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"

I patiently waited through about 3 1/2 months of supply delays, and the hubs have arrived. Pre-lubed, with shipping covers, was a nice touch. Most difficult was removing and re-installing the axle cotter pin. Otherwise, maybe 7 minutes install time per hub. Not punching out the bearing as it slides onto the stub is only other point of concern. Dust caps are a bit hard to get set. If I can, I'll include photos of previous axles, new install, and finished.

I bought a 5'x10' utility trailer that had some jeep wheels mounted with some wheel spacers with the 5x4.5 bolt pattern. I had some 6 lug wheels that matched my truck and wanted to switch the trailer over to 6x5.5 pattern and eliminate the wheel spacers. I followed the how to in the faq section on how to measure my axle spindle for correct hub/hub bearing replacement. These hubs were exactly what I needed and mounted just fine. It was awesome that the races, bearings, seals, and grease were pre-installed. Took about 20 minutes per side from old wheels and tires on the ground to new wheels and tires on the ground ready to roll. Very nice all in one product. The quality of the parts looks and feels great. Well worth the money. I would recommend these and etrailer.com to anyone needing parts to maintain your trailer. Thanks!

I’ve been looking for this hub for a few months now, and when I saw it online, I spent like two hours checking and rechecking it was the one I needed. The good thing is that the description on etrailer.com is detailed. Frankly now that I think about it, I spent more time making sure it was the correct hub, than what I did putting them on. They were pre greased and fit perfectly. The shipping was quick too, I received them three days after I placed my order. Thank you, etrailer.com for having what I needed.

These hubs installed perfectly on my utility trailer, and now it runs 17" 6-lug wheels that match my 4x4 (after fabricating a centering hub for the hub-centric wheels). With the addition of Bearing Buddies (also from etrailer) it's a great setup. Very happy with the product quality and delivery, etrailer is tops!

Fit as expected, was a bit challenging as the trailer that came with the had the hubs rusted to the wheel, nothings would separate them, heat, cold nothing worked. Took the whole thing of and ordered the hub by micrometer measurements of the spindle. Fortunately etrailer provides these measurements. I knew this rig was a labor of love from the start

I wanted to have the same bolt pattern on my trailer as my truck. When I needed a new rim for my trailer I bought 2 and made the switch. This will help save space and weight not needing an another spare tire. Web site had all the info you need, making it very easy to know what you are getting. shipment was on time. just add grease at install and you are ready to go.

  • Replacement Trailer Bearings for Shoreland’r Trailer with #84 Spindle
    Based off the measurements you provided, you've got a #84 spindle, so the correct bearings are the # L44649 and # L68149, and # RG06-050 grease seals. We typically try to put bearing numbers of popular manufacturers on the bearing pages but those are Shoreland'r part numbers so they're not on the product pages currently. You can get these in a complete kit with the Bearing Kit for #84 Spindle, L44649/L68149 Bearings, 10-19 Double Lip Seal # BK2-100

  • Replacement Hub for 1986 Shorelander Boat Trailer
    Based on the measurements you provided you have # LM67048 inner bearings and # LM11949 outer bearings. There is only one hub that would fit with a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern, which is the # AH15450ECOMP Trailer Hub Assembly. This is designed for agricultural use and speeds less than 20 mph so I would not recommend using it as a replacement for the hub on your boat trailer.

  • How to Find Correct Replacement Hubs for Shoreland'r Boat Trailer
    In order to find the correct replacement hubs for your Shoreland'r boat trailer, you need to first know what bearings your current hub has. You will need to take apart your current 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 you are unable to find them, you need to use a digital caliper such as # 301-17068 and measure your spindle to the thousandths of an inch where the bearings and grease...

If by chance the bearing numbers are missing or worn off, then the attached picture will show you what measurements are needed to find the correct bearings.

  • How to Convert 3,500 lb Dexter Axle from Wheel Bolts to Wheel Studs
    I have a solution for you, but you would not be able to thread in wheel studs to your hub that uses lug bolts. Instead you would need to replace the hub with one that has studs mounted in them. For that we have the part # AKIHUB-655-35-K for an idler hub or part # AKHD-655-35-EZ-K for a hub drum. Both of these will fit your Dexter 3,500 lb axle and have the correct 6 lug bolt pattern.

  • Will AxleTek Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-655-35-K Fit 2007 5x8 Enclosed Trailer
    Yes, the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-655-35-K should fit the 2-3/8" diameter axle that you currently have installed on your 2007 5x8 enclosed trailer. If you can verify that the axle on your trailer is a 3,500 lb axle then that would confirm the fit indefinitely as this hub uses the same bearings and seal as the common #84 spindle on a 3,500 lb axle. Just note that this hub assembly does have the 6 on 5-1/2" bolt pattern so your current wheels will not be compatible with it....

    It sounds like you have inner and outer bearings # L68149 and # L44649 respectively. That's a very popular combination on a # 84 spindle but the seals are normally 1.719 inches inner diameter. I would verify that number. If this is correct there's a still a number of options that could be your correct hubs depending on whether you have drums, what bolt pattern they are, and whether you have EZ Lube spindles or not. I'll list all the optoins for you. 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern: Standard...

  • 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.

  • Wide Trailer Tire Recommendation for Building Trailer that will be Used on Sand
    The widest tire size we have is the 235/80-16 which has a section width of 9-1/4 inches. For a wheel and tire in that size with a trailer wheel that has a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern you'd want the part # A16RTK6SMV. So then to reverse engineer from there you'd want a 6 lug hub like the part # AKIHUB-655-35-K and then you'd want the 84 spindle like the TruRyde part # TRU24FR.
