Would Timbren Axle Less System for Wide Tires Allow for Wider Tires, How Much Clearance is Provided

Question:

Is this the correct axle system to get for 10inch trailer tires since they are wider than similar diameter 12inch tires? With my current axle, I had to install spacers to get enough clearance when converting from the 12inch tire it came with to the 10inch ones I have now and I would like to eliminate the spacers when I upgrade the axle. The trailer they would get installed on is a 4X8foot utility trailer very similar to what Harbor Freight sells, to give you an idea what Im looking to mount these on. Im aware that Ill need a 2inch square tube bar to connect the two pieces due to the structure design of the frame as well as new, compatible hubs.

I attached a diagram that has all of the relevant dimensions of the # ASR2KHDS03 that you referenced. From the hub face to the trailer frame this setup will give you 8-1/2 inches of clearance for your trailer wheels and tires. (see dimension K on picture)
