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...

  • 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 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.

  • 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 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...

  • What Size Rim will Fit a 245/75 R16 Light Truck Tire
  • We have wheels that work for you but the Dexstar # AM20741 isn't going be 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 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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. I...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Replacement Wheels That Do Not Rust For Ranger Boat Trailer

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,...

  • 12 Inch Aluminum Wheels for 5.30-12 Tires on a Boat Trailer
  • We have some 12 inch aluminum wheels that will fit your 5.30-12 tires. We have split spoke wheel with black accents # AM22319HWTB. This is my favorite and what I would go with because it is a beautiful wheel. We also have the same wheel without the black accents, # AM22319HWT, and star mag wheel # AM20163. All of these wheels have the 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern and more than enough capacity for the tires you have. The aluminum construction will also resist corrosion well. I have linked...

  • The Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System with Hubs - 5 on 4-1/2 - Off-Road Tires - 1,200 lbs # A12WS545 is compatible with the Aluminum HWT Series S5 Split Spoke Trailer Wheel - 12" x 4" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 - Black # AM22319HWTB. With these wheels you most likely want valve stems # AM20903. For tires, I recommend the Kenda Karrier S-Trail ST145/R12 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range D # AM10130. You may also be interested in the Trailer Wheel Center Cap, Stainless Steel, 3.19"...

  • Replacement Wheels for a 2003 Coleman Utah Pop Up Trailer
  • Replacing the rims with larger ones will not necessarily decrease sway. If you're looking to reduce sway you may interested in the Pro Series Friction Sway Control Kit # 83660. For brackets you'll need either # RP26005 if you have 1-1/4 inch ball mount or # RP26003 if you have a 2 inch ball mount. You currently have 13 inch rims. The reason your measuring is off is probably because you're measuring the overall diameter. A wheel is actually measured from where the bead of the tire...

  • Replacement Wheels for 2013 Jayco 267 Camper
  • If the existing rims are 15x6 and have a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern, a 3.19 inch pilot diameter and fit 1/2 inch wheel studs, the HWT aluminum rim you mentioned, part # TTWAL06156545B would be a suitable replacement. You can determine your wheel bolt pattern by taking a look at the FAQ article I linked you to.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Recommended Lug Nuts and Cap for HWT Aluminum Wheel TTWALS51354B
  • The HWT Aluminum Hi-Spec Series S5 Trailer Wheel # TTWALS51354B referenced in your questions will use lug nuts like the CE Smith # CE11051. These are designed for 1/2 inch wheel studs and feature a machined steel construction to resist rust and corrosion. We do have some trailer wheel caps available like the Excalibur # 319EZ that may work with the Bearing Buddies on your hub. This cap is compatible with the same 3.19 inch pilot hole diameter that is on the HWT Aluminum Wheel. In order...

  • Lug Nut Torque for the AM22651 Wheel
  • The proper lug nut torque for a 1/2 inch wheel stud is indeed 75-85 foot lbs. It is important to re-torque the lug nuts after 10 miles, 25 miles, 50 miles and then monthly after that. I have confirmed this with HWT Wheels.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • The Aluminum Hi-Spec Series 06 Trailer Wheel, # TTWAL06865HDS, that you mentioned, is a heavy duty wheel which will handle up to 200 psi so you would have no problem mounting a load range G tire. At this time the only load range G tire that we offer is the Provider ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire, # TTWPRG235R16, which fits a 16 inch x 6 inch rim.
