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"

Video Transcript for Dexstar Tires and Wheels - Wheel Only - AM20793 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Dexstar 16" by 6" white steel mini-mod trailer wheel with the 8 on 6-1/2" bolt pattern. This wheel is a sturdy steel construction, gives you excellent corrosion resistance because they do a white powder coat finish over an e-coat primer on the front and the back of the wheel. This wheel's a modular design, or mini-mod as they call it. What that means, it has the round holes all the way around the design of the wheel. This is a high-quality wheel, meets the DOT, Department of Transportation specifications. This wheel is made in the USA by Dexstar. A few specs on this, the rim dimension is 16", and to measure the diameter, we'll take a tape measure, and it's always measured inside to inside, so bead seat to bead seat.

If we put the ruler on that, you can see 16" for the diameter. The width on the wheel which is the same way, is measured bead seat to bead seat, so the inside, you're going to see 6", so 16 by 6". The bolt pattern is an eight on 6-1/2" bolt pattern. On a wheel that's an even number of lugs, in this case, eight, it's pretty simple to measure the bolt pattern, all you have to do is pick any hole, let's say this one, measure from the center of that hole directly across to the center of the hole right across from it. We'll take our tape measure and go center to center, and there's your 6-1/2" bolt pattern, so eight lugs, 6-1/2" bolt pattern. This wheel will fit a wheel lug nut size of either 1/2" by 20 or 9/16 by 18.

The pilot hole diameter, that's the large hole here on the center where it goes over the hub on your trailer, measure that, it's going to be right at 4.9". This wheel does come with a slight positive offset, and when I mention offset, what that basically is is if you take where this mounting surface is, when you put it onto the trailer, this will go up against the hub on the trailer, when this is right at the center of the wheel that's a zero offset. If this mounting surface moves either way, it could be either positive or negative, this wheel happens to have a positive 1/2" offset, and what that's saying is that this mounting surface is measuring a little more towards the front of the wheel, 1/2", so that will pull the wheel and tire closer to the trailer. The weight capacity on this wheel is 3,960-lbs, but that should do it for the review on the Dexstar 16" by 6" white steel mini-mod trailer wheel with the eight on 6-1/2" bolt pattern.

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


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.

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.


Comments
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.

I replaced a couple of 25 year old rusty spoke wheels with these Dexstars. They look great and updated the trailer nicely!

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


The product appears to be as advertised and delivery was quick. Unfortunately, the two wheels were packaged together in the same box which obviously wasn't going to ship very well due to the weight. The wheels arrived falling out of the box and were chipped up from either falling out of the box or scraping the ground in transit. I'm disappointed in the packaging and can't in good faith blame FEDEX.

Customer Service will contact you.

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Very high quality steel wheel (made in USA) made it affordably possible to replace the inferior quality, unsafe gravity cast Chinese wheels and crappy OEM tires on our Hyperlite XLR. Upon purchase of the XLR, we immediately bought a set of five so that we could run the Michelin RIB tire at 80psi. No "China Bomb" blow-outs, no problems. Everyone should do this for safety and piece of mind. These wheels should be industry standard!


Comments
One year later we are still enjoying the quality and piece of mind these wheels have delivered Along with the Michelin tires, we have yet to have any failures at all. 3500 mile trip to Fort Worth and back...no problems. The Dexstar wheels not only are performing perfectly, they still have a factory-fresh appearance due to in my opinion quality construction and quality finishing. They still look new! These wheels are the best and they allow us to use the best tires. Very pleased with the Dexstar wheel.

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


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.

Thanks for checking back with me , as you can see the 1998 trailer where is desperately in need of new tires,rims & fenders very please with the service receive parts in a reasonable manner time replaced also the original factory hubs with new true ride electric brakes, had one half-inch chrome wheel lug nut not fit on the stud check back with sale was great to work with them replaced with new one very pleased with the results received within two days also learning by experience using Grease tightening down chrome nuts on this way it did not cause rust to appear on the Chrome edge. Replaced many parts on my other trailers please with the etrailer products thanks again.

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


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.

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I don't have any issues with the product itself, but the packaging was less than ideal. The wheels were able to move around alot in the packaging, and two were packaged together with very little protection, so there was quite a bit of abrasion on the lip of two. I need these asap, so not bothering with returns/exchanges.

Only place online I know of to get black 8 lug steel wheels. Put 5 of these on my all black dump trailer with brand new chrome lug nuts and they look NASTY! They are also rated for the heavy weight I need unlike some other knock offs out there. Long time Etrailer customer here and they have so much selection compared to anyone else they keep sucking me back in!

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

A year later, we are very happy with these wheels. We put Maxxus 8008 trailer tires on them and, in addition to being a very sturdy wheel, they look great.

Another year gone by, the wheels still look great and are working out great on our travel trailer.

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I purchased a set of four new wheels and associated tires for my trailer, replacing the stock cast aluminum originals. The wheels have a great appearance and of good construction. The powder coat finish a must for long term corrosion protection. One of the four wheels experienced crack whil on the maiden voyage, damaged the tire and required a replacement. This purchase is for the replacement wheel. The damaged wheel will be returned to e-trailer and hopefully credited for purchase price and shipping of this replacement unit, pursuant to the OEM (Dexstar) warranty

Just what I needed. The guide provided on your website allowed me to order with confidence. With two day delivery, I already have a tire mounted on the wheel and is ready to install on my camper. Still waiting for my RV dealer to get back with me on parts availability. Couldn’t be happier.

  • Wheel Offset And Backspacing Of The Dexstar Mini-Mod 16" Wheels
    Backspacing and offset are terms used to look at the same thing in a different way. Backspacing is described as the distance from the center of the hub to the inside edge of the wheel at the bead seat whereas offset is the distance from the center of the wheel to its mounting face. On a wheel with a zero offset, the backspacing will be slightly larger than half of the width of the wheel because the wheel width is measured from bead seat to bead seat (see photo). It is not the overall width...

  • What is the Difference Between the Dexstar Mini Mod White Wheels # AM20785 and # AM20793
    The difference between the two part numbers # AM20785 and # AM20793 is the weight capacity which is due to the fact the # AM20793 has a .5 inch offset which slightly lowers the capacity to 3,530 lbs instead of 3,960 lbs like what the # AM20785. I attached a picture of what the Dexstar white mini mod wheels look like too.
