Idler Hub for 13-Inch Trailer Wheel That Uses L44649 Bearings  


Can I put an 13 inch rim on this hub


Expert Reply:

The Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-545-2-2K you referenced is compatible with wheel diameters from 8-inches up to 12-inches. It is not usable with your 13s.

For a similar idler hub that uses the same bearings (meaning it will fit on the same spindle as the other part) you can use one of the hubs shown on the linked page. All items shown use the same L44649 bearings, work with 13-inch wheels and have the same 5-on-4-1/2-inch wheel bolt pattern as the part you referenced. All of these hubs are rated for used with either 2000- or 2200-lb-rated axles.

The nearest item to the one you reviewed is idler hub part # AKIHUB-545-2-LF-2K.
