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"

Bought a few of these for our 4 horse living quarters horse trailer. Trailer is super heavy when fully loaded. Wheels have been excellent. Would recommend etrailer.

It is unusual for these wheels to crack. Do you still have the wheel? Would you be able to send a picture? They have a weigtht capacity of 3,960 lbs and a two year warranty.

Dustin

5/8/2023

I do not have the wheel, it was on my 5th wheel and I forgot it at the tire shop In my rush to get back on the road for my nieces wedding, that is why I did not ask for warranty. It cracked where the center attached to the rim hoop. I run 80 psi in my tires. I am disappointed in the quality but everything has gone down in quality these days so I chalked it up to experience.



by:

Great price for a great wheel.



by:

Happ so far no problems

Exactly what I expected - shipping, fit, quality, etc.... all of it.

A year later, all is perfect with the rims.



by:

2 sets of wheels are warped out of round. Made my trailer shake terribly bad. I believe this is a manufacturing defect. I have ran these wheels in the past with no issues but both sets received are out of round. Had to order a different brand unfortunately chinese wheel but at least they are not warped.



by:

I’m very happy with this extremely heavy duty wheel,
Exactly what I needed for my heavy duty trailer with a load range g tires.

I purchased this for a second spare (RV) for our trip to Alaska. Good quality and fast shipping

No issues at all however purchased as a second spare for a trip to Alaska



by:

Exact replacement for my horse trailer. Had to buy a spare because BISON furnished a spare but it was 6 lug and not 8 lug. By the time I needed a spare it was out of warranty. Not a good time to find out it does not fit with horses in trailer and on side of the road. Word of advice to anyone! Something else to check before leaving the lot with a new trailer. Fast ship! Thanks etrailer!

Perfect!



by:

Nice wheels. Hole four valve stem was rough and we had to file down to get Val sent to seal

Purchased these for spares for our horse trailer. They are heavy! Good strong rims. We are putting these on a 38 ft horse trailer with LQ. Each axel is rated at 7k so these rims were perfect for that.

I will be using these wheels on my horse trailer as well. My current wheels are gray but Im having trouble finding that color. Does the silver wheel that you ordered have a matte finish as opposed to shiny? I prefer the matte finish. Thanks for your help.



by:

As always when i order from etrailer they provide excellent service and communication.

Thank you!!!!



by:

Etrailer sets the example for positive shopping online! Friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable folks taking the orders. My items were packed to protect them during shipping, and shipping was unbelievably fast. I will definitely do business with etrailer in the future and will recommend them to my friends.

Thank you etrailer and their great employees who helped me with my order!

Joe A.



by:

I purchased these rims because they're made in the USA. They're well made and are heavier due to increased load capacity. Rims were true and had very little run out, unlike the chinese made rims that came originally on my trailer. I would purchase these rims again.



by:

I ordered the Mini Mod Trailer Rim and Pop Up Roof Vents...the customer service was excellent and it was delivered very quickly. We will definitely remember your company in the future!
Sincerely, Ron Mc

  • Replacement Rim For A 8120 Featherlight Stock Trailer
    The Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20794 will work for your 8120 featherlight stock trailer if your existing rims are 16 inch by 6 inch and have a bolt pattern of 8 on 6-1/2. I will attach a link below showing how to measure your bolt pattern. The diameter of the wheel will be stamped on the sidewall of the trailer. The last two numbers will be the diameter of the rim. The picture below the last two numbers are 15 which would indicate that the rim would be 15 inches. The rim...

  • Recommended Replacement For Dexstar # 17-293 With 16x6 8 Lug Rim
    While searching for a replacement for your Dexstar #17-293, I found a great option that is the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20794. It has a zero offset with 3,960 pound capacity at 110 psi. It has an 8 lug on 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern and is compatible with 1/2-20 or 9/16-18 wheel studs. Sorry to hear about your bent rim. All kinds of things can cause a rim to bend...rough roads, debris in road, etc. Regardless of cause, bent rims are not fun! If this wheel is not an...

  • Can Wheels from a 2004 Ford F-350 be Used on a Trailer
    No, you shouldn't use vehicle wheels on a trailer. Among other things, the offset (how far or close to the trailer the wheel is) is different on vehicles than trailers. Often times the bolt hole mounting patterns are not exactly right and the pilot (center) holes are usually not the correct sizes. Trailer tires and wheels are designed for more vertical load than passenger vehicle tires and wheels and for all of these reasons it is not recommended to use vehicle wheels for a trailer. I...

  • Replacement Wheel for a 2015 Jayco Greyhawk Motorhome with a 2015 Ford E-450 Super Duty Chassis
    If your 2015 Jayco Greyhawk Motorhome with a 2015 Ford E-450 Super Duty chassis utilizes the common 8 on 6-1/2" bolt pattern, then I recommend the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel, part # AM20794. I've linked to a video review of this wheel for you to look at. This wheel has a silver powder coat, so if you'd like a different color wheel, I've also linked to a list our 16" 8 on 6-1/2" wheels for you to peruse.

    It looks like your Dexstar 17-293 wheel is 16x6 and has an 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern. We have several wheels that will match this wheel, but I recommend going with the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel - 16" x 6" Rim - 8 on 6-1/2 - White Powder Coat # AM20789 . I've also linked our entire selection of 16x6 wheels from Dexstar in the event that you decide you wanted to switch all of your wheels to a chrome/silver like the # AM20794

  • Why aren't Trailer Wheels Rated for Max Air Pressure
    Typically wheels like the Dexstar Mod Wheel part # AM20794 are limited by the valve stem in terms of max air pressure which is why the wheel doesn't have it's own psi limit. For a higher rated valve stem we have the Americana Valve Stem part # AM20906 which is rated for over 100 psi and fits this wheel.

The prices are listed on all the product pages. We also have a wheel and rim combo for a 235/85R16 tire. It is the Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire w/ 16" White Wheel item # AM35099.

  • Can a Trailer Use Wheels that Have Different Weight Capacities
    As long as the wheels are all rated for the weight of your trailer you would have no problem using the # AM20794 and # AM20760. Them having different weight capacities isn't a problem in it of itself, but if the combined weight capacities of all the wheels wasn't enough for the weight of your trailer that would be where the problem is. Both the wheels would have enough capacity to be used on a 7k axle so you would be fine.

  • 16 inch Trailer Wheel with 6 Lug Bolt Pattern that Can Handle 110 PSI
    As long as you install a valve stem like the part # AM20906 in the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20794 it would do just fine handling 110 psi. Typically it is the valve stem that is the limiting factor for tire pressure on a wheel and the one I recommended would handle 110 psi without a problem.

  • Recommended 16 Wheels with Steel Powder Coat for 2007 Mobile Suites 36TK3
    The Dexstar Steel Powder Coated # AM20760 are a good choice, but you also may want to consider looking at the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel - 16" x 6" Rim - 8 on 6-1/2 - Silver Powder Coat # AM20794 because they've got a 3900-lbs per wheel capacity compared to the 3750-lbs capacity of the # AM20760. This is a small difference, but I generally think the extra strength is worth it in this case when you're talking about 4 wheels and a trailer with a GVWR of roughly 14000-lbs. Either...

  • Differences Between Silver Steel Modular Trailer Wheel 16x6 inch 8 on 6-1/2 inch Bolt Pattern
    The four rims you referenced are all VERY similar. They are all the same size, bolt pattern, pilot diameter, and very similar finishes. The # AM20797 has a 3,750 lb capacity and has a bit of flake in the powdercoat. The # AM20794 has a 3,960 lb capacity and has the standard silver powdercoat The # AM20760 has 3,750 lb capacity and standard silver powdercoat.

  • Recommended Torque Specs for Lug Nuts on 16 Inch Rim
    The torque spec is determined by the diameter of the wheel stud, and not the size of the wheel. Here's recommended torque specs for commonly found wheel stud sizes: • 7/16 Inch 70-80 ft/lbs • 1/2 inch 75-85 ft/lbs • 9/16 inch 135-145 ft/lbs I've linked to our series of help articles about trailer wheels and tires, which you might find helpful.

  • Replacement Trailer Wheels with 4.75 Pilot Hole Diameter
    We carry rims with a 4.77 pilot hole, like # LHHA420, 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.

  • 235/80-16 Trailer Tire Mounted to 16 x 6 Silver Mod Wheel with 8 on 6-1/2 Bolt Pattern
    Unfortunately, we don't offer the Kenda # AM10248 235/80R16 tire mounted on a # AM20794 Dexstar 16x6 steel mod wheel, but you can purchase the wheel and tire separately and have them mounted locally at your favorite tire shop. As an option, we do offer a Westlake 235/80-16 radial tire mounted to a 16 x 6 sliver mod wheel with an 8 on 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern as part # LHAW133.

  • Limiting Factor on Trailer Wheel for Maximum Tire Pressure
    Yes, a 16 x 6-1/2 inch wheel such as the HWT # AM22658HWTB paired with a high pressure metal valve stem like the Americana # AM20906 that you referenced will allow for a tire that has a maximum air pressure of 110 psi. The valve stem itself is usually what dictates any limit with regards to tire pressure so as long as you remain under the combined weight capacity of the wheels with the trailer weight you are good to go with this setup.

  • Replacement ST235/80R16 Trailer Tire with 8-Bolt Hole Wheel
    I recommend using the Provider ST235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire w/ 16" Silver Mod Wheel - 8 on 6-1/2 # TA99VR for your application. We don't carry the Carlisle or Trailer King tires and I think the 235/80R18 tire size you mentioned is probably 235/80R16 as an 18" wheel is massive for a trailer. This is rated for a Load Range E (3,520 lbs at 80 psi) and is a radial tire so you'll want to make sure your current tires have the same specs for best performance. Attached is a review video for...

This wheel is powder coated for a lasting durable finish. It has a 3,960 lbs per wheel which is our highest rated option in silver. It fits both 1/2" and 9/16" lug studs.
