Wheel bearings enable your wheels to spin freely. And while some wheel bearings can be serviced, others require hub replacement. For those that can be replaced, preventive maintenance can be done. This procedure involves removing the bearings, carefully cleaning them and inspecting for any imperfection. If the bearing can be reused, we reinstall them, and pack them with grease. If not, we put on new bearings.
Taking care of old bearings is extremely important. When bearings go bad, they produce enough heat to cause the wheel to lock up. In extreme cases, the wheel can even come off! So make sure you get them inspected regularly to stay safe and prevent costly (and avoidable) damage to your wheels.
