Solution for Needing Hub for Trailer with Spindles that are 1.25 Inch for Bearing Surface


I have a boat trailer that has the hub wheel combo. I want to change to a hub and rim. The spindle is straight and takes the same size 1.25 ID LM67048 bearings on both ends and the spindles is 2.875 or 2 7/8 long where the bearings ride. The seal is 1.5 ID, not a big deal, but need a hub to fit. Thank you

I really wish we had a hub that fit your setup, but based on your spindle dimensions we do not have anything that's going to fit as a replacement. Best option is most likely going to be to swap to a new axle so that you can fit a standard wheel/hub on it.

You are going to need to measure your current axles in a few places to get the correct one.

You will need to measure from hub face to hub face and then from the spring seat centers. You will also need to know what bolt pattern you have on your current hubs. I attached a help article on how to determine this as well.

I also attached a link to a page with all of the axles we carry. We don't have an extensive list of sizes so you may have to find a local shop to you who can order in custom axles and have them get you the size you need.
