Trillium 4500 Rims

I found a used set of Rims 14" 5 on 4.5, but not exactly sure if they will work? Also what size Lug Nut would I need??

Just looking for some help before diving the 3hr round trip.

Cheers
Ryan

The only problem I found was that the studs on my hubs were too short. So I had to replace them. I bought lug nuts to match those studs.

I really didn't find this out until I mounted the wheels to my Trillium.

I installed wheels from a Ford Ranger, which is a popular swap for the Trillium. Of course they were not trailer wheels.

Are these rims made for trailers?. Most trailer rims are made with a zero offset, so if these are different will it be a problem on your trailer.

The possible offset difference was what I was thinking could be an issue as well! Had not thought of the Studs being too short..

I replaced the wheels and tires on my T4500 because they were very old and rusted and leaking, but used the original bolts that go into the brake drums. I used TR 175/80 X 13" Carlisle tires on white painted wheels I believe from Princess Auto. They fit perfectly and leave 3" travel room in the wheel well. I suggest that you try to stay with the original off-set and wheel/tire dimension or you may have problems.

Hello Ryan,
Are they a set of four?
If they work I will buy the other two!

I passed on the Rims, just thinking they won't fit my application and probably best to keep it as close to stock OEM as possible.

Cheers, thanks for the info and advice
