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 - 560655M1DMX Review

Speaker 1: Today we take a look at the 15-inch by six-inch Dark Matter Steel Modular Boat Trailer wheel, with the six on five-and-a-half-inch bolt pattern, in the matte black finish. Now, this is a sturdy boat trailer wheel with the modular design. And when we say modular design, that's the one that has the round holes all the way around the wheel. This one happens to use the matte black finish, which is sprayed on over an eco primer which is very corrosion-resistant. The finish is an ESR finish which stands for extreme salt resistance finish. This will help weather the elements better than galvanized finishes, because when it's 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, the ESR finish is an eco-friendly alternative to galvanized finishes, because the galvanized finish is extremely toxic to the environment.This is a tough environmentally-friendly coating. Won't corrode on contact with salt water. Has the 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.

It's designed to help keep your wheels securely in place on your trailer. They use uncoated stud holes here, and they're beveled to give you better clamp force retention. You notice it does come with the valve stem is included.A few spec on this. We're going to measure the wheel. The diameter, which is always measured inside the inside, or bead seat to bead seat.

So, if we take a tape measure on this, and if we go bead seat to bead seat, you're looking at 15-inch diameter. The width on the wheel again, is bead seat to bead seat or inside to inside. Six inches. So, 15-inch by six-inch wheel. Bolt pattern on this wheel is a six lug.

A six on five-and-a-half-inch bolt pattern. And if you ever want to measure that, all you have to do is pick any one of the holes. On a wheel that's an even number of lugs, in this case six, it's pretty easy. Just pick any hole, let's say this one, and you'll measure from the center of that bolt hole to the center of the hole right across from it.So, if we take our tape measure, and we go center to center, five-and-a-half inches. So, six lug, five-and-a-half-inch bolt pattern. Does use a wheel lug size of a half-inch by 20. Weight capacity on this wheel is 2,830 pounds, and the pilot hole diameter which is this large hole here in the center wheel, goes over the hub on your trailer, diameter of this opening is four point two five inches.But that should do it for the review on the 15-inch by six-inch Dark Matter Steel Modular Boat Trailer wheel, with the six on five-and-a-half-inch bolt pattern, in the matte black finish.

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

These rims were a great upgrade to my travel trailer. I was looking for a flat matte black trailer rim to go with my new tires and Timbren off-road suspension system. A sweet package I have enjoyed much. Great price, great product. 734230

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


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

Ask the Experts about this Taskmaster Trailer Tires and Wheels

  • Black Trailer Wheels to Fit 225/75-15 Size Tires
    To fit an ST225/75-15 tire you want at least a 6 inch wide wheel. When measuring a wheel you measure from bead seat to bead seat where the rubber makes contact with the wheel. If you like the Dark Matter mod wheels like you looked at we carry part # 560655M1DMX which is a modular wheel and part # 560655S1DMX which is an 8 spoke. Both wheels are 6 inches wide and fit the 225/75-15 tires. They're rated for 2,830 pounds and have a 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern. If you have a 5 on 4-1/2...

  • Availability of 15" Trailer Wheel with 5 on 5-1/2" Bolt Pattern
    We actually only have one 15" wheel available with a 5 on 5-1/2" bolt pattern and it's the Taskmaster Steel 8-Spoke # 560555SWA. This is a white powder coat wheel with an 8-spoke design so it's not terribly similar to the style you're looking for. The only way to mount the 15" Dark Matter Wheel # 560655M1DMX (or something similar) to your trailer will be to replace the hub assemblies, if possible, to new units that feature the needed 6 on 5-1/2" bolt pattern.

  • Could Dark Matter Trailer Wheel # 560655M1DMX Handle 110 PSI
    The Dark Matter Trailer Wheel part # 560655M1DMX that you referenced can be used at a 110 psi pressure but you'd need to replace the valve stem with a higher rated option like the part # AM20906.

  • Idler Hub So That I Can Use 5x5.5 Bolt Pattern Jeep Wheels on My Off-Road Trailer
    The lug studs on the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-555-35-K are 1/2" studs, which should match the studs used on your Jeep wheels. From what it sounds like, you're trying to replace the hubs on a trailer to use the wheels from a Jeep? While the studs may match up, the wheel offset is going to potentially cause a problem. You'll need to make sure you have enough space between the hub face and the frame to use the negative offset that vehicle wheels come with. You might be best served...
