Availability of Trailer Hub to Fit Older Short Spindle on Boat Trailer  


I have a boat trailer with weird hub sizes. It has a 1inch spindle diameter but the spindle measures 2 7/8inch in length. My hub measures 3 3/8 from flange to flange. It currently has a 4 lug on 3.75 circle. Im trying to convert to a 4 on 4 circle. Any suggestions?


Expert Reply:

If you have an older trailer with the short spindles then unfortunately we don't have any hubs that will fit. I've gone out to our warehouse and measured a handful of hubs in the past but none of them have a shorter length/height.

The only option to use current hubs is to either cut off your spindle and replace it with something like part # TRU94FR so that the CE Smith Trailer Hub Assembly # CE13110 can be used, or purchase new axles entirely.
