Freight haulers pull trailers full of goods to businesses throughout the country. The long haulers travel across road conditions that can cause wear-and-tear to the trailer tires, eventually causing the driver to have the tires on his trailer replaced.

Deciding on the right tires for your trailer is essential to ensure the best traction and wear resistance so that the shipment can reach its destination. Since trailers have no driving mechanism to move the tires, only braking equipment, the trailer tires must allow for full stability on the road without the trailer swaying during turns if the trailer has high side loads.

How to measure your trailer rim lug pattern

When you’re looking to upgrade the wheels on your trailer or you need new trailer wheel hubs, you need to know the lug pattern to determine the correct size. Typical trailer wheel sizes range from 14-to-18-inch with 4 lug, 5 lug, 6 lug or 8 lug patterns. The lug pattern measures the diameter around the circle formed by the lugs on the wheel. Two numbers designate lug patterns, the first is the number of lugs on the wheel and the second is the distance measured across from each lug, or the diameter.
