Review of HWT Tires and Wheels AM22323HWT

Today we're going to review part number AM22323HWT, this is the Americana 13 inch by 5 inch aluminum HWT series, S5 trailer wheel. It has the 5 on 4 1/2 inch bolt pattern and silver in color. This wheel is made of a durable corrosion resistant aluminum. You can see it has the nice split spoke design and the accents of the spokes, right in here are all silver painted. The face of the wheel and the outer edge is actually a machine finish to give a nice shine to it. Then the whole wheel they put a clear coating on it to protect it. This wheel does use the ICF technology, which is improved clamp force. This is designed to keep the wheel securely in place.

Basically it forms a bulletproof joint between the wheel and the hub when it's properly installed and there's no need to re-torque after initial installation. This is a high quality wheel that'll meet the Department of Transportation specifications. The rim dimension on this is a 13 inch diameter by 5 inch wide wheel. If you go to measure that, what you're measuring when you do the dimensions of a wheel, is you're measuring where the tire would seat, so the tire would actually mount right here on these bead seats. So when you measure the diameter of the wheel, you're measuring bead seat to bead seat, or inside to inside. So for the diameter if we do inside to inside you can see right at 13 inches diameter. On the width, the same way, you won't do the edge to edge; you'll do inside to inside, or bead seat to bead seat.

So on the width of this wheel is going to be right at 5 inches. So 13 inch diameter, 5 inches in width. The bolt pattern on this wheel is 5 on 4 1/2 inch bolt pattern. Basically if you measure that on a wheel that has an odd number of lugs, like in this case 5, what you'll be doing is pick any hole - like if you pick this hole - and you'll measure from this hole across to either one of these holes. But what you'll do is measure from the center of the starting hole to the furthest edge of outer edge of the hole that you're measuring to. So basically we're going to measure from this one to this one just to show you the measurement.

So again from the starting hole we go the center to the furthest edge. You can see it's right at 4 inches, so 5 lug, 4 inch bolt pattern. This wheel does use a wheel lug size of inch by 20. The pilot hole diameter, which is this large hole in the center of the wheel, goes over the hub on your trailer. Measure the diameter on that, that measurement's going to be 3.19 inches and the weight capacity on this wheel is 1740 lbs. That should do it for the review on part number AM22323HWT; this is Americana 13 inch by 5 inch aluminum HWT series, S5 trailer wheel, in the 5 on 4 inch bolt pattern. .
