Moog has not been any good for some years now. The parent company bought National and for a long time Moog branded was NOS National, now its mostly cheap white box Chicom crap.My fathers wheel bearings in his 07 Chevy car failed three different times in 60k miles. When it went bad again at 75k, he just dumped the car.
I use NSK or Moog without issue.
WJB is the brand of Bearing.WOW, so many brands that I've never heard of. Most likely because not all brands are made for my vehicles when I look up bearings.
What is WJB?
I was always a TIMKEN brand bearing guy because this is what worked and my circle of car guys(used them) however they seem NOT to last the test of time any longer. You know? The bearing that you replace and never have to replace it ever again during your tenure with a vehicle(10-15 years).

It is unusual to find any internet list that is credible but this one I 100% agree with.
When buying online, be aware of the bad wheel bearing brands to avoid because many retailers sell fake wheel bearing tools.worstbrands.com
Got my Rockauto order today. The brand I got for their Ultra-power brand is Proline. Looks like it's one of the brands Pep Boys carry when searching online. Anyone use Proline before? Not expecting much as far as longevity. If they last two years, I'd be happy.

AAP memory again, a factory rep came into the store and bought the Korean bearing, she told me that the Quality was Better and they needed to examine the bearing to see why !!, many times Factory reps came to storeIt appears most SKF wheel bearings are made in Korea; you shouldn't have any issues with them. FAG is another good option, if it's available for your application. But even when it comes to parts, the brand you choose tends to be application specific so I would not just blindly go on brand alone.
OK, I'll bite, how is this bad for wheel bearings? I can see it being slightly worse for suspension parts like bushings that aren't in their natural geometry. Is it the "sticktion" of the suspension putting more of a pounding on the bearings?Your Acura should not need new rear wheel bearings unless it was towed with the rear tires on the ground, like a tow dolly.
