Review of Dexstar Tires and Wheels AM20208


Today we're going to review part number AM20208. This is the Dexstar 13 by 4 and 1/2-inch vintage steel wheel with the 1/2-inch positive offset, and the 4 on 9.44 bolt pattern, and the silver finish. This wheel's a sturdy steel construction. It has nice excellent corrosion resistance because it uses a silver powder coat finish over an e-coat primer on the front and the back of the wheel. This is the star pattern, creates the vintage look. This vintage wheel is used on a lot of the older trailers. This wheel does have a positive offset, which ensures that the wheel's positioned closer to the trailer frame.

This is a high quality wheel, which means it meets the Department of Transportation specifications, and this part is made in the USA. A few specs on this wheel. It is a 13-inch diameter, by 4 and 1/2 inches wide. When you measure the diameter and the width, you're actually measuring inside to inside because you're measuring where the tire would seat on this wheel. The tire beads would seat right here, so when you measure the width you're going to measure inside to inside, and when you measure the diameter it's inside to inside. To give you an idea of the diameter on this wheel, if we measure inside to inside, you can see right at 13 inches.

The width, same way, we'll measure inside to inside, and you can see right at 4 and 1/2 inches. Now the bolt pattern, this is a older, vintage bolt pattern. It's measured, a bolt pattern would be measured, on a wheel that has an even number of lug holes, like this one's got four, you'll just pick one lug hole. Measure from the center of that lug hole to the center of the hole directly opposite from it. If you measure the bolt pattern on this wheel, center is going to be right at the 9.44, so this is a 4-lug on 9.44 bolt pattern. This does a use a wheel lug size of 1/2 inch by 20. It does have a load capacity of 1,315 pounds.

Just to mention, this has a 1/2-inch positive offset. Basically, what that means is, most trailer wheels, the mounting surface, right here, that mounts onto the hub of the trailer is right at the center line, which would be 0 offset. Now, if this mounting surface, back here, would move towards the front of the wheel, which would pull the wheel closer to the trailer frame, that's the positive offset. This one has a 1/2-inch, so this mounting surface is from the 0 it moves a 1/2 inch this way, which will pull this wheel closer to the trailer frame. That should do it for the review of part number AM20208. This is the Dexstar 13 by 4 and 1/2-inch vintage steel wheel with the 1/2-inch positive offset, and the 4 on 9.44 bolt pattern, and the silver finish.
