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


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"

I ordered a hub for my trailer along with another part. The 2nd part was on back order which would have delayed my order. I needed the hub for a trip. George and team were great in revising and expediting my order. Hub arrived on time, good condition, fit perfectly. 515817

Very nice hub kit and an excellent discription on the website. We upgraded from a 8” rim to 13” and this is the hub that’s recommended for 13”rim. Couldn’t be happier with the hubs or the filters on the website since they made it very easy to navigate and bring the options down to a select few. 486883

Very happy with everything except for that after wasting a lot of time trying to get the grease caps on and still cannot! No matter what I did would not work so they are now in the trash and I need to buy new ones. That is pretty ridiculous in my opinion. Other then that I’m very satisfied but giving this a 1 because buying the complete unit it should all assemble together without problems. 481452

Fast shipping everything listed and pictured is here and in good shape. I would have given 5 stars if the kit had come complete with a cotter pin. No fault of Etrailer as it was not in the parts list. I would just like to see a kit as a complete kit. Overall no complaints its a good deal and I hope to put many miles on it. 247128

First of all my Customer Rep Julie H, Was very helpful and gave accurate information. A real pleasure working with her. The Hub fit as design and came to me clean and ready to go. I used this hub to retro fit a older trailer, 1960 ish. The original wheels also housed the bearing. I would recommend this change out I also went from an 8' wheel to 12" 159308

Quick Delivery, went together good, except for the Dust Covers. Could not get either of those things on to save my life. Very Thin Gauge Tin. I had another Heavier Gauge set from other hubs, they went on with no problems. 150141

After ordering from parts houses and getting expensive wrong grease seals, for my boat trailer, I found a websit e trailer, I called and talked to Jennifer, she knew what I needed right away, I ordered a hub with races, bearings, grease seals and lug nuts.

This product arrived quickly and fit well. It is of equivalent or better quality than the original hub and bearings on my Snowbear trailer, which had rusted rather badly. I like having studs and lug nuts instead of lug bolts. I also like having it ungreased so I can know what kind of grease I am putting in and not worry about compatibility (lithium vs. calcium, etc.). My only beef is that it should come with a new cotter pin and ideally, a new castle nut to truly be complete. Thanks to etrailer for listing enough dimensions that I could pick out the correct hub, since the originals had no numbers on them. 50536

etrailer.com did a great job, I emailed a few questions and they answered quickly. I ordered the hub over the weekend receiving an email that they received the order and it was in process, The hub shipped quickly with an email notification and arrived the next day with a second email that the package was waiting in my garage. Everything fit great and the trailer is rolling real nice now. 29163

Great service and product, everything exactly as advertised. The hubs are going to go on a BBQ grill that we are changing the wheel size from 8" to 15". It is unusual to find a company that provides the service and product quality level this company does, what a pleasure dealing with them.--Thank-you. 28525

20/20 hindsight tells me I made a bad decision when I got a 20% discount on a display model utility trailer from a large "big box" hardware store here in the Seattle area. Many of the parts were assembled incorrectly, some of the hardware was missing, and they'd adjusted the wheel bearings too tightly which ended up frying one of them and the associated bearing races just during the trip home. The bearing races were integral with the hubs and weren't servicable, so the hub was ruined. And, unfortunately, I didn't end up using the trailer for quite a while and didn't notice all this until after well the warranty had expired. The trailer was manufactured by a Canadian company and they claimed that, due to US regulatory restrictions, they were currently unable to ship bearings or hubs to the United States. So much for our friends to the north. Fortunately, the trailer axle was American made, and etrailer.com was able to provide me with everything I needed to make the trailer roadworthy; with higher quality parts and at less cost. And the hubs had lugs, as opposed to the originals with just threaded holes; which makes installing the wheels much easier. What can I say? I'm now a fan of etrailer.com. 25203

Switched from a 4 lug rim to a 5 lug so I could run a larger tire, already had the rims but needed to change hubs. These hubs worker perfectly, they are of good quality and are well worth the price which is very reasonable. Order processing and shipment was very fast. I have no complains at all. Any parts I need in the future will be purchased from etrailer.com. Can't beat the service or product price. I highly recommend this retailer for your needs. 10673

Ask the Experts about this Dexter Axle Trailer Hubs and Drums

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


  • 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. Item # 8-258BTUC1 is the standard hub assembly kit, which includes lug nuts, inner bearings and race, outer bearings and race,...

  • Bearings and Seal Recommendation for Dexter 3,000 lb Axle
  • Thanks for the picture of the tag on your Dexter trailer axle. From that I can tell you have a 3,000 lb Dexter axle. There isn't a kit available, but I was able to find each of the components you need, which are available individually. You will need bearing # LM67048 and matching race # LM67010, along with bearing # L44649 and matching race # L44610. For a grease seal you need # 58846, along with grease cap # 21-41-1 and cotter pin # 165649. For replacement brake assemblies you'd...

  • Replacement Spindles and Hubs for Trailer with L44643 Bearings
  • In most cases it's easier and less money/headache to just replace the entire axle. Welding on spindles is a specialized job that only certain welders have equipment for and by time you go that route it's just easier to replace the axle. But that being said square axles are harder to find as that's not the common shape. You'd have to find a local trailer shop to you who can order you in custom axles though as we don't have what you are looking for. For new hubs though the part #...

  • How to Determine Bolt Pattern of a Trailer Wheel
  • I attached a link that details how to determine bolt pattern on a wheel or hub to the right for you to check out. But based on the measurement you took it sounds like you most likely have a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern since that is what is the closest bolt pattern to the measurement you took. You can verify this by measuring from the center of one bolt hole to the one adjacent to it, if it measures 2-5/8 inches it's a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern.

  • 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.

  • Changing Trailer from Hub-Centric Rims with Bolts to Lug-Centric Rims with Studs and Nuts
  • Your original rims are the hub-centric type, meaning that the pilot hole in the center of the rim provides the centering for the rim on the hub. In the lug-centric type that you are switching to the centering of the rim on the hub is provided by the alignment of the lugs. As long as your new rims have a pilot hole that is larger than the center of the hub (to fit over it) and your wheel studs line up and thread on properly then you are all set.

If it is on the same axle, as long as it is functional with the same hubs, you will just need to get the correct bearings for each spindle to make things continue to function properly. The Dexter Hubs like # 8-258BTUC1 can have different bearings and races on the inside. With one straight spindle...

  • Can 15 inch Wheels be Used with a 2,000-lb Trailer Axle
  • It doesn't necessarily have to do with the axle-to-wheel size as much as it does the hub-to-wheel size. Most, but not all, hubs rated for a 2,000-lb axle are compatible with smaller wheel and usually have an 8" - 12" wheel range. As you found, sometimes that is not always the case. The part # 8-258BTUC1 that you referenced is compatible with 13" - 15" wheels that have a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern. If this hub fits your axle and your wheel is compatible with it then you can definitely...

  • How To Determine The Correct Hub Assembly For A 1995 EZ-Loader Trailer
  • The easiest way to determine what hub assembly you will need for your axle is to get the part numbers of the inner and outer bearings and the grease seal part number from the hub assembly that is on the trailer now. If you do not have the old bearings, you will need to measure the spindle on your trailer to determine the size bearings that you will need, and what hub assembly will work. Trailer hub assemblies are not a universal fit. You will also want to check the hub journal length...

  • Replacement Hub for a Pontoon Boat Trailer
  • I am almost certain that the bearings you have, if both the same, are L44649 bearings with a 1.063 inner diameter. What I really need to know at this point is the inner diameter of the seal, not the outer. Using a set of digital or dial calipers will provide and accurate measurement. You can also measure the spindle with the calipers. I will need the measurements shown in the picture I have included.

  • How to Select New Hubs for 2005 Karavan Trailer
  • Thank you for providing a photo of your trailer's bearing, which is part # L44649. Selection of new hubs requires you to match several characteristics of your current hubs: the bearing set used, bolt pattern of the hub, grease seal part number and axle weight rating. Based on your bearing number the kit you referenced, # 8-258BTUC1, is not a correct fit since it uses different bearings. For a kit with your same L44649 bearings you can use Dexter Trailer Hub Assembly # 8-258-5UC1. This...

  • Recommended Trailer Hub with 1-1/4 Diameter Inner Bearing and 3/4 Diameter Outer Bearing
  • To recommend the correct hub drum for your application, I would need to know a little more information. First I will need to know your current hub bolt pattern. In order to determine your hub drum bolt pattern, you would need to measure center to center on bolts directly across from each other on the circle. If you have an odd number of bolts, measure from the center of any bolt to the point halfway between the two bolts directly across from it on the circle. The first number of your...

  • Can Bearings for # 8-258-5UC1 Hub Be Swapped with L44643 Bearings
  • We offer two different 5 lug 4-1/2 bolt circle idler hubs for 2000 lb axles, one that uses the L44649 bearing that has a 1.063 inside diameter and the other uses the L44643 bearing that has a 1 inch inside diameter. The # 8-258-5UC1 hub you are using has the L44649 bearings, which have a 1.063 inside diameter, you would need the # 8-258BTUC1 hub. Unfortunately, the bearings are NOT interchangeable between the two hubs and you will need to replace the hubs with the # 8-258BTUC1.

  • Which 5 Bolt Hub Assembly is Recommended for Use with the Redline Spindle # R104BT8
  • On the Redline Spindle, part # R104BT8, the hub assembly you would need is an idler hub assembly. An idler hub assembly does not have an integrated brake drum. It will also depend on what size wheel and tire you will be using. If you need an idler hub assembly with a 5 bolt pattern you can use the Dexter hub # 34822545BX. This is a idler hub assembly with a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern that will work on 2000lb axles. It will only work with 8 inch to 10 inch wheels. If you need an...

  • How to Determine the Correct Replacement Hub and Spindle for a 2007 Snowbear Trailer
  • In order to determine the correct hubs and spindles used on your trailer you will want to pull one of the hubs and get the inner and outer bearing numbers stamped into the bearings. I will also need to know the bolt pattern required. I have included a couple of links that should help you. Spindles can be tricky to replace since they are welded to the axle. The removal and installation of a spindle should be performed by a qualified professional with experience working on trailers.
