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"

Excellent product. Have used them on 3 trailers. Every time I buy a used trailer, I completely rebuild the hubs, bearings and brakes.

I don’t trust other people to keep boat axels, up to my standards. We travel long distances with our boat trailers.

Never had a failure.

Thank You etrailer!


Excellent experience all the way around! Fast shipping. Simple installation. Great instructions and videos. Reasonable prices. The best part though is the customer service. I ended up speaking to William B a couple times and he guided me thought ordering exactly the right thing. He had me confirm various measurements on my trailer to ensure I had the correct parts. Actually he helped me discover that the parts I was removing were incorrect so if we had of replaced like for like I would have had problems. Getting this right up front made the installation and final quality what it should be. Thank you eTrailer and thank you William!


Perfect fit, good quality at reasonable choice. If I need future trailer items, eTrailer will be my go-to.



Continues to work well with no problems or concerns.


I bought these hubs to replace the 30+ year old originals on the 6000 lb axle under my late fathers homemade 4x8 trailer. The original hubs couldn't have modern wheels mounted to them so doing this allowed me to mount modern 225/15r75 tires and wheels as well as have a spare. Install was quick and easy, the fit of every part was perfect. Service from etrailer was excellent, couldn't have been better.


Excellent technical support. Excellent order support - emailed and suggested an alternative when a part was not in stock. FAST delivery.

I had never used etrailer before but was VERY impressed and highly recommend! 5 stars all the way!!!


I searched for what seemed like forever to find a fix for my mobile home trailer axles. I bought a homemade trailer and was needing new tires, they were and odd size 14.5... and I needed new bearings too. The axles were 5200 lb axles. The wheels had a very bad wobble and I felt like I was going to spend a lot money to make a temporary fix. There was so much conflicting information on these axles and compatibility of replacement parts. I bought these hubs and hoped for the best. They fit perfectly! I'm very pleased. I ordered them last night and they arrived this afternoon! Overnight shipping?! Also the costumer service was amazing!! I asked so many questions and felt like i was talking to a friend i've known my whole life.


Received 2 dexter hubs and replaced my mobile home hubs with them in about an hour I used Toyota rims from a 1999 trunda fits great did use longer nuts becouse the rims had counter sunk holes


Items came quickly once in stock. I asked for them separately but would have lost the free shipping...good looking out! Went from old Christmas tree farm trailer to camp hauler. The updated hubs and rims were the last piece. Great customer service!


Following a minor shipping hiccup, James at responded quickly and professionally to get my new hubs to me in a timely manner. Things may not always go as planned with shipments, but I know I can count on the crew at etrailer to make it right.
Thanks James and George!!


Shipping time was good. Perfect fit. Repaced mobile home hubs with these. Make sure you have the right size inner and outer bearings.


A great fit, and easy install. Got me out of a tight bind. We can get back on the road tomorrow. eTrailer always comes through for me.


Best thing I've ne for the trailer


Perfect to replace the Mobile hubs on my 40 yr. old homemade trailer and put on 15" trailer wheels and tires. I will send pictures when finished. Thanks

Fred C.


Everything worked perfectly. I wanted a conversion kit like this for over 20 years. Glad I found Thanks


This seems to be a good quality hub. I haven't gotten the opportunity to install as circumstances have conspired against me so far but I'm sure it will work perfectly.

The real bright spot is that there was a minor problem with my order and Rebecca and George were very quick to respond. They got everything fixed with absolutely no hassle! The level of customer service has proven to me that the staff at are willing to do everything possible to find the right solution for the customer. I will definitely be shopping with again!!



These idler hubs are great! Very happy with them. I have used the trailer several times and there haven’t been any issues. Finally no more squeaking and squealing from bad bearings and hubs.


I have a utility trailer that I have
had for over 25 years. It had a mobile home axle on it with Dayton style hubs and 14.5. inch rims and tires. I wanted to change over to a more traditional hubs and wheels. The help from Sam G was great. I gave him the part number of outside and inside bearings and he found me the hub that fit my spindle. The delivery was fast. One of the bearings came bent but replacement was not an issue. The description of the hub only showed it was for 16" rims but Sam found a 15" rim that worked. - Taskmaster Steel Modular Trailer Wheel - 15" x 6" Rim - 6 on 5-1/2 - Black Pictures sent to Sam in email.


I really can't rate this item because it has been used only one time for moving my trailer approximately 5 miles.


I bought these hub assemblies to replace the ones that came with the boat trailer. Since they were installed I live 50 miles south of Chicago. The trailer has been to Okeechobee Fl. 2 times, also Chetek Wisconsin 3 times. When traveling ,every time I stop for eats or fuel I feel the hubs. The hubs are always just a few degrees above ambient.
PS I also installed S.S. bearing buddy's, from E Trailer.


Made an old axle new!


Product looks good, and well made.
to convert a trailer house axle however didn't fit my application. Knew I would need to make bearing sleeves but when arrived I found my spindle wasn't long enough. So had to order spindles to match.

Also was planning on using rims off a 2006 chevy Silverado however they won't work because of the center hole needs to be larger. Older Chevy rims made for 4WD should work. Center hole should be around 4-4.5".

For future reference, measure length of your spindles as well as bearing and seal diameters.

A mention of spindle length needed as well as the center diameter of the hub would be a good things to add to description.

Great people to work with. Very friendly and knowledgeable. In shipping a bearing and cap was destroyed. They took care of it right away. No pictures, no explanation needed.


Fit perfectly on my trailer house axles. My buddy and I swapped them out with ease. I already recommended the same type to two other friends with the same type of axles. David S. & Mark S. I'm ordering wheels and tires next. Thanks for offering a superior product.


I have home built trailer with a mobile home axle on it. Getting tires for was getting harder to find and they were unable to balance them. I got replacement hubs, bearings, wheels and tire from etrailer. They arrived in 3 days. An hour after they arrived I had them instaled. The seals didn't match but the old seals were in good shape so I used them. The dust covers did not fit so I used the old ones there. I think it is just very hard to get everything to match up on those axles. I am very happy with the results.
Rose at etrailer was very helpful on my initial call too.
I have since placed another order for hubs, wheels and tires for an other trailer I am repairing.
Thank you Rose for your help.


Worked perfect. Great price fast shipping and quality products


This is a on going project on a utility trailer that I have had for over 25 years that has a mobile home axle on it changing over to a more traditional hub and wheel, the help that I got from etrailers was great, delivery was fast and the product was out standing. Thank you for everything and pictures will follow this spring as the trailer get built.:)


Quality Dexter product! These are to replace a brand new set of hubs installed by a trailer shop on my boat trailer. They installed cheap, Chinese made hubs and bearings which lasted just less than 1200 miles before one side completely failed. I installed both of these Dexter hubs and bearings last night and discovered the other side was probably very close behind.
Comparing the two brands, it was obvious the Dexter products were far superior in machining, fit, finish and overall construction.


The dexter hub kit was perfect for my needs. The kit included pre-installed bearing races for both inner and outer bearings. I was able to install both sides of the axle in an hours time. My trailer now rides like when it was new. Thanks a million for the on time delivery and quality products! :)

  • Fit of Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 6,000 lb E-Z Lube Axles
    Your photos did not come through but I think I can still answer your question. The hubs you get must be compatible with your spindle, and that means you will need to look at your hub bearings; wipe away the grease and you should be able to see the part number stamped directly on them. If you are unable to find them, you need to use a digital caliper and measure your spindle to the thousandths of an inch where the bearings and grease seal ride. You can use the photo I've attached to see...

  • Is the Distance Between Bearings In a Hub an Important Measurement When Finding a Replacement Hub
    First, thanks for the kind words. We work hard to provide the best online experience in the industry. If the axle you have is a MOBILE home axle and not a motor home axle, then you will have to replace the axle. Mobile home axles are designed for one time use only and should not be reused. As a result of this one time use, there are very few replacement parts available. Now if it is an axle from a motor home then it is most likely a trailer axle and you will not need to replace it. If...

  • How to Pick Out Replacement Hubs for a 6k Dexter Axle
    You can switch your hub and drums to a higher rated setup, its just a matter of finding the correct hub to fit the spindle on your trailer. The only way to do that is to pull your current hubs, pull out both of the bearings and get the numbers stamped on them so we can determine what spindles you have to get a hub that will match. Check out the picture I attached that shows where these numbers are. You also need to determine what bolt pattern you have on your current wheels so that your...

  • Measuring Trailer Axles To Find The Correct Replacement Axle for an Old HL Trailer
    I have linked 2 articles below which will guide you through how to identify what size axle you will need to replace your current axle on your old trailer. There are several measurements you will need to take to find the axle width and weight capacities.

  • How to Identify Correct Replacement Bearings for Dexter Hub on Recreational Vehicle
    The Dexter hub part number prefix 8-201 could refer to many items and includes many possible weight capacities. So the best way to go is to pull one hub, remove the bearings and find their stamped part numbers. If you happen to know the axle's weight rating that will allow you to narrow things down if you refer to the linked article. This article lists the most common bearing sets used based on axle weight rating. Still, the best and most fool-proof way to go is to pull one hub and get...

  • Why is the Spindle Nut Not Included with the Hub Assembly
    You can reuse the same spindle nut and cotter pin with the Dexter Hub Assembly, # 8-213-5UC1. The reason hub assemblies do not typically come with new spindle nuts is because there are different types of spindles that require different types of spindle nuts and cotter pins or washers. For example, if you have an EZ lube spindle (see photo) with a grease fitting on the end, you will not want a cotter pin going through the spindle. In place of a cotter pin, you would use a castle nut and...

  • Trailer Hub Assembly that Uses 25580 Inner and LM67048 Outer Bearings
    The only trailer hub assemblies we have that uses an 25580 inner bearing and an LM67048 outer bearing are one's rated for 5,200-lb and 6,000-lb axles which have a 6 on 5-1/2" lug pattern (part # 8-213-5UC1). None of our trailer hubs with a 5 on 4-1/2" lug pattern are compatible with 25580 and LM67048 bearings. We do not carry a 14-1/2" diameter wheel that will work with your 14-1/2" diameter x 8" wide tires and 6 on 5-1/2" lug pattern. I have attached a review video of the hub for you.

  • Using 6000 lb Hubs on 7000 lb Axle
    As long as bearings on the hub you choose are compatible with the existing spindle on your axle, you can indeed change to hubs that have the desired wheel bolt pattern. The first step would be to confirm the dimensions of your spindles using an accurate measuring device like a digital caliper. Using a ruler would not provide a measurement that is precise enough. I have provided a diagram that will will show you where to take the measurements. The # 8-213-5UC1 hub would be compatible with...

  • Which Wheels Fit On Dexter Trailer Hub Assembly, # 8-213-5UC1
    When fitting wheels to a Dexter Trailer Hub Assembly, # 8-213-5UC1, you would need to measure the wheels you are trying to use. You would measure the bolt pattern, the center hole diameter, and the stud size. To measure the bolt circle on a 6 lug application you would measure from the center of one bolt hole to the center of the bolt hole directly across from it. So on the Dexter hub you referenced that measurement would have to be 5.5 inches. I have included a link to our FAQ article...

  • Will Upgrading 6 Lug Hubs to 8 Lug Hubs Increase Trailer Capacity
    Simply upgrading to a higher capacity hub won't necessarily increase the capacity of your trailer. You will still be limited to the capacity of the lowest rated component, whether it be the hub, the axle, the wheels or tires or even the structure of the trailer itself. In order to swap out your hubs to a different bolt pattern, you'll need to choose hubs that are compatible with your existing spindles.

  • Is Removing Hub From Trailer Axle Easy
    The part # 8-213-5UC1-EZ is an idler hub, but since it is not intended for brakes it does not have a drum attached to it that it can can be separated from. If instead you are asking how hard it is to remove the hub from the axle, the answer is it's pretty easy. It's pretty much removing a cotter pin, unscrewing the castle nut, and then sliding the hub off. I attached an install video that shows how to easily install and remove a trailer hub as well.
