Wheel bearing & wheel bearing kit Information

Any car construction provides two types of bearings: rolling and plain bearings. In all cars there are several dozens of bearings. Almost all automotive components contain bearings that provide perfect and safe car operation: chassis, engine, tires and transmission.

Virtually all of the bearings in the car are subject to a serious load. But the wheel bearing suffers the heaviest load. Loads appear when moving, braking, accelerating. Wheel bearing suffers different forces: radial, axial and combined. For this reason wheel bearing has the strictest requirements. Wheel bearing is a rolling bearing. Like any other rolling bearing, wheel bearing consists of outer and inner rings that hold and at the same time separate the rolling elements of different shapes.

The outer surface of the inner ring and the inner surface of outer ring have grooves - original track, on which the rolling bodies move.

These bodies can be of two kinds: rollers and balls (ball bearings). Actually the name of the bearing depends on the shape of the rolling element. Rollers can be cylindrical, needle, tapered or of another form. Bearings can also be single-row, double rows and multi-rows, depending on the rows of the rolling elements. By the type of load, which the bearings can withstand, they are divided into the following types: radial bearings, thrust bearings, thrust-radial and angular contact ball bearings.
