Angular misalignments of the outer ring(s) relative to the inner ring(s) of double row tapered roller bearings can only be accommodated by force between the rollers and raceways. This causes appreciably higher bearing loads and should be avoided. If misalignments cannot be ruled out and if the application permits, the TDI configuration bearings with their rows of rollers arranged face-to-face are not so stiff as the TDO bearings, and should be used.
