Default Wheel bearing selection.

Can anyone recommend a good brand of heavy duty wheel bearings?

Moog, Timken, AC-Delco. Not necessarily in that order.

The best I've had were the stock ones but they are pricey!

I would also make sure You are installing the nut to factory torque specs Anything before or after that chews them up quicker impact guns I know this sounds dumb And you already know this But You be amazed at the amount of people i seen with a impact gun or "eyeball it" and then 3 months later say the wheel bearing was cheap
