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"

- AM20742

This wheel (AM20742)was an alternative to the wheel I originally ordered back in September (AM20741). The original wheel ordered was not available and was not expected to be received until January 2022. The alternative met the size and load requirements for our RV and was available in stock. Good news is eTrailer shipped the wheel and I received it earlier than expected. Bad news is that the packaging was terrible. The wheel was not protected with cardboard or plastic and was scratched upon delivery. Also, per the attached photo, it must have been sitting in a warehouse for a long time. Note the manufacturing date of 05/18/14. I was expecting a new wheel, not one that was already 7+ years old. I will keep the wheel as is and use as a spare since it is not worth the hassle and cost of returning it to etrailer. I hope they can improve their packaging procedures.

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels

I love these wheels! They are everything I expected and more ; they not only look good , they are strong enough for the weight I haul. They were packaged good and I received them without any flaws. Thank you!

I love the wheels! No problems whatsoever. I would buy them again!

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels

The new wheels are beautiful. The best part is they are made in the U.S.A.! Two gripes: 1. One of the wheels showed up with a couple minor scratches on them. Not ideal but given they are trailer wheels and I am on a time line to get racing, I didn't want to go through the process of exchanging it. 2. I wish they offered more options for colors and maybe a chrome or polished aluminum.

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels

I bought 4 of these wheels because they were American made and powder coated. After receiving them, they were all damaged in shipment due to poor packaging. Two wheels per box separated by a small piece of cardboard stapled to the inside of the box. This piece came loose during shipment and destroyed the wheels. etrailer customer service was outstanding in sending another set and setting up a return. Issues...the second set was requested to be sent in individual boxes to prevent damage, however they were again packaged 2 per box with a little larger piece of cardboard. There was still severe chipping of the finish, but no physical denting like the first set. The powder E-coat primer/powdercoat finish is weak at best. The powdercoat is almost non existent on the inside of the wheel. The finish rubs off on the inside of the cardboard box turning it white, and the way it is flaking off of the wheels indicates to me that the powdercoat process used is flawed. 2nd time around I reached out to Dexstar wheel directly, and have returned those wheels to them for examination of the finish. Dexstar is replacing them for me direct as they told me etrailer purchases these wheels from another distributor and not directly from Dexstar. Like I told etrailer and Dexstar, for the price of these wheels, they should have a much better finish. I have 2 Chinese made white painted wheels that are in way better shape for 1/3 of the cost of these. I would not recommend purchasing these wheels from etrailer if you want a quality wheel. Hopefully the replacements directly from Dexstar will arrive in better shape, however I feel the finish will be the same and uneven on the inside at best as the Dexstar sales manager told me they don't put much powder on the inside of the wheel, because the E-coat primer keeps the wheel sealed. Disappointed all around with the product, but both customer service departments have been excellent.

The website was so easy to navigate and I found exactly what I was looking for and for a great price. My rim was shipped so fast and packaged nicely so would not get damaged. etrailer is definitely the go to site for me now.

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels

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!

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels

Needed 15" wheels on my travel trailer so I could run load E tires. I wanted the same brand of wheel that was on it from the factory. Found these and they were perfect. Good price, worked as expected. Would recommend buying here.

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels

I ordered 4 rims and all of the arrived to finish damage. One even looks as though is was run down the road with a flat tire. They will hold air but I worry about rust issues now.

Sorry to hear about the cosmetic damage to your wheels. They will definitely need touched up with paint to avoid rust. Customer Service will reach out to you.

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels

They look like a well built wheel with a nice finish. I wish they came with .625" Dia. Valve stem holes instead of the .453" Dia. I am mounting 14 ply tires that require 95 psi operating pressure. The 100psi valve stems required the .625" hole. Must of missed that in the specs or it wasn't there. Anyway, not a big deal. I used a cone drill that had a .625" Dia. and drilled them out, thoroughly deburred both sides, installed what I had, mounted the tires and pumped them up to 100psi. They are holding fine. I was concerned the existing hole was so close to a radius, but they sealed fine. I test mounted one to trailer to check fit and runout. It looks great. I had silver rims prior and they were getting rusty and leaking in the weld seams. I will update after a couple months of use.

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels

As usual, the parts I get from etrailer are of the highest quality. I never pay extra, to get a better product, because they only handle the best. That being said, it was great to get a trailer wheel that is of heavy duty construction and can handle the tire and air pressure needed on this trailer. The paint finish and welding are great. And shipped in a box that prevented dings & scratches. Ready to go!

  • What is the Offset For Dexstar 16 x 6 Inch Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel with 6 on 5-1/2 Bolt Pattern
    Yes, unless otherwise stated on the product page for a wheel, it will have a zero offset. So for Dexstar trailer wheel # AM20742 it does have a zero offset meaning the mounting surface of the wheel to the hub is right in the center of the hub. I have included a link to a video review of this wheel for you.

  • How Do I Know If My Wheels Will Handle Higher PSI Tires?
    The wheel on a trailer will typically always be higher than any tire that can be mounted. The limiting factory is the valve stem. A solid metal one, like the Americana Metal, Bolt-In Valve Stem # AM20906, will be rated to to 200 psi, whereas a valve stem that is either partly or completely rubber, it will at the very most be rated up to 100 psi. If your valve stems are not currently all metal ones, I highly recommend replacing them with the # AM20906. However, from the picture you sent,...

    The Dexstar Mini Mod trailer wheel # AM20742 you referenced will only come in a white powder coat.

  • Recommended Made in USA 16 x 6 Trailer Wheels With 6 on 5-1/2 Bolt Pattern
    There are wheels made here in the USA but to get the right one I'd need to know your wheel bolt pattern and the wheel diameter you need. If you are unsure of what your wheel bolt pattern is or how to find it, I've added a link to a help article on how to determine wheel bolt pattern for you to take a look at. If you get back to me with that information I'd be happy to help you find the best wheel for your trailer.
