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 Dexter Trailer Hubs and Drums 84546UC3 Review

Today were going to review part number 84546UC3. This is the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly for 3,500 pound axles with the 5 on 4 inch bolt pattern. This trailer hub and drum assembly will fit most 3,500 pound axles including the Dexter. The dimensions on it is 10 inches in diameter, 2 inches wide. The bolt pattern is the 5 lugs on 4 inch bolt pattern. This hub and drum assembly does come with the lug nuts, does come with the inner bearing which is part number L68149, comes with the outer bearing which is part number L44649, comes with the greased seal, part number 58846, and it also comes with the grease cap.

Now the races are included and they are already installed. You can see the outer race which is in there. If I turn it over you can see right in here the inner race. Those will come all pre-installed so the bearings will slide right in. Basically, as youll see the outer bearing will fit right in there, and the inner bearing will fit right into that race.

The seal will actually have to be installed right in there after the bearing is put in, and then the grease cap is what will go over the outer bearing. And as you can see the lug nuts, you can screw right on to the wheel studs. Again, the weight capacity on this one hub and drum assembly is 1,750 pounds so when you use this with the other one, two of them on an axle, it will have a capacity for the 3,500 pound axle. And, just to show you that measurement we had talked about. The diameter is measured inside to inside for your brake assembly so it would use a 10 inch diameter brake assembly; and then the width for the brake shoe would be measured from here to here.

So, if we put that on it would be 2 . So it will use a brake assembly that is 10 inch diameter by 2 wide. And that should do it for the review on part number 84546UC3. This is the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly for a 3,500 pound axle.

To anyone who is putting brakes on a trailer I got a set of electric brakes hubs bearing and seal and cap from e-trailer and everything fit perfect. They even arrived 2 days earlier than I thought. I would recommend e-trailer over anyone else. They have the best quality product for less and made in USA. For me if I need any trailer parts I wouldn't look any more. They have very friendly service and has someone there that not only works in office but understands and knows bearings and when you ask questions knows exactly what you are talking about. I am completely 100% satisfied with their product and service. Jeff Cannedy 78324

I got these drums in to replace some old ones. the only thing I miss is the adjustment hole. But being an over cautious tower I inspect my trailer brakes often. Installed yesterday and they worked great. Ordered on a Sunday and received on Tuesday - but I live in the same shipping -zone I believe - got some great LED trailer lights as well.

With only 10days left before a 1,000mi trip with the family travel trailer, I decided to check one of the brakes for wear. To my great dismay the brakes were heavily worn. On last Friday afternoon, etrailer customer service helped me determine what parts would be needed for my application and for a little over $400, I ordered everything to make completely new again. I received completely assembled electric brakes, new wheel bearings and drums for four wheels. The items were rec'd on the following Wednesday with standard shipping. Wednesday evening I installed all new parts, which all were correct and now I am ready to roll with 6 days to spare. I would strongly recommend etrailer for your trailer needs. 52675

Wow ! Great prices and fast shipping. Saved a ton. I wish I had found you last year when I had to rebuild my othe Pace Shadow GT Trailer after some 150,000 towing miles. This open trailer has had a tougher life and maybe 50,000 miles. We turned around while working on the trailer and there he was.

The web site it excellent and informative!!! I ordered a complete electric brake system for a new single axle trailer including controller for the truck, which all came in a timely manner and in good condition. BUT, they should have supplied the BASTARD NUTS (7/16"-20) for the two backing plates. I lost a few hours trying to locate the nuts. Also, the bearing caps are so thin that they dent with the slightest hit with a rubber hammer. 111407

Purchased 5 lug 4.5 hub and electric break assembly with controller and wiring. The Web site was easy to follow. Video demonstrations gave me enough information to place an order with confidence I was getting the correct parts. They will be installed on a 24 ft open car trailot. Shipping was fast. I would recommend your company to others. I will write a second review when I install parts and take it for a pull to the drag strip this spring. 6895

Good hub/drum assembly. Had a problem after I got them on with my wheel not wanting to fit. Still haven't figured out how a wheel that was on a 5-on-4.5 hub wouldn't fit this hub. The old wheels appeared to be off a car, maybe that was the problem. Just got some new wheels meant for trailers and they fit perfectly. The only other issue I ran into was getting the dust caps on turned out to be a painful process for some reason. 88705

What a deal, Drum, Bearings, Seal and new lug nuts. I can't say enough how I think e-trailer has the best prices out there. Drums were packaged nicely, bearings and caps, seals, nuts etc.. were packaged separately in a separate box the same box the drums came in. Drums made in America, bearings made in China, whatever, all brand new and all fit perfectly, thanks everyone at e-trailer :) 135807

I have not yet installed the new hubs/brakes on my trailer. I did open the box and inspect what was shipped. Everything ordered was there and appear to be of good quality. Shipping was fast and I found etrailer prices to be lower than most other internet dealers. Plus other dealers charge for basic shipping ($30+), making this a very cost effective way to add brakes to my trailer. 33768

  • Parts Needed to Add Electric Brakes to a Utility Trailer with a 3500 Lbs Axle and Brake Flanges
  • You will need several items to add electric brakes to your Carry-On Utility trailer. Starting with the trailer you will need a hub and drum that matches the bearings and seal on your trailer spindle and your wheel bolt pattern. The only way to be sure is to check the bearing part numbers and seal part number, but with a 3,500 lbs Dexter axle that has brake mounting flanges you will most likely have the # L44649 Outer and # L68149 inner bearings and # 58846 seal. If these are the correct...

  • Parts Needed to Install Brakes on a Tandem Trailer with Hayes 3,500 lb Axles
  • You are correct, the # 84 spindle parts do interchange to 3,500 lb Hayes axles, as long as it is not a boat trailer axle, so you can use the Dexter parts on these axles. The spindle and hub parts for this application are standard parts that are still used in production, so they should be around for a long time to come. Of course keeping a record of the parts you use will help with replacement in the future. You could always return to Hayes parts in the future, the only thing to keep...

  • Grease Cap and and Double Lip Seal for Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 84546UC3
  • For a single grease cap for hub # 84546UC3 you can use # F001518. The grease cap being slightly larger in diameter than the hub bore is normal to create a tight fit. Grease seal # 58846 is a single lip. Single lip seals do not keep grease in as well as double lip seals. For double lip you would use # RG06-050 for a pair.

  • What Hubs Will Fit Redline 2-Inch x 4-Inch Round Spindle # R40484
  • The spindle you reference, Redline # R40484, is rated for use on 3500-lb axles. This spindle is compatible with both of the hubs you mentioned, parts # 84545BX, which is an idler hub; and # 84546UC3-EZ, which is a 10-inch drum brake hub intended for use with EZ-Lube spindles. The Redline spindle is not an EZ-Lube spindle but it would still work with hub # 84546UC3-EZ. If you prefer a non-EZ-Lube version of this hub you can use part # 84546UC3.

  • What Parts are Needed to Add a Wheel to the Redline Trailer Spindle # SP20484

Adding a hydraulic coupler could affect where the weight distribution...

  • Parts Needed to Add Electric Brakes to a Trailer
  • Everything you listed in your question would be the correct components needed to install brakes on your tandem axle trailer. Instead of the 3 ft 7-way part # H20042 I would go with the 7-ft version part # H20046. You also will want some ring terminals like part # 44-5310A and # DW05702-1. You will probably need 25-30 feet of the 10-2-1. The only thing I would recommend you confirm is that you have the correct hubs picked out. You will want to pull off the hubs you have now and get...

  • Can 10 inch Brake Drums be Used with 13 inch Trailer Wheels
  • There are exceptions to some rules, generally speaking 13 inch trailer wheels will not work with 10 inch hub and drums. Your wheels might be manufactured differently than most and there isn't a clearance issue like on most. I would imagine the clearance between the hub and the rim is pretty tight. I am glad your setup is working well and we appreciate your feedback.
