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"

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (49 Customer Reviews)

by:

So my 8 year old trailer had worn bearings and tires. I purchased wheels, tires and the CE Smith bearing kit from ETrailer.

My order arrived in 3-4 days and I received a follow up email. The wheel/tire combo is bolt on ready and OEM to my trailer. The bearing kit comes in a sealed plastic case and is a drop in part (pre greased). So in less than an hour I had a fresh trailer.

I drove my trailer to the beach (a 600+ mile round trip) loaded down. I had zero issues, so I am thrilled!

Only time will tell overall, but ETrailer is earning my trust. Cheers




by:

Tab that keeps lid shut arrived broken, making the case not able to close Bearings have grease on the outside but are not packed properly.
Great idea on a whole hub kit for on the road but not executed well.

Nice spare hub kit. I don't even have to pack the bearings. I hope I never need it but as compact as it is I will store it under my truck's rear seat and it may save me some grief someday. I love the plastic carry case. Even came with lug nuts.




by:

Perfect fit for my trailer. Video on how to select the correct hub was very helpful.




by:

The staff at etrailer.com is awesome, I received my C.E. Smith trailer hud kit and everything is perfect. With all the different trailer axle configurations they go out of there way to try and. Are sure you have exactly what up you need and when you have an issue and need to return an item they work with you, no question asked.

Thank you for all the support and fast delivery. I will definitely recommend and purchase all trailer needs from etrailer.com Again!




by:

Great quality products at reasonable prices. Ordered them on a Monday, and products were at my door by Thursday!!




by:

Very satisfied with my order, quick delivery, packaged well in shipping box, hub in its plastic box. The hub and bearings were greased, hub was easy to install. Extremely pleased with etrailer’s service.




by:

It’s delivered ready to go. Greased up and ready to install immediately. The carrying case keeps everything together. This is perfect for a road traveler who wants some spare parts for on the road repairs.




by:

Very happy with my first shopping experience. They had hubs in stock that I couldn’t find anywhere else on the internet. Everyone else had them on back order. The items shipped pretty quickly. The only reason I gave 4 stars and not 5 was because I was initially given an expected ship and delivery date two days earlier than when the parts were actually delivered.




by:

Ordered Monday delivered Thursday on the trailer Friday 150 miles round trip to the lake Saturday great product




by:

Outstanding site with a very easy to use product finder. These hub assemblies come with the bearings prepacked and shipped in its own hard plastic case. Only site I was able to quickly and easily find the hubs I needed for my trailer. Ordered on Sunday and arrived on Tuesday. Will definitely use etrailer.com again for any of my trailer needs.




by:

Have used just yet but they look like what advertised. Quick delivery time.




by:

Good fit and good quality




by:

The hubs seem like excellent replacements for my 30 year old trailer. It came with a nice hard case that I plan on using with my old hubs for an emergency kit. I docked 2 stars because both bearings weren't properly packed. Of course I damaged the grease seals during removal forcing me to order 2 new seals. Luckily grease seals are relatively cheap but still highly disappointed that the manufacturer over looked a vital part. I would still recommend this kit but be prepared to pack the bearings. I rarely write reviews but I hope this review helps someone in the future from making a costly and potentially dangerous mistake.




by:

Come with a strong case looks like it should hold for a long time.came with everything needed. Dont need the extra lugs or cap but they do come with it and a cotter pin.




by:

New hub works great and fits the tapered spindle on our Calkins boat trailer perfectly. Very smooth wheel bearing rotation and easy to adjust. Arrived pre-packed with just the right amount of marine grease. Dust cap is a very tight fit and requires a pretty good tap to seat, so I'm confident that it'll keep the water out. Includes a zerk fitting to inject more grease if needed in the future.




by:

Easy to install. Exactly what I needed
My old hubs were not bad. Whoever had the boat before me kept them greased well. Just took off wheels then nuts and washer that holds hub on and slide new one on. They are heavily pre greased some will push out the front which is fine just be prepared. So far everything is great. Came with new koter pin and nice case. I put my old hubs in the cases and will have in case of emergency. Highly recommend




by:

Perfect package for an emergency repair. Fortunately I have not had to use it since the hubs and bearings I bought from etrailer.com have worked flawlessly. Many local trips and one 1,500 mile trip with no problems at all.




by:

I'm glad I bought wheel hub and bearings thru these folk at etrailer. The hub assembly was sent right out, even with the Covid lock down. The product itself was ready to go// I'm a happy guy.




by:

First time order something like this online. Finding, ordering was excellent. Part arrived quickly and has been working for over a year now.
Great Service,
Thanks




by:

Although I love the convenience of the whole kit, the fact that the bearings were not packed disappointed me, they did have grease on them but that is not the same. Outers were easy but trashed the grease seals to take the inners out and pack them correctly.




by:

Outstanding service!! Hubs were exactly what I needed. Installation video and packaging were excellent.




by:

I have ordered many items from etrailer over the last couple of years. Everything has been shipped on time, packaged well and exactly as advertised. I could not be happier with this company. I've read the reviews and must say that anything negative must be extremely rare. I've had nothing but a good experience each and every time. Thanks to Kat in customer service. Very attentive.




by:

GREAT customer service. I actually tried to order a different manufacturer's hubs but they were out of stock! Got an email within an hour of placing the order with recommendation of these CE Smith Hubs. They were CHEAPER! They were high quality and pre-greased!! Saved over $60.00 overall on my order! Cant say enough good!




by:

Bought this to carry as a spare in case of breakdown on long trips. I really like that it has a grease fitting between the seal and inner bearing. Also like the case it comes in. Very satisfied with this purchase.

  • Replacement Trailer Hubs for a 2015 Casita Travel Trailer
    In order to determine whether or not the CE Smith Trailer Hub Assembly part # CE13511 will fit your trailer, I would need to know the bearing numbers/measurements and the grease seal numbers/measurements on the trailer hubs you have now. There are two ways to obtain this information. You can take the hubs apart and look for part numbers/measure the spindle or you can provide me with the VIN and I can call the trailer manufacturer and ask them what your bearings/seals are.

    CE Smith Trailer Hub Assembly w/ Carrying Case for 3,500-lb Axles - 5 on 4-1/2 - Pre-Greased Item # CE13511 will work with 14 inch wheels. The maximum wheel size it is compatible with is a 15 inch but you aren't limited to using just 15 inch wheels with this hub. So 14 inch wheels will work well too! Regarding the spindles if there is any discoloration of the metal or cuts, scrapes, or any other damage to them then they should not be used or, at the very least, if you are not sure have...

    The hub flange outer diameter on the CE Smith Trailer Hub Assembly w/ Carrying Case for 3,500-lb Axles - 5 on 4-1/2 - Pre-Greased # CE13511 is 6-1/2". I went out to the warehouse and measured the hub height on the grease seal side. Measuring from the highest point where the wheel studs are is 1-1/2". Measuring from the depressed spot in between the wheel studs is 2". I have attached a video review as well as a diagram showing the measurements for your reference.

  • Replacement 3500 Spindles for Lund Boat Trailer
    If the spindle is damaged, it'll need to be replaced. The # CE13511 CE Smith hub is compatible with a 3500 lb axle that uses an L68149 inner/L44649 outer wheel bearing and a 10-19 grease seal. For a spindle, you'll need a 3500 lb spindle, but the exact spindle needed will depend on your axle tube and how the current spindles are attached. I'll link to our 3500 lb spindles, but installing a trailer spindle is NOT a do-it-yourself job. Because the old spindle needs to be cut off and the...

  • Which Replacement Hub for Shoreland'r SLR22L Boat Trailer
    According to Shorlandr, your SLR22L trailer uses hubs with a L44649 inner and outer bearing. The # CE13511 hub you mentioned uses a different inner bearing, so it won't work for you. The good news is that the # CE13311 is the correct hub, assuming your existing hub has a 5 lug on a 4-1/2 inch bolt circle. Or, even better, since it's a boat trailer we offer a corrosion resistant galvanized version of the 5 on 4-1/2 as well, available as part # CE13315. The replacement hubs include 1/2-20...

  • Hub Replacement Recommendation for DICO Hub part 45264
    Yes, the CE Smith Trailer Hub part # CE13511 will fit as a replacement for your DICO hub 45264 but you will need to use a different seal as we have found that your spindle diameter is slightly different which means you need the # 168255TB as well.

  • Will the CE Smith CE13511 Replace a Dico 45264 Hub?
    From what I could find out about the Dico 45264 hub, the CE Smith # CE13511 will be a good replacement. That being said, the Dico hubs did utilize a different size seal than any of our offerings would come with as a standard. You will also need the Dexter Double Lip Seal # 168255TB to go along with the # CE13511 to get everything working properly.

  • Will the CE Smith CE13511 replace a Titan 45264 Hub?
    Titan acquired Dico some time ago, so the Titan 45264 hub you have will actually be the exact same as the Dico 45264. So with that being said, the CE Smith # CE13511 will be a good replacement. However, the Titan/Dico hubs did utilize a different size seal than any of our offerings would come with as a standard. You will also need the Dexter Double Lip Seal # 168255TB to go along with the # CE13511 to get everything working properly.

It will fit your wheels with the 5-on-4-1/2 bolt pattern. This spare hub kit includes the pre-greased hub along with bearings, races, grease seal, grease cap, lug nuts, and cotter pin (all in a handy case) so it makes for a perfect item to carry along with you, just in case.

  • 3,500 lb Capacity Idler Hub Recommendation that Comes with Marine-Grade Grease
    I have a solution for you, but the part # AKIHUB-545-35-K does not come with marine grade grease. Instead you would want the part # CE13511 as it is essentially the same spec hub in terms of bolt pattern and what spindle it fits except it does come with marine-grade grease.

  • How to Match Replacement Hub to Ensure Compatibility
    Selecting a compatible hub requires matching a few factors, among these the bearings, which must match in order for the hub to fit on your spindles.

    In order to find the correct grease seal and cap you will need to take some measurements since you cannot see a part number. I recommend using a digital caliper like the # PTW80157 to get accurate measurements. For the grease seal, you will need to measure the grease seal seat which will give you the inner diameter of the correct grease seal. For the cap, you will need to measure the center of the hub where the grease cap/dust cover fits. Also, the # L68111 is actually the replacement...

    To select the correct replacement hub I would either need to know the inner and outer bearing numbers stamped into the sides of the bearings or the measurements of the spindle.

It looks like hub # AKIHUB-545-35-G-EZ-K will work but you would need a different seal, # 168255TB. We have a will call for local customers...
