I'm updating my Deutz Ultima with the 3rd updated front end. This gives you front spindles that are built for tapered bearings with a nut on the end instead of a snap ring. Since these deutz / simplicity wheels seem pretty rare what other tractor wheels fit? Any trailer hubs fit this 1" short shaft?

I need wheels or hubs to put the bearings in. The old style deutz wheels used std. roller bearings that will not fit the new style spindles. That's why I was asking if a different model or brand front wheel uses tapered bearings and fits the latest style deutz spindle. Sometimes my post are hard to understand so ill simplify it.
Updated front spindles to taper roller bearing now my front wheels do not fit.
Need new front wheels that use taper roller bearings and fit the shorter shaft.
Deutz / Sunstar front wheels that use taper bearings are very hard to find.
Any other model - brand tractor use taper roller bearings that will fit this spindle?
Is there a 1" trailer hub that will fit the short spindle?

Well decided its cheap to just order trailer hubs and wheels. For $70 bucks I get all new parts delivered to my door from Home Depot. I will have to machine the lip the bearing race sits on for the short axles but that's easy.

The hubs are std. 1" trailer hubs home depot internet #205715226 $21.60 a piece, they are complete bearings,seal,and dust cap. The wheels I ordered are #205708384 $13.10 a piece. Free shipping so my total was $73.56. Now these wheels are 7" wide and require a 1/4 wheel spacer. It was a bit of an oversight on my end the plan was to buy wider tires but it seems they don't make them. I got 6.5s to fit but an 8" would look better. I machined the race the outer bearing sits on down .400 this is because the deutz spindles are shorter than a trailer axle. I have heard that there is a short hub I have no idea if it would be bolt on and I also couldn't find one. For those that don't know about the last years of the sunstar / ultima they tried to fix some of the front end week points. Since I have a loader that weighs more than the tractor and lift 1000 + pounds I wanted some of these updates. The upgrade from a snap ring on the end of the axle to a threaded nut is huge. I never popped one off but sometimes I put such a side load on my tractor the tire is deformed off the rim and I'm running on the rim, I worried about loosing a wheel. Tapered roller bearings again much stronger for side loads then roller bearings. And they eliminated the steering arm double key way with lock bolts that always loosens up, went with a taper.
