Corrosion Resistance for Marine Use

This trailer hub-and-drum assembly has a zinc coating that resists corrosion, making it ideal for use on your boat or snowmobile trailer. All GAL-DEX hubs and drums undergo a test in which they are sprayed with a 5-percent salt solution to determine corrosion resistance over time. These products are able to withstand 500 hours of constant exposure to the saltwater mist. This 500-hour salt spray rating indicates that a product is not only durable enough to last in freshwater environments, but it can also be used on trailers that come into contact with saltwater.


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"

Video Transcript for Dexter Axle Trailer Hubs and Drums - Hub with Integrated Drum - 8-247-50 Review

Today we're going to review part number 8-247-50, this is the Dexter trailer hub and drum for 3,500-pounds axles, has the five on four and a half-inch bolt pattern, and has the Galdex finish. This is a marine-grade trailer hub and drum assembly that'll fit axles with drum brakes. It does include the inner and outer races, they are all pre-installed. It does require bearings, grease seal, grease cap and lug nuts that we do sell separately. If you notice, has a silver finish to it, this is the Galdex finish, which is a zinc plating that they use on the hub and and the studs, has a 500-hour salt spray rating. It is ideal for use on a boat or snowmobile trailer and it is durable enough for salt water applications. Again, the application for this hub and drum is 3,500-pound axles with the number 84 spindles and the drum brakes. The drum diameter or the drum dimension is 10 inches in diameter and the width is two and a quarter inches wide. This is designed to work with the electric and hydraulic brake assemblies of the same size.

I just want to give you an idea of that measurement. Ten inches is measured on the the inside and then the width would be two and a quarter inches. The bolt pattern on this is a five on four and a half-inch bolt pattern. The wheel stud size uses a half-inch by 20 lug nuts. The weight capacity on one of these hubs is 1,750 pounds, so when you combine it with one on each side, it'll give you your total of 3,500 pounds. And again, I mentioned the bearings and the grease seal, the grease cap and lug nuts are all sold separately, and actually, if you go to product page of this part number, it would list the part numbers that you would need, too, if you need to get all those parts, also. That should do it for the review on part number 8-247-50, the Dexter trailer hub and drum for3,500-pound axles with the five on four and a half-inch bolt pattern. .

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hubs and Drum?


  • Replacement Galvanized Hub and Drum Assemblies for Boat Trailer w/Bearings L68149 and L44649
  • We have numerous hub and drum assemblies that use inner bearing L68149 and outer bearing L44649. I have included a link to them for you. There are several different bolt patterns for hubs that take those bearings. The most common is a 5 on 4-1/2 like # 8-247-50 but to be sure you can measure for bolt pattern using the help article I have linked. The race numbers might not be an exact match but that is because they match the bearings AND the hubs so as long as the bearing numbers are...

  • Is Redline Trailer # 84 Spindle a Fit for Dexter 8-247 Drums
  • You are correct that the Redline Spindle 2 inch x 4 inch Round Stub, part # R40484, which you reference, is a fit for your Dexter trailer hub and drum, part # 8-247-50. Please note the spindle has a 1750 lbs. capacity, so two spindles will give your axle a 3500 lbs. capacity. I would strongly recommend you take the axle to a qualified machine shop to have the appropriate welds done.
