Review of HWT Tires and Wheels TTWAL0414545


Today we're going to review part number TTWAL0414545. This is the HWT 14" by 5-1/2" aluminum Hi-Spec series 04 Star Mag trailer wheel with the 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern. Now this is an aluminum wheel which is very durable, lightweight, and rustproof. It is a Hi-Spec series 04 design which is a five-spoke star pattern as you can see. Very attractive. What's nice about it is the face of the spoke and the outer lip of the wheel is all a machine-polished finish.

It gives you a nice shine to the wheel. The inset or the accent is in silver. Then once that's all done, they clear coat the whole wheel front and back to protect it. This wheel does use the ICF technology, which is improved clamp force. This will help keep your wheel securely in place. Basically, once you install this there's no need to retorque it after that initial installation.

The wheel is a high quality wheel, meets Department of Transportation specifications. A few specs on this wheel. The diameter is 14" by 5-1/2". If you go to measure your wheel, when you measure a wheel you're going to measure where the tire beads would set. Basically, when you mount a tire on here, the beads of the tire seat here so the width is you're going to measure inside to inside or bead seat to bead seat.

When the tire mounts it's inside to inside. The diameter, if you run a ruler on it, will be inside to inside, not edge to edge. As you can see, if you do that, it's 14" diameter. The width again, inside to inside, you're going to see it's right at 5-1/2, so 14 by 5-1/2". Now on the bolt pattern is a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern. If you go to measure a bolt pattern, on a wheel that's an odd number of lugs, in this case five, what you do is pick any lug hole.

Then you go from that lug hole directly across to the hole right across from it, either this one or this one. You can choose either one. The key is when you measure it it's measuring from the starting hole center to the hole you go to, the outer edge. Basically, if we're going to measure the bolt pattern from this hole to this hole, we'll put a ruler on it and we'll do center of the starting hole to outer edge of the hole you go to. It's 4-1/2", so 5 on 4-1/2". This does use a wheel lug size of 1/2" by 20. The pilot hole diameter, which is this large hole here in the center of the wheel, this goes over the hub on your trailer, if we put a ruler on this the measurement of that is going to be 3.19" for the pilot hole diameter. The weight capacity on this wheel is 1,900 pounds. That should do it for the review on part number TTWAL0414545. This is the HWT 14" by 5-1/2" aluminum Hi-Spec series 04 Star Mag trailer wheel with the 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern. .
