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"

Great look for a 1970 trailer.




by:

I bought these wheels because my old steel wheels were starting to rust, and these aluminum wheels are styled kinda like the wheels on my truck. the finish looks nice. they are lighter than the steel wheels, and run truer (no wobble) than any of my steel trailer wheels. now I need to paint the hubs and put on new lugnuts to finish the look.


Comments
ive had these wheels for a year now. finish still looks great, and they dont lose air. very happy with my purchase.

These definitely add a touch of class. When we first got our travel trailer we purchased 4 wheels plus the center caps and lugs. After a couple years of travel, we decided to further upgrade. We had a welder create a high-mount spare tire carrier so we could put a cargo carrier in the bumper hitch and carry 2 generators in the summer. We just bought and mounted a fifth matching wheel for the spare tire so the we have a classy look even for someone behind us!




by:

The wheels are high quality and a great value for the price. The caps fit these wheels well and look good!




by:

They look great on my trailer! Very pleased with the finish and quality of the wheels!




by:

Wheels came quickly and look to be a well made product. Machining is first rate, polished nicely and clear coated. Only issue is they came with two stickers from the manufacturer on them and it's been very difficult to remove them with out marring the nicely finished coating. The wheels look really good on our airstream, and it's a nice upgrade. Over all other than the stickers a very good product.




by:

To be more accurate, I give the actual product 5 stars and the customer service 3 stars...

Ordered these wheels based on the great reviews and was happy to have them arrive 2 days later, especially since I was traveling without a spare in the mean time. The problem? They sent the wrong wheels. Talked to customer service and they said they would expedite shipping and to expect an email shortly with shipping confirmation. It never came. Called the next day and it turns out the first customer service person never put the 2nd order through... another day lost.

The new wheels finally arrived, though, and they worked out perfectly. Very nice quality and very reasonably priced. Would definitely order here again, but going to keep my fingers crossed that the order is shipped correctly first time out...




by:

Wheel and tire Package completely transformed the look and feel of the trailer. Couldn't have asked for better product and service. Thanks etrailer as always!




by:

These wheels came in quick so I mounted them up quick. They look really great on my 18’ open car hauler.




by:

Custom trailer with aluminum mod wheels




by:

Wheel performing flawlessly, have not needed to adjust air pressure in one year of use. Best price and service out there!




by:

The wheels have worked out great and look good too! Have close to 10k miles with them and keep a pretty good eye on them and they have outperformed the own wheels. Very satisfied.




by:

Beautiful rims at a fantastic price. So glad to be rid of the standard steel rims and rust. Combined with the tires I purchased and quick delivery, I'll never go anywhere else for my 5th wheel needs.


Comments
Very happy with this purchase
Big e - 12/16/2017

Bought these to dress up our 12k deck over trailer. The original rims were beginning to peel and rust on the edges. These aluminum wheels have been a good replacement. We use the trailer to haul some heavy equipment, such as tractors and skid loaders, and the wheels have held up great. I have no issues with them whatsoever.

A side note, It is a good practice as with any aluminum trailer wheels to keep up on the torque for the lug nuts. I re-torqued after the first few hundred miles, and just checked them recently, a year after purchase as I write this review.

My stock open acorn style lug nuts worked with these wheels, they do however sit inside the bores on the wheels, in such a situation, an impact socket will not fit the lugs due to the wall thickness, so a chrome socket must be used. No big deal. I do have plans to buy the longer chrome lug nuts, but have not gotten around to it as of yet.




by:

I ordered a pair of wheels along with associated items. Soon after ordering, I received a call from the folks at etrailer to say that the wheels were not in stock, but expected soon. Thereafter, I received email follow-ups, including one to indicate that the package was shipped.

These folks know how to treat customers! A great experience working with them!


Comments
You have no idea how amazingly good those new aluminum wheels look with our newly mirror-polished vintage Airstream! Enough said!!:

Arrived early. Recommend using etrailer for future orders.




by:

received rims opened to check, all ok. I was going to get tires at a local tire store and was confused with some of the information. after doing my research. so now I know that trailer tires are made different. I did get some tires ordered, not here yet.
I am building an off-road vehicle carrier. It has a rolling deck, with drive over fenders, able to carry different widths. the tires are inside of the trailer frame width of 8 '. the length is 18'




by:

Very courteous and knowledgeable person nel




by:

Wheels are still flawless. Shipped promptly and were fairly priced. Minor screw up with the lug nuts that was promptly rectified.




by:

Love them!
I use this trailer for my
business, when I show up in front of a clints home it helps to look a little more professional along with being neat and clean.
I would buy them again in a heartbeat!
Very nice wheels, great quality.




by:

Everyone I dealt with at etrailer we're great, excellent customer service skills. The product was delivered today. It came in perfect condition...all I need now is to find someone open to get a tire mounted on it.




by:

we are on vacation and lost one of our rims with tire,sheered off bolts on hub,we noticed it missing when we pulled off for gas..we made it to our destination, got on the phone and was able to order the exact rim,had it sent right to us at campgrounds.free shipping..what more can u ask for?????(thank goodness we had 3 tires on per side).. thank you so much for all the wonderful people who work to make etrailer so wonderful...




by:

Nice people, great service, quality products, and fast delivery




by:

Wheel was a perfect match to a factory original that hat gotten a pinhole leak on the backside. This rim was perfectly round and the tire balanced with only .75 oz.




by:

Great rim at a fair price

  • Backspacing of Trailer Wheel HWT Hi Spec part # AM22646
    The backspacing of the trailer wheel part # AM22646 that you referenced is 3-1/2 inches. This is calculated by taking the width of the wheel (6 inches) adding an additional inch for the lip on the wheel and then dividing by two. It's that easy to calculate because all trailer wheels like this one have an offset of zero.

  • Will HWT Aluminum Wheel # AM22646 Work with ST225/75R15 Size Trailer Tire
    Yes, the HWT Aluminum HWT Hi-Spec Series 03 Mod Trailer Wheel # AM22646 referenced in your question will work perfectly with your current ST225/75R15 size tires. This 15 inch wheel with a 6 inch width is a match for ST225/75R15 trailer tires. The sleek aluminum wheel features a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern which appears to be what you have and it has a 2,830 pound weight capacity. I have attached a short video review that you can check out as well.

  • Lug Nut Torque for Aluminum HWT Mod 15 Inch Trailer Wheel # AM22646
    I have attached a chart that gives the torque specs for trailer lugs based on stud size, wheel size, and wheel material. For your Aluminum HWT Mod 15 Inch Trailer Wheel, # AM22646, and 1/2 inch stud size, the proper torque is 90 to 100 ft lbs. Please keep in mind that lug nuts should be re-torqued after 10 miles, 25 miles, 50 miles and then monthly after that.

  • Will Aluminum HWT Trailer Wheel AM22646 Work On 5th Wheel Trailer Weighing 10000lbs?
    The HWT in the name of the Aluminum HWT Hi-Spec Series 03 Mod Trailer Wheel - 15" x 6" Rim - 6 on 5-1/2 # AM22646 you were looking at is the companies name as an abreveation. The full name is Hi-Spec Wheel and Tire. The # AM22646 has a load rating of 2830lbs per wheel, and using 4 wheels would give you a combined load rating of 11320lbs which more than exceeds the 10000lbs you mentioned your 5th wheel trailer weights. To make sure the # AM22646 fits your trailer I recommend measuring...

  • ST235/75 Tire Recommendation for Trailer with Single Axle
    We don't have the ability to mount tires here so if you went with the wheel part # AM22646 and the Karrier Tire part # AM10303 you'd have to mount them locally. But this tire is the best option around in this size. It has a high weight capacity, and a speed rating at 81 mph. I'd run the max pressure rating for this tire of 80 psi and you'll have the best capacity and tire wear towing a 5,000 lb trailer.

  • Are Aluminum Wheels Compatible with RV Trailers or Just Boat Trailers?
    Aluminum wheels like the HWT Hi-Spec Series 03 Mod Trailer Wheel - 15" x 6" Rim - 6 on 5-1/2 # AM22646 and the Sendel Series T02 Machined Trailer Wheel - 15" x 6" Rim - 6 on 5-1/2 # AM22654 are fit guided a couple of ways on our site. Aluminum wheels are great for boats because they resist corrosion, but they are also a great option for other trailers like your RV. If you check out the customer photos you will see them on different trailers and they are a great option for an RV. I've...

  • Will Aluminum Wheels Have Enough Weight Capacity For a 2007 Keystone Laredo 5th Wheel Trailer
    Yes, the Aluminum HWT Hi-Spec Series 03 Mod Trailer Wheel part # AM22646 is a great option for your 2007 Keystone Laredo 5th Wheel Trailer. In regards to weight capacity, these wheels offer up to 2,830 lbs which will be suitable for even the highest load range. I recommend the Karrier ST225/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire part # AM10303 but you will want to use the Americana High Pressure Rubber Valve Stem part # AM20904 to run them at full capacity.

  • Is There an Aluminum HWT Hi-Spec Series 03 Wheel 15 Inches and 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern
    It sounds like you're looking for the Aluminum HWT Hi-Spec Series 03 Mod Trailer Wheel - 15" x 6" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 # AM22627 instead of the # AM22646. These wheels do have a 2150-lbs per wheel capacity, like you mentioned. These wheels do not come with valve stems but you can add high pressure stems with the Americana High Pressure Rubber Snap-In Valve Stem - 1-1/2" Long - Up to 80 psi # AM20904 which is rated for up to 100psi. I've linked some review videos of these parts for you to check...

  • Recommendation Between Aluminum and Steel Trailer Wheels
    The main difference between steel wheels and aluminum wheels is the corrosion resistance. Aluminum wheels will stand the test of time much better than steel wheels. The capacities between something like the Taskmaster # TA52FR and the HWT # AM22646 will be the same at 2,830 pounds per wheel. As long as the wheels capacity meets your needs, which either of these definitely will, this shouldn't be an issue. The other big difference is the designs. Steel wheels really only have 3 to 4 styles,...

  • Lug Nuts And Center Caps For The Aluminum HWT Hi-Spec Series 03 Mod Trailer Wheels
    The Aluminum HWT Hi-Spec Series 03 Mod Trailer Wheel - 15" x 6" Rim - 6 on 5-1/2 Item # AM22646 do not come with center caps or lug nuts. I recommend the Trailer Wheel Center Cap, Chrome, 4.25" Pilot Size Item # 425EZ for your center caps and Chrome Trailer Wheel Lug Nut - 1/2" - Qty 1 Item # 12CLN-L for lug nuts. These wheels also do require a valve stem. I recommend the Americana High Pressure Rubber Snap-In Valve Stem - 1-1/2" Long - Up to 80 psi Item # 12CLN-L.

  • Does The Aluminum HWT Hi-Spec Series 03 Mod Trailer Wheel # AM22646 Have a Pressure Rating?
    The Aluminum HWT Hi-Spec Series 03 Mod Trailer Wheel # AM22646 does not have a maximum pressure rating. The valve stem and tires are the parts which have a pressure rating. For instance this wheel will need a 0.453" valve stem which is offered in a 65PSI Stem # AM20903, 80PSI Stem # AM20904 or up to 200PSI Stem # AM20906.

  • Why Is The Taskmaster AX02560655BML Less Expensive Than Other Wheels Of The Same Size?
    Please keep in mind this is a little speculative as I don't have a solid reason for it, but I think it is due to them not being a very popular model. These still have the Lifetime Warranty against structural defects, a 2,830 pound capacity, and include the valve stem and center cap, so it's not like you are getting a lesser wheel by any means. Especially when you look at the exact same wheel in silver ( # AX02560655FPS), which is more expensive. This could also me due to the cost of materials...
