Review of HWT Tires and Wheels AM22699

Today we're going to review AM22699. This is the Americana 16 inch by 7 inch Aluminum HWT Series 06 Trailer Wheel with the 8 on 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern. Now this wheel is made of a durable corrosion resistant aluminum. This is the HWT Series 06 design which is the spoke design as you can see here. It's very unique in and appealing. The design spokes the side of the spokes or the accents are in silver. The face of the spoke and the outer lip right here as a machine finish to it and then the whole wheel is clear coated to protect it. This is a high quality wheel that will meet the Department of Transportation's specifications. Now if you have noticed it does come with this metal valve stem, it's included and stalled in the wheel. The reason they do that is this wheel is classifies as a heavy duty wheel, so it does use tires on it that has a high weight capacity and those high weight, the tires that have the high weight capacity require a very high PSI, so you do have to have a metal stem to be able to meet those high PSI ratings and this valve stem does come with the wheel. The room dimension on this is a 16 inch in diameter by 7 inches in width and the way to measure that on the wheel, anytime you measure a wheel you're actually going to measure where the tire would sit on the wheel. When a tire is mounted on this wheel, the tire beads would sit right here, so when you measure the diameter you're measuring the bead seat to bead seat. Basically if we put a ruler on this, just to give you an idea, you can see the bead seat inner to bead seat inner would be 16 inches in diameter and then on the width you want to do the same thing, you'll measure inside to inside, you don't want to measure overall, you'll measure bead seat to bead seat. Again, if we put the ruler on it, you can see 7 inches is the width. So 16 inches diameter, 7 inches in width. Now the bolt pattern on this wheel is a 8 log on 6 1/2 inch bolt pattern and that is behind this cap.

I just want to take off the cap just to show you that bolt pattern. Once you unscrew that you can just pop the cap off and basically on this caps, what's nice, it has a little tab right here and there's a little insert right here. So what you'll do is when you put the cap on, you put that tab in that insert, push it down and then you'll be able to screw that screw right in and holds your cap into place. Now I'll show you the center here. You can see the 8 on 6 1/2 inch bolt pattern and basically the measure on a wheel that has a even number of log knots, you just take any whole, measure from the center of that whole directly across to the whole right across from it center to center. In this case if we go this whole to this whole, center to center, can see right at 6 1/2 inches. So 8 logs, 6 1/2 inch bolt pattern. Does use a wheel log size of a half inch by 20. The pilot hub diameter which is this large whole right here, this goes over the hub on your trailer, the diameter of that whole is going to be right at 4.9 inches and again, this is a heavy duty wheel. The weight capacity on this wheel is 3960 pounds. I'm going to show you just how to put that cap back on.

Again, you take that tab, stick it right in there and then just tighten that screw down. Once you have it tighten down, it would hold the cap into place and keep any other weather from getting to the logs. Just like that you have a very nice looking wheel. That should do it for the review on part number AM22699. The Americana 16 inch by 7 inch Aluminum HWT Series 06 Trailer Wheel with the 8 on 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern. .
