has small circles on the rim instead of triangular spokes with the # AM20440. I think the mod style looks better than the spokes but that's just personal preference. I also checked to see if other manufacturers we carry have a black spoke wheel but they do not either. I attached a review video for the # AM20440 for you to check out as well.

  • Center Plug Recommendations for the Americana Aluminum Split Spoke Trailer Wheel # AM22647
    Either the Americana Trailer Wheel Center Cap # AM90175 you referenced or the Trailer Wheel Center Cap # 319EZ-SS would work well as a center cap for the Americana Aluminum Split Spoke Trailer Wheel # AM20440 since they both are designed for pilot diameters of 3.19 like what the wheel has. The main difference between the two center caps is that the # AM90175 has a black plug in the center and the # LHCS102-SI60C has a chrome finish on the center plug.
