Tire HMMMM… masked early warning

As the title says my tires did a good job of hiding the warning sounds my wheel bearings were making. Not a big deal but its nice to know they are bad before they sound like I filled my diff with sand and grinded my ring and pinion to ****. Either way it was a quick job in the driveway for $225.00. I am constantly monitoring my truck and feel that i take better care than most but its easy to over look something like that. Moral of the story jack it up and check for wiggle and spin it for sound because they may be bad already and if you dont change them out…. THEY WILL GET YOU!

Not sure…. If it goes for awhile it sounds really bad. But its the entire hub assembly that must be replaced because you can't service just the bearing. If i had to guess i would say that the wheel should not fall off. But some of the more seasoned gentlemen can chime in if I am wrong.

Worsted case senario the bearing can get super hot on the highway and one of two things are possible at that point. It can weld itself solid, which will likely damage the spindle. Or I've seen one on a ranger get hot enough that it started a fire and the truck was a total loss.
