Availability of a Trailer Wheel to Use as a Spare for Old 4-Bolt Wheel with Larger Center Hole


I have these type of rims on a trailer I own I was wanting a spare rim for trailer will the star rims fit my hub ?

You might be able to use a vintage wheel if the center to center distance from one bolt hole to the other bolt hole of your existing wheels is 9.44 inches (a little over 9-7/16 inches).

We have the following vintage wheels:

13 inch wheel # AM20208
14 inch wheel # AM20312
15 x 5 inch wheel # AM20395
15 x 6 inch wheel # AM20501

But if the wheels you have now attach to the hub using wheel bolts instead of lug nuts then these vintage wheels will not fit.

It is hard to tell but that may be a split rim; a wheel that is 2 pieces. If so, we will not have anything that will fit. It could also be off of a mobile home axle. In either case I strongly advise replacing the axle so you can get new standard parts that aren't difficult to find. And also because if it is a mobile home axle those are meant for one time use only.
