E-Z Lube and Easy Grease-Compatible Assembly 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"

Excellent kit. Simply take off old hub and slide the new hub on. Comes pre-packed with what appears to be Lubrimax (green) marine grease.

Purchased for a spare hub assembly to carry in vehicle for possible bearing or seal failure during fishing trips. Much easier to get back on road versus seal and bearings replacement on road.

Product was a great fit, easy to install if you know what you are doing. Took only 10 minutes to repack bearings and assemble.

Received parts yesterday and everything arrived in excellent condition. Without etrailer's helpful guides it would have taken a lot longer to identify the correct Hub's and bearing's that I needed for my jet ski trailer. I always go to etrailer for my trailer needs!!!! I have a jet ski trailer, boat trailer, and 36.5 foot 5th wheel camper. So I'm always needing parts!!!

Great service and prices



- AKIHUB-545-2-LFEZ-2K

We pack the bearings in these hubs and carry them along for spare, ready to install on the trailer if bearing goes bad while on the road. We use these trailers for trips from northern Indiana to south florida, than to Iowa. Then back to Indiana. So its a lot faster to just change the whole hub when you have trouble.

Great price, good quality. This is the same hube as AKIHUB-545-2-2k, but NOT pre-assembled and pre-greased. Perfect if you want to do this work yourself or need to do work on the hubs prior to usage.

  • Recommended Hubs for Small Trailer with 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern
    Since you provided the bolt pattern and bearing numbers we won't be needing the pictures. The hub assembly I suggest is the idler hubs # AKIHUB-545-2-LFEZ-2K. These are rated for 2,000 pounds and include the bearings, races, seal, grease cap, and lug nuts. For the same kit for standard spindles instead of the E-Z Lube use # AKIHUB-545-2-LF-2K.

  • 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. The AKIHUB-545-2-LFEZ-2K hub that fits 13-15" wheels is 6.25" compared to Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2,000-lb E-Z Lube Axles part...
