What Hub Has a 5 on 4 1/2 Bolt Pattern That Works with Timbren Axle-Less Systems


Hi, can you tell me if you carry a 5 on 4.5 electric brake hub assembly that will work with the following Timbren axle setup? ASR35HDS02 Im looking to use wheels similar to these with 33inch or 35inch tires. Would this complete setup work? Will the tires clear the trailer frame with this setup? Im looking for this particular 5 on 4.5 so that the wheels match those on my Jeep. My Jeep has a 4.5inch lift. Im not sure if the 4inch Timbren lift is necessary or if I should just go with the standard ones.

If you want the Timbren axle-less system that works with 5 on 4.5 bolt pattern hubs, you can use # ASR1THDS01. This kit is specifically designed for 1-axle and 2-axle trailers that use low-pressure, off-road tires. It has greater distance between hub face and trailer frame to accommodate off road tires.
The Kit you are referencing # ASR35HDS02 works with Dexter 6,000 lbs hub and drum assemblies that come with 5 spoke utility, 6 on 5 1/2 or 8 on 6 1/12 bolt patterns. The hubs and drum assemblies are going to be separate from the Timbren axle-less system.

For hubs and brake assemblies that are confirmed to fit the Timbrens I recommend the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly for 3.5K E-Z Lube Axles ,10" Diameter with 5 on 4-1/2 # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K. The bearings, races, and seals are all prepacked and installed. That makes installing a little easier since the bearings won't have to be packed.

For the brake assemblies I recommend Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies # AKEBRK-35-SA. These have a 4 bolt mounting flange and will work perfectly with the Timbrens.

I don't think it is necessary to have the 4 inch lift on your trailer just because your Jeep is lifted. The tires should clear the frame of the trailer with the Timbrens, but you can measure to see if you have enough room. I have attached a photo showing you how much room from the hub face to the frame you will have.

You can measure from the mounting flange of the wheel (inside) to the edge of the tire (closest to the frame). If it is less than 6 7/8" then it will clear.

You can check out the videos I attached for reference.
