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 put these on an old 2 wheel trailer to hold my portable welder. They’re doing the job well. Make the whole thing look better too!


Great quality wheels and great service, only I wish I had purchased the valves to go along with the wheels.

We offer a metal valve stem as part # AM20906, which Id recommend instead of the rubber valve stems.


Bailey was very nice and helpful on the phone. Will definitely do business with her again


These rims are perfect for my project... not a trailer, but a 1978 Toyota LandCruiser FJ40. They have the perfect 70s spoke look that is period correct for the ride. I didn't have any trouble getting tires (E-Rated) mounted or balanced at the big tire chain. I've put nearly 3000 miles on them already with no issues. I chose these because they had the correct backspacing and bolt pattern for the application, no interference in the front on full wheel lock, left or right. The USA made quality is certainly there; the powder-coating was just as uniform through the center of the wheel (not seen when the tire is mounted)as it is on the outside surfaces, unlike some foreign made stuff I saw at local trailer stores. Highly recommend, even though most of you reading this need it for a trailer. I tried uploading a picture, but it just says "was unsucccessful to upload".


etrailer went above and beyond to help me get a wheel i needed in a very short period of time. etrailer associates kept me in the loop the whole shipping process to ensure i received it when needed. highly recommend them for your wheel purchases. It’s hard to find companies going above and beyond to help customers and etrailer certainly went above and beyond to help me in a desperate time of need. Thank you guys very much!

Product works great. Etrailer is truly one of a kind!


After careful consideration I purchased 5 16x6 Dexstar wheels for my enclosed car trailer. While installing the tires you could clearly SEE on the spin balancer that 2 of the rims "not tires" were out of round and required additional weight 3.75/2.25 to bring them into balance which is more than normal. I am uncertain of the factory tolerance however I would not recommend these wheels to a friend. If I had more time I would return. This was the reason I wanted to by wheels made in the USA and not ones made across the pond.


As advertised, great price, quick free delivery for the 4 wheels. Converted my Arctic Fox Silver Edition from 15 inch to 16 inch LT225/75R16 E rated tires. Note, ST tires are not rated for more then 65 MPH. Most of us tow at that speed all day long and occasionally faster, risky with ST rated tires.


Product was just what I needed. It was shipped very quickly esp during holiday season. I was informed all the way thru delivery. Very good service.

Working good


Exact match for the rim I was replacing


Perfect upgrade to the 15" tires on my 5th wheel. Now I have a large selection for tires. I ordered valves stems too, but the wrong size (hole size). Probably my fault, but it would have been nice to be warned about the size difference. No big deal - valve stems are located all over, but the deal on these wheels are not. Thanks!


A quality trailer rim. My trailer came with 15 inch wheels an so i was limited to a low rating for weight capacity. These rims were cheap yet true and a good weight rating.


These 16" wheels were as described. A good value that solved my problem.
I wish that I had purchased them earlier.


Exactly what I needed


These wheels are an outstanding bargain and were shipped and received at my home in unbelievable time frame. This order is proof that this company is certainly # 1 in customer satisfaction! Great company with can do attitude employees!

Francis G.


Great, they still look new and have worked with my sons camper!


Can't say enough good about this company. Their followup communication is tops. Shipping was extemely fast, even though I used the cheapest method (they upgraded me for free). I have, and will continue to buy from!


both tire and wheel holding up well . good quality and good price. Thank you.


Fair price, fast, safe shipping. Pam from sales was awesome!
Website is easy to use and place orders.


Product is as advertised and a good value! Finish an appearance is great. Tire mounted with no problems.


Product received in good condition. Excellent service by etrailer. I received shipment within 5 days(would have been 3 days if UPS delivered on weekends); Thanks for good service.


Don't have a picture but the product that I bought was just as expected and worked great. I would suggest shopping with Etrailer to everyone.


Good quality rim. It was used (couldn’t wait for delayed delivery of a new one) and has a couple of nicks on the backside, but other than that its good.


As they should be . . .


Ordered these trailer wheels the evening of 2/1. They shipped on 2/2, and I received them 2/8. Fast shipping, and the price was right (free). Wheels look great, and I was happy to see them marked "Made in the USA".


Wheel/rim is exact replacement for original.
reasonablably priced.
Packaged very well, & shipped fast.
Would order again.


I received my wheel just as I ordered and ahead of schedule. Great company to do business with. Will certainly be doing more business with them.

The products I ordered was a replacement steel wheel and valve stem for my RV. Have not had any problems with them. Very pleased with products and with service from etrailer. Will do business with them again.

  • Determining Bolt Pattern of 16 inch Trailer Wheel for Replacement
    For 6 lug wheels we need the dimension across the center of the wheel from stud to stud to determine bolt pattern. You most likely have the very common 6 lug pattern of 6 on 5-1/2 inch but you'd need to measure first to verify. The white wheel part # AM20741 that you referenced has this bolt pattern and should work well for you but it's probably worth verifying first.

  • Does Dexstar Steel Trailer Wheel Part AM20741 from Americana have a Zero Offset
    I checked my Americana catalog and yes, part # AM20741 is a 0 offset. I will have the info added to our site for future customers.
    view full answer...
  • What is Negative and Positive Wheel Offset
    Yes, a negative offset moves the tire further away from the axle/trailer, while a positive offset will move the tire closer to the trailer. Most of the trailer wheels we carry have a zero offset, which means that the the mounting surface is on the same plane as the center line of the wheel. This is done to equalize the weight of the trailer load. The offset of our wheels is listed under "Specs." For instance, the offset for the Dexstar Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel # AM20741 is listed as...

  • Dexstar Trailer Wheel Replacement for 17-243
    Yes the Dexstar Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel # AM20741 is the same as the 17-243 that you mentioned so this would be an exact replacement.

  • At What Age Should Trailer Tires Get Replaced
    Trailer tires should be replaced about every 6 or 7 years, even if the tread is still in good shape. As tires age, they can crack and dry rot. Continuing to use the existing tires would be dangerous. If you'd care to reply with the current size of the tires you have, I'd be happy to make a recommendation.

  • Replacement Trailer Rim for an Excel Trailer that Has 6 Lug Wheels and 16 inch Wheels
    Looks like the part # AM20741 would be the correct rim for you to use. This is a 16 inch diameter wheel like what the tire size you listed indicated plus it has a 6 lug bolt pattern like the picture of your wheel shows.

  • Maximum Load Capacity and Air Pressure on Dexstar Trailer Wheel, 16 x 6, 6 on 5-1/2, # AM20741
    The load capacity and air pressure rating for the Dexstar Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel - 16 x 6 Inch Rim - 6 on 5-1/2, part # AM20741, and the Dexstar Conventional Steel Wheel - 16 x 6 Inch Rim - 6 on 5-1/2, part # AM20758, is 3,050 lbs at 90 psi. If this is for a trailer, the 265/75-16 tire size is usually not available in a trailer tire. The special trailer (ST) tires are designed with stronger sidewalls and can handle higher air pressures which are needed when being used on a trailer...

  • Replacement Trailer Wheels to Fit 215/85-16 Size Tires
    First of all your tire size, 215/85-16 sounds like it's a passenger vehicle tire and not a trailer tire. Trailer tire sizes begin with "ST" for special trailer. I recommend using ST tires because they have a stiffer sidewall to handle the vertical load of a trailer. If your tires are trailer tires then you're good to go. But if they aren't I would get some trailer tires. The exception is that some LT tires can be used on trailers. Your 7.50-16's that you had were likely LT tires....

  • Valve Stem Recommendation for Use with the Dexstar Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel # AM20741
    The valve stem I would recommend for the Dexstar Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel # AM20741 that you referenced is the part # AM20906. This valve stem will fit the wheel and can handle 100 psi and greater. The rim hole diameter this valve stem is designed to fit is .625". I attached an FAQ on trailer tires for you to check out as well.

  • Benefit of Changing 5th Wheel Trailer Tires from Load Range C to Load Range E
    Thank you for the photo of your Rockwood Signature 5th wheel. You can change your 5th wheel's ST225/75R/15 Load Range C radial tires to a higher Load Range (D or E) if you like but this will not necessarily increase the trailer's gross weight rating unless the tires are the lowest-rated component. Moving to a higher-capacity tire can reduce the tires' operating temperature and this can be beneficial since heat is a trailer tire's worst enemy. You will want to ensure your spare is the...

  • How to Inflate Trailer Tires to Listed Max PSI on Wheels with Lower PSI Rating
    The weak part on a trailer wheel in terms of psi capacity is usually just the valve stem itself. Replacing the existing valve stem with a metal unit like the Americana # AM20906 will allow for a maximum air pressure of up to 200 psi so you can maintain the listed 110 max psi on your new tires. I have attached a short video review on this particular valve stem that you can check out as well.

  • What Size Wheel Does 2006 Forest River Cherokee Have
    The size of your wheel on your 2006 Forest River Cherokee is going to be 16 inch diameter by 6 inches wide with a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern like the Dexstar Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel # AM20741 which would fit and work well.

  • Maximum Air Pressure of Dexstar 16 x 6 Trailer Wheel # AM20741
    According to Dexstar Wheel, the # AM20741 wheel has a maximum load rating of 3050 lbs at 90 psi. So, 90 psi would be the maximum air pressure. We recommend using # AM20906 for a valve stem. I'll link you to our trailer tire/wheel FAQ article, which I hope you'll find helpful.

  • Will Larger Tires Fit on Lifted 1995 Featherlite Trailer With 7.00-15 Tires
    You can use a larger trailer tire like the Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range F # AM10501 as long as you have enough clearance. This tire would also require a larger wheel like the # AM20741 you were looking at and a hub with the bolt pattern to match. The outer diameter is 31.6" so it will be roughly an inch taller when compared to your current tires which are typically 29.4" in diameter. It also has a section width of 9.37" so you will want to compare that to your...

  • Looking For a 225/75R15 E Load Range Tire for RV
    I have just the special trailer tire for you. Take a look at Karrier ST225/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire, # AM10303. A higher rated tire like this load range E-rated radial will run cooler while its radial design will give you better handling. Part # AM10303 has a maximum load capacity of 2,830-lbs at 80-psi inflation. Always run a trailer tire at its maximum rated psi pressure as shown on the tire sidewall.

  • Availability of Load Range E Tires for a 15 Inch Galvanized Boat Trailer Wheel with ST225/75R15 D

The ST225/75R15 trailer tires we carry, item # AM10256, have a capacity of 2,540 lbs at 65 psi, and should be sufficient for the axle and components on your trailer.

  • Availability of a 16 Inch Wheel with 5 on 4-1/2 Inch Bolt Pattern
    We offer a 15 inch diameter by 6 inch wide white spoked wheel in a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern, part # AM20522, but none of our vendors offer a 16 inch wheel with that bolt pattern. Generally, 16 inch wheels are used on larger trailers that have heavier axles that use a different bolt pattern like 6 on 5-1/2 or 8 on 6-1/2.

  • Backspacing of the Dexstar Conventional Steel Wheel # AM20758
    Sounds like you are either asking for the pilot diameter (the diameter of the hole in the middle of the wheel), which is 3.65 inches, or you are asking about the bolt pattern of the wheel which is 6 on 5-1/2 inch. The backspacing is 3-1/2 inches and there are no hub caps available for this wheel. The closest thing to a white version of this wheel would be the part # AM20741, but it has a larger pilot diameter at 4.27 inches.

  • Dexstar Wheel Availability in 16 Inch and 6 on 5-1/2 Inch Bolt Pattern
    Dexstar does not make that directional wheel in a 16 inch option. It is only available in 13 inch, 14 inch, and 15 inch options. I've attached the link to all your wheel options for the 16 inch wheels with the 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern you are seeking so you can see all your options. The Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20746 or the Dexstar Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel # AM20741 are probably the closest in style.

  • Can ST225/75R15 Trailer Tires be Replaced with ST235/85R16 Trailer Tires
    The tires that you have now, ST225/75R15, are 28.4 inches tall and 8 inches wide. The larger ST235/85R16 are 31.6 inches tall and 9.25 inches wide. You would need enough space all around the existing tires to use the larger size. Only half of the difference is applied towards the trailer from the sidewall and above the tire tread to a fender or trailer body. That means that you would need more than 1.6 inches above the tread and more than 0.625 inches between the sidewalls and the trailer...
