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 - 560655S1DMX Review

Speaker 1: Today we're gonna take a look at the Dark Matter 15" by 6" eight spoke steel trailer wheel with the six on 5-1/2" bolt pattern and the matte black ESR finish. Now this is a sturdy steel trailer wheel. Has the eight spoke design to it. It's very corrosion resistant. This is great for boat, trailers and other marine applications. This wheel does have an ESR finish on it, and that stands for extreme salt resistance.

This will help weather the elements better than galvanized finishes and the matte black finish sprayed on over an e-coat primer. So it gives you excellent corrosion resistance with a salt spray rating of more than 700 hours and the finish is applied through an environmentally friendly technique.It also use the ITR technology which is improved torque retention. It's designed to help your wheel securely in place on your trailer. They use the uncoated stud holes which are beveled to give you better clamp force retention. If you notice the valve stem is included with this wheel.

This wheel does meet the SAE J1204 standards. A few specks on this we're gonna measure is the diameter and the width. Now the diameter always measure bead seat to bead seat. So inside to inside. So if we take our tape measure and you can see if we go inside to inside, there's your 15" diameter.The width on it is the same way.

Bead seat to bead seat. So inside to inside. It's gonna be right at 6". So 15" diameter by 6" wide. Bolt pattern on this is a six on 5-1/2" bolt pattern.

And if you wanna measure that on the wheel It's an even number of lugs, in this case, six. It's pretty simple. All you have to do is pick one of the holes, let's say this one. And measure center of this hole directly across to the center of the hole right across from it.So if we put our ruler on or our tape measure on this, center to center you can see it's right at 5-1/2". So six on 5-1/2" bolt pattern. This wheel does use a wheel lug size of a 1/2" by 20. Weight capacity on the wheel is 2,830 pounds. And the last measurement is gonna be the pilot hole diameter. It's this large hole here in the center of the wheel. Goes over the hub on your trailer. Diameter of that opening is 4.25".But that should do it for the review on the Dark Matter 15" by 6" eight spoke steel trailer wheel with the six on 5-1/2" bolt pattern and the matte black ESR finish.

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

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

  • Can Dark Matter Steel 8-Spoke Wheel # 560655S1DMX Be Used on Travel Trailer
    The Dark Matter Steel 8-Spoke Trailer Wheel # 560655S1DMX that you referenced will absolutely work on a travel trailer. The reason we have it listed as a boat trailer wheel is simply because of its ESR finish that allows it to hold up extremely well to saltwater which just makes it a great option for that application. For a 15 inch 6 lug wheel the 5-1/2 inch spacing is really the only common pattern. If you want to be sure this is what you have on your existing wheels just take a measurement...

  • 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...
