Is the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System Compatible With 20.5x8-10 Tires


I have these 20.5x8.0r10 tires on 5x4.5 wheels and was considering upgrading to a new suspension. Also interested in adding braking hubs/disks if they exist?

It sounds like you would like to replace your axle and suspension with the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR2000S02. Assuming your current axle and leaf springs are rated for 2,000 lbs this would be a great replacement option and will work with your 20.5x8-10 tires.

For a disc brake kit that matches the Timbren bearings you can use the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit - 10" Hub/Rotor - 5 on 4-1/2 - Dacromet - 3,500 lbs # K2HR35D. You will also need hydraulic brake lines # 18SI-BLKIT.

The last thing you will need is a disc brake actuator like the # DX56FR. This works with a 2" ball and fits a 3" x 5" straight tongue. When choosing an actuator you want to make sure that the coupler matches the ball size you want to use and that it is rated for disc brakes.

I have attached some review and installation videos, along with a link to all of our disc brake actuators for you to check out.
