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 - AM20797 Review

Today we're going to review part number A-M-2-0-7-9-7. This is the Deckstar 16" by 6" silver sparkle mini mod steel trailer wheel with an offset, and the 8 on 6 1/2" hole pattern. Now this wheel is a sturdy steel construction. It is the mini mod design, or also known as a modular design. When they say that, that means that it uses a round holes all the way around the wheel for the design. Now the finish on this, it uses a silver sparkle powder coat finish over an ecoat primer.

Gives you excellent corrosion resistance, and the reason I mention it's a silver sparkle, it is different than the normal silver finish. This one, actually, if you look close into the wheel, it does have a little bit of a sparkle to it. This is a high quality wheel. Meets the department of transportation specifications. This is a Deckstar brand wheel, which is made in the USA.

Now a few specs on this. We're going to start with measuring the diameter. The diameter is always measured inside to inside, where the tire beads would seat. If we take a ruler, the diameter on this wheel. You can see inside to inside's right at 16". Now the width on this wheel, again, it's bead seat to bead seat, so inside to inside.

6", so 16" by 6" is the diameter of the width. This does use a bolt pattern of an 8 on 6 1/2" bolt pattern. If you go to measure that on a wheel that's an even number of lugs, all you have to do is pick any of the holes like this one and measure from the center of that hole, directly across to the center of the hole right across from it. If we take our tape measure again, and go center to center, you can see right at 6 1/2", so 8 lugs, 6 1/2" hole pattern. Does use the wheel lug size of 1/2" by 20.

Or 9/16" by 18. The pilot hole diameter, it's the large hole in the center of the wheel, this goes over the hub on your trailer. Diameter of the opening on this one is 4.9", and this wheel does have a weight capacity of 3,750 pounds, and then the last feature that's very important is this wheel does have an offset. It's a positive 1/2" offset. On an offset on a wheel, basically what your . What they're measuring is most trailer wheels use a 0 offset, so what that means is this mounting surface on the inside of the wheel that goes up against the hub on your trailer. When this mounting surface is right at the center of the wheel, that's a 0 offset. Now when it goes positive, that means that mounting surface moves towards the face, or the outside of the wheel. When it's a negative offset, that mounting surface would move towards the back of the wheel. In this wheel it's a positive 1/2" offset, so this mounting surface right here actually moves 1/2" towards the outside of the wheel, the face of the wheel. When it does that, it will move the tire closer to the trailer. That should do it for the review on part number A-M-2-0-7-9-7. This is the Deckstar 16" by 6" silver sparkle mini mod steel trailer wheel, with an offset, and the 8 on 6 1/2" bolt pattern.

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. 139768


Comments
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.

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


The rims where they are welded could have a better finish where the o.d of the rim meets, and the welding on the back side still had pieces of mig wire sticking out to get your hand stick with the wire. I had four new rims already that I could not use because of the positive offset. They were made in china and had a finshed better finish, and I hate to say that. I really expected better quality come from a Dexstar Usa product. Maybe alike of quality control. 215432

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. 239347

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! 269304

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! 383333


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.

  • 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...

  • Best Replacement Tires and Wheels for 225/90R16 and 7.50R16 Tires on a Livestock Trailer
    I have just what you need. You can absolutely use 235/85R16 tires in place of your current tire sizes. They will be a hair wider, but not enough to make a difference. Diameter-wise they will be almost identical. In fact, I was in a similar situation where I had 2 different tire sizes on our 30 ft livestock trailer at the farm, one of them being the 7.50 R 16, and I put 4 of the Provider F835 Tires, # TTWPRG235R16, and USA Made Dextar Steel Powder-coated wheels # AM20750, on it a little...
