Spindle and Trailer Idler Hub For 2,000LB Trailer With 15", 5 On 4-1/2" Bolt Pattern Wheels  


I need to replace my spindles and hubs on a light weight trailer. My rims are 15 5 lug on 4.5, however the pilot hole is only 2.56. Which hub will fit this rim? I cant find pilot hole dimensions on your website for the hubs. The trailer weighs less than 2,000 lbs. Thank you for your help


Helpful Expert Reply:

There are two spindle sizes that are commonly used for a 2,000lb trailer axle. First is the 1" BT8 Spindle # TRU94FR that you would use with the Easy Grease Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-545-2-LFEZ-1K. This hub has an outer pilot diameter of 2.47 which will allow you to use your 15" wheels that have a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern and 2.56" pilot hole diameter.

The next is the 1-1/6" BTR Spindle # TRU44FR that will need the Easy Grease Trailer Idler Hub # AKIHUB-545-2-LFEZ-2K. This also has a 2.47" outer pilot diameter for your wheels.

Both hubs are lug centric so the difference in pilot hole diameters will not affect the fit for the wheels.
