How to Select Replacement Hub/Drums for EZ-Loader Trailer

Question:

I HAVE A EZ LOADER TRL AND IM REPLACING THE DRUMS AND BEARINGS. I HAVE MEASURED THE DRUM ITS 10 X 2 1/2 5 ON 4 1/4. DOES THIS MEAN 4 1/2 ?

Expert Reply:

The bolt pattern of your existing hubs is likely to be 5-on-4-1/2 as this is a popular configuration, but there are actually four different 5-lug bolt patterns available in our replacement hub/drum products. You can refer to the linked article on bolt patterns for help in confirming which you have on your trailer.

You'll want to select your new hubs based on this bolt pattern, your axle weight rating and your bearings. New hubs need to match up on all three to ensure they will fit on your spindles, fit your wheels and have the weight capacity required by your axle.

The 10-inch drums we offer have a width of 2-1/4-inches, not 2-1/2, but this could just be a measurement error. I have linked all 10 x 2-1/4 hub/drums and you can click on your bolt pattern, bearing parts and axle rating to find hubs matched to your axles and wheels.

For example, for a 5-on-4-1/2 hub/drum for a 3500-lb axle that uses bearings L68149 and L44649 you can use hub/drum # AKHD-545-35-K or # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K for EZ-Lube spindles.
