Wheel Hub Assembly
Wheel Hub Assembly - Find Wheel Hubs, Replacement Parts & More at BuyAutoParts.com
The wheel hub assembly is one of the most commonly misunderstood parts on the market today. Some people confuse the rotor with wheel hubs, while others think the axle is part of the wheel hub assembly. Actually, in the most simple terms, all of the components between the drive axle and the brakes (either disc or drum style) are considered part of the wheel hub.
On the axle side of the assembly, the wheel hub mounts to the car's chassis. On the opposite (brake) side, the wheel hub's bolts serve as your tire's primary mount. Inside the hub unit is the wheel bearings. The bearings help ensure consistent, smooth movement of the hub around the axle. Whenever the bearings inside the wheel hub go bad, your car usually produces an unmistakable whine or droning noise.
Common causes for wheel bearing failure are improper lubrication and excessive wear and tear. After so many miles, even the best wheel hub assemblies need to be replaced. Generally, you should inspect your wheel bearings and the entire wheel hub assembly every 20,000 miles or so. Wheel hub replacement components are necessary to stabilize your car and ensure a safe ride. Although some wheel hubs can last over the 125,000 mile mark, most wheel hub and their related assembly parts require complete replacement at 75,000 or 100,000 miles. The two biggest factors for determining wheel hub assembly performance are driving style and climate.
To perform your own wheel hub inspection, safely jack your car up and spin the entire wheel hub assembly. It should spin freely; if not, there may be issues with the internal bearings or external blemishes and defects. The "one side = both sides" rule, common with brake pads, rotors and other axle parts, also applies to your wheel hub assembly; if one side needs replaced, you're better off just replacing the entire axle set. If you replace just one wheel hub, sooner or later you'll need the opposite side; it's only a matter of time. You might as well finish the job for good while you're already working on your car.

A durable wheel hub made of quality materials will prevent your wheel from falling or slipping from your car.

Wheel Hub Replacement
Not all wheel hubs come with brand new components. Some are remanufactured, meaning that some parts have been restored or repaired, instead of being replaced with new parts. While remanufactured options come at a cheaper price, some may doubt their quality. It's advised to use a manufacturer that tests and assesses the remanufactured units to ensure proper functionality and quality. If you have some cash to spare and want every component in the assembly to be brand new, you can always search for new parts from top brands and trusted sellers. Be sure to review the product specs to be certain that what you order is completely new.
Wheel hub replacement assemblies are available as a direct fit or as universal items. As the name suggests, universal wheel hubs can fit a wide range of vehicle models, while direct fits are specifically made for one vehicle.
