How to Select Replacement Hub with Bearings, Races and Seals


I have a Dexter 8-238 Hub which needs replaced. Im having trouble finding that part Can you help?

We have a wide range of trailer hubs so we can get you all set. Our hubs include bearings, races and seals.

The way to select a replacement hub is to match up the bearings to the original hub. A new hub must use the same bearings as the old one in order to fit properly on your spindles.

I linked our main page for trailer hubs (both idler hubs without brakes and hub/drums for drum brakes) and all you need to do is click on your inner and outer bearing part numbers to then see all hubs that use those same bearings. You also want to verify the axle weight rating so you choose hubs with an appropriate weight capacity and confirm the wheel bolt pattern so your wheels fit.

Several articles to help you are linked. You can also just tell me your bearing numbers and axle rating and I can then show you all hubs that will fit your spindles.
