Axle Dimensions

Hub Face and Spring Center Measurements on Standard Trailer Axle

There are multiple ways to measure the length of an axle beam, but the hub-face-to-hub-face and spring-center-to-spring-center lengths are the most accurate. Hub face (A) refers to the length of the axle measured from the base of one wheel stud to the base of the wheel stud on the opposite side of the axle (when hubs are mounted on the beam).


The spring center (B) is the approximate width of your trailer. It is measured from the center of the spring seat on one side of the axle to the center of the seat on the other. This axle beam comes with the spring seats welded on.


Hub Face and Spring Center Measurements on Standard Trailer Axle

Another helpful measurement to have is the flange-to-flange (C) length, which is measured from the outside of one brake flange to the outside of the one opposite. This length may be easy to obtain if you are replacing an axle, but it's important to note that this measurement is not the preferred method for determining which axle will best fit your trailer.


If you are replacing your trailer's axle, you should be able to figure out which type you need by determining your trailer's capacity, the bolt pattern of your wheels, the brake type and the aforementioned lengths.


Dexter Axles

Dexter axles are made of high-strength steel and come with spindles and spring seats welded on. The spring seats are attached to the underside of the axle so that the leaf springs (sold separately) can mount beneath the axle. The result of this underslung design is a trailer that rides a bit lower for quick and easy loading and unloading.


Each axle is manufactured to create a certain camber angle. This ensures that the angle of the wheels is correct for your towing needs. Because the primary concern when towing is maintaining controlled, in-line movement, each axle is made so that your trailer's tires will run along the pavement evenly, with contact across the width of the tread. The result is excellent straight-line acceleration for steady, in-line tracking. You might notice the bend near the center of the axle; this is what ensures the proper camber angle. Having the center ride a bit higher and the sides of the axle bent lower allows the axle to give just enough to compensate for the load.


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"

The parts were well protected and boxed during shipping. The parts were as described on the site. The bearings all came from China which would not have been my first choice but hopefully will be suitable. I would recommend this seller. 650997

The center to center distance was 1 different for my trailer. I cut the brackets off and rewelded the brackets in the new location. The axle has worked well and I have had no problem. As I use the trailer only a couple of times a year the bearings that came with the axle have been fine so far.

I ordered several items for a trailer I am rebuilding. One thing i ordered was an axle with hubs. When the axle arrived there were no hubs and I was worried. But when the second box arrived there were the hubs I was expecting. Thank you etrailer.com your pics and shipping saved me over $200 on a single axle. 182546

Purchased a trailer axle with hubs. I had lost a left wheel, hub and all and was lost at a loss as to how to proceed with fixing the bent, now damaged left spindle. Finding the complete axle and hub set up at etrailer was a God sent. The removal of the old and installation of the new axle was easy. Slide it in, tighten up the u-blots and you're home. A side positive was that my new axle had a pre-load bend in it and also preset for toe in. Toe In like on your car to keep it running straight down the road.

We haul the trailer to Chicago often. The axle is still in service and giving us no concern for worry. In fact, the trailer tracks better than it ever did using your axle setup.

  • Can Hub and Brake Drum Be Replaced with Idler Hub on Tandem Axle Trailer
    The short answer to both of your questions is yes. You can remove the backing plate or brake assembly and use the existing hub with integrated drum by itself, or, you can simply replace it with an idler hub. Based on the photos, I would suggest carefully inspecting your hubs/drums, looking for any scoring both the armature and the shoe surface. I've linked a video at the bottom of the page that will show you the process in detail. If you find any abnormalities, your best bet is to replace...

  • Does It Matter If the Spring Center and Hub Face Is Different When Replacing A Trailer Axle
    When selecting the correct replacement axle for a utility trailer you will need to know both the hub face (wheel center) and spring center measurements. For example, if your current hub face measurement is 88" and you replace this with an axle that has an 89" hub face measurement then the wheel/tire will stick out 1/2" more on each side. That said, this would not have any negative affect on the trailer so long as all axles were the same. In regards to spring center spacing, this is...

  • Which Way Should Bow of Trailer Axle Face When Installed on Trailer
    Trailer axles are supposed to have a bow in them that faces down towards the ground. With the weight of the trailer normally this flattens out slightly and gives you the correct camber you need. Whoever flipped your axle should have used an over under kit like the # K71-384-00 to move the springs to the other side of the axle while still allowing it to face the right direction. Flipping them like they did is why your tires are wearing like you mentioned. All of the axles we have like...

  • What Measurements are Needed for Picking Out New Trailer Axles

    The final width (with tires) of the Dexter Trailer Axle, # 35545I-EZ-89, will depend on the wheel and tire size you intend to use. You would simply add the width of one tire (assuming your wheels have a zero offset) to the 89 inch hub face dimension of this axle to find the total width.
