Helpful Expert Reply:

While we definitely have a tire size of 20.5 x 8 x 10 (also written as 215/60-8), we only carry wheels that have a 2-1/2 inch center hole diameter. Since your current wheel has a 2-3/4 inch diameter hole, this provides you with clearance. You need to make sure that your hub's center hole provides enough clearance for where a 2-1/2" wheel diameter. For this reason, I recommend measuring your hub's center hole with calipers like the # PTW80157 to make sure there is enough space between your hubs and a 2-1/2 inch center hole. This is important because if there is not enough space, you won't be able to remove the wheel after it is installed because it can get stuck in the rim itself.

With that being said, if you have enough clearance, I recommend the Kenda 205/65-10 Bias Trailer Tire with 10" White Wheel - 4 on 4 - Load Range D # AM3H410 or the Kenda 205/65-10 Bias Trailer Tire with 10" Galvanized Wheel - 4 on 4 - Load Range E # AM3H470. Both of these bias tires have a steel construction for superior strength. The # AM3H470 includes a galvanized coat for better rust protection.

Question:

When measuring the hub with calipers it measures 2.486” as close to hub as I can measure. It does have a slight taper from base to outside Will that be enough clearance?

Helpful Expert Reply:

Yes, your 2.486 measurement should be enough clearance for you. I went ahead and pulled the # AM3H470 since we have that wheel/tire in stock here at the warehouse, and the center hole is exactly at 2-1/2 inches. Since your measurement is slightly less, you will have the clearance you need.
