How to Determine Correct Hubs for Trailer


What do I gada have 2 change hubs on a trailer house 2 change it 2 3/4 tune wheels and tires the rims are off a 1979 Ford 3/4 ton van

In order to determine what hubs you need to fit the spindles of your trailer house you first need to know the weight rating of your axle, and also what bearings your current hub has. You will need to take apart your current hub assembly and look at the bearings themselves; wipe away the grease and you should be able to see the part number stamped directly on them. If you are unable to find them, you need to use Digital Caliper # 301-17068 and measure your spindle to the thousandths of an inch where the bearings and grease seal ride. You can use the photo I've attached to see exactly where you need to measure.

Additionally, you need to know your hub's wheel bolt pattern; if you do not know what it is I have added a help article which details how you can find it. If you get back to me with this information I'd be happy to try and help you find the correct hub because you do not want to use wheels for a van on a trailer house.
