E-Z Lube and Easy Grease-Compatible Hub for Simple Lubrication

The grease cap on this hub is specially designed to work with your Dexter E-Z Lube or etrailer Easy Grease 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"

I bought this assembly because the old ones were rusted out and frozen. After all of the hard work of taking off the old rusty hubs, these went on in no time and work perfectly. I'd buy them again if needed.

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Trailer Hubs and Drums

  • Finding Correct Trailer Wheels to Match Hubs for a BT8 Spindle
    You're correct that all of the 8 inch rims we carry have a pilot hole that's in the range of 2.8 inches. Not nearly as large as the 3.275 inches you need. The best solution I recommend is replacing the hubs, unfortunately. I recommend part # AKIHUB-545-2-1K for standard spindles or part # AKIHUB-545-2-EZ-1K for EZ Lube spindles. I don't recommend boring out the pilot hole of the rim or grinding down the hub. It will very likely compromise the integrity of either part.

  • Recommended 5.70-8 Tire and Wheel with Compatible Hub for Axle
    We do have some options for you to add a 5.7-8 size tire and a hub to your trailer. For a wheel/tire combination I recommend going with the Kenda 5.70-8 Bias Trailer Tire with Wheel # AM30155. This has a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern and comes with a load range of D (1,075 lbs at 100 psi). Since 8" wheels are typically installed on 2,000 lb axles you would need the hub assembly # AKIHUB-545-2-EZ-1K if you have L44643 bearings or assembly # AKIHUB-545-2-EZ-2K for L44649 bearings. Both options...

    The Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-545-2-EZ-1K you were looking at does not include a spindle nut, but does include new bearings # L44643, races, grease seal, grease cap, and lug nuts.
