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"

  • Replacing Hub And Drum Components On Mobile Home Axles
    Mobile home axles are designed for a one-time use and it is not recommended to use them for trailers. There is not a weight capacity listed for mobile home axles. A lot of folks do use them anyway but find that the hubs, and bearings and other components are really difficult to find. You would need to remove the hubs on the spindles and use a digital caliper like part # PTW80157 and measure the spindle where the inner and outer bearings ride to find the correct replacements.

  • Replacement Bearings 2788 and 1779
    Bearing # 2788 has an inner diameter of 1.50-inches and fits race # 2729. Bearing # 1779 has an inner diameter of 0.938-inches and fits race # 1729. We do offer all of these bearing and race parts and if you wish you can install new bearings in your current hubs. The idler hub you referenced, part # AKIHUB-655-6-K, uses different bearings that have different dimensions. The bearings in this hub are inner bearing # 25580 (1.75-inch inner diameter) and outer bearing # 15123 (1.25-inch...

  • Recommended Trailer Idler Hubs and 15 Inch Wheels and Tires for Utility Trailer
    The Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 6,000-lb Axles - 6 on 5-1/2 # AKIHUB-655-6-K is a confirmed fit for your spindle. I was able to confirm this hub assembly will fit as low as 14-1/2 inch rims, but since you are wanting more standard size, I strongly suggest 15 inch wheels and tires. I recommend the Provider ST205/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire with 15" White Spoke Wheel - 6 on 5-1/2 - Load Range D # A15R6WSD. This combination will give you a load rating of 2150 lbs at 65 psi and a speed...

  • What Spindle Fits the Trailer Hub # AKIHUB-655-6-K
    I think you may be going about replacing your hubs backwards. The only way to do it is to first determine what spindle you have on the trailer and then find the correct hub to fit it by either using the bearing numbers or the dimensions of the spindle. The Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-655-6-K would require a 42 spindle like the part # TRU37FR. This hub has 1.25 and 1.75 inches where the bearings ride. If you send me the info you find I can help you find the right part.

  • Timbren Axle Less System Recommendation that Can Fit 6 Lug Trailer Hubs
    Sounds like you have hubs like either the # 8-201-9UC3-EZ which is a hub/drum or the # AKIHUB-655-6-K which is an idler hub. Both hubs use the # 25580 inner and # 15123 outer bearing, which is compatible with the spindle used by the Timbren # ASR35HDS02 axle-less suspension that would give you an independent suspension setup.

If you are talking about the overall diameter of the plate that the bolts are installed on then part # AKIHUB-655-6-K measures about 7-1/4" and part # AKIHUB-865-7-2-K measures about 8-1/2". Part # AKIHUB-655-6-K has a 6 on 5-1/2" bolt pattern, is compatible with 16" to 18-1/2" wheels, and has a pilot diameter of 3-1/8"...

  • How to Select Correct Replacement Idler Hubs for Trailer
    When substituting new hubs you need to match several things: the axle capacity, the wheel bolt pattern and the bearing set used inside the hub. Bearing dimensions can be used instead of the bearing part numbers but the part numbers are the best way to ensure the new hub will fit properly on your spindles. Matching the inner and outer bearing numbers ensures compatibility. You can also measure your current hubs' outside-to-inside depth (the distance from the outer bore where a grease cap...

    The Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 6,000-lb Axles - 6 on 5-1/2 - Pre-Greased # AKIHUB-655-6-K will work well with wheels like the Karrier ST225/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire w/ 15" Modular White Wheel - 6 on 5-1/2 - Load Range D # AM32673 each of which are rated for 2,540 lbs. You won't have any issues with speed on these as anything with that bolt pattern will be rated for highway speeds and the holding weight will be above what you need for the shipping container.

  • 3,500 lb Timbren Setup Recommendation for Off-Road Wheels and Tires
    For a wheel and tire that big your best option would be the Timbren kit part # ASR35HDS02 which is set up for wider tires and also has a 4 inch lift built into it. This is the same 3,500 lb capacity though. That being said we can only safely recommend using trailer rated wheels and tires wit this kit. For just a hub without a drum you would want the part # AKIHUB-655-6-K.

To ensure that your current wheels are compatible with the hub that you get you will need to make sure that you also have the appropriate bolt pattern on your hub.

If you are looking for the same size assembly at a more cost efficient price point, then I recommend the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 6,000-lb Axles - 6 on 5-1/2 # AKIHUB-655-6-K .

If that is the case then you can use the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly part # AKIHUB-655-6-K and the 10-10 Grease or Oil Double-Lip Seals part # RG06-090 to switch to a more common 6 on 5-1/2" bolt pattern.

    Since the plan is for the trailer to be an off-road trailer I would recommend a Timbren system that has a built in lift and is set up for wider tires. For that the # ASR35HDS02 would be perfect as it fits that criteria. Also, since these don't have an axle that runs through them that helps significantly with ground clearance. For a brake hub that would fit the spindle you would want the part # 8-201-9UC3-EZ as it also has the correct bolt pattern. For just an idler hub you would want...

    You can run tandem Timbren axles like the part # ASR35HDS02 which is set up for wider tires and also has a 4 inch lift built into it. For an idler hub for the idler axle you'd want the part # AKIHUB-655-6-K. For a brake hub you'd want the part # AKHD-655-6-EZ-K. The wheel and tire part # AC225R6SMQ has a matching bolt pattern and has a speed rating of 81 mph so this would be a great option.

  • Can Hub AKIHUB-655-6-K be Used in Place of Hub 8-213-5UC1
    You can use hub # AKIHUB-655-6-K provided that the larger seal is a proper fit for your spindle. The smaller one included with hub # 8-213-5UC1 would provide a tighter fit but if your current seal inner diameter is 2-1/4 inches then hub # AKIHUB-655-6-K will be fine. If it is smaller then the larger seal would cause grease to leak out.
