Extreme Salt Resistance (ESR) Finish Is Environmentally Friendly

This wheel has an extreme salt resistance (ESR) matte black finish, which is sprayed on over a layer of e-coat primer. Compared to galvanized finishes, this highly corrosion-resistant finish withstands the effects of saltwater and inclement weather for a longer period of time. ESR-finished wheels performed for more than 700 hours in salt spray tests.


In addition, this ESR finish is an eco-friendly alternative to galvanized finishes, which can be bad for the environment.


Improved Torque Retention Technology

Dark Matter Beneved Lug Holes

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"

Video Transcript for Taskmaster Tires and Wheels - Wheel Only - 660865M1LDMX Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the 16" x 6" Dark Matter Steel Modular Boat Trailer Wheel with the 8 on 6-1/2" Bolt Pattern with the Matte Black Finish.Now, this is a sturdy steel boat trailer wheel with the modular design. When we say "modular design," that's the one that has the round holes all the way around the wheel. This one uses a matte black finish that's sprayed on over an e-coat primer. Makes it very corrosion-resistant.The finish they put on it is a ESR finish, which stands for extreme salt resistance. This'll help weather the elements better than galvanized finishes, and compared to galvanized finishes, this highly corrosion-resistant finish will withstand the effects of salt water and inclement weather for a longer period of time. In addition, this ESR finish is an eco-friendly alternative to galvanized finishes, which are extremely toxic to the environment.

This uses a tough, environmentally-friendly coating. It won't corrode on contact with salt water. It's excellent corrosion-resistance with a salt-spray rating of more than 700 hours.This wheel does use the ITR technology, which is improved torque retention. This is designed to help keep your wheels securely in place on your trailer. Basically, they use uncoated stud holes here which are beveled to give you better clamp force retention.

You'll notice the valve stem is included with the wheel.A few specs on this. The diameter, which is 16", and that's always measured inside to inside, or bead seat to bead seat. If we put a ruler on that, you can see it's going be right at 16" diameter. The width on the wheels are going to be the same way, that's bead seat to bead seat, so inside to inside. That's right at 6", so 16" diameter by 6" wide.The bolt pattern on this wheel is an 8 on 6-1/2" bolt pattern.

If you want to measure that on a wheel that's an even number of lugs, it's pretty easy. All you have to do is pick any one of the holes, and then when you pick this hole, let's say you pick this one, you can measure from the center of that hole directly across to the center of the hole right across from it. I'm just going to try to show you here. If we take a ruler on there, you can see center right to center, 6-1/2", so 8 on 6-1/2" bolt pattern.This wheel does use a wheel lug size of either 1/2" by 20, or 9/16" by 18. Weight capacity on this wheel is 3,750 pounds.

The last measurement is the pilot hole diameter, which is the measurement of the opening right here. Pilot hole, this is where it'll go over the hub on your trailer. Diameter of this opening is 5.12".But that should do it for the review on the 16" x 6" Dark Matter Steel Modular Boat Trailer Wheel with the 8 on 6-1/2" Bolt Pattern and the Matte Black Finish.

First thought, I don't rate anything a 5 unless it's a winning power ball ticket. That said, the wheel I ordered was exactly what I needed to put a spare tire on my dump trailer. The wheel, and grease hub caps, ordered were well represented and explained on the website, were a good quality product at a good price and arrived a lot sooner than I expected. I am definitely a fan or etrailer.com. 732734

Review from a similar Dark Matter ESR in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Rims are ok, disappointed in the coating. It seems pretty soft. The matte black has already chipped away on the edges of the rim from rubbing in the box shipped. I suppose I will have to repaint these as they will rust. I was under the impression that this coating was more durable. I'm having a hard time believing that. 702693

Review from a similar Dark Matter ESR in Trailer Tires and Wheels


The Rims looked great and performed well. the shipping on them damaged the finish on them but after speaking with the Manufacturer, it turns out the ESR is a steel treatment and the finish is basically just a flat black powder coat so they were touched up before installation. etrailer is normally good about knowing their products but I had to find the manufacturer my self to get answers on how to touch these up after the poor shipping method damaged them because I didn't have time to get a return processed. seems all very inconvenient, Not a bad product, not bad service just ultra aggravating, will keep this in mind when shopping with etrailer in the future. 825182

Ask the Experts about this Taskmaster Trailer Tires and Wheels

  • Is There a Trailer Wheel Available with Bolt Pattern of 8 on 170 mm?
    The Dark Matter Steel Modular Trailer Wheel - 16" x 6" - 8 on 6-1/2 - Matte Black ESR Finish # 660865M1LDMX is not available with the 8x 170 bolt pattern. We have some wheels for 8 on 275mm but nothing other than that size and the 8 on 6-1/2 inches for the 8 lug hubs. We don't carry anything that is 8 on 6.69291 inches as that is not a standard trailer size. I recommend considering changing your hubs for compatibility with standard trailer tires and wheels.
