Helpful Expert Reply:

The width of a trailer wheel is measured from the inner edge of a bead to the inner edge of the other bead. You will need to remove the tire from the wheel to get the most accurate measurement. Or, you can consider that a 205/75R14 trailer tire will fit a 5", 5-1/2", 6", or 6-1/2" rim and it is best to go with the smallest rim width available for your size of tire to keep the side walls as straight as possible. You will also need to verify your wheel's bolt pattern, it will probably be a 5 on 4-1/2 but double check this.

For a white powder coated wheel. I suggest the Dexstar Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel - 14" x 5-1/2" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 - White Powder Coat, # AM20352. Or, the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel - 14" x 5-1/2" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 - White Powder Coat, # AM20365.
