    Today my grandpa gave me a pair of wheels. 13" rim with 23" wheel. I was thinking of using these for the front but the problem is that the hub mounting is 5 1/2" deep from the inside of the wheel. In other words i will need a longer trailer stub axles. This is the kit i will buy.

    Unbraked suspension units with cast hubs

    My question is, can i extend (aprox. 2 ") the stub axles using 1" round bar without increasing the chance of failure? i will be using car brake discs and calipers. And also will this cause a problem when mounting the brake calipers? I hope you understand what I am trying to say. (English are not my first language)

    That is a lot of distance to make up,and will certainly make it weaker but will it be too weak ,,,all would depend on how hard you are driving jumping etc i suppose.When you say extend i hope you mean make a new LONGER stub,extend no good. How about longer stub buy an inch and an inch spacer ,or maybe mod the wheel centre,or just try to find wheels with the right offset ,someone here should be able to help.

    How did you go motor shopping ?

    Most shops are now closed for summer vacations.. I was not able to contact the guy for the motors but most probably he will be back next week.. Also a friend suggested me a shop where i will be able to buy brake discs and calipers.. and hopefully wheels with the right offset

    Summer vacations are over so all shops are open I picked up a pair of disk brakes and calipers to use in the front. The guy also gave me a 3 wheels for free!! So now i have a spare one.



    They are off a nissan n14.



    The calipers are hugeeee in contrast with my upright





    Tomorrow i will go shopping for a pair of trailer hubs.. Still have no motor
