Hub and Drum, Brakes, and Tire and Wheel Combos for Timbren 7K Axle-Less Suspension


I was planning to put this system on my Avion 28 ft trailer it sits around 4800 lbs dry the 8 hole rims will be more then what I need


Expert Reply:

Since your trailer weighs 4,800 pounds dry, when loaded it will weigh more. But if its final weight when loaded and ready to tow is far enough from the 7,000 pound capacity of the Timbren Axle-Less system # TASR7KS01 it could have a stiff ride.

Other than that there isn't a reason why it could not be used. The recommended hub and drum assembly for this system is # 42866UC3-EZ. And for trailer brakes I recommend # 23-106 for the right and # 23-105 for the left.

I have included a couple of video links on the brakes and one for the hub and drum assembly for you.

For compatible tire and wheel combos I recommend # TA49VR for a white steel wheel.

The lug nuts that come with the hub and drum assembly can be used with the steel wheel but for the aluminum wheel I recommend using # 12CLN because it is easier to get a socket on these when using aluminum wheels.
