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"

These brake drums appear to be excellent quality parts, all genuine Dexter replacements. These are all Made in USA, replacing the ones on my trailer that are made in China. The reason for three stars is the drums were poorly packaged, causing light to moderate surface marking, and some paint removal. One of the drums also exhibited surface corrosion on the drum ID and armature surface, as well as the inner bearing recess. The drums were wrapped with a single sheet of brown paper, then shipped two per shipping carton, with no additional protection. The damage is not severe enough to warrant return of these heavy items, but I am disappointed in Etrailer's minimalistic packaging process. 617905

Delivery was as promised. Quality of the Dexter hub/drum was excellent as expected. Great job eTrailer! 611357

- 8-201-5

Bad: Read the fine print on etrailer before you purchase. I paid with a debit card. It took 2 months for my hubs to be shipped. I thought they charged my card at the time of purchase. They charged 2 months later. This would of been OK if it were a credit card. They almost made me bounce a check by charging my debit card 2 months later. Ok, heres my mistake, I ordered the wrong thing. I am willing to pay the $28 shipping back to you. They charged $28 shipping and a fee of $38. My bill was $224. I was refunded $158. I will not do business with them again. Wonder if they will delete this comment. Good: They are very polite. 465558

Packaging was extensively torn up, and someone attempted to tape it back together. The contents were not packed tightly inside the boxes. The parts were as ordered, and shipping time was as quoted. x Over all I am only giving the rating a 4 star due to the poor packaging. Had the order been something more fragile I question as to whether it would have arrived safely. 449518

One of my trailer's four brake drums cracked which initiated a complete brake system inspection and repair. Having sourced supplies from e-trailer previously, I knew I could get everything I needed quickly and all would be superior quality. Surprisingly, it was more economical to do a complete brake assembly replacement on all four wheels rather than a selective piece/part upgrade on the 12 year old systems. An exact fit meant the whole job was done in a couple of hours. 159089

  • Replacement Brakes and Hub Assemblies for Lippert 5,200 Pound Axle
    For your trailer the drums you need are # 8-201-5. They're designed to fit bearings # 25580 and # LM67048 with the 2-1/4 inch seal # GS-2250DL. For brakes I recommend # AKEBRK-7-SA. Both the left and right sides are included. They are side specific so you'll want to pay attention to the labels when installing. They're self-adjusting brakes so they'll need to be adjusted when you install them and then never again. The grease cap to fit the hubs is # RG04-080 if you have E-Z lube...

  • Replacement Seal, Bearings, and Hub Assemblies For Dexter Axle 5200 lb
    For your replacement parts, you will want the Replacement Trailer Hub Bearing # 25580 for your inner bearing and outer bearing # LM67048. For a seal, you will want # GS-2125DL or # RG06-090. If you want the entire hub assembly, we have the Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 5,200-lb and 6,000-lb Axles - 6 on 5-1/2 # 8-213-5UC1 or the hub and drum assembly # 8-201-5.

  • Will Dexter Hub Fit On An Axletek Backing Plate And Brake Assembly?
    Yes. A Dexter hub like # 8-201-5 that is 12x2 will be compatible with an Axle Teknology brake assembly and backing plate like # AKEBRK-7-SA. The brake assemblies just need to be compatible with your mounting flange, but the drum/hubs need to have the proper bearing fit for your spindle. If the parts are a correct fit, you won't have any issues using them together as they are compatible.

  • Recommended Lug Nuts for Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 8-201-5
    The Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 8-201-5 referenced in your question will use standard 1/2 inch thread lug nuts like the CE Smith # CE11051. This particular trailer hub and drum assembly is designed for 5,200 pound axles and uses the # 25580 inner bearing and # LM67048 outer bearing, which are not included. I have attached a short video demonstration on this hub that you can also check out.

  • Replacement Trailer Brake Assemblies for 8-201 Dexter Hub and Drums on 2004 Gulfstream Canyon
    To replace the brake assemblies for your 2004 Gulfstream Canyon, with Dexter axle and 8-201 hub and drums, I recommend the Electric Trailer Brake Assembly, Self-Adjusting # AKEBRK-7L-SA for the left-hand side and # AKEBRK-7R-SA for the right-hand side. These brakes are designed for trailer axles from 5,200 pounds to 7,000 pounds and will fit your 12 inch x 2 inch drums. The brake assemblies are self-adjusting so you will not need to make adjustments to the brakes. I have attached a...

  • Replacement Hubs and Electric Brakes for 2003 Airstream Classic Trailer
    Based on my research, the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 8-201-5 will replace the 3160121 drums on your 2003 Airstream Classic. This assembly is designed for 5,200 pound axles and features a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern. I have attached an article on how to measure your bolt pattern so you can ensure this will be the correct fit. The hub uses # 25580 inner bearing and # LM67048. I also recommend verifying the bearings on your existing hubs so you can be sure this is a perfect match....

  • Idler Hub to Fit Trailer with 25580 and LM67048 Bearings
    Hub and drum assembly # 8-201-5 will fit your spindles but like you said the bolt pattern is 6 on 5-1/2. We don't carry a hub that fits # 25580 inner bearing and # LM67048 outer bearing wth a 5 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern. With that pattern I'm guessing you have a mobile home axle. I recommend upgrading to the 6 lug hubs and replacing your wheels as well. Part # 8-201-5 is a hub and drum assembly and you mentioned you're looking for idler hubs. If you only need the idler with no brake...

  • Trailer Hub and Drum Recommendation for Replacing Hub with Bearings 25580, LM67048
    Actually the bearing info you listed indicates you have a very standard number 42 spindle which we have plenty of fits for. Only issue is that you'd need to go with a 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern. So for that you'd want the part # 8-201-5 with the bearing kit # BK3-300 and grease cap # RG04-060. Then for brake assemblies part # AKEBRK-7-SA which is a kit for both sides of the axle.

  • Hub and Drum Assembly for 6000 lb Axle
    Given the information you have provided, the Trailer Hub and Drum, part # 8-201-5UC3 is what you are needing. This assumes that the brake assemblies you have are 12 inch. The bearings, cap, and seals are included with the Hub and drum. However, this hub wouldn't be compatible with a 15 inch wheel, which is what you were wanting because you already have a set of tires for a 15 inch wheel. You'll need to go up in size to a 16 inch wheel/tire combo. You'll want to choose a wheel/tire...

  • Hub and Drum Assembly for Hubs with Bearings 25580 and LM67048, and Grease Seal 10-10
    Yes it will! Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 8-201-5 is a fit if you have inner bearing # 25580, outer bearing # LM67048 and grease seal 10-10, which is part # RG06-090. That grease seal is for EZ Lube axles so the correct grease cap would be # RG04-080. Those parts do not come with this assembly, you would need to get them separately. For races you need # 25520 for the inner bearing and # LM67010 for the outer bearing. This hub and drum is rated for 5,200 lbs and has a 6 on 5-1/2"...

From the part of the hub that will be closest to the trailer out to the surface where the wheel mounts is approximately 4-1/2 inches. I have included a picture attempting to show this.

  • Recommended Triple Axle System with ABS Braking System
    It doesn't sound to me like you need to replace your axles. The hub/drum assemblies you referenced are for 5200 lb axles, so I can reuse your hubs # 8-201-5. My recommendation is to change out your brake assemblies to the Dexter Hydraulic Drum Brake Kit - Duo Servo - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 7,000 lbs # 23-336-337 with the brake line kit # 24TR-BLKIT. Then you can use the Tuson 4 Channel Towable Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) for Hydraulic Drum Brakes # 335ABS-DLNE-1000...

  • Which Grease Caps fit Trailer Hub Part # 8-201-5
    For hub 8-201-5 you will need 2.44 inch OD drive in caps. We have several caps available for this size like part # RG04-060, which is a standard cap, or part # RG04-080, which have removable plugs for checking grease or bearings.

  • What Grease Seal Will Fit With Bearing # LM67048
    The bearing you referenced, part # LM67048, we show as an OUTER bearing for applications in hub # 8-201-5. We offer this bearing as part of a kit along with inner bearing # 25580 and seal # GS-2125DL; the part number for the complete kit is # BK3-310. This included GS-2125DL seal has an inner diameter of 2.125 inches; if you can measure your spindle with a digital caliper you can verify the fit. The linked photo will show you where to measure.

  • Replacement Seal for a Dexter 8-201 Hub and Drum
    It sounds like the hub you have on your 2005 Nash 22M is the Dexter Trailer hub and drum part # 8-201-5. This hub has inner/outer bearings of 25580/ LM67048 respectively, and a seal of 10-1 for a single lip seal or a 10-10 for a double lip. The correct and recommended seal part number you would need is the Grease Seal part # GS-212DL. You will see that the dimensions are very close to the # GS-2250DL that you referenced. Seals can be difficult to get dimensions on. I attached a link...

  • Replacement Hub and Drum and Hydraulic Brakes for a Cronkite Tandem Axle Trailer
    Trailer hub and drum assembly # 8-201-5 does match your bearings. I am fairly certain you have 5,200 pound axles and not 3500 pound axles since all of the parts you need are for higher rated axles than 3500 pounds. The races come already pressed into the hub. If your wheels have a 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern then this is the hub for you. This hub and drum takes 12 x 2 inch brakes. The brake assemblies that fit and that are also rated for 5200 pound axles are # 23-324 for the left and # 23-325...

  • Replacement Hub Drum for 5200 lb Dexter Axle on 1971 Camper
    Good question. The spindles of your trailer could be three possible sizes. If you pull your hubs and look at the bearings (both inner and outer) as well as the seal, there should be a number on the face of each one. If you can match those bearings and seals in one the options listed below then you will have a perfect fit. If not, let me know the numbers and I'll see if there is another compatible bearing. If you can't find bearing numbers, then you will need to measure your spindles...

  • How to Select Replacement Hub/Drums and Brakes
    When you need to select replacement hubs/drums you want to match up a few things; the axle weight rating, the hub/drum size, the bearings used in the hub and the wheel bolt pattern. A new hub has to use the same inner and outer bearings in order for it to fit properly on your spindles, and of course it also has to be rated to match the axle capacity - for an example, a 2000-lb axle will need two hubs each rated for 1000-lbs. On the page I linked for you are displayed the 6-on-5-1/2...
