Review of Americana Tires and Wheels AM22323HWTB

Today, we're going to review part number AM22323HWTB. This is the Americana 13 inch x 5 inch aluminum HWT series S5 trailer wheel with the 5 on 4/12 inch bolt pattern and the black highlights. This wheel is made of a durable corrosion resistance aluminum, has the nice split spoke design. As you can see right here, has black on the accent of the spokes and the face and the outer edge. It's a machine finish and then they completely clear coat the whole wheel to protect it. This wheel does use the improved clamp force or ICF technology. This will help keep your wheel securely in place.

Basically what it does, it allows a bulletproof joint between the wheel and the hub when it's properly installed and there is no need to torque it after initial installation. This high quality wheel does the meet the Department of Transportation specifications. Now, the rim dimension on this is a 13 inch diameter x 5 inch wide wheel, and basically if you go to measure the dimension of a wheel, what you're going to be measuring is where the tire would seat on the wheel. Basically, when you mount a tire, the tire would seat right on here, so when you measure the diameter, you're going to measure bead seat to bead seat or inside or inside. If we put a ruler on there, you can see right at 13 inches for the diameter, and on the width, it will be the same thing. You won't do edge to edge, you'll do inside to inside or bead seat or bead seat. If you put that on, you'll see it's right at 5 inches, so 13 inches in diameter and 5 inches in width. Now, the bolt pattern on this is a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern, and on a wheel that has a odd number of lugs like in this case 5, if we go to measure the bolt pattern, you just pick any wheel lug hole and take from that lug hole and go all the way across to a hole across from it, either one of these.

If we measure, you'll measure from the center of the starting hole to the very outer edge, the furthest edge of the hole across from it. In this case, if we're going to do this hole to this hole, we'll go from the center right to that outer edge and it's 4-1/2 inches, so 5 lug 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern. This does use a wheel lug size of a 1/2 inch x 20. Now, the pilot hole diameter which is this large hole in the center of the wheel goes over the hub on your trailer, and this wheel it's going to measure diameter of 3.19 inches, and then the wheel capacity weight capacity on this is 1740 pounds. That should do it for the review on part number AM22323HWTB, the Americana 13 inch x 5 inch aluminum HWT series S5 trailer wheel with the 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern. .
