Exclamation SKF wheel bearing kit

I just installed the SKF rear wheel bearing kit. MSRP $59

It comes with seals, bearings and spacers.

The seals have an inner seal to help keep out water and dirt.

Those look really nice, they appear to be a high quality product. I have SKF seals in my front forks and I have never had a problem with them. The next time I need some for my wheels I'll go the SKF route.

They work well, seem to remember them going the opposite way to what you think, just check the instructions

Need Help! I keep replacing rear wheel bearings at least 2 times a year.

I was using Allballs butr put Skf in and they still went bad.

Someone mentioned the spacer in the middle may not be long enough to push properly on the sides of the bearings.

Another guy said to replace the axle because I have a little play between the axle and bearing.

I DONT KNOW WHATS WRONG and getting tired of replacing them. Any advise, direction, options, steps would be appreciated.

Happy New Year

How are they "going bad"? Do have a photo of the failed bearings? Are there signs of water intrusion?

Sounds like the center spacer has mushroomed, Over torquing the rear axle nut??

I go to a bearing supply shop and get good Japanese or German bearings.
Before installing I pull the seals and, regardless of the brand, I always see that the factory didn't put much grease in them. I load them up.
I remove the bearings a couple times a year to clean and repack them. I usually get several years out of them.
I like the looks of that SKF wheel seal. Let us know if it makes much difference over OEM.

I'm sorry, but I have to dispute this. You spent the extra $$$ for a good Japanese or German bearing, but think you know better than those engineers that there isn't enough grease in their product? Over greasing a bearing can do way more damage than you think. Too much grease dramatically increases rolling resistance and can cause heat (wear) or, more importantly, can actually keep the individual balls from actually rolling. As soon as one of those little balls starts dragging on the outer race (vs rolling), your bearing fails. There are lots and lots of articles discussing the damage done by removing the seals and adding more grease.
