The wheel hub holds a vehicle’s wheels in place. When properly functioning, the front hub ensures that a vehicle’s tires turn freely, that the ABS system works properly, and that fuel efficiency is normal. A rear wheel hub provides a solid mounting point for the rear wheel to bolt onto and ensures smooth rotation at all speeds.
A worn out or loose wheel hub assembly can lead to a catastrophic wheel failure. Because the wheel hub holds the vehicle’s wheels in place, it is a critical component and should be fixed as soon as possible. Wheel hub replacements should be done in pairs, because when one is worn to the point of needing replacement, the other will generally have the same amount of wear.
If you suspect that your wheel hub assembly needs to be replaced, you should schedule service from one of our expert mechanics immediately. Replacement of a wheel hub assembly may require specialized tools that are best left operated by professional mechanics.
The wheel hub assembly is an essential component of any vehicle. If the wheel hub assembly is not in good operational condition, the wheel can separate from the axle. This is an extreme safety hazard, and repair should never be delayed.
