Will the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly AKIHUB-550-35-K Work With Vehicle Wheels


Im trying to determine if the wheels I have will fit on this hub. I could not find a center bore requirement for the hub or a technical drawing to compare between the wheels geometry. Can you help with this? The wheel is not a trailer wheel, it has a center bore of ~71mm but closes in to ~50mm about 2cm from the mating surface...

The Trailer Idler Hub Assembly part # AKIHUB-550-35-K is designed to be used with lug piloted trailer wheels with a 5 on 5" bolt pattern like the Dexstar Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel part # AM20428. In regards to compatibility with vehicle wheels; this is usually not possible because of the bolt pattern not aligning, there being an offset, and some being hub-centric. Therefore, I cannot recommend this.
