 5 hole pattern 16 inch wheels for trailer

My experience is 16 inch tires are for medium duty trucks and trailers up to probably 12,000 GVWR maybe 14,000 depending if they're dually. That said the lugs are usually 8 but may be 6.

If memory serves, the 16 inchers were used back in the 70's but astill may be 6 or 8 lugs.

As EW kind of hinted at, you won't find them, they don't exist.

The 5 bolt rim only goes up as big as 15", at 16" or bigger they are 6, 8 or 10 bolts per wheel.

If you are determined to go to 16" tires you will have to change the hubs and brakes if they are available for your spindle, otherwise you will need to change axles.

All of that is also dependent on whether or not the larger wheels will fit inside your fenders and such.


Best of luck.

Hmm is right. It's an AG wheel. It doesn't have a safety bead to retain the tire. And I wonder if it needs to be or is DOT-approved to be used on highway. And is it compatible strength and offset-wise? 2000lb. rating isn't much---I think it should be somewhere around 3500 if memory serves.

Explain the safety bead thing.

It looks like any other steel wheel, but I could be missing something........??

Clearly there is some sort of difference as Gemplers has seperate listings for "Ag Wheels" and "High Speed Trailer Wheels". I need to be educated.......

The safety bead of the rim is a groove on both sides of the rim that holds the bead of the tire in the event of it running flat. Compare that to a non-safety bead rim and you'll find the rim is angled back from the rim edge with nothing to obstruct the tire bead.

If you've ever lost pressure in a tractor tire---even a little--you found the tire came off the rim in a flash.

A DOT-approved or for-highway-use tire will usually stay on the rim even at high speed. And even when totally flat and nearly shredded you can still drive on it since the rim is riding on the inside of the tire carcass.

FWIW, having off-road tires on my equipment--especially a heavy skid steer-- I prefer to use inner tubes to prevent sudden air loss and subsequent tire dismounting.

Mark, EW nailed it, but the real devil lives in the details.

An AG rim (like that you referenced) is a 5 hole rim, but the studs are in a 5.5" circle and the center pilot hole is 4".

A trailer hub has 5 bolts in a 4.5" circle, and it has a 3.19" center pilot hole.

They do that on purpose so that the two are not interchangeable.

You can however, if you are so inclined, still get a machine shop to cut out and replace the center of the rim, but that gets spendy fast.

But as I mentioned above, overall size will be an issue, the difference between a 'standard' 15" trailer tire and a 16" is about 4.75" in diameter. On most trailers that will cause clearance issues.

Best of luck.

And don't bother asking for a receipt for machine shop work as no one in their right mind would want to accept that liability.
