Wheel bearings aren’t a part of maintenance that you regularly think about. At American Auto Clinic in Albuquerque, we know there are a lot of vehicles on the road with failing wheel bearings, with drivers that aren’t even aware there’s a problem. Bearings fail slowly, typically, so it’s entirely possible that your car is making excessive road noise, underperforming, wearing out your tires, and decreasing your ride quality, without you even knowing it. Since they wear out slowly, most of the time you don’t notice how bad a bearing has deteriorated until it’s been replaced, and you’re reminded of the way your car, truck, or SUV is supposed to perform.
