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 all the right ones and most were Dexter oem parts. The only problem I had was putting the bolts in the frame end of the spring perch. It was easier to take the spring loose from the axle, put the bolt in ,then bolt it back to the axle. I intend to buy all of my future trailer parts from etrailer.

  • Will etrailer 12 x 2 Inch Trailer Brakes Fit 5 Spoke Utility Hub and Drum # 8-174-5UC3
    Yes, the 12 x 2 inch brakes that you have purchased, # AKEBRK-7R-SA and # AKEBRK-7L-SA, will fit drum # 8-174-5UC3. This is a 5 spoke utility hub and drum assembly that uses inner bearing 25580 and outer bearing 15123 so if that is what you have then this assembly will work.

  • Replacing Dexter 5 Spoke Utility Hub with Hub and Drum that has Standard Bolt Pattern
    It sounds like you are wanting to replace a 5 spoke utility hub and drum like # 8-174-5UC3 on your trailer with a traditional hub that features a standard bolt pattern. In order to see if there is a compatible replacement available, you will just want to first pull the existing hub and check for the bearing numbers that are used. The numbers should be stamped right inside the bearings themselves. You can also take a few measurements along the spindle where they sit if you are unable to...

    The Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly - 6,000-lb and 7,000-lb Axles - 12" - 5 Spoke Utility # 8-174-5UC3 are the only hubs we have with that bolt pattern to fit your wheels. Based on the measurements you gave, you will then use the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with E-Z Lube Spindles - 89" Long - 6,000 lbs # 8327830. From the sound of where you measured to the center of your tire, any offset if you have one won't be much and will work with this combination. Then if you have electric...

  • Replacement Hubs for a Hudson Bros. Trailer with 5-Spoke Utility Hubs
    Dexter hub # 8-174-5UC3 uses the 5-spoke utility bolt pattern so it is uncommon just like the hub you have. If your existing hub uses inner bearing 25580 and outer bearing 15123 with a seal inner diameter of 2-1/8 inches then this hub is a likely fit. The bearing numbers and seal are key.

    The Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly, part # 8-174-5UC3, includes the lug nuts and rim clamps that hold the wheel on to the hub. The lug nuts are part # 916N and have a 9/16-inch fine thread. The replacement stud that is installed in the hub portion of the # 8-174-5UC3 hub and drum assembly is the Screw-In Wheel Stud, part # 25-11.

  • Recommended Spindle For # 8-174-5UC3 Trailer Hub And Drum Assembly
    The spindle that would work with the hub # 8-174-5UC3 you mentioned is the TruRyde Spindle, part # TRU57FR. This spindle includes the washer, castle nut, and pin. This has a 2,500 lb capacity. I have attached a product review video for this spindle you can check out. If you are interested in a spindle that has the EZ lube zerk fitting, I recommend part # TRU37FR. This has the brake mounting flange attached to the spindle.

  • Grease Seal Recommendation for Trailer Hub with Bearing 15123

  • Replacement 5 Spoke Utility Hub for Home Built Trailer
    The Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 8-174-5UC3 referenced in your question uses the same inner bearing # 25580 as your existing hub assembly but a slightly different outer bearing # 15123. With that being said, this particular outer bearing has the same 1.25 inch inner diameter as the # LM67048 that your current hub uses, so this hub will still fit the spindle on your trailer. This Dexter Hub also uses the same 10-10 grease seal, so this hub will work great and there should be no...

For a tool to drive this cap on you would want the part # 290-992. If you were looking for Bearing Buddies for this hub you would want part # BB2441.

  • What to Inspect on Trailer Brakes, Drums, and Bearings
    Starting with the brakes if the pads on the shoes are cracked or if the wear indicators are showing then they should be replaced. If there are no wear indicators and you notice weak braking with the brakes adjusted out then they would need to be replaced. For magnets if you can see the copper windings coming through the magnets will need to be replaced. For the drums look for any discoloration, scoring, cuts, scrapes, gashes, and things like that. If present then the drums should...

  • Replacement Hubs to Fit Bearings 25580 and LM67048 with 5-Spoke Utility Bolt Pattern
    The only 5-spoke utility hub we carry is part # 8-174-5UC3 which is a hub and drum assembly. The bearing numbers are # 25580 and # 15123. Obviously this is a different outer bearing number than what you have but it has the same inner diameter as # LM67048 so it still fits your spindles and will work for you. We don't carry an idler hub with that bolt pattern. If you want to use and idler hub on one axle and a hub and drum assembly on the other you do have the option of changing your...

  • Replacement Rim Clamps and Wheel Bolts for 5 Spoke Utility Hub
    By 'blocks', I'm assuming you're speaking of rim clamps, which we sell individually as part # 15-2. The 5 spoke utility rims we offer, part # 8-174-5UC3 use wheel studs, not bolts. To determine if we carry a wheel bolt that would work for you, I'd need to know the diameter, whether the existing bolts use a fine or a coarse thread and the length of the wheel bolts currently used with your hubs. I've linked you to our selection of wheel bolts, you can compare your bolts to these or simply...

  • Type and Size of Wheel Studs Used on Dexter Hub/Drum # 8-174-5UC3
    The Dexter Hub/ Drum Assembly you referenced, part # 8-174-5UC3 uses 9/16 x 3 screw-in wheel studs, like part # 25-11. We do not offer a 1/2 x 3 screw-in wheel stud, nor do our suppliers offer one. To remove the wheel studs, you would use two lug nuts jammed together, like a reverse of the procedure shown in the video I will link you to.

  • Should I Use the Dexter Trailer Hub/Drum with 5 Lug Utility Instead of 8 on 6-1/2 Inch Bolt Pattern
    The Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly part # 8-174-5UC3 uses a very odd 5 lug bolt pattern that the vast majority of trailer wheels will not accommodate therefore this is a major disadvantage over the standard 8 on 6-1/2" bolt pattern. The 5 lug bolt pattern that the above uses is not the same as the common 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern if that is what you were thinking. The minimal savings that you incur would be soon offset by the difficulty of find a matching wheel/tire. I recommend...

  • Replacing Wheels on a Trailer with 5 Spoke Utility Hubs and 8-14.5 Size Tires
    What you have on your trailer is called a 5 spoke utility hub, like part # 8-174-5UC3. They're pretty common on mobile homes so I'm guessing this is where your axle came from. This is also evidenced by your 8-14.5 tires since they're often on mobile homes as well. In order to replace the rims with a different bolt pattern you need to replace the hubs. Mobile home axles are often hard to find replacement parts for so there may not be anything available without replaing the entire axle....

    Typically mobile home axles use spindles that are very hard to fit hub/drums to because they are designed for one time use. To determine if the # 8-174-5UC3 would fit you would need to remove your current hubs and get some exact measurement of the spindle. Where the seal rides needs to be 2-1/8 or 2-1/4 inches in diameter. Where the inner bearing rides needs to be 1.750 inches and where the outer bearing rides needs to be 1.25 inches.

If that is the case then you can use the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly part # AKIHUB-655-6-K and the 10-10 Grease or Oil Double-Lip Seals part # RG06-090 to switch to a more common 6 on 5-1/2" bolt pattern.

  • Removing Broken Studs in Hubs on a Mobile Home Hub Assembly and Replacement Parts Information Needed
    According to my technical contact at Dexter Axle the studs on a mobile home axle are a screw in style of stud. To remove and extract the stud without damaging the existing threads for the studs would be very difficult. It is possible to drill out the studs and use a tap system, but make sure not to damage the existing stud threads on the hub. If the threads are damaged then using replacement studs would not be a realistic solution. Their recommendation would be replace the entire hub...
