Corrosion Resistance for Marine Use

This trailer hub assembly has a zinc coating that resists corrosion, making it ideal for use on your boat or snowmobile trailer. All GAL-DEX hubs undergo a test in which they are sprayed with a 5-percent salt solution to determine corrosion resistance over time. These products are able to withstand 500 hours of constant exposure to the saltwater mist. This 500-hour salt spray rating indicates that a product is not only durable enough to last in freshwater environments, but it can also be used on trailers that come into contact with saltwater


Determining the Bolt Pattern

The first number in the bolt pattern is the number of bolt holes. The second number denotes the diameter, in inches, of the circle on which the bolt holes sit.


Bolt Pattern - Even

On wheels with an even number of bolt holes, measure from the center of one bolt hole to the center of the hole directly across from it. (Example: "8 on 6-1/2" means 8 bolt holes with 6-1/2" from the center of one hole to the center of another on the opposite side.)


Bolt Pattern - Odd

To determine the bolt-circle diameter on wheels with an odd number of bolt holes, measure from the center of any bolt hole to the point halfway between the two bolt holes directly across from the first. (Example: "5 on 4-1/2" means 5 bolt holes with 4-1/2" measured to a point halfway between the opposite bolt holes.)


Bolt Pattern Side

Measuring the distance (D) from the center of one bolt hole on the wheel to the center of a bolt hole right next to it can also help to determine the bolt pattern.

  • If D = 2-5/8", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-1/2"
  • If D = 2-3/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-3/4"
  • If D = 3", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5"
  • If D = 3-1/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5-1/2"

Video Transcript for Dexter Trailer Hubs and Drums - Hub - 8-259-50BTUC1 Review

Today we're going to review part number 8-259-50BTUC1. This is Dexter Trailer Hub Assembly for 2,000 pound axles. Has the 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern, a galvanized finish. Now this galvanized assembly is great for marine use. The hub itself will fit 2,000 pound idler axles. Everything shown here on the table is included: the inner and outer bearings.

The bearing races are included; they're actually pre-installed in the hub already. The grease cap is included, the grease seal, and then five of the 1/2" lug nuts. Now this is a marine-grade trailer hub assembly that fits on idler axles. This trailer hub assembly has a zinc coating that will help resist corrosion, makes it ideal for us on your boat or your snow mobile trailer. This does have a galvdex 00:51 coating, which will undergo a test in which they are sprayed with a 5% salt solution and it helps determine the corrosion resistance over time. These products are able to withstand 500 hours of constant exposure to that salt water mist.

This 500 hour salt spray rating indicates that this product is not only durable enough to last in freshwater environments but it can also be used on trailer that come into contact with saltwater. Again, the application is 2,000 pound axles. Now the hub flange diameter, which if you drew a circle around the outer edge of this, the diameter of that is 5-1/2". Because of that, this will work with wheels 8" to 12" in diameter. The bolt pattern is a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern. The wheel studs are a 1/2" diameter so they do use 1/2" lug nuts.

The weight capacity on one of these is 1,000 pounds, so when you use this with one on the other side of the axle it will get you a 2,000 pound rating for the axle. Again, the bearing are included. They use both the same inner and outer bearing. It's part number L44643. The grease seal's included; it's part number 34823. That should do it for the review on part number 8-259-50BTUC1, the Dexter Trailer Hub Assembly for your 2,000 pound axles, with the 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern.

See what our Experts say about this Dexter Axle Trailer Hubs and Drums

  • rebuilding boat trailer
    If both of the bearings on the existing hub are LM67048 then we will not have a match. This is likely an older hub design or an agricultural hub that is not used much any more. The best solution at this time is to replace the axle which surprisingly isn't as expensive as many people think. I have included a link below to the axles we carry.

  • Spoke Width and Stud to Spoke Distance on Dexter 2K 5 on 4-1/2 Idler Trailer Hub
    I went out to the warehouse to measure trailer hub # 8-259-50BTUC1. The width of the spokes is 1-3/8 inches. And from the outside of the stud to the end of the spoke is 5/16 of an inch.

  • Can The Capacity Of An Axle Be Determined By Looking At The Hubs?
    Though it is sometimes possible to identify an axle's capacity based of the hub, it is not always 100% accurate. Due to this, I tell people to not rely on just this alone. As a quick example, if you look at the Dexter Hub # 8-259-50BTUC1 and # 8-259-50UC1-EZ, they will both use the exact same 8-259 hub. However, the # 8-259-50BTUC1 will use the # L44643 inner and outer bearing and is rated for use on a 2,000 pound axle. The # 8-259-50UC1-EZ will use the # L44649 inner and outer bearing...

  • Replacement Hubs and Bearings for a 1-1/16 spindle
    If you have a straight, 1-1/16 inch spindle, the correct bearing kit may be Bearing Kit item # BK1-150. This kit comes with the inner/outer bearings item # L44649, which has an inner diameter of 1.063 inches, along with a 1.500 inch inner diameter grease seal and item # L44610 inner and outer race. If you grease seal has a 1-3/8 I.D. you will want the Spindle Grease Seal Set for item # L44649 Inner Bearing and 1.980 Bearing Buddy item # BB60005. Another option since you are looking to...
