Expert Answers about Americana

  • Need Replacement Center Cap for Americana Series 6, 15 Inch Wheel
  • Yes, the replacement center cap you will need for your Americana Series 6 Trailer Wheel is the Americana Trailer Wheel Center Cap, part # AM90091. This wheel center cap also has a shiny finish like the Americana Wheel Cap, part # AM90092. The representative at Americana informed me that the Wheel Center Cap # AM90091 will fit any bolt pattern of the Americana Series 6, 15 inch wheel.

  • What Is The Torque Specifications On A 9/16 Inch Lug Nut
  • The standard torque on a Redline Trailer Wheel Lug Nut - 9/16 inch, part # 6-53, is 135 to 145 ft lbs. This is the torque range that is normally used. If the instructions for the wheel are saying 110 ft lbs there might be a reason, like the wheel material, why they are recommending a lower torque. I think 170 ft lbs is too high for a 9/16 inch lug nut.

  • Do Trailers have Common Wheel Lug Nut Sizes for a Wheel Lock
  • There are common lug nut sizes found on trailers: 7/16, 1/2, 9/16, and 5/8 but the most common is 1/2 inch. If you can tell me the trailer weight capacity and wheel size/bolt pattern I can verify if they are likely to be 1/2 inch or another size. If they are 1/2 inch we have wheel lock # RG01-150. Another option is a lock such as # WI490. With it the lug nut size won't matter. I have linked a video of this lock and included a link to the wheel locks we carry.

  • Will Americana Baby Moon Trailer Wheel Center Cap Part # AM90086 Fit 15-Inch Rims on VW Trike
  • The Americana Baby Moon Trailer Wheel Center Cap, part # AM90086, is intended for 13-, 14- and 15-inch conventional 5-lug trailer wheels. Since your VW Trike wheels are 15 inches and have roughly a 9-1/2 inch snap ring around the hub, these 9-1/2-inch center caps may work. I have provided a link to one of the 15-inch wheels we offer that this center cap fits. I have also included a photo of the wheel with measurements that I took from a sample in our warehouse. You can compare these...

  • What is the Diameter of the Pilot Hole for Dexstar Trailer Wheel # AM20747
  • The center, or pilot, hole of the Dexstar Trailer Wheel # AM20747 you referenced is 4.27 inches in diameter. We do have a wheel with a 3.65 inch pilot hole with the Dexstar Trailer Wheel # AM20758. If your wheels are lug-centric, going with a wheel with a slightly larger pilot hole will not be an issue. However, if you have a hub-centric wheel, you will need for your pilot hole to be exactly the same size and, at this time, we do not carry a wheel with a 3-1/2 inch pilot hole. Lug-centric...

  • Do Tire Valve Stems Come Included with Tires That Are Purchased Unmounted
  • Tires that are sold alone, not pre-mounted on a rim/wheel, do not include valve stems but we do offer these as separate items. Tires that are pre-mounted and sold with a rim/wheel do of course include the valves. I have linked you to the various parts available, which include both metal and rubber types and in various psi ratings, such as # AM20906.

  • Which Size Wheel Will Fit 20.5 x 8.0 -10 Tire For Tennessee/Sylvan Pontoon Boat Trailer
  • A tire size of 20.5 x 8.0 -10, will fit a wheel that is 10 inches in diameter and is 6 inches wide, like the item you selected, Dexstar Steel Trailer Wheel, part # AM20046. This wheel has a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern, so you will need to measure the bolt pattern of your trailer to determine which wheel you will need (see FAQ). We also have available wheels with the tires mounted already, like the Kenda Trailer Tire With Wheel, part # AM3H400. I have linked all of our 10 inch wheel...

The EZ lube axle has a zerk fitting on the end of the spindle for filling the hub with grease.

  • Wheel Cap Availability for a Rockwood Trailer
  • We have several wheel caps (see link), but without know what rims you have on your trailer it would be hard for me to say for certain which you would need. If you measure the pilot diameter of the wheels you have you can select your pilot diameter from the filters and all of the correct caps will be listed. Or if you have a wheel like the part # AM90092 the wheel cap # AM90091 would be the correct center cap.

  • Will an ST205/75d14 Trailer Tire Fit On an ST215/75d14 Wheel
  • Every tire size has a range of wheel widths it can fit on. An ST205/75D14 will fit on 5, 5-1/2, 6, 6-1/2 inch wide wheels. For the slightly wider 215, it will fit on 5-1/2, 6, 6-1/2, 7 inch wide wheels. So as long as the wheel width is 5-1/2, 6 or 6-1/2 inches you can mount the smaller tire on the same wheel. Wheel widths are measured from bead seat to bead seat. This means the tire has to be off of the wheel to measure the width. I have included a helpful link to our series of trailer...

  • How To Determine Which Valve to Use for Wheel Rim Taskmaster TTWALS51345
  • I was able to go out to the warehouse and measure the valve hole diameter on the Taskmaster # TTWALS51345 you were looking at and found the hole measures .453 of an inch. The recommended valve stem for the Taskmaster Wheel # TTWALS51345 is the # AM20903 which is designed to fit into the .453 diameter hole on the wheel. The # AM20906 valve stem you were looking at is designed for rim hole diameters of .625 of an inch.

  • Are Dexstar Steel Spoke Trailer Wheels # AM20747 Compatible for Pickup Trucks
  • After speaking with my contact at Dexstar, I discovered the Dexstar Steel Spoke Trailer Wheels # AM20747 are not compatible for pickup trucks and are meant solely for use with trailers. This product is not Dept. of Transportation-approved for anything other than a trailer. Trailer wheels are not built to support passenger vehicles, both in weight and distances traveled. Automotive wheels are built for higher tolerances in both categories.

  • Torque and Installation of Americana Metal Valve Stem
  • The valve stem # AM20906 used to only include one grommet that fit the 0.625 hole diameter but now includes both. If it's tight and torqued down properly (Between 25 to 55 inch-pounds technically), the nut will not loosen during travel. Although, just like anything, it's never a bad idea to inspect before a long trip. Yes, the installation is the same. The nut should be tightened until the rubber grommet bulges slightly on the inside of the wheel. Technically the nut should be torqued...

  • Will the Baby Moon Center Cap Fit a 15 Inch Wheel on a 1938 Chevy Master Deluxe
  • You should not have a problem using the Americana Baby Moon Trailer Wheel Center Cap, # AM90086, with the 15 inch wheels on your 1938 Chevy Master Deluxe as long as the wheels you are using are the standard steel car wheels. This cap is designed to fit 13 to 15 inch conventional steel wheels with a 5-lug pattern. There should be a ring that sticks out surrounding the bolt holes. This cap will snap around the outer edge of that ring. I have attached a photo showing the ring I am...

  • What Type of Steel Trailer Wheel Accepts a Baby Moon Hubcap AM90086
  • The Americana Baby Moon Trailer Wheel Center Cap # AM90086 is intended for 13-, 14- and 15-inch conventional steel trailer wheels like # AM20504 that have three projections around their center, as shown in the linked photo. The cover's inside diameter of 9-1/4-inches matches up to the outsides of these projections for a snug snap-on fit. The cover will not work on spoke wheels with triangular cutouts like Taskmaster Steel 8-Spoke Trailer Wheel # TTW560545WS1.

  • How to Measure Hub Covers for a Trailer Wheels with 5 inch Diameter Pilot Holes
  • The pilot hole in the center of your wheel is most likely just shy of 5 inches. Normally, it will measure something like 4.90 or 4.88 inches in diameter. Using a precise measurement tool like a dial caliper is the best way to determine the exact measurement of the pilot hole. I have provided a link to all of the wheel covers that we carry for you to review. If you find that one of these measurements is correct for your wheel, the Americana Trailer Wheel Center Cap - Stainless Steel - 4.88...

  • Can Baby Moon Hubcap AM90086 Fit Over the Hub on a Boat Trailer
  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled Baby Moon hubcap # AM90086 It measures 2-11/16 inches from the inside center out to the edge. But please note that this hubcap fits 13 inch to 15 inch conventional steel wheels. There isn't a Baby Moon that fits an 8 inch tire and wheel. But if you can tell me the diameter of the center pilot holes on your wheels then I can make other recommendations.

  • Is a Metal Valve Stem Going to Help Prevent Valve Stem Failure
  • Going to a heavier duty valve stem certainly wouldn't hurt. The best way to prevent failure though is to be sure to use the proper air pressure in the tire. You would need to know the diameter of your rim where the valve stem goes through to be able to pick out the correct one. If that dimension is .625 inch then you would want the part # AM20906. This is the only metal one we carry.

  • How to Measure a Trailer Wheel Pilot Hole to Choose a Replacement Center Cap
  • The pilot hole on a wheel is the big center hole right in the middle of the wheel. It fits over the hub.. It can be tough to measure these with the wheel still on the trailer so you will want to remove the wheel and then it will be easier to measure. The best way to measure it would be to use digital or dial calipers. I can look up the tire you previously ordered, # AM10256, but since the wheels that the tire fits could have different size pilot holes I cannot go by the tire size alone....

  • Is There a Standard Weight Capacity for 13 inch Galvanized Steel Trailer Wheels
  • Yes, 13 inch galvanized steel wheels do have weight limits. For example, the Dexstar Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel, part # AM20234, that you referenced has a weight limit of 1660 lbs at 65 psi. Other rims will have other weight limits based on their design. What I am trying to say is that there is not an industry standard on 13 inch steel wheels as far as weight capacities go. There are some that have higher weight capacities and some with lower capacities. I will say that a majority of...
