E-Z Lube-Compatible Hub for Simple Lubrication

The grease cap on this hub is specially designed to work with your Dexter E-Z Lube axle to make lubricating bearings quick and easy. Just remove the plug on the grease cap, attach a grease gun to the zerk fitting on the end of the spindle, and inject the grease. It will flow easily to both inner and outer bearings. Not only does this make lubricating the bearings easy, but it also helps to prevent corrosion of the hub. This is because you can lubricate the bearings without the mess of taking apart the entire assembly.

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"

Note: Some axles rated at 2,000 lbs require a different seal and bearings. Be sure that the bearings in the hub being replaced have L44649 stamped on them. If the bearings have L44643 stamped on them, use 8-258BTUC1 trailer hub.

Note: Trailer wheels that are smaller than 15" and have 5 bolts, have a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern.

I was amazed at all the helpful information (measuring, correct bearing size etc.), with videos when searching for the correct hub replacements for my 1999 Bass Tracker - Trailstar Trailer which has the EZ lube Dexter axle.

The shipping was great and everything arrived as it should. The boxing was heavy duty and did it's job. I have to say I was amazed at the spot on shipping and customer service from start to finish. has my business from now on.


Direct bolt-on replacement hubs for my utility trailer. Had both hubs packed with grease and installed in an hour. Completed a 600+ mile vacation with trailer in tow, worked fantastic.

Paul A.


Still serving me well after a year of use.


Awesome product, fits like it should! Came with everything for a full hub, did not come with castle-nut or cotter-pin but can re-use the old nut and pick up a new pin at a hardware store. Great customer service, quick shipping, great price.

No Complaints From Our Customer


Installed the new hubs yesterday on my Triton snowmobile trailer.
These are the OEM hub for my trailer and I wasn't happy with the replacement hubs which were installed as the EZ Lube feature of the axle was not working a it should.

It was real nice to order a complete high quality hub set at a great good price.

They fit Great and the EZ Lube hubs now work well.


I am very happy with service etrailer has provided me. I decided to tackle my trailer's hub and bearing replacement by myself. I started last weekend, took the down the correct bearing Serial numbers, came to the site, ordered the correct set of bearings and hubs, and they were delivered promptly this Thurs. Completed the replacement on both hubs just this morning. I found the "how to" videos this company provided extremely helpful. Thank you etrailer for providing me such a great experience.



Direct replacement, fits well, works well. Don't be cheap and get the replacement bearings cup, cone and seal as well.



The rubber seals to hold the grease in are a bit dodgey though after just being exposed to sunshine... they are starting to crack and dry out, which to me means they are a very inexpensive and cheap quality rubber.I havent had to adjust the bearings yet, so happy overall. Note they were installed on a 25 year old trailer so really was helpful to extend the life even further.


Ordering on line was simply and easy. The company processed my order quickly and emailed me the tracking information. Unfortunately, UPS didn't scan the package, so tracking was useless. I called the company to make sure my ordered shipped. The customer service lady was polite and apologized for the inconvenience. She was able to tell me when my package should arrive. It arrived on schedule. The items I received were not damaged and were exactly what I ordered. Installation was a breeze. I am very happy with my purchase.


Hub assembly arrived as described. They fit as they should, and were very easy to install. The guys at helped ensure the parts were the exact replacement for the parts I wanted to replace. Great service, fast shipping, and great pricing.

I would buy from over and over and over again.


Great Hubs fast shipping. When you buy a axle it should be noted that it fits your hubs only.

Thanks for your review, Richard - As long as the hub bearings and seal matches what the axle spindle calls for, the hubs do not have to be the hubs that we have on our site.

Richard W.


The axle is performing great. I have run it about 2000 miles and the tires are doing great. The original axle wore out a tire in 1000 miles. I am very pleased with this business and have told several people about it. THANKS


one quick phone call to etrailer and they confirmed what I needed which was a complete spindle assembly. The assembly arrived on time and fit perfectly. The online support videos showed me how to install the spindle and another quick call to tech support concerning mixing grease types and the installation went smooth! Thanks guys!


Great product. Kit comes with everything needed to replace the Hub. Total install time was less then 10min and the new wheels matched up perfectly. The kit was just installed so no comment on the durability yet but everything appears to be made of good quality materials. Extremely fast shipping. Highly recommend this product as well and the distributer. Job well done all the way around.


Exactly what I ordered, it should be clear races are installed. Parts were loose in box but all there. I bought as emergency hub assembly for boat trailer. I did notice bearings are made in China that was my only concern for long term use.


All bearing and seal parts where delivered on time and worked perfectly on rebuilding wheel beatings


I made numerous phone calls because I was worried about ordering the wrong hub. These people were so patient and helpful and never got aggravated with all my questions. In the end, I received my hub very quickly, it went right on with little effort at all. One year later I've had no issues period. They got me back on the water quickly and I would recommend anyone use etrailers for any needs you may have!! Very polite and professional with high quality parts!


Like everything else I purchased to try and resurrect my old boat trailer, these hubs fit perfectly and worked great. Thanks!!


Was exactly what I need. Price was great. Expedited delivery showed up exactly as promised. Note that the hub and bearings come completely disassembled and ungreased. So you'll need to assemble it all on the spindle and grease the bearings.


These are very well made hubs and they were packaged very carefully so as to be clean and ready for greasing and assembly. I have purchased a number of items from etrailer and every time they exceed my expectations.


Ordered for a spare hub for Tracker marine trailer for Fisher 1710 boat. Exact hub as original and a great price compared to local marine dealers or parts stores.


This organization is 1st rate. First, the shipping method was upgraded for free to a faster delivery, the item was an exact replacement for my existing hub with a different PN, and then the parts fit PERFECTLY. I would definitely buy from these guys again!


Great and easy to lube bearings


Great service. Hubs are working well. Hubs went on the Axles, without any craziness. Hubs are a great product.


Exact replacements for my enclosed trailer (1997 Wells Cargo)


2nd time I've ordered from you and both times were perfect. All good. Thanks again. New fat fenders and wheel hubs for the trailer.


Very satisfied with this replacement hub and functioning as designed.


Fast and easy. Exactly the parts I need ed

  • Will Grease Seal 13194 Fit with Dexter Axle 8-258 Hub
    Yes, the Grease Seal # 13194 will fit just fine with a Dexter Axle 8-258 like part # 8-258-5UC1. I would verify fitment of this seal with your spindle by using a digital caliper like part # 301-17068. What you'll want to do is measure the diameter of your spindle where the grease seal rides. The seal # 13194 mentioned above has a 1.372" ID.

  • Replacement Dexter 8-258 Hub Recommendation
    The hub part number # 8-258-5UC1-EZ that you referenced would be the correct hub for you as it would be an exact replacement to what you currently have. It comes with a set of matching bearings to fit your spindle.

  • Determining Weight Capacity of Torsion Axle Without Part Number or Any Other Markings
    Based on the 8-258 you found on your hubs, I found the Trailer Hub Assembly for 2,000-lb E-Z Lube Axles - 5 on 4-1/2 - 13" - 15" Wheels # 8-258-5UC1-EZ. These are Dexter hubs that fit a 2,000 lb axle. That is a typical axle weight for a Dexter number 9 torsion axle, so I would recommend that be the maximum capacity for your trailer weight and load when you turn it into a utility trailer.

  • Replacement Trailer Hub Recommendation for Dexter 8-258
    The Dexter Hub part # 8-258-5UC1-EZ is an exact match for the hubs you have on your trailer currently and would be a great choice. Bearing Buddies can be pretty convenient but the problem with them is that they make it too easy to over fill the hub with grease which causes the seal to blow out like you are experiencing. Your current Bearing Buddies would fit this hub too and as long as you don't over fill the hubs you'd be fine. I attached a review video for a Bearing Buddy that shows...

  • Dexter Hub 8-258 Replacement Recommendation for a 2003 14 foot Floe Snowmobile Trailer
    Well, you did most of my work for me so I'd like to first thank you! If you currently have Dexter 8-258 hubs on your trailer that use two L44649 bearings the correct hub you would need is the Trailer Hub Assembly # 8-258-5UC1-EZ that you referenced. If the hub you currently have on your trailer is compatible with your trailer rims then the # 8-258-5UC1-EZ would work just fine. I believe you are concerned that your trailer wheels are too small for this hub, but since this hub worked just...

  • Hub Recommendation for Folding Motorcycle Trailer with Bearings L44649
    If both of the bearings are L44649 (most likely they are) the correct hub you need is the part # 8-258-5UC1-EZ which will fit your spindle and also has a bolt pattern of 5 on 4-1/2 inches. The other way to verify the other bearing number is to measure the spindle where the bearings both ride. If they are both 1-1/16 inch like you mentioned this hub will fit.

  • Smallest Pilot Hole on a Trailer Wheel to Fit Dexter 2K Pound Idler Hub # 8-258-5UC1-EZ
    Dexter trailer hub # 8-258-5UC1-EZ is compatible with 13 to 15 inch wheels. On a 12 inch wheel with the same 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern the pilot hole size is 3.19 inches. I do not recommend going any smaller than that. The pilot hole can be larger, just not smaller.

  • Center Hub Bore Diameter Of Dexter Trailer Idler Hub 8-258-5UC1-EZ
    The outer diameter of the hub bore (shaft) portion of the Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly part # 8-258-5UC1-EZ is 1.986" outer diameter so your wheels will have no issues clearing it. The hub flange diameter is 6-1/2" which allows you to use 13" to 15" wheels on the hub.

  • Trailer Hub Replacement for Shorelandr Trailer Part SS818
    Thanks for giving me the dimensions and part number of the hub you are looking for. Based on that I can tell that you have a BTR spindle on your trailer. I also was able to determine that you need a bolt pattern of 5 on 4-1/2 inch with 1/2 inch studs. The hub that would be basically an exact replacement is the part # 8-258-5UC1-EZ.

  • Replacement Idler Hub for Bassmaster Boat Trailer
    We do offer a few idler hubs that may work for you. Since the hubs we offer can vary per the bearings and races and seals they fit you will want to make sure you get the correct replacement. The easiest way to find the right replacement is to check the numbers on the hub components as noted in the attached photo.

    We will need to go by the bearings used in your current hub. If your bearings are L44649 inner and outer then you can use hub # 8-258-5UC1-EZ. It and hub # 8-259-5UC1-EZ use the same bearings, both have a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern, and both are for 2,000 pound axles.

  • Replacement for Dexter 8-258 Trailer Hubs
    Verify your bearing numbers and bolt pattern to be sure but I believe either # 8-258-5UC1-EZ for E-Z Lube axles or # 8-258-5UC1 for standard axles is what you need. Both of these hubs include bearing # L44649 for the inner and outer. They have a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern.

  • Galvanized Hub For 2000 ShoreLandr Boat Trailer With 1-1/16 Bearing
    I found the ShoreLandr online and you need a hub with a inner and outer bearing part # L44649. The inner diameter of the L44649 bearing is 1.063 inches. You can measure your existing bearing to be sure that's what it measures. I recommend Dexter Galvanized Hub part # 8-258-50UC1-EZ if you have an axle equipped with EZ lube fittings on the spindles. I recommend Dexter Galvanized Hub part # 8-258-50UC1 if you have a standard spindle without EZ lube fittings. Both of these hubs are galvanized.

    Based on the dimensions you listed you have a BTR spindle which has a diameter of 1.06 where the bearings ride. For a hub that matches that and has a 5 lug bolt pattern we have the part # 8-258-5UC1-EZ. Or if you want a brake drum you would want the part # 8-257-5UC3-EZ. Both of these hubs will fit the trailer axle and have the 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern you are looking for.

  • Would the Hub and Drum # 8-174-5UC3 Fit My Mobile Home 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 all of these measurements check out the # 8-174-5UC3...

    When upgrading a tire size you always want to consider tire clearance. The actual distance between the inside of a tire and the frame rail depends a lot on the setup of the trailer. But as long as the tire and the frame don't touch you would be fine. You should have at least 2-3 inches from the sidewall to the trailer and at least 4 inches from the tread to the underside of the fender.
