What Size Hub will Work with the 215/60-8 Trailer Tire with 8 Inch Galvanized Wheel Load Range D


what size hub works with this rim? i am designing a trailes and need to know what axel is best


Expert Reply:

The proper size hub for the 215/60-8 bias trailer tire and wheel, # AM3H325, is going to depend on the weight capacity of the trailer you are designing. This wheel and tire combination is capable of 1,165 lbs at 70 psi, so each axle in your design would need to be rated for 2,330 lbs or less.

Most likely if this is the proper capacity for your design you will be using a 2,000 lb axle and the Trailer Hub Assembly, # 34822545BX, would be the proper choice if the spindle on the axle you will be installing the hub on requires # L44643 inner/outer bearings.

You could also use the Dexter Trailer Hub, # 8-259-5UC1, if your axle spindles require L44649 inner/outer bearings.
