Diameter of the Hub Bore

What is the Hub Bore?

The hub bore is the diameter of the hole in the centre of the wheel.

This does vary in different wheels and the hub bore can be reduced to suit your application with the addition of bearings, collars / bushes and/or tubes. Please have a look at our accessories page for more information on reducing the hub bore diameter.

The Hub Length

What is the hub length?

This measurement is the width of the hole running through the centre of the wheel. Handy Tip!  Push a pencil through the hole in the middle of the wheel and measure the length of the distance through the wheel!
Getting the right hub length is important because if you get a wheel with the hub bore too small the wheel will wobble on the axle. If the hub length is too large it will not fit onto the axle.
