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.

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"

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (122 Customer Reviews)

Install this hub-and-drum assembly on your trailer. Compatible with electric or hydraulic brakes. Fits 5,200-lb and 6,000-lb axles. Inner bearing (25580) and race, outer bearing (15123) and race, grease seal, grease cap, and lug nuts included.


Units fit well, drums are made in China, but I expected that given they are $100 less than the dexter units (who knows maybe dexter is made in China also). They did take a beating in delivery, one bearing was popped out (still in the bag) and all 4 rear grease seals popped out as well, but no damage to the actual assembly... I gave the 4 stars due to the China part..


Sales rep all but guaranteed these were made in the USA by Dexter for etrailer, CHINA is cleverly hidden INSIDE the drum. They are not made in the USA, but CHINA doesn’t ALWAYS mean junk. Time will tell, but the last set of China drums were destroyed in one year. 2012 Ram factory controller set at 3.5 empty, 6.5 loaded around 9k. 20’ enclosed car trailer.

The reason that it gets confusing, is because some of the parts are manufactured in China, while they are assembled here in the USA.


So far so good! Very easy to install. I put them on my 2013 ice castle and have driven roughly 800 miles on them so far and everything is working great.


This is a great product. I purchased the entire hub assembly for only a few dollars more than the parts needed to repair my old hub . Great pricing! The product arrived as scheduled. It fit perfectly. I will buy from them again. I recommend them to anyone looking for high quality parts at a good price.


Works great, perfect fit and easy replacement. Thanks. Dan


The prepacked wheel bearings saved a lot of time and made the job easy.


My go to for Dexter brake parts!!


Fit like a glove.


Exactly what I needed and easy install.


I just received the two boxes of drums that I'm going to use to put brake on both axles. The UPS delivery driver said that one of the boxes was beat up and there may have been parts lost. It was packed with plastic cap over the outside bearing that prevented the bearing from coming out. GOOD job! Now if you can get away from "made in china" I'd be a lot happier. Additional cost of made in AMERICA for be worth it.


Packaging is horrible , one came in a completely different box all taped up , and another poking through the box that is scratched and dinged up

Jenny N.


Oh no! I will have our Customer Service team contact you.


Hub and drum are great. Would have given 5 stars, but poor packaging and rough shipping led to the hub penetrating the box and the dust cover was lost through the hole.

Etrailer Expert

Jenny N.


Oh no! I will have Customer Service reach out to you to have the dust cap sent out right away.


The description didn't say it came with ezlube grease caps. I bought them separately but turns out they were included. Now i get to return them.


these hub and bearing kits come a fair price..easy to install..and made my trailer rebuild safe and useful for years to come..would purchase again,,if needed for another trailer restoration...

Steve A.


the hub and bearing kits are still working fine, serviced and bearings still look new, thanks


Exactly as described. Easy to install!


I have received 4 hubs and they were delivered Undamaged. I’ve installed 3 thus far. They fit perfectly. As soon as I get the forth one installed I’ll take the trailer out and test them. So far so good.



Good. Went on a trip last year after installing the the hubs. 24000 miles and 5 months. They performed great.


This is a Spare Hub for my Car/Equipment trailer .When not if you have a bearing Failure just change the Hub, no need to try to beat gaulded bearing Races out on the side of the Road !! But if its a easy Bearing Change they are included with this Kit .


It replaced the old drum and hub, electric brake assemblies, it was an exact fit. The outer bearing race was loose in the old hub drum assembly, that was the reason of my repair endeavor. I am very happy with the service I received from Thanks George J. for your effort in getting the replacement parts to me. I am considering doing right side of my axle for the sake of uniformity, as am writing this review!


Trailer hub and drum assemblies purchased to replace original units on a 2002 tandem wheel boat trailer. The assemblies were quality units that fit perfectly, installation was easy.


Very well made. Good fit and installed easily. Comes with new grease caps and lug nuts. Used these in conjunction with new brake assemblies. No problems and performs well. Would recommend these to anyone.


I am very pleased with the Loaded backing plates, drums, bearings and tandem axle hanger kit. All appear to be better quality than what came on the trailer originally


Haven't put them on yet but everything matched up except the rear bearing and seal. I have an older trailer and the axels are different the old bearing still fit just fine in the hub. The delivery time was very impressive. When I get the trailer done I'll post some picks.


Nothing fancy, but exactly what I needed to replace the trailer hubs on the trailer. Have pulled the trailer close to a 1,000 miles and no problems. Thanks etrailer for the great products.


Trailer brakes and drums arrived is perfect condition. Put them on the same afternoon they arrived. The fit is great and installation was easy. Great product for the do-it-yourself-er.


Shipped free to my door which was nice since I didn’t have to lug them around. One seal came wrecked which Etrailer promptly replaced at no charge to me despite being a few days beyond normal reporting of defective items. Great customer service!

  • Information Needed To Find Replacement Wheel Stud For Axletek Trailer Hub
    To verify we have the correct wheel stud I will need for you to remove one of the studs and measure the length of a good stud, thread diameter and pitch, length of knurled section and diameter of the hole it fits into. This information will ensure we find the correct part.

  • Brake Hubs and Assemblies for Axle with Spindles that have Bearing Dimensions of 1.375 and 1.06 in
    Thanks for the spindle dimensions! With that I was able to determine that you have 84 spindle. That means for a hub drum you would want the part # # AKHD-545-35-G-EZ-K. Then for assemblies you would need the part # 23-27 for the right hand side and part # 23-26 for the left hand side.

  • How to Determine Correct Axle Capacity for Brake Replacement
    The information you've provided is a good start to narrowing down what size axle you have. The GVWR of 9055-lbs on tandem axles tells me they are likely either 5200-lb or 6000-lb axles. The bolt pattern of 6 x 5.5 is also consistent with that, as is knowing that the drums are 8-201 (which are for the 5200-lb/6000-lb axles). The best and most fail-safe way to determine the actual capacity of the axle is going to be by checking the bearings that are on the hubs, but both axles are going to...

  • Replacement Brakes and Hubs/Rotors for Dexter 6,000 Lb Axles
    As long as the brake mounting flange on your Dexter axle uses a 5 bolt pattern then the Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # AKEBRK-7-SA will work for you. The Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly part # AKHD-655-6-K uses a 25580 (1.75" inner diameter) inner bearing and a 15123 (1.25" inner diameter) outer bearing therefore will work well for you but you would need to swap out the grease seals for part # RG06-090.

  • Recommended Hubs and Spindles for 2500 lb Homemade Trailer
    The first thing to determine is if you want an idler hub or a hub/drum. The weight threshold at which brakes are mandated varies by state, so you might want to check that with your state police or highway patrol. If you decide on an idler hub (no brakes), I'd recommend the # 42655UC1 hub from Dexter Axle. The bearings, races, grease seal, lug bolts and grease cap are included. The hub will have more than enough capacity for your application. This hub would use the # TRU57FR spindle. For...

So instead, what you will need is the following: - Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 8-201-5UC3 This has the correct bearings and seal, and you said you were trying to get away from 14.4 wheels, and you can do so with this hub and drum, which is compatible with the same size wheels...

If you remove a hub and can give me the bearing number on the face of the inner and the outer bearing as well as the number on the seal, then I can get you the correct fit. The bearing numbers are etched into the face of each bearing as well as the metal ring on the seal. If you don't have these, then you will need to use a digital caliper like # PTW80157 to measure...

  • Hub And Drum Recommendation For Standard Axle
    The Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly that fits axles without E-Z Lube is part # AKHD-655-6-K. This uses the same seals as the hub and drum assembly you referenced. The only difference is the grease cap that will not have the removable seal for access to the zerk fitting on an E-Z Lube axle. This hub and drum uses bearing part # 15123 and part # 25580. I have included a link to a product review for this hub and drum.

  • Brakes, Hubs, Tires and Wheels for 6,000 lb Axle

I recommend using the Electric Trailer Brake Assembly, both left # AKEBRK-7L-SA and right # AKEBRK-7R-SA hand sides of your trailer. These brakes have the self-adjusting feature on them so you don't have to manually adjust your trailer brakes every 3,000 miles. Since you are building a trailer, you are going to need some wiring as well. I am not sure what kind of trailer you are building, but you...

  • Which EZ Lube Grease Caps for # 8-201-5 and # 426-56 Hub/Drum Assembly
    Both the 8-201-5 and the 426-56 Hub and Drum Assemblies you mentioned would use a grease cap with a 2.44 outside diameter. The EZ Lube Grease Cap, part # RG04-080 would be the correct cap for both hub/drums. The 8-201-5 hub/drum would use the # BK3-310 bearing kit, and the 426-56 hub/drum would use the # BK3-100 bearing kit.

  • After Replacing Trailer Brakes the Brakes are Still Weak
    When you installed the new brakes did you adjust them? Drum brakes require an initial adjustment and then periodic adjustment (for manual adjust brakes) to keep them at optimum braking performance. Basically you will know the brakes are adjusted properly when you hear a slight but constant drag of the brakes on the drum when the wheel is turned. To see how to manually adjust trailer brake assemblies check out the video I attached, fast-forward to the 4:35 mark of the video. I recommend...

  • Which 6 On 5-1/2 Bolt Pattern Hubs Will Fit A 2008 M1101 HMMWV Trailer?

It looks like it has a 1.25" inner diameter, which does match two hub and drum assemblies we have.

That said, this comes with a 2.25" grease seal and you need a 2.125" grease seal so in addition to the hub/drum you also need the Grease Seal part # GS-2125DL.
