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


Maxion Wheels Vesper Improved Torque Retention

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 Review of Maxion Wheels Trailer Tires and Wheels - Wheel Only - MX54FR

Jeff: Hello, everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're going to take a look at this Vesper 15 inch by five inch silver modular steel trailer wheel with the five on four and a half inch bolt pattern. Now this is a steel wheel. It has the modular design. And by that we mean it has the round holes all the way around the wheel.

It's very sturdy and rust resistant. They do use a nice silver acrylic enamel finish to resist chipping and other damage that are then the powder coat finishes. This does go through a three step finishing process, which will first include a zinc phosphate pretreatment, then an eco primer, and then the silver acrylic enamel finish over the wheel.This does give excellent corrosion resistance, has a salt spray rating of more than 1000 hours. Now, this wheel does use the ITR technology, which stands for improved torque retention. It is designed to help keep your wheel securely in place on your trailer.

It uses the uncoated stud holes that are beveled to give you better clamp force retention. If you notice they do include the valve stem. This wheel does meet the SAE-J 1204 standards. A few specs on this, the wheel, if we measure the diameter, it's always going to be measured inside the inside. You don't want to measure edge to edge.

It's always bead seat to bead seat. So if we take our tape measure and if we go bead seat to bead seat, you can see there's your 15 inch diameter. The width will be the same way. It's bead seat to bead seat or inside to inside. It's going to be right at five inches wide.

Now, the bolt pattern on this wheel is a five on four and a half inch bolt pattern.And if you want to measure that on a wheel, that's an odd number of lugs. In this case, it's five. You just pick any hole. Let's say this one and you'll measure across to either one of these holes. When you measure it, it's from the center of the starting hole to the furthest edge of whichever hole you measured to. On this one, it'll measure four and a half inches. So it's a five lug, four and a half inch bolt pattern. It does use a wheel lug size of a half inch by 20. Weight capacity on this wheel is 2,160 pounds. And the last measurement is the pilot hole diameter. This is the large hole. It goes over the hub on your trailer. Diameter of this opening is 3.19 inches.But that should do it for the review on this Vesper, 15 inch by five inch silver mod steel trailer wheel with the five on four and a half inch bolt pattern.

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.

The wheel came as stated. The paint looks decent but there is overspray on the backside. Not a big deal for a work trailer, but could be a turn off for someone with a fancier car hauler.

Wheels are great for what I needed. The shipping container was not great- wheels arrived with some scratches.

No one has this dually wheel!!! Except, of course E-Trailer! I couldn't be happier with how fast E-Trailer shipped my purchase. I placed an order on a Sunday afternoon via the website and immediately I could see the process of it being pulled, packed, shipped and labeled. I paid for two-day shipping and actually received it a day earlier than anticipated. E-Trailer has earned themselves a new customer!! Thanks for your efficiency and very detailed updates on the process of the item ordered and its shipping.

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