Wheel Hubs

Wheel Hubs

A Wheel Hub bearing unit is an important component of a car´s wheel assembly as it enables the wheels to turn freely, ensuring the safety and handling capabilities of a vehicle. Comprised of precision-manufactured bearings, seals and sensors in one pre-assembled unit, a wheel hub bearing unit plays a critical role in a car´s performance including: smoothness of the ride, fuel efficiency and protecting the integrity of anti-lock breaking systems (ABS).

 

Modern cars are equipped with a single bearing and hub assembly that is attached to each wheel and tire on a vehicle. The assembly secures the wheels to the automobile's body to ensure that they stay in place no matter how fast you go. The most essential use of this assembly is to contain the wheel bearings, which allow the wheels to turn quietly and steadily.  The wheel hub assembly includes wheel studs that attach the wheels of the vehicle to the car and is mounted to the steering and suspension system on the front end and the rear axle on the rear end.

 

The Wheel Hub is designed to last the lifespan of a vehicle, however, due to the nature of its function, it is constantly subject to stress, which can break or wear them out prematurely. Also, the wheel hub assembly can be prone to damage caused by multiple driving situations such as: hitting potholes, striking cubs or vehicle collisions. When the part is damaged or is beginning to show signs of premature wear, it will commonly show some warning signs or symptoms that can be easily recognized, including:  snapping, clicking or popping, grinding when the vehicle is in motion, knocking or clunking, humming, rumbling or growling, wheel vibration and/or wobble, Shudder, shimmy or vibration at a constant speed, abnormal side pull when brakes are applied, uneven rotor or brake pad wear, abnormal or uneven tire wear.
