Review of HWT Tires and Wheels AM22658HWT

Today we're going to review part number AM22658HWT. This is the Americana HWT 16" by 6 1/2", Aluminum Series S5 Split-Spoke Wheel. Has a 6 on 5 1/2" bolt pattern and it is silver in color. This is made of a durable, corrosion resistant aluminum construction. Has a nice, machine finish and over the machine finish they actually inaudible 00:00:28 the silver paint in the spokes right here. Over the whole thing they put a nice, clear coating finish to protect it.

It is a unique split-spoke design which is a very nice-looking wheel. It does use a ICF technology which means improved clamp force and this will keep your wheel securely in place on your trailer. Basically it creates a bullet-proof joint between the wheel and the hub when properly installed and it means there's no need to retorque after initial installation. This high quality wheel will meet the Department of Transportation specifications. The dimension on this wheel, 16" in diameter, 6 1/2" wide. Basically on that measurement ,when you measure a wheel for the diameter you won't really measure edge to edge, you'll just measure bead seat to bead seat.

In other words, when a tire is mounted on this wheel, the tire beads would seat right here, so all your measurements would be from the bead seat. In this case, if this is a 16" diameter wheel, you would go from where the bead seat is right to where it is over here so you can see it's a 16" diameter. On the width, it's a 6 1/2" wide. You don't want to measure edge to edge. That would measure too wide.

The actual measurement is inside the bead seat to the bead seat where the tire would mount. In this one, if we put it on there you'll see it is 6 1/2" wide. So 16" diameter by 6 1/2" wide. The bolt pattern, you can see, is six lugs and the measurement is a 5 1/2" bolt pattern. Basically, on a wheel that is an even number of lugs, like in this case 6, all you would need to do is choose one of the holes and measure from the center of that hole directly across to the hole right across from it, center to center. On this one, if we do that measurement, center to center, you can see we get 5 1/2".

That would be 6 lug, 5 1/2" bolt pattern. The wheel stud size uses a 1/2" by 20". The pilot diameter, which is this large hole in the center, that's the pilot hole that goes on the hub on your trailer. The measurement on that would be right at 4 1/4" for the pilot hole diameter. The weight capacity on this wheel is 3,580 pounds. You can see the whole wheel has a nice finish to it. That should do it for the review on part number AM22658HWT. That's the Americana HWT 16" by 6 1/2" Aluminum Series S5 Split-Spoke Wheel. .
