Hello,

 

I was wondering if anyone had mounted trailer hubs on the front spindles of thier tractor.  My front rims and tires are completely wore out and I thought that 4-bolt hubs on the front would make an excellent upgrade.  I was looking at something like:

Any advice or opinions would be appreciated!

 

Thanks,

Brian

Those need to go onto an axle that is threaded to adjust the bearings. What do you have?

I just bought some flanged nylon bushings for mine. I will let you know how they work out. When you say that your rims are worn out, is it just the bushings or are there other problems?
