Re: Wheel bearings quality issue
No, its good cause for concern. A bearing job is a pain in the ass so you
should get the best. I personally never heard of SNR so if it were me, Id be a
little annoyed. If you have time Id send them back and get a good name. Do
they at least have metal grease seals? A lot of them are plastic or rubber and
will not last as long. Id give him a piece of your mind.
