Recommended 2200lb Axle That Uses 3500lb Hubs and Bearings


Hi! Just wondering if your dexter axle #T20BTR-EZ-7258 will work with any of the 3500 lb hubs? Interested in running 235/75r15 all terrain tires and just want to make sure I can use a beefier bearing!

I may have another option for you, but the Dexter Trailer Idler Axle Beam with EZ-Lube Spindles - 72" Long - 2,200 lbs # T20BTR-EZ-7258 you were looking at uses inner and outer bearing # L44649 which is used for 2000lb hubs like the Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2,000-lb E-Z Lube Axles - 5 on 4-1/2 # 8-258-5UC1-EZ.

If you would like to use 3500lb hubs I recommend the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - Spindle w/Brake Flange - Regular Tires - 2,200 lbs # ASR1THDS01 which has the same 2200lb rating, but uses the # L68149 and # L44649 which will allow you to use the larger 3500lb hubs you are wanting such as the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 3,500-lb E-Z Lube Axles - 5 on 4-1/2 - Galvanized # AKIHUB-545-35-G-EZ-K.

I included videos of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.
