Hi, if the Never Lube hubs can't handle about a .030" offset [sheet metal mounting plate] then they must be junk. What is the tolerance of a wheel, not to mention that of a tire? Remember when we were young and everyone put "Chromed Reversed Wheels" on their cars? I do, but I don't remember anyone having wheel bearing or axle problems because of it.

Hi, it seems as though the original poster was looking for something cheaper/less expensive than Centramatics; Disc brakes goes the other way in cost. Note disc brake rotors need to be balanced too. I know that trailer drums aren't balanced, but not sure about trailer rotors.
