Matching Trailer Hubs

Does any one know where I can get trailer hubs to match my f350. It has the 165.1 PCD. This is just a single axel trailer unbraked. The bloke at Martins in Perth is telling me they have to be custom made and I will have to upgrade my axle as well. I don't want to go to all that trouble just to have matching spares.

What's the axle width you currently have, does it match the truck? Do you care if it changes?
I am guessing your current trailer wheels are 5x4.5?

Easiest way to match it is by buying a set of wheel spacers, like this: http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/12...l#post13534914
The other option that may not require too much work/dollars is finding an unbraked trailer axle in a wreckers that uses the 8x6.5 wheel studs (should be reasonably common) and swapping the entire axle out
And the last option is replacing the hubs on your existing axle with 8x6.5 - not sure of purchasing options in Oz, but they can be ordered pretty cheaply from the US.
