    Default 416 wheels

    Anyone know what off the shelf wheels will fit on an m416 trailer? Looking to set up a spare.

    Yep They are 5 on 5 1/2 lug pattern, just like the old CJ's, Fords and Dodges.

    The factory Dodge/Ford wheels won't fit, becuase the center hole is to small on them, but aftermarket wheels and stock CJ wheels will fit.

    The lug nuts are different on the M416 also, the wheels are 'hub centric', and there is no bevel on the lugnuts.

    Easy fix though, just pick up a set of 7/16" Acorn style lug nuts, and they will work on the aftermarket wheels.

    I have these on mine (stock axle, just did a spring over on it)



    Nice thing when towing with my CJ, is I can use the CJ spare on the trailer

    A lot of guys convert the axle to run whatever lug pattern the tow rig has.

    Any From '46 to '86, the CJ series used 5 on 5 1/2" lug pattern, and have a big enough center hole.

    The M416 center hole is slightly smaller than the CJ. (ie: a CJ wheel will fit the trailer, but a M416 wheel won't fit the front hub of a CJ)

    Also, the trailer wheels have a deep back space, and a 'wagon' style wheel, will stick out past the fender some. Be OK for a spare I would think.

    I made some 'fender extensions' for mine, to cover the tires.


    Very easy, as the fenders bolt on.

    Every mod I did to my trailer, was with the idea in mind of returning it back to original, should I ever get a 'Flat Fender' Jeep.

    Well, now I have a '46 and a '47 CJ2A's, so that might just happen!

    Not too concerned with the fender width while using the spare. Other option is to get a spare 416/151 wheel and mount a tubed tire for the spare. Guy had one on ebay for 25 plus 25 shipping.
