Recommended Spindles, Hubs, Wheels and tires for 1200 lb Piece of Agricultural Equipment


Needing, 2 each, 15 wheels and tires. 2 each, round shank spindles with hubs complete with bearings dust caps and what ever else goes with. This is off road ag use, 10 mph possibly twice annually for lifting a piece of 1200# equipment to relocate in field. Can you send me something to look at? Thanks


Expert Reply:

If a 2000 lb capacity per pair of spindles would work for you, I'd go with the # TRU94FR spindle along with the # AKIHUB-545-2-LFEZ-1K complete hub which includes bearings, races, the grease seal, the dust cap and lug nuts. The hubs are even pre-greased. The hubs are sold individually.

For a compatible wheel/tire combo, use # TA53VR. This is a 205/75-15 bias-ply tire mounted on a white spoke 15 inch wheel with a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern.

If you're looking for something with a higher capacity, like 3500 lbs, go with the # TRU64FR spindle, the # AKIHUB-550-35-K pre greased hub which also includes everything mentioned above and the # AM3S640DX bias-ply wheel/tire combo which has a higher capacity to match that of the spindles and hub.

The # AM32238B wheel/tire combo you'd looked at would work as well, but since you'll be at low speed and not on the highway, a radial tire really wouldn't be necessary.

I've linked to the product description pages for each product mentioned above, where you can see current pricing.
