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"

Wheel has a little nick on the outside of the wheel. Hoping once the tire is mounted it will not show.

Review from a similar Hi-Spec Series 04 in Trailer Tires and Wheels


etrailer always have great trailer rims and excellent videos showcasing those rims. These rims are some of the best looking I've found to go on my Grey Wolf and make it look very sharp. I like these because aluminum is easy to maintain, and the machined brushed aluminum has a very nice glimmer without being too glossy like chrome. And the price at around the $xxx mark is a great deal. These were packaged exceptionally well and arrived flaswless.
I've never been disappointed with my purchases from eTrailer over the years and I'm sure I never will, because their customer service is flat out second to NONE! Thanks again for a great deal.

Review from a similar Hi-Spec Series 04 in Trailer Tires and Wheels


We found a cracked wheel on the 5th wheel camper and needed a new aluminum wheel. We called Etrailer and spoke with Dylan who walked us through all of the dimensions we needed to collect from the old wheel to order a new wheel and provided us with the wheels available from the etrailer inventory.
GREAT SERVICE that was fast and friendly and what a good match.
Thank You.


Comments
It held up to a 2,500 miles of abuse holding up the 5th wheel. We broke a spring and that locked these two tires together. The new wheel is fine but we now have 4 new springs, two new equalizers and a wet bolt kit.

Review from a similar Hi-Spec Series 04 in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Fast shipping and great communication, however two of my three rims arrived damaged, one of the rims had multiple areas of road rash around the bead area of the rim and the other damaged rim had a dent on the edge of the bead seal area of the wheel. I do not believe the rims were damaged during shipping they were packaged fairly securely and the shipping boxes were not damaged at all, I believe the damage occurred prior to packaging. In all fairness I did not contact customer service about the issues. I am using the rim with the dent on the bead area as a spare tire and the other rim with road rash damage can barely be seen after tire mounting. Due to receiving with damage that appears not to have occurred during shipping is my reasoning for three stars instead of five.

Review from a similar Hi-Spec Series 04 in Trailer Tires and Wheels


The wheels are an exact match for my 2007 MasterCraft Phoenix trailer. I purchased the wheels as spares so that they match the primary trailer wheels. The quality is spot on and they mounted up well.

Love them. I changed the tires by hand. Tires slipped right on new wheels and beads seated easily. I’ll buy them again if I ever upgrade any of my other trailers

Review from a similar Hi-Spec Series 04 in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I like these new rims / wheels. They look sleek, clean, simple and mean business. Nice shine. I chose them because they looked solid, with wide 5 spoke design. Trailer tires blow out and the rim slams the pavement. Hoping this wont happen. That is why I also bought spanking new Goodyear Endurance tires, made in the USA, higher load rating. Cheap China tires blew out. I also bought chrome lug nuts and center hub cap to complete the look. No point in a half arsed upgrade. Center hub cap can access bearing buddies.
These rims are made in China and I hope they meet my expectations.

I received 2 of these wheels. One looked to be new. One looks to be used with no packaging and damage to it. The way the wheels were packaged for shipping was poor at best ! After my conversation with customer service I don’t believe that I’ll ever do business with this company again!

Review from a similar Hi-Spec Series 04 in Trailer Tires and Wheels


The people I dealt with were terrific A+++
I had to return the axel not the correct one one.
and I had to return one extra spindle one or two times.
it did not matter to me as I was not in a big hurry.

So it all worked out... and I understand that ordering an extra spindle was unique the rims were fantastic.

have not used it much but that one is on me..

Will go back to you guys again... and suggest you guys to others.

thank you

Review from a similar Hi-Spec Series 04 in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Rims look fantastic. Customer service was even better. One of the parts I needed was backordered. They called right away and were flexible enough to allow an exchange and arranged quick shipping. I was a little apprehensive about shipping aluminum rims but the packaging was outstanding and everything arrived in good shape. Would definitely recommend etrailer.

See what our Experts say about this HWT Trailer Tires and Wheels



  • Lightweight Trailer Wheel Recommendation that is 12 inches in Diameter
    The Star Mag Trailer Wheel # AM20163 that you referenced would be your best option. It weighs 9 lbs which is the lightest wheel we offer. This wheel has a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern.

  • Aluminum Trailer Wheel Option for a 5.30-12 Trailer Tire
    A 5.30-12 trailer tire fits on a 4 inch wide wheel, so yes, your tires will fit on the HWT Aluminum Hi-Spec Series 04 Star Mag Trailer Wheel, # AM20163. When choosing new trailer wheels, you will also want to consider the wheel bolt pattern and the pilot hole diameter. This wheel has a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern and the pilot hole diameter is 3.19 inches. The pilot hole diameter is important because you will want to choose a wheel that will fit around the hub bore. If the pilot hole...

  • Is Pilot Hole On HWT Aluminum Trailer Wheel An Issue Fitting Trailer Hub If It Is Larger Diameter
    A larger pilot hole on a wheel like part # AM20163 will not pose a problem if the wheel is held in place with the lug bolts. The only time the pilot hole would be an issue is if it is smaller than the trailer hub diameter or if you use bolts to attach the wheel and the wheel fits more snug around the hub. This is defined as hub-piloted. All of the 12 inch wheels with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern we offer have the same sized pilot hole of 3.19 inches diameter.

  • Fitment & Compatibility of HWT Aluminum Hi Spec Series 04 Star Mag Wheel w/4.80-12 Load Range B Tire
    Great news! The 4.80-12 sized tire fits a 4 inch rim, so your tire will fit the HWT Aluminum wheel # AM20163 you were looking at. Upgrading your wheel will not increase your Load Range B capacity of 785lbs at 60 psi, but they will be a nice upgraded look. I have linked the HWT Aluminum Wheel to this page for your convenience.

  • What is Lug Nut Torque with Aluminum Hi-Spec Series 04 Star Mag Trailer Wheel # AM20163
    When mounting the Aluminum Hi-Spec Series 04 Star Mag Trailer Wheel # AM20163 you'd need to use between 75 and 85 ft lbs of torque on the lug nuts.

  • Comparing The Aluminum Hi-Spec With Steel Spoke Galvanized Finish Wheels
    The Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel - 12" x 4" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 - Galvanized Finish # AM20134 has a zero offset. The Aluminum Hi-Spec Series 04 Star Mag Trailer Wheel - 12" x 4" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 # AM20163 also has the zero offset, so there is no difference between the two wheels in how far they sit from the axle hub face. The biggest difference between these wheels other than the aesthetic appeal is the load capacity. The Aluminum Hi-spec has a 270 lb higher load capacity. Both of these wheels...

  • 12 inch Trailer Wheel with 5 Bolt Pattern that Has 1,520 lb Weight Capacity
    Yes, we have the aluminum trailer wheel part # AM20163 which is a 12 inch diameter trailer wheel with a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern that has a weight capacity of 1,520 lbs like you are in need of. None of the steel options we carry have the capacity you'd need. I attached a review video for this wheel for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended 12 Trailer Wheel W/ 1520lb Load Rating For ST145R12 Load Range E Tires
    To mount your ST145R12 load range E tires to your trailer I recommend the Aluminum Hi-Spec Series 04 Star Mag Trailer Wheel - 12" x 4" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 # AM20163 if your trailer has the 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern as it has the 1520lb load rating to match the load rating of your tires. If your trailer has the 4 on 4" bolt pattern the highest rated we offered is the Dexstar Steel Modular Trailer Wheel - 12" x 4" Rim - 4 on 4 - White Powder Coat # AM20122 which has a 1250lb load rating.

  • Will Taskmaster Tire # TTWSF53012C Fit On Hi-Spec Series 04 Trailer Wheel # AM20163
    The trailer tire part # TTWSF53012C that you referenced will fit perfectly fine on the trailer wheel part # AM20163 that you also referenced. These two sizes are perfectly compatible with each other and there aren't any options we offer that require specific contour fits either. I attached review videos for both of these for you to check out as well.

  • Do Aluminum and Steel Trailer Wheels have the Same Offset
    The offset of basically all trailer wheels is the same, zero inches. There wouldn't be an offset difference between an aluminum or a steel wheel in the size you mentioned. Since we don't have a aluminum wheel and tire combo in the size you want the best option is the aluminum wheel part # AM20163 that you referenced with the correct tire size you need 4.80-12 like # TTWSF48012C from Taskmaster. This tire has a higher speed rating of 81 mph too.

  • Can Taskmaster 4.80R12 Tire be Combined with 12" Aluminum Hi-Spec Series 04 Star Mag Wheel
    We did speak about the Taskmaster 4.80R12 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range C # TT48012C for your coffin trailer because of the higher speed limits that you travel. This has an 81 mph speed rating which is the fastest for this size. The only way to get a higher speed rating is to use a larger size tire. This will fit perfectly with the Aluminum Hi-Spec Series 04 Star Mag Trailer Wheel - 12" x 4" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 # AM20163, but since they are manufactured by 2 different companies we aren't...

  • Replacement Tire and Wheels For Size 6.00-12
    I do have some options for you. The closest tires and wheels that compare to the one pictured are our 145/80-12s. I recommend using either the Kenda Karrier S-Trail # AM31199DX, or the Kenda Karrier Black Mod # AM35354; both of these tires have a 1,220 lbs maximum load at 65 psi. I am recommending the tires with the wheels because even though your wheel might be functional, it looks like it is a little beat up around the edges. Keep in mind that you will want to verify that these tires...

  • Can 12 Tire and Wheels be Upgraded to Larger Size for Better Ground Clearance for Axle
    If your current 12" wheels use a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern then you should be able to upgrade to a 205/75R14 size tire provided that you have enough fender and frame clearance. I recommend using the Kenda Karrier ST205/75R14 Radial Tire # AM10235 with the Galvanized Wheel # AM20364 which has an overall diameter of 26.3" and a section width of 8.1". We recommend having at least 4" of clearance for your fender (to account for suspension flex) and at least 2" between the sidewall of the tire...

  • Aluminum 12" Wheel and Tire Recommendation for Highway Speeds of 75 mph
    If you really like the Aluminum Hi-Spec Series 04 Star Mag Trailer Wheel # AM20163 that comes with the Kenda # AM31206 then all you would need is the Taskmaster 5.30R12 Radial Trailer Tire # TT53012C and the valve stem # AM20907. The tire has a load range of C (1,050 lbs at 80 psi) and is rated for 81 mph so it would be perfect for cruising at 75 mph. Unfortunately we do not have any tires pre mounted on a 12" wheel that have a speed rating over 65 mph. After getting these parts you would...

The Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel - 12" x 4" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 - Chrome # AM20152 will be lighter at just 9 lbs and will be the lightest wheel we currently carry. For your tire, the Kenda K353 Bias Trailer Tire - 4.80-12 - Load Range B # AM10060 weighs just 9 lbs but will only allow speeds up to 65 mph. If you want to go 70 mph, then I recommend bumping up...

  • 12 Inch Aluminum Wheel Similar to Lionshead Lynx Wheel
    The Aluminum Lynx Trailer Wheel - 15" x 5" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 - Silver # LHSL301 is not available in that 12 inch size. For a similar wheel in that size I recommend the Aluminum HWT Series S5 Split Spoke Trailer Wheel # AM22319HWT. This is the closest option to that style we have available in 12 inch diameter but we also have that wheel with black accents # AM22319HWTB or the Series 04 Star Mag # AM20163.

This is my favorite and what I would go with because it is a beautiful wheel. We also have the same wheel without the black accents, # AM22319HWT, and star mag wheel # AM20163. All of these wheels have the 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern and more than enough capacity for the tires you have. The aluminum construction will also resist corrosion well. I have linked videos...

  • High-Speed 4.80R12 Tire Recommendation for Motorcycle Coffin Trailer
    The best option for your current setup is the Taskmaster 4.80R12 Radial Trailer Tire # TT48012C as you noted due to the 81 mph speed rating. With that being said, it is never good to run tires faster than their speed rating because then you run the risk of overheating and possible tire failure so I can't really recommend going faster than 81 mph with this tire. The Taskmaster is a great option that will hold up really well with your weight. Each tire has a weight rating of 990 lbs at 90...

    First I do recommend verifying exactly how much clearance you have. The Kenda 4.80-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12" Aluminum Wheel # AM30679 you are looking at is 20.7" tall while your Kenda 4.80/4.00-8 Bias Trailer Tire with 8" White Wheel # AM30020 is 16.1" tall.

  • Do Wheel and Tire Combos Come with Lug Nuts
    Lug nuts are not included with the trailer wheel and tire combos we offer like the # AM30679 that you referenced. You'd need lug nuts too like with # 319EZ. We have Taskmaster wheel and tires like the part # TA58RR which has the higher speed rating you are looking for but it's not on the same wheel as what you referenced. You'd have to get the wheel separately with part # AM20163 and the tire # TT48012C and have them mounted locally.

  • Can I Order a 12" Aluminum Wheel and Have It Mounted To a Tire Speed Rated For 81MPH?
    You will have to mount the wheel and tire yourself or have it done at a tire shop as the wheel and tire combos we have come from the manufacturer. We have no way of mounting the tires in our facility. I have created a list of all our 12" aluminum wheels and tires with the 81mph speed rating you are looking for.
