Hub/Drums, Brakes, Wheels and Tires for ASR35HDS02 Axle-Less Suspension System on Teardrop Trailer


I am building a tear style camper and am building the trailer frame as well. I am looking at the Timbren Suspension part# ASR35HDS02 and am looking for some guidance as far as brakes, wheels and tires go. Is that something you could help me figure out? Thank you

I'd be happy to make some recommendations for you.

The Timbren # ASR35HDS02 Axle-Less Suspension would be a good choice for the teardrop-style trailer you're building. Mechanically speaking, this a much simpler way to go versus using a typical beam-type axle and leaf springs or a torsion axle. The spindles used are compatible with a 12 inch hub/drum that uses a 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern which is ideal for the off-road trailer tires that the system is designed to use.

For the compatible hub/drums, I'd recommend # AKHD-655-6-EZ-K along with the # AKEBRK-6R right hand and # AKEBRK-6L left hand brake assembly. You'll need a 14-1/2 or 15 inch wheel with a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern to stay compatible with the hubs. For white spoke wheel/off road tire combo, I'd recommend the
# WST94FR Westlake ST235/75-15. If you'd prefer something a little more upscale in appearance, I'd recommend the # WST34FR which is the same 235/75-15 tire mounted on an aluminum wheel.
