Ultra-Tow High Speed Hub - 4 on 4in., 1250-Lb. Capacity, Single
I bought an old trailer, and it was sitting unused long enough that when I took the hubs apart to repack the bearings, they were full of crud. I got two of these assemblies shipped to me, cleaned off the spindles, put them on, and proceeded to drive 7,000 miles on them with no issues whatsoever. The only reason I'm taking one star away is that they were packed horribly, so both plastic enclosures were broken when I got them (This would not matter for most products, but these are pre-greased, so that meant they could have been exposed to dirt, though thankfully they weren't.) And also the dust caps I got with them would not fit at all, so I had to use the ones from the old hubs, after cleaning them. If they improved their packing, and shipped dust covers that fit, this would be BEYOND a 5 star product.

Easier than I ever imagined
I purchased a pair of these hub to put on an old trailer I sanded and repainted. Having never installed anything like this before, I was very apprehensive. However, the job was extremely simple. I replaced both hub within an hour and 15 minutes. The price was really cheap compared to other retailers in my area. I've used the trailer for 500 mile trips and 10 mile trips without any issues whatsoever. I also purchased some bearing buddies with I would highly recommend.

Trailer Replacement Hub
I purchased a pair of these:
Ultra-Tow High Speed Hubs - 4 on 4in., 1250-Lb. Capacity (Single), to replace the ones on an old welding trailer.
These Hubs came with everything needed to do the job. Hub, Studs, Lugs, Bearings already packed in grease, Seal, Cotter Pin, and Cap.
I paired these Hubs with a set of:
4-Hole High Speed Spoked Rim Design Trailer Tire Assembly — 480-12 tire, Model# DM412C-4C-I, to replace the mismatched set that was already on the trailer.
Usually I would state that things aren't made like they used to be. But, I'm here to tell you now, these Hubs paired with the Rims & Tires did a great job curing the issues we had with the "older components". Replacement only took thirty five minutes to replace both sides.
We were continually having to tighten the lugs on the older Hubs because on a 10 mile trip they would come loose.
We actually ruined the older wheels because on a 20 mile trip they became so loose, we wallered out the Lug Holes on the old Rims.
After replacing those components with these Hubs and Wheels, our issues are over.
If you really want to accent your replacement Hubs, then I suggest using a pair of:
Ultra-Tow High-Performance Bearing Protectors — Pair, Fit 1.98in. Hubs, Stainless Steel, Grease Level Indicators, Model# 5712940.
To keep your new Hubs in optimum operating order.

High speed hub repolacements
These work excellent and helped make an older trailer like new again. I would recomment these hubs to anyone who needs one.
