Wheel Bearing Brands

I'm in dire need of new front wheel bearings/hubs.

What is your recommendation for good price/quality ratio?

Is it worth the $122/ea for OEM's?
(or $111 on Pelican)

The prices makes me kind of meh at this point in my finances...

that aint bad. if you do wheel bearing only, sure itll be cheaper for the part, but if you dont have a press that can actually push it out, then youre gunna pay someone labor to change them out. then youre looking at say another $50 per hub. so in essence, price wise is gunna be close.

when i had to get my wheel bearing changed on my mazda, the dealer i was working at couldnt get the bearing out with there 20ton press. we had to take it to a shop that did semi truck maintenance and had them use their 100ton press and of course, broke the first one. and that car was the same age. i cant remember if something slipped or not, but man they were not happy with me
