So I'm building a trailer for when I go camping and offroading, and I need offset rims for my trailer, as the rims for my trailer right now don't have enough offset the tire rubs against the frame when its flexing. I'm using a 95 XJ Dana 35 as the trailer axle, so I need something with the same bolt pattern but larger offset that will fit 31" tires.

Anyone know of any vehicles that have these? or how much it would be to order a pair in?

I had the same problem w/ my trailer and I just used wheel spacers, cheaper and easier.

Dana 35 as a trailer axle???....it's gonna break for sure.[f]

I'll drag the damn thing out of the bush if it breaks, I've got an 8ton pintle

Yeah thats what I'm thinking. Maybe swap out the studs with longer ones, and make my own spacers at work. I've made them before. [cheers]

the bolt on ones at the bottom you can get from lordco for around $50 AND YOU CAN GET THEM FOR THE SAME BOLT PATTERN. caps surry

I've seen pics of people not using hub centric spacers when they should have where the bolts sheared off! Not something you want when going down the highway! Don't try to save a couple bucks by getting the wrong kind of spacers.

Hub Centric spider trax XJ spacers (note the lip at the centre to help support the weight of the vehicle):

Wheel centric spacers (no lip)

I think 70's dodge 1/2 tons, and any older dodge 5 bolt car, all use the same bolt pattern. Pretty easy to find a set of 2 rims with a different offset.
