Expert Answers about Lionshead

  • Can I Use Passenger Car Rims On A Travel Trailer?
  • Trailer wheel/rims like # LHSJ301B are different than passenger rims and are tested for different purposes. Trailer wheel manufacturers are more concerned with vertical load limit and offset over everything else. I don't recommend using trailer wheels for vehicles as that is not safe, however you can use vehicle rims on a trailer if they fit properly. The issue you may run into is that vehicle wheel/rims normally have a wide range of offset depending on the wheel style, where most...

  • Does 17.5" Aluminum Lynx Trailer Wheel # 274-000006 Have PSI Rating
  • Aluminum Lynx Trailer Wheel # 274-000006 does not have a listed psi rating. It will be based on the valve stem rating used with the appropriately sized tire for the wheel. Technically the wheel is lug-centric unless the outer diameter of the center of the hub is 4.9 inches. Any hub bore smaller than that and the hub would have to use lug nuts instead of wheel bolts. The black in the listing indicates that it has black trim. The whole wheel isn't black. There is an all silver version...

  • Will the 17-1/2" Aluminum Lynx Trailer Wheel Work with 1/2" Studs
  • Since the Aluminum Lynx Trailer Wheel # 274-000006 was made for 9/16" studs you wouldn't have any problem fitting and using it, safely, with the 1/2" studs on your hubs. I went and spoke with one of our guys who has been in the tire and wheel industry for a long time and he confirmed this.

  • Replacement Trailer Wheels to Fit 215/85-16 Size Tires
  • First of all your tire size, 215/85-16 sounds like it's a passenger vehicle tire and not a trailer tire. Trailer tire sizes begin with "ST" for special trailer. I recommend using ST tires because they have a stiffer sidewall to handle the vertical load of a trailer. If your tires are trailer tires then you're good to go. But if they aren't I would get some trailer tires. The exception is that some LT tires can be used on trailers. Your 7.50-16's that you had were likely LT tires like...

  • 3 plug in cap
  • Snap-In Plug for Lionshead Trailer Wheel Center Caps # LHSI60C measures 2.17 inches in overall diameter and from the outside of one tab to the outside of the opposite tab is 1.92 inches. I have included a picture showing this. This cap was designed for Lionshead trailer wheel center caps # LHCS102, # LHCS108, and # LHCS109. It looks like all the caps we have are this same 60C size.

  • Recommended Aluminum Wheels With Center Cap and Lug Nuts for Small Travel Trailer
  • For an aluminum wheel option I recommend the Lionshead Castle Rock ST205/75R14 Radial Tire w/ 14" Jaguar Aluminum Wheel - 5 on 4-1/2 - LR C - Gray # LHACKSJ211G along with the lug nut # LHLR103 and center cap # LHCS102-SI60C. We do not have any 14 inch wheels that come with the center cap or lug nuts included. This combo will come mounted and ready to install. The Westlake combinations are nitrogen filled to help with proper inflation and come with a superior warranty.

  • Which Bolt Pattern is More Common for 3,500 Lb Axles, 5 on 4-1/2 or 5 on 5
  • I do have both options for you but there would be no way for me to tell if you have the 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern or the 5 on 5" bolt pattern without measuring (see article). However, the 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern is much more common than the 5 on 5" bolt pattern and is likely what you have on your trailer now. I have attached a link with a list of 15" diameter wheels with both a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt patterns and 5 on 5" bolt patterns for you.

  • Recommended Radial Tires For 15 Inch by 5 Inch Aluminum Wheels
  • All tires are equally effected by storage, road debris, etc., however bias ply tires have a stronger sidewall and radials have a slightly more flexible sidewall. If you will be doing a lot of highway driving, I'd go with the radial tires because they hold up better to the heat, but the bias tires are better for farm or off-road applications. Due to the fact you are looking at nice Aluminum Jaguar Trailer Wheel - 15" x 5" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 - Gunmetal Gray # LHSJ301G, I recommend you...

  • Lug Nuts and Center Cap for Lynx Trailer Wheels
  • The Lynx Trailer Wheel # LHSL513 is a 16" x 6" wheel with an 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern and 4.9" pilot diameter. For lug nuts you can use the Lionshead Trailer Wheel Lug Nut # LHLR110, which fit the 9/16" wheel bolts of the wheel, and for center caps, you would use the Lionshead Trailer Wheel Center Cap w/ Snap-In Plug # LHCS109-SI60C. I have added links to video reviews of each of these products for you to take a look at.

  • Bolt Pattern for Wheels on 2015 Forest River Trailer
  • Getting an accurate bolt pattern measurement can be tricky when you have an odd number of bolts. You will need to measure directly across from one bolt to the blank spot where there would be a bolt if you had 6 bolts. I've attached a diagram which should help explain exactly where to measure. Or, you could purchase the Redline Bolt Pattern Template, # BC-TEMP. I've also attached a short article that explains how to measure bolt patterns which may be helpful. If you confirm that your...

  • Can You Change 16 Inch Rims To 15 Inch Rims To Change Tire Size
  • Based on your question, it sounds like you want to change from 16 inch rims to 15 inch rims. This should not be a problem but you will need to match up your bolt pattern to get a correct match. For example, if your bolt pattern is 5 on 4-1/2 then something like the Aluminum Jaguar Trailer Rim-15 inches, Item # LHSJ301G, would be possible. I have attached a link to our 15 inch tires that includes tire/wheel combos for you to check out. If you send me more information like your...

  • What Does Right Hand Thread Mean for Trailer Lug Nuts
  • Right hand thread means that they tighten turning clockwise like what you have. Older vehicles and trailers used to put left hand threaded lugs on one side of the trailer and right hand on the other. The thinking back then was that they all had to tighten a certain direction relative to the rotation of the wheels otherwise they would loosen on their own from inertia while traveling down the road. In recent years we've learned that's not true so basically everything now is right hand thread.

  • Compatibility of # LHCS102-SI60C Center Cap and # AM20906 Valve Stem with Dexstar Mini Mod Wheel
  • The Dexstar # AM20789 Mini-Mod wheel and the Americana # AM20906 valve stem are indeed compatible with each other, but the center cap you referenced, part # LHCS102-SI60C is compatible with a 3.19 inch wheel pilot hole diameter, and wouldn't work with the 4.9 inch pilot diameter of the wheel you referenced. Instead, I'd recommend the Excalibur # 490EZ-SS center cap, which has 4.9 inch outside diameter and would work perfectly with the wheel you've chosen. The center cap also features...

  • Recommended Aluminum Wheels for 5 on 4-1/2 Inch Bolt Pattern on 2017 Interstate Victory Car Hauler
  • On your 2017 Interstate Victory 20x 8.5 foot car hauler, the Aluminum Bobcat Trailer Wheel - 15" x 6" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 - Black # LHSO320B are a fit to replace your 15x5 steel wheels as long as you have the extra 1/2 inch of clearance on the inside.

  • Recommended Tire PSI with Castle Rock Tires on 2018 Forest River Cruise Lite 230 BHXL
  • I don't have any information on your 8 ply tires. Our 6 ply rated Castle Rock ST205/75R14 Radial Trailer Tire w/ 14" PVD Chrome Wheel - 5 on 4-1/2 - LR C # 274-000001 have a max psi of 50 and are inflated to 50. I can confirm that your tires that state 65 psi are underinflated at 50 psi and will need to be filled to your max psi when filled cold for proper function. Many tire shops will have the nitrogen available to fill your tires to their required max psi when filled cold. Driving...

  • Trailer Wheels with 6 on 5-1/2 Bolt Pattern and At least 4-1/2 Pilot Hole to Fit 225/75-15 Tires
  • Wow, you've got a lot going on in that question. First of all we'll get the math out of the way: Tell your dad I'm sorry but 4.29 minus 4.25 equals 0.04. So 4.29 is the larger number by 4 hundredths of an inch. On another hand, he's correct that a 225/75-15 tire can fit a 7 inch wide rim. It actually fits on a 6 and 6-1/2 inch as well and generally with trailers skinnier is better so the load is more directly under the weight. But all three widths fit which means the Lionshead, part...

  • Lionshead Castle Rock Tire Warranty

Although the roadside assistance would be in effect, the warranty does not cover individuals slashing the tires. I recommend contacting your dealer if you believe this was done at their location to see if they will cover the replacement due to their negligence if it was indeed done even accidentally...

  • Larger Tires for Jayco 23B Travel Trailer to Increase Ground Clearance

The larger tire will increase your ground clearance by about 3/4-inch.

The maximum weight capacity for this wheel will be limited to the lowest maximum capacity of the tire or the wheel. Because you are considering a higher psi rated tire like the Westlake ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire, Item # LHWL410, I recommend adding higher rated valve stems like the Americana Bolt-In Valve Stem, Item # AM20906,...
