Determining If Older Hub With 5 on 5-1/2" Bolt Pattern Can Be Replaced W/ More Common Bolt Pattern

Question:

I asked about steel wheels yesterday and I have to refine the info. I just got an old camper. The tires are 7.00 x 15 on old rusted split rims so they have to get replaced. I took a wheel off and the measurements are- 15 inch rim, 5 bolt pattern on 5.50 inches. The center hole is 3.75 inches wide. Anything available/ thanks

I may have an option for you, but unfortunately we do not offer any 15" diameter wheels with the 5 on 5-1/2" bolt pattern.

Instead the best option would be to replace your current hub assembly with one that has a more common bolt pattern if one is available.

To see if a hub is available I will need to know your bearing combination which can be found by removing one of your hubs and looking for the bearing number stamped in the face of both the inner and outer bearing as shown in the included picture of the # L44649.

If the bearings are worn to the point that you cannot read the bearing numbers you will need to use digital calipers # PTW80157 to precisely measure your spindle in the locations shown in the included diagram.

With the information mentioned above I would be happy to see what options are available for you, and make a recommendation.
