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"

Replaced 6 hubs on 3 trailers. All were of good value, saved the customer tons of time by purchasing preassembled hubs, and me a ton of headache and mess too. Good quality, fair price



by:

Never thought I'd be ordering new hubs for my boat trailer but a destroyed a hub heading out on vacation necessitated the purchase. Called etrailer and talked to Josh. Josh was outstanding! He guided me through the measurements needed on my axle so I could get my boat back on the road. Very calm and reassuring throughout our conversations. Although etrailer did not have the axle size I needed in stock, they did have the hubs. Being pre-greased hubs, they were easy to put on the axle. Drove home the next day, with the boat in tow, and no issues arriving home (270 miles later). Outstanding service and solid products ensure I will be contacting etrailer in the future. Thanks etrailer and thanks Josh!



by:

These hubs save time being pre-greased witch means alot for shop production. Shipped on time as always.



by:

After ordering the wrong hub assemblies (my fault) I called customer service to return them and spoke with Brittany W. She walked me through the return process with no issues. The new correct parts were ordered and when I say FAST I mean SUPER FAST SHIPPING!!! It was overnight and I received the correct parts the next day incredible!! Thank You!!

One year later, still happy with my hubs. Great price, easy installation for a first-timer. etrailer has outstanding instructions and support.



by:

Over all it is great but beware using the rubber caps for easy lube axles as they are not water tight.



by:

Great customer service, everything works perfectly



by:

Great customer service !!! The wheel hubs arrived timely and In great condition. They look like quality parts that should hold up a good while.



by:

Would be nice to see the overall length in description but got the correct length



by:

Good service



by:

Products arrived as stated, however when the package as opened, there were 4 of 5 lugnuts, and one was an un-threaded standard nut. Although there was a QC signature on the package, QC was not done here. Contacted customer service and they sent out the replacement lug nut same day, got it 4 days later. Overall, very satisfied.



by:

The product was fine, other than the fact that the packaging was poorly prepared for a long ride with, UPS. Upon arrival there were two black boxes, taped together with no extra tape holding the ends. One box came open and lost all its contents before arriving to me!
Again, good product but poor packaging.
I was not able to attach the pictures, did that through the email option.

  • Which etrailer Trailer Hub with 5 on 4-1/2 inch Bolt Pattern Fits 1-1/16 inch Diameter Spindle
    The big difference between those two part numbers is the spindle size they are designed to fit. The part # AKIHUB-545-2-LF-2K that you referenced is the correct fit for your spindle since you have a 1-1/16 inch diameter spindle whereas the # AKIHUB-545-2-LF-1K is the correct fit for spindles that are 1 inch in diameter.

  • Parts Needed to Go From a 4-Bolt Hub to a 5-Bolt Hub on a Dexter 1,800 lb. Axle
    For your Dexter axle you will use either the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-545-2-LF-2K (for bearing size L44649) or the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-545-2-LF-1K (for bearing size L44643). You would just want to pull off your current hub and check which bearing you have. I have linked our selection of 13" wheels and tires that will fit either of the above hub assemblies.

    I'm sure we can get you a hub assembly for your Carry-On 7X14GWRS trailer, though we don't have any way of knowing off-hand or cross-referencing what hubs you need. So in order to find the correct hubs you will need to take apart your current hub assembly and look at the bearings themselves; 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 where the bearings...

  • Replacement Hub for 2022 ShoreLandr Boat Trailer
    Thank you for providing that information. According to ShoreLandr your current hub uses # L44649 inner and outer bearings. That means you can use the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2K Axles - 13" to 15" Wheels - 5 on 4-1/2 - Pre-Greased # AKIHUB-545-2-LF-2K. However, it does look like they use a different seal with an inner diameter of 1.063". I recommend measuring your current grease seal to verify this information. If that is the case, you can still use this hub but you will need to...

  • Is There a 5-Lug Idler Hub for Trailer with Two L44649 Bearings
    It sounds like you're looking for the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2K Axles part # AKIHUB-545-2-LF-2K which has a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern and uses two L44649 bearings. This is designed for a 2,000/2,200 lb axle which if this is your bearing combo, is what you have.

For a similar idler hub that uses the same bearings (meaning it will fit on the same spindle as the other part) you can use one of the hubs shown on the linked page.

  • Recommended Hubs for Small Trailer with 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern
    Since you provided the bolt pattern and bearing numbers we won't be needing the pictures. The hub assembly I suggest is the idler hubs # AKIHUB-545-2-LFEZ-2K. These are rated for 2,000 pounds and include the bearings, races, seal, grease cap, and lug nuts. For the same kit for standard spindles instead of the E-Z Lube use # AKIHUB-545-2-LF-2K.

  • Grease Seal Inner Diameter that Comes with Trailer Hub # AKIHUB-545-2-LF-2K
    I wish we offered a grease seal that has the correct inner diameter for your spindle and would fit the hub you referenced but nothing we offer matches that. You seem to have a spindle with the bearing surfaces of a BTR (1.06 inch) and the grease seal dimensions of a BT8 spindle (1.25 inch.) I'd recommend using a caliper like part # PTW80157 to measure the spindle where the seals and bearings ride to confirm this.

    For an exact replacement of what you have you'd want the etrailer brake assembly set part # AKEBRK-2 which is for a 2,000 lb axle like you have. So you'd want just this part number for new assemblies without drums. If you wanted hub/drums as well you'd also need the part # AKHD-545-2-EZ-2K and you'd be set. Then for a matching idler hub you'd want the part # AKIHUB-545-2-LF-2K for the axle without breaks.

  • What Spindle Does Trailer Hub # AKIHUB-545-2-LF-2K Fit
    The hubs you have part # AKIHUB-545-2-LF-2K need to fit a BTR spindle like the # TRU44FR. Sounds like you have the STUB style of spindle which is shorter like you have found. To pick out an axle I'd need to know the length of your current one from hub face to hub face and from spring seat center to center.
