E-Z Lube-Compatible Hub for Simple Lubrication

The grease cap on this hub is specially designed to work with your Dexter E-Z Lube axle to make lubricating bearings quick and easy. Just remove the plug on the grease cap, attach a grease gun to the zerk fitting on the end of the spindle, and inject the grease. It will flow easily to both inner and outer bearings. Not only does this make lubricating the bearings easy, but it also helps to prevent corrosion of the hub. This is because you can lubricate the bearings without the mess of taking apart the entire assembly.

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"

- AKIHUB-655-35-EZ-K

I used these to replace odd-ball 5 on 5.5 hubs. I hate that bolt pattern. So hard to find good rims because hardly anyone uses them. In fact, I did this swap shortly after buying the trailer (read, tires and wheels were still in new condition). The dealer I bought them from was reluctant to give me much money for them. He told me that even he would have a hard time selling them because they were such an odd-ball bolt pattern. As he said this, I'm looking around at his lot of trailers, ALL with hubs with this same bolt patter. Ugh! I wanted to upgrade the rims on my trailer, and upgrade the tires. So, went with this pattern (on two trailers). Quality product. Would def. buy again.

- AKIHUB-655-35-EZ-K

So on the last trailer I converted to hydraulic disc, I used the Titan kit with actuator. This trailer is a cargo trailer for work 14'X8' and not that heavy. I went with Kodiak discs and the Hydrastar actuator. I mounted it inside the trailer to protect it and keep it out of sight. It's so quiet but works flawlessly! Even with the door open, it's tough to hear, so for bleeding, I set up a remote switch to activate the system. It doesn't leak, has plenty of power, and is very smooth coupled with my factory Ford brake controller.. It's been a year, so long time reliability is a wait and see, but so far, I'm very happy.

- AKIHUB-655-35-EZ-K

Could not have asked for anything better bearing being pressed in just a simple of installation as you could ask for I will always go back to etrailer.com for all my trailer needs

- AKIHUB-655-35-EZ-K

Very happy with the product! Fast shipping and worked perfect. What impressed me the most though, was that they emailed me a year later To make sure I was happy with the product. Absolutely will use them again. It’s hard to find good service like this anymore these days. Very impressed.

Purchased several items from you, very happy with service and pricing! Wouldn’t have been able to build our off road camper with your help!

Building a trailer, these work great

- AKIHUB-655-35-EZ-K

There's not much to say. It's a trailer hub. There are plenty of things to say about the customer service, which was great when I called in to make my order and make sure I was ordering to right part. The time of arrival at my doorstep was very quick. I thought I was going to have to order and forget about it until it arrived but not with e trailer; the order arrived within a few days. It was well packaged too.

These hubs work great. I got them because I wanted my trailer bolt pattern to match my Toyota Tacoma. It has worked out great so far.

Loved the personal service and the help. I tried a few other sources before going online to order from etrailer.

From now on all my trailer needs will be fulfilled from etrailer!!!

  • Idler Hub So That I Can Use 5x5.5 Bolt Pattern Jeep Wheels on My Off-Road Trailer
    The lug studs on the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-555-35-K are 1/2" studs, which should match the studs used on your Jeep wheels. From what it sounds like, you're trying to replace the hubs on a trailer to use the wheels from a Jeep? While the studs may match up, the wheel offset is going to potentially cause a problem. You'll need to make sure you have enough space between the hub face and the frame to use the negative offset that vehicle wheels come with. You might be best served...
