Built-In Offset for Dual Applications

This wheel is designed to be used in dual-wheel setups. The 5.35" offset allows the wheel to be positioned closer to the trailer frame when used as the inner wheel of the setup. And if you use this wheel in the outer position, the offset ensures that it will sit closer to the outside of your trailer. This hub-piloted wheel centers on the hub, not the lugs, and it requires the use of flange nuts (sold separately) for installation.

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.

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"

16" x 6" Hub-piloted wheel has a 4.77" pilot diameter hole. ±5.35" Offset allows wheel to be used as the inner or outer wheel of a dual-wheel setup. Acrylic enamel finish resists damage better than powder coat finishes.


Very fast shipping. Very happy with the wheels. I had my tires mounted and balanced on the new wheels within 2 hours. Out of 8 steel wheels 3 were perfect without any weights. 3 took 3 oz. of weight. 2 needed 3 oz. plus. I'm very happy with the purchase.


These wheels do fit an 8 lug Dana 70 axel with a 6.5" bolt pattern on a 1968 Ford dually with drum brakes. Seems the internet gave me a runaround with many messages saying "they will not work!" The only downside is there is no interlocking for hub to hub, like my Ford rims with raised and depressed lug holes. However, I'm running singles for the time being, so for me there is no issue.


Nice quality wheels. Ordered 8 of them for a flatbed trailer. Worked well on a 1,200 mile trip hauling 13,000 lbs of equipment directly after replacing the old rims with no issues. Thank you for providing a quality product at a great price with good customer service!


Heavy duty wheel. Great price. Definitely recommend. Bought it for a spare for my gooseneck, tandem dual dump trailer.


This wheel was supposed to have a 4.77" center bore. The one they sent is a 4.90" center bore. I was told by the factory not to use anything but a 4.77" or my studs will break off of the Dexter axle. I have not heard back yet on what etrailer can do.

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.

We found what we needed easily and received it early. Excellent service and products. Look forward to doing business in the future.


Very pleased with the paint quality, accuracy of hole location and diameter of the hub center. It was a plus to see it came with a steel valve stem installed and plus they arrived 4 days ahead of their expected delivery date! The less amount of down time the best!


Great product, great price and great turn around time to get them.


The paint still looks good and there is no cracking.


This is what I needed to have a spare tire for my RV

great price and perfect fit!!


I was disappointed that some of the enamel was chipped off.


Arrived on time! Easy process


Perfect replacement to get rid of 16 1/2 inch wheels for my Dexter 10 ton axles


Accurate description and fast shipping. Nice rim.


Delivery was horrible.they did not ring the bell, left heavy long box on the street outside the gate. I can not lift heavy weights due to health condition, but had no choice and pushed it inside, jeopardizing my condition.


Received in a timely manner.


Vesper is a great manufacturer of wheels, so glad you carry them!


Received promptly and functioning as it should.


Wish etrailer had one with a 4.60 pilot hole to perfectly fit the Chevy Express 4500 cutaway, but this is for a spare.


My order was filled accurately, shipping was on time and the wheels look great, and are exactly as ordered... what more could you want from a purchase experience...?


Online ordering was easy item was delivered quicker than what they said overall quality of the product was very good


Crazy fast and great service!! Product looks very nice.


Quality product great price delivered on time highly recommend

  • What Does The Letter Found After The Wheel Size On Some Wheels Mean?
    The letters you mentioned after the wheel width are the wheel contour. Wheel contour is the design of the beads on the wheels, and while they are important, they will work with nearly all tires correct for that width and size. Typically the wheel contour letter is more commonly found on wheels on heavy trucks and trailers, or agricultural vehicles.

  • How To Confirm Fit of Vesper 16 Steel Dual Trailer Wheel

It's a 16" wheel therefore designed for 16" tires. You'll also need to confirm the bolt pattern which is 8 on 6-1/2". I have attached a general tire FAQ below you will find helpful.

    Yes. The Vesper Steel Dual Trailer Wheel - 16" x 6" - 8 on 6-1/2 - 4.77" Pilot - Silver # TA56FR can be used on a Class C RV, so as long as your 2019 E-250 Cutaway has a 16" dual rear wheel with an 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern; as long as that is true then this will work for you. This wheel has a 3860-lbs capacity.

  • Replacement 16 Inch 8 Lug Wheel With 5.35 Inch Offset for 245/75R16 Tire
    It sounds like you're needing the Vesper Steel 16" wheel. This comes with a 4.77" Pilot Hole as part # TA56FR or a 4.88" Pilot Hole as part # MX89FR. These have a 16" diameter and a 6" width which will fit just fine for your 245/7R16 tires just fine. If you measure bead seat to bead seat it should measure closer to that 6" width. Aside from that width all of the other specs match when you convert millimeters to inches.

  • Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for 2012 Ford F-350 w/ Prep Package
    Thanks for the picture! Based on the dimensions it looks like you have the 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Ford Towing Prep Package on your 2012 Ford F-350. For hauling your 2009 Jayco Recon ZX M-39 A, I recommend the Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch item # RP30921. This heavy-duty hitch has a wraparound jaw that offers superior jaw-to-king-pin contact for maximum security and minimum rattle. It has a 20,000 lbs weight capacity.

  • Can Valve Stem Extensions Be Used With The Vesper Steel Dual Trailer Wheel
    When it comes replacing valve stems to longer valve stems the diameter of the stem hole on Vesper Wheel # TA56FR is 0.453 inches, so I recommend The Wheel Masters 4-Hose Inflation Kit - 16" to 19-1/2" Dually - Hub Mount # WM8001. These extenders work with rims between 16 inches to 19-1/2 inches. They're stainless-steel-wrapped, 2-ply rubber tubing with nylon braiding. The straight hose is 13 inches from tip to tip and the 90-degree hose is 10 inches from bend to tip. These extenders...

  • What Spare Tire And Rim Will Fit My ST235/80R-16 With A 4.77" Pilot Hole And 8 Bolt Pattern
    It sounds like you need Vesper Steel Dual Trailer Wheel - 16" x 6" - 8 on 6-1/2 - 4.77" Pilot - Silver # TA56FR. This matches your wheel diameter of 16" and has a 4.77" pilot diameter and is 8 on 6-1/2" like you need. However, this measures 6" wide, whereas you say that your current wheel is 8" wide. I checked SRW's website and didn't see any 16" x 8" wheels like that so I would double check that you do in fact have 8" wide wheels. We do not have any 16" x 8" wheels. If you need a tire...

  • Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch and B&W Companion for Ford F-350 Flatbed
    For your 2012 Ford F-350 Flatbed I recommend the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Flatbed Trucks - 30,000 lbs item # BWGNRK1500. This will mount level with the bed for you to have an attachment point for your 5th wheel hitch. For your 5th wheel hitch I recommend one of the best ones on the market. It is the B&W Companion Flatbed Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter item # BWRVK3050. The Companion has a 25,000 lbs towing capacity and its dual locking jaw gives...

  • Spare 16 Wheel Needed for 2017 Ford E450 Class C RV
    We do have some replacement wheels that you can see with parts # AM20783, # LHHA420, and # TA56FR if you're only needing the wheel. Since this is on a motorhome you're actually going to need to look into regular vehicle tires if you need a tire as well. We only handle trailer tires and even though they look similar they have a different type of design so you won't want to use anything we have as a replacement for your motorhome. That extra hole is so that you ca align both wheels on a...

  • Trailer Tires to Replace P235/70-15 Car Tires on a Horse Trailer with Dually Wheels
    You definitely need to replace the tires with trailer tires. Trailer tires are built with a thicker sidewall than car tires to handle more vertical load. The steel wheels are pretty much the same as the black steel wheels such as # AM20514 so they are likely going to be fine. The smallest dually wheels we have are 16 inch, # TA56FR, which uses an 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern. On the wheels you have you could likely use a 225/75-15 size which would only be 0.394 inches more narrow and 0.33 inches...

    I would be happy to help you find some spare parts for your 2009 RV Jayco Recon ZX M-39 A. It sounds like you need brake assemblies, brake drums, leaf springs, and equalizers.
