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’m very happy with this extremely heavy duty wheel,
Exactly what I needed for my heavy duty trailer with a load range g tires.


Nice wheels. Hole four valve stem was rough and we had to file down to get Val sent to seal


Very prompt and accessible staff if orders need change.
Great service, excellent products.


I have never shopped at a place on line that even comes close to the excellent level of customer service that etrailer provides. Simply amazing to me. I wish all vendors were this good.


High quality trailer wheels at an affordable price. Very pleased!




should include valve stem......


I purchased this for a second spare (RV) for our trip to Alaska. Good quality and fast shipping


Excellent rim good quality!


Etrailer sets the example for positive shopping online! Friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable folks taking the orders. My items were packed to protect them during shipping, and shipping was unbelievably fast. I will definitely do business with etrailer in the future and will recommend them to my friends.

Thank you etrailer and their great employees who helped me with my order!

I purchased these rims because they're made in the USA. They're well made and are heavier due to increased load capacity. Rims were true and had very little run out, unlike the chinese made rims that came originally on my trailer. I would purchase these rims again.


Excellent service and good knowledge.


Hard to find the heavyweight wheels sometimes. Etrailer has them, at a decent price and these guys have great customer service. Quick shipping without any hassles. Will be shopping here again in the near future and will recommend whenever possible. Thanks guys!


Exactly what I expected - shipping, fit, quality, etc.... all of it.

A year later, all is perfect with the rims.

Exact replacement for my horse trailer. Had to buy a spare because BISON furnished a spare but it was 6 lug and not 8 lug. By the time I needed a spare it was out of warranty. Not a good time to find out it does not fit with horses in trailer and on side of the road. Word of advice to anyone! Something else to check before leaving the lot with a new trailer. Fast ship! Thanks etrailer!

Tom L - 06/06/2018


The rims where they are welded could have a better finish where the o.d of the rim meets, and the welding on the back side still had pieces of mig wire sticking out to get your hand stick with the wire. I had four new rims already that I could not use because of the positive offset. They were made in china and had a finshed better finish, and I hate to say that. I really expected better quality come from a Dexstar Usa product. Maybe alike of quality control.


Purchased these for spares for our horse trailer. They are heavy! Good strong rims. We are putting these on a 38 ft horse trailer with LQ. Each axel is rated at 7k so these rims were perfect for that.

I will be using these wheels on my horse trailer as well. My current wheels are gray but Im having trouble finding that color. Does the silver wheel that you ordered have a matte finish as opposed to shiny? I prefer the matte finish. Thanks for your help.

Good people !!!


Its the wrong one need to send back


I have bought other rims before that where so bad that couldn't even balance. These rims took very little if any weight to balance. I use in transport business putting @114k miles a year.


I ordered the Mini Mod Trailer Rim and Pop Up Roof Vents...the customer service was excellent and it was delivered very quickly. We will definitely remember your company in the future!
Sincerely, Ron Mc


Great prices. Shipping is really quick. Will definitely do business with etrailer again.

Your product is still great! I will definitely use you again.

Received wheels and brake assemblies in timely manner. Have not installed either but have been very satisfied with service so far

  • Can Wheels from a 2004 Ford F-350 be Used on a Trailer
    No, you shouldn't use vehicle wheels on a trailer. Among other things, the offset (how far or close to the trailer the wheel is) is different on vehicles than trailers. Often times the bolt hole mounting patterns are not exactly right and the pilot (center) holes are usually not the correct sizes. Trailer tires and wheels are designed for more vertical load than passenger vehicle tires and wheels and for all of these reasons it is not recommended to use vehicle wheels for a trailer. I...

    While searching for a replacement for your Dexstar #17-293, I found a great option that is the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20794. It has a zero offset with 3,960 pound capacity at 110 psi. It has an 8 lug on 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern and is compatible with 1/2-20 or 9/16-18 wheel studs. Sorry to hear about your bent rim.

  • Replacement Wheel for a 2015 Jayco Greyhawk Motorhome with a 2015 Ford E-450 Super Duty Chassis
    If your 2015 Jayco Greyhawk Motorhome with a 2015 Ford E-450 Super Duty chassis utilizes the common 8 on 6-1/2" bolt pattern, then I recommend the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel, part # AM20794. I've linked to a video review of this wheel for you to look at.

  • Replacement Rim For A 8120 Featherlight Stock Trailer
    The Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20794 will work for your 8120 featherlight stock trailer if your existing rims are 16 inch by 6 inch and have a bolt pattern of 8 on 6-1/2. I will attach a link below showing how to measure your bolt pattern. The diameter of the wheel will be stamped on the sidewall of the trailer. The last two numbers will be the diameter of the rim. The picture below the last two numbers are 15 which would indicate that the rim would be 15 inches. The rim...

  • Can a Trailer Use Wheels that Have Different Weight Capacities
    As long as the wheels are all rated for the weight of your trailer you would have no problem using the # AM20794 and # AM20760. Them having different weight capacities isn't a problem in it of itself, but if the combined weight capacities of all the wheels wasn't enough for the weight of your trailer that would be where the problem is. Both the wheels would have enough capacity to be used on a 7k axle so you would be fine.

  • 16 inch Trailer Wheel with 6 Lug Bolt Pattern that Can Handle 110 PSI
    As long as you install a valve stem like the part # AM20906 in the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20794 it would do just fine handling 110 psi. Typically it is the valve stem that is the limiting factor for tire pressure on a wheel and the one I recommended would handle 110 psi without a problem.

    It looks like your Dexstar 17-293 wheel is 16x6 and has an 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern. We have several wheels that will match this wheel, but I recommend going with the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel - 16" x 6" Rim - 8 on 6-1/2 - White Powder Coat # AM20789 .

  • Recommended 16 Wheels with Steel Powder Coat for 2007 Mobile Suites 36TK3
    The Dexstar Steel Powder Coated # AM20760 are a good choice, but you also may want to consider looking at the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel - 16" x 6" Rim - 8 on 6-1/2 - Silver Powder Coat # AM20794 because they've got a 3900-lbs per wheel capacity compared to the 3750-lbs capacity of the # AM20760. This is a small difference, but I generally think the extra strength is worth it in this case when you're talking about 4 wheels and a trailer with a GVWR of roughly 14000-lbs. Either...

  • Why aren't Trailer Wheels Rated for Max Air Pressure
    Typically wheels like the Dexstar Mod Wheel part # AM20794 are limited by the valve stem in terms of max air pressure which is why the wheel doesn't have it's own psi limit. For a higher rated valve stem we have the Americana Valve Stem part # AM20906 which is rated for over 100 psi and fits this wheel.

  • What Size Rim Diameter and Pilot Diameter is Required to Install on Hub # KHR13858E
    Since the # KHR13858E is a 13 inch rotor you would need to use 16 inch or larger trailer wheels with 8 on 6-1/2 inch bolt patterns like the # AM20794 which has a pilot diameter of 4.9 inches. I went out to our warehouse to measure this hub and found that the pilot diameter of a wheel would need to be 4-3/4 inches to fit on this hub.

  • Recommended 16 x 6 Wheel for Wood Chipper
    Since you believe your wheel has a zero offset (mounting pad of wheel is equidistant along width of rim) I wouldn't recommend going with the # AM20797 wheel with the positive offset as it will move the wheel 1/2 inch closer to the trailer frame. Both the # MX59FR Maxion Vesper and Dexstar # AM20794 have a zero offset, both have an 8 on 6-1/2 inch pilot bolt pattern and the same pilot diameter. If I had to choose between the two, I'd go with the # MX59FR, because of its higher 4460 lb...

  • Wheel Offset And Backspacing Of The Dexstar Mini-Mod 16" Wheels
    Backspacing and offset are terms used to look at the same thing in a different way. Backspacing is described as the distance from the center of the hub to the inside edge of the wheel at the bead seat whereas offset is the distance from the center of the wheel to its mounting face. On a wheel with a zero offset, the backspacing will be slightly larger than half of the width of the wheel because the wheel width is measured from bead seat to bead seat (see photo). It is not the overall width...
