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"

  • Replacement Dexter Idler Trailer Hub With 8-248 and T20 Stamped on Back Of Hub
    I can tell by the 8-248 and t20 stamped on your hub you will either need the Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 3,500-lb Axles # 84545BX or Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 3,500-lb E-Z Lube Axles # DX98XR. The idler hub for E-Z lube axles includes a grease cap with rubber insert so that you can pump grease into the spindle for additional lubrication. Your spindle must have the grease zerk on the end of the spindle to use that option.

  • Option to Upgrade Axle to 3,500 lb Axle-Less System & Hub With 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern
    While there's an option to consider, the shortest 3,500 lb axle is 89 inches hub face to hub face, so the only option for upgrading to a 3,500 lb axle is using an axle-less system: - Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - Straight Spindle Only - 3,500 lbs # ASR3500S05 The Timbren are simply bolted or welded so you do not have to worry about finding an axle that meets any specific measurements. Also, leaf springs are also not needed because they have progressive springs built in...

  • Does the etrailer Trailer Axle Beam with Easy Grease Spindles # e83GR Have Brake Flanges?
    The etrailer Trailer Axle Beam with Easy Grease Spindles # e83GR does have brake flanges which will allow you to add brakes at any time. It does not come with a hub so you can choose a set of idler hubs like the Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # DX98XR which has the more common 5 on 4-1/2" lug pattern, or go ahead and install the brakes and hubs now. If you need help selecting the correct hub and brake assemblies please let me know what wheel lug pattern you want to have and brake...

  • Replacement Axle-Less Trailer Suspension Square Axle 49.5 Hub Face and 38.5 Spring Center
    The Timbren Heavy-Duty Axle-Less Trailer Suspension # ASR2KHDS01 will be the only thing we carry to replace your square axle with the dimensions you have. This will replace your axle and leaf springs with a progressive spring and independent suspension. It has a weight rating of 2,000lbs and straight spindles. It does use larger spindles that will accept the Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # DX98XR and has the 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern.

  • Replacement Option for Torsion Axles
    I do have an option for you, but we do not carry torsion axles so I would not be able to help you with torsion axle parts. That being said, you can switch to an axle-less set-up using the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR3500S05. To determine which exact model Timbren Axle-Less you will need you will need to determine the axle rating of the axle on your trailer. Since you said your axle tag is worn off you can do this by using the GVWR of the trailer to give you a good...

  • Dexter Replacement 3,500LB Axle With 89 Hub Face, 70 Spring Center and 4 Drop Spindle
    The Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with 4" Drop E-Z Lube Spindles # 8327812 is going to be the closest to the Dexter axle you described. This axle has a 89" hub face to hub face measurement with a 4" drop spindle and underslung design. The axle is rated for 3,500lbs and the spring seats on the axle measure 74". You can weld on some new Spring Seats # TRSS238 to the 70" measurement that you are needing. I do recommend new U-Bolts # APUBR-1 as your current bolts will likely have corrosion. Two...

  • Option to Replace 2,000 lb Trailer Axle With 62 Inch Hub Face to Hub Face Measurement
    We have an option to replace your axle, but not with a standard through-axle as there isn't one with a 62 inch hub face to hub face measurement. There are 60 and 72 inch lengths, but those would be too short and long, respectively. What you can do instead is use the Timbren Axle-Less Suspension System, which are simply bolted or welded so you do not have to worry about finding an axle that meets any specific measurements. For a 2,000 lb axle there is a standard option as well as one with...

  • Option For Replacement 2,200 lb Axle System on Boat Trailer
    While we have an option for your suspension system, there aren't standard axles of that size, but what will work for you is an axle-less system from Timbren, and there is even an option for one with a lift if you want a little more height: - Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR1THDS01 or - Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - 4" Lift Spindle # TASR1THDS04 Both of these are 2,200 lb capacity systems that have a brake flange if your boat trailer has brakes.

  • Is There a 2,000 lb Timbren Axle-Less Suspension System With Rise
    There is an option for one of these systems with a rise, but there isn't an axle riser kit for the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - 2,000 lbs # ASR2000S01. Reason for that is since these aren't a thru-axle and mount right to the frame, there isn't a way to lift that system. What you can use though, is a 2,000 lb kit that has a built-in 4 inch rise: - Timbren Heavy-Duty Axle-Less Trailer Suspension - 4" Lift Spindle - 2,000 lbs # ASR2KHDS04 This will give your trailer the...

  • Replacing Dexter 8-248 Trailer Hub Fitment
    Yes, the Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # DX98XR is the correct kit assuming you do have EZ lube spindles. This kit comes preinstalled with the races and lug studs. New bearings, seal, nut, grease cap and lug nuts are included. If you do not have EZ Lube spindles than Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # 84545BX is correct for you. It is identical to the other kit except for this is for non EZ lube axles. You can add Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors # BB1980A-SS to make your bearings...

  • Recommended Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System For Damaged 3,500 LB Trailer Torsion Axle
    I recommend sticking with a 3500lb rated system like the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR3500S05. By using the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # TASR5200S03 you will not actually increase the capacity of your trailer since it was built and designed for 3,500lbs. The heavier springs will lead to a stiffer ride for the cargo on the trailer as well and you will notice a lot more bounce when empty. The Timbren # ASR3500S05 will have a straight spindle and will...

  • Replacement 3,500LB Axle For a Boat Trailer With a V-Bend Axle To Clear Boat Hull
    The Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR3500S04 is the only replacement axle system we have that will work with your boat trailer having the bent axle to clear the V-hull on your boat trailer. Based on your images it appears you have a 3,500lb axle with Idler Hubs # DX98XR. The Timbren will require you to remove your current leaf springs as they bolt directly to the frame. If you do not feel this is a viable option for your trailer we do have the #84 E-Z Lube Spindle w/ Brake...

  • What Timbren Axle-Less System For 5,000 lb Tandem-Axle Trailer
    Yes, for your tandem axle trailer you should indeed go heavier than a pair of the 1,200 lb Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR1200S04. The 1,200 lbs is the capacity of the entire system, so two of the # ASR1200S04 for your tandem axle trailer would be a total capacity of 2,400 lbs. There are a couple of options, depending on the total weight of the trailer, since you mentioned it is in design. - 2,200 lb Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR1THDS01 - 3,500...

  • Options to Upgrade 3,500 lb Axle on Trailer
    Thanks for the photos, and while we do have an option for you, there aren't axles with the dimensions you have, you can still upgrade your trailer with what is called an axle-less system from Timbren. These are simply bolted or welded so you do not have to worry about finding an axle that meets any specific measurements, and give you a better ride compared to a traditional through-axle. The reason for that is the Timbrens aren't connected by an axle beam so they work independently; so...

  • Trailer Axle Option For M416 Trailer With & Without Electric Brakes
    The only option for an axle for your M416 trailer is what is called an axle-less system, as there aren't axles in that particular length. You can get these with either idler hubs (for without electric brakes) or hub and drums if you choose to use electric brakes. They are available in either a straight spindle or with a 4 inch lift if you want to add some extra height: - Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - 2,000 lbs # ASR2000S02 - Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension - 4" Lift...

  • Replacing 5 on 5 Lug Pattern Idler Hub With a 5 on 4-1/2 Lug Pattern Idler Hub on Utility Trailer
    I recommend replacing your hub as if you used an adapter it would move the wheels and tires out from the hub which will often cause issues with fenders and tire clearances on a trailer. Your 5 on 5" hub like # AKIHUB-550-35-K are generally only used on 3,500lb trailer axles. There are 2 hub types available with the 5 on 4-1/2" lug pattern and the same bearing and grease seal sizes of the 5 on 5" hub.

  • Solution for a Custom Built Trailer to Provide Hubs and Brakes for Wheels
    From the information you have provided, it sounds like your calculations are all correct. The main issues would come from the fact that in order to have the dimensions you are wanting there is no off the shelf axle available to accomplish that. I do have an alternate solution for you though. You can use the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR3500S06. This is an axle-less solution that will provide you with the 3,500 lb., 4" lift EZ lube style you are wanting. Since you are...

    For the #84 E-Z Lube Spindle # TRU87FR, I recommend the Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # DX98XR. This hub will include all the bearing races, bearings, lug nuts, grease seal, spindle nut, retaining washer, and dust cap with removable rubber insert for easy access to fill the hub from the grease zerk on the spindle. If you are using this for a boat trailer or area where it will be subject to a lot of salt exposure the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-545-35-G-EZ-K is galvanized for...

  • How To Determine What Parts are Needed To Add Hydraulic Surge Brakes to a Tow Dolly
    First you will need to determine the spindle size on your 2002 U-Haul tow dolly to determine the correct Hub/Drum # DX98XR. Then you will need to see if there is a Brake Flange # 4-35 to find the right Brake Kit # T4071600-500. And finally select your Actuator # DM72VR and Brake Line Kit # 15SI-BLKIT. If you can provide me with the dimensions of the spindle(see image) along with bolt hole pattern of any brake flange present I can help you find the correct parts.

    The only axle we have that will allow for your same measurements with a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern in the Timbren Heavy-Duty Axle-Less Trailer Suspension # ASR2KHDS02. This will pair with 2 of the Dexter Trailer Idler Hubs # DX98XR to give you the same bolt pattern. The Timbren has its own built in suspension so you will need to remove your current leaf springs.
