What are your current hubs, are they braked or un-braked?

The indespension catalogue can often be very helpful in these situations

What pcd is the stud pattern? If its an oddball pcd that will narrow down your search most small trailers are 4" pcd is it a manufactured trailer or home built or realy old? It might be easier to change the wheels while changing the hubs so everything is to the same common standard or you may have similar problems next time. I've had a similar issue before & the hubs were fortunes & it worked out more cost effective to change everything.

How old is the trailer ?

In times gone by it was favourite to use Rover Metro hubs, these have a 56.6mm boss size

I had to repair a trailer last year that had Metro hubs, and surprisingly the parts are still readily available.

Hubs

The trailer is about 20 years old and the wheels are 13 inches. I have not yet checked out the Indispention website, but will in the next few days.

If you have so called 1 inch axels on the trailer you could buy a pair of 4 stud x 4 inch pcd hubs with bearings and grease nipple and then buy a pair of wheels to match. I recently did this and it saved me loads of Hastle and searching for what seemed not to exist, total cost for wheels, hubs and bearings was about £150
