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 Hubs and Drums - Hub - AKIHUB-545-35-PG-K Review

Kevin: Today we're gonna take a look at the pre-greased trailer idler hub assembly for 3500 pound axles. This has a 5 on 4 1/2 inch bolt pattern. This idler hub is designed for use on the trailer idler axles. It fits 3500 pound axles with the number 84 spindles. This one is sort of unique because it is a pre-greased idler hub, in other words it's very easy to install. There's no need to pack the bearings because what happens is the bearings will come fully packed with the grease and if you'll even notice the grease seal is installed on the hub on the back there. This trailer idler hub assembly will include everything shown here.

Again, inside the hub it will already have the bearing races pre-installed, both the inner and outer bearing will be installed and already packed with grease, the grease seal as I showed you would be installed in the back, and the grease cap is included, and the 5 lug 1/2 inch lug nuts to install your wheel and tire assembly to the hub. Again, the bolt pattern this is for is 5 on 4 1/2 inch bolt pattern. The inner bearing that is already pre-greased and installed would be part number L68149 and has an inner diameter of 1.378. The outer bearing again which would be pre-greased and packed ready to go and installed is part number L44649 and has a 1.063 inner diameter. The grease cap right here is a 1.988 phalange diameter that would go on the outside and then the 5 1/2 inch by 20 size lug nuts to hold your wheel and tire assembly to the hub. This idler hub is certified by USS80 standards and CSA which are the Canadian standards so basically when you go to install this on the spindle of your axle basically you will just remove these covers, front one and the back one, and then you'll just slide it onto the spindles, secure it with your nut and washer that you have on your axle and then just pop on your grease cap over that and then use your lug nuts to install the wheel and tire to your hub. Simple as that but that should do it for the review of the pre-greased trailer idler hub assembly for 3500 pound axles with the 5 on 4 1/2 inch bolt pattern..

Funny you should contact me about those hubs. I have not had occasion to use my trailer since i put those hubs on until just recently. During our move ( about 25 miles one way) i noticed that the diver side seemed to slip out a little at a time. I would tap it back in. On my last trip, it came off completely-buddy & cap-. I had to stop at local hardqare store and buy another. Other side is great, not sure what happened. 400239

Luckily this is still in the trailer box! Caps have kept debris out of the inside and its ready to run if a failure occurs.

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


  • Grease Recommendation For Use with Pre-Greased Trailer Hub
  • Whenever possible I recommend the hub part # CE13511 over the # AKIHUB-545-35-PG-K as it has marine quality grease in it that will do a better job preventing water from damaging the grease. Aside from that it's the same hub that fits the same spindle. For grease then you would want the part # L11402.

  • How to Choose the Correct Pre-Greased Replacement Hub for Snowbear Trailer
  • There are pre-greased hubs available in a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. In order to find the correct replacement hub you can take apart your good 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 your hub has inner and outer bearings # L44643 you'd need CE Smith Trailer Hub Assembly w/ Carrying Case for 2,500-lb Axles - 5 on 4-1/2 - Pre-Greased # CE13210. Should your hub have inner and outer...

  • 3,500 lb Capacity Idler Hub Recommendation that Comes with Marine-Grade Grease
  • I have a solution for you, but the part # AKIHUB-545-35-PG-K does not come with marine grade grease. Instead you would want the part # CE13511 as it is essentially the same spec hub in terms of bolt pattern and what spindle it fits except it does come with marine-grade grease.

  • Will Trailer Hub AKIHUB-545-35-PG-K Fit Spindle that Measures 1-3/8 x 1-1/16
  • Yes, if your trailer's spindle measures 1-1/16 inch and 1-3/8 inch where the bearings ride the hub part # AKIHUB-545-35-PG-K that you referenced will fit and work well.

  • How to Pick Out Replacement Hub For 1993 Pace American Trailer
  • In order to pick out the correct hub assembly for a trailer you are going to need know a few key pieces of information. The first thing you will need to know is the bolt pattern of your hubs. This is so you get a hub that is compatible with your wheels. I attached an FAQ article on determining bolt pattern for you to check out but it sounds like we already know yours is 5 on 4-1/2 inch. Next thing you will need to know is what spindle you have on your trailer. In order to do that you...

  • Will etrailer Idler Hub Assembly for 3.5K Axles Fit a Spindle with a 3/4 Inch Diameter Spindle End
  • The "E" measurement is the diameter of the threaded end of the spindle. Assuming that you have the proper castle nut for the spindle and it takes the same bearings as hub # AKIHUB-545-35-PG-K then you can use the hub. This hub uses inner bearing L68149 and outer bearing L44649. If you still have the old bearings you can look at the numbers stamped into the sides of them.

  • Will etrailer.com Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-545-35-PG-K Fit Dexter 3,500 Pound Axle
  • It's very likely that the etrailer.com Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-545-35-PG-K that you referenced will fit your Dexter 3,500 pound axle, but I do recommend verifying this by pulling an existing hub from your trailer to check for its bearing numbers. The numbers should be stamped right inside the bearings themselves. This hub assembly uses the # L68149 inner bearing and # L44649 outer bearing, which is extremely common for a 3,500 pound axle. You will also want to make sure that...

  • Will Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 3,500-lb Axles AKIHUB-545-35-PG-K Fit Lippert Axles
  • If the trailer does indeed have 3500 pound axles then hub # AKIHUB-545-35-PG-K will likely fit. To be sure you can pull a hub and check the bearing numbers stamped into the sides of the bearings on the trailer currently. If the inner bearing is L68149, the outer is L44649, and the seal at the back has a 1.719 inner diameter then the hub will fit for sure. On Lippert axles its label will always be on the back of the axle on the center of the beam. You can check there and also check for...

  • Grease for Trailer Idler Hub Assembly
  • The Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 3,500-lb Axles - 5 on 4-1/2 # AKIHUB-545-35-PG-K is pre-greased but for when you are looking to grease the bearings you can use the LubriMatic Wheel Bearing Grease for Disc and Drum Brake Applications # L11465. This is a polyurea-based grease that comes in a 14 oz. cartridge for which you can use the LubriMatic Professional Pistol Grease Gun # L30416.

  • Can Hub for 3,500 lb Axles be Used on Axles With Different Weight Rating
  • That is a good question but the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 3,500-lb Axles # AKIHUB-545-35-PG-K can absolutely be used on your axle rated for less than 3,000 lbs. What matters is that you have the same # L68149 inner bearing, # L44649 outer bearing and # 58846 grease seal because this means the hub will fit your spindle. These are most often found on 3,500 lb axles but can be used on an axle with less capacity with no issues.

  • Availability of 2,200 Pound Axle with 93 Inch Hub Face Length
  • I may have an option for you, however we do not currently have a standard 2,200 pound axle available that features a 93 inch hub-face-to-hub-face length. I recommend taking a look at a Timbren Axle-Less Suspension System, such as the 2,200 Pound # ASR1THDS03. This system will provide a smooth, quiet, safe ride and can eliminate the need for a thru axle. They will fit any frame width and this particular kit features a 4 inch lift to provide greater ground clearance on your trailer. I...
