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 Review of etrailer Trailer Hubs and Drums - Pre Greased Hub - AKIHUB-545-2-LF-1K

Jeff: Hello everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're going to take a look at this pre greased trailer idler hub for 2000 pound axles. Has the five on four and a half inch bolt pattern. Now this trailer idler hub assembly, designed to fit idler axles, it is a pre-greased hub, which makes it easy to install. There's no need to pack your bearings with grease.

It'll come to you already greased with the lithium complex multipurpose grease. It will include a pre-greased inner and outer bearing, and they use the same inner outer bearing part number. It's part number L44643. The bearing races will be pre-installed with the bearings right in, and it does have the pre-installed grease seal on the back here. It's part number 34823.

Will come with this grease cap, and as you can see the five half inch by 20 size lug nuts.Now this is a sturdy iron construction. They do use a zinc enriched paint on this hub to add durability, and it is QAI and CSA certified. Few specs again, it's designed to fit 2000 pound trailer axles with the BT8 spindles. It is compatible with standard axles from most manufacturers, including Dexter, Lippert, and Alco. The hub diameter is 6.25 inches.

So it will fit 13 inch to 15 inch wheels. And the bolt pattern again on this is five and four and a half inches. The wheel stud diameter is a half an inch. So these half inch lug nuts will go on there, screw on there to hold your wheel to your assembly. And the weight capacity on this hub is 1000 pounds, so when this is used with one on the other side of your axle, they'll meet the 2000 pound axle capacity.But that should do it for the review on the pre-greased trailer idler hub for 2000 pound axles, and it has the five on four and a half inch bolt pattern..

It looks like a quality product and the price was great. I installed this product immediately and upgraded from a four lug hub to five. It allowed me to upgrade my wheel and tire combo at the same time. Everything needed was included with the kit and was an exact fit. The only suggestion I have would be to improve the paint job as mine were flaking. I covered it with a coat of Rustoleum prior to install. 585687

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Trailer Hubs and Drums

  • 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.

  • Trailer Idler Hub with 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern that Fits a 1 Inch Diameter Straight Spindle
    To find the right replacement hub for a trailer you will need the inner and outer bearing numbers stamped into the sides of the bearings or the measurements of the spindle to 3 decimal places. The measurements have to be as accurate as possible so I recommend using digital calipers # PTW80157. I included a picture that shows where to measure. If the spindle diameter is 1 inch the whole length where the bearings ride then hub # AKIHUB-545-35-K will not fit. It takes 2 different bearing...

  • Upgrading Tire Size on a Harbor Freight Trailer
    I do have a solution for you, but we do not recommend using vehicle tires on a trailer. Trailer tires are built with stronger sidewalls to help resist the load that is put on them, while vehicle tires are made for a more smooth ride. Also, we do not carry spacers that are intended to make your tire and wheel stick out so that it can clear your trailer frame. To find out if you can upgrade your tires and wheels with your current setup, you can take the outer diameter and section width...

  • 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern Idler Hub Compatible with 15 Inch Rim and L44643 Inner and Outer Bearings
    For a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern hub that's compatible with a spindle that uses the # L44643 as both the inner and outer bearing, I'd recommend the # AKIHUB-545-2-LF-1K from Axle Tech. The hub is compatible with 13-15 inch rims, so it'll work just fine for you. Races, bearings, grease cap and lug nuts are included. The hub includes a # 34823 grease seal, which has a 1.249 inner diameter. To ensure this will work for you, use a digital caliper like # PTW80157 to measure the diameter...
