Does Trailer Wheel Pilot Diameter Matter when Picking Out New Wheels


Id like to buy two replacement trailer tires with a Load Range C to replace my Load Range B existing tires. I measured my existing tires and theyre a 4X4 bolt pattern four bolt holes that are 4inch across from each other. The pilot hole however is only 2 1/2inch and your tires are slightly larger at 2.85. Will the slightly larger pilot hole matter? Thx


Expert Reply:

A slightly larger pilot diameter doesn't matter as long as the wheel is a lug-centric wheel and not a hub-centric wheel. If your wheel are attached with lug nuts then you have a lug-centric wheel. If instead you use wheel bolts then the wheel is hub-centric and the pilot diameter needs to be exact.

Without knowing what your current tire size is it would be hard for me to know if the # AM30620 would be the correct replacement wheel and tire for you, but if you happen to have a 4.80-12 tire size stamped on the side wall of your tire this would work well for you.

I attached a review video for you to check out as well for this wheel.
