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"

Trailer hubs are working great despite being immersed in salt water regularly.


Great quality, great prices. I converted an old gooseneck trailer from the open center mobile home-style hubs to modern 6k hubs on a budget. These hubs fit in place of the old hubs on the rear axle, which I chose not to install brakes on.


This is the second time that I have ordered from etrailer. The first idler hub is still working fine on my boat trailer. I use the trailer to haul my boat to the Salish Sea off Port Angeles. The trailer is immersed in salt water every time I launch and retrieve the boat.


Complete accurate and overall fast and speedy shipping, couldn’t find this product anywhere even local trailer dealers, but had these, I would buy from them again !!!


Everything I needed with convenient shipping and reasonable pricing!


I am very happy with Etrailer, Great service and delivery. Lots of information to help me get the hubs I needed to change over from mobile home wheels to standard 6 lug trailer wheels. Shipping was fast and I even received a phone call before they shipped, because the address they were sent to did not match the billing address.
Thanks etrailer, Gary B


restoring an old trailer, these went on without a hitch.


We use etrailer for nearly every component of the custom trailers we fabricate. Great parts, great service and great prices.


Good Product easy to install. Use the assembly every day. No problems with it for over a year.


The hubs replaced my old rusted ones perfectly. I selected two day shipping when I ordered on Saturday but I didn't receive the order until Wednesday. The box was damaged and one of the caps were damaged by the hub because of not enough packing material in the box.


Great service! Great products! Thanks!


I'm missing a spindle

  • What is Minimum Pilot Diameter Wheel the Hub # AKIHUB-655-6-K Requires
    The pilot diameter of the wheel that would fit on the # AKIHUB-655-6-K would need to be more than 3-1/8 inches as that is the outer diameter of the center section of the portion of the hub.

  • 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...

  • Thread Pitch of Studs on Trailer Hub # AKIHUB-655-6-K
    The trailer hub part # AKIHUB-655-6-K that you referenced uses standard 1/2 inch trailer wheel studs like the part # 165981. This is a coarse thread (UNC) with a thread pitch of 1/2 inch x 13 threads.

  • Can The Hubs On Mobile Home Axles Be Changed To Use Conventional Trailer Wheels and Tires?
    Your mobile home axle uses a specific spindle which is not compatible with a more traditional hub like the Assembly # AKIHUB-655-6-K you found. You will want to find an entire replacement axle like the Dexter # 7461121-EB. If you can provide me with the dimensions on your axle I can help you locate a replacement.

  • 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.

  • Recommended Wheels and Tires for 6 on 5-1/2 Inch Idler Hubs
    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.

    The CE Smith Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # CE13611 will not fit your trailer with the hub bearings 15123 and 25580. Your hub bearings are most commonly found in 6,000lb axles and will require one of the following hubs. etrailer Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-655-6-EZ-K for an EZ Lube axle etrailer Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-655-6-K for a standard spindle Both of these hub assembly's will include new inner and outer bearings and races, lug nuts, grease caps, and a 2.25"...

  • How Many Hubs Come With Idle Hub Assembly # 42655UC1?
    The Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 6,000-lb Axles - 6 on 5-1/2 # 42655UC1 is one hub, not the pair. 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 . This comes with the same bearings, races, seal and bolt pattern. I've also linked the page to all your hub options for this size. They all come as one hub per part number.

  • 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 Vesper Spoke Wheel - 6 on 5-1/2 - Load Range D # TA23MR. This combination will give you a load rating of 2150 lbs at 65 psi and a...

  • 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.

It is not recommended to put a higher capacity spindle on a lighter rated axle.

  • Availability of Independent Suspension Trailer Axle Kit for Off-Road Trailer with 6 Lug Hub
    Sounds like you may be looking for an axle kit like the Timbren Axle-Less part # ASR35HDS02. This is a 3,500 lb axle setup that has a 4 inch lift built into it and is spaced out for off-road tires.

    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 # TA57VR has a matching bolt pattern and has a speed rating of 81 mph so this would be a great option.

  • Can 5-Spoke Utility Hub Be Replaced with Hub with Standard Bolt Pattern
    We have some hubs that can replace the 5-Spoke utility-style you're currently using, but they use a 6 lug pattern which actually works out because you'll need to replace your wheels for your tires anyways. To increase your tire size I recommend a 235/80-16 tire (which reduces your clearance by 2" altogether) so for a complete set of parts you'll need the following: - Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-655-6-K - Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # AKHD-655-6-K - 10-10 Grease or Oil Double-Lip...

    To ensure you get the correct replacement hubs for your trailer, you will need to find either the bearing numbers on your existing hub assembly or you can measure the spindle if these cannot be found. The bearing numbers should be stamped onto the bearings themselves. I have attached an image that shows what numbers or dimensions are needed.

  • Recommended Spindle, Idler Hub, Wheels and Tires For Homemade Cart Trailer Off Road Use Only
    We have the #42 Spindle # TRU57FR that you can weld to your trailer. It is a 2-1/4" round stub as we do not have any square stub spindles that are rated for over 2,500lbs per spindle. With these spindles you can use the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-655-6-K since you do not need a braking hub. The hub is 6 on 5-1/2" as the 5 lug wheels are not strong enough for the 10,000lb capacity that you are needing. The Taskmaster ST225/75D15 Bias Trailer Tire with 15" White Mod Wheel # TA42FR...

  • Replacement Hub and Spindle For Trailer Using Tapered Spindle With Timken 24780 and 10183 Bearings
    I do have a recommendation for you as we do not carry a hub which will work with your current spindle. Instead you can replace your spindles with the more commonly found #42 Spindle # TRU57FR. This will allow you to easily slide on a hub for a 6 on 5-1/2" Bolt Pattern # AKIHUB-655-6-K or one with the 8 on 6-1/2" bolt pattern # AKIHUB-865-7-2-K. Both these hubs include pre packed bearings, races and grease seals for easy installation.
