Recommended Hub for Trailer With 3 Inch Spindle


I have an old trailer that i believe is a 2k axle with hubs in the rims of tires !not sure what year it is. I ordered hubs but they are to big. Need to fit a 3inch long shaft So my question is do you make one that will fit ?

Unfortunately we do not carry the kind of hub you are describing that is integrated into the rim. That being said, we do have one possible hub option for your trailer, the Dexter Axle UFP Idler Hub - 5 on 4-1/2" - E-Coated - 2,100-lbs # DA54FR. This hub is designed for use on older style trailer idler axles with short spindles. It has a hub depth of 3" and it is designed for 2,100 lb trailer axles.

You would need to make sure the bearings match up with what you currently have. It uses a # L44649 inner and outer bearing and # RG06-020 seal, both of which are sold separately. Should this fit, you would also need new wheels to fit on the hubs. If you let me know what tire size you have I would be happy to help you choose the right wheels.
