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"

Recieved drum a day earlier than expected. Was a little concerned when I got it because the bottom of the box was open about 4in. Opened and everything seemed to be there. Almost exact replacement for my 97 prowler 5th wheel. Only difference was original drum had slots on sides to adjust the brakes without having to crawl under the camper. Overall it looks to be very good quality. Just pack the beaings, install grease seal, put on and adjust the brakes. Done!!!!! 805415

I have ordered from etrailer.com on other occasions and for the most part what keeps me coming back in the pricing. They usually have the lowest price for the same original equipment. Be careful if you haven't heard that your product has shipped in a reasonable amount of time, even if their website says they have the item in stock. They will hold your order until they have all the parts to ship. I had not seen a shipped email for almost a week and when I called they said they would have it to ship in mid august, about a month after I ordered. I was told they had a similar item in stock ready to ship now if I wanted to change my order. I appreciated that and did change my order, however, I needed to know that information at the time they knew it because I had to change my vacation plans because I could not get the parts in time to take our 5th wheel. Overall this is a good place to order parts from and I will keep doing so. 412799

Ask the Experts about this Dexter Axle Trailer Hubs and Drums

  • Replacement Parts for Dexter Motorhome Axle 8-133
    The Dexter 8-133 axle according to my contact at Dexter is an old motorhome axle they no longer make. Their tech said the motorhome axles like what you have are designed for one time use so there are not compatible parts made for even replacement brake shoes, so unfortunately we can't help if you are using the axle for the original purpose on a motorhome. If you have transferred this axle to a trailer instead of a motorhome, which is popular to do, then you can replace both the hubs...

  • Replacement Hubs With Bearings 25580 and LM67048 and Brakes Which Fit
    To replace your idler hubs with a hub and drum for electric brakes, what you can do is use Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 8-201-5UC3 and replace its grease seal with # GS-2250DL, which has the same outer diameter as your current seal so it will work for you. This hub has a 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern so finding wheels to fit should be no problem. The idler hub assembly would be # 8-213-5UC1. The hub and drum takes 12" brake assemblies, and the electric brakes that will work are #...

  • How to Select New Hub/Drums to Match Axle Rating, Bolt Pattern and Bearing Set
    On Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 8-201-5UC3 the outer diameter of the hub center is 3-3/16-inches at the top/outer surface, tapering to 3-5/16-inches at the base near the hub face. These dimensions, which I took myself in our warehouse, are noted on the photo I prepared for you. Matching up new hubs requires you to confirm the axle weight rating, the wheel bolt pattern and the bearing set used in the hubs. For a hub to fit on your existing spindles it must use the same inner...

    Yes, The Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly part # 8-201-5UC3 is the genuine Dexter Hub and Drum assembly part K08-201-90. We do get the part directly from Dexter. Dexter does not manufacturer their bearings and seals for there hubs, but use the highest quality products from vendors with their products.

  • Possible Replacement Hub for Dexter Hub 8-133
    You will need to get the other bearing number from inside your current hubs before we can pick you out replacement hubs. Most likely the outer bearing you pulled is a LM67048 and the inner you have is a 25580 which would mean that the # 8-201-5UC3 would be the correct size hub and drum for you. This hub has a bolt pattern of 6 on 5-1/2 inch and would not work with your current wheels. I attached a page that has all of the wheels and tires we offer in that bolt pattern.

  • How to Pick Out a Trailer Hub and Drum and Then Brake Assembly to Fit It
    The hub part # 8-201-5UC3 is a 12 by 2 inch drum/hub that calls for a brake assembly that measures the same. The problem is that the 12x2 inch brake assemblies we carry are all 5-bolt flange assemblies. It would be pretty unlikely that the hub you mentioned would be the correct fit for a spindle that only has a 4 bolt flange so I wonder if maybe you need a different hub actually. In order to pick out the correct hub assembly for a trailer you are going to need know a few key pieces...

  • What is the Width of Dexter 8-201 Brake Drum?

  • What Hub & Drum Assembly Fits LM67048 Trailer Bearings
    The trailer hub you referenced, # 8-174-5UC3, uses outer bearing # 15123 so it will not fit your trailer. While the outer bearing information helps, it is only one piece of the puzzle in getting you the right part. Another key piece is the inner bearing size which is stamped on the bearing, if you cannot find the bearing number, then you will need to measure to get the right bearing size. You will need a digital caliper like Item # PTW80157 to measure the spindle at the bearing seats....

  • 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...

  • Replacement Trailer Hub/Drum With 8-201 Casting Number On Hub
    The replacement hub/drum you mentioned, part # 8-201-5UC3 is rated for a 5200 lb axle (a de-rated 6000 lb axle). That particular hub/drum is compatible with a 25580 inner and a LM67048 outer wheel bearing. If your axle is indeed rated for 6K and uses a 25580 inner and 15123 outer wheel bearing. If that's the case, you'd need the # 8-201-9UC3-EZ hub/drum. The different outer bearing is what de-rates the hub. The hubs include the races, bearings, grease seals, lug nuts and grease caps...

  • Recommended Hub Assemblies for Old Trailer with Bearings 25580 and LM67048

This will match your bearings so will fit your axle spindles and will have the correct cap, race, bearings, and seal for a perfect fit.

To see how to manually adjust trailer brake assemblies check out the video I attached, fast-forward to the 4:35 mark of the video.

  • How to Determine Correct Axle Capacity for Brake Replacement
    The information you've provided is a good start to narrowing down what size axle you have. The GVWR of 9055-lbs on tandem axles tells me they are likely either 5200-lb or 6000-lb axles. The bolt pattern of 6 x 5.5 is also consistent with that, as is knowing that the drums are 8-201 (which are for the 5200-lb/6000-lb axles). The best and most fail-safe way to determine the actual capacity of the axle is going to be by checking the bearings that are on the hubs, but both axles are going to...
