Wheel Hubs

HyperParts stock a wide range of quality and durable wheel hubs for various vehicles and models.

Most modern vehicles in South Africa are fitted with pre-assembled units, known as wheel-hub assemblies.

Each wheel has a dedicated hub located between the drive axle and the disc or drum brake. It features a flange on one end for mounting the wheel, brake and tyre, and a bearing and set of teeth, which lock into the drive axle, on the other.

A vehicle’s wheel hubs are prone to impact damage and can wear out over time. Similarly, the bearings can fail, requiring the replacement of the entire wheel-hub assembly.

Tell-tale symptoms of damaged or faulty wheel hubs are grinding, humming, clicking or abrasive-sounding noises emanating from the wheels.

When the sounds increase in volume along with the speed of the vehicle, it’s a clear indication of a problem with the bearings or the wheel hubs.

Vibrations on the steering wheel, which worsen as the car accelerates, or an ABS warning light flashing on the dash, are also signs of a potentially defective wheel-hub assembly.

The average life span of a wheel hub depends on several factors, such as drive performance, road conditions and loads.

As a result, a hub assembly only needs to be replaced when it shows signs of wear. However, it’s advisable to replace both units on the same axle at the same time.

Replacing the wheel hub of a vehicle is neither technical nor labour-intensive. It takes an hour or so and requires a few basic tools.

Our range of high-performance wheel hubs are durable, reliable and manufactured by renowned global automotive brands.
