SKF Wheel Hub Bearing 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.
SKF premium quality wheel hub bearings are optimized for the special characteristics encountered on car wheel applications, offering specific support the moment load is applied to the bearing during cornering. They typically mount with the original manufacturer's suspension and wheel flanges, and are usually greased and sealed for life, though some applications still use open designs.
Though value grade hub bearings may appear to be the better value, their inferior design and construction mean greater risk of noise, shorter life, and a higher rate of early failure. SKF prides itself on selling and manufacturing only the best wheel solutions, to keep you and your customers happy.
