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.

Video Transcript for Dexter Axle Trailer Hubs and Drums - Hub - 8-259-5UC1-EZ Review

Today we're going to review part number 8-259-5UC1-EZ. This is the EZ Lube Trailer Hub Assembly for 8-inch to 10-inch wheels that use a 2,000-pound axle with a 5 on 4 1/2-inch bolt pattern. Now, this part will include everything shown here. This includes the inner and outer bearings. It includes the races which are already pressed into the assembly. Here's for the outer bearing and here's the race in the back for the inner bearing.

It does also include grease seal which fits on the back there. It includes the 5, 1/2-inch nuts that fit on the wheel bolts on the Hub Trailer Assembly and it also includes this EZ Lube grease cap that has the rubber plug in the middle and basically the EZ Lube system helps it make it easier to lubricate the bearing because you don't have to take it apart to put grease in them.Basically, on an EZ Lube system, the spindle on the very end will have a grease Zerk Fitting. To access that Zerk Fitting you can remove this rubber plug and hook your grease on to that Zerk Fitting. This will be right here. The spindle would come through and then you could lubricate your assembly just that way.

That's why this is all included. This does have a nice paint finish on the hub assembly itself. Now, the application on this part is for 2,000-pound axles. The diameter of the hub flange which is the whole diameter. This part right here is 5 1/2 inches in diameter and that's for use with 8-inch to 10-inch wheels.Now, the bolt pattern which would be the measurement of how far these wheel bolts are from each other.

Basically, if you drew a circle between the center of each of these 5 wheel bolts and measure the diameter of that circle be 4 1/2 inches so that's why the bolt patter is considered a 5 log 4 1/2 inch bolt pattern. Now, the bearings, the inner and outer bearings on the assembly use the same part number. It's L44649. Basically, you just drop these into the race on the front. The same way on the back.

It would fit right in there. Now, the grease seal that would go on the back. In other words if you put in your bearing in there, your grease seal which would go on there and be capped in.It is a part number 10-9. It has the inner diameter right in here of 1 1/2 inches. Now, the grease cap we had mentioned. The diameter on that. This diameter here is 1.986 inches. Again, that is designed to fit on the outer section. And that plug would go right on the inside. Now, the capacity itself from this hub assembly is 1,250 pounds. When used with another one on the other side it would give you a total capacity of 2,500-pounds but again they're mainly designed to fit on 2,000-pound axle.Now, just a note to mention to you is that some axles that are rated at 2,000 pounds might require a different seal and bearings than this one here so you want to be sure that the bearings on the hub that you're replacing have the part number L44649 stamped on the inner and outer bearings. If the numbers on your bearings are different, then you would be to use a different hub assembly. This one would not work. That should do it for the review on part number 8-259-5UCi-EZ, the EZ Lube Trailer Hub Assembly for 8 to 10-inch wheels with 2,000-pound axles. .

Fit my seadoo boat trailer perfectly. The video on the page was very helpful and the parts a great quality. Dust cap was un useable because it was damaged (possibly from shipping ) the only thing that would make this kit better is if it was pre greased and came with a new pin. Overall I'm very happy with it. Shipping came exactly the day they said even in a rain storm. Had updates along the way . Will definitely use them again in the future for all my trailer needs ! 597815

For the most part everything was great and quality was good. One of the beating races was dented due to packaging. A smaller box and more material to keep everything from shifting would be better. Still, quick shipping and good quality. Will buy again from here. 593055

i was impressed with the speed that my order arrived. The tech was very helpful when the order was placed. I was disappointed that the bearing buddy was only a metal cylinder and did not contain a spring and zert fitting for continuous greasing. One of the packages was missing a black dust cover. One of the so called bearing buddies was bent. One of the spindles had a three eights inch area that was not polished. It looks like a tool broke during manufacturing or a possible defect during the pouring process. 444922

Still going strong! The past last year has a typo that I should have caught. The product was considerably LESS expensive from Etrailer than what I found locally. Sorry

The item was exactly what I ordered. My only concern was that the tires I had on my trailer were 13", and the hubs are labeled as for only 8 to 12" wheels. It didn't make any difference. It was the exact part and replacement that I needed using the old part number scribed into the back of the old hub. Thanks for a great match! 267982

I have a relatively lengthy trip coming up and wanted to have a spare hub with me should a problem develop in route. The offering was comprehensive but I did elect to remove an existing hub to be assured that I knew the actual bearing ID's. That done, selecting the right hub was easy. The price appeared appropriate and I placed an order. The hub was delivered ahead of schedule and in good condition. My only concern is that the hub and bearings were delivered without having been pre packed with grease. Not a deal breaker but it would have been nice. I will likely buy another hub in the spring. 236886

Hub itself is well made. Accompanying bearings are made in China. Races pre-installed. One race had a rusty nodule and left a rusty pit when removed. Out with the crap and in with Timkens. Price is great, but I suspect some would be willing to pay more if it came w/ Timken or SKF bearings. 215124

received the Dexter Hub ready for complete installation. Seems like a good value but havent installed it long enough to make any comment about the quality. The original hub stripped 4 of the 5 wheel studs when I tried to remove the wheel , and had to grind the back of the studs off to get the wheel seperated from the hub. 213503

Product looks good, shipping was very fast. etrailer was very easy to work with. The instruction video lacked a bit of detail regarding how hard to tap in the inner grease seal (first hub I've ever replaced). I'm still a bit unclear on this... 200886

My original hub cracked after I tried to install a replacement wheel bolt. Went up to E trailer and found the replacement hub VERY easily. Their tutorial video also clarified which wheel bearing I should have since the same hub is used in two different weight classes. UPS ground package came in two days, way ahead of what I was expecting. It was easier and faster than trying to locate in my area that could order it for me. This is the second time I have purchased items from E trailer and have nothing but praise for their efforts. 134563

If you are needing a hub and drum assembly then we have part # 8-257-5UC3-EZ from Dexter which fits the description you mentioned and is compatible with a 7" brake assembly. It comes with the EZ Lube grease cap, but that can be used for a standard spindle as well.

  • Replacement Trailer Hub for Dexter 8-259 Idler Hub
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • How to Select Hubs That Are Compatible with Trailer Spindle
  • To choose a compatible hub assembly for any spindle the key is knowing the inner and outer bearing part numbers, or if they are not available, precise dimensions of the spindle at the points where the bearings and grease seal ride. These points on the spindle are noted on the diagram I linked for you. Once you know the bearings this will tell you which hubs will fit properly. You also need to select hubs based on the weight load that will be put on them. It appears you have a fabricated...

  • 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.

  • Distance Between Bearings for Trailer Hub on an Old Snowmobile Trailer
  • The only difference between a trailer hub designed for any E-Z lube spindle and a trailer hub designed for a standard spindle is that the E-Z lube spindle will have a grease cap with a removable insert to allow for access to the grease fitting. The distance between the two bearings will be the same which is about 2-1/4" for modern spindles. There are E-Z lube spindles that use a d-ring washer and there are E-Z lube spindles that use a cotter pin, it's really just up to the discretion of...

  • Choosing Idler Hubs to Replace Rusted Brake Hub/Drums on Jet Ski Trailer
  • Yes, we can help you select compatible idler hubs for your jet ski trailer. Replacement idler hubs (hubs without a brake drum) can be selected by first confirming the axle's weight rating; this should be indicated on a plate or sticker on the axle itself, or on the trailer's VIN sticker. You need to choose hubs that are properly rated for the weight load that will be on them. You also need to match your wheels' bolt pattern.

For an axle of the same specs that can fit a 13 in ch wheel and has the same bolt pattern hub included you would want the # 20440I-EZ-72.

  • Where To Find Numbers For Replacement Bearings On Utility Trailer
  • Since the axle you have is a Dexter Model 8259 you can choose one of the hub assemblies we offer from the attached product page. If you have an EZ-Lube axle on your trailer you may want to check out part # 8-259-5UC1-EZ, or part # 8-259-50UC1-EZ. If you do not have an EZ-Lube axle take a look at part # 8-259-5UC1 or part # 8-259-50UC1. I have attached links to some product review videos for these kits you can take a look at.

  • Measurement Of Dexter Trailer Hub Assembly # 8-258-5UC1
  • The Trailer Hub Assembly # 8-258-5UC1 measures 4-1/4 inches from front to back. As long as you have the length on your spindle, you won't have any issue. That measurement is not including the grease cap, it is just the hub from edge to edge. There is 2 inches on either side of the hub face which is 1/4 inch thick.

I have attached a helpful article that explains replacing Bearing, Races and Seals on a trailer hub. I have also included a drawing that shows where you take measurements...

  • Replacement Hub Recommendation for Hub that Had L44649 Bearings
  • We carry the hub you would need for your trailer, but they do not have the bearings pre-installed. If it's an idler hub with a 4 on 4 inch bolt pattern you would need part # 8-91-05UC1-EZ. If it's a brake hub you would need part # 8-173-16UC3. For a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern idler hub you would want the part # 8-259-5UC1-EZ, or for a brake hub part # 8-257-5UC3-EZ. I attached a help article link and install video for replacing hubs for you to check out as well.

  • How To Determine Correct Bearings, Races, And Seals On Trailer Hub

The attached drawing shows where you can normally fine the numbers. If you do not have the original components, or if you are unable to find the part numbers, you can use a precision instrument like a digital caliper and measure the spindle on the locations noted in the attached drawing to make sure you select the correct...

  • Adding Larger Wheels to Trailer Hub Assembly with Same Bolt Pattern
  • You can add larger wheels to a trailer as long as you have the same bolt pattern and enough room for the larger size. The main clearance issues we find when putting larger wheels on a trailer is from the top of the tire to the fender and from the inside wall of the tire to the trailer wall/frame. Also you will want to keep the weight capacity in mind. Larger tires will typically have a higher weight rating. Tires with a higher weight rating will not increase the load carrying capacity...

  • Will Integral Cast Hubs/Wheels Fit on Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension ASR2000S01
  • The Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR2000S01 will accept hubs that use the same bearings that it does, inner and outer bearing # L44649. (This bearing has an inner diameter of 1.063-inches.) You can check your hubs to confirm that they use bearing L44649. If not you'll need new hubs like # 8-91-05UC1-EZ, 4-on-4 hubs that use inner and outer bearing L44649; or 5-on-4-1/2 hub # 8-259-5UC1-EZ. Some trailers may require reinforcement of the frame when using Timbren suspension...

  • What is the Largest Size Can I Upgrade My Trailer Tires To?
  • 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. You will need to take the measurements of the larger tires to measure and compare in order to ensure you...

  • Replacement Bearing and Hub Kit Recommendation for Aluma 5310
  • Your bearings having an inner diameter of 1-1/16 inch indicates you have a standard size spindle. The size matches the BTR spindle. The bearings part # L44649 that you referenced match what you'd need. For a hub that will fit this we have the part # 8-91-05UC1 for an idler hub with a 4 on 4 inch bolt pattern. Then if you need a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern instead you'd want the part # 8-259-5UC1-EZ.

  • Recommended Trailer Wheel Size for Carrying 88-lb Kayak and Other Items Totalling 300-lbs or Less
  • Tire size in itself does not mean that a tire is unsuitable for use on your kayak trailer which you'll be pulling long distances at highways speeds. Trailer tires are all rated for a maximum speed of 65-mph unless specified otherwise by their manufacturer, but they can vary significantly in how much of a weight load they can carry. Trailer tire load ranges are referred to by a letter code. Load range D tires can carry more weight than C tires, which in turn can carry more weight than Load...

  • Determining Which Replacement Hub Needed for 2001 Yacht Club Pontoon Boat Trailer
  • In order to recommend the correct replacement, I'll need to know whether you're looking for an idler hub (no brakes) or a hub/drum. I'll also need to know the reference numbers from the inner and outer wheel bearing. If you can't find the reference numbers or if they aren't readable, you'll need to use a highly accurate measuring device to measure the journal surfaces of the spindle where the inside diameter of the bearings ride. For instance, the # 8-259-5UC1-EZ idler hub is compatible...

  • Choosing a Replacement Hub for a Dexter Axle and 8-Inch Trailer Wheel
  • Choosing a hub to fit your 3500-lb Dexter axle and your 8-inch wheels requires matching up a few things to ensure compatibility. To make sure a hub will fit your axle's spindles you'll need to note the bearings used in your current hubs, both the inner and outer bearings. A new hub needs to use the same bearings. To ensure your 8-inch wheels will fit the new hub you'll need to match up the bolt pattern of the wheel and hub. The linked article will help. Once you know your bearing set...

  • How to Pick Out Replacement Hubs for a Trailer with 1980 Bearing Buddy
  • The 1.980 Bearing Buddy is very common on hubs that have L44649 bearings inner and outer like the part # 8-259-5UC1-EZ for a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern hub or part # 8-91-05UC1-EZ for a 4 on 4 inch bolt patter. However, your best option would be to remove the hubs and use a digital or dial caliper to measure where the bearings ride. If that dimension is 1.063 then either of the hubs I mentioned would work well for you as that would mean you have the BTR spindle.

  • Bearing Reference Number or Spindle Dimensions Needed to Choose Replacement Hub
  • The best way to provide the correct hub for your spindles is to compare the bearing numbers. Check your existing inner and outer bearings for their reference numbers (see photo). With those numbers, I can recommend the correct idler hub for you. If you cannot find the bearing number, we can still recommend the correct hub if you supply us with some precise measurements of the bearing and seal surface of your spindle. See picture.

  • Availability of a 1-1/4" Thick Spindle That is Compatible with the Trailer Hub Assembly # 84550BX
  • The closest that we have to a 1-1/4" thick spindle that is at least 4" long is the Redline Spindle # SP20484 which has a 1-1/2" x 4" stub and is compatible with the Dexter Axle Trailer Hub Assembly # 84550BX which has a 5 on 5" bolt pattern and is rated for 3,500 lbs.
