Can A Trailer With Wheel Lugs Be Converted To Use Wheel Studs?


I have a trailer with both left and right hand threads and was wondering if I could change them to studs they are electric brake drums without buying new drums

Since you're wanting to use wheel studs on your trailer that has wheel lugs, the only way you're going to be able to use studs, is to replace your hubs that already have wheel studs mounted in them like the:

- Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 3,500-lb Axles - 6 on 5-1/2 # AKIHUB-655-35-K for an idler hub,

or the,

- Easy Grease Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly for 3.5K Axles # AKHD-655-35-EZ-K for a hub drum.

Both of these options will fit a 3,500lbs axle, with #84 spindles, and has a 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern.

If you have a different sized axle just let me know and we can figure something out.
