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"

Parts were exactly what I needed, went on easy and seem like excellent quality!
Great customer service and fast shipping!
Bearings on boat trailer were getting old and had a little play in it, lots of fishing to do !


Hubs and bearings seem to be of good quality. Made in china, but everything is now. Perfect fit. Very satisfied. Fast delivery.


Hubs look good and hopefully won't rust like the last ones, although the lugs and nuts are still mild steel.



Everything works great!


These Glavanized Idler hubs are a great product. Making the hubs galvanized is a nice feature that adds corrosion protection. I purchased them to replace the hubs on a older boat trailer that had multiple broken studs and damaged bearings. These etrailer hubs come with a new set of bearings (races pre-installed), seals, lug nuts and dust caps. Note: I am using bearing buddies instead of the stock dust caps. I like that this assembly does not have pre-greased bearings because I prefer to choose the brand of marine wheel bearing grease used. I am very pleased with the quality of the hub assembly.


All items arrived as ordered, and I am pleased with the quality of the products.


Easy hub identification for my trailer 2500 lbs, once you identify inner and outer bearing, just click on the bearing needed and the hubs will sort out for you from painted to galvanized, I had about 12 to choose from, so I chose the etrailer blue dot galvanized that were in the middle of the price range, comes with everything needed except washer and stainless steel cotter pin which I reused off of my hubs, these are not pre greased which enables me to choose a grease of my choice such as water displacing, easy installation, bearing buddies were also added to the project that went well with these hubs.


Everything went together great, and survived the Freshman year College Bass Fishing, over 5k miles.
I didn't use the provided seals & caps, I used Bearing Buddy.


The eTrailer team was once again amazing! Went into Will Call to try and replace some hub studs. They turned out to be a size no longer made. Lisa at etrailer took the time to help me find the perfect replacement idler hub for my boat trailer. Had it shipped to my house overnight. Found the installation video on the etrailer web site for this exact hub and within 30 minutes I had the old hub off and this new hub installed. This hub fit perfectly! Put this on an old Heritage Boat trailer replacing a Hayes hub (H-1377).

Once this was changed out I was immediately able to put my boat on the trailer and haul it down the road. I will be replacing the other idler hub and rear breaking hubs next so I don't have to deal with that same hub stud challenge.


Received items earlier than expected , everything fit perfectly so now I will order 4 more . Two to finish other side of trailer and the other two as spares , you can never be too safe ! The only thing that annoyed me was the fact that I had to run to auto zone for cotter pins , I know it doesn’t say it comes with cotter pins but I think they should ! I may update my review later when I get some miles on these nice hubs !


The new hubs and bearings were easy to install and they have worked great. Thanks to etrailer I can safely tow my boat to the bay and enjoy time on the water again!


Ordered this hub to replace one on my boat trailer. The page you have is very good as it helps you to pick the right parts. All I had to do was match the inner bearing and the outer bearing and bolt pattern. Perfect fit. I highly recommend e trailer and I'm sure I will use you again.


Great products and fast service. Every time I order service great.

Jerry L.


Hubs are great no problems at all.


another successful project completed !!

blaster and Lubrimatic bearing marine lube (550 deg dropping point), highest on the market


Good product at an affordable price: My customer service rep, Jamie, was friendly and extreamly helpful


This company sold me the hubs, claiming to have them to me in three days. I needed the hubs badly and quickly. They did not show up, and research indicated they were not going to show up for another week. I traveled 150 miles (300 round trip), bought the same hubs from a store. I put these hubs in the trash.


Complete waste of time and money. I bought both springs, and this set of u-bolts plates from etrailer for a new 2" square axle. The u-bolts are too short. I'd suggest someone buy a new tape measure.
I also had to grind down the spring center bolt as it stuck out of the small adapter plate and kept the spring from seating correctly (used the adapter palte which came with the springs instead of drilling a big hole in my brand new axle.)

It is getting harder and harder to get the parts I need from these folks.

Now waiting for parts to come from another vendor.




Great service, part was delivered earlier then expected and fit great! Would make more purchases in the future


Quick shipping, excellent packaging, hubs bering kit fit perfect n my axles


Easy install on to my double axel EZ-Loader boat trailer. I replaced the factory oil bath hubs and brake drum units with these and a disc brake kit. I opted for Bearing Buddy's in lieu of the bearing end caps that came with this kit. My boat & trailer sees a lot of salt water/Puget Sound. It all works really good!


If you are replacing the hubs on your saltwater trailer these will fill the bill. Each comes pre-greased for quick installation with lug nuts, cotter pin and grease cap, everything needed to install. They are of highest quality and galvanized for many seasons of use.


Supply Chain Stinks! But Shawnee E with etrailer came through with options!


Rebuilt boat trailer and replace old hubs with these. Used boat this summer, lake is about 20 miles from home. Trailer pulls and tracks fine! Very satisfied!


Very pleased with my first order from etrailer. I needed tech help in choosing the correct hub assembly. Hold time was frustratingly long (20 min.) on weekdays, but on Saturday morning I got through in five minutes. "Steve" was very knowledgable and helpful and steered me quickly to the correct parts. They shipped same day and arrived quickly and in good shape. Easy installation too.


Thank you for your prompt service

  • Replacement Idler Hub for Hub Stamped With TMW 46210 1209
    It appears TMW is a overseas company which I could not find much information. The 46210 is a common hub number for a 3,500lb idler hub with 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern. This would use either the Idler Hub # AKIHUB-545-35-G-K for standard spindles or the Easy Grease Hub # AKIHUB-545-35-G-EZ-K if your spindle has a grease zerk on the end of the spindle. The 1209 may be a date code or batch type number the manufacturer used to identify and changes in materials or processing.

  • What Replacement Hubs do I Need for My 3500 Pound Boat Trailer Axle?
    Thanks so much for providing those details! Based on your bearing numbers, you definitely have a 3.5k axle with a 5 on 4-1/2 lug pattern. For replacement hubs, I recommend the Easy Grease Trailer Hub/Drum Assembly for 3.5K Axles - 10" Diameter - 5 on 4-1/2 - Galvanized # AKHD-545-35-G-EZ-K (if you have E-Z Lube or Easy Grease spindles) or the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly - 3,500-lb Axles - 10" Diameter - 5 on 4-1/2 - Galvanized # AKHD-545-35-G-EZ-K (if you have standard spindles).

  • Availability Of Trailer Hub With .75" Outer And 1.25" Inner Bearings
    I do have one hub that uses a .75" ( # LM11949) outer and a 1.25" ( # LM67048) inner bearing. This bearing combination is uncommon these days, but we have the hub # DX22XR. This is a 5 on 4-1/2" idler hub for a 2,500 lb axle. Bearings, seals, races, grease cap and lug nuts are all included. We also have a few sizes of wheels that will go with this; 15" wheel - # AM20422 14" wheel - # AM20365 13" wheel - # AM20253 12" wheel - # AM20132 We can also provide tires for any size trailer wheel...

  • Recommended Replacement Disc Brake Assembly For A 2008 Shorelandr Boat Trailer
    Hey Brandon, Based on the information you've provided I recommend the DeeMaxx Disc Brake Kit # DE66YR. This disc brake kit has a corrosion-resistant "Maxx" coating finish on the hub/rotors, calipers, and brackets for a salt spray rating over 1,000 hours. It uses the same bearing sizes and and has the same wheel bolt pattern at 5 on 4-1/2. The brake lines should connect to the inlet on the caliper but they do sit a little lower than the original calipers. I've attached a video below where...

  • How to Find Replacement Axle for Hurricane HUR 2178 Boat Trailer
    Finding a replacement axle will require measuring your current axle. Specifically, the hub face to hub face measurement. I would say based on the GVWR it is a 3,500 lb axle. It could possibly be a 3,000 lb axle depending on what they figured for tongue weight, but that would be obsolete so you're looking at 3,500 lbs either way. We only have two length options for 3,500 lb axles so I'll list them below. If you switch from a 3k axle you will also need new hubs. You can choose from the following:...

  • Replacement For 11033L Idler Hub and Spindle Ranger Boat Trailer
    The 11033L hub shown in your photo was manufactured by Tie Down Engineering, or TDE. What you have there is a hub for a standard 3500 lb axle which has a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern. For an idler hub, I'd recommend the galvanized # AKIHUB-545-35-G-K. The hub includes the bearings, races, grease seal, dust cover and lug nuts. These are grease hubs.

  • Replacement Idler Hub for Boat Trailer With 3500 lb Axle
    For a 3500 lb axle, each hub would be rated for 1750 lbs, but would still be referred to as a '3500 lb hub'. If your existing hub uses a L68149 inner and a L44649 outer hub with an Inner Diameter of 1.378 and 1.063 inches respectively, you do indeed have a typical 3500 lb axle and the etrailer branded # AKIHUB-545-35-K hub would be the correct replacement, assuming your existing wheels have a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern.

    The Trailer Idler Hub Assembly part # AKIHUB-545-35-G-K or part # AKIHUB-545-35-G-EZ-K for easy grease will be a direct replacement for the TDE 46210. That said, you may also need the Double Lip Seal part # 168255TB since that hub can use two different seals (different inner diameter) but measuring would be the only way to confirm. If you are just looking for the bearings and races with standard seal then we have this as the Bearing Kit part # BK2-100.
