Hi!

 

You can't do this in Maya.

There is something like every nth edge, but this works only for edges.

Not one click solution, and still, you will need Maya Bonus tools to be able doing this, like @mspeer mentioned:

1. Select edges #1 and #3 -> BonusTools>Modeling>SelectEveryNthEdge;

2. Convert selection Ctrl+RMB>ToFaces>ToFaces;

3. Ctrl+Shift deselect upper face ring.

Note.. you can add edge loop to the side faces and select that. And, if you are up for modeling a gear, then there is Create>PolygonPrimitives>Gear.
