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"

Video Transcript for TruRyde Electric Brake Assembly Installation

Today were going to install part number TRBK10E01 from TruRyde. This is their Electric Trailer Brake for Left Hand Side. Were going to start off our install with the idler hub already removed from the trailer. This trailer previously did not have brakes so were going to add brakes to the trailer. Now if we add brakes to this trailer axle due to the fact that it has a brake flange already installed located here. The brake is very to install, Ill just make sure the mag is pointing at the bottom.

Now the studs are already built into the backing plate so all weve got to do is add lock washers and nuts. Lock washers will be 5-8 and the nuts will be part number 6-17. With our brake assembly installed on the axle now well go ahead and install the hub. Were using part number 84546UC3-EZ. First off, well apply a little bit of grease to the inside of the races and the bearings.

Then well go ahead and assemble the back bearing and seal. Then well do the same thing for the front bearing and race and apply a little bit of grease. Well go ahead and install the hub. Well add the washer and a nut and tighten it down as needed to make sure we have enough free play in the hub. Then well use a grease gun to fill up our hub.

When we fill up a hub it will also pack the bearings at the same time because the grease has to go through the bearings to get through the hub to the other side. With the hub packed, well go ahead and double check the adjustment for the hub then well go ahead and install the locking cage for the nut. Then well go ahead and install the dust cover. With our hub fully installed well go back to the backing plate and what well do is go ahead and adjust it now. Well take the adjuster and tighten up the drum until it stops moving then well back it off 10 clicks.

We should have a slight dragging on the hub when were done. Now we can go ahead and start hooking for wires for the backing plate. Now we ran the length of the wire from one side to the other and then up to the top. Were using part number 12-2-1. Now on the hub were working on well go ahead and cut the wire in half and make our connections. When we connect our wires from the backing plate to our new wire in a gray cable, it doesnt matter which wire goes to where, as long as you make sure that one of the wires in the gray cable goes ground and everyone goes to brake controller outlet. Theres a variety of ways in making a connection series, you can use wire nuts or a crimp style connector. For our connections made at the left side, well repeat the same process for the right hand side. With that that will cover the installation of part number TRBK10E01.

Fast shipping and top quality parts! Last summer I replaced all four brakes, hubs and bearing sets on my camper with these identical parts, but over-torqued one bearing and experienced an outer bearing failure on one spindle - almost lost the wheel. This unit is the same as I used previously and will replace the hub that was damaged by the bearing failure. I'm just waiting for warmer weather to install it - I won't be as aggressive on tightening the bearing this time. 116262


We have a tightening method that works pretty well for us. We tighten the nut, while turning the hub. As soon as we feel some resistance on the hub turning we stop. Then we back the nut off 1 notch on the castle nut, and secure with the pin or tang washer. Backing off that one notch allows enough breathing room for when the internals and grease warm up and expand a little. Ideally you want about .001 to .007 inches of room and backing off one notch usually falls within that range.

I ordered a complete electric brake setup for my 6x12 Haulmark trailer and Timbren springs for my Chevy Silverado 1500. Etrailer is great to work with and at this point I have no reason to buy from anyone else!! The brakes are all Dexter parts which is what I wanted. They were very easy to install on the trailer with a bit of help from the etrailer video. The brakes work great and give me a much better feeling about stopping the trailer in a emergency situation and is much easier on my truck brakes. The Timbren springs springs were easy to install after I realized that the installation is not correct for a 2004 Silverado but could be right for a 2011. The springs work very well as long as I have a fair amount of weight on the truck or pulling a trailer with at least 200lbs of tongue wt. When the truck only has 3 or 400 lbs in it which is normal with a cap and bed slide, it rides quite a bit rougher than without the Timbrens. I think air bags would have been a better decision with varying weight loads 47572

Everything arrived in good shape. Haven't installed do to weather. Was missing one plastic wire fastener on one of the breaks. On rechecking the web page I see that the nuts to secure the break to the trailer were to be purchased separately, had I noticed that I would have included it with my order. No problem was able to purchase 8 nuts and washers for $2.00 at a local nut and bolt dealer. Appreciate your help with my purchase and will deal with you when I need more items for my utility trailers or camping trailer. 178223

I bought 4 of these to replace all my brake system parts. They came with the races installed and were very easy to assemble and install. Nuts come with them. BE SURE TO SAVE YOUR GREASE CAPS FOR THE ONES THAT CAME MINE ARE JUNK AND DO NOT FIT. Time will tell the quality but at this time I have told my friends to buy these for the price is right. There is not a place to Review the ETrailer service. I had to send several emails to get any help. Nothing was done about the grease caps and I was finely sent 4 plastic adjusted plugs, which I returned so they could see the poor quality for themselves. Service left me sour. order the right parts and double check to be sure and return any junk. Service rating POOR. 222618

I am very happy with the products I purchased and the service I've received from etrailer. I jump for joy when I see the "made in america" label on products. At first I was just going to buy wheel bearings but when I saw how reasonable it was to put a set of brakes on my 5 X 8 covered trailer that I use to carry my motorcycle (Harley Bagger) I couldn't resist. Since the initial purchase I have made other purchases from etrailer with the same excellent customer service and product quality. You get what you pay for! Thank you etrailer. PS: I love the instructional videos also. 39526

I have ordered products before and service has been great. I like that a name of contact person is given, makes and online experience much better. This past order was for drums and bearings for my boat trailer. As usual they came earlier than I expected. Everything was there. Only one complaint was that one of the drums had a considerable amount of surface rust. I was able to remove it with emery cloth and every thing else seemed OK. Perhaps the person picking parts from storage should be given better instructions as to how to inspect the product before delivery. 220505

Got boxes last week, as promised fast delivery. Bought the brake drum assemblies and the complete electric brake systems for my old travel trailer. I was going to install but I'm having the axles flipped sooooo, I'm having that shop do them. Reason- brakes 1st then have the axles flipped, the brakes would be upside down. Etrailer's websight was great. It was late when I ordered and had some questions. I went to the question section and my ? was answered. Thanks guys for great prices and the items I needed. 177541

This is a Dexter OEM hub assembly, so it was manufactured per Dexter spec's and quality control. 142719

by: Everett w.04/08/2015

Product is everything you see and more. Everything fit just like it came off the axle. The numbers in the ETrailer on line catalog and the numbers on the old parts were the same. The brake backing plates and brake assemblies saved hours of frustrating work to put together. An hours work with a coffee break I was done. ETrailer has good instruction and helpful videos to go with these products. Thanks The shipping order arrived within the time ETrailer said it would. 184095

This seems like a good product and it was definitely a good price. Everything went together fine. Only problem was that I was missing the lug nuts on one of the drums. The packaging was a little suspect as well but it didn't affect this product. (Two 30 lb drums in a cardboard box playing pinball with two backing plate assemblies half way across the country) I got everything I needed and didn't spend a small fortune...good enough. 91660

Great price, fast ship. Ordered on Sat. Night and received on Tues. morning. Product is great quality. Only suggestion I would make is that they should include nuts for the backing plates. ( I ordered those as well) Anyone that is ordering these is usually replacing old rusty ones and can't reuse the old nuts. Other than that misunderstanding everything was great. Would definitely order from again. 29515

by: Kevin L09/12/2013

Overall , no complaints about the product for the price . Nice hubs but a bit cheap on the bearings . Everything fit fine and works as it should . My only and biggest complaint is the packaging - products this heavy need to be wrapped in cardboard before boxing - the box was severely damaged in transit and I had to replace 3 of the new lug nuts . Otherwise, great service and price can't be beat . 99559

by: Scott D.06/14/2014

Good price and great hardware. I replaced the cheaper bearings with ones from the local auto parts store for an additional $15.00 per hub, but having good bearings to match the quality of the hubs was important. I used these with the TruRyde Electric Brake Assemblies. Went on easy and with the help of the videos on, I felt very confident that the job was done right. 135579

by: Keith G.03/31/2015

Arrived as advertised. Put these on my travel trailer in no time. Just pack the bearings and bolt them on. The lug nuts didn't work with my wheel, as it needs a deeper/longer nut to stick out far enough to get a socket on it, as the lugs are recessed in the wheel. Unlike the picture, a second dust cap without the rubber insert to get to the zerk fitting was included as well. 181783

Excellent quality and direct fit. Ordering complete backing plates made the install very easy by removing the four bolts on the back of the old plate and installing the new plate. Used a little brake cleaner on the drum and assembled the bearings; and the install was complete. E-Z lube the axle and bearing and done. Couldn't of been a better install and replacement. 26128

I know that the parts are heavy but the packing of the first order sucked. I didn't see the wires were just about severed during shipment because it looked like they were just thrown in the box. The second order when I received it, the drum was about ready to fall out of the box. However, the salesperson was helpful, and knowledge of product was great. 211847

This product is just a Dexter part. They are what was already on my trailer. The real great thing was the etrailer experience. One of the easiest orders I have ever placed as a "do it yourselfer" The service and advice was first rate and my order was shipped fast and arrived complete. I'm very glad I found to get these parts. 162926

by: Terry10/16/2014

As other reviewers the packing shipping was a little lacking. It probably did some bouncing around. The hub arrived with rust. I has to contact Dexter and send a picture to make sure that it was not an issue. They okayed it because it did not get into the race. Bearings seemed to be on the cheep side. Guess you get what you pay for.... 156233

Very pleased with the product. the fit was perfect. what you get for the money is amazing. the only slight drawback is that the bearings don't have any brand or part numbers on them, which leads me to think they may be of lesser quality. Again, what you get for the money is well worth it! 43885

Drum is OK, but the included bearings are very low quality and I won't use them. The price was cheap and cheap bearings were of course what is included. should offer a more expensive option of real bearings (Timken) like other places do. 45952

  • Recommended Trailer Wheel Bearing Grease for Dexter Axles
  • Usually when you replace parts that get lubricated, you clean all of the existing grease first before adding any new grease, just in case there is a compatibility issue. Since you are using Dexter axles and replacing components with Dexter parts, the grease will be compatible. For wheel bearing grease, use LubriMatic Disc/Drum Brake and Wheel Bearing Grease, # L11465, or # L11380. This is a LUB-L/M type polyurea-based grease that is compatible with most grease formulas of the same or...

  • How to Select New Brakes and Hubs for a Load Rite Boat Trailer
  • The 2,600 lb axles on your Load Rite boat trailer are likely de-rated 3,500 lb axles, so you should have no problem using 3,500 lb brakes and drums. The important factor to consider in this situation is that the brakes match the brake mounting flange on your axle and that the hubs/drums match your spindles. Almost all 3,500 lb brake assemblies require a 4-bolt brake mounting flange. The bolt holes on the brake mounting flange should be 2-7/8 inches apart on center. If your brake mounting...

  • Timbren Axle Less System Recommendation for an Offroad Trailer
  • For building an offroad trailer the part # ASR2KHDS02 would be an excellent place to start. The only other kit I would have you consider would be the # ASR35HDS02. This is setup for off-road tires, has a 3,500 lb capacity, will give the trailer a 4 inch lift, and will give you 8 inches of clearance from the hub face to the trailer frame for tire clearance. These systems are great for off-road use because they don't have an axle so the ground clearance is great. For a hub with a matching...

  • We offer both traditional petroleum-based wheel bearing grease and also more environmentally-friendly bio-based grease products that are produced from crops. It is permissible to mix the two types. From your description it appears you may have petroleum-based grease in your bearings now. If your utility trailer will be exposed to water (and salt water especially) then I suggest a petroleum grease designed specifically to withstand such a corrosive environment, such as Lubrimatic part...

  • Is There a Replacement Hub for My Mobile Home Axle
  • In order to determine which hub will fit the spindle, you will either need the bearing numbers from the bearings from that spindle, or you can take some precise measurements on the different steps on the spindle using a dial caliper to get precise measurements. Often times it is not possible to find replacement parts for mobile home axles as they are designed for one time use. In most cases replacement parts are simply not available. However, if you can find the bearing numbers or collect...

  • How to Select the Correct Hub to Change Out a 4 on 9.44 Inch Bolt Circle Wheels with 5 on 4-1/2
  • It sounds as if you have taken all of the correct measurements to determine the correct hub and drum assembly for your trailer. Normally the spacing of the bearings is not an issue, as long as the axle used on the trailer is not an Agricultural axle or a mobile home axle. The Trailer Hub & Drum Assembly, item # 84546UC3-EZ, is designed to be used with the EZ Lube Spindle, item # R20384EZ. The dimensions of this spindle are as follows. Seal diameter - 1.73 inches Inner Bearing diameter...

  • Hub/Drum and Brake Assembly Recommendation for a Dexter 3,500 lb Axle
  • The Dexter 3,500 lb axles you have will fit the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 84546UC3-EZ that you referenced. The brake assemblies part numbers # 23-468 and # 23-469 will also work well with the # 84546UC3-EZ hub you referenced.

  • Will Trailer Hub and Drum # 84546UC3-EZ Fit an ALKO 3500 Pound Axle
  • I read through the other question you sent and I can clear some things up for you. First, the ALKO axle brake mounting flanges have a different bolt pattern than do Dexter or similar assemblies when you go up to a 12 inch brake assembly and that is why they will not fit ALKO axles. The top mounting holes on an ALKO mounting flange are wider than they are on a Dexter. But on a 10x2-1/4 inch brake assembly the 4 bolt pattern should be the same. So you can use other 10x2-1/4 inch assemblies...

  • Can EZ-Lube Hub and Drums be Used on Non-EZ-Lube Spindles
  • This Trailer Hub & Drum Assembly # 84546UC3-EZ will work on your non-ez lube spindles. The only difference between the ez lube hub and drums and the non-ez-lube hub and drums is the grease cap. The ez lube ones like the # 84546UC3-EZ have a remove-able rubber seal on the cap that allows you to access the grease fitting of the ez-lube spindles. The # 84546UC3-EZ will work for you regardless if you have EZ-lube spindles or not. I also attached a video on trailer brake installation for...

  • How to Determine the Correct Hub for My MacGregor Sailboat Trailer
  • Determining the correct wheel bearings, seals or hubs for a trailer is normally done by using the existing inner and outer wheel bearing part numbers and grease seal part number. This is the only way to be sure that the correct parts are ordered. The bearing part numbers will ensure that you get the proper size and weight capacity parts for your application. When replacing the hub you will also need to be sure that you measure the wheel bolt pattern (see link) and, if the axle capacity...

  • Troubleshooting Weak Electric Trailer Brakes
  • Using too small of wire to carry the brake circuit can cause a number of problems ranging from poor brake performance to the wires melting. I would recommend you replace your current wiring with the recommended gauge wire. We typically recommend 10 gauge wire. You should note that locking up trailer wheels is not an effective way to slow down a trailer. You would want your trailer brakes to brake hard enough that they would almost lock up but never lock up. There are several other...

  • Hub Assembly Recommendation for a 3500 lb EZ Lube Spindle
  • The Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly, # 84546UC3-EZ, that you referenced will fit on a Dexter 3,500 lb EZ Lube spindle, however, this hub and drum assembly was designed to be used with axles that have 10 inch x 2-1/4 inch brake assemblies already mounted. If you do not have brakes, then I would recommend looking into a idler hub like the Dexter Trailer Hub Assembly, # 84545UC1-EZ. This assembly will also fit on the Dexter 3,500 lb EZ Lube spindle and has the same bolt pattern as...

  • Is Mobile 1 Synthetic Tube Grease Good for Trailer Bearings
  • That is a good question. I suppose it depends on how it is formulated and what its ratings are. Take a look at the FAQ article I have linked that covers everything you ever wanted to know about grease but were afraid to ask. The first part covers what the various letter ratings mean. Ideally you want something that is GC-LB rated. The FAQ also discusses choosing the best grease for an application and a compatibility chart. But when in doubt, clean it out. Meaning that if you are not...

  • Replacement Hub for Enclosed Cargo Trailer with Lippert lc135-d Trailer Axle
  • I looked online trying to find any information about the Lippert LC135-D axle, and was not able to find anything. Your best bet will be to pull off one of the existing hubs, and get the reference numbers off of it. If the inner bearing is L68149 and the outer is L44649, and the grease seal used has an outer diameter of 2.565 inches and an inner diameter of 1.719, your existing hubs have five 1/2 inch diameter wheel studs on a 4-1/2 inch bolt circle, then the # 84546UC3-EZ you referenced...

  • Can I Replace Standard Spindles with EZ-Lube Spindles Without Replacing the Entire Axle Assembly
  • You can cut off the old spindle and have an EZ-Lube spindle welded on your current axle. I would recommend using the same size spindle, just the EZ-Lube version, as your trailer originally came with. That being said, new hub assemblies and bearings should be hand greased when first installed. You have to get a good coating on all the bearings first, then you can use an EZ-Lube spindle to fill up assembly and do the packing for you. You will still have to perform regular maintenance....

  • Inspecting Hubs, Bearings and Spindles on a Boat Trailer
  • Thank you for the measurements you provided, they are very helpful and tell us everything we need to know to recommend parts that will work for you. Based on your bearing numbers and spindle measurements you need a 3,500 lb hub with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. The type of hub that you need will depend on whether you have brakes or want a galvanized versus a painted finish. For idler hubs (no brakes), you can use part # 84545BX or # 84545UC1-EZ for EZ Lube spindles. These hubs are also...

  • Will Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 84546UC3-EZ Fit Inside a 13 Inch Wheel
  • The Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly, part # 84546UC3-EZ, will fit inside a 13 inch wheel. The reason we do not list it as working is because the highest load range 13 inch tire is not rated higher than 3,500 lbs, so the weight capacity will be determined by the tire or the wheel and not the axle. I am including a couple of links to FAQ pages on trailer tires and adding drum brakes to a trailer.

  • Is the Timbren Axle-Less Suspension System 2000 lbs Compatible with Electric Brakes
  • You can use electric brakes with a Timbren Axle-Less Suspension System rated for 2,000 lbs, however, you would need the Heavy-Duty system, part # ASR2KHDS01. The Timbren Axle-Less suspension system, # A20RS545, that you referenced is not compatible with trailer brakes because it does not have a brake mounting flange at the base of the spindle. The Timbren Heavy-Duty system, comes with a brake mounting flange with a 4 on 4 bolt pattern which fits most 10 inch brake assemblies. The brake...

  • How to Determine the Correct Replacement Hubs for a Trailer with a 3,500 Pound Axle
  • There are a couple of things you can look at to determine the correct replacement hubs. The best way is to retrieve the inner and outer bearing numbers that are stamped into the bearings. I suspect that you will have the Trailer Hub Assembly, # 84545UC1-EZ, which uses L68149 Inner/L44649 Outer bearings and E-Z lube axles. Or, for a hub and drum, # 84546UC3-EZ, which is the same but has the hub and drum for drum brakes. But, the best way to know is to check your bearing numbers. The...

  • Parts Needed to Add Electric Brakes to a Trailer
  • Sounds like you are looking for everything needed to install electric trailer brakes on a trailer that did not originally come with electric brakes. I attached a link to an FAQ to the right that will walk you through the entire process. As far as wiring, what you will need to do is run a wire from the front of the trailer to each brake location. You will need 10 gauge blue primary wire, part # 10-1-1, which is sold by the foot. I would recommend measuring where you will be running the...

  • Installing Hydraulic Trailer Brakes on a Kristi Utility Trailer
  • There are two ways to go. Drum brakes and Disc brakes. To determine which assemblies will fit on your spindles we will need to know the inner and outer bearing and seal part numbers. We will also need the Brake Mounting Flange bolt pattern on the spindles and the bolt pattern and size of the wheels that are on your trailer. For the hydraulic actuator we will need the size of the trailer tongue where the actuator will mount. If you will get back to me with your choices and the needed...

  • Bearing Grease Recommendation for Dexter EZ Lube Axles
  • I would go with the LubriMatic LMX Industrial Strength Grease # L11390. This is heavy-duty, premium grease for the toughest lubricating jobs on the biggest, heaviest equipment. It performs better under higher pressures and temperatures than standard multi-purpose grease, and it resists water better.

  • Drum and Hub Kit, Wheel, and Brake Assembly Recommendation for a 2009 Starcraft 2106
  • I did some research and found that all of the hub and drum assemblies that would fit on your spindle would be 10 inches in diameter, and I also found that if you have a 10 drum you have to have at least a 13 inch rim, so you would need to upgrade to bigger wheels and tires also. The Trailer Hub & Drum Assembly, part # 84546UC3-EZ, that you referenced is the correct hub and drum assembly. For brake assemblies I would recommend a Galvanized 10 inch Marine Brake Assembly, part # 18788,...

  • How Does the Timbren Heavy-Duty Axle-Less Trailer Suspension Mount to a Trailer Frame
  • If you have a box frame and are unable to use the hardware to install Timbren Heavy-Duty Axle-Less Trailer Suspension # ASR2KHDS03 this is another option. You would need to weld the suspension to the frame. Welding should be performed by a qualified professional. If you do not already have hubs that would fit you can add # 84546UC3-EZ for a hub and drum assembly if you were to also add brakes. Or for an idler hub use # 84545UC1-EZ.

  • Installing Electric Drum Brakes on Older Statecraft Pop-Up Camper Trailer
  • If you are installing new electric drum brakes on a trailer that does not have them, or if you are replacing/upgrading brakes on a trailer that does already have them, it is advisable for safety reasons to treat both wheels equally. It is not safe to operate a trailer that has working brakes on only one wheel. This could lead to severe sway and so is not recommended. If you are replacing existing brake assemblies it is still recommended that you replace both for the same reason. If...
