11 Clear Symptoms of Bad Wheel Bearing

You already know your vehicle cannot operate safely or effectively without robust wheels. You may not realize that the wheel is not a specific component. In reality, a great deal of complexity is involved in constructing a wheel, and multiple components must be connected.

A prime illustration of this is the wheel bearing. Wheel bearings are essential for the smooth operation of your wheels, particularly the hub, tire, and components. They are also susceptible to overuse, which makes it imperative to recognize the signs and symptoms of a failing wheel bearing.

What Are Wheel Bearings?

A set of ball bearings or tapered bearings is what we refer to as a wheel bearing. Ball bearings are made of steel, and tapered bearings are made of steel. A metal ring known as a “race” keeps these bearings in place so they can rotate freely. It is called a “hub,” a hollow piece of metal located in the middle of the wheel. The wheel bearings are designed to fit within the hub, which helps the wheels to rotate.

How Does a Wheel Bearing Work?

To make it easy, imagine 2 rings, one bigger than the other, then you put one inside the other and insert multiple mini steel balls between them. Now you hold the inner ring still, and the other one will be able to move as it would roll, thanks to the mini steel balls.

How Long Do Wheel Bearings Last?

Although wheel bearings are designed to last the whole life of a vehicle, they can wear out and break. Wheel bearings typically last between 85,000 and 100,000 miles before they must be changed. Some vehicles’ wheel bearings live significantly longer than others, while others require replacement relatively soon. It depends on the quality of your wheel bearings and the conditions under which you typically drive.
