SKF Wheel Hub Assembly Kit
Nearly 90 million vehicles worldwide are riding on SKF wheel bearings and hub units — more than all other brands combined. SKF has pioneered every major advance in wheel end technology since the invention of the automobile, and our commitment to innovation continues today. With expertise in not only bearings but seals, lubrication, and mechatronics, SKF is able to look at wheel end technology from a systems viewpoint. The result is improved functionality, reliability, efficiency, and safety.
SKF pioneered the kit concept, which provides the installer with all the components needed for a complete, safe repair all in one box. These premium quality components will help repairs last longer, as they address multiple points of failure.
As a supplier of original equipment hub units to most of the worlds leading automakers, SKF knows better than anyone what goes into making a premium quality hub unit. From the composition of the steel to the quality of the bearing and seals, every aspect of a hub unit is critical to long service life. Imprecise tolerances and poor surface finishing can cause noise and vibration, and low quality reproduction sensors can compromise ABS function. So we asked ourselves, how can some manufacturers claim to offer OE quality hubs and sell them at half the price?
The truth is, they can't.
To prove it, we purchased a large sampling of these so-called OE quality hubs currently available in the aftermarket. We examined every component, and then tested each hub to every one of its actual OE performance specifications. The results were clear: these hubs were NOT OE quality hubs. They were value grade hubs, which are no real value. Not only do they fail quickly, they can result in excessive NVH (noise, vibration and harshness), braking and handling problems, and expose drivers to potential safety risks.
All replacement hub units are not created equal. Don't compromise your customers' vehicle safety; always install SKF premium quality hubs.
