Can anyone give me some direction in finding the correct hubs for a stock axle on a 72 Boler American? I have found a set of rims that will look great but of course they are 5 lug.

And while I'm here.....will I have any problems with tire size ST175/80D13 ?

Any help? Thanks!

Depends on your rims --

Trailer rims are lug-centered, automotive rims are hub-centered (as a general rule).

Trailer rims have zero-offset, auto rims might not (bad for bearings).

Trailer rims are made for higher pressures, auto rims might not be (usually marked INSIDE rim).

If you are contemplating spending money on new hubs, get brake hubs instead and eventually put brakes on your egg (presuming the brake flanges are on your axle).

Otherwise, post in the Wanted area for a set of hubs from someone who has upgraded to brakes.

You might have trouble getting them on, and towing with them see my post on tire change.
