Will 16" steel wheels made for the m119 howitzer fit on my M105 trailer? Link to the wheels below.
Yes, if the backspace is 6" or less.


Edit to add: Make sure you have this style of hub on your axle: 2016-07-09 16.49.52.jpg

If you had this other style: 20200507_203920.jpg, then the pilot hole of those wheels in question will have to be enlarged.

If you mean those Isuzu NPR wheels like shown at the bottom of that iink/page, the pilot hole is correct (Ø 6.457") but the problem is their backspace being way over 6" (probably more like 8-9" since they are designed for dual rear wheel configuration).
Any 16"-wheel with more than 6 inches of backspace will make the rim hit the drum before the center disc contacts the hub.

Thank you. I have a lot to learn about this thing! I read on another post that 19.5 budd wheels will fit. Does that hold true with this type of hub my trailer has?
