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 (D) 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"

Fantastic match for my sidecar rig.




by:

Very happy with the quality, much better than the galvanized wheels that came with the trailer. The trailer is aluminum, now the wheels are also. Important for the boat trailer that will see salt water at times.




by:

They really dressed up my 1956 boat trailer! Wouldn't you agree




by:

From the initial click online to receiving my wheels at my front door, etrailer.com has provided me excellence in customer service, timely delivery, and perfectly a packaged product. The wheels are on a trailer that I pull behind a 2012 Honda Gold Wing with a Motor Trike Kit on the front end. We're headed for Denver, CO in a couple of weeks so when I dig the trailer out of my garage, I'll snap a few Pic and email them to you. Now I guess you'll have to add a Motorcycle to the page with the vehicles you service.

Love the looks of them. I think they really dress up the looks of my trailer.

Nice product sleek look.. rims were exactly what I ordered. Looks extremely nice on my trailer.

Ran across these wheels looking for plain wheels for trailer. They look great and price I thought was very good. they even had a box at bottom of page to get the lug nuts and center caps. I will be back for sure. Thanks.

I have yet to install these but I was blown away how fast these rims arrived from when I ordered online to my door was less than 7 days (international) they look great pulling out of the double box they were shipped in ,

Review from a similar Hi-Spec Series S5 in Trailer Tires and Wheels

Review from a similar Hi-Spec Series S5 in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Wheels arrived with all 5 of them damaged. Hundreds of spots scratches, dings and scraped off paint. This would have been 100% preventable had they been packaged better. They were shipped in two boxes. 3 in one box, 2 in another. Second ups guy grabbed box to take off truck you could hear them clanking around from poor packaging. I opened the boxes to find a very disappointing site. Could not believe how there was practically nothing used to protect each wheel. They should be completely wrapped in bubble wrap. Instead, a piece of thin brown paper tossed in there. They also use a carboard retainer stapled in. They break right off then the ridgid staples that stick thru do even more damage to the wheels. Two wheels at least had a plastic bag over them but still nowhere near enough to prevent damage.

After reading reviews I see this is a common theme. Many others report same problems. Clearly nothing has been done to improve the packaging process yet.

This is a problem. Especially when this is a core part of your business. It is not like etrailer is new to this and made a 1 time mistake. When you have others reporting issues over months and years of same shipping damage and you do nothing to resolve this to prevent the damage from ever happening then this is very concerning.

I have little faith a replacement order will be packaged well enough to arrive in good shape.

This is 100% on etrailer and not the shippers fault. You have to protect each wheel much better then you currently do for shipment. Extra pieces of cardboard on each side of the box. Bubble wrap around each wheel. Styrofoam. Etc. This is completely unacceptable. Revise your process asap!

Attached are photos that represent a small sample of the damage.


Comments
We do not like to see this kind of damage. I have sent your information over to our customer service department for them to better assist you.

Review from a similar Hi-Spec Series S5 in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I was not compensated for this review, and am a regular etrailer customer. I opted for this wheel/tire combo as a refresh on my travel trailer because I wanted something that wouldn't rust. Plus, I wanted something that looked nicer than the plain ol' steel white rim. The specs of this combo were an exact match (lug pattern, pilot hole size, tire/rim size and the load range I wanted). Each rim/tire was shipped in its own heavy duty cardboard box.

Pros: Love the look. Weight is less than the steel rims they replaced. Very well made - no flaws in the finish, and the tires appear to be top of the line. My center caps (not included) fit perfectly into the pilot hole. My old tires were Load Range 'C', and as soon as I lowered the trailer onto these Load Range 'D' tires, I could tell a major difference in how much less the trailer was moving/swaying as I moved around. Very happy with that!

Cons: Really none.

Thoughts to share on my experience mounting the tires: One minor annoyance... There's a sticker on each rim that says; Use Soap & Water only - don't use harsh chemicals to clean or it may discolor the finish. Well, the stickers have permanent stick glue instead of an easy release adhesive like those yellow sticky notes. I had to use chemicals to get the glue off, and DON'T EVEN THINK OF USING A SCRAPER or you'll scratch the finish. Take your time - soak a rag with Goo remover and place the rag on top of the sticker to let it sink in. Then use your fingernail to scrape it off. Repeat process until glue is gone, then follow up with a little soapy water to get the chemicals off.
** Maybe etrailer can switch to using a sticky note that won't leave any residue behind.

Final thoughts: I would definitely buy this combo again, absolutely no regrets. Worth the money, and the delivery time was as described. Thanks etrailer!!

Review from a similar Hi-Spec Series S5 in Trailer Tires and Wheels


The product appears well made as the tire is radial and the wheels are an aluminum alloy. I am sure both the tires and the wheels will perform well for years to come. Sadly and unfortunately I feel compelled to rate the product as only a 1 star because of a silly issue: Both the tires and the wheels have stickers on them that are very hard to remove. The tire stickers are glued on and can be rubbed off using GOO GONE solvent. But the glue remains as a reddish mess that takes a fair amount of elbow grease to get rid of. The worse part of the situation is the sticker on the wheel. It says to use water and soap to wash the wheels, as the wheels finish might get damaged by hearsh chemicals. Problem is, how do you get rid of that sticker ? I tried to use water and soap to no avail, then I used a plastic spatula and GOO GONE. It took for ever but finally dissolved the sticker and the glue. But now the finish is scratched and damaged where the sticker used to be. I suggest the manufacturer uses a tag or any other way to inform the buyer. Those stickers are evil !

Review from a similar Hi-Spec Series S5 in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I received the wheels yesterday and had the tires, I had already purchased from you, mounted today. They look great when I installed them on my small utility trailer. Both the tires and wheels arrived on time and were securely packaged. I'm very pleased with the whole purchasing process. I only wish I was able to have purchased the tires and wheels already mounted as one package.

    The only 4 on 4 bolt pattern aluminum 12" wheel available is the Aluminum Split Spoke Trailer Wheel part # AM22318HWT can be used on trailer hubs that use wheel bolts (hub-centric) or with lug nuts (lug-centric). It sounds like your existing wheels may be hub-centric which means your wheels center on the hub using the hub bore rather than centering with lug nuts. That means the pilot hole diameter of the existing wheel needs to match the new wheel pilot hole diameter exactly. As long...

  • Is The HWT Aluminum Trailer Wheel AM22318HWT A Brushed Or Polished Finish?
    I double checked and the HWT Aluminum Trailer Wheel # AM22318HWT is kind of in between brushed and polished. Confusing answer I know, but you can still see the lines where is was turned on a lathe, but is is also not the dull finish of a fully brushed wheel either. There is reflectiveness, but not polished to the point of being anywhere near a mirror finish. For the lack of a better way to put it, the # AM22318HWT will be a hybrid of the polished and brushed finishes, but more on the...

  • 145/R12 Load Range E Trailer Tire and Aluminum Wheel with 4 on 4 Bolt Pattern
    There are so many possible tire and wheel combinations that manufacturers have chosen to provide only the most common set ups. But a local tire shop will be able to mount a tire on a wheel for a nominal fee. For a 145/R12 Load Range E tire we have # AM10140. For 12 inch aluminum wheels with 4 on 4 bolt pattern there are a few options: # AM22318HWT # AM22318HWTB I have linked videos for each of the wheels and the tire for you.

  • 12 Inch Wheel Recommendation For Trailer
    The galvanizing process on the wheels we offer like part # AM20124, do have a shinier finish.

Also, it has a capacity of 1,220 lbs at 80 psi.

  • Smallest Trailer Tire with Speed Rating Over 80 Miles Per Hour
    Eight inch trailer tires max out at 65 miles per hour. They are so small that at speeds above that they would have so many revolutions that they would get excessively hot and fail.
