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 wish I had taken before and after photos of my trailer. A typical 5x8 utility trailer with the extruded wire mesh deck which I got for a bargain, perfect for my lawn tractor or 4 wheeler. However the 8" wheels did not provide enough ground clearance for the terrain where I intended to use it as a equipment hull trailer to our deer camp, pulled by the 4 wheeler. After finding etrailer.com my problems were solved! I ordered 5 bolt hubs, 5.30 x12" wheels and the economy plastic fenders and fender brackets. While waiting my order I wire wheeled the frame and gave it a fresh coat of paint and WHAL-LA! I have a new looking trailer! The order arrived in record time, securely packaged and great quality! I ordered the pre-packed hubs and didn't have to get into that sticky mess! Everything worked out as planned and was easy-peezy to assemble and install. I'll definitely use etrailer.com in the future. 720640

Fits perfect!!!!! I should have done this first instead of buying bearings and unable to remove the old bad race. While trying to remove the old race I cracked the hub and destroyed it. Then to make matters worse went to the local farm store and got what seemed like the right thing...but it was wrong too. Would have saved myself a lot of aggravation had I did my research on etrailer.com and got the right thing first. The Q&A section got me right what I needed. 10 min on the site I had ordered exectly what I needed. It arrived in two days. Almost faster than the farm store. I have spent more than two days returning parts. I will go with etrailer.com from now on. 381730

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


  • Trailer Idler Hub for 2,000 Pound Axle and 13 Inch Tires
  • There isn't enough surface area on hub # AKIHUB-545-2-1K to safely mount and use a 13 inch wheel. The hub would have to be larger to properly support a 13 inch wheel. For a hub that uses the same bearings, can take a 13 inch wheel, and also has a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern we have # AKIHUB-545-2-LFEZ-1K for EZ Lube axles or # AKIHUB-545-2-LF-1K for regular axles.

  • Replacement Hubs For Trailer With 3/4 Inch Outer Diameter Spindle That Is Straight
  • The only hub we have that is currently available for a 3/4 inch spindle is Item # AH15450ECOMP. This is an agricultural hub that fits 3,000 lbs axles for 4 on 5 inch bolt pattern. It takes an inner bearing, Item # LM67048, and outer bearing, Item # LM11949. It is meant to be used for low speed (less than 20 mph) agricultural applications. It is designed for a spindle like Item # AS1500E. If you can find the actual bearing number on your old bearings and seal or can send me a bearing...

  • Replace Hub Assemblies With Bearing Buddies For A 2,000 Lb. Trailer Axle
  • Our 2,000 lb. trailer axles use both 1" and 1.06" diameter spindles. In order to determine you are receiving the correct hub assembly, you will want to use a digital caliper like part # PTW80157 to ensure you have an exact measurement. If the spindle on your trailer measures out to be 1" in diameter, then you have a 2,000 lb. axle that uses the L44643 bearing. For a 5 on 4-1/2" hub assembly designed to be used with a 2,000 lb. axle and L44643 bearings, I recommend using the Trailer...

  • Are the Redline Spindle # R104BT8 and etrailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-545-2-2K Compatible
  • The Redline Spindle # R104BT8 and our Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-545-2-2K are not compatible, but you could use the Redline EZ Lube Spindle # R104BTREZ instead as it has the correct spindle measurements. For a hub that will work with the Redline Spindle # R104BT8 you can use part # AKIHUB-545-2-1K. To determine if a hub is compatible with a specific spindle you will need to make sure that the inner diameters of the Inner Bearing, Outer Bearing, and Grease Seal of the hub...

  • Can I Upgrade From 8 Inch to 15 Inch Wheels On a Boat Trailer
  • It is possible to switch from 8" wheels to 15" wheels yes but, in addition to fender clearance issues you will also run into not having enough surface area on the hub for the larger wheel size. For example, the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly part # AKIHUB-545-2-1K which is common on 2,000 lb axles and what I suspect you have only has enough surface area to work with 12" wheels max. Therefore, in order to upgrade to 15" wheels you will also likely need to upgrade hubs as well as fenders. In...

  • Locating Replacement Hubs that Use Same Inner and Outer Bearing
  • In order to locate the correct replacement hub assembly for your trailer, you will want to determine what bearing numbers are used on your existing hubs. These numbers should be stamped right inside the bearings themselves. If you cannot locate these numbers, you can also take a few measurements along the spindle using the attached image as a template. You did mention that the inner and outer bearings on your trailer are the same size, but you will still want to determine their specific...

  • Replacement Hubs that Can Fit 2,000 lb Axle with 5 Lug Bolt Pattern

Take the hub off of your current axle and measure the diameter of the spindle where the bearings ride. If this dimension is 1 inch then this is the correct fit. If for some reason you get a different dimension let me know and...

  • How to Determine if Trailer Can Switch to 5-Lug Hubs
  • To do this you would need to switch your hubs from the current ones that have a 4-bolt pattern to ones with a 5-bolt pattern. This may be possible but you need to know the weight rating of your axle, and also what bearings the current hub has. You will need to take apart the current hub assembly and look at the bearings themselves; wipe away the grease and you should be able to see the part number stamped directly on them. If you are unable to find them, you need to use a digital caliper...

  • Replacement Hub and Easy Lubrication Kit for 2,000 lb Axle

If you would like a solution that is easier than standard grease application (packing your bearings) then I recommend going with some Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors. These are perfect for solutions where EZ Lube spindles aren't in place as they provide a grease zerk fitting as well as a way to see when you have pumped enough grease into your hub space (see...

We have however found there are times when the bearing buddies # BB2047 specifically has fit. We haven't confirmed a fit on that model yet, so you will need to measure the hub bore of the hubs on your trailer. If the hub bore is 2.047 then these will work for you. For a hub and bearings, you would need to pull the hub and look at the bearing numbers....
