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 - 8-257-5UC3 Review

Today we're going to review part number 8-257-5UC3. This is the Dexter trailer hub and drum assembly for electric brakes. Has the 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern and is used on 2,000 pound axles. Now this hub and drum has a 1,750 pound weight capacity per assembly, so when you match this with one on the other side of your axle it will give you a total weight capacity of 3,500 pounds, which would be more than enough to put on your 2,000 pound axle. Now this part does include everything shown here. This part number is just for one hub and drum but everything shown here is included. Comes with the inner and outer bearings, the bearing races which are already pre-installed on the front and the back of the hub.

Comes with the double lip grease seal, the grease cap, and the lug nuts. Again, the application for this is most 2,000 pound axles that have a 1-1/16" diameter spindle. Now this is used for use with the 7" by 1-1/4" electric brakes only. Now a measurement on the drum dimension: the diameter is going to be 7". The width's going to be right at 1-3/4". The bolt pattern on this is 5 on 4-1/2".

Now the bearings that are used are part number L44649. They use the same inner and outer bearing number. The grease seal would be T-9. It's a double lip grease seal. Comes with the grease cap that would go over everything, then the 1/2" by 20 lug nuts that would be used to hold to wheels and tires to this hub and drum. That should do it for the review on part number 8-257-5UC3, the Dexter trailer hub and drum assembly for electric brakes, with the 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern, for 2,000 pound axles.

I have received the product ordered, but have not installed. Parts received look to be the correct items. Due to bearing problems on our camper during a recent trip I need to replace the hub on one side and will replace the bearing on the opposite side. Lisa was very helpful with the ordering process, made sure the parts were the correct items, and suggested ways in improve the ordering process. The parts were packaged properly and received without damage. She indicated the parts would be here at a certain time, and they were. The entire ordering process was seamless. Now if I can just her to install the components, life would be good! 574385

Great hub, drum and lugs - works great. I had couple of bent lugs and this fixed that issue. 527210


Comments

If the wheel studs werent bent from hitting a pothole or road debris, Id recommend checking the loaded weight of the trailer to ensure the axle isnt overloaded.

Great customer service and delivery. The hubs were exactly we expected and were easy to install and performed perfectly on an 11, 400 mile trip around the USA. I put the hubs w/brakes and controller on an Aspen "Classis" tent trailer being pulled behind a GL 1800 Honda Goldwing and loaded to the max. These products made for a much safer trip and greater peace of mind. Thanks! 359625

The staff at eTrailer.com are very helpful and knowledgeable - ask if you're unsure. I originally ordered through the Internet and received the wrong products - because I neglected to ask questions. The return went smooth, but I had to pay for it (my error). The next round arrived well packaged (externally), but there was thin packing tape all over the outside of the hubs and some on the inside rubbing surface of the hubs. It took some doing to get it all off. There was a little rust on the non-contact surfaces of the hub as well as on the brake housing. On the brake housing, you can see some rust in the pic. Looks like it may have been rebuilt. This doesn't seem to have any effect on its operation though. Seals, Races & Bearings are super clean and fit perfectly. I installed these brakes onto the existing '4.5 on 5' flange on a 2000 pound axle (on a 2004 Aliner LX Classic Pop-up trailer). It came with the bolts to attach to the flange, but be sure to order the adjuster grommets, lock washers and 7/16x20 fine thread nuts, since it doesn't come with them. Once I got the wiring set up properly, it works exactly as it should. I prewired the setup prior to delivery. My error was that I assumed the only wire I'd need to run was the blue (brake) wire, but there are two wires on the brake housing as you can see in the picture. Either one goes to the blue (doesn't matter which) and the other attaches to the neutral (white) wire that goes back through the trailer's main wiring harness. Simply attaching the wire to the trailer frame (ground) like I initially did as seen in the picture looked like a good clean setup and easy solution to my one-wire mistake. Unfortunately, it DID NOT WORK. The secondary (neutral) wire must be detected by the tow vehicle's brake controller. Plan ahead and buy the blue and white primary wires (20 feet of 14 or 16 gauge will work) and run them next to each other before hand. Be sure to house the wires in 'plastic split loom tubing' so they don't rub against anything and zip tie them to the frame, so they're not hanging or in the way of anything. Happy braking. :-) 219103

Drum and brake arrived safe and sound, was well packed, and worked like a champ. I used the shotgun approach for a brake grabbing problem on the right side of my very small motorcycle camper trailer. I tried everything to fix it, needed quick repair to go on a trip, so ordered the whole thing (drum, brakes, bearings incl.). Glad I did, as there is no more grabbing and overheated drum, AND better gas mileage. I never found out for sure what the original problem was, but now suspect bearings since they appeared pretty sloppy in their housing. I assume the worn bearings caused the drum to move around on the spindle, causing grabbing from time to time. 142419

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


  • How To Determine If Brakes And Hubs Will Fit Tandem Trailer
  • The # AKEBRK-2 brake assemblies will work with the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly, part # 8-257-5UC3. The dimension of 2-3/8 inches you said your axles measure is for a 3,500-lb axle. The problem may be that the brakes and drums do not fit your spindles on your axle. You will need to do some measuring to see if they will work. I recommend using a digital caliper like part # PTW80157. You will want to measure the spindle in the locations noted in the attached drawing. After you get the...

  • Recommended Brake Hub and Drum To Replace AL-KO 363216
  • AL-KO was bought out by Dexter Axle years ago, so I recommend the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 8-257-5UC3 if you have a standard spindle or # 8-257-5UC3-EZ if you have a spindle with the built in grease zerk fitting on the end. As long as your brake magnets and shoes have even wear and are functioning properly, there is no requirement to replace them prior to the manufacturer's recommendation. If either of them have uneven wear, then I recommend replacing them at the same...

  • Replacing Dexter Idler Hub 008-258-05 with Hub and Drum Assembly # 8-257-5UC3
  • Yes, our part number system uses # 8-257-5UC3 but it is the exact same as Dexter part K08-257-91. Dexter does not limit the hub and drum assembly to 12 inch wheels so yes, you could use a 14 inch wheel with assembly # 8-257-5UC3. Since you told me which hub you have, 008-258-05, I can tell you that you have a BTR spindle. It takes inner and outer bearing L44649. The spindle diameter is slightly more than 1 inch (1.063-ish inches). No need to change the spindle since you won't need...

  • Lug Nut Torque for 13 Inch Trailer Wheels on a 2014 KZ Sportsman Classic
  • I am assuming that the lug nut/stud size for your trailer wheels are 1/2 inch. That would mean you would need to torque the lug nuts to 75 to 85 foot pounds. There might even be a spec listed in the manual for your 2014 KZ Sportsman Classic. If they happen to be 7/16 then you would torque them to 55 to 65 foot pounds. And if they happen to be 9/16 then you would torque them to 95 to 115 foot pounds.

  • Parts Needed to Install Trailer Brakes on a 2,200 lb Dexter Axle

For a brake assemblies you would need the part # 23-47 for the left hand side and part # 23-48 for the right hand side.

  • Hub Recommendations to fit a BTR Spindle with 1.06 C and D Dimensions
  • Based on the C and D dimensions you listed you have a BTR spindle. The correct idler hub with a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern that you would need would be the Trailer Hub Assembly # 8-259-5UC1-EZ. If you needed a hub and drum assembly for your spindle you would need the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 8-257-5UC3. The # 34822545BX would not work on your spindle dimensions.

  • Can a 2,000 Pound Trailer Axle be Fitted with Electric Brakes and 10 or 12 Inch Wheels
  • You would need to step up to a 3500 pound set up to get an axle that comes with brake mounting flanges. You could have brake mounting flanges welded to a 2K axle if you wanted but it is a precision job that requires the proper equipment and someone who has performed this job before. So for example you could use axle # T20BTR-6048 with hub and drum assembly # 8-257-5UC3. then you would need brake mounting flange # 4-34 and brake assemblies # 23-47 and # 23-48.

Since your axle spindles do NOT have brake flanges I suggest a whole new axle. The reason is that while brake flanges can certainly be welded on, their installation accuracy is critical. This is in no way a DIY type of job. Special jigs and welding experience are required to ensure the flanges...

  • Torque Rating for Spindle Nut on Trailer Hubs
  • When our installers replace a trailer hub, there isn't a set torque spec used when tightening the spindle nut. The hub is placed on the spindle, making sure the inner and outer bearings are correctly seated. The spindle nut is then run down until you start feeling resistance. At that point, spin the hub and check for end play (wobble). If the hub still seems a bit loose, you can run the nut down a bit more.

  • Hub/Drum and Seal Recommendation for a 1997 Coleman Fleetwood Bayport Camper

Other than that one small detail you would be good to go with these hubs as a replacement on your 1997 Coleman Fleetwood Bayport Camper.

  • Recommended Torque Values for Lug Nut on 1/2-Inch Wheel Stud with Steel Wheel
  • Torque value ranges for lug nuts depend primarily on the diameter of the stud and the material the wheel is made of, 1/2-inch studs and a steel wheel in your case. In this instance a torque range of 90 - 120-ft/lbs is appropriate.

If your 13 inch wheels have 4 bolt holes then you would need 2 of assembly # 8-173-16UC3. If the wheels have 5 bolt holes then you would need 2 of assembly # 8-257-5UC3. For electric brakes for either of these assemblies you would need # 23-48 for the right side and # 23-47 for the left side. You will also need 8 of nut # 6-17 and 8 of lock washer # 5-8. And...
