5x100mm lug pattern?

Postby jmtk » Mon Mar 06, 2006 3:11 pm

I'd like to use the spare on my tow vehicle (Subaru Impreza) for my teardrop spare. The Impreza has a 5x100mm lug pattern, and web searching I haven't been able to find any axles with that size. Being woefully ignorant about axles, I'd appreciate any ideas you all could offer.

I'm intending to have a frame made by a local welder, not buy a bolt-together.

Thanks,

Jeanette

Hi Jeanette, when I ordered my axle I requested that it have the lug pattern to suit my towing vehicle. I also requested that it have HD bearings. This was all done, with the only extra being charged for the HD bearings. Maybe a phone call to your local manufacturer will clear this up.

Cheers

It seems like it's hard to find trailer axles with metric bolt patterns in the US. I'm not sure if they will custom drill the hubs, I guess asking wouldn't hurt though. Someone mentioned using a wheel adapter in another thread.

Bingo! Thanks for the idea on wheel adapters, AF. This link http://www.adaptitusa.com/index.asp was in an earlier thread and it's got what I need.
