Can any body help identify my trailer rims. I have a custom built trailer(6x4) I use as my camp kitcken IE fold down benches lift up sides. I need to replace the tyres due to cracking. Now I have 165/75 sr 13 on13 inch rims with approx 62 mm stud spacings center to center.I believe some earlier holden stud paterns(assuming they are holden) would take 14 inch rims which would suit my ute (Nissan) tyre profile Hight wise. Also the old rims have tubes and some rust has eaten away around where the valve comes out. So a worst case sitituation I would have to replace the alxe and rims and tyres.Some of you old holden guys should know this stuff ! I did but I forgot. Any thunder bolts of brilliance would be appreciated.

G/day Niffty
If your 13inch wheels are 5stud on a circle circumferance of 108mm they will be holden. Early 14inch holden will fit before HQ model HQ onwards are 5 on PCD of 120mm
Ford are 5 / 114.3mm
Hope this helps
Cheers

If you want to fit a stronger wheel then get some Volvo (200/700 series) steel rims they use the same stud pattern and are thicker and stronger than holden wheels. from memory they are also slightly wider so will take a larger tyre.
They are available in 14" and 15" (alloy). Usually cheap at the wreckers too as nobody wants them.
I run 185 LTx 14 (hiace/ute tyres) steel radials on them which are tougher than a lot of 4wd tyres.

Giday Niffty, It has been a while since I bought new hubs or bearings, However last time I did (3 years ago?) it was $20 for a bearing or $30 for a new hub which comes with a new bearing. I now carry spare hubs and bearings. I changed mine from holden to ford 14inch. The reason was that I found out that the ford stud pattern is the same as a Toyota Hilux 4x2 stud pattern, so it should be easy to find a spare just about anywhere

Forgot to mention, there is no worries changing your hubs to suit whatever axle you have, its all in the bearings. I just had a quick look at the web site below. Hubs with bearings. $35.45 and bearings alone between $16 and $21

A couple of years ago I upgraded my box trailer from holden to landcruiser hubs. Just a hub swap over, and put on some 235/75/15 tires on 15x6 rims. Cheap as chips from the wreckers. And landcruiser/patrol/jackaroo 6 stud are the same as my pajero, so the spare for the car now fits the trailer for those shorter trips, or gives me more options for longer runs.
