Wheel FAQS

Wheel Selection

A great deal of consideration should be given when selecting trailer wheels.  Whether it is for a landscape trailer, cargo trailer, RV, or travel trailer, we carry it all!  Important choices must be made from the various wheels on the market today.  When combining wheels, tires, hubs and axles, the load carrying capacity is limited to whichever component has the lowest capacity.  Load capacities relate specifically to generally accepted standard axle application for conventional trailers used in normal highway service, loaded equally, side-to-side.  Unusual axle configurations, unequal force and off loading, or overload conditions can cause premature failure of wheels, tires, and/or other parts.

How to Determine Bolt Pattern

Match wheels to hubs by the number of bolts and bolt circle.  To determine the bolt circle on wheels with an even number of bolt holes, measure center-to-center on bolt holes directly across from each other on the diameter (example: 8 on 6-1/2 would mean 8-bolt holes with 6-1/2" center-to-center diameter).  On odd number bolt wheels, measure any bolt hole center to the point halfway between bolt holes on the diameter (example: 5 on 4-1/2 would mean 5-bolt holes with 4-1/2" measure to a point halfway between the opposite bolts).

How to Determine Wheel Offset

Offset = distance between the mounting face of the disc and rim centerline.

Inset = refers to the distance when the mounting face is outbound of the rim centerline.

Outset = refers to the distance when the mounting face is inbound of the rim centerline.
