This is a Stainless Steel 8 lug idler hub that is great for boat trailers. It is a solid stainless steel hub that will not rust away like all of the others. This 8 lug idler trailer hub is great for trailers either not needing drum brakes, or wanting to use slip on 8 Bolt rotors for disc brakes. It was designed by KODIAK for use with their stainless braking systems, but can be used as a standard idler as well. Also works great when used with aluminum wheels as they will not interact with the aluminum as galvanized hubs do.
If you have ever struggled with painted steel or galvanized hubs in the past on your boat trailer, you know what saltwater can do. The constant wearing on the hubs surface causes rust build up, which over time can actually seize your wheel and your hub together. With the saltwater boater in mind, Kodiak has made this hub to prevent this issue from ever happening again. This is a Stainless Steel 8 Lug trailer hub for standard 6-7,000 lb capacity trailer axles. This is a Kodiak Brand product manufactured for the purpose of optimizing the lifespan of your trailers hub and wheel bearings.
