Wheel bolt pattern for 2012 Wildwood 26TBSS - sort of urgent...

I want to apologize first. This is probably a duplicate post or probably already answered somewhere in a previous thread or post, but I am in a time crunch traveling and could not find the answer quickly, so my apologies if it is a duplicate or I have posted in the wrong place. I am currently set up in my 2012 Wildwood 26 TBSS double axle and just noticed the two tires on the right side of my camper are toast. Chunks of rubber have come off and wire cords are visible in several spots, along with pretty much no thread left on outside 1/4 of tire. I probably have a bigger issue at play with the axle alignment or something, but I will address that later. Right now I am just needing to get two replacement tires and wheels ASAP to get rolling again and get it home. The tires on it are 205/75D15 and I just assumed they would be the standard 5 hole on 4.5 bolt pattern. So I was headed to my local tractor supply to pick up two new ones. But before I left I decided to measure the studs just to make sure they weren't 5 on 5 since it is going to be about a 2 1/2 hour trip to get to my nearest tractor supply. I pulled up a measuring tool / converter online to determine the correct bolt pattern that is on the camper and when I measure according to the directions, I am finding that the wheels on my camper appear to be 5 on 4.75 bolt pattern??? This is an uncommon pattern so does anyone happen to know if this is correct? Of course, it appears the only 5 on 4.75 I can find is special order and will take 2 to 3 days to get here expedited. Anyone know for sure on the correct bolt pattern for my camper by chance? Thanks in advance for any assistance anyone can give. Attached are a couple of images of my measurements. Since the wheels are still on the camper, I am measuring from center to center on two adjacent studs and it is 2 3/4" on the nose, so that should convert to a 5 on 4 3/4" pattern. It is definitely not 2 5/8" which would be 5 on 4 1/2" and not 3" which would be 5 on 5".

Thanks

Roccy

Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. I have to ask why are you replacing the rims when it is the tires that have the problem? What difference is the bolt pattern if thats what fits your axles?

My camper did not come with any spares so I have been planning to get one or two anyway. I know the other side tires will most likely not be far behind needing replaced. So my thought process was to go buy two new tire / wheel combos and replace the bad ones with those then just get new tires put on the old wheels and have two spares available. Where the camper was currrently parked, I was not comfortable jacking it up and leaving it on blocks for 5 or 6 hours with the family going in and out while trying to get new tires mounted the old wheels.

How big is the gap between the silver clip on the end of the tape and the tape?

No doubt you've figured it out by now, but what did you finally come up with.

Were they 5 on 4"?

The measuring description says on 5 stud wheel (CE) to measure from the center of one stud to the edge of another stud. Your picture shows it to be 2 5/8". You said you measured center to center, that is wrong.

Good catch on the "CE" except, he did do the measurement so it came out right in his pic, he has the end of the tape in the center of one stud and past the outside of the other stud. Which matches the CE diagram. So it measures 3". Which then equates to a 5" bolt pattern.
