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"

Brittany is an awesome representative of etrailer. Bravo!!

etrailer was one of the few places in the country that had this vintage trailer rim…and it came the next day. Thanks so much.




by:

After searching on line for a vintage Dexter "star" rim one was found at etrailer.com. I contacted them to confirm the size, appearance and general configurations of the rim as it had to match four other rims. The people at etrailer.com were very helpful and where able to answer all the questions. I also forwarded photographs of the existing wheels with dimensions and Salvatore M. immediately confirmed selection of the rim was correct. We had many communications back and forth and etrailer.com was knowledgeable and professional. Delivery was as noted and the rim has been mounted with new rubber tire and has been tested on the trailer. For information the double axle trailer was fabricated by my dad, who was a boiler maker, back in 1981. It has a tubular steel frame and 1/8" checker plate deck with removable side capable of supporting 10,000 lbs. I am very thankful etrailer.com was able to provide the new rim for the trailer's spare tire.

I've been looking for a spare wheel for my 1970 vintage camper and this is what I needed




by:

We were very pleased to find this obsolete wheel so we could have a spare tire for our 1983 Fleetwood travel trailer. Service from etrailer.com. Was good and the wheel arrived on schedule.




by:

I brought this rim because I couldn't find it anywhere else. The rim worked perfectly, thank you very much.




by:

I have an early 1970's Prowler travel trailer with wheels that have a large open circle pattern vs the X type pattern of this wheel. This wheel fits perfectly albeit a different look than the others. Can't complain since it is almost impossible to find these wheels. Excellent service and quick delivery...very satisfied.




by:

For 8 years I searched everywhere on the internet, in junkyards and had made phone calls across the nation looking for this vintage rim. Thankfully, etrailer had exactly what I was looking for! I placed the order on a Wednesday night, received free shipping and the rim arrived Monday afternoon! So excited that we can finally take our vintage camper on the road again!




by:

Kind of pricey but excellent quality, professional sales staff, prompt delivery.
I think that covers all of the bases.

Would definitely check with etrailer.com first in the future.




by:

I could not find the wheel I needed any where! Some one suggested etrailer and you had just what I needed!
Thank you!

Ps Customer service was especially good!
Brenda




by:

Was exactly what I wanted. Is identicle to wheels I already have on my trailer. I was very pleased with your excellent service. Would definitely shop with you again if the need arises. I would reccommend your site to others. Thank You, Dean




by:

Fit perfect, nice finish, decent packaging, good customer service. If you're reading this review you know how hard to find this rim is. I'm always skeptical buying from a new place online but my experience with etrailer was great.




by:

Thanks again Jamie excellent service




by:

Just what I needed! I have a vintage RV, and have been looking for a spare rim for over 2 years, then I found this site and was amased that you had it in stock! Thanks for the fast and reliable shipping! If I need any other rims, you will be the first stop on my list!




by:

Product is great and the service I received from etrailer was superb! Thanks for a great experience.




by:

Very nice help from Mariah. Very informative and knowledgeable about etrailer's products.




by:

I received the wheel in 5 days and it fits my trailer just fine.




by:

Everything was perfect, but the rim seemed to quite pricey...




by:

Mrs. Vicki was the best. She got my item to me in two days. The best transaction I ever have done by phone. Thanks so much Vicki. Paul

  • How to Measure Bolt Pattern of 4 Lug Wheels?
    In order to properly measure your bolt pattern, you'll need to remove the hubcap and then measure from the center of one bolt hole to the center of its opposite to determine the diameter of the lug pattern on your wheels. The most common bolt patterns for 4 lug wheels are 4 on 4, 4 on 4-1/2 and 4 on 9.44. It's not impossible that your wheels have that bolt pattern, but I can't say I've ever seen that size. If you do have 4 on 9.44 wheels, we have a few options like the Dexstar Vintage Steel...

  • Is the Dexstar Vintage Steel Wheel 15 x 6 Rim Sold As A Set
    The Dexstar Vintage Steel Wheel part # AM20501 is sold individually. If you need all four wheels then you'd have to order a quantity of four.

  • Solution for Older Haynes Horse Trailer that Would Need New Wheels/Hubs in Future
    We do offer replacement vintage style wheels like what you sent in a picture of with wheels like the part # AM20501 and we used to have hubs that fit this wheel but due to the age and demand we no longer carry them as they've been non-standard for quite some time. Axle replacement isn't that difficult or expensive so if the trailer is really a great fit for what you need I wouldn't let that be a determining factor. That said if you were in a position to need new hubs that is the route you'd...

  • How to Determine if the Dexstar Vintage Steel Wheel with 4 on 9.44 Bolt Pattern Will Fit a Trailer
    It seems unlikely that a trailer made in 1984 would have the vintage steel wheels like # AM20501 on it. This is not a very common wheel. But it is still possible so to determine if it is a fit you will need to measure the bolt pattern of the wheels on your trailer. This wheel has a 4 on 9.44 bolt pattern. That means from the center of one bolt hole to the center of the one across from it measures 9.44 inches. This wheel also has a 5 millimeter positive offset meaning the mounting surface...

  • Would Dexstar Vintage Steel Wheel # AM20501 be Correct Wheel for Trailer
    If your trailer has the vintage style offset wheels like what the part # AM20501 has then this would be what you need. Without seeing a picture or knowing more info about what you have though it's hard for me to say for certain.

  • How to Determine Wheel Bolt Pattern that the Dexstar Vintage Steel Rim part # AM20501 Would Fit
    The Dexstar Vintage Steel Rim part # AM20501 that you referenced has a bolt pattern of 4 on 9.44 inches. If the measurement you took was from the center of one wheel stud to the center of the one directly across from it and it was 9.44 inches then the # AM20501 would be the correct rim.

  • Trailer Wheel Recommendation for Older Trailer with Utility Style Hub
    Can you measure the bolt pattern of the rim? We have the vintage wheel part # AM20501 which has a bolt pattern of 4 on 9.44 inches which seems pretty close to what you have. But you'd want to measure first to be sure. Measure across the center of the wheel from bolt hole center to bolt hole center. If that is 9.44 inches this wheel will mount up and work great.

  • Wheel for Spare 225/75-15 Tire on Vintage 1970 Cree Camper
    The correct wheel for the 225/75-15 tire on your Vintage 1970 Cree Camper is the Dexstar Vintage Steel Wheel - 15" x 6" Rim # AM20501. This is a silver wheel with a 4 on 9.44 bolt pattern. I have also attached a helpful article that lists trailer tire sizes and what rims each size will fit.

  • What Measurements are Needed to Replace a Vintage Drum?
    To start with, you will need to pull off one of the hubs to figure out which bearings you need. Once it is off, you will need to measure the inner diameters of both your inner and outer bearing. This should be done with calipers as it does need to be as precise as possible. There can also be numbers on the bearings themselves, but these can wear off over time. Once you have your bearings figured out, you will need to measure the depth and diameter of the drum. As you will be doing a full...

  • Is There a Steel Block Behind the Dexstar Vintage Steel Wheel Attaching it to the Hub
    The only thing that comes with the Dexstar Vintage Steel Wheel w/ +5 mm Offset - 15" x 6" Rim - 4 on 9.44 - Silver # AM20501 is the wheel itself. The silver star-pattern style is designed to fit on older trailers. The only thing behind the rim will be the hub it is attaching to. I have attached a video review which shows both sides of the wheel for your reference.

  • 15 Inch Dexstar Vintage Steel Wheel
    The plate you are referring to on your trailer is a hub and can be replaced to add a standard hub with a 4 or 5 bolt pattern. For this vintage style wheel we no longer have replacement hub assemblies. You would just need to pull the hub off and get the size of the bearings so we could find something that matches your axle. If the measurement from the center of one wheel stud to the center of the one directly across from it is 9.44 inches then the # AM20501 would be the correct rim for...

  • Spare ST225/75R15 Trailer Tire for Older Camper
    If you just need a ST225/75R15 spare tire the Karrier ST225/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire # AM10251 is the best option. The only issue is that this size tire only fits on certain size wheels (rims), which are 15" x 6", 15" x 6-1/2", and 15" x 7". So if you only need the spare and your current wheel or rim is one of the aforementioned sizes you are all set. If you need a tire and wheel combo, it gets a little more difficult because the only 15 inch wheel with a 4-bolt pattern that a size ST225/75R15...

  • Replacement Trailer Wheel for a 1984 Prowler Camper with 13 Inch Wheels
    The Dexter vintage wheel, # AM20501, has a bolt pattern of 4 on 9.44 inches. That means that there are 4 bolt holes and they measure 9.44 inches from the center of one to the center of the hole across from it. It is also 15 inches in diameter so it may not be the correct wheel for your 1984 Prowler. If you have a 13 inch wheel with the 4 on 9.44 bolt pattern and it is 4-1/2 inches wide from bead seat to bead seat with a 1/2 inch positive offset then you would use # AM20208. I have also...

  • Replacement Vintage 4 Lug 13 inch Trailer Rim Recommendation
    Most likely what you would need is the part # AM20208 but you would need to measure first. You will need to measure from the opposite sides of the wheel bolt holes like in the picture I attached. If that measurement is 9.44 inches this rim would fit and work well for you.

  • Recommendation for a Replacement Wheel for 1973 Prowler Travel Trailer
    Good news either wheel will work for you. If you are trying to just replace one wheel you would want to check to see what size you have on the other side of your trailer and match them up, but if you are replacing both then you can choose either the # AM20501 or the # AM20395. Both will accommodate your tire size of ST205-75D15. I have linked our Help Article on Tire Sizing for your convenience.

  • Replacement Trailer Wheel for Vintage Trailer with 4 on 9.44 Bolt Pattern and 8 Inch Pilot Hole
    Dexstar Vintage Steel Wheel # AM20501 does just have the star shape and not a large circle. It is the only wheel that we carry that has the 4 on 9.44 inch bolt pattern. Based on the measurements of the wheels you currently have, this wheel would not fit. It is possible that you can change the hubs on the trailer to be able to use a more common wheel style and bolt pattern. I would need to know the inner and outer bearing numbers stamped into the sides of the bearings. Or, if the numbers...

These have a 4 on 9.44" bolt pattern which you can verify matches what you have by measuring from the center of one bolt hole to the center of the bolt hole directly across from it.

    I may have an option for replacing the 7.00-15 LT Load Range D tires and wheels on your older car trailer, but we do not offer any 7.00-15 tires. The closest option to this size is the ST225/75R15 which will be 1" wider than your current tires but will be 1" shorter overall. To make sure this will fit your trailer you will need to measure from the inside edge of your current tires to the frame. You will need to have at least 1-1/2" clearance for these to fit.

In order to choose the right one, I recommend measuring your current wheel width so it matches. I have attached a helpful article on tire sizing as well as a review video for your reference.

    We do have a couple of steel wheels with the 4 on 9.44 bolt pattern in a 15 inch. We have wheel # AM20501 which is a 15 x 6 inch wheel rated for 2,330 pounds. And we have # AM20395 which is a 15 x 5 inch rated for 1,680 pounds. Both wheels have a 1/2 inch positive offset (the tire will be 1/2 inch closer to frame than wheel with zero offset). The 7.00-15 tire size will fit either size wheel.

    Since your tires are 7.00X15LT, the "15" in that tire size means that they are on 15 inch rims. If you need it I have articles attached that explain how to measure a trailer tire and wheel. When you measure make sure you're measuring inside to inside at the tire bead seat. The same with the width, inside to inside because what you're measuring on the dimensions is where the tire is seated. I also have videos attached that show(s) how to measure a tire and wheel.
