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 product. I got it for my Triton ATV trailer. Make sure check the size of the frame it needs to be installed. On the Triton trailer the frame is a bit bigger so I had to modify the installation but it wasn't a big deal. It was my fault haven't measured the frame size. I recommend this product.


This is a easy and straightforward installation, the instructions are very well written and easy to understand, it took me approximately seven minutes to install. I did a lot of research online for a spare tire mount and found this one to be the least expensive and has the highest customer ratings of all that I looked at. I have an aluminum trailer and it shows to mount it in this location, i’m not sure it will work being so close to the hitch I may have to move it to the side of the trailer which means I’ll have to drill holes I’ll post pics if I do .

Time for the yearly review, I have to say this was an awesome purchase, it outside all year long and their is no rust on it. Too bad I can’t post pictures, but I have to say if you want a quality spare tire mount this is the one you should get hands-down.

The carriage bolts are 1/2 NC bolt with hex nuts. This will damage the lug nut seat on an aluminum wheel. the bolt should be a thread pitch for a lug nut.


Exactly what I needed to mount my spare tire onto the trailer. The trailer side rails are 2 inch square and the carriage bolts included with the mount worked perfectly.


Item appears to be well built, even though it was made in china. It would be much nicer if the carriage bolts used to hold the wheel on were 1/2"-20 threads and came with lug nuts so you could actually bolt a spare tire to the spare tire carrier using lug nuts. The 1/2"-13 carriage bolts that come with the spare tire carrier require you to you regular nuts with washers that would scratch the spare wheel. I found 1/2"-20 carriage bolts at [online retailer] that I had to purchase separately.


I needed a way to carry a spare tire on my ATV trailer before my luck ran out and I got stranded with a flat. This works perfectly. It's well contructed, and should last for the life of the trailer. The description allowed me to be sure it would fit, and customer service has been very good.

Very happy, it does exactly what I need it to do.

Fantastic price, great selection, and free shipping to boot. I needed new tires for a long ATV trip and wanted a spare tire as well (I know, I know, but I usually only trailer locally). I ordered these radial tires and rims pre-mounted which allowed me to use one of the old wheels as my spare. Everything performed flawlessly over about 600 miles and even held their torque specs when I checked them during and after the trip. The spare tire carrier compliments the galvanized trailer frame and rims and looks like it will hold up to the elements of the North East. All in all, I highly recommend these products and etrailer.


This is a well constructed Fulton Hi-Mount offset spare tire carrier for my 1956 trailer. It fit perfectly on may 3" main channel with parts to spare. The shorter bolts may be useful elsewhere. There is plenty of ground clearance for my 5 hole 8" spare tire with plenty of clearance from the bumper and trailer jack. This took me about 30 minutes to install on the side yard of my garage. It may have taken me longer due to the need to locate the tools I would need for the installation but I was in no rush. With the spare tire mounted high and aft of the tongue hitch it feels very secure for highway travel. I may need to fine a way to lock the tire to the trailer to deter theft but I am happy with this unit so far.


This is the second product I have ordered from etrailer and I must say I am a satisfied customer. Products are as described (no surprises) and were shipped fast to my house. I bought the trailer hitch kit and mounted to my VW Tiguan. Everything lined up perfectly. I recently ordered the spare tire mount for my LoadRite trailer and and it fit perfectly. Great company with great products and excellent customer service


Quality is fine - nothing spectacular. Took FOREVER to arrive.


Would have given a 5 star but there should be a nut that holds the two tire mount bolts in place instead of a cheap clip that doesn’t hold the bolt firm enough to mount the tire without some difficulty. Other than that I like it!


This trailer spare tire mount is an excellent product. It is easy to attach on the trailer and takes all of about 10 minutes. The product is very well made and sturdy. My husband and I highly recommend this spare tire mount for trailers.

Thank you etrailer.

I have two little Honda CT-90's, and a couple of months ago I purchased a small utility trailer to haul them around on. I've been really concerned because there was no place for a spare tire. Problem solved. I bought your Fulton Hi-Mount spare tire rack and had it installed in about 30 minutes. The little 12" tire fits on the rack perfectly. THANKS!


Bought a used ATV trailer and needed a spare tire. Decided to replace both old wheels & tires with new, so needed to mount the 2 old wheels. This Tire Carrier fit perfectly on my trailer, start to finish I spent just 30 minutes total mounting the carrier & then the spares. A couple of notes, both 3" long & 4" long frame mounting bolts are provided, so the carrier would fit a wide range of trailer frames (mine was 2"x2"). Supplied tire nuts are 3/4 inch; trailer lug nuts are 13/16 but this was not an issue as I use an old-fashioned 4-way wheel wrench, which accommodates both size nuts. As mounted, both spares are perhaps 1/2" further out than the fenders, so a much better fit than I expected -- and no problem with the standard 5x4-1/2" wheel pattern, fit perfectly. Delivered promptly and zero issues, I will certainly use E-trailer again.


Had to add a spare tire on a trailer I purchased and this fit the bill for me. I don't think it is for an 8 inch wheel but it is on the trailer and the spare tire is mounted on it just fine.


Boater's have known for along time that Fulton products are a step above most others out there. I bought this spare tire bracket to replace one that was stolen along with my spare tire and rim. I put heavy chain around the trailer frame and thru the wheel this time as you can see in the picture. Many thanks to for being so fast with their shipping . This is the very best company I have seen in many years and they truly understand what consumers want--great customer service!


The material is very heavy duty and installation only took 15 minutes.
Works very well to free up more space in a small cargo trailer.

Continues to do the job. Some light corrosion as the result of salt treated roadways.don t

Nice quality fulton spare tire mount. Very sturdy, heavy duty with stainless mounting bolts. Fit my boat trailer without issue, keeping the new spare at a perfect location. Great price and very fast shipping from etrailer.


Placed my order hoping I would get it in a couple of weeks before I left for Maine.
Instead I got it in a "WEEK", how good is that for customer service! I also ordered the spare tire carrier FSTC1000301which came in the same shipment. I mounted it as you can see and it worked out great. Thanks George


Will use to mount a spare tire and wheel to my open car hauling trailer. It is well made. Installation instructions are complete and easy to follow. Very satisfied.


Bought this specifically because the dimensions shown for the product indicated that it would fit my trailer that has a 5” frame. Wrong. While the back brackets are 5+” long, the mount itself is only 4.5” from the center of the top hole to the center the furthest bottom hole. The drawing offered only shows the length of the back bracket and I assumed the mount would match the bracket length. Why would you make the bracket fit a 5” frame, but not the mount and why would you not make that clear? Seems intentionally misleading.


All my purchases from Etrailer have always been correct, shipped really fast and the customer service is great. Makes the buying experience enjoyable.


Very sturdy tire mount and worked very well for my trailer. I would recommend this product if you are in the market for one.

I still have the spare tire carrier and am still very happy with it. would recommend it others.

If you are looking for a sturdy spare tire mount for your utility trailer, then purchase the Fulton Hi-mount Spare Tire Carrier. The instructions are simple and the product installs as stated. Thanks again to etrailer for another great product.


I bought the spare tire, mount and cover cheaper than I could purchase just the exact same tire somewhere else. I received the tire and it was very easy to mount to my trailer and the cover made it look very professional. Would highly recommend.
