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"

Review from a similar DS Dual Wheel in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I am very satisfied with everything I have ordered and everyone I have talked to is very knowledgeable. I've ordered the provider 14 ply trailer tires and use them on my dual tandem dump trailer . They seem to hold up very well under heavy loads. Orders show up within 2 days . Thanks for great products and prices.

Review from a similar DS Dual Wheel in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Very heavy rim and well made. Finish is also heavy duty. Shipping was faster than I expected, especially around the holidays and customer service from this company is very good. Something seldom seen in todays society. Mounted tires and installed on a 20,000# trailer with no issues. Have bought from this company before and will definitely buy again.

  • Can Dexstar Dual Wheel with Offset # AM20783 Fit on Dexter 12k Capacity
    Yes, the Dexstar Dual Wheel with Offset # AM20783 that you referenced will fit on a Dexter 12k trailer axle like you have.

  • Recommended 16" Dually Trailer Wheels with 8-Bolt Pattern
    The Dexstar Dual Wheel part # AM20783 for 4.75" pilot or part # AM20790 for 4.88" pilot are the only two available dually trailer wheel options we offer with 16" diameter and 8-bolt pattern. These wheels are both constructed of steel. I am not aware of any aluminum dual trailer wheels so steel will be your only option.

  • Difference Between Dexstar Dual Wheel Part # AM20783 and Lionshead Steel Dual Wheel Part # LHHA420
    The Dexstar Dual Wheel part # AM20783 and the Lionshead Steel Dual Wheel part # LHHA420 are two very similar wheels with a few key differences. They are both 16" diameter x 6" wide wheels with a 8 on 6-1/2" lug pattern. However, the Lionshead wheel has a 3,500 lb weight capacity whereas the Dexstar wheel only has a 3,100 lb weight capacity. Another noticeable difference is that the Dexstar wheel is made in the U.S.A. and the Lionshead wheel is not. In order to install either wheel you will...

  • Recommended 16" Dually Wheels to Fit 235/85R16 Tires
    From looking at your previous order (thank you for being an etrailer.com customer!) it looks like you purchased the Lionshead Steel Dual Wheel - 16" x 6" - 8 on 6-1/2 - 4.77" Pilot - Silver # LHHA420, which would be the correct sized wheel to fit a 235/85/r16 tire. If you also need the tires, the Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range F # AM10501 would fit on those wheels and provide you with a high quality tire that has a Load Range F, which have a capacity of 3960-lbs...

  • What is Trailer Wheel Pilot Diameter
    Pilot diameter on a wheel like our dually trailer wheel part # AM20783 that you referenced is basically the diameter of the center hole of the wheel. This wheel has a pilot diameter of 4.75 inches. I attached a picture that shows this dimension as well. You should note that this is a trailer wheel and it is not designed for a truck.

  • Offset and Width of the Trailer Wheel part # AM20783
    The offset for the trailer wheel part # AM20783 is 5-1/2 inches and the "width" is 6 inches not including the mounting lip. When you add that in the overall width is 6-1/2 inches.

  • Actual Wheel Offset of the Dexstar Dual Wheel part # AM20783
    The spec given to us for the offset of the Dexstar Dual Wheel part # AM20783 is 5-1/2 inches of positive offset. However, when we had our wheel and tire guru measure it he found the offset to be 5 inches of positive offset. So to answer your question, the offset is 5.

  • Torque for Lug Nuts of Taskmaster Steel Dual Trailer Wheel # AM20783
    I attached a chart that has all of the lug nut torque figures for trailer wheels for you to check out. Basically it depends on the style of lug nuts and if they have rotating flange washers. Most likely it's right at 200 ft lbs but if you do not have rotating flanges you'd need between 275 and 325 ft lbs.

  • Will 4.75 Pilot Hole Fit with 4.75 Hub for the Dexstar Dual Wheel with Offset # AM20783
    Generally if the hub has studs on it then it is stud piloted but if you secure the wheel to the hub using bolts then it is hub piloted. Since you are using dual wheels it changes things a little bit. The Dexstar Dual Wheel with Offset # AM20783 that you referenced is designed to fit on a dual wheel setup that is hub piloted. This means that the studs come through the back side of the hub and extend through both wheels and you use a 5/8" flange nut, like part # 95188, to secure it. Hub...

  • 16" Dual Wheel For Inner or Outer Mounting
    We were not familiar with the term "coin in coin out" but are guessing that you mean the wheel can be used as an outer or inner wheel. If so we have the Dexstar # AM20783 16" Dual Wheel. Steen wheel with 8 on 6.5 bolt pattern and 4.75" pilot hole, powder coated white on a hub piloted design using Dexter Axle # 95188 flange wheel nuts. Select # AM20783 for white finish with 4.88" pilot. If you need a different wheel spec' just email me back with the details.

  • Do Dually Wheels Require a Gasket to Prevent Rubbing Together
    I spoke with our resident tire/wheel guru and he said that some older trucks with duallys did use gaskets, but if your current setup is a newer one and does not have currently have gaskets then you will not need one.

  • Dual Trailer Rims with 8 on 6-/2 Inch Bolt Pattern for 9.50-16LT Tires
    We offer two different 16-1/2 inch rims with an 8 on 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern that would be compatible with a 9.5-16.5 LT tire. The Americana # AM20714 is a 16-1/2 x 6-3/4 inch rim with a 4.88 inch pilot diameter. The Dexstar # AM20730 is a 16-1/2 x 6-3/4 inch rim with a 4.75 inch pilot diameter. Both wheels have a 5-1/2 inch positive offset.

  • Spare 16 Wheel Needed for 2017 Ford E450 Class C RV
    We do have some replacement wheels that you can see with parts # AM20783, # LHHA420, and # TA56FR if you're only needing the wheel. Since this is on a motorhome you're actually going to need to look into regular vehicle tires if you need a tire as well. We only handle trailer tires and even though they look similar they have a different type of design so you won't want to use anything we have as a replacement for your motorhome. That extra hole is so that you ca align both wheels on...

  • American Made 16 Steel Dual Trailer Wheels
    I do have a great option for you, however the Taskmaster Steel Dual Trailer Wheel # F2513166055 that you referenced is not made in the USA. For a 16" dual steel wheel with the same 8 on 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern that's American made we have the Dexstar # AM20790 in Gray or # AM20783 for White. Both options feature a 5-1/2 inch offset, a 3,100 pound weight capacity, and come with a 2 year limited warranty. I have attached a couple short video reviews on these wheels that you can check...

  • Replacement Trailer Wheels with 4.75 Pilot Hole Diameter
    We carry rims with a 4.77 pilot hole, like # F2513166055, and a 4.75 inch pilot hole, like # AM20783, however they're both for dual wheel applications and have an offset. Using a wheel with a 4.75 or 4.77 pilot will be just fine since there's such a small difference. It's likely the measured hole is the same just estimated on the 4.75.

  • How To Add Dual Wheels and Tires to a 6K Trailer Axle
    In order to run dual wheels and tires on a 6K axle what we have is the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly part # 8-219-18UC3 which uses 5/8" lug studs and has a 4.75" pilot. This will then work with the Dexstar Dual Wheel with Offset part # AM20783 and you can add the Provider ST235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire part # TTWTRTM2358016E to complete the setup. The parts you mentioned were not compatible, they did not have the same pilot nor even the same lug size.

  • Dually Wheels for 235/86-16 Tires
    We currently have dually wheels available by themselves but no tire and wheel combos for duallies. Any tire shop should be able to mount the tires on the wheels for a nominal fee. For a 16 inch dually wheel we have the following options: 16x6 inch with 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern with 5-1/2 inch offset # AM20783 or # AM20790 16x6 inch, 8 on 6-1/2 with 5.35 inch offset, and 4.77 inch diameter pilot hole # F2513166055 16x6 inch, 8 on 6-1/2 with 5.35 inch offset, and 4.88 inch diameter...

  • Which Dually Wheels Fit 235/80-16 Trailer Tires
    Your 235/80-16 tires will fit on wheels that are 6 to 7-1/2 inches wide, where the tire rides, so they will fit on dually wheel # F2513166055. This wheel has an 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern and 4.77 inch diameter center pilot hole. We also have # TTW660865SDX2C with the same bolt pattern but with a 4.88 inch diameter pilot hole. We also have white version # AM20783 for the 4.77 pilot hole.

  • Dually Wheel for a Texas Bragg Trailer with 7.50-16 Tires
    The 7.50-16 is a light truck tire size sometimes used on trailers. It fits a 16x6 inch wheel. We have several wheels in this size with an 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern but since you have dually wheels you will want # AM20783. I have included a link to a video review of this wheel for you.

  • What is the Offset for Provider ST205/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire w/15 Wheel - 5 on 5-1/2
    The wheel in Provider ST205/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire w/ 15" White Spoke Wheel - 5 on 5-1/2 - LR C # A15R655WS has a zero offset. The mounting surface of the wheel is centered with the tire. This zero offset is by far the most common for trailers. If a trailer tire has an offset, that means the mounting surface is not centered. A positive offset would put the wheel farther underneath the trailer like # AM20783, and a negative offset would put the tire slightly farther out from the...
