    That is an odd bolt pattern for a trailer axle as most are 5 on 4-1/2.

    I measured again. yes, 4 3/4 in. the car trailer was OK made about 15 yrs ago. I have a spare that I figure came off truck???? I've had the spare as long as the trailer. I went to Redneck trailer supply in springfield, they have wheel for like $60. bonytard spare would be $7-10, I got to make 700 mi trip with it and I need a second spare. my tires are old like me!!! LOL
    I was thinking it was maybe a older chevy truck size?????

    Try a 15" Chevy car wheel most where 4-3/4" bolt pattern.
