Thoroughly Tested for Safety

This hub-and-drum assembly meets the requirements for certification by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA). The CSA creates standards, which when complied with ensure a safe and quality product. This assembly underwent extensive testing to measure stopping distances when braking. This assembly has also been tested by QAI for braking performance in a complete automotive setup and under real-world conditions to provide the most realistic scenario for the everyday driver.

E-Z Lube and Easy Grease-Compatible Assembly for Simple Lubrication

The grease cap on this hub-and-drum assembly is specially designed to work with your Dexter E-Z Lube or etrailer Easy Grease axle to make lubricating bearings quick and easy. Just remove the plug on the grease cap, attach a grease gun to the zerk fitting on the end of the spindle, and inject the grease. It will flow easily to both inner and outer bearings. Not only does this make lubricating the bearings easy, but it also helps to prevent corrosion of the hub. This is because you can lubricate the bearings without the mess of taking apart the entire assembly.

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"

Arrived fast and install went flawless.
one year later I rechecked the torque on lug nuts and the free play on center nut. All good… advice is get a spare to keep in trailer for an emergency repair, like what happened to me when all the wheel studs broke off and I lost the entire wheel!


Our Flat bed trailer can do some pretty heavy work however we do not use this trailer all the time.
When the brakes failed we ordered from etrailer and the parts came in and we installed them without much ado.
Thank you for having all the parts we needed. After a year of seldom but heavy usage the self adjusting brakes are still working splendidly.


I purchased 6 of these hubs for replacement of what I call "mobile home" hubs so that I could convert to standard rims and tires. They worked perfectly. I have several thousand miles on them now with absolutely no issues. Excellent product!


The order showed up in a quick timing. Everything was in great shape and installation was a breeze.


these arrived ups in poorly wrapped boxes with one hub openly displayed but after close inspection it appears no damage and they fit onto the hub without issue. like they're pre-packed with grease, bearings so they are ready to install. they slid on easily and matched up with new brakes ordered earlier. all around great package for brakes overhaul. highly recommend


Item is damaged, 1 lug nut missing, 1 stud cross thread, dust cap damaged.

Customer Service will reach out to you.


Hub and drum assembly fell apart in the center within one year! Bearings look fine!


Exact replacement. One year later and still working great. About 2000 miles.


Worked great! Very easy.


Really heavy duty. The pre-grease takes all the hassle out of the replacement job.


This was way easier than expected, the hardest part was the mess inside, but installing the kit per the online video instructions was a snap and I encourage anyone to do theirs. Here's a couple after pictures.

Working great!


Great price and worked with no issue on 3,000 mile trip. It was great to install them already greased and ready to go.


Perfect fit, and easy to install, especially with the video from the site!


The hubs bearings and seals are outstanding products and pretty simple to install. I had a small issue with the dust caps as they were to tight to just tap into the hub. I like the fact that the wheel studs in these hubs are a little longer than factory parts!
Great Product.


Shipped very quickly and customer support was the best! Thanks Jill!


I was in desperate need for new hub/drum assemblies for my flatbed trailer. Once again etrailer came through for me. I particularly like the fact these arrive assembled with seals and pre-packed bearings.

J T.


These hub and drum assemblies worked great right out of the box. They were easy to install. I have since sold the trailer but the brakes made a big difference in use of the trailer and in the resale value.


Perfect fit.


Parts were an exact match. I replaced the brake assemblies, drums and bearings on my toy hauler. Was not sure these would work with Lippert 5200 lb. axles but, etrailer assured me I was buying the parts I needed.


Just got back from trip to Bowling Green. Pulled camper with 3/4t Ram. Adjusted electric brake and all worked perfect. Now, I did have 3 tire separations. They were 3318 date code load E on a 6500# camper. 3 of four separated, today replaced. Now FYI, 3 YEARS REPLACE TIRES!!! I try to replace between 3 to 5 years but haven't used the camper but 4 times and about 2k miles.


Perfect fit, easy installation


I like ordering from here because of good service and quick delivery. I’ve only got about two thousand miles on my trailer since I changed bearings and hubs but everything seems to working out very well so far,very satisfied.


so nice not having to pack the berings


Christina helped me make sure that I ordered the correct hub. Ordered on Monday arrived on Thursday. Hubs came assembled and greased as advertised. Not knowing what grease was in the hub, I was concerned that there might not be enough grease to finish the job, like coating the axle or that finishing touch on the outer bearing. No worries, there was plenty of grease, more than I would have normally used. I'm not a grease expert but it seemed to be good stuff, very sticky and not overly stiff. I noticed that the couple of places that I could see a bearing, that the bearing had been pressure packed with streams of grease between the rollers. The hubs came in heavy, individual, corrigated boxes, and in a heavy plastic bag, perhaps explaning why they were clean and not banged up when I got them. Each end of the hub had a plastic plug in it to keep it clean. You'll need your axle washer, nut and retainer. Good on ya' Etrailer.


easy peasy


This was a perfect fit replacement assembly, pre-greased and everything ready to go. It made the repair an easy process.

  • Replacement EZ-Lube Trailer Hub Assemblies For A 2023 ATC Pla 700
    Hey Steve, To find the correct replacement hub assembly we'll need to determine what bearings fit the spindle of your trailer's axles. If you remove the hub you'll pull out the outer bearing and will see the grease seal on the back. To get to the inner bearing you'll have to pull out the grease seal, which will damage it and you won't be able to move the trailer until you get a new seal. Both the bearings and grease seal should have a part number stamped into them but it could potentially...

  • Timbren Axle-Less Suspension Options With 2 Inch Lift Spindle
    I checked with the manufacturer, and there isn't an option for a 2 inch lift for the 2,200 lb Timbren systems. The only options that have a 2 inch lift are the 3,500 lb-rated and 5,200 lb-rated Timbren systems, and they each come with a brake flange welded on, though if you don't want to use brakes you don't have to use that flange. So if you want to go to a higher-rated system with the 2 inch lift you can use either of the following: - 3,500 lbs: Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension...

  • Troubleshooting Replacement Hub/Drum Fit on 1962 Airstream
    In order for replacement hubs to fit on your existing spindles the new hubs need to use the same inner and outer bearing parts. The hub/drum assembly you selected # AKHD-655-6-EZ-K uses inner bearing # 25580 and outer bearing # 15123 and it is intended for a 5200-lb or 6000-lb axle with number 42 spindles. The bearing inner diameters are 1.75-inches for bearing # 25580 and 1.25-inches for bearing # 15123. The hub's included grease seal has an inner diameter of 2.25-inches. If these bearings...

  • What is Difference Between etrailer Trailer Hubs # AKHD-655-6-K and # AKHD-655-6-EZ-K
    The only difference between the # AKHD-655-6-K and the # AKHD-655-6-EZ-K is the cap that the hub uses. One is a solid cap and the other has a rubber plug that can come off for access to EZ lube fittings. Since you have caps already you could use either hub part number.

  • Does AKHD-655-6-EZ-K Pre-Lubed 3500 lb Hub Drum Need Additional Grease Before Installation
    The # AKHD-655-6-EZ-K hub would arrive with the grease seal, the races and the inner and outer bearings installed. The bearings are already packed with grease, so the hub is ready to install. I'd recommend using some additional all-purpose marine wheel bearing grease like # L11465, and smearing a good coating on the spindles as some extra added insurance. I've linked to a product description video featuring this hub/drum. All this being said, since this is for a boat trailer I'd instead...

  • Are There Electric Trailer Brakes To Replace Warner Brakes On a 1960's Trailer?
    Unfortunately Bill, we are not going to have any parts that will let you keep your current axles. You can either look at getting replacement axles which I can help you find or you can look at installing the more common #42 Spindle # TRU37FR or # TRU39FR on your axle. These would need to be welded in by a shop with an axle jig to ensure they go on perfectly straight.

  • Replacement Hub/Drums and Brakes Needed for 42' Forest River Explore Sierra Destination
    From what I can find it looks like you should have tandem 5,200 lb axles on your 42' Forest River Explore Sierra Destination. This means that the correct replacement hub and drum assembly is part # AKHD-655-6-EZ-K and the replacement brake kit should be part # AKEBRK-7-SA. The hub and drums use inner bearing # 25580, outer bearing # 15123, and grease seal GS2250DL which has a 2.25" inner diameter. The brakes are 12" self-adjusting electric brakes.

  • Axletek-12-GG Replacement Brake Assembly and Hub Recommendation

This kit is a pair of left and right assemblies that are an exact match to what you have that are also self adjusting as well. Then if you have a 6 lug hub/drum currently the correct replacement would be the part # AKHD-655-6-EZ-K or if you have an 8 lug hub you'd need # AKHD-865-7-G-EZ-K.

  • Brake Kit and Hub/Drum Assembly Needed for 1994 Four Winns Single Axle Boat Trailer
    Since the spec sheet said 4,740 lbs per axle and you have 6 on 5-1/2" lug patterns I think it's safe to assume that brakes and hub/drums rated for a 5,200 lb axle would fit, but I would still try to double check on your end just to be sure. There should be an axle tag in the middle of your axle that says the exact weight rating.

Based on having Dexter axles and a 10,000 lb GVWR trailer it is likely you have 5,200 lb axles but also possible you have 6,000 lb axles.
