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 Trailer Hubs and Drums 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.

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


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.

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 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

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

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

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


Ive been towing that little trailer around for over a year and the parts I ordered are holding up just perfect. Thanks again!

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

by: Mark D.10/17/2016

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

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

by: Caleb03/13/2013

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

by: C.B.02/14/2015

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

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

I rec my hubs today and installed same. Thank you for such quick delivery. I like the 'tracking' as well--makes it ez to plan ahead. Installation tip: I had trouble installing the cups,so I inserted the cup backwards in the old hub,then placed open cup against new hub and tapped w/ hammer and it went right in,no problem because equal pressure all around!! :)) I used the old hub as a tool. 59829

by: Mike08/03/2015

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

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: Tom L07/24/2012

Price was reasonable and they fit and perform well. I used these to upgrade an oddball 5 on 4.25 bolt pattern 2000lb axle to the more common 5 on 4.5 pattern. The hubs essentially paid for themselves in the decreased cost of replacement tires and wheels (would have to have had tires mounted/balanced locally which greatly increased the price). 49186

by: GearHead Engineering05/13/2013

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

by: Ben T04/11/2012

The hubs installed in about an hour for both sides. Everything was included and races already installed. The only thing I wish the kit provided was a tang washer. I'll be buying another to keep as a spare on the trailer. 36839

Ask the Experts about this Dexter Axle Trailer Hubs and Drums
Do you have a question about this Trailer Hubs and Drum?

  • 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....

  • 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.

  • How to Remove Bearing Races on a Trailer Hub
  • The bearing races on a trailer hub, like the Trailer Hub Assembly, part # 8-258-5UC1, are removable, they are not built into the hub. I am including a link to a FAQ page on wheel bearings, races, and seals. Also, a link to a video of removing and reinstalling bearings, races, and seals. It will show, starting at the 2 minute and 5 second mark, how to remove a bearing race. You might also try to rent from an auto parts store a bearing/race removal and installation tool, or you might see...

  • Determining Axle Weight Capacity for Boat Trailer with 1-3/4-inch x 2-3/4-inch Rectangular Axle
  • Typically boat trailers with 13-inch tires and a 5-on-4-1/2-inch wheel bolt pattern will have either 2000-lb- or 3500-lb-rated axles. The link provided will show you examples of hub-and-drum assemblies with your bolt pattern and wheel size range that fall into these two weight categories. For example, Dexter hub # 84545BX is for 3500-lb axles while # 8-258-5UC1 is for 2000-lb-rated axles. The hub assembly you referenced, part # 42655UC1 from Dexter, has a 6-on-5-1/2-inch bolt pattern...

We have found that your trailer has inner bearing L68149, ID 1.378, race OD 20362, outer bearing L44649 ID 1.063, and race OD 1.980. I recommend the Dexter Trailer Hub Assembly # 8-247-50UC3-EZ.

  • Which Hub fits an Outer Bearing L44649 and Outer Race L44610
  • Trailer hubs have two bearings, one is referred to as the inner bearing, closer to the trailer. The outer bearing is the one furthest from the trailer. If we have both of these bearing numbers we can identify which spindle or hub is needed. So far you have L44649 as your outer bearing and L44610 as your outer race. We carry 8 hubs that use outer bearing L44649. Your inner bearing should either be another L44649 or an L68149. Once you provide us with the second bearing number, I can provide...

  • Identifying Correct Replacement Hubs for 1995 ProCraft Single Axle Boat Trailer
  • Based on my research ProCraft was bought out by a competitor and is no longer in production. I was not able to find a confirmed source for their trailer specs. However, you can identify a correct replacement hub using the part numbers from the original components and by confirming the axle weight rating for your particular trailer.

  • Is it Advisable to Replace Both Boat Trailer Hubs on Venture Single-Axle Boat Trailer
  • Primarily for safety reasons, we always recommend replacing both sides of trailer axle components, whether brake assemblies, bearings, races, hubs or all of the above. This will ensure even performance. It will also provide a similar future working lifespan for both sides of the axle, which will avoid the potential need to have to soon repeat the dis-assembly/repair process. Venture offers both single- and tandem-axle boat trailers. Based on your description I presume you have a single-axle...

  • Which 5 Lug and 6 Lug Hubs Use Inner Bearing # L68149 and Outer Bearing # L44649
  • For a hub with a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern you would want a Trailer Hub Assembly # 84545UC1-EZ. This hub uses a # L68149 as an inner and a # L44649 as an outer. For a hub with a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern you would want a Trailer Hub Assembly # 84655UC1. This hub uses a # L68149 as an inner and a # L44649 as an outer. I attached a video on how to remove and install a trailer hub for you to check out also.

  • Availability of Trailer Hub That is 4 Inches Long, Has 1-1/16 Inch Bearings, 4 on 4 Bolt Pattern
  • The best way to determine the correct replacement hub assemblies for your trailer is to retrieve the bearing numbers stamped into the metal of both the inner and outer bearings. With those numbers, we can find which hubs would be a correct fit. I am including a link to a video that will show you how to remove, inspect, and reinstall trailer bearings, races, and seals. I have the Dexter Trailer Hub Assembly, part # 8-91-05UC1 which has a 4 on 4 bolt pattern. It uses the TruRyde Bearing,...

  • Grease Cap Recommendation for a Harbor Freight Trailer 90154
  • The 2.09 grease cap that you tried might be the one to use. They are supposed to be a tight fit and require being tapped in with a hammer and a flat piece of wood like a 2x4. There is a Bearing Buddy that fits right between the two sizes you have tried though. The part # BB2047SS has an outer diameter of 2.047 inches.

  • Replacing Trailer Hubs on Loadrite Trailer
  • From the dimensions you gave me, the Trailer Hub Assembly for 2000 lb Axle, 5 on 4-1/2 should fit. It has a 6-1/2 inch diameter hub flange. I measured the depth, and it is 4-1/4 inches (2 inches on each side of the flange, and the flange itself is 1/4 inch thick). If you take a look at your bearings, they should have a number stamped on them. This is the easiest way to match up a replacement hub. The hub I am suggesting fits L44649 bearings.

  • Can Trailer Hubs Have Different Size Inner and Outer Bearings
  • Yes, hubs use different size bearings for the inner and outer bearings pretty frequently. The inner bearing will be the bigger size if there are two different size bearings.

  • What Bearings And Hubs Are Needed On A Dexter Axle On A 1996 Coleman Pop-Up Camper
  • 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. Dexter Hub, # 8-258-5UC1 inner/outer bearing # L44649 Inner bearing dimension is 1.063 inches seal # 10-9 Inner seal dimension is 1.500 inches Dexter Hub, # 8-258BTUC1 inner/outer bearing # L44643 Inner bearing dimension is 1.00 inches seal # 34823 Inner seal dimension is 1.249 inches If...

  • Replacement Hub for Trailer With Timken 158123 Inner and 09067 Outer Bearing
  • I looked through our selection of hubs and hub/drums, and couldn't find anything compatible with the bearings you mentioned. This leaves you with two alternatives. Number one would be to cut off your existing spindles and install spindles like # R2061-284 that would be compatible with a standard hub like # 84545BX. The hub has the same number of lugs and bolt circle as your existing hubs, so you could use the same wheels. Removing the old spindles and welding the new ones into place...

  • 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...

  • Replacement Hub Needed for Harbor Freight Trailer
  • Why were you wanting to swap to a larger wheel? Keep in mind that simply swapping out to a larger wheel won't in and of itself increase the capacity of the trailer (if that's your intention). The capacity of the trailer will be limited to the capacity of the lowest rated component. In order to change hubs, you'll need to identify the inner and outer bearing reference numbers and see if your can find a hub that uses the same inner and outer bearing. Knowing the GVWR (found on the data...

  • Replacement Hub for a Haul Master Kit Trailer
  • I will need to know the inner and outer bearing numbers stamped into the metal of the bearings along with the bolt pattern of the hub to determine if we have a replacement that will fit. Most of the kit trailers such as the Haul Master branded trailers use non-standard parts that are only available through the manufacturer if at all. You have a couple of options if the hub on your trailer happens to be one of the non-standard models: First, to obtain the right size replacement parts...

  • Looking for Replacement Hubs for Boat Trailer with 1.06 Inch Diameter Spindles
  • Since you successfully measured your spindles, it sounds like you might have a digital caliper lying around somewhere. Measure the hub bore (inside diameter of hub where grease cap sits). If this diameter is 1.98 inches, your existing bearings are # L44649, in which case the # 8-258-5UC1 hub you referenced would indeed be a correct replacement. Since the hubs are going on a boat trailer, I'd recommend you use galvanized hubs like part # 8-259-50UC1. The hubs are identical to the ones...

  • Raising a Jayco Tent Trailer for More Ground Clearance and Using Larger Tires and Wheels
  • First, I do not recommend using a spacer to raise the trailer because doing so is going to affect the deflection of the suspension leaf springs and could lead to premature wear. If you want to raise the trailer height a safer way there is an option. You can have taller hangers welded on to get more height. I have linked the hanger main page for you. Please note that raising the trailer height in any way is going to raise the center of gravity and the trailer will be more likely to sway. You...

  • Replacement Hubs for 1994 Shelby Haulin Trailer
  • To find the correct hub for you, I will need to know the wheel bearing numbers or an accurate measurement of the spindle with a digital caliper. I will also need to know the bolt pattern of the hubs you are replacing. The cages that the wheel bearings sit in should have a reference number stamped on the back of them (see diagram). I will also provide you a diagram showing where on the spindle the measurements need to be taken. You will also want to make sure that your spindles are...

  • How to Determine if Trailer Wheels are Hub or Lug Centric
  • Simply put, if the hubs have studs that pass through the wheels, and lug nuts are used to fasten the wheel to the hub, you have a lug-centric wheel. As long as the pilot diameter of the wheel you use is larger than the portion of the hub that passes through the wheel, you will be just fine. A hub centric wheel will use lug bolts that pass through the wheel from the outside and thread into the hub. The pilot diameter of the wheel needs to be just a bit larger than the outside diameter...

  • Replacement Trailer Hub with L44649 Inner and Outer Bearings and 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern
  • You have already done the hard part, which is getting the bearing numbers. With those numbers and the bolt pattern you have provided, we have 2 possible hubs that could work as replacements, depending on the trailer wheel size. If your trailer has 12 inch to 15 inch wheels, then you can use the Trailer Hub Assembly, # 8-258-5UC1, that you have referenced. If your trailer has 8 to 10 inch wheels, you will need Trailer Hub Assembly # 8-259-5UC1.

  • Need Replacement Trailer Idler Hub for 3500-lb Axle Using Outer Bearing # L44649
  • If your current axle is rated at 3500-lbs and your hubs use a 5-on-4-1/2 bolt pattern and outer bearing # L44649, then we have two options for replacement hubs. These hub kits include the hub and wheel stud assembly, lug nuts, grease seal, pre-installed inner and outer races, inner and outer bearings, and a grease cap. It is usually very hard to measure used grease seals since by the time they are removed from the spindle they can become deformed or misshapen. Original part numbers...

  • Is There a Hub Available with L44649 an LM11749 Bearings
  • It sounds like you might have an older agricultural hub and spindle on your trailer based on the LM11749 bearing that you referenced as I can not find any information on hubs with that bearing number. I am going to send you a separate email that is going to have a picture of a spindle with measurements on it. If you could use a dial caliper and give me those measurements I would be able to know for sure if there is a hub that I could recommend for you.
