Neverlube Hubs and 16" Wheels

If you have the neverlube hubs on your trailer AND you installed 16" wheels and tires, please tell us what wheels you used.

Tredit T02,same as everybody else, why?

As far as I know, the only difference in the Nev-R-lube, the Ez-lube and the standard hub is the machining INTERNAL to the hub. The dimensions for wheel fitment are identical.

http://www.tredittire.com/T02-P52.aspx is the wheel I used.

Well, I went searching today for some wheels and tires at Discount tire for my upcoming purchase, and found the wheels the guys have been using down here are actually ones designed for trucks, 16X7". Problem is all the truck wheels have offset and the ones my friends are using have 16mm of negative offset.

So then, I called Dexter and asked about using an offset wheel with the neverlub hubs, and they told me not to do it, and if I did, they would fail, and they would not warranty them.

So then, started looking for 16X7 trailer wheels, because Airstream uses 15X7" aluminum wheels, and learned no one makes 16X7 aluminum trailer wheels.

Your Tredits are 16X6. Why must we go down to 6" wheels when we go to 16"?

Are you sure about the 7"? I'm about 99.9% sure my old wheels were 15X6. I sold them, so I can't look to be 100%.

The steel wheels Airstream uses are 15X6", aluminum are 15X7". Or at least on my '01 25ft, and now my '04 28'.
