Are Aftermarket Wheel Bearings Okay??? (Automobile) - April 8, 2011, 03:00 PM

Wanted to put this in the Tech Forum, but alas this is NOT motorcycle related but rather AUTOMOBILE related.

I'm piecing together my Honda Accord to get her driveable again...

Recently had wheel bearings go bad, wheel hubs apparently shot, and caliper seized up....

Anybody have any insight on using aftermarket bearings and wheel hubs instead of OEM? I mean, does anybody have experience with this and have an educated opinion on whether or not aftermarket replacement for these specific components is a "no-no"?

By aftermarket, I mean anything from ebay to Advance Auto Parts.

OEM for these is ridiculous.

P, you can use aftermarket bearings. Honda doesn't make them, someone else does.

LOL!

You got it.

I'm contemplating these parts I am finding on Ebay....

The vendor is a "Top Seller" of this stuff.... idk...

I'm really just trying to get the car back in driving condition.
Getting it ready to sell. Don't want to put anything unreliable on it though...
Not trying to break the bank either though!

Put a fart can on it while you're at it. = more horsepower.

maybe a aftermarket air filter too.


that'll get you more money for it for certain. then you can buy a new bike.

LOL!!!

Admittedly, I fell prey to the FnF fad.... Had a 75 shot Zex Kit (nitrous) on her for a little while.... LOL!!!! What a waste of money.... and time! LOL!

I at least got my money back selling the kit eventually. Fun summer though.



I got your pm by the way... I'll definately take advantage if I don't go with the ebay parts.... They are definately cheaper even with that discount.

Yeah, I know.

Front bearings will have to be pressed. Only the rears come with the bearings already installed.

Yeah...

Assuming these guys are good, I did pass up a really good deal where they were selling the bearings AND the hubs together (pair) for under $100.

Still researching though.... Don't have loot to throw away...

No issues using aftermarket bearings. Generally speaking, precisions bearings made in Japan are the best. One of the things they are noted for is their precision and durability. Basically a byproduct of learnings from the electronics industry, hardrives specifically.



“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

Aftermarket is a decent alternative. I would check with Advance and see if they have them or a local japanese parts place. I would shy away from buying bearings off ebay due to possible defects. Plus if they do go bad within the warranty period, you wont be out too much money.
