Expert Answers about HWT

  • What is the Offset of a Trailer Wheel
  • Trailer or automotive wheels can have a positive or negative offset. The offset refers to the distance between the mounting surface of the wheel that touches the hub and the center line of the wheel, as shown in the diagram I have edited for you. A positive offset will move the tire closer to the trailer, while a negative offset will push the tire further away. Most of the trailer wheels we offer, including the Americana Aluminum Mod wheel you referenced, part # AM22327, have a zero...

  • Weight Comparison Between Aluminum And Steel 15 Inch Trailer Wheels
  • I pulled 3 different wheels from our warehouse and weighed them on our scale for you. The Aluminum HWT Mod Trailer Wheel, part # AM22646 weighs 15.8 lbs. This has a pilot hole that measures 4.25 inches. I pulled a couple steel wheels as well. The Taskmaster Steel Modular Trailer Wheel, part # TTW660655SM1 weighs 16.2 lbs. This also has a pilot hole that measures 4.25 inches. The Dexstar Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel, part # AM20532 weighs 17.15 lbs. This wheel has a pilot hole that...

  • Replacement 5 Spoke Aluminum Trailer Wheel for Aluma Trailer
  • We have an aluminum 5 spoke 14 inch trailer wheel that looks pretty close to the wheel in the picture you sent us, but it's not an exact match. For that you would want the part # AM20305 for just the wheel or the part # AM32151 for a wheel and tire mounted with a 205/75R14 tire, or part # AM32195 if you need a 215/75R14 tire.

  • Can You Run 110 psi Tires on Wheels with an 80 psi Rating
  • I spoke with one of the engineers at HWT and he told me that the psi rating for an HWT wheel and tire assembly is only limited by the valve stem and tire. If your current wheels or new wheels have a psi rating under 110 psi, it is okay to use tires with a 110 psi rating as long as you are using a metal valve stem that can handle 110 psi. We offer the Americana Metal Valve Stem, # AM20906. It is 1-1/4 inches long and it will fit a .625 inch (5/8 inch) rim hole diameter. You will want...

  • Replacement Wheel To Match Maximum Weight Capacity of ST225/75R15 Load Range E Tires on Trailer
  • I would recommend to check the sidewall of your ST225/75R15 Load Range E tires to verify what the maximum load capacity is and at what maximum psi. Most of the load range E tires in that size are a 2,830 lbs at 80 psi. The HWT Aluminum Star Mag Trailer Wheel, part # AM20516, that you have referenced is a 15 x 6 inch wheel with a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern. It has a maximum load capacity of 2,830 lbs at 80 psi. The center hole, or pilot hole diameter is 4.25 inches. This wheel should...

  • Recommended Rim for a 245/75 R16 Light Truck Tire
  • We have wheels that work for you but the Dexstar # AM20741 isn't wide enough for your tires. A 245/75 R16 size tire needs at least a 6-1/2 inch wide rim. We carry a few 16 inch wheels that are that wide, such as # AM22657. You may be better off going with a 235/80 R16, like # AC16R6WS, which is basically the same diameter as the 245/75 R16 size. You will also have the benefit of a trailer tire with a thicker sidewall instead of the LT truck tires. Some LT tires are rated for trailer...

  • Can Trailer Wheels With Positive Offsets Replace Trailer Wheels With Zero Offsets
  • Most trailer wheels do have a zero offset to evenly distribute the weight of the trailer on the wheels, however, that does not mean all trailer wheels must have a zero offset. As long as there is enough clearance between the inside of your tire and your trailer frame to accommodate for a negative offset, then you will have no problem using a wheel with a negative offset. The best way to determine if you will have room is to take the first number of your tire size, which is the width...

  • What Aluminum Wheels for a Forest River Cardinal 30TS 5th Wheel Can Handle 110 psi Pressure
  • We do offer the Americana # AM20906 bolt-in steel valve stem for 100-psi-and-above pressure applications. I suggest contacting Forest River with your trailer VIN number to confirm if the stock rims can safely be fitted with these valves. The Forest River website does not indicate specifications for their 2009 Cardinal 30TS 5th wheel, however the wheel/tire size on all of their current Cardinal Series RVs is 235/80R16E, and the stock hubs and rims are all 8-on-6-1/2 bolt pattern types.

  • Replacement Wheels That Do Not Rust For Ranger Boat Trailer
  • Many of the wheels used on trailers like your Ranger Trail trailer are constructed of steel and will eventually rust. We offer wheels that are made of steel as well but we also offer trailer wheels constructed of aluminum which is rustproof. I have attached a link to our product page of aluminum wheels we offer that may work for your trailer. I have also attached a link to our product page for galvanized steel wheels that are also excellent wheels that resist rust. If you prefer,...

  • Will Load Capacity Of Aluminum HWT 07 Series 6 Spoke Trailer Wheel Handle Trailer Weight of 4500 lbs
  • Yes, the Aluminum HWT 07 Series 6 Spoke Trailer Wheel - 15" x 6" - 6 on 5-1/2 # AM20458 has a weight capacity of 2,830 lbs. That is per wheel, so when you use it on a single axle, you would double that capacity giving you a max capacity for your trailer of 5660 lbs. You will be limited by the tires you choose as well as the capacity of the axle itself. For a matched tire rating to the wheel, I recommend the Westlake ST225/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range E # LHWL304. This...

  • Can I Install Trailer Wheels on my Truck to Match my Trailer
  • You could use the Americana Aluminum Split Spoke Trailer Wheels, # AM22659HWT, on your Silverado as long as the wheel will fit your tires and hubs and assuming everything remains under the weight capacities of your towing setup. This would include all components including tires, suspension, axle and hitch. This is a 16 inch wheel that is 6-1/2 inches wide with an 8 on 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern and a zero offset. It has a weight rating of 3,640 lbs at 80 psi, but you will still be limited...

  • How to Use a 14 Inch Aluminum Wheel with 215/75-14 Load Range D Trailer Tire
  • If you would like to use a 14" diameter aluminum trailer wheel with a 215/75-14 load range D tire then you would have to order the tire/wheel separate of one another as we do not currently off them in a combo. For the trailer wheel I recommend the Aluminum Hi-Spec Series S5 Trailer Wheel part # TTWALS514545 but I have attached a list of all the options for you and it really just boils down to preference. Then for a tire, I recommend the Provider Radial Trailer Tire part # TTWTRTM2157514D...

  • Recommended Wheel Size for LT245/75R16 Tires on Trailer
  • A 245/75R16 sized tire will fit 16 inch wheels that have at least a 6-1/2 inch width. For your tires, I recommend looking at the HWT Aluminum Hi-Spec Series 03 # AM22657 for a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern or # AM22697 for a 8 on 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern. With this in mind, I recommend thinking about switching to a 235/80R16 tire like the Westlake # LHAW251. This tire will essentially have the same overall diameter as your current set but is designed specifically for trailers. Unlike...

  • Valve Stem and Pilot Hole Size for 12 x 4 Inch, 5 on 4-1/2 Trailer Wheels
  • For any of the recommended wheels you can use valve stem # AM20903. The pilot hole on all of the wheels is 3.19 inches in diameter which is a common size. I have no doubt that the wheels will fit your hubs especially since you mentioned the spare's pilot hole is slightly larger than the hub where the wheel mounts.

  • Trailer Wheel Recommendation for Hub Centric Wheel w 4 on 4 in Bolt Pattern and 2.43 Pilot Diameter
  • If the wheels of your trailer get secured with bolts instead of lug nuts then you have a hub-centric setup. If instead there are lug nuts then it is lug centric. If you have a hub centric setup the pilot diameter of the wheels much match the hub's diameter exactly so that the wheel will be centered properly when installed. The closest wheel we offer to what you would need is the # AM30000 which has a pilot diameter of 2.5 inches since yours has a 2.43 inch diameter. This wheel comes...

  • Lug Nut Torque for Aluminum HWT Mod 15 Inch Trailer Wheel # AM22646
  • I have attached a chart that gives the torque specs for trailer lugs based on stud size, wheel size, and wheel material. For your Aluminum HWT Mod 15 Inch Trailer Wheel, # AM22646, and 1/2 inch stud size, the proper torque is 90 to 100 ft lbs. Please keep in mind that lug nuts should be re-torqued after 10 miles, 25 miles, 50 miles and then monthly after that.

  • What is Torque Rating for Lug Nuts Used on Americana Aluminum Hi-Spec Wheel 13 x 5 # AM20281
  • The Aluminum Hi-Spec Series 6 Trailer Wheel 13 x 5, part # TTWAL0613545S, uses a 1/2 inch x 20 lug nut size, like the Americana Trailer Wheel Lug Nut - Stainless Steel, part # AM90054. This lug nut will have a torque rating of 75 to 85 ft. lbs.

  • Availability of Chrome or Stainless Steel Lug Nuts
  • We carry a large selection of lug nut that will meet your preferences that you listed. Depending on the lug stud size, we carry both chrome and stainless, like # AM90070 1/2in-20 stainless lug nuts or # AM90049 1/2in-20 chrome plated lugs nuts. I have a attached a link to the product page for all the lug nuts we offer.

  • Available Trailer Wheels in Size 16 x 7 Without Offset
  • The specific wheel design of the HWT Hi-Spec Series 03 Mod Trailer Wheel # AM22657 is not available without offset. If your interest in increasing trailer tire size is to avoid blowouts then it may be possible to stay with the same tire/wheel size but move to a higher load range tire. A 16 x 7-inch wheel can accept trailer tires of sizes ST235/80-16 and ST235/85-16. For example, we have tires such as Taskmaster # TTWPRG235R16 which is size ST235/85-16 and that carries a weight capacity...

  • Lightweight Trailer Wheel Recommendation that is 12 inches in Diameter

  • 13x4.5 Wheel Compatibility Compared To 13x5 Inch Wheels On Trailer
  • I don't know what "calls for" means but using a 13x4.5 wheel instead of a 13x5 inch wheel will give you 1/4 inch more clearance on either side regarding just the wheel portion, but they will both fit the same sizes of tire. We have 175/80-13 tires that fit both wheel sizes as well as 185/80-13 tires that fit both wheel sizes. Most of our 13x5 wheels are the aluminum wheels like # TTWALS51354B where the 13x4.5 wheels offer all the options.

  • High Load Range Tire and Valve Stem Recommendation for a Americana Hi-Spec Trailer Wheel # AM22652
  • A ST225/75R15 trailer tire will fit the Americana Aluminum Hi-Spec Series 6 Trailer Wheel # AM20455. The highest load range tire we offer in that size is the part # AM10303 which has a weight capacity of 2,830 lbs at 80 psi. For a set of valve stems that are rated for psi that high that would fit the rims you would want the # AM20904.

  • Valve Stem Recommendation for the Aluminum HWT Series S5 Trailer Wheel # TTWALS514545B
  • If you take the Aluminum HWT Series S5 Trailer Wheel # TTWALS514545B and the Taskmaster ST215/75R14 Radial Trailer Tire part # TTWTRTM2157514D to a place that can mount tires they will have valve stems there that they can install in the rims. Or, you can bring with you the part # AM20903 and they will use these for the install. We don't currently mount tires on to wheels here.

  • Does the Taskmaster TTWALS514545B Wheel Fit a 2015 Keystone Bullet Premier 22RB Trailer?
  • Most likely your wheels have a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern, I would recommend measuring to be sure, if so then yes, the Taskmaster Wheel you were looking at # TTWALS514545B will work for your 2015 Keystone Bullet Premier 22RB Trailer. We offer this wheel in a tire and wheel combo also # TTWA14RTM45AS5B. I have linked a Help Article that will help you to verify the bolt pattern of your current wheels.

  • Are Longer Wheel Studs Required When Switching from Steel to Aluminum Trailer Wheels
  • It is not usually necessary to change wheel studs when switching from stamped steel trailer wheels to machined aluminum wheels like the HWT # TTWALS514545B but I went to our warehouse to measure the thickness of the material at this wheel's hub, in the center where the hub's 1/2-20 studs will pass through. The total thickness of the wheel material at this center point is 1/2-inch but since the stud holes are tapered to accept a 60-degree coned lug nut like # AM90054 the actual thickness...

  • 15-Inch Aluminum Trailer Wheel with 5-on-4-1/2 Bolt Pattern for ST205/75-15 Trailer Tire

Both wheel widths will fit an ST205/75-15 trailer tire. This tire size can actually be mounted on a 15-inch wheel with widths of 5, 5-1/2, 6 or 6-1/2-inches. In a 5-inch width we offer HWT 07 Series Wheel # AM20456. In a 6-inch width wheel we offer HWT Hi-Spec Series 04 Star Mag Trailer Wheel part # AM20518. We also offer 15 x 6-inch Mod...

All of which are confirmed to fit your wheels. The 3.19 is the diameter of the pilot hole on the wheel itself were it fits over the hub for future reference.

  • Calculating Available Back Spacing of Trailer Wheels with Negative and Positive Offsets
  • The Americana Star Mag Trailer Wheel, # AM22691, has a positive offset of 5 mm. This means the mounting surface of the wheel is set 5 mm to the outside of the wheel from the zero offset mark or moves the tire closer to the center of the trailer. This wheel has 3-1/2 inches of back spacing at the zero offset mark which translates to 88.9 mm. Because it has a 5 mm positive offset you will add 5 to 88.9 which is 93.5 or 3.68 inches.

  • Lug Nut Recommendation for a Americana Aluminum HWT Series S5 Trailer Wheel
  • Your 6k Dexter axles will have hubs on them that accept a 1/2 inch lug like # CE11051. For the Americana Aluminum HWT Series S5 Trailer Wheel, # AM22658HWTB, I recommend Americana Trailer Wheel Lug Nut, # AM90049. A standard nut would be too shallow for the wheel and you would not be able to get it torqued down correctly. The studs in the hub should be plenty long enough for the wheel.
