Why Does HD Version of Timbren Axle-Less System Use Standard Bearings


How is this HD version if the bearing sizes are the same as the regular tire version? Also, the use of an EZ lube spindle is a offroad version should allow the use of 3500# hubs/brakes with the upsized bearings and a solid spindle. Please explain? We are not running trailer tires on off road trailers - but instead are using 31-35inch tires that are the same as the jeep/truck pulling it.


Expert Reply:

The bearings are the same as they are related to the capacity of the axle and the the size of spindle that is called for based on that. The heavy duty portion of the setup is more related to the clearance that allow for more ground clearance and tire width clearance.

Not sure how to defend the EZ lube setup as being a weakness as we have not see that to be the case at all, but almost all of our trailering customers are using the trailers on the highway and the application may be less stressful.

The heavy duty Timbren kit you may be referring to is the part # ASR35HDS02 which is a 3,500 lb Timbren setup with a 4 inch lift and wider clearance for off-road tires.
