Taskmaster Trailer Tires and Wheels - TA79RR

  • Wheel Only
  • 12 Inch
  • 5 on 4-1/2 Inch
  • Steel Wheels - Powder Coat
  • Taskmaster

This 12" x 4" steel trailer wheel has a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. 3-Step powder coat finish provides rust resistance and improved torque retention keeps wheel secure when mounted on your axle. Valve stem is included.


Features:

  • Steel wheel with modular design is sturdy and corrosion resistant
  • 3-Step finishing process includes zinc phosphate bath, e-coat primer, and silver powder coat on outboard side
    • Inboard side is lightly e-coated to reduce friction and provide rust resistance with less flaking
  • Improved torque retention (ITR) technology helps to keep wheel securely in place on your trailer
    • Uncoated stud holes are beveled to offer better clamp force retention
  • Valve stem is included
  • Meets SAE J1204 standards


Specs:

  • Rim dimensions: 12" diameter x 4" wide
  • Bolt pattern: 5 on 4-1/2"
  • Wheel bolt size: 1/2"-20
  • Capacity: 1,250 lbs
  • Offset: 0
  • Pilot diameter: 2.95"
  • 2-Year limited warranty


Corrosion-Resistant Finish

The steel wheel goes through a 3-step finishing process that makes it both attractive and corrosion resistant. The wheel is first submerged in a zinc phosphate bath to ensure good paint adhesion. It is then e-coated with an acrylic primer base and the outboard side is finished with baked-on DuPont powder paint. The light e-coat on the inboard side of the wheel reduces friction between the wheel and your hub and eliminates the flaking that can occur with a heavily applied paint finish.


Improved Torque Retention Technology

Beveled Stud Holes Front and Back

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"

Review from a similar Steel Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


The only problem with the order was that the fifth wheel was packed with one of the two packs without extra packing. This caused metal to metal contact. These three wheels had burrs from that and the paint was scratched up. Due to a scheduled trip I had to use them. It could have been a five star rating had there been more care packaging them.

Review from a similar Steel Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


The wheel in itself is a great wheel for the price. however unbeknownst to me once these arrived i took them straight to the tire shop (in the box) with the new G rated 14ply trailer tires to have them mounted. tire shop advised that once they opened the boxes, several wheels were bent around the rim. although it looked ugly luckily, the tires mounted okay. i had to buy some chrome rings to cover the ugly bends and dents (so more money) and contacted etrailer only to be told "oh sorry to hear about that. what i should have done was sent them back but they were already mounted and i would be charged again for that. didnt get any credit or discount offer from etrailer, they just seemed to not care. i've always purchased my trailer parts from etrailer because they've always been good to me, but i guess good thing must come to an end.

Review from a similar Steel Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


If you want to use the standard trailer center cap that snaps on to the lug nuts don't buy this wheel. I had those caps already on my trailer and needed to replace 2 of the 4 wheels and was shocked and extremely disappointed when the center caps would not fit.

Review from a similar Steel Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I'm quite impressed with the quality of this product. It fits my trailer perfectly, and looks great as well. The shipping was great as well. I think it was supposed to take longer, but because I purchased it when I did it got here in just a couple of days. I'm very happy with this product, and definitely recommend it to anyone looking or needing this size rim.

I damaged a wheel on my trailer. This was ordered to replace it. The wheel arrived and is exactly the same as the others. This is a quality wheel and would recommend it.

Always a great experience working with etrailer. Very knowledgeable, great service, super fast shipping, great product selection and a feeling that you worked with a company that earned your business and you want to go back to again-what else could you want?

Very good quality built wheel, good finish and workmanship. Fast delivery. Comes in a well protected easy to carry box. Highly recommend this wheel. Wish it came with an all metal valve stem, had to cut the rubber/metal valve stem off and install a quality all metal valve stem into it.

Review from a similar Steel Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I ordered the exact same wheel that I ordered a few months ago "Taskmaster Steel Modular Trailer Wheel - 15" x 5" Rim - 5 on 5 - Silver" The new wheels came in a different color. When I called, they told me that they cannot help it that the company discontinued the old Silver color and that this is the new Silver color. I believe that they should have changed the description to something different instead of trying to make it like it is the exact same wheel.


Comments
I apologize for the inconvenience. Item # F2519155021 is no longer available. It is a bit different in color and the weight rating is different also.

I had initially purchased scratched rims to save a few dollars. When they went to ship them, they couldn't be located. etailer then honored their original price for damaged rims and applied it to new ones to complete my order. This alone will bring me back for years to come as I maintain a large fleet. Thank you!

Really enjoy your website very well done !
In Lincoln Nebraska we have a Camping World and Leach RV a family owned & Operated company in fact I worked for them for 18 years. Instead of paying their inflated prices I choose to shop with etrailer. Just hope that the wheel that I ordered makes it here soon as we have a out of town race coming up and I need a spare. If you wish to have your company name on the sides of two different race cars just let me know. We race in Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and Colorado.

Review from a similar Steel Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Product is great, packaging could be better. Wheels arrived with scuffs and scrapes due to busting through boxes. Wheels had no protection on them from rolling around in a box that was 3x their size. If this was going on something other than a dump trailer that gets beaten up anyway, I would have complained more.

I greatly appreciated the on time and fast deliver. The one rim was perfect no issues, but the other rim is bent with scratches on it. The box it was delivered in was really beat up and opening the box I expected to see a bent rim and it was.

Replaced a rim after a slight mishap with a loading ramp that launched off a utility trailer ahead of me on the interstate. The rim is an exact match with a great finish. Pricing is very competitive and shipping is fast. Etrailer is my go-to every time.

  • 12x4 Inch Trailer Wheels with 5 on 4-1/2 Inch Bolt Pattern
    We do have many 12x4 inch wheels with the 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern. The center pilot hole you referenced is and interesting question because trailer wheels are not centered on the hub so the size of that hole isn't as important as the bolt pattern that helps center the wheel on the hub. We have no pilot holes that are 2.75 or 2.8 inches in diameter but we do have the -Taskmaster Steel Modular Trailer Wheel - Silver # TA79RR with pilot 2.95 inches I've linked the page to your other...

    I was able to do a little research and determine your 2007 Palomino Pony 2100 does have the 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern. I've linked the page to all the 5.30-12 combinations we offer with that bolt pattern to assist. My recommendation is the Taskmaster 5.30R12 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range C # TT53012C and the Taskmaster Steel Modular Trailer Wheel - 12" x 4" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 - Silver # TA79RR.

  • Recommended 5.30-12 Wheel/Tire with 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern for Trailer
    I have some great 5.30-12 wheel/tire options with 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern for you to choose from. I like the Taskmaster 5.30-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12" Silver Mod Wheel - 5 on 4-1/2 - Load Range C # TA26RR. However, I recommend going with a radial ply option as these will run cooler on the highway therefore last longer. This would require you to purchase the tire and wheel separately and then have them mounted at a local shop upon arrival. For the tire, I recommend the Taskmaster...

  • Will 5.30R12 Tires Be a Good Replacement for Original 5.30-12 Tires
    The # TT53012C 5.30R12 tires you'd looked at are just about a 1/4 inch narrower and about 1/3 of an inch smaller in diameter than your existing 5.30-12 tires. The # TT53012C would work perfectly fine for you, and if your existing tires are bias ply, the 5.30R12 will have a smoother, cooler ride. Excess heat builtup is the main cause of tire failure so keeping the tires as cool as possible is essential. The # TT53012C is a Load Range C tire with a 1050 lb per tire/2100 lb per axle rating....

  • Best Trailer Wheel That Will Fit A 4.80-12 Tire
    It sounds you are looking for a new trailer wheel for your 4.80-12 trailer tires. Your 13 inch is like just a 12 inch wheel, but you may be measuring the overall diameter. Trailer wheel diameter is actually measured from bead seat to bead seat rather than overall, so a 12 inch diameter wheel may look more like a 13 inch diameter wheel. I'm guessing your wheel bolt pattern is actually 5 on 4-1/2 because 5 on 4.25 is not a common trailer wheel bolt pattern. I've attached a help article on...
