We have a number of 17-1/2" wheels with an 8 on 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern for you to choose from, with the only minor differences being that the pilot diameter of the larger wheels wouldn't be 4.9", it would be smidgen smaller at either 4.75" or 4.76". The nuts are also a touch different; instead of 16/9" they would be 5/8".

There are a couple options I recommend taking a look at, starting with the Taskmaster Solid Center Wheel # TA45ZR. This wheel has a corrosion-resistant 3-step powder coat finish, includes the metal valve stem, and has a wheel capacity of 6,005 lbs. I also suggest checking out the Taskmaster Modular Wheel # TA35ZR. It also includes the metal valve stem and has a 3-coat finish, along with a wheel capacity of 5,956 lbs.

I've added links to video reviews of both of these wheels for you to take a look at, as well as a link to our page with each of our 17-1/2", 8 on 6-1/2 wheels.
