Wheel bearings quality issue
In a recent order from my local parts supplier , I ordered some new wheel
bearings for my 200. I asked what brand he carried, and he said SKF or
FAG. The bearings I received were neither of these.
It's an SNR , A bearing which Im not familiar with. I go by appearance
on bearings and these look dull with fine grinding marks on the sides of
the casing,. made in France. and the company shows on an internet search
as a subsidiary of Renault. Should I be concerned? IM getting upset with
the delivered goods not being the stated brand. I recall the
Top line bearings like SKS and Fag having a highly polished stainless
sheen, these are dull matt finish, looks like base metal on a cheap
watch. Please let me know if Im overly
vigilant re appearances.
