I'm looking for JK Big Boy (.510"OD/~.470" ID) or Big Daddy (.600" OD/~.560"ID) Plastic Hubs - 3/32" or 1/8" axle.

 

It doesn't matter if there is rubber on the hubs or not as I am going to remove any existing rubber and reload them but they can't have stripped set screws.

 

Let me know what you have via PM (prefer lots of 8 or more pairs) and let me know what you want for them and/or I'll make you an offer.  Thanks!!

Pablo:

Thanks for checking.

 

You can buy them new on the JK website Jay.

Dennis:

Sure I know that, and I've bought quite a few hubs and donuts from the JK website.  However I figured that there's got to be a lot of used tires/wheels out there that most people are just throwing into a box never to be seen or used again since most guys don't reload their worn out tires.  I'm looking to buy some of those a lot cheaper than buying directly off of the JK website.  Seems to me to be a win-win for me and the seller.

They retail for 3.95 a pair.

Isn't that worth not having to strip off the rubber, and not worrying they will strip when you go to true, or use them, later?

Or do you plan to make fronts out of them?

John,

I get that Jay has time on his hands.

 

My point was, with Jay's background when he did work,  after mounting some top-secret, Martian fairy dust, impregnated rubber, that he smuggled out of work, it would suck having the $1.25, 2nd hand rims, strip. LOL
