Lionshead Roadside Assistance Program

This wheel comes with complimentary roadside assistance for 2 years. If your RV or trailer has a flat tire, call the help line and a technician will come change the flat for you. You can call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year from anywhere in the United States, Canada, or Puerto Rico.

Steel Lug Nut Inserts

This aluminum wheel comes with steel inserts in the lug nut wells. The inserts are pressed into the aluminum, and they help prevent the holes from wearing down over time. This ensures that the wheel stays secured to your trailer hub and that you won't have to constantly retorque the lug nuts.

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"

E-Trailer had exactly what I needed and it was here in 2 days


Ordered 8 lug 16 x 7 Polished Aluminum rim. Shipped 6 lug 15 x 6 steel rim. I know, it is hard to tell the difference, right?

Called trailer customer service. Oh, that is wrong, I we have the right one in stock, I will see if I can get it shipped next week, we are busy.

If you are going to order, call to make sure they are not too busy to get it right!


Nice rims, fast shipping, excellent customer service.


Excellent customer service.


Excellent service and great product! Very fast shipping


It is unfortunately not a perfect match to the other two wheels on that side of the trailer, but it arrived safe and appears to be what I need. Hairline crack causing slow leak in the wheel being replaced.


I had aluminum rims on fifth wheel trailer (not sure what brand they were) but the aluminum would hair line crack rendering the wheel use less. I called James at etrailer, told him my problem. I wanted a rim as close to the original as possible and he came up with a solution. As I followed him on my laptop he said you’ll also need these valve stems, these wheel nuts, these Center caps. In a matter of minutes I placed the order and knew exactly what I was getting because of James expertise. I highly recommend the lions head aluminum rim.



Excellent no problems


Light weight sturdy rims! They fit perfectly on my 97 F-350.


Higher quality than the oem rim. Unfortunately not an exact match. Still very satisfied.


I conducted extensive research locally and could not find the right rims for my 5th wheel trailer. These rims were a perfect match, as described and a perfect match match for the ones on my 5th. Very high quality. Very good price. I ordered on Monday, expedited shipping and received them on Wednesday. Unreal.....Sheila was the call taker. Sheila is the best, she went out of her way to make sure I received my rims on an emergency basis. I have purchased numerous items over the years from e-trailer, this is by far my best experience ordering. (Never had a bad one) E-trailer came through once again. I am looking forward to a long relationship with e-trailer when I need items for my 5th wheel and camper.


Wheels were damaged beyond acceptable condition. Packaging was horrible I am sending the entire order back everything is either bend or scratch terribly.


Looks good. I will know more when I get a tire mounted and put on the trailer. I didn't realize that it came with a valve stem installed. I guess I have a spare valve stem now.


Service was excellent and the wheel was delivered in 3 days as I was told it would be. I haven’t mounted the wheel on my 5th wheel trailer yet but it looks like the factory wheel.


Does what it should


Great service, great products . Just do not like paying sales tax. I have a business in Missouri and you ship in Missouri. Would like to get setup for exempt (resale)


Poorly packaged and some got scratched. I was credited back some money. But I was wanting a good product but a refund. The hassle of shipping back and waiting wasn't worth it. So in took the partial refund.


Received my order in less time than was stated. Will be glad to get these on my new trailer just as the sets I have two other trailers already.




A near perfect match for the wheels which were already on the trailer, easy to order and very good response time.


Exact Rim that we were looking for. Don't forget to purchase the steel air valve for this rim.


Great quality,Nice polish,Fast shipping !Thanks

David G.


Great quality.holding up well!


As always etrailer performed beyond expectations! Thanks!!


Great service! Super fast and efficient. So happy that it was shipped to Canada with not border issues and during the craziness of Covid-19. Thank you for the great service! This website is bookmarked for future use!


Great product, product came as described and on time.


So far so good after one year of ownership

  • Looking for Lionshead 16 x 7 Aluminum Modular Trailer Wheel with 8 on 6-1/2 Inch Wheel Bolt Pattern
    The Lionshead # LHJM513 is a 16x7 aluminum trailer wheel with an 8 on 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern. Each wheel has a 3750 lb capacity, or 7500 lbs per axle, so they'll work perfectly on your car hauler with 7K axles. We do indeed offer them, you can purchase by using the provided link.

  • Availability of Aluminum Trailer Wheel with 8 Lug Bolt Pattern
    For trailer wheels that have an 8 lug bolt pattern and are aluminum we have a few options available that you can see at the provided link. The most popular though is the part # LHJM513 which is a modular 8 lug wheel that is 16 inch in diameter and 7 inches wide. I attached a review video for this wheel for you to check out as well.

  • Does the Aluminum Modular Trailer Wheel - 16" x 7" Rim - 8 on 6-1/2 Have An Offset
    The Aluminum Modular Trailer Wheel part # LHJM513 is a zero offset wheel which means the hub mounting face is centered in the wheel therefore, the backspacing is half of the wheel's width. This wheel is 7" wide so the backspacing is around 3.5" plus the lip. There are very few trailers wheels with offset, nearly all are 0. Unfortunately, I don't think you'll be able to find a trailers wheel with 4.5" backspacing so you may want to consider alternative options.

  • What is Offset of Lionshead Aluminum Trailer Wheel # LHJM513
    The great thing about trailer wheels is they basically all have a zero offset or very close to a zero offset. The aluminum trailer wheel part # LHJM513 that you referenced is no exception to this as it also has a zero offset. The backspacing then is 4 inches which is what you'd measure from your hub face to your trailer frame to determine if there's clearance or not.

  • How Much Do the LHJM513 Aluminum Modular Trailer Wheels Weigh
    The Aluminum Modular Trailer Wheels # LHJM513 are a 16" x 7" wheel with an 8 on 6-1/2" bolt pattern that weigh approximately 20-lbs per wheel. These are a light weight aluminum wheel that will help resist corrosion and are perfect for boat trailers.

  • Can the Aluminum Modular Trailer Wheel LHJM513 be Used on a Horse Trailer?
    Yes, it can. The Aluminum Modular Trailer Wheel item # LHJM513 is a 16" x 7" Rim with an 8 on 6-1/2 lug pattern. It has a 3,750 lbs capacity per wheel and a pilot hole size of 4.88". So as long as your trailer doesn't exceed the combined capacities you will be good to use it on a horse trailer. You will want to use a Americana Metal, Bolt-In Valve Stem item # AM20906 for each wheel.

  • What Determines Maximum PSI Pressure Rating of Lion's Head Trailer Wheel LHJM513
    For the Lion's Head 16 x 7 Aluminum Modular Trailer Wheel # LHJM513 the maximum psi pressure will depend on the specific valve stem installed when your tires are mounted. We have valve stems, all shown on the linked page, that vary in their psi pressure ratings. For higher pressures over 100-psi a bolt-on metal valve stem like # AM20906 is preferred.

  • Lug Size on Hub Does Not Match Lug Hole Size on Wheels
    To answer your question, yes; 16" wheels do come with different sized bolt sizes. There are going to be 16" wheels that can be used with 5/8" studs, but they're going to require the use of flange nuts as opposed to lug nuts. This is because they are hub centric wheels, which are centered by the center bore of the wheel hub. When you have the 1/2" studs, you'll be using regular lug nuts to secure and center the wheel - these are lug centric wheels. If you wanted to go ahead and change...

  • Wheel Bolt Size to Use with Lionshead Aluminum Modular Trailer Wheel # LHJM513
    The Lionshead Aluminum Modular Trailer Wheel # LHJM513 referenced in your question will work with either 1/2"-20 or 9/16"-18 wheel bolt sizes. This is a really nice aluminum 16 inch wheel that features a 3,750 pound weight capacity and a sleek modular design. Its 4.88 inch pilot diameter is compatible with center caps like the Lionshead # LHCS109 to give it an even cleaner finish. I have attached a short video demonstration on this wheel that you can also check out.

  • Do Lionshead Trailer Wheels Use Steel or Aluminum Torque Values for Lug Nuts
    This is a really good question. We've actually asked Lionshead this before and since the wheels have the steel inserts they torque value to use would be for a steel wheel. So for the part # LHJM513 you'd want to use 90-120 ft lbs.

  • Tire Sizes Compatible with Dexstar Conventional 16 x 6 Steel Wheel AM20766
    A 16 x 6 trailer wheel like # AM20766 can accept the trailer tire sizes 235/80-16, 235/85-16 and 7.50-16LT which we offer. But a wider 245 tire (9.6-inches wide) needs a rim that is 6-1/2 to 8-inches wide such as 16 x 7 wheel # LHJM513.

  • Availability of 16 inch Trailer Wheel that is Aluminum and Has 8 Lug Bolt Pattern
    I attached a page to all of the 16 inch trailer wheels we offer with an 8 lug bolt pattern since we have so many. My favorite is probably the # LH39FR if you like black and silver wheels or for a more traditional aluminum wheel we have the mod wheel part # LHJM513.

  • Trailer Wheel Replacement that is Size 16x7
    The wheel size you have is a 16 inch diameter that is 7 inches wide which is not super common but we do have a coupler options like with the Aluminum Mod wheel part # LHJM513 that has a 3,750 lb or for a more interesting look we also have the Aluminum Eagle Wheel part # LH32FR which has a 4,080 lb capacity. Both of these have the same 8 on 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern.

  • Best All Steel Lug Nuts for Forest River Cherokee Wolf Pup
    The Forest River Cherokee Wolf Pup has aluminum wheels so you'll need to use the long acorn style wheel lug nuts. I have some great options for this but I highly recommend the one-piece style so you don't have to worry about them bulging out and become difficult to remove. For this, we have both stainless steel options like part # KALN1375S which are the best all around lug nut and we standard chrome plated like part # CE16720 which are the runner-up.

  • Can I Replace a 13 Ply Tire with a 10 Ply Tire That Has the Same Load Rating
    We don't currently have ST255/85R16 Radial Trailer Tires, however I have two choices for you. You could go with the Westlake ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range G # LHWL410. They have an L speed rating of 75 mph and are 14-ply with a 4,400-lb max load at 110 psi ply tires. We also have the Provider ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range G # TTWPRG235R16.

This is compared to the steel modular options that are around 33 lbs each. 8-10 lbs here and there will definitely make a difference. What other areas are you open to looking at? Axles?

  • Aluminum Wheel PSI Fit with Tires Requiring 110 PSI
    Trailer wheels like the Aluminum Modular Trailer Wheel - 16" x 7" Rim - 8 on 6-1/2 - Silver # LHJM513 you referenced are not rated for a psi. Many wheel assemblies come with a valve stem rated for 65 psi or 80 psi at most. However, when a wheel like the one you asked the question from mentions a high pressure metal valve stem is included, this means that wheel will have a stem similar to # AM20906. This will hold the 110 lbs you referenced. For your compatible tires, I recommend the...

  • Replacement Wheels for 4-Star LQ Horse Trailer With 235/85-16 Tires
    Rim width isn't likely a concern since most 235/85-16 tires will fit a variety of trailer wheel widths. For example, the # AM10295 fits 16" x 6", 16" x 6-1/2", 16" x 7", and 16" x 7-1/2" rims. The GVWR of the trailer is nice to know so you can make sure the wheel capacity is enough to handle the trailer and whatever it is carrying. We have a few different wheels that could work for your application. If you aren't against powder coat you could use the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel...

  • Does Pilot Hole Size Have to Match to Use Lionshead Trailer Wheel
    The Aluminum Modular Trailer Wheel - 16" x 7" Rim - 8 on 6-1/2 # LHJM513 has a 4.88" pilot diameter and will work for your horse trailer. Ther pilot diameter does not have to match your old wheel because this wheel fits over the lugs of your hub, and not the pilot hole, so you just need the correct size lug nuts to match your hub. This wheel is compatible with the Lionshead Trailer Wheel Lug Nut - 9/16"-18 # LHLR110. For a center cap you can use the Lionshead Trailer Wheel Center Cap...

  • Does Tire Pressure Matter to Wheels in the Same Manner as Tires?
    The tire pressure isn't a factor with wheels (but valve stems are pressure rated so your existing ones may need to be switched if they're not rated for your new tires); for this reason it's not going to be a concern as much as the load rating/weight capacity of the tires and wheels being consistent; this is simply from a standpoint of making sure that you're maximizing your carrying capacity, which is usually the purpose of upgrading. When towing, you're always rated by your lowest rated...
