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"

Ordered 6 rims for my triple axle toyhauler to upgrade from trailer tires to LT tires. Rim have been perfect with zero signs of rust...great powdercoating! Attached pic shows 2 of the new 16" rims installed with LT tires compared to the old black 15" rims with a trailer tires.

I was surprised that the cash from the order came out right away and then was released back to the account. I was also surprised that it took over 3 weeks to process the order. But we now have the rims. They are exactly what we were needing to get our horse trailer up off the ground and our truck just a wee bit. I am happy with the purchase.

The AM20746 wheel was purchased as a spare. The product was exactly as depicted on the web site. Teresa was very professional and knowledgeable. The etrailer.com tracking feature was very detailed and also included a link to UPS tracking. This was my first purchase with etrailer but if future needs arise it will not be the last. I would highly recommend etrailer.

Dexstar 1 star, eTrailer.com Customer Service 5+++ stars These 5 Dexstar wheels were my 2nd set of Dexstar wheels. The first in 2001 when Dexter axle still owned and operated Dexstar. It was frustrating to realize the sloppy manufacturing quality when compared to my originals. Specifically, 4 of the 5 wheels had quite visible lateral runout. And, of course I didn't realize until I went to pickup my new wheels and tires from tire dealer mounting and saw the 4 of the 5 wheels with the largest amt of wheel weights I have ever seen on light truck tires covering up to 1/3 of the rim face front and rear. After dismounting & checking with a dial indicator, one was .048", one other was over .030, & didn't bother to check the others. One wheel was straight, however. 4 of 5 wheels had quality checking pen marks on the rear of the wheels - so they did undergo some type of human inspection. Phone calls plus eMails to Dexstar request lateral runout production tolerance specifications, and casual 'hey can you help me out here ' inquiries as to what criteria they used for warranty replacements, all met with no response. Focused pursuit of a response from Dexstar mfg over 5 days and a wkend resulted in discovering that Dexstar had only one person assigned to quality, who also is responsible for determining warranty work. [It's been over 2 wks and still no response]. No wheel specification documentation is available from Dexstar website or googling. I'm now under the impression that Dexstar's business model like others, requires that their distributors deal with these types of issues, and not directly with the manufacturer. Again, it was painful to witness such deterioration of quality since my first set of wheels, and yet they are still manufactured here in the U.S. This is one of a very few occasions in the past 20ys that I would give a single star in a review. In addition to the tolerance issues, the powder coating was questionable on 3 of the 5, and most of the wheels chipped (albeit small) rather easily wherever the tire mounting machine touched the wheels. My original painted wheels were quite durable for the first 12 yrs in the sun. But it all worked out even better in the end as eTrailer.com didn't hesitate to offer choices of a solution from a refund to upgrades to correct this. eTrailer topped it off with literally a painless return process.

This rim is for a 1997 vermeer chipper, I purchased it because we need a spare tire for it. The rim is really nice looking and the same design as the stock rims. It cost $460 to have road side service fix your flat on a commercial vehicle. The price for a this rim and a tire $128, I hate going out and doing jobs when the repairs are almost as much as my jobs mainly if you have a crew to pay also. Plus the down time waiting for the road service to get to you. Now we do the repairs ourself save money and not 3 hours or more down time. Etrailer has great products and the price is great also. I payed shipping because the price is perfect, and they get it to you right away.. Thanks etrailer. Will be a long time customer..

  • Can Replacement Wheel with Larger Pilot Hole be Used on Older Gooseneck Trailer
    As long as the hubs on your gooseneck trailer feature wheel studs and the wheels attach using lug nuts going with a wheel like the Dexstar # AM20746 that you referenced that has a larger pilot hole diameter is not an issue at all. This is referred to a lug-centric wheel setup and since the wheels are centered to the hub using lug nuts the pilot hole doesn't matter (unless it's too small to fit over the hub). This is what the vast majority of trailers use but since you have an older trailer...

  • Backspacing for Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20746
    Since Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20746 has a zero offset the backspacing would be half the overall width of the wheel which on a 16 x 6 wheel is about 7 inches. That would make the backspacing 3-1/2 inches.

  • Does Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel - 16" x 6" - 6 on 5-1/2 Have an Offset

  • Can Trailer Wheels be Used on a 1970 Chevrolet K10
    Technically if the bolt pattern, center hole diameter, and weight rating are the same as what you currently have then you can fit these wheels on your 1970 K10, but it is not recommended. The Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20746 is designated for trailer use only and is not tested on automotive applications. Also, vehicle wheels usually have an offset and this wheel has an offset of 0, which is something else to consider should you choose to use these.

  • Availability of Replacement Hub for Mobile Home Axle
    Mobile home axles are meant to be used one time and then discarded, which is why finding replacement parts for them is nearly impossible in most circumstances. I checked the measurements you provided, looking for seals and bearings that would match so I could find the correct hub, and couldn't find a hub that's compatible with the spindle dimensions you gave me which isn't surprising. Your best bet would be to replace your existing mobile home axle with a trailer axle that uses standard...

  • How to Pick Out a Replacement Rim for a Horse Trailer
    The Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20746 that you referenced is a 16 inch diameter wheel with a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern. I am assuming this is the same style of wheel that will look similar to what you currently have. Now to determine if this rim will fit what you have on your trailer you will need to make sure that your trailer tire size is designed to fit a 16 inch rim. You will need to find the size of the tire stamped on the sidewall. If the size ends in 16 then you...

  • Valve Stem Mounting Hole Diameter of Dexstar AM20746 16 x 6 Trailer Wheel
    The Dexstar # AM20746 16x6 trailer wheel has a valve stem hole that's .625 of an inch in diameter. For a valve stem, I'd recommend the Americana # AM20906, which fits .625 or .453 inch diameter stem mounting holes. I've linked to a demonstration/installation video for the wheel and the valve stem I recommended you.

  • What Is The Difference Between Galvanized And E-Coating On Trailer Wheels
    The difference between E-Coat and Galvanized finish is the material and the method by which they are applied. Galvanizing involves the application of a heavy layer of molten zinc. E-coating is the process of immersing the part in a bath of water-soluable paint while being connected to an electrical power source set at a certain voltage. E-coating is widely used in the automobile industry due to the smooth surface and the ability to apply paint over it. If the item is being used in rough...

  • 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.

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.

This American made wheel is a 16x6 rim and includes the 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern. It is also rated up to 3,050 pounds of capacity and the silver powder coat finish over the e-coat primer will do well with corrosion resistance. The price point really can't be beat either. This will be a fantastic spare.

  • How Large is the Hub Bore on the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly AKHD-655-6-K
    I went out to our warehouse and measured the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly part # AKHD-655-6-K for you. The hub bore is 3.409" therefore that would be the minimum hub bore on your trailer wheels. Almost all of the trailer wheels we offer with a 6 on 5-1/2" lug pattern have a hub pilot hole sufficient for this. For example, the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel part # AM20746 has a 4.27" hub pilot hole.

    For determining the max psi for wheels like the Dexstar # AM20746, they are able to withstand the max psi of any tires that are designed to fit with that wheel size. The deciding factor is the tire's valve stem. For example, a valve stem like the Americana Rubber, Snap-In Valve Stem - 1-1/4" Long # AM20903 has a maximum psi of 65. The Americana High Pressure Rubber Snap-In Valve Stem - 1-1/2" Long # AM20904 has a maximum psi of 80. We do have 14-ply tires that are compatible with this...

This has the same 4,400 lb weight capacity and can easily handle 110 psi as well. We don't typically list the psi rating for the wheels as normally it's just the valve stem that limits the psi as the wheels are normally capable of much more than needed.
