Determining the Bolt Pattern

The first number in the bolt pattern is the number of bolt holes. The second number denotes the diameter, in inches, of the circle on which the bolt holes sit.

Bolt Pattern - Odd

To determine the bolt-circle diameter on wheels with an odd number of bolt holes, measure from the center of any bolt hole to the point halfway between the two bolt holes directly across from the first. (Example: "5 on 4-1/2" means 5 bolt holes with 4-1/2" measured to a point halfway between the opposite bolt holes.)

Bolt Pattern - Even

On wheels with an even number of bolt holes, measure from the center of one bolt hole to the center of the hole directly across from it. (Example: "8 on 6-1/2" means 8 bolt holes with 6-1/2" from the center of one hole to the center of another on the opposite side.)

Bolt Pattern - Side

Measuring the distance from the center of one bolt hole on the wheel to the center of a bolt hole right next to it can also help to determine the bolt pattern.

  • If D = 2-5/8", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-1/2"
  • If D = 2-3/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-3/4"
  • If D = 3", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5"
  • If D = 3-1/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5-1/2"

I was afraid these were wrong, because these were old style wheels i was looking for. if you have the OLD style with deep square drums these will fit perfectly.

  • Do Dually Wheels Require a Gasket to Prevent Rubbing Together
    I spoke with our resident tire/wheel guru and he said that some older trucks with duallys did use gaskets, but if your current setup is a newer one and does not have currently have gaskets then you will not need one.

  • Actual Wheel Offset of the Dexstar Dual Wheel part # AM20783
    The spec given to us for the offset of the Dexstar Dual Wheel part # AM20783 is 5-1/2 inches of positive offset. However, when we had our wheel and tire guru measure it he found the offset to be 5 inches of positive offset. So to answer your question, the offset is 5.

  • Will Dexstar Dual Wheel with Offset Work as Spare for 2017 Jayco Redhawk
    It is possible the Dexstar Dual Wheel with Offset # AM20783 you looked at will fit but we don't have specific wheel information to confirm it. You would need to compare the size, bolt pattern, offset, and pilot diameter to see if it matches. This is a 16 x 6 rim with an 8 on 6.5 bolt pattern. It has a 5.5" offset and a 4.75" pilot hole diameter. It is also worth noting that this is designed/rated for trailers not for a motorized vehicle. The same is true for all of the wheels we carry.

  • Can Dexstar Dual Wheel with Offset # AM20783 Fit on Dexter 12k Capacity
    Yes, the Dexstar Dual Wheel with Offset # AM20783 that you referenced will fit on a Dexter 12k trailer axle like you have.

  • Offset and Width of the Trailer Wheel part # AM20783
    The offset for the trailer wheel part # AM20783 is 5-1/2 inches and the "width" is 6 inches not including the mounting lip. When you add that in the overall width is 6-1/2 inches.

  • What is Trailer Wheel Pilot Diameter
    Pilot diameter on a wheel like our dually trailer wheel part # AM20783 that you referenced is basically the diameter of the center hole of the wheel. This wheel has a pilot diameter of 4.75 inches. I attached a picture that shows this dimension as well. You should note that this is a trailer wheel and it is not designed for a truck.

  • What is the Weight of the 16" Dexstar Dual Wheel with Offset
    The 16" Dexstar Dual Wheel with Offset # AM20783 has a shipping weight of 41 lbs so you're looking at about 37 lbs once the packaging is removed.

  • Options For Replacing Dextar 017-175 Offset Wheel
    We do have a potential option for you. Unfortunately the only 16.5" x 6.75" rim we carry has no offset. The closest thing to your 17-157 rim is going to be the Dexstar Dual Wheel with Offset # AM20783. This will have the same bolt pattern, offset and pilot hole diameter as your current wheel. The only difference is that this is a 16" rim instead of a 16.5.

  • Will 4.75 Pilot Hole Fit with 4.75 Hub for the Dexstar Dual Wheel with Offset # AM20783
    Generally if the hub has studs on it then it is stud piloted but if you secure the wheel to the hub using bolts then it is hub piloted. Since you are using dual wheels it changes things a little bit. The Dexstar Dual Wheel with Offset # AM20783 that you referenced is designed to fit on a dual wheel setup that is hub piloted. This means that the studs come through the back side of the hub and extend through both wheels and you use a 5/8" flange nut, like part # 95188, to secure it. Hub...

  • Dually Wheel for a Texas Bragg Trailer with 7.50-16 Tires
    The 7.50-16 is a light truck tire size sometimes used on trailers. It fits a 16x6 inch wheel. We have several wheels in this size with an 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern but since you have dually wheels you will want # AM20783. I have included a link to a video review of this wheel for you.

  • Valve Stem For Dexstar Dual Wheel AM20783
    I believe you are talking about the hole size for the valve stem for the Dexstar Dual Wheel with Offset - 16 x 6 Rim - 8 on 6.5 # AM20783, and the size is 0.625 inches. For a valve stem use the following: - Americana Metal, Bolt-In Valve Stem # AM20906

  • Recommended 16" Dually Trailer Wheels with 8-Bolt Pattern
    The Dexstar Dual Wheel part # AM20783 for 4.75" pilot or part # AM20790 for 4.88" pilot are the only two available dually trailer wheel options we offer with 16" diameter and 8-bolt pattern. These wheels are both constructed of steel. I am not aware of any aluminum dual trailer wheels so steel will be your only option.

  • 16" Dual Wheel For Inner or Outer Mounting
    We were not familiar with the term "coin in coin out" but are guessing that you mean the wheel can be used as an outer or inner wheel. If so we have the Dexstar # AM20783 16" Dual Wheel. Steen wheel with 8 on 6.5 bolt pattern and 4.75" pilot hole, powder coated white on a hub piloted design using Dexter Axle # 95188 flange wheel nuts. Select # AM20783 for white finish with 4.88" pilot. If you need a different wheel spec' just email me back with the details.

  • Replacement Trailer Wheels with 4.75 Pilot Hole Diameter
    We carry rims with a 4.77 pilot hole, like # LHHA420, and a 4.75 inch pilot hole, like # AM20783, however they're both for dual wheel applications and have an offset. Using a wheel with a 4.75 or 4.77 pilot will be just fine since there's such a small difference. It's likely the measured hole is the same just estimated on the 4.75.

  • Recommended 16" Dually Wheels to Fit 235/85R16 Tires
    From looking at your previous order (thank you for being an etrailer.com customer!) it looks like you purchased the Lionshead Steel Dual Wheel - 16" x 6" - 8 on 6-1/2 - 4.77" Pilot - Silver # LHHA420, which would be the correct sized wheel to fit a 235/85/r16 tire. If you also need the tires, the Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range F # AM10501 would fit on those wheels and provide you with a high quality tire that has a Load Range F, which have a capacity of 3960-lbs...

  • Dually Wheels for 235/86-16 Tires
    We currently have a dually wheel available by itself but no tire and wheel combos for duallies. Any tire shop should be able to mount the tires on the wheels for a nominal fee. For a 16 inch dually wheel we have the 16x6 inch with 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern with 5-1/2 inch offset # AM20783 or # AM20790.

  • Solution for Needing Replacing Dually Wheel and Tire in Size 9.5R16.5
    For a dually wheel and tire setup that's going to have a similar outer diameter we have the Provider 215/75R17.5 Radial Tire w/ 17-1/2" White Dual Wheel # TA56MR which has a 30.2 inch outer diameter. Your current tire size has an outer diameter of 30.6 inches. These also have a capacity of 4,540 lbs at 123 psi. This has the standard dually 10 bolt pattern of 10 on 8-3/4 inches. It looks like you most likely have that bolt pattern too but I can only see a few lugs in your picture.

  • Difference Between Dexstar Dual Wheel Part # AM20783 and Lionshead Steel Dual Wheel Part # LHHA420
    The Dexstar Dual Wheel part # AM20783 and the Lionshead Steel Dual Wheel part # LHHA420 are two very similar wheels with a few key differences. They are both 16" diameter x 6" wide wheels with a 8 on 6-1/2" lug pattern. However, the Lionshead wheel has a 3,500 lb weight capacity whereas the Dexstar wheel only has a 3,100 lb weight capacity. Another noticeable difference is that the Dexstar wheel is made in the U.S.A. and the Lionshead wheel is not. In order to install either wheel you will...

  • Torque for Lug Nuts of Taskmaster Steel Dual Trailer Wheel # AM20783
    I attached a chart that has all of the lug nut torque figures for trailer wheels for you to check out. Basically it depends on the style of lug nuts and if they have rotating flange washers. Most likely it's right at 200 ft lbs but if you do not have rotating flanges you'd need between 275 and 325 ft lbs.

    I do have a great option for you, however the Lionshead Steel Dual Wheel - 16" x 6" - 8 on 6-1/2 - 4.77" Pilot - Silver # LHHA420 that you referenced is not made in the USA. They also do not have offset like my next suggestions.
