Have you heard an unusual growling or humming noise as you drive? Perhaps you’ve felt vibrations when driving. Maybe you’ve even noticed that your tires are wearing out unevenly. If you’ve noticed these signs on your vehicle, then you might need a wheel bearing hub assembly replacement right away. But what is a wheel bearing hub?

To put it simply, the wheel bearing hub of your vehicle serves as the mounting point for the wheel/tire assembly. Also known as the wheel hub, the wheel bearing hub assembly typically consists of wheel bearings and the main hub itself. Several components and parts are attached to the wheel hub assembly, including the brake shield and calipers, rotor disc, the anti-lock braking system (ABS), harness cable, and wheels.
