Durable Acrylic Enamel Finish

Maxion Wheels Vesper Acrylic Enamel Finish

This wheel has a durable acrylic enamel finish on the front. The finish is applied after the wheel goes through an environmentally safe zinc phosphate pre-treatment and is coated with an e-coat primer layer. Compared to powder coat finishes, this finish resists getting chipped from flying road debris or scraped from hitting a curb for a longer period of time. These acrylic enamel wheels performed for more than 1,000 hours in salt spray tests.


Beveled Stud Holes

The stud holes on this steel wheel are beveled to ensure that the wheel stays tight against your trailer hub. This also eliminates the need to constantly retorque the lug nuts.


Determining the Bolt Pattern

The first number in the bolt pattern is the number of bolt holes. The second number denotes the diameter, in inches, of the circle on which the bolt holes sit.


Bolt Pattern - Odd

To determine the bolt-circle diameter on wheels with an odd number of bolt holes, measure from the center of any bolt hole to the point halfway between the two bolt holes directly across from the first. (Example: "5 on 4-1/2" means 5 bolt holes with 4-1/2" measured to a point halfway between the opposite bolt holes.)


Bolt Pattern - Even

On wheels with an even number of bolt holes, measure from the center of one bolt hole to the center of the hole directly across from it. (Example: "8 on 6-1/2" means 8 bolt holes with 6-1/2" from the center of one hole to the center of another on the opposite side.)


Bolt Pattern - Side

Measuring the distance from the center of one bolt hole on the wheel to the center of a bolt hole right next to it can also help to determine the bolt pattern.

  • If D = 2-5/8", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-1/2"
  • If D = 2-3/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-3/4"
  • If D = 3", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5"
  • If D = 3-1/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5-1/2"

Very good quality built wheel, good finish and workmanship. Fast delivery. Comes in a well protected easy to carry box. Highly recommend this wheel. Wish it came with an all metal valve stem, had to cut the rubber/metal valve stem off and install a quality all metal valve stem into it.




by:

What I wanted. Shipped quick. Fair price. Would absolutely use again!




by:

Fast shipment. Product as described and looks of good quality.




by:

Bought four of these about two and a half years ago. One started leaking around a weld seam, but now out of warranty. Had to get another one that matched the others, otherwise would have gone with another brand. Hoping none of the others nor this new one have the same issue.




by:

The wheel spun up true on the balancer before mounting the tire, which has been a problem with other sellers wheels. Thank you etrailer for offering a quality product with satisfactory quality control.

Review from a similar Steel Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


The wheel in itself is a great wheel for the price. however unbeknownst to me once these arrived i took them straight to the tire shop (in the box) with the new G rated 14ply trailer tires to have them mounted. tire shop advised that once they opened the boxes, several wheels were bent around the rim. although it looked ugly luckily, the tires mounted okay. i had to buy some chrome rings to cover the ugly bends and dents (so more money) and contacted etrailer only to be told "oh sorry to hear about that. what i should have done was sent them back but they were already mounted and i would be charged again for that. didnt get any credit or discount offer from etrailer, they just seemed to not care. i've always purchased my trailer parts from etrailer because they've always been good to me, but i guess good thing must come to an end.

Review from a similar Steel Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


If you want to use the standard trailer center cap that snaps on to the lug nuts don't buy this wheel. I had those caps already on my trailer and needed to replace 2 of the 4 wheels and was shocked and extremely disappointed when the center caps would not fit.

Review from a similar Steel Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I ordered the exact same wheel that I ordered a few months ago "Taskmaster Steel Modular Trailer Wheel - 15" x 5" Rim - 5 on 5 - Silver" The new wheels came in a different color. When I called, they told me that they cannot help it that the company discontinued the old Silver color and that this is the new Silver color. I believe that they should have changed the description to something different instead of trying to make it like it is the exact same wheel.


Comments
I apologize for the inconvenience. Item # F2519155021 is no longer available. It is a bit different in color and the weight rating is different also.

Review from a similar Steel Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Really enjoy your website very well done !
In Lincoln Nebraska we have a Camping World and Leach RV a family owned & Operated company in fact I worked for them for 18 years. Instead of paying their inflated prices I choose to shop with etrailer. Just hope that the wheel that I ordered makes it here soon as we have a out of town race coming up and I need a spare. If you wish to have your company name on the sides of two different race cars just let me know. We race in Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and Colorado.

Got ahead of scheduled delivery but they should have expedited for what they charge for shipping.

Review from a similar Steel Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I greatly appreciated the on time and fast deliver. The one rim was perfect no issues, but the other rim is bent with scratches on it. The box it was delivered in was really beat up and opening the box I expected to see a bent rim and it was.

Thank you for letting us know. We are happy to help and will have our customer service team reach out to you.

Review from a similar Steel Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


The service and shipping speed from etrailer was great. The wheel construction looks good. I was a little disappointed with the finish. The backside of the wheel was not painted very well with areas not being covered. The front was ok but there was already minor chipping on the edge. I touched everything up myself because I could but the manufacturer could put more paint on the product.

Terrific Service. Heavier Duty Wheels I Needed, In Stock, Received within 4 days. Unbelievable. Very, VERY Satisfied. Thank you ETrailer


Comments
Perfectly. The heavier wheels along with heavier duty radial trailer tires improved the trailer capacity and towability noticeably. Very wellworth the investment. Iwas able to use the former wheels & tires for an ATV trailer. Overall a great reason to continue to be an etrailer customer.
