I have a 2008 Keystone Sprinter 300KBS travel trailer with 225/75/15 tires and 15X6 5 lug steel wheels. I am looking to add aluminum wheels but I do not know the bolt pattern on the wheels and I am not getting any help from the manufacturer so I thought maybe someone here can help me.

HUH? You can see the wheel can't you? You can see the pattern? You say it's 5 lug. The bolt pattern for the particular size wheel would be common to all wheels of that size. So, what's the problem? Take a piece of cardboard that is larger than the diameter of the wheel. Place it over the wheel lugs and tap it with a hammer at each lug. Take the indented cardboard to the dealer where you want to buy wheels and match it with the wheel you want' Every Day is Saturday

Yes I can see the wheel; I am not blind or stupid. There are many different patterns for this size wheel and I was hoping to find someone with the same trailer and wheel package that might know what the pattern size is. I would like to find the wheels that I want before pulling the trailer into town.

The most common way to find out the correct bolt pattern is to measure "across" from side to side on the lug pattern, not from one to the next one. I think you'll find the most common bolt pattern will be what is called "5 on 4 1/2 inch", this is not to say the measurement will be precisely 4 1/2 inches across, but darn close, unless your pattern is a 6 lug arrangement or 8 as the bigger heavier rigs are. This terminology is what your wheel provider will be looking for. If you're buying aluminum wheels, make sure they're designed to hold what ever weight your camper will be, fully loaded. You may find out you'll need the proper length and number of thread lug nuts to go with the aluminum wheels since the aluminum wheels are usually thicker than standard steel wheels.

I did not mean to imply that you were blind or stupid. You could also just take one wheel off and take it to the dealer. Every Day is Saturday
