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"

I ordered 4 drums that came with bearings,seals,lug nuts,and dust caps. the bearings all came loose with no protection. one of the drums came without the package of bearings,seal,lug nuts, and dust cap. when they sent me the replacement package it came with a different seal definitely cheap Chinese junk also no dust cap. the bearings were Chinese as well. I will never order from this company again.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you.

Same as the backing plates, these hub and drum assemblies fit just right and have been doing a good job on my 10,000 LB dump trailer for over a year now with no issues.




by:

My home-made (not by me) trailer used trailer house axles, and the hubs were shot when I got it. Based on the spindle dimensions (thanks, eTrailer!), I determined that these 5200-lb hub/drum assemblies would fit, and they did perfectly. I've repacked many wheel bearings, so installing these was simple. They spin smoothly and seem to do their job well. The most weight I've put on these four hubs is about 5800 lbs, which was near the limit for the tires, but not a problem for the hubs. I've also driven an hour down the highway on multiple occasions, and have no complaints.

I haven't wired up my brakes yet, so I can't comment on how well the drums work.




by:

Dexter provided a new rear seal, but it was the wrong size (apparently they use two different sizes of spindles on these axles). They also neglected to include a new cotter pin. Otherwise its a great product.


Comments
It is possible that the spindle could use a seal that has the outer dimension of 3.376 and an inner diameter of 2.25 like part # RG06-070
Grease Seals 10-36 (pair)
$4.71
. A cotter pin isnt included with the hub however we do have them available like part # 3371302250
Replacement Cotter Pin for Western Snow Plow - 1-1/2" Long

by:

Very good quality, with straightforward installation. Only negative is the fact that the kit doesnt come with new key washer, castle nut, and cotter pin. So if using this kit make sure to save those!




by:

Great product made in the USA use all 4 to replace Chinese junk that came on trailer from the factory.




by:

The customer service is top notch! Helped me with multiple questions and updated me with E.T.A. and tracking # I will Definitely will buy from them again!!!




by:

Bought these for my trailer house axles. I converted to 6 lugs. Everything was easy. I don't use the brakes as of now. But t looks like a perfect fit. When I do go to brakes ill buy the parts for that.




by:

The brakes on my 2002 Komfort 24-TS trailer were completely shot. I needed to replace the drums (cheaper than having them turned). I also needed to replace the electric brake assemblies and to upgrade them from manual to automatic adjusting. I called etrailer.com a couple of times to make sure I was ordering the rights parts and the phone reps were very helpful and courteous. The parts arrived on time and in good shape. I had everything I needed to complete the job. It took me all day to do all 4 wheels but I saved myself a whopping $1,000 over having the shop do the job.

Fantastic!

by:

Much more rust than I expected, I may have to take one drum to a brake shop and have it turned to clean up the rust.




by:

Dexter breaks and hubs are the best and worth the extra money and made in the USA




by:

Wanted to wait until after our most recent trip with our trailer before giving you the one year follow-up. Just pulled the trailer almost 1000 miles in the Rocky Mountains. The Nev-R-Adjust brakes & drums worked great and I felt very confident in their performance. I really appreciate not having to crawl under the trailer to adjust the brakes. All are good products and I would recommend them to all.




by:

Very professional staff.had nothing left for brakes and Jesse hooked me up.everything fit perfectly.Thank you for the fast shipping too

by:

Great customer service.
Had issues with
exactly what to order. Josephine was excellent helping me through the correct hub parts I needed Everything worked out and shipping was fast. Highly recommend ordering from them.




by:

So this was the final upgrade to an 18 year old travel trailer - new brake assemblies, bearings, seals and hubs. The new brakes were a great improvement after a couple of trips break in, assembly was easy (although I do recommend buying a couple extra seals, just in case they get bent on install (ask me how I know). I have never worked on axles before but as a confident diy-er I was comfortable tackling it. Great products that were perfect fit made this an easy deal.




by:

The hub is a quality replacement for the OE hub/drums on an 1967 Airstream. The bearings/seals that come with the kit are not quite the quality I trust, but local shops have better quality ones available. Also, I'm confused as to why it's not listed (and confirmed in sales rep replies of customer questions) for 15" wheels as it fits in the two different styles of 15" wheels we have with plenty of clearance and the neutral offset loads the bearings correctly. I'd also recommend running a thread chaser on the lugs as paint can cause nuts to jam and not seat fully and thus work lose. All in all, with a little TLC, a better replacement option than rebuilding the original hubs.




by:

products are great. Kelsey was FANTASTIC to deal with. Seriously, super super helpful, friendly, and knowledgable.




by:

I have ordered from etrailer.com on other occasions and for the most part what keeps me coming back in the pricing. They usually have the lowest price for the same original equipment. Be careful if you haven't heard that your product has shipped in a reasonable amount of time, even if their website says they have the item in stock. They will hold your order until they have all the parts to ship. I had not seen a shipped email for almost a week and when I called they said they would have it to ship in mid august, about a month after I ordered. I was told they had a similar item in stock ready to ship now if I wanted to change my order. I appreciated that and did change my order, however, I needed to know that information at the time they knew it because I had to change my vacation plans because I could not get the parts in time to take our 5th wheel. Overall this is a good place to order parts from and I will keep doing so.




by:

Perfect fit. Working great!




by:

Hubs work just like they should, Had to order correct seals though. The included seals not the the advertised size when they arrived.
Overall a good product.




by:

Fit exactly as expected to replace obsolete hub requiring wheels no longer available. Have about 500 loaded miles on it. Performed as expected.




by:

i was afraid this was going to be wrong!!, you know, ordering from the internet!!! but was an exact match!!


Comments
great!!
william - 07/25/2016


by:

The parts should work well for converting from mobile tires and rims to standard tires and rims for my FB trailer.




by:

Recieved drum a day earlier than expected. Was a little concerned when I got it because the bottom of the box was open about 4in. Opened and everything seemed to be there. Almost exact replacement for my 97 prowler 5th wheel. Only difference was original drum had slots on sides to adjust the brakes without having to crawl under the camper. Overall it looks to be very good quality. Just pack the beaings, install grease seal, put on and adjust the brakes. Done!!!!!




by:

Shipping was fast Parts Fit just right and Great Price
I make my living moving my equipment on my trailers and when one is out of service it coast me money with etrailer parts and fast shipping I'm up and going in no time. Thanks etrailer

  • Hub and Drum Assembly for 6000 lb Axle
    Given the information you have provided, the Trailer Hub and Drum, part # 8-201-5UC3 is what you are needing. This assumes that the brake assemblies you have are 12 inch. The bearings, cap, and seals are included with the Hub and drum. However, this hub wouldn't be compatible with a 15 inch wheel, which is what you were wanting because you already have a set of tires for a 15 inch wheel. You'll need to go up in size to a 16 inch wheel/tire combo. You'll want to choose a wheel/tire whose...

  • Should Mobile Home Axles be Replaced on Trailer
    If you are trying to be cautious you'll need to replace the entire axle as mobile-home axles are only intended as one-time-use axles and anything beyond that is a risk. You are going to need to measure your current axles in a few places to get the correct one as we don't have access to what your numbers reference. 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 on your current hubs. I attached...

  • Parts Needed to Convert Trailer from Hydraulic Drum Brakes to Disc Brakes
    Changing a trailer over from hydraulic drum brakes to hydraulic disc brakes requires both the new brake and hub/rotor assemblies that use your same bearing set, a new actuator, brake flanges and a brake line kit. The pressure rating of a drum brake actuator is lower than that of a disc brake type, generally 1000-1100 psi versus 1600 psi for a disc brake actuator. This is why the actuator needs to be changed. You will also need to select new hub/rotor assemblies that match the bearings used...

  • Replacement Hub for Homemade Trailer Axle
    In order to determine which hub you need you will either need the bearing numbers from the bearings from your spindle, or you can take some precise measurements on the different steps on the spindle using a dial caliper to get precise measurements.

  • Replacement Hub and Drum for a Dexter 8-133
    You will need to get the other bearing number from inside your current hubs before we can pick you out replacement hubs. Most likely the outer bearing you pulled is a LM67048 and the inner you have is a 25580 which would mean that the # 8-201-5UC3 would be the correct size hub and drum for you. This hub has a bolt pattern of 6 on 5-1/2 inch and would not work with your current wheels. I attached a page that has all of the wheels and tires we offer in that bolt pattern.

  • How to Pick Out a Trailer Hub and Drum and Then Brake Assembly to Fit It
    The hub part # 8-201-5UC3 is a 12 by 2 inch drum/hub that calls for a brake assembly that measures the same. The problem is that the 12x2 inch brake assemblies we carry are all 5-bolt flange assemblies. It would be pretty unlikely that the hub you mentioned would be the correct fit for a spindle that only has a 4 bolt flange so I wonder if maybe you need a different hub actually. In order to pick out the correct hub assembly for a trailer you are going to need know a few key pieces of...

    On Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 8-201-5UC3 the outer diameter of the hub center is 3-3/16-inches at the top/outer surface, tapering to 3-5/16-inches at the base near the hub face.

    The biggest difference between the hubs part # 8-201-5UC3 and # 8-201-9UC3-EZ is the grease cap style and the weight capacity. The # 8-201-5UC3 is for non EZ lube spindles basically which means it has a solid grease cap and has a 2,600 lb capacity, and # 8-201-9UC3-EZ instead has a grease cap with a removable center section to allow access to a zerk fitting and has a 3k capacity.
