How to Choose Correct Replacement Trailer Hub with 5 on 4-1/2 Inch Bolt Pattern  


Need A 5 bolt 4”1/4 hub


Expert Reply:

If you're looking for a replacement trailer hub then you likely need a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern as there aren't any 5 on 4-1/4" bolt patterns when it comes to trailers. I've attached a link to some helpful articles to help you verify your bolt pattern.

Once you know the bolt pattern you'll also need to make sure you have the correct size hub. Sometimes this can be verified by looking at the weight capacity of your axle and going off of that but the best way to go about this is confirm what bearings and seal your hubs use. Here are the most common for a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern:

2,000 lb Axle
Replacement Idler Hub # AKIHUB-545-2-LFEZ-2K
Inner Bearing - # L44649
Outer Bearing - # L44649
Grease Seal - # 10-9

3,500 lb Axle
Replacement Idler Hub - # AKIHUB-545-35-EZ-K
Inner Bearing - # L68149
Outer Bearing - # L44649
Grease Seal - # 58846

Hope this helps at least point you in the right direction. If you have something else please let me know!
