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"

I’m really impressed with the high level of service that I’ve received from etrailer! Great customer service regarding ordering correct replacement hubs/bearings! Fast free shipping and overall positive experiences ( 2- orders)! 937044

- AKIHUB-545-2-G-EZ-2K

Good product, installed as it should, and arrived in a timely manner. The only thing was that the grease seal was the wrong size. It was probably my oversight. 935729

- AKIHUB-545-2-G-EZ-2K

The seal provided did not fix my axle ( I should have measured it before I ordered). Good looking hub with bearing races installed! 895694

- AKIHUB-545-2-G-EZ-2K

I had to replace all the hubs after two years of minimal usage. The manufacturer had assembled the axles without washers and spun all bearings and races! They didn't even use galvanized hubs. Quick delivery and exact fit! Thank you etrailer!!! 867817

Excellent service and superior material for this hub. Fit right on and works awesome! Pleasure doing business with you! 699702

- AKIHUB-545-2-G-EZ-2K

The hub is still going strong after a year of regular use. I keep it greased and it does the rest. The price was right, too. This hub with bearings and seals was about the same price as the bearings alone at the local auto parts dealer. I do have two small negatives, neither of which take a star off my review. One, the dust cap fits very tightly and is hard to get on the first time. I had to grind the edges just a bit for it to go on. Second, the grease seal with the kit didn't fit my axle, although the bearings did. Check on this if your axle is a bit different. I don't remember the dimensions, but it was the ID of the seal that was too big. 673948

- AKIHUB-545-2-G-EZ-2K

Everything arrived in good order and condition. What has really impressed me with etrailer is the customer service. I received emails from real people answering my questions and keeping me up to date with my order status. I even got a phone call from the shipping person making sure they facilitated my order in the best way possible for me. Count me as being really impressed!!!! I will be ordering all of my trailering supplies from your company in the future. I wish more companies ran this way. Great experience! 650312

- AKIHUB-545-2-G-EZ-2K

Exact replacement for my old hubs. Everything fit perfect and made the installation go quick. Great site. I love how all the dimensions of the bearings and seals are shown. That way I know exactly what to get to complete the job. 613478

- AKIHUB-545-2-G-EZ-2K

Looks good and easy to install ,came with everything I needed. 608863

- AKIHUB-545-2-G-EZ-2K

The grease seal was the wrong size for my axle. May have been my fault not sure. Had to uninstall and get new seals and reinstall. Of course it was 0 degrees out! 597680

Good to know that you were able to get the correct size grease seals for your axle. This kit includes the inner grease seal 10-9 that has an inner diameter of 1.5 and outer diameter of 1.987.
-- Rachael H - 01/15/2019


- AKIHUB-545-2-G-EZ-2K

I had no problem putting these new hubs on my Shortland'r PWC trailer. The inner grease seals that come with the package had to be swapped out for a different size, but that was a small added cost. The studs are plenty long for the wheels I have and with a shallow depth lug wrench, you might lose a little of the overlap on the lug nut. 577800

Fast Shipping! Product is good quality and the kit included everything I needed to get my trailer serviced. 498535

  • Replacement Hubs with L44649 Bearings on Snowmobile Trailer
    Based on the information and pictures you provided (thank you!) either the etrailer.com 2K Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-545-2-EZ-2K or the Galvanized # AKIHUB-545-2-G-EZ-2K you referenced would work great as replacements, the only physical difference between the two being their finish. Since you primarily use the trailer in the winter and on salty roads, I do think the Galvanized # AKIHUB-545-2-G-EZ-2K is your best option, as it's just going to do a better job of resisting corrosion...

  • How to Choose Correct Trailer Hub Replacement
    Axle capacity is just one of the things you will need to know in order to choose the correct hub, but using that alone won't ensure a fit, there are a number of things you'll need to get the right hub. Along with the capacity of the axle, you also need to know what bearings your current hub has. You will need to take apart your 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...

  • How to Determine Replacement Hubs for Home Built Trailer
    Unfortunately yes, you'll have to pull the hubs to get the bearing numbers. The hub assemblies you referenced, part # AKIHUB-545-2-G-EZ-2K, include a grease cap with a rubber plug that is removable. This allows you to access the zerk fitting on your trailer's spindle, if you have one. If you have a zerk fitting on the spindles then you have E-Z lube axles. I've attached pictures of both spindles for you to see the difference. If you don't have E-Z Lube axles instead the same hub...

  • Replacement Hub for 1989 Ranger Trailer
    Judging by your photo, your trailer would use an idler hub, not a hub drum. Assuming you have 5 lug on 4-1/2 inch bolt circle wheels that use an # L44649 inner and outer wheel bearing, you have a few choices. Rather than the painted hub, I'd recommend going with a galvanized hub for greater corrosion resistance. Dexter hubs are manufactured in the US, which is what I'd recommend. For an 8, 10 or a 12 inch wheel, use # 8-259-50UC1 for a standard spindle or # 8-259-50UC1-EZ for the EZ...

  • Difference Between Hubs Designed For 8-10 Wheels and Hubs Designed For 13-15 Wheels
    The difference between a hub that fits a 8-10" wheel like part # 34822545BX and 13-15" wheels like part # AKIHUB-545-2-LFEZ-2K is normally the hub diameter but that is not always the case. Some hubs are designed for larger wheels because the diameter of the idler hub is larger. Some manufacturers label their hubs to only be used with certain wheel sizes.

    I'm guessing you actually have bearings # L44649 and you either mistyped or the bearing number is difficult to read.

If you need to verify to be sure this is what you have measure the inner diameter of the bearings with a digital caliper, like part # PTW80157. It should meaure 1.063 inches.
