Wheel bearing Problems?

Wheel bearing problems occur due to excessive loads on the bearing (e.g. potholes) and heat build up due to lack of lubrication.

There should never be a rumbling, groan or grinding sound coming from the wheels of your car, nor any vibration through the steering wheel (unless of course you are driving over corrugated roads)!

Wheel bearing issues usually come about due to poorly sealed bearings or lack of lubrication. Worn bearings are very dangerous as they can collapse and cause the wheel to detach from the car. They can also cause uneven wear on the tyres, loud noises and vibration in the car.

The wheels on your vehicle need to operate in a smooth manner, regardless of surfaces and speeds. When there is damage to the wheel bearings, the drive is no longer smooth and friction will build up. This friction can then break down the wheel bearings and cause wear and tear on the axle.
