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 etrailer Trailer Idler Hub Assembly Installation

Speaker 1: Today we're gonna be taking a look at and showing you how to install trailer idler hub assembly for 3,500 pound axle, part number AKIHUB-545-35-K. This is also available in galvanized for marina applications, part number AKIHUB-545-35-G-K. This is also available in E-Z lube, part number AKIHUB-545-35-EZ-K. Also available in E-Z lube, galvanized for marina applications part number AKIHUB-545-35-G-EZ-K.This is what our hub assembly looks like installed on our trailer, it's gonna offer you an inexpensive, convenient way of having a complete new hub assembly where if you are looking to just replace your bearings you may have the added cost of hiring a shop to remove your old races from your old hubs in turn costing you more time and money by the time it's completed. Our hub kit is going to have the races already installed, it's gonna come with new bearings, new seals, caps, and new lug nuts, you're only gonna need grease and a few tools to get these installed.First thing we need to do to start our installation, I've gone ahead and removed the tire, we need to remove our hub. We're gonna remove this cap first, you're gonna take a small screwdriver and a mallet and we're gonna pop this cap off.

Just gonna work your way around, loosen it up. Then I'm gonna wipe off some of this grease, you can see there's a retaining ring right here that we've gotta remove. Take our screwdriver, we're just gonna pop that off and we're gonna hang onto this because we're gonna be putting this back on.We're gonna take a one and a half inch socket and they shouldn't be on there very tight and you're gonna want to hold onto this because we're gonna be reinstalling that also. Then you're gonna have your ring that goes up against your bearings and you're gonna want to hold onto that because we're gonna be reinstalling that also, we'll just slide our old hub off. After you get this cleaned off you want to make sure you check it for any gouges, nicks, anything like that to make sure it's not damaged.Now if you look on this inside of your hub you're gonna see that it kind of has an inset, what you want to do is pack grease in there so this is level.

You want some good bearing grease, and get this nice and coated inside the hub. Now we're gonna pack our large bearing, what you want to do is take some grease and put it on your hand like this and you'll notice on the bearings they have an open edge on the front and the back. What you want to do is we're gonna roll the bearing to get that grease packed inside of there like this. When you're pushing that grease in there you want to see it push out and inside the bearings, make sure you get a good coat on it. Once you get that done you're gonna drop it in the large side which is gonna be facing the trailer.

You can see how it kind of tapers smaller at one side than it is on the other, the small side's gonna go in toward the hub.In your kit you're gonna get a large seal, we're gonna put that over the bearing. It's a good idea to use a seal drivers to drive that on, to make sure that it's going on straight. I'll just tap it on and you want the seal just about flush with this edge of your hub, don't have to go all the way down in there. Now we're gonna take some lube and you want to grease up your axle.Next we'll take our hub and slide it onto our axle like that then we'll take our small bearing and we're gonna pack the grease in our small bearing the same way we did our large one. When you put your small bearing in again you want to make sure that the smaller side of the bearing is going in towards the hub.

Now we'll put on our washer then the nut. You want your hub to be able to spin, you don't want movement back and forth. Once I get it to where it's not moving I'm gonna take my inch and a half and gonna give it a little turn. Now before I put my cap on because the hub is so small I'm gonna put my wheel on and use the weight of the wheel to check to make sure we don't have any play in here and make any adjustments needed.Your kit's gonna come with new lugs, it's gonna have a tapered end and you want to make sure that that's going towards the wheel. Go ahead and tighten down our lug nuts. Once you have your wheel installed you just want to grab it and wiggle it and if you don't feel any play in the hub then you should be tight enough, just make sure that your wheel will spin freely. Now you can reinstall your retaining ring. Now we can install our cap, I'm just gonna use a mallet. This could be a little bit difficult to put in. Once you have your cap on you just want to make sure that the cap is sealed all the way up against the hub.That'll do it for our look at and installation on the trailer idler hub assembly for 3,500 pound axles part number AKIHUB-545-35-K.

The eTrailer team was once again amazing! Went into Will Call to try and replace some hub studs. They turned out to be a size no longer made. Lisa at etrailer took the time to help me find the perfect replacement idler hub for my boat trailer. Had it shipped to my house overnight. Found the installation video on the etrailer web site for this exact hub and within 30 minutes I had the old hub off and this new hub installed. This hub fit perfectly! Put this on an old Heritage Boat trailer replacing a Hayes hub (H-1377). Once this was changed out I was immediately able to put my boat on the trailer and haul it down the road. I will be replacing the other idler hub and rear breaking hubs next so I don't have to deal with that same hub stud challenge. 544780

These Glavanized Idler hubs are a great product. Making the hubs galvanized is a nice feature that adds corrosion protection. I purchased them to replace the hubs on a older boat trailer that had multiple broken studs and damaged bearings. These etrailer hubs come with a new set of bearings (races pre-installed), seals, lug nuts and dust caps. Note: I am using bearing buddies instead of the stock dust caps. I like that this assembly does not have pre-greased bearings because I prefer to choose the brand of marine wheel bearing grease used. I am very pleased with the quality of the hub assembly. 419884

Complete waste of time and money. I bought both springs, and this set of u-bolts plates from etrailer for a new 2" square axle. The u-bolts are too short. I'd suggest someone buy a new tape measure. I also had to grind down the spring center bolt as it stuck out of the small adapter plate and kept the spring from seating correctly (used the adapter palte which came with the springs instead of drilling a big hole in my brand new axle.) It is getting harder and harder to get the parts I need from these folks. Now waiting for parts to come from another vendor. 407517

Received items earlier than expected , everything fit perfectly so now I will order 4 more . Two to finish other side of trailer and the other two as spares , you can never be too safe ! The only thing that annoyed me was the fact that I had to run to auto zone for cotter pins , I know it doesn’t say it comes with cotter pins but I think they should ! I may update my review later when I get some miles on these nice hubs ! 469868

Easy hub identification for my trailer 2500 lbs, once you identify inner and outer bearing, just click on the bearing needed and the hubs will sort out for you from painted to galvanized, I had about 12 to choose from, so I chose the etrailer blue dot galvanized that were in the middle of the price range, comes with everything needed except washer and stainless steel cotter pin which I reused off of my hubs, these are not pre greased which enables me to choose a grease of my choice such as water displacing, easy installation, bearing buddies were also added to the project that went well with these hubs. 633540

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


  • Hub for E-Z Lube Spindle on Boat Trailer
  • In order to determine if hub assembly 8-258-50UC1-EZ will work for you, first know that this assembly is for EZ Lube spindles that require a grease seal with a 1-1/2" inner diameter such as # RG06-020. You are also going to want to remove the hub and take a look at the bearing numbers to make sure your inner and outer bearings are # L44649. Normally that would be enough, but since you sanded the spindle, I also recommend you use a digital caliper such as # PTW80157 and measure the spindle...

  • Replacement Hub for 2003 Four Winns Boat Trailer
  • Based on the information provided, I was able to get your bearing numbers from the manufacturer and used those to determine a suitable hub assembly.

  • Replacement Timbren Axle-Less System and Hydraulic Brake Assembly for 3,500 lb Axles on Boat Trailer
  • I would love to help you upgrade your suspension components! I am guessing that you have 3,500 lb axles on your trailer but if you could verify that it would help me to make sure that I recommend the correct parts for you. Also, are you looking to add brakes to both axles or just keep them on one pair? You would get more braking power and less wear with brakes on all of the axles but if you only want them on one then that will also play into the parts.

If you have standard spindles without the grease zerk, then you will want # AKIHUB-545-35-G-K. If you don't need the galvanized option or the EZ Lube option, then you can use # CE13511 which is pre-greased with a carrying case.

But to be sure we get you the right hubs I would need to know the bolt pattern of the wheels for sure. I have included a link to the right that explains how to measure for bolt pattern. If it does end up being a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern then you can use hub # 84545BX or # AKIHUB-545-35-G-K for a galvanized hub. If the wheels require a different bolt pattern, use the other...

  • Will Trailer Wheel Center Cap Cause Trailer Hub to Retain too Much Heat
  • Sounds like you are asking if using trailer center cap covers for the pilot hole will significantly increase the heat of a trailer hub. The answer is no, they would not. A hub that is in good shape and has good bearings will not put out enough heat for a wheel center cap to be what causes it to overheat.

  • Replacement Hub Needed for a Karavan SL-3100-DB10-74 Trailer
  • If your weight capacity is 3,100 lbs then you probably have a 3,500 lb axle on your trailer.
