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 Review of Taskmaster Tires and Wheels - Wheel Only - 5514WS1DMX

Today, we're going to take a look at the Dark Matter 14" by 5-1/2" matte black ESR steel directional trailer wheel with the five on 4-1/2" bolt pattern. Now this is a nice sturdy steel trailer wheel, has the directional design to it. It is corrosion resistant. This is great for boat trailers and other marine applications. The ESR technology they use is extreme salt resistance. This'll help weather the elements better than galvanized finishes.

It's a matte black finish that's sprayed on over an e-coat primer front and back of the wheel. Gives you excellent corrosion resistance. Has a salt spray rating of more than 700 hours, and the nice thing about it is this finish is applied through an environmentally friendly technique as opposed to the galvanize finishes, which is really not good for the environment. This does use ITR technology, which is improved torque retention. Helps to keep your wheel securely in place on your trailer.They do use the uncoated stud holes, which are beveled to give you better clamp force retention.

If you notice they do include the rubber valve stem. Now this wheel does meet the SAE J1204 standards. A few measurements we're going to give you on this. The diameter of the wheel. Now the diameter on the wheel is always measured inside to inside.

And the reason they do that when you mount a tire on here, the tire bead will seat right here, so what you're measuring is where the bead seat is to the other bead seat. So the diameter on this one, you can see if we put a tape measure on it, it's going to be right at 14". The width is the same way. It's inside to inside or bead seat to bead seat. And same way that'll be 5-1/2" in the width.Now the bolt pattern on this wheel is a five on 4-1/2" bolt pattern right here.

And if you want to measure the bolt pattern on a wheel like this, that's an odd number of lugs, in this case five. All you have to do is pick any hole. Let's say this one and then measure from that hole to either one of these holes across from it. But when you measure it's from the center of the starting hole to the furthest edge. So on this one, if we measured it it'd be 4-1/2". So five on 4-1/2" bolt pattern. This wheel does use the wheel lug size of a 1/2" by 20. Weight capacity on this wheel is 1,870 pounds and the last measurement is going to be the pilot hole diameter, which is the large hole here in the center. The wheel goes over the hub on your trailer. Diameter of that opening is 3.19". But that should do it for the review on the dark matter, 14" by 5-1/2" matte black ESR steel directional trailer wheel with the five on 4-1/2" bolt pattern.

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

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

  • How to Determine if Trailer Wheel Will Fit Trailer
    Thank you for that info; the Dark Matter Steel Directional Trailer Wheel # 5514WS1DMX has a backspacing of just 3 inches and since we know that you have 6-1/4 inches from the hub face to the trailer frame (which I got by subtracting 48-1/2 from 61 and dividing that by two in order to take both sides of the trailer into account) they will work for you! Just make sure there isn't anything in between the hub face and frame that might shorten that distance. Keep in mind you are going to...

  • ST215/75R14 Tire and Black Wheel Recommendations for a Boat Trailer
    For a tire I recommend the Goodyear Endurance ST215/75R14 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range D # 724865519 because Goodyear combines the quality of their passenger car tires with the important sidewall strength that is required for a trailer to give us the best trailer tire on the market.

  • Is the Black PVD Wheel Coating More Like Chrome or Paint
    The Taskmaster Steel Modular Trailer Wheels with Black PVD Finish # 460545MBPVD are definitely not a flat black paint and I suppose that you could compare them to a black chrome color since they do reflect light very well. I would definitely say they're closer to a black chrome than just black paint. It also will not chip or peel in the same way that a chrome covered wheel would, so the PVD coating is more durable. If you're looking for something that are more of a flat black color you...
