wheel bolt pattern

Any idea what the bolt pattern is? The axle manufacturer has 5 x 112. The spare tire is 5 x 4.5 (114.3). I'm guessing they put the correct spare on the camper. From what I can tell most trailers have an offset of 0. Has anyone used a car rim on these campers? My intention is to go with 15" wheels.

Most auto wheels are not rated for the pressures that camper tires require. Double check that they are compatible with ST tires before you buy them.

I noticed an optional "Mud Rover" tire. According to Dunlop it's just a truck tire, not an ST trailer tire. What gives? Anyone have this option? If so what is the size of the 15" "Mud Rover"? I like the looks of the alloy, and the steel trailer rims are a bit plain. That said, it's safety first and I can always powder coat the steel rims. I'm just looking for an economical, and safe wheel upgrade.

I don't know about the specifics of these tires, but the same marketing name is no assurance it is the same tire built for the same purpose. You can check with your dealer about ordering the tires and wheels from the factory. At least as a price comparison. You can also call FR (574-642-2640)and ask for the tire model number or check if a local dealer has some campers with the option on their lot, then refer the manufactures specifications. Also, since the option is for select models only, make sure your camper has the clearance for the larger tire size without the need for a lift kit. With those details, you can make a much more informed decision.

I don't mean to dissuade you, my practice is to "respect my own ignorance" because the failure to do so has gotten me into trouble from time to time.

On the forster river site, under hard side series. Optional for select floorplans. I have even seen the optional tire specified as "radial"

Thanks, let me go look.

EDIT: Ok, I see what you are you saying:

  • Easy Lube Axles
  • Spare Tire, Cover and Mount
  • 13" Radial Tires with Aluminum Wheels
  • 15" Mud Rover Radial Tires, Aluminum Wheels
    (Select Floorplans)
  • Electric Brakes


That doesn't make sense. I have to wonder if someone messed up at Forest River or are am I missing something here.
