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"

Ordered four hubs with bearings for my utility trailer on Monday and received them on Wednesday afternoon. The price was very fair plus throw in free and fast shipping, we're off to a great start! The hubs and bearings fit perfectly thanks to etrailer's on line guide for determining proper fit. The hubs and bearings look to be of very good quality. If I had a nit to pick it would be that one of the four dust caps does not look the same as the other three, not really and issue as this is a work trailer. My entire experience with etrailer, at this point, is very positive. I will recommend them to friends and colleages.


Comments
Outstanding product. Its been a year since I installed the hubs and bearings. Ive had no problems what so ever and I use this trailer a lot. I expect to get many years of service from these bearings and hubs.

  • Replacement Hub for 2500 lb Trailer Axle with 5 on 5.5 inch Bolt Pattern
    Are you sure it's a 2,500 axle and not a 3,500? The 2500 isn't a standard one so we'd need to get bearing numbers/spindle dimensions to identify it.

  • Replacement 5-on-5-1/2 Idler Hubs & ST205/65-10 Tires for Sun Tracker Boat Trailer
    Selecting replacement idler hubs for your boat trailer requires matching up a few things to ensure compatibility. You need to match up the bearings, wheel bolt pattern and the weight capacity. Your axle's rating should be noted on a sticker or plate right on the axle beam. You also want to ensure the new hub will work with your wheel size. The part you referenced has your 5-on-5-1/2 lug pattern but will not work with wheels smaller than 14-inches. The four 5-on-5-1/2 idler hubs we offer...

These items include both idler hubs like # AKIHUB-555-35-K for trailers without brakes and also hub/drums like # AKHD-555-35-K for trailers with drum brakes.

  • Idler Hub So That I Can Use 5x5.5 Bolt Pattern Jeep Wheels on My Off-Road Trailer
    The lug studs on the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-555-35-K are 1/2" studs, which should match the studs used on your Jeep wheels. From what it sounds like, you're trying to replace the hubs on a trailer to use the wheels from a Jeep? While the studs may match up, the wheel offset is going to potentially cause a problem. You'll need to make sure you have enough space between the hub face and the frame to use the negative offset that vehicle wheels come with. You might be best served...

  • Is Lateral Movement Of The Hub Normal
    The 1/8" of lateral movement on the hub does not seem right. It sounds like it is possible the bearings in the hub may not be the correct size for your spindle. The best solution is to double check the bearings and measure the spindle with calipers like # PTW80157 to ensure you have the correct diameter bearings in the hub for your trailer. I have attached a helpful diagram. You also want to make sure the castle nut is snug. I have attached a video that shows the proper way to tighten...

  • How to Identify Compatible Hubs to Allow New Wheel Bolt Pattern
    In order for any new hub to work properly on an existing axle/spindle it must use the same inner and outer bearing parts. This is what ensures a proper fit on the spindles since the bearings' inner diameters will match the spindle diameter. Matching the bearings also helps ensure the new hubs' weight capacity matches that of the axle. Please refer to the linked diagram that shows the typical placement of bearing part numbers. If the bearing part numbers cannot be found you can measure...
