Expert Answers about Americana

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Driving America Trailer Wheel Center Cap For 15 Inch Wheel With 6 Lugs
  • I spoke with my contact at Americana and they told me that the Americana Trailer Wheel Center Cap, part # AM90091, will fit all 15 inch wheels regardless of the lug bolts, as long as the pilot hole is 3.19 inches diameter.

  • Can I Determine the psi Rating of a Wheel
  • Since wheels will be able to withstand the psi rating of any of the tires that are meant to fit it you will need to look at the valve stem as that is the deciding factor. If your valve stem has the rubber all the way up to the threads, like part # AM20903, then it will be rated around 65 psi. If there is some reinforcement between the rubber and the threads, like part # AM20904 or # AM20907, then your valve stem can be rated between 80 and 100 psi. The only valve stems that are rated...

  • 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.

We have the Americana Baby Moon Trailer Wheel Center Cap - Chrome-Plated Steel # AM90086 which are 9-1/4 inches inside edge to inside edge. These are a confirmed fit for the 13-15 inch conventional wheels.

  • 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...

  • 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....

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Torque Specification for 12 Inch Wheel with 4 Lug Nuts on Boat Trailer
  • I have attached a chart for you to take a look at that includes the lug nut torque specifications. If your wheel uses 1/2 inch lug nuts or wheel bolts like the 12 Inch Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel # AM20124 referenced in your question, you will torque them to 75-85 foot pounds. If you have different size lug nuts, then you will just follow the specifications included in the chart for that size on a 12 inch wheel.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Are the Americana Metal Bolt-In Valve Stem Made of Stainless Steel
  • The steel valve stems # AM20906 are made of a durable steel with a maximum tire pressure rating of over 100 psi. However, these stems are not manufactured in stainless steel. Unfortunately, we do not carry a valve stem that is made from stainless steel.

  • Replacement Steel Rim For Hustler Super Z Lawn Mower
  • We may have the wheel you need for your Hustler Super Z Mower, but the wheels we offer are not designed specifically for your mower. I have attached a link to our 12 inch wheels. You will need to know what the wheel bolt pattern is and whether an offset is required for your mower. You want to make sure you select a wheel that will also fit the pilot hole on your mower. You can use the filters on the product page to find the wheel you need. I have also attached a helpful article that...

  • Will the Americana Trailer Wheel Center Cap # AM90098 Fit a Boat Trailer With Oil Bath Hubs
  • The Americana Trailer Wheel Center Cap, part # AM90098, has the removable top plug that can be removed for easy access to an EZ lube trailer spindle. The EZ lube axle has a zerk fitting on the end of the spindle for filling the hub with grease. This center cap will fit 15 inch wheels with a 5- lug bolt pattern and a pilot hole diameter of 3.19 inches. Most axles that use an oil bath hub are larger axles and with oil bath hubs you will usually want to see the center cap that will show...

  • 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...

  • Center Cap Recommendation for the Taskmaster Wheel # TTW460545SM1
  • The pilot diameter of the Taskmaster Wheel # TTW460545SM1 that you referenced is 3.27 inches. The center cap part # AM90175 is designed for 3.19 inch pilot diameters. I might be a tiny bit small but it should work just fine.

  • Recommended Center Cap for 15 Inch Wheels on 2008 Starcraft Trailer
  • The Americana Trailer Wheel Center Cap - Chrome # AM90091 is designed to fit 15 inch diameter wheels like # AM20455 that have a 5-hole bolt pattern and 3.19 inch pilot diameter. If this matches the wheels you have on your 2008 Starcraft Trailer, then this will work great. I have attached a video demonstration on this product so you can see exactly how it looks. I recommend measuring the pilot diameter of the wheels on your trailer to ensure that this will fit. I have also attached...

  • Trailer Tire Valve Stem Pressure Capacity for Changing to Load Range D Tires
  • The limiting factor in a wheel's pressure capacity is usually the valve stem. Some are rated only for 65-psi, # AM20903, while others such as # AM20904 are rated for 80-psi. Part # AM20907 handles up to 100-psi and part # AM20906 is good for tires needing over 100-psi pressure. Note different valve stems fit different size holes in the wheels. You will have no trouble moving up to a Load Range D tire on your 15 x 5-inch wheels so long as you also have the correct valve stem installed...

  • Replacement Lug Nuts for R-Pod Trailer
  • The Forest River R-pod Travel Trailers have the 1/2 inch bolts and the lugs use a 21mm socket according to the online forums I could find. I recommend replacing them with a more standard size. The Americana Trailer Wheel Lug Nut - 13/16" Diameter - Stainless Steel - 1/2" - 20 # AM90054 work very well and will not rust. This is the proper threading and a more common size for wrenches. We do have a wrench that has the 21mm size as well as the other common 1/2 inch lug sizes. I recommend...

  • Would These Wheels Work on a Zero Radius Turn Mower?
  • The wheel you mentioned has a 900 lb weight rating, so the capacity will not be your problem. The wheel size is the same, but I am not entirely sure that the bolt pattern will be close enough to match up. A 4 bolt on 100mm bolt pattern would equate to 4 on 3.94 inches, which would be far enough off that it would not fit. The # AM20021 is for 1/2 inch wheel studs and has a 2.5 inch pilot diameter. I would recommend confirming the bolt pattern of your hubs, I have linked you to an...

  • 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...

  • Metal Valve Stem and Dually Valve Extenders
  • We offer one metal valve stem, part # AM20906, rated for PSI pressures over 100-lbs. This is a 1-1/4-inch-long bolt-on valve stem that requires a hole diameter of either 0.453-inches or 0.625-inches depending on which of the two included rubber grommets you use (use only one of them). Valve extenders are available in straight lengths AND with a 90-degree bend. 15-inch straight # WM9019-4 13-inch straight # WM9020-5 7-inch straight # WM9014-4 9-1/2-inch 90-degree # WM9021-5

  • 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...
