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.


Improved Torque Retention Technology

Beveled Stud Holes Front and Back

The automotive-rated center disc is raised and the stud holes are beveled and uncoated for better clamp force retention. This technology helps the wheel stay tight against your hub without the need for constant retightening.


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"

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


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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

  • Taskmaster Steel Modular Trailer Wheel Compatibility With 1969 Toyota Land Cruiser
    The Taskmaster Steel Modular Trailer Wheel - 16" x 6" Rim - 6 on 5-1/2 - White # TA97VR have a zero off-set, so the point that the wheel mounts to the hub is exactly 1/2 way between the edges of the wheel's bead seats. These tires will mount with 3 inches behind the face of the hub accounting for 3 inches of backspacing without the tire dimension. Trailer wheels can be used as long as you are within the weight ratings of the wheel on your 1969 Toyota Land Cruiser. I do recommend using...

  • Measuring Bolt Pattern for Wheels on Military Trailer
    We do have a large selection of trailer wheels that feature a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern, but not a 6 on 5 inch pattern like what you mentioned in your question. I recommend verifying this measurement on your existing trailer wheels. Since you have an even number of lugs, you will just want to measure center-to-center on lugs directly across from each other. I have attached a link that will take you to our available wheels that have a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern. You can use the facets...

  • Can Trailer with Downward Bow in Axle be Towed with Little Cargo Weight
    You shouldn't have a problem with towing a trailer with less than 300 lbs of cargo weight unless the trailer isn't rated to tow very much and your cargo is overloading it. The thing that concerns me is when you say that the bow of the axle is downward. It should be bowing up so that when weight is added to your trailer the axle straightens out (see attached picture). You may be able to get home with the axle like that and very little cargo weight but I would look into changing it out before...

  • Is It Normal for Trailer Wheels to Bow Out At the Bottom
    What you describe isn't normal. Trailer axles are manufactured with a bow or crown in them, a slight arc with the high side on the top of the axle. When the trailer is loaded, the axle will straighten out so the tires make even contact with the pavement. If the trailer is overloaded, the axle and spindles will bow the wrong way, causing the inside edge of the tire to have most of the contact with the pavement. It sounds like your trailer has been overloaded at some point which might have...

  • What is Max Tire Pressure for Taskmaster Modular Trailer Wheel # TA97VR
    The Taskmaster Steel Modular Trailer Wheel # TA97VR that you referenced has a valve stem that is rated for 80-110 psi..

  • What Causes Trailer Tires to Fail/Tire Recommendation for Size ST225/75R15
    Tire failure is usually caused by a few things. It can be from overloading the trailer, improper tire inflation, and/or exceeding the speed rating for the tire. You should verify that the tire capacity you have for you trailer is adequate for how much your trailer weighs. The pressure ran in the tires makes a big difference in longevity too. ST tires should be ran with the full pressure rating stated on the side of the tire, for full load capacity and longevity of the tire. If lower pressures...

  • Recommended Wheel Compatibility with 110 PSI Tire
    The trailer wheels like the Taskmaster Steel Modular Trailer Wheel - 16" x 6" Rim - 6 on 5-1/2 - White # TA97VR are not independently rated for PSI. This wheel will work with a tire that requires that PSI if you change the valve stem out for one rated that high. I recommend the Americana Metal, Bolt-In Valve Stem - 1-1/4" Long - Over 100 psi # AM20906 for that application.

  • What Is the PSI Rating of the 16 Aluminum Lynx Trailer Wheel
    The Aluminum Lynx Trailer Wheel part # 274-000038 does not have a psi rating as is the case for any wheel. The psi rating comes from the valve stem which for this setup would be 100 psi plus. If you are looking to upgrade the psi you can use the Americana Metal, Bolt-In Valve Stem part # AM20906 exceeding psi is not really what would cause the wheel to crack. This would likely be from overloading or manufacturing defects. If you want to switch to a more durable steel wheel, I recommend...

  • Valve Stem Ratting of the Taskmaster Steel Modular Trailer Wheel Part TA97VR

  • Will a 16" Wheel Fit A Jayco 5th Wheel RSTS Trailer
    In order to determine if you have space for a larger wheel/tire you need to measure the distance from the top of the tire to the bottom of the fender and then from the inside of the tire to the outside of the frame. We recommend at least 3" on top and 1" inside so if the new larger size allows for this then you'll be good to go. The Karrier ST235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire part # AM10248 for example measures 30.9" diameter x 9.4". This would then pair great with the Taskmaster Steel Modular...

  • What Is The PSI Rating Of The Taskmaster Steel Modular Trailer Wheel
    The determining factor of how much PSI the Taskmaster Steel Modular Trailer Wheel # TA97VR will be the style of the valve stem. The Taskmaster Steel Wheel appears to have reinforcement between the rubber and the threads like # AM20904. That style of valve stem is rated for 80 to 100 PSI. If you need to run your tires at a higher PSI, you will need to use metal valve stems like # AM20906, which is rated for over 100 PSI.

    I do have an option for you but the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - Spindle w/Brake Flange part # ASR2000S02 are not made for that large of a tire. A 33" tire like the Goodyear ST255/85R16 part # 724862519 has a section width of 10.04" with a 33" diameter so there will not be enough clearance to use this Timbren system.
