Choosing Replacement Tires and Wheels for Older Trailer


I need 2 tire and rims, 6 on 5 1/2 with a center bore of 3 1/2. This is a very old axel and do not know the name of it . I will also need lugs and nuts. Can you help me.

We do have a large selection trailer tires and wheels available. In order to pick out the correct replacement tires for your trailer, I recommend checking for the size that is currently mounted. This will be listed on the tire's sidewall and I have attached an article that further explains trailer tire sizing that you might find helpful.

The closest wheels we have available with a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern to the 3-1/2 inch pilot hole diameter you mentioned is a conventional wheel like the Dexstar # AM20514. This 15 inch steel wheel has a pilot diameter of 3.65 inches and a weight capacity of 2,600 pounds. I recommend using a digital caliper like # PTW80157 to verify this dimension on your existing wheels.

I have attached a link that will take you to our available tire and wheel combos that feature a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern that you can look through. If you can give me the tire size you are needing, I will be happy to make a more specific recommendation for your trailer.
