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"

I really liked these wheels because they are 6” wide. Plus they look hood on my black trailer




by:

This is a basic trailer wheel, but, for me, the difference with etrailer is the service. Price is great on these wheels, as they are powder coated. Only complaint it the packaging. Two wheels were packed in one box each with a layer of cardboard stapled to the box. That doesn’t work. The wheels had banged against each other in both boxes. Fortunately, no damage resulted.


Comments
Great wheeels. Still look good!

by:

My experience was overall very frustrating. The quality control on the wheels I received was awful, both the original set and it's replacement set were badly damaged. Customer support was understanding and freely offered replacements both times but I expect that heavily damaged items shouldn't be shipped in the first place. This was my first interaction with trailer and will likely be my last. I don't have time to take a chances on orders, I need to trust that I'm receiving quality goods.




by:

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!

THE WHEELS GOT DELIVERED ON TIME!!! (:=




by:

Fast shipping, exactly what I needed!! Will definitely do business again!




by:

USA made, awesome price, fast shipping. Really happy with the wheels, 1 year later they still look like new. Trailer had 14" wheels before that looked too small with the axle flip so I went with 15s.




by:

Product if just fine but shipping I got one Saturday one Monday and still waiting one the last set

Exactly what we wanted for our camper. Super quick delivery! Highly recommend etrailer.com.




by:

Very Fast Service will be ordering more products Thank you




by:

rims aren't very strait, had them on a wheel balance machine, 3 of the 4 rims had a big wobble. but I guess they were the cheapest 15x6 5 x 4.5 rims so it will have to do




by:

Etrailer came through in my search for rims! I raised my flat deck ATV trailer from 13" to 15" tires and searched for basic rims.

Etrailer was the only affordable rims I could find. I had to finagle shipping to Alaska to cut costs.

I'm not adding pictures as they are just basic black rims, but I couldn't be more pleased. Having 15" wheels & tires over those 13" wheels is a relief!


Comments
Ive been very pleased with the purchase. While these were the basic black rim that went on a flatbed utility trailer, the ability to move from a 13 tire to 15 tire was why I needed. No more undependable small tires! Thank you!

I'll let the photos tell the story. Grand Design Imagine 2800bh with 4000lb leaf springs to replace the 3500lb. Goodyear Endurance E-rated tires and Moryde CRE 3000, new steel wheels. Suspension solved. You folks deliver again. Correct order within 2 days always.Thank you.




by:

Fantastic product. Finish is glossy, smooth, and durable. Was happy to find a quality, US-made product at a great price price.




by:

Nice wheels




by:

Replaced my travel trailer wheels that bent on a pothole. These are made in the USA like my Goodyear Endurance I put on them.
Fast delivery, great service. They have a great paint finish as well. Still look nice on the camper.
I'll be ordering suspension next. Quality all the way.


Comments
So I have about 2000 towing miles on this set up. This was the end of my problems. I am currently on an 1800 mile road trip from NY to NM. No issues. It is such a difference to upgrade tire, rims, and suspension. I can tow at 70mph in calm winds and not worry about it anymore. Highly recommend

by:

I purchased a new left over Travel Trailer and decided to upgrade the wheel size so I could increase the load range on the tires. I ordered the Dexter 15" wheels in black and also chrome center caps with black plastic end caps. I was most impressed with etrailer's shipping and customer service. For that main reason they've earned my buisness in the future. The wheels were nice and well worth the price. They DID NOT come with valve stems which I thought they did,but I was still very happy with my products.




by:

I really like these wheels, the finish is well applied, no blems or voids, and the powdercoat looks clean. I am happy that these wheels are made in the USA, and that they have a higher weight rating than wheels of similar size from other manufacturers. All in all I am quite pleased and the wheels and the excellent service from etrailer which was spectacular, as usual!


Comments
After a year the wheels are still looking and performing great. They clean up easily and as for service has been superb.

See what our Experts say about this Dexstar Trailer Tires and Wheels

  • Does Pilot Diameter of Replacement Trailer Wheel Matter When Picking Out New Wheels
    In most cases the pilot diameter does not matter as long as it's larger than what the hub of the trailer would require to fit properly. The only time pilot diameter is critical is if the hub is a hub-centric setup where the wheel centers on the hub with the pilot hole. If your current wheel attaches with bolts instead of lug nuts you would have a hub-centric setup. If you have lug nuts you have a lug-centric setup. The part # AM20545 that you referenced has a pilot diameter of 3.19 inches....

  • Does Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20545 Have Any Offset
    Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20545 does not have any offset. I confirmed this with Dextsar. Also if a wheel does have offset we will indicate this in the item's specs. This Dexstar wheel is a 15 x 6-inch size with a 5-on-4-1/2-inch bolt pattern. It features a 2150-lb capacity, fits 1/2-inch diameter wheel bolts and can accept tire sizes 205/75-15 and 225/75-15. This wheel is USA-made and meets all DOT standards.

  • What is the Offset and Backspacing for the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20545
    Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20545 does not have any offset. I confirmed this with Dextsar. It sounds like you are asking about the backspacing which is the distance from the mounting flange to the outside of the rim. Since this is a 6 inch wide rim the back spacing is 3-1/2 inches. To determine this you take the overall width of the rim and add an additional inch for the lip on the wheel and then divide by 2.

  • Could Tire Size 235/75R15 Fit on a Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20545
    The tire size you listed isn't a standard trailer tire size, but the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20545 that you referenced could have a 235/75R15 mounted to it pretty easily. You should note that this wheel is designed and rated for use on a trailer. It has a zero offset and has a wheel bolt pattern of 5 on 4-1/2 inches.

  • Are Steel Trailer Wheels Made with 5 on 4-1/2 inch Bolt Pattern
    Yes we have several steel trailer wheels that have a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern like the part # AM20545 for a black one that has a 15 inch diameter. To see all of the steel wheels we offer that match what you are looking for check out the link I attached on this page.
    view full answer...
  • BackSpacing for Dexstar Steel Modular Trailer Wheel # AM20545
    Since most trailer wheels (including the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20545) have a zero offset that means the back spacing is just half the width of the wheel. That means this wheel has a 3-1/2 inch backspacing. To determine that you take width of wheel, 6 inches, add inch for lip, and then divide by two.

  • Lug Nut Torque Specs for 1/2 Inch Nuts on Dexstar 15 Inch Trailer Wheel
    You will want to torque the 1/2 inch lug nuts on your Dexsar Steel Mini Mod 15" Wheel # AM20545 to 90-120 foot pounds. I have also attached a helpful chart that might come in handy if you ever change wheel sizes down the line.

  • Will 225/70r15 Tires Fit On Dexter Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel #AM20545 ?
    Yes, a 225/70R15 tire will fit on the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20545 . This wheel is 15" diameter x 6" wide with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. Since the 225/75r15 wheel is approved for mounting on anywhere from 6-7.5" wide wheels this wheel and tire will work as a set.

  • Measuring 5 Lug Hubs To Determine Correct Bolt Pattern For New Wheels
    It sounds like you are measuring a 5 lug hub. With this type of lug pattern you will actually measure to the outside edge of the hole if you are measuring from one wheel stud to the opposite wheel stud. As you likely have 1/2" wheel studs and you measured 4-1/4" from center to center of the wheel studs this would give you a 5 on 4-1/2" lug pattern. If all this is correct the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20545 that you were looking at would be the correct wheel lug pattern...

  • Can Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel be Used on Load Range E Tires Rated for 80 psi
    The Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20545 has a max capacity of 2,150 pounds. Load Range E tires are rated up to 2,830 pounds so you'll be limited by the wheel's capacity. The psi rating of a wheel is determined by the valve stems. They aren't included with the Dexstar rim so use # AM20904 that are rated up to 80 psi. I've linked our selection of Load Range E tires that will fit the Dexstar Rim.

  • Wheel Rim Recommendation to Fit Trailer Tire Size of ST205/75R15
    For a trailer wheel/rim that fits the size 205/75R15 you need a rim that is has a width between 5 and 6-1/2 inches. There are many style differences you can choose from but you need to make sure the bolt pattern matches your hubs. I've attached an article to assist. For common trailer bolt patterns, I recommend # AM20514 which has the bolt pattern of 6 on 5-1/2 inches or if you have a bolt pattern of 5 on 4-1/2 inch you'd want the part # AM20545. It would be rare for a horse trailer...

  • 80 PSI Valve Stem Recommendation for Dexstar Mini Mod Wheel AM20545
    I went and pulled a Dexstar Wheel part # AM20545 from our warehouse to measure the diameter of the valve stem hole and found it to be .453 of an inch in diameter. For an 80 psi valve stem to fit this you would want part # AM20904. The psi limiting factor of a wheel setup is almost always going to be the valve stem.
    view full answer...
  • Will the Dexstar Rim part # AM20545 Fit a 215/75/15 Tire
    A tire with the size 215/75/15 would fit on the Dexstar Rim part # AM20545 that you referenced. These rims can also handle 65 psi as well. You should note that this rim should only be used on trailers and not trucks. The max tire pressure the valve stem # AM20904 can handle is 80.
    view full answer...
  • 15 inch Trailer Rim Recommendation Rated for 65 psi
    Generally the limiting factor for psi on a trailer rim is the valve stem, but if the rim on your trailer does specify that it itself cannot take more than 50 psi then you would want to upgrade the rim. Typically rims can handle over 50 psi pretty easily but I can't recommend you exceed the rims capacity. If you are looking for a 15 inch diameter rim that is 6 inches wide with a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern that can handle 65 psi easily the part # AM32545 would work well. I attached a review...

  • Recommended Valve Stem For Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel
    I went and pulled a Dexstar Wheel part # AM20545 from our warehouse to measure the diameter of the valve stem hole and found it to be .453 of an inch in diameter. For an 80 psi valve stem to fit this you would want part # AM20904. The psi limiting factor of a wheel setup is almost always going to be the valve stem. Check your tires for their maximum PSI rating because you always want to run trailer tires at their max PSI.
    view full answer...
  • What Is the PSI Rating of the Steel Modular Trailer Wheel
    The Dexstar Mini Mod Trailer Wheel part # AM20545 as with all trailer wheels do not have a psi rating. The reason for this is because the wheel itself will never be the limiting factor but instead the valve stem. If you need a high pressure valve stem then the Americana Metal, Bolt-In Valve Stem part # AM20906 is what I recommend as it has a 200 max psi rating.

  • Installing 10 Ply Tires On a 2019 Forest River Cherokee Grey Wolf 27RR Travel Trailer Toy Hauler
    I was able to find that your 2019 Forest River Cherokee Grey Wolf 27RR comes with 205/75R14 tires load range D on a 14x5.5" wheels and uses a 5 on 4-1/2" lug pattern. If you want to get to a 10-ply rated tire you will need to move to a 15" wheel. I recommend a Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20545 to be used with a Karrier ST225/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire # AM10303. Currently we do not have any wheel and tire packages that have the 225/75R15 on a 15" wheel that has a 5 on 4-1/2"...

  • 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, then...

  • Spare Tire w/ Black Rim and 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern for a 2019 Palomino Solaire 251RBSS
    Yes, there is an option for a black rim like the one you were looking at. It is the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel item # AM20545. It is a 15" x 6" rim with a 5 on 4-1/2 lug pattern. This wheel is identical to the Karrier ST225/75R15 Radial Tire item # AM32545 except for the color. The tire in that combo is the Karrier ST225/75R15 Radial Tire item # AM10256. This is a radial tire with a maximum load capacity of 2,540 lbs at 65 psi. It has a speed rating of M which tops out at 81 mph.

  • Wheel Center Cap Recommendation for Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel part # AM20545
    We have center caps that would fit the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel part # AM20545 but none of them are painted black. They are all chrome but could easily be painted black. For the cap you would want the part # 319EZ.

  • Overall Diameter of Trailer Wheel Center Cap 319EZ for 3.19-Inch Trailer Wheel Pilot Holes
    If your trailer wheel pilot hole is 3.19-inches then you can use wheel center cap part # 319EZ or one of the other same-size center caps shown on the linked page. All fit a 3.19-inch pilot hole. The 3-7/16-inch dimension noted on the product page refers to the outside dimension of the flanged part that remains behind the wheel to hold the cap in place. This is why it is larger than the hole diameter. The next size up is for a 3.33-inch wheel pilot hole diameter. I linked our pages for...

  • Can you Tow a Trailer at its Max Capacity
    Though you never want to go over the maximum capacity of the trailer, towing at its max is perfectly fine. That being said, there are a few things you will want to keep an eye on. Make sure you are following all speed limits while staying on smooth even roads and your tires are filled to the proper psi and are in good condition. If this something you will be doing fairly often, however, you may want to supplement the suspension with something like heavier duty springs, like the Universal...
