Recommended Trailer Hub Assemblies to Replace Wheels with Integrated Hubs


Hi, I recently picked up a trailer that runs with an integrated hub system. I was wondering if its possible to replace the integrated hubs with something external without having to replace the entire axle? Its to haul a snowmobile if that matters, so nothing huge.

Thanks for the picture. It looks like you have a spindle welded onto a frame and you just need the hub assembly. If this is like most small snowmobile trailers, then you most likely have a 1 inch straight spindle. If this is the case, I recommend the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2,000-lb Axles - 8" to 12" Wheels - 5 on 4-1/2 # AKIHUB-545-2-1K. This would allow you to use standard wheels like the Kenda Karrier S-Trail ST145/R12 Radial Tire w/ 12" Galvanized Spoke Wheel - 5 on 4-1/2 - LR D # AM31202. We have many combinations available for this bolt pattern in different sizes, so I've linked the page to assist.

Let me know if you have further questions.
