Been reading about or have seen previously of people buying wheel bearings which don’t last 5 minutes

Seems to be loads on flebay

Is the link below any good? Manufacturer is FAG Online car parts

Thanks for any help

I would not buy anything from fleabay If you are expect quality or longevity

Your link does not work but FAG is a good brand just depends if its genuine or a cheap copy

FAG are a superb make. Ive fitted them on the rear of mine. I cant comment on longetivity yet, but I have no doubt they will be fine. Ive used all sorts of bearings from FAG through my line of work.

FAG or SKF get my vote, cheaper China iron or Birth just don't last and feel like they're made from soft cheese.
