Review of HWT Tires and Wheels AM22327


Today, we're going to review part number AM22327, this is the HWT aluminum 14 x 5-1/2 inch modular design trailer wheel with the 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern. This is a durable corrosion resistant aluminum construction. They do use the EEC coating, which is an Extreme Environment Coating on the wheel, front and the back of the wheel. It has the attractive modular style, and by modular, it has the round holes in the design. This is a high quality wheel, meets the Department of Transportation specifications. The nice thing about this, you should not be able to see in the video here, that it does have some nice shine to it.

The whole face and lip of the wheel, they do machine polish it and then that allows them to clear coat it on the front and the back of the wheel. Few specs on this. The rim dimension is going to be 14 inches in diameter and 5-1/2 inches wide, and when you go to measure that, you want to make sure that you're measuring inside to inside on the diameter and inside to inside on the width, because you're measuring where the tire beads would seat on the wheel. If we measure through the diameter first and again you'll measure not edge to edge, you measure inside to inside right where the beads will seat. If we put a ruler on that, we go straight across, you can see it's going to be right at 14 inches for the diameter and on the width again, inside to inside. If we put the ruler on that, it'll be 5-1/2 inches. Now, the bolt pattern on this is a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern, and the way you'd measure a bolt pattern on a wheel that has an odd number of lugs, in this case 5, you just pick one of the holes and then you'll measure to the hole right across from it, either one.

What you want to do is, on an odd number of lugs, you want to . When you start to measure the starting hole, you use the center of the hole and then the hole you go to, it's the outer edge, so measure start from the center of the starting hole to the outer edge of the hole you go to, so we're going to do is this one to this one. If we go center to the outer hole, you can see it's right at 4-1/2 inches, so 5 lug 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern. Now, the pilot hole diameter, which is the large hole here on the center of the wheel, goes over the hub on your trailer. On this wheel, it's going to measure 3.19 inches. Now, this wheel does have a weight capacity of 1900 pounds.

That should do it for the review on part number AM22327, this is the HWT aluminum 14 x 5-1/2 inch modular design trailer wheel with the 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern. .
