Yep the wheel and hub. Assuming its unbraked and standard its a half hour of bumbling through. Or ten of your rushing...

Don't bother with just bearings. Bearings pre installed in hubs are so much simpler....

It's a grease they developed for British Leyland buses that were getting water in the bearings
If you ever need info about oils etc give them a buzz they have a good tech dept.

Just take the hub off and take it to Indespension or similar they will sort you out.

Difficult to tell. Get a price to get them shot-blasted with the tyres off with a view to refurbishing, then you can make a call as to whether to replace.

Hubs are normal 4" PCD jobbies with 1" taper bearings. Should be about 15 each, with bearings etc.

Give the wheels a good clout with a hammer as they tend to rust around the ledge, about an inch in from the lip/bead. If they're solid then give them a clean and a wire brush and a lick of paint and you should be good to go. If they're gone, and need to be replaced, then they're around 35 to 40 for a complete wheel and tyre assembly, from most trailer places.

All the info you'll need to give is the PCD (4" on 4 x 3/8" studs) and the tyre size (which looks like 5.00 / 5.20 x 10), but will be on the side of the tyre.

All the best.

On the inner side of the tryes its all worn down so they could do with changing.

Do you think it would be cost effective to just buy a wheel/tyre set & keep one old wheel/tyre as a spare?
