Wheel bearings are low maintenance parts, but that doesn’t mean they last forever. A wheel bearing is a crucial part of the wheel assembly that connects the wheel and the axle. It is a set of steel balls (ball bearings) or tapers (tapered bearings), held together by a metal ring. It enables the wheel to rotate smoothly with a minimum of friction. Wheel bearings are safety critical components designed to sustain radial and axial loads caused by gravitation, acceleration, breaking & cornering forces, so they need to be replaced when they stop working properly.
Bearings last between 75,000 to 100,000 miles, but this will vary based on operating conditions. If you hear a humming, rumbling or growling noise that increases with acceleration or as the vehicle turns, a loud constant whining or grinding noise when the vehicle is in motion, clunking noises when driving over uneven road surfaces, vibration through the steering wheel, or the ABS light comes up on the dashboard, then it’s most likely due to bad wheel bearings. No need to worry as Advantage have you covered.
