Hub Patterns & Bearings
When using 16” wheels on axles, you must be aware that the capacity of the axle is reduced by approximately 20%.
- Hubs to fit axles supplied come in many wheel stud patterns. The most common are:
Holden HT 5 Stud
Holden HQ (Commodore) 5 Stud
Ford 5 Stud
Land Cruiser 5 Stud AND 6 Stud
4 Stud Toyota or Datsun and Mini etc
- The bearing sets, either LM (Holden) or SL (Ford) must be in the hub set to fit the axle chosen. Axles determine the bearing sizes, not the stud pattern. Both bearing sets fit all the standard hubs as the outside diameter is the same for both.
LM (Holden) = LM 11949/10 Outer and LM 67048/10 Inner
SL (Ford) = LM 12749/10 Outer and L 68149/10 Inner
- The seals likewise are also LM or SL.
LM 28550 and SL 28600 for 39 Round or 40 Square Axles
Seal Numbers Marine:
LM PR6641 and SL 82120 for 45 Round or 45 Square Axles
