I believe if you get hubs from a boat trailer and buy bearings to match it might work, good luck.

I used to do this all the time with the old street rods we put together.

You find the hubs you want, measure the ID's and the spindle OD's then go to a bearing house or catalog for the bearings.

With the Chinese bearings available these days, you should be OK with a slow speed tractor and be on the cheap too.

There is an unlimited source of bearings online these days.

I might be able to help cross reference a bearings set up with a hub

can you tell my what the inner bearing specs are inside diameter(diameter goes on spindle) and outside diameter of the bearing that fits near the hub.

same thing for the outer bearing specs inside diameter (diameter goes on spindle) and outside diameter that fits near the hub.

your not going to find a five bolt hub that will fit your spindles. saw the old ones off, couter bore the hole, and weld in trailer spindles. its been done for years.
