Alummium Wheel 16x7 Inch Compatibility with Metal Valve Stem


Do you sell a 16inch x 7inch trailer aluminum wheel with 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern and a 4.25inch pilot diameter do you sell that I can install metal stem value?

All of our 16x7 inch Aluminum wheels that have the 6 on 5-/12 bolt pattern and 4.25 pilot hole are from HWT. I went to our warehouse and measured the following for their valve stem hole diameter:

Aluminum HWT Hi-Spec Series 03 Mod Trailer Wheel w/-8mm Offset # AM22657
Aluminum Hi-Spec Series 04 Star Mag Wheel w/ +5 mm Offset TTWAL04167655 (discontinued)
Aluminum Hi-Spec Series 06 Trailer Wheel TTWAL0667655B (discontinued)

Each of them have a recess at the valve stem hole that is 0.67 inches in diameter and that is too small for the metal washer on the Americana Metal, Bolt-In Valve Stem - 1-1/4" Long - Over 100 psi # AM20906. That metal washer is .75 inches and the nut is .54 inches. You could use another washer, but it would be difficult to have a tool fit to tighten the nut. Instead, I recommend the Americana High Pressure Rubber Snap-In Valve Stem - 1-1/2" Long - Up to 80 psi # AM20904.
