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 - 8-258-5UC1 Review

Today were going to review part number 8-258-BUC1 this is the Dexter Trailer Hub Assembly for 12-inch to 15-inch wheels with the 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern. This trailer hub assembly will include five of the 1/2-inch cone seat lug nuts. It will include the inner and outer bearing both the same part number of L44649. It will include the grease cap and the grease seal, part number 10-9 and the bearing races are already installed in the hub assembly. There is the outer bearing race. Theres the inner bearing race.

Most all our hub assemblies we do preinstall the bearing races in them. The application on this hub assembly is 2000-lb axles. The capacity on this hub assembly is 1250 lbs so when this is paired with one on the other side of the axle would give you your maximum weight capacity of 2500 lbs. This does have a bolt pattern of 5 on 4-1/2. Now it also has a hub flange, which is this whole section here, the diameter of it is 6-1/2 inches.

So that will allow you to use 12-inch to 15-inch wheels with this hub assembly. Now when I mentioned the bolt pattern, the way to measure that on a bolt pattern that has an odd number of lugs which in this case would be five, is you would measure from the center of one wheel stud to the center of a wheel stud right next to it. That would be 2-5/8 inches and that would make this a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern. The way you can tell that is if you go to the product page for this part number at the bottom of the page will have a table that will show you when take this measurement from stud to stud across from each other, if its 2-5/8 it will mean its a 5 on 4-1/2-inch bolt pattern. Now some axles that are rated at 2000 lbs like this one will require a different seal and bearings.

Be sure that the bearings in the hub youre replacing have the L44643 stamped on them. If they dont, if they have the L44643 then you need to use a different like part number hub assembly which would be 8-258-BTUC1. That should do it for our review on part number 8-258-BUC1.

Put many miles on these at highway speeds hauling dirtbikes and quads. After one year no issues to report. Have not regreased yet so nothing to report on bearing condition but they are still tight, not getting hot, and spin with little resistance. Good buy. 480530

In building two tear drop trailers (see attached picture) and do to a miss measurement I ended up with two axles without hubs. (another story!) So I decided to order hub and start making a utility trailer. I enjoy etrailer's website. It is very helpful in selecting the right trailer parts. Delivery was good but the packaging was poor. The bearing, seal, lug nuts and cap are all in one bag taped to the heavy hub. One of the seal were bent but the rubber part looked OK, so I straighten it the best I could and install it anyway. I did not want to go through the hassle of returning it for a new one. 358640

Still have not built the utility trailer. Other project have taken priority.

- 8-258-5UC1
by:

The service that I received while ordering was fine. However, I had poor results as one of the hubs/tire flew off of the axle at 60mph on our first camping trip. Not sure if it was the part or installation error, but everyone was ok. After towing to dealer and repairs, they said the axle was fine, but both hubs/tires needed to be replaced. We have gone on a couple trips this summer, with no more difficulties. DIY is not always the best option. Safe travels everyone! 307856

I would give his item 5 stars, except I couldn't get the grease covers to fit the hubs. I had to use the old covers. Other than that, the kit was very easy to install and came with everything I needed except a Cotter pin, washer and nut. I used my old washer and nut and a new Cotter pin. Customer service was very helpful and the shipping was super quick! 305739

by:

I noticed both my hubs had cracks and someone before me did too, see photo w/ yellow mark at crack, I almost ordered just the bearing kit. The hubs arrived together and all the parts where heavily taped to hub securing them well so no damage occurred. Madison at eTrailer.com was a great help in finding the right parts I needed. Installation was easy as the races were already mounted in the hub. The price was affordable and when i mounted the hub/tire i almost thought i heard the boat trailer sigh with relief. 301188

by:

These hubs were a good replacement for my old tired boat trailer. Be sure to measure everything on your old hubs. This kit didn't have the right seal for my axle but with so many different sizes out there measure to be certain. I had some seals from a previous job sitting on the shelf so I just used those. The kit didn't have cotter pins so make sure you have them as well. Overall a good product. 288895

There were no part numbers on my utility trailer's bearings and the part numbers on the hubs were not matching anything I could find online. I called eTrailer and spoke with Ashley. She did a great job at mapping over exactly what new part numbers I needed and had them shipped out; she was super helpful and patient. Everything fits and is working perfectly with my new ST175/80/D13 wheels and tires on my 5x8 2000 Eagle Utility Trailer. Prices are good and service was excellent. If eTrailer should improve on anything it should be the packaging. One of the new hub dust covers was bent/dented but still usable. Still worth a 5 star rating! 249302

I received this in a timely manner. The grease cap was damaged in shipping, but etrailer sent me a replacement without issue. A smaller box would have prevented the hub assembly from rolling around. I appreciate the videos by etrailer explaining the two different sized hubs in this class. That helped me make sure I was ordering the correct part for my axle. 216361

The products ordered were exactly what I needed. After having to replace bearings on the side of the road a few times over the years, I finally decided to buy a spare hub, which I feel will cut the roadside maintenance time dramatically, should I have a seal or bearing failure. (It happens.) The packaging could have been better. I also had 5 pairs of seals ordered with the hub, as the ones that came with it did not fit my axel. (Always read the notes on the products thoroughly. Glad I did.) One of the seals was damaged beyond use (crushed by the hub) during shippment. While the parts were packed with packing-paper, I'm not sure that would suffice with some of today's parcel carriers. You know, the ones that run up to your porch and throw the box as they turn to run back to their trucks. Anyway, completely happy with the ordering process, shipping time, delivery time, and most importantly, the email communication from E-Trailer. I've purchased from E-Trailer before and will definately be back for future needs. 199511


Comments

Thankfully I havent had to use the hub yet. I bought it as a spare, as changing a hub instead of changing seals on the side of the road may be a lifesaver. Thanks for the email follow up. I will be back to shop. Oh, my neighbor just bought a boat and I gave him your website link, with a strong recommendation.

The shipping was fast! The hub package is nice but the paint job is not the best. The packing of the hub package could have been better, the bag that was taped to the hub pulled the paint. I stripped the paint and reapplied paint in short order! Wish the package that contained the bearings, nuts, grease cap and seal was better protected because both grease caps were damaged at the lip and unusable. This damage is not a concern for my project because I am using bearing buddies. I will be back because of the great service and good price! Thanks 178660

- 8-258-5UC1
by:

Exactly what I needed. Item was just as described. Others have complained about the lack of packaging since the product comes with the "hardware" in a sealed bag taped to the hubs. I don't see this as a problem since I got every piece I ordered and would throw the packaging away anyway. Etrailer really hooked me up and made me a repeat customer for the future. My order shipped 1 hour after I placed it. 174786

by:

Great product, great price. This is a duplicate of what was originally on my boat trailer. I check prices when I go to buy replacement parts, trying to replace with the same brand name as the original. Been burnt by too many aftermarket items that "almost work the same." Local retailers wanted $100 for this, not to mention the sales tax. Some online retailers wanted $82.00+ for this same product. Etrailer came through for me. 157308

Acceptable quality, fit my trailer just fine, easier than trying to get the original bearing races out of my old rusty hub. Comes with the bearings, seal, and lug nuts, but no cotter pin. Seems like that would be obvious and it could cause an unexpected trip to the hardware store if you don't have some available. 80095



- 8-258-5UC1
by:

Hubs are in nice shape, I like the fact that they dont come greased as I would have no clue what grease was used in them. Please take note however if you are replacing marine hubs like I was that you will need to order two seperate double lip seals. I actually had to order a second time because I noticed that I couldnt hold any hub pressure on my ezlube hubs. Note that I knew from the get go that I needed different caps. I would like to see this same hub offered in a marine package or a warning that this is only a single lip seal. Its however not a deal breaker, I will order a third knowing what I know now to have a travel backup. 70663



- 8-258-5UC1
by:

Sent two different seals both of which were the wrong size. One of the seals was too dented to use even if it had been the correct size. One set of bearings was the wrong size. Packaging was very unprofessional with the bearings, seals, lug nuts, and dust caps taped to the hub with packaging tape. Package did arrive on time but could not be used. Customer service was good and we are awaiting a refund. 70421

  • Correct Hub Assembly for Dexter 8-258 Hub and 13-Inch Wheels
  • With axle 8-258, your bearings are either # L44643 or # L44649. # L44643 bearings have an inner diameter of 1 inch, while bearings # L44649 have an inner diameter of 1.063 inches. You can locate the bearing numbers on the bearings themselves, or you can measure the diameter using the image I've attached. We offer two hub assembly kits with # L44643 bearings.

We actually have had a customer who sent this information in to us so I am able to help you find exactly what you are needing.

If you refer to the photo I linked you'll see how these parts numbers usually appear.

  • Replacement Hub for 1989 Ranger Trailer
  • Judging by your photo, your trailer would use an idler hub, not a hub drum. Assuming you have 5 lug on 4-1/2 inch bolt circle wheels that use an # L44649 inner and outer wheel bearing, you have a few choices. Rather than the painted hub, I'd recommend going with a galvanized hub for greater corrosion resistance. Dexter hubs are manufactured in the US, which is what I'd recommend. For an 8, 10 or a 12 inch wheel, use # 8-259-50UC1 for a standard spindle or # 8-259-50UC1-EZ for the EZ...

  • 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.

  • Trailer Hub for a Boat Trailer with Inner Bearing L68149 and Outer Bearing L44649
  • We have several trailer hub options with the 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern and bearings L68149 and L44649. For an idler hub there are 2 options. We have a standard hub, # 84545BX, which includes the bearings, races, seal, grease cap, and lug nuts. There is also an EZ lube version of the same hub if you have an EZ lube axle. It is # 84545UC1-EZ. It also includes the bearings, races, seal, grease cap, and lug nuts.

  • How to Determine the Size of a Trailer Hub Assembly for Replacement
  • To determine the size of the hub assembly you need to purchase you have to determine which bearings are in the old assembly. If the old assembly has L44649 inner bearings, you would use the hub you chose # 8-258-5UC1. If the inner bearings are marked L44643, you will need # 8-258BTUC1. If you do not have the old bearings, you need to measure the inner bearing surface on the spindle to determine if the 1.063 inch dimension or 1.00 inch dimension will be needed to accept the bearing. You...

  • Replacement Trailer Hubs that Use Inner Bearing L68149 and Outer Bearing L44649
  • If your trailer has inner bearing L68149 and outer bearing L44649 then it likely has a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. But to be sure we get you the right hubs I would need to know the bolt pattern of the wheels for sure. I have included a link to the right that explains how to measure for bolt pattern. If it does end up being a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern then you can use hub # 84545BX or # AKIHUB-545-35-G-K for a galvanized hub. If the wheels require a different bolt pattern, use the other...

  • Replacement Trailer Hub for 55-Year-Old Trailer
  • You have an interesting combination of bearings on your trailer hub. We carry the # LM67048 bearing, but the other bearing we don't so it is unlikely that we will have a hub for your 55-year-old trailer. However, you can double check by measuring the spindle then using dial calipers since the measurements have to be as accurate as possible. Please refer to the picture I have included that shows where to measure the spindle. With those measurements we can try to determine the correct...

  • Choosing Between Painted or GAL-DEX Coated Version of Dexter Trailer Hub
  • The GAL-DEX coated version of the hub you referenced is part # 8-258-50UC1. There is a very small price differential between the painted and the GAL-DEX version. The GAL-DEX coating can withstand a continuous 500 hour exposure to salt spray before corrosion sets in. In my opinion, the extra corrosion protection is well worth the small increase in price.

  • Trailer Hub Recommend for Utility Trailer with 5 on 5-1/2 inch Bolt Pattern L44649/L68149 Bearings
  • The spindles of an EZ lube axle are the exact same as a non-EZ-lube. Only difference being the zerk fitting at the end of it. The EZ lube hubs we offer are the same as the non-EZ-lube hubs with the only difference being the grease cap has a rubber plug that fits the cap. For a replacement hub to replace yours with a 5 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern and matches your bearings of L44649/L68149 you would wan the part # AKHD-555-35-K for a non-EZ lube or part # AKHD-555-35-EZ-K for EZ-lube style.

  • Need Grease Seals with 1.375-Inch Inner Diameter and 1.980-Inch Outer Diameter for Bearing L44649
  • Thank you for providing the measurements of the grease seals you need. We do offer seals that match your measurements, and which also correspond to the bearing number you provided, L44649. Part # BB60005 consists of two seals and seal rings, enough for 2 hubs. If you have a tandem axle trailer you will need two kits. For your reference I have linked a product video for this part.

  • How To Determine the Correct Replacement Trailer Hub Assembly
  • The best way to determine which hub assembly you will need is by the bearing numbers. The item you selected, Trailer Hub Assembly, part # 8-258-5UC1, is a replacement hub which uses Inner and Outer Bearing # L44649. The bearing numbers will be stamped or lasered onto the flat back side of the bearings. The other things you will need to determine are the bolt pattern, the size of your trailer wheel, and the axle capacity. Part # 8-258-5UC, is compatible with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern....

  • Replacement Wheels with 6 on 5-1/2 Bolt Pattern for Old Home Made Trailer
  • It could be a mobile home axle. A lot of people use them to make trailers, which is a bad idea since they are designed for one time use only, and there are very few and hard to find replacement parts. The largest wheels we have that use the 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern are 16 inch wheels, see link. The hubs and drums we carry with the 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern will fit in 16 inches wheels so a 16 inch wheel might be the best option for you. Since the hub has studs sticking out of it that...

  • The difference in the Dexter Hub, # 8-258-5UC1, and the Dexter Hub, # 8-258BTUC1, is the inner bearing dimensions and the inner seal dimensions. Here are the dimensions for each hub.

  • Recommended Idler Hub Assembly for 1-1/16 Inch Diameter Spindle With Seal 1-1/4 Inches at Spindle

  • Which Hub to Use for 2,200 lb Dexter Axle 8-258 or 8-259
  • Thanks for the pictures. Either part number hub is going to fit your hub since they both have the same bolt pattern and bearings. The difference is going to be based on the diameter of your trailer wheels. If you have 13-14 inch diameter rims you would want the part # 8-258-5UC1. If you have smaller wheels that are 10-12 inch you would want the # 8-259-5UC1-EZ. The difference is the size of the wheel mounting flange.

  • Replacement Hubs for Haulmaster # 90154 Trailer
  • To determine if we have a replacement hub that will be compatible, you will need to use a digital caliper and take some measurements of your existing spindles. If you reply with the B, C and D dimensions you find (as shown in the diagram I provided), I would be happy to try to find hubs that would be compatible with your bearings.

  • Replacing Bearings, Races, and Seals for Hub with L68149 and L44643 Inner/Outer Bearings
  • The outer bearing you have, # L44643, is very close in size to bearing # L44649. These two bearings fit different size spindles. So in other words the larger L44649 bearing would be very loose on the spindle that normally takes the L44643. Measure the diameter of the spindle where the outer bearing sits using some digital or dial calipers. If the measurement is 1 inch then L44643 that you have is correct. This bearing is typically found on 2,000 pound axles but not 3,500 pound axles. We...
