    Default trialer dual wheels

    I though there was a trailer forum here. Well I want to make a mulch spreader with dual wheels so I can alter the width for narrow rows and at times make it more stable and spread weight for soft ground.
    I need to be able to remove outer wheels. The wheels need to be closer together so I can't use a diff. Does any one know of dual wheels that can bolt onto a hub? Preferably not large truck wheels.
    I was thinking I could alter hubs to fit wheels as it is not for high speed.

    Wheels from an old Mazda T series truck might be regarded as small but I don't know their size. I seem to remember that some of the Mazda vans might have had dual wheels as well but I might be wrong there.

    Chris is right about the Mazda vans having dual wheels, also the small Bedford van and the traytop derivative, you'll also find that the Fiat Ducato I think is is, has them, usually seen under some motorhomes.
    You'll also find them under some of the Ford Vans , Dual rear wheel cab chassis or the jumbo body version.
    Have attached a link below for identification,

    The trailer section forum is in the Metalwork Forum.
    Hope this helps,

    Do you know of a hub that would take any of these wheels?

    They would be fully floating hubs. Being for off road, slow speed use innovation with a welder, some tube or solid bar for an axle or perhaps use the whole diff tube without the centre would be expected.

    I have been offered J series Bedford hubs and they can take 16" duals just have to find rims and stud nuts and nuts.
