This pregreased 5 lug Vortex hub by Tie Down Engineering is the premium replacement hub option for 2,000 to 2,200 lb boat trailer axles. The prepacked hub kit is sized to fit straight 1 1/16 inch trailer axle spindles with 1 1/4-inch diameter seal surfaces and contains all the pieces you need to mount to your trailer, from zinc-plated lug nuts to a threaded dust cap. The Vortex hub is specifically designed to require little or no maintenance over the lifetime of the unit; it is intended to need no maintenance at all for the first 6 years of its life. The pregreased assembly is lubricated with high-quality lithium complex Lucas Oil Marine Grease
, and sealed with a triple lipped spring-loaded grease seal to keep the unit free from water or intrusive materials. Tie Down's Galv-X finish is also optimized for saltwater and freshwater marine usage, as it is proven to resist rust and corrosion for greater longevity.
The top-line performance of Tie Down's Vortex hubs make it an excellent replacement option for any light trailer with frequent use, but it is especially well suited for small boat and jet ski trailers. This 2,200 lb hub kit takes the quality and reliability of the hubs that Tie Down uses on their torsion axles and puts it in a package that you can put on any 2,200 lb trailer axle, so you can enjoy the same great performance and warranty on your trailer's sprung axles. The hub contains a greaseable zerk fitting in the back of the hub assembly, which you would use to pump in fresh Lucas Marine Grease if necessary (Lucas Marine Grease must be used to maintain the factory warranty). Tie Down's excellent Vortex Hub warranty covers this item, good for 6 years or 100,000 miles. This is the best hub kit on the market if you need a maintenance-free replacement for your small boat or jet ski trailer's 5 lug 2,200 lb axle.
