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 Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


The new wheels are beautiful. The best part is they are made in the U.S.A.!
Two gripes:
1. One of the wheels showed up with a couple minor scratches on them. Not ideal but given they are trailer wheels and I am on a time line to get racing, I didn't want to go through the process of exchanging it.
2. I wish they offered more options for colors and maybe a chrome or polished aluminum.

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 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!

The rims were as advertised. Was nice to find the correct size (width rim) when most available galvanized rims are on the minimum width size for a 205/75 tire size.

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I was sent a one year anniversary from etrailer for a review and I went ahead and purchased two more rims for our trailer fleet. I was very happy on how quick they shipped. Its hard to find the 8-lug white rims in any of the trailer stores in Houston and I'm glad I can rely on etrailer for avaliabilty and quick shipping.

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


I was looking for inexpensive 16" nice looking wheels to replace my 15s on my enclosed car hauler so I could upgrade the tires. They shipped quick, were true round and held balance weights with no problems. After a year, the finish still looks nice. I am not disappointed.

The website was so easy to navigate and I found exactly what I was looking for and for a great price. My rim was shipped so fast and packaged nicely so would not get damaged. etrailer is definitely the go to site for me now.

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I received the wheels…they were both in one big box(way too big for the wheels) with on piece of cardboard stuck between them. No other packing of any kind and metal box staples poking through all sides. As you could imagine both wheels are very scratched. I just spent 45 mins taping and painting my brand new wheels. I have not mounted them yet so I cannot speak of the wheels other than the very disappointing packing efforts!

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Needed 15" wheels on my travel trailer so I could run load E tires. I wanted the same brand of wheel that was on it from the factory. Found these and they were perfect. Good price, worked as expected. Would recommend buying here.

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


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


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.

Review from a similar Mini Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


So the holes for the valve stems were too small for these valve stems. I have had to purchase others that do fit. Can I return the ones that I bought to you?


Comments
Those valve stems are meant to be used with tires that would have a PSI of over 100. The valve stems that would work for you would be part # AM20903
Americana Rubber, Snap-In Valve Stem - 1-1/4" Long - Up to 65 psi
$3.25
that works with tires up to 65 PSI or part # AM20904
Americana High Pressure Rubber Snap-In Valve Stem - 1-1/2" Long - Up to 80 psi
$1.26
that works with tires up to 80 PSI.

  • Gray 16 x 6 Trailer Wheel wtih 8 on 6-1/2 Bolt Pattern and 5/8 Inch Offset
    We have a wheel that's pretty close to what you're looking for but not exact. The closest wheel we have to what you're looking for is part # AM20797. It's a silver steel Dexstar modular wheel, with an 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern. It measures 16 by 6 inches and has a 4.9 inch pilot hole with a 0.5 positive offset.

  • High PSI Valve Stem Recommendation for Dexstar Wheel part # AM20797
    The recommended high pressure valve stem for use with the wheel part # AM20797 that you referenced is the Over 100 PSI Valve Stem part # AM20906. This is the recommended valve stem for wheels/tires that call for around 110 psi.

  • Difference Between Silver and Silver Sparkle Dexstar Trailer Wheel
    The silver sparkle powdercoat of the Dexstar Steel Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20797 that you mentioned has more of a metallic like finish compared to the flatter silver powder coat of the # AM20760 which is similar in all other ways. We do not have any chrome wheels. Chrome has a tendency to flake over time which is why we don't generally see it anymore.

  • 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.

  • Steel 16 Inch Mod Wheel With 8 on 6-1/2 Bolt Pattern with +0.5 Offset
    The Vesper Steel Modular Trailer Wheel you'd looked at, part # MX59FR has a zero offset, but we do have something that will work for you. For a similar modular trailer wheel in silver with a +0.5 offset, use the Dexstar steel mod wheel, part # AM20797. The wheel has an 8 on 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern and a 3750 lb per wheel capacity. If you click the provided video link, my buddy Jeff will run you through the features of the wheel.

  • Recommended 16 x 6 Wheel for Wood Chipper
    Since you believe your wheel has a zero offset (mounting pad of wheel is equidistant along width of rim) I wouldn't recommend going with the # AM20797 wheel with the positive offset as it will move the wheel 1/2 inch closer to the trailer frame. Both the # MX59FR Maxion Vesper and Dexstar # AM20794 have a zero offset, both have an 8 on 6-1/2 inch pilot bolt pattern and the same pilot diameter. If I had to choose between the two, I'd go with the # MX59FR, because of its higher 4460 lb...

  • 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.
