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"

I ordered the Idler hub (pre-greased) for the 3500 lb axle I have just installed it and it fit perfect



Have had no problems each trip is about 200miles and I have made numerous trips


Finally got them in today (Postal Service delayed them in Memphis) and they are just as I ordered. Changed them out with the old hubs with no problem except the dust cover was just barely too big for my axle. No problem I just used by old dust covers.


was an interesting job. had to buy a bearing puller to get of the old race then this went on and has been fine now for a year now. I bought both sides but only did the wobbly wheel as I don't like to fix what isn't broken yet.


I’m very upset. I have ordered a lot of stuff from you, but this order really was bad. First off. It’s missing two Lugnuts. They gave me two that were too big as well. Also, dust covers do not fit. The solid ones do at least I think the ones with the rubber metal do not fit. I know they are hard to get in, and I am very experienced with putting them in and I could not get them to go in. Hopefully I haven’t tried them but the solid dust covers will work. If not, I will have to buy some bearing buddies. I don’t know if I will be using you again cheap Chinese stuff you’re selling

I am sorry that it came with missing hardware and that the grease caps are tough to tap into place. I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.


Ordering was easy. I had some questions so I called. Tammie was very helpful and took my order. Hubs arrived in 2 days. Installed easily and works perfectly. etrailer is a great company to do business with.


Hubs were as described. Slipped them right on, adjusted and no problems.


Parts came earlier than expected and was a super easy 15 minute installation.


I put the new hub assembly on for my Lil' Hobo retro camper trailer. The hub assembly doesn't come with a washer and nut for the spindle, so you need to save your old ones or buy these separate if you don't have them. I put it on with new tires and wheels, upgrading from a four bolt to five bolt pattern.


Etrailer tech (George J) was great helping me pick this out for my trailer


They look good, will be installing and finishing a total light job, complete switch to electric brakes, safety trigger, battery by the end of next week. Thank-you etrailer!


Everything has worked as should


Converted my trailer to 5x4.5 so I could use standard rims. Everything worked great. I ordered 2 drums and 2 hubs. Everything included.


Fast delivery
...the hub and bearing
set should include cotter pin had to replace them and for an additional couple of cent it far to Loews.
Thanks anyway


Just a quick note to say thank you to eTrailer for not only the quality of parts received but also to Melissa for the dedicated service and attention that was given to me when placing my order.

THANK YOU MELISSA for all of your help!
Looking forward to my next purchase!


Not much to see, but here are pics of the installed new hub and Bearing Buddy.


My trailer originally had 5/ 4.75 hubs but decided to change to 5/4.5 hubs since my other trailer has the 5/4.5 hubs. Very happy with my purchase.


The right parts at the right price !


Good price, right fit for my trailer per my research on your website. Short wait time on delivery. If product lasts, very pleased with overall experience with your company. Thank you.


Parts fit and worked as like they should. Fast shipping.


Got pre packed hubs for boat trailer they fit perfect just as described!! Fast shipping. Would recommend A plus


Product works great and was easy to install. I don't think it came with the castle nut pin, which might be problematic for some people who don't have hardware collections at their work space. It might help those who are unfamiliar with hub installation to get an install guide with the product. I could see someone over tightening the castle nut and ruining their new bearings.

Ian K.


Great! I checked them after about 250 miles of use and they were still tight and in great shape. They were exactly as described and perfect for my application.


Perfect fit. I can always count on Etrailer for all my trailer needs


The hub is nice fit perfect. The included dust caps however had to be beaten in. Hard.


i told the person on the phone that both bearings were the same size and what was shipped was two different bearings. so i could not trailer my boat and missed out on the tournament. unexceptable


Worked like a charm great product

  • Correct Replacement for TDE 46210 Trailer Hub
    There typically aren't any part numbers stamped onto the trailer spindle that can be used for identification. There are however numbers stamped onto the hub most times which can be used for identification. The TDE46210 tells me you have a 3,500 lb axle so you can use the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly part # AKIHUB-545-35-G-EZ-K for galvanized or part # AKIHUB-545-35-K for standard.

  • Correct Hubs for Boat Trailer with L68149 and L44649 Bearings
    The correct trailer idler hub for your boat trailer is the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 3,500-lb Axles part # AKIHUB-545-35-K or part # AKIHUB-545-35-EZ-K if you have zerk fittings on the spindle. These are both pre-greased so there is no mess to be had.

  • Identifying Capacity and Replacement Parts for UFP Axle
    According to Dexter, this is a 3,750 lb torsion axle with a 90.3" hub face measurement. More than likely your axle uses # L68149 and # L44649 bearings with a # 168255TB grease seal. You will need to verify this information since Dexter did not have it available. Assuming that is correct, we have the following parts available depending on what you need: -Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-545-35-K -Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # AKHD-550-35-K -Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-35-SA -Dexter...

  • Availability of Dexter 3,500 lb Trailer Axle Hub that is Pre Greased Jamseson, you recommended
    The star shaped idler hub is how Dexter designs their hubs whereas the etrailer part # AKIHUB-545-35-K uses more of a flange. They are interchangeable though and there would be no issue going from one to the other. We have this exact style you are looking for with part # 84545UC1-EZ and it comes with a new spindle nut, washer, and cotter pin so it sounds like more what you are looking for. It is also pre-greased.

  • Replacement Hub for 2002 Coleman Niagara Pop Up Camper
    It does look like the 2002 Coleman Niagara uses the standard 3,500 lb axle bearings like the ones in the # BK2-100. I recommend verifying this information first by either identifying the axle and the parts it uses using the axle tags or finding the part numbers on/measuring your existing bearings. If that is correct, you need a 3,500 lb hub which uses these bearings and matches your current bolt pattern. More than likely you have a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern right now. Assuming that is the...

  • Do Different Timbren Axle-Less Suspension Systems Have the Same Camber and Ride Height
    The caster and camber could be the same on the # TASR35HDS03 and # ASR2KHDS05. The system has a slight manufacture camber. However, it is up to you on how much camber you have based on the installation. This can be changed using the included shims. As far as the ride height is concerned, these do not have the same dimensions. This will result in a different height between the systems when installed. The # TASR35HDS03 will also stick out farther. Since there is no real advantage to using...

  • Trailer Idler Hub with 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern that Fits a 1 Inch Diameter Straight Spindle
    To find the right replacement hub for a trailer you will need the inner and outer bearing numbers stamped into the sides of the bearings or the measurements of the spindle to 3 decimal places. The measurements have to be as accurate as possible so I recommend using digital calipers # PTW80157. I included a picture that shows where to measure. If the spindle diameter is 1 inch the whole length where the bearings ride then hub # AKIHUB-545-35-K will not fit. It takes 2 different bearing...

  • 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. This being said, since this is for a boat trailer, I'd recommend...

  • Replacement Trailer Hub that is Pre-Greased for 3,500 lb Trailer Axle
    Thank you for all of the info you listed. Based on that I can tell that you have a 3,500 lb trailer axle with a 5 on 4-1/2 inch idler hub so for a replacement you'd want the # AKIHUB-545-35-K which is correct fit and also pre-greased like you are wanting as well.

    Since your axle is 3,500 lb that would mean the replacement hub part # AKIHUB-545-35-K is going to fit. Unless you have a non-standard brand axle. If it's a Lippert or Dexter this would be an exact fit. Pace is known for using standard axles like this so I can almost guarantee this is a fit.

This set of bearings is popular and all idler hubs and hub/drums that use these bearings appears on the page I linked for you.

    I have a solution for you, but we do not have any hubs that are compatible with the item # LM48548 inner bearing that you currently have. .003 is a tiny difference but that can still cause problems down the road so I do not recommend replacing your hub with the etrailer Trailer Idler Hub Assembly item # AKIHUB-545-35-K.

I would verify that number. If this is correct there's a still a number of options that could be your correct hubs depending on whether you have drums, what bolt pattern they are, and whether you have EZ Lube spindles or not.

  • Which Grease Cap for AKIHUB-545-35-K 3500 lb Idler Hub Assembly
    The # AKIHUB-545-35-K hub you mentioned uses a 1.980 OD grease cap like # RG04-040. The caps are designed to fit tightly, so they are a little tricky to install the first time. I like to use a small block of wood placed across the face of the cap, then use a hammer to tap it into place.

With installing the new spindle this will allow you to use the standard size 3,500lb axle Idler Hub # AKIHUB-545-35-K. This hub has the 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern to mount your current wheels and tires. The now hub comes packed with bearings, races and a grease seal installed.
