Review of Americana Tires and Wheels AM20163

Today we're going to review part number Am20163. This is the Americana 12-inch by 4-inch aluminum, series 04 Star Trailer Wheel. This has the 5 on 4-1/2-inch bolt pattern, and is silver in color. This wheel is made of a durable corrosion resistant aluminum. Has a nice attractive star spoke pattern here, the 5-spoke design. It is silver in between the spokes, and the face and the outer lip of this wheel is actually a machine finish.

Then they clear coat the whole wheel, to protect the finish of it. This is a high quality wheel, which will meet the Department of Transportation specifications. The room dimensions on this is 12 inches in diameter and 4 inches wide. When you go to measure a wheel, you're actually going to measure where the tire bead would seat on the wheel. So basically, when you mount a tire on here, the tire beads would seat, right here. When you measure the diameter, you'll measure inside to inside bead seat to bead seat, and on the width you'll measure inside to inside, bead seat to bead seat.

Just to give you an idea, the dimension on this is going to be inside to inside, right at 12 inches, and the width, again, will be right at 4 inches. 12-inch diameter; 4 inches in width. It does have a bolt pattern of a 5 on 4-1/2-inch bolt pattern. The best way to measure that bolt pattern is on a wheel that has an odd number of lugs. In this case, 5.

Just pick any wheel lug hole, and then what you'll measure is from the center of that starting lug hole, to the outer edge of the hole right across from it. Either one of those holes, you can go to, and just measure from the center of the beginning hole, to the outer edge of the second hole. In this case, we're going to go from this one to this one. Center to the outer edge is going to be right at 4-1/2 inches. 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern. It does use a wheel lug size of a half-inch by 20, and the held pilot diameter, which is this large hole in the center of the wheel, this goes over the hub on your trailer.

The diameter of this hole is going to be 3.19 inches. This does have a weight capacity of 1520 pounds. That should do it for the review on part number Am20163, the Americana 12-inch by 4-inch Aluminum Series 04 Star Trailer Wheel with the 5 on 4-1/2-inch bolt pattern. .
