Wheel bearings

Recommended Posts

I am putting new rotors on my 72. The new rotors came without bearings and I am wondering which brand would be the best?

any bearing made in the USA, Europe, Japan..... China, India are a no go for me. I like timken but I'll use anything well made

For years Timken bearings have been an industry standard.  I haven't done wheel bearings in years so I can't say for sure that still holds true but I suspect it still is.

I used Motor City by Federal Mogul in my '70 4-speed and Timken in my '70 SS.  No issues with either brand.
