What is the Capacity of a 15x6 Inch Trailer Wheel with 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern


I recently purchased a u-dump 6x10 trailer I. Understand it has 15x6to [email protected] bolt pattern. What is the weight capacity of this rim size and can I use something like a jeep aluminium. Or chrome rim with the same weight capacity?

There are different capacities depending on the wheel. For 15x6 wheels with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern we have the following capacities:
# AM20522 and # AM20524 are rated for 2050 pounds at 75 psi # AM20504 is rated for 1820 pounds at 75 psi # AM22627, # AM20551, and # AM20537 are rated for 2150 pounds at 65 psi

You would not use passenger vehicle wheels on a trailer. They are not rated for that application and often the offset and/or bolt pattern is not right for a trailer.
