Trailer Build - Question About Wheels and Hubs
Well I picked up a trailer that was made form the tub of a CJ. The project of refinishing it will begin this morning. I already have two new JK wheels and tires for it but already have an issue.
The hole in the center of the JK wheels is too small for the center of the trailer axle hub to fit through.
Any simple solution to this? From what I can tell by looking online all the trailer hubs have the large center section that appears to require a wheel with a large center opening. To keep the weight down, I really don't want to bolt a jeep axle under this thing, plus it already has a trailer axle under it.
I think I may go to a trailer supply store in Knoxville today and just tell them I need the parts to put "these tires and wheels" on "this trailer" and see what they suggest.
Here's the trailer ready for a makeover, and the new JK ready to pull it.
