Wheel Recommendation for Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # A12WS545


Ive got stock 2011 Jeep Wrangler wheels 5 bolt pattern Im looking slap on my trailer but hoping this product will accommodate them? Are they compatible? Thanks!!!

After doing some research on the 2011 Jeep Wrangler, it appears the bolt pattern of the OEM wheels is 5 on 5 inches. If that is the case, they will not be compatible with the hubs that come with the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System, # A12WS545, that you referenced in your question. The hubs and spindles included are designed for 5 on 4-1/2 bolt patterns. If you are unsure of your wheel's bolt pattern, I have included a helpful article that explains how to measure this.

I do have a solution for you, however we do not currently offer a Timbren Axle-Less system that includes 5 on 5 inch hubs.

I instead recommend using the Timbren Axle-Less System # ASR1THDS02. This system is similar to the system you were looking at but it has a weight capacity of 2,200 lbs and does not come with any hubs, so you can add compatible 5 on 5 inch hubs like # AKHD-550-35-K to accommodate your Jeep Wrangler wheels. There are no 5 on 5 inch hubs available for our axle-less systems rated lower than 2,200 lbs.

Another big factor to consider when using Jeep Wheels on a trailer is the available space the kit will give from the hub face to the trailer frame. You will want to check the backspacing of your tires and wheels to make sure the Timbren Kit you choose will provide enough clearance for your tires. The backspacing is the distance from the surface of the wheel that mounts to the hub to the inside wall of the tire. The backspacing clearance on the Timbren # ASR1THDS02 is 8-1/2 inches. I have provided an image with this dimension listed so you can get a better idea of this measurement.

I have included a video demonstration of the Timbren Axle-Less System for your review.
