Wheel Bearing Information

Located within the wheel hub, wheel bearings are a set of steel balls enclosed by a metal ring. They are located on a metal axle shaft and responsible for holding the bolts that attach the tyre and the wheel. They support the balancing of the vehicle’s weight when turning, which means they wear down over time. Your car’s wheels are mounted on wheel hubs, making it an incredibly important car part.

If you have a bad wheel bearing, it’s likely that your steering is offset and you’ll hear growling, chirping or squealing when turning. Needing to steer excessively or moderately is alsoa sign you may need a wheel bearing replacement.

Depending on the vehicle, wheel bearings usually last approximately 85,000 to 100,000 miles before they need replacing.

Whether you need a front wheel bearing or rear wheel bearing, at Halfords you’ll find a great range of products for all car makes and models.
