Jeep Wheel Compatibility with Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System


Can I get a pair of Axle-less units to fit a 2016 Jeep wheel?


Expert Reply:

Jeep wheels have the 5 on 5 inch bolt pattern and we do have hubs that fit the Axle-Less Systems and your Jeep wheels. It is recommended to use trailer wheels with trailer hubs because of the zero offset and tire design, but people have been using Jeep wheels especially for off-road trailers for years so we know they can work.

We only have a couple compatibles option for that size hub. You will want the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - 4" Lift Spindle w/Flange - Off-Road Tires - 2.2K # ASR1THDS03 or the # ASR1THDS02 without the 4 inch lift.

You can pair these with the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly for 3,500-lb E-Z Lube Axles - 10" Diameter - 5 on 5 inch bolt pattern # 84556UC3-EZ and brake assemblies # AKEBRK-35-SA. Alternatively if you do not want trailer brakes, you can use the Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 3,500-lb E-Z Lube Axles - 5 on 5 # 84550UC1-EZ which are also a confirmed fit for these axle-less assemblies. Don't let the weight capacities throw you...they will work with the 2.2K spindles and your max capacity for each axle will be 2,200 lbs. You can use these assemblies in tandem axle applications if desired.

What about 5-110mm wheels, like off the cherokee trailhawk...does timbren support those? if not i guess wheel adapter from 5x127 to 5x110 would work right?

All of the hubs that we carry are designed for trailer wheels because we don't recommend using vehicle tires for a trailer application (although we are aware that LOT of people like to overland with their Jeep and use the same tires for their trailer). Because of this we don't have any kind of adapter but if you know of one that has been proven safe to use then it's not like we can stop you from using it.
