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"

The hub assembly i ordered i specifically requested to fit a 1 1/4 axle,the one I received is for a 1 inch axle and doesn't do much good for my trailer




by:

Product fit perfect. Fast shipping and delivery. Recommend etrailer highly!!!




by:

This is exactly what I needed - easy to install - fits perfectly
and really love the "Pre Greased" feature!




by:

I wish I had taken before and after photos of my trailer. A typical 5x8 utility trailer with the extruded wire mesh deck which I got for a bargain, perfect for my lawn tractor or 4 wheeler. However the 8" wheels did not provide enough ground clearance for the terrain where I intended to use it as a equipment hull trailer to our deer camp, pulled by the 4 wheeler. After finding etrailer.com my problems were solved! I ordered 5 bolt hubs, 5.30 x12" wheels and the economy plastic fenders and fender brackets. While waiting my order I wire wheeled the frame and gave it a fresh coat of paint and WHAL-LA! I have a new looking trailer! The order arrived in record time, securely packaged and great quality! I ordered the pre-packed hubs and didn't have to get into that sticky mess! Everything worked out as planned and was easy-peezy to assemble and install. I'll definitely use etrailer.com in the future.

Very good price, works great on my harbor freight folding trailer I modified last year, it upgrades with my 1720axle and 5lug 530c load tires from the 1195axle with 4lug 480b load tires giving me more weight capacity now to strengthen the trailer tongue . Thank you very much




by:

I looked all over, to include Harbor Frieght where I bought the trailer, and could not find replacement bearings. Etrailer.com had exactly the parts I needed. They fit as advertised and arrived in just 3 days. I will definitely use etrailer.com again and you should too!

Great product. Super easy to install. I recently towed my motorcycle cross country and had no issues at all.

It was very easy to swap out the "old parts for the new". When I did have a question, etrailer.com was there for me..... I highly recommend that anyone in need of trailer repair parts contact etrailer.com!




by:

Received, then installed within an hour. No problems at all during assembly. Grease caps fit nice and tight. Came with an extra set of caps for ez-lube axles, I think. I appreciated the pre-greased condition, just install them and go.




by:

Always quality products at good prices, also hard to find parts in stock. Never any issues with ordering or shipping. Thank you.




by:

This is a convenient way to replace, repair or upgrade. The hubs and bearings appear to be good quality. And having everything preassembled and greased makes the swap clean and easy.

Ordered akihub-542-2-1k hub assemblies for a snow mobile trailer that i am rebuilding hubs arrived quickly and as advertised. Extremely convenient that hubs are already assembled and bearings are greased




by:

Ordered two tires, two Aluminum fenders, and Hubs. etrailer.com is one of the easiest websites to place orders on I have ever used. Extremely well laid out. Fast shipping and product is packaged professionally. Great products, great prices, products are high quality.

Rarely order from any other trailer parts companies. etrailer has just about everything trailer related and no junk! Can't beat this company.




by:

There was a slight misunderstanding with my order, however , much to the credit of my sales rep and the etrailer.com, they went above and beyond to make it right. I was very satisfied and would certainly do business with them again . I would also recommend them to friends.

  • Trailer Hub that Can Fit on 2,000 lb Axle with 5 on 4-1/2 inch Bolt Pattern
    Are you sure the diameter of the spindle is 1.25 inches where both bearings ride? That's not typical for a 2,000 lb axle but if instead the diameter is 1.06 inch then you could use the hub part # AKIHUB-545-2-2K which has the 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern you need as well. If instead the spindle measures .99 instead you'd want the part # AKIHUB-545-2-1K.

  • Trailer Idler Hub for 2,000 Pound Axle and 13 Inch Tires
    There isn't enough surface area on hub # AKIHUB-545-2-1K to safely mount and use a 13 inch wheel. The hub would have to be larger to properly support a 13 inch wheel. For a hub that uses the same bearings, can take a 13 inch wheel, and also has a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern we have # AKIHUB-545-2-LFEZ-1K for EZ Lube axles or # AKIHUB-545-2-LF-1K for regular axles.

  • Replacement Hubs that Can Fit 2,000 lb Axle with 5 Lug Bolt Pattern

Take the hub off of your current axle and measure the diameter of the spindle where the bearings ride. If this dimension is 1 inch then this is the correct fit. If for some reason you get a different dimension let me know and I'll...

  • Finding Correct Trailer Wheels to Match Hubs for a BT8 Spindle
    You're correct that all of the 8 inch rims we carry have a pilot hole that's in the range of 2.8 inches. Not nearly as large as the 3.275 inches you need. The best solution I recommend is replacing the hubs, unfortunately. I recommend part # AKIHUB-545-2-1K for standard spindles or part # AKIHUB-545-2-EZ-1K for EZ Lube spindles. I don't recommend boring out the pilot hole of the rim or grinding down the hub. It will very likely compromise the integrity of either part.

  • Will The AKIHUB-545-2-1K Hub Fit My SnowBear 5x8 Utility Trailer?
    As SnowBear trailers are still being produced, and haven't been around long enough for any of the weird/rare spindle options, you will not need to measure anything else to confirm the fitment of the etrailer.com Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-545-2-1K. As you already verified the bolt spacing and the inner and outer bearing numbers, you are perfectly good to go.

  • Replacement Hub Recommendation for Tracker Boat Trailer with Spindles that Measure 1.05 inch

  • Do Harbor Freight Trailers with 5 Bolt Pattern Use Standard 5 Bolt Pattern
    The experiences we've had with Harbor Freight trailers is that they use standard 5 bolt patterns common on other trailers. The most common being 5 on 4-1/2 inches like what the part # AKIHUB-545-2-1K which fits the common 2,000 lb axle spindle.

  • Trailer Hub for Old Boat Trailer with 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern and a 1 Inch Straight Spindle
    The 2 hubs in question use different bearings and seals. If the spindle is exactly 1 inch in diameter and the diameter where the seal rides is 1.249 inches then use # AKIHUB-545-2-1K. If the spindle diameter is slightly over 1 inch and the diameter where the seal rides is 1.5 inches then use # AKIHUB-545-2-2K. If you still have the old bearings you can check for any numbers stamped into the sides of them and that will determine which hub fits.

  • Solution for Needing Hub for Trailer with Spindles that are 1.25 Inch for Bearing Surface
    I really wish we had a hub that fit your setup, but based on your spindle dimensions we do not have anything that's going to fit as a replacement. Best option is most likely going to be to swap to a new axle so that you can fit a standard wheel/hub on it. You are going to need to measure your current axles in a few places to get the correct one. You will need to measure from hub face to hub face and then from the spring seat centers. You will also need to know what bolt pattern you have...

  • Replacement Idler Hubs for 4 x 7 Tarter Utility Trailer
    A 2000 lb axle uses a straight spindle, with both the inner and outer bearing being the same size. The hubs needed will depend on the number of lugs your current hubs have and which inner/outer wheel bearings are used. I'll give you a run-down on the possibilities below. If you have a 4 lug wheels, and a L44643 inner and outer bearing, you'd use # AKIHUB-440-2-1K for 5 lug wheels, use # AKIHUB-545-2-1K. Both fit wheels from 8 to 12 inches.

    To find the right replacement hub for a trailer you will need the inner and outer bearing numbers stamped into the sides of the bearings or the measurements of the spindle to 3 decimal places. The measurements have to be as accurate as possible so I recommend using digital calipers # PTW80157. I included a picture that shows where to measure.
