SKF offers a complete line of hub bearings, highlighted by its X-tracker hybrid hub bearing and its offering of hub bearing kits. SKF’s X-Tracker Hybrid hub bearing unit evolved from its original X-Tracker hub bearing unit design. The SKF X-Tracker hub bearing unit consists of a unique double row angular contact ball bearing arrangement (with the outboard row at a higher diameter and containing more balls than the inner row), which increases the bearing’s capacity while improving hub stiffness by 50% over a traditional tapered bearing unit. Additionally, it provides precision handling and braking characteristics, ultimately delivering improved handling and comfort.

SKF’s hub bearing kit is designed to save time by providing everything an automotive technician needs to replace a hub bearing, including a cartridge-style wheel bearing, C-clip, axle nut, seals and the only premium hub flange in the aftermarket that meets 100 percent OE Specification. SKF’s hub bearing kit reduces the chance of customer returns by providing quality parts designed to fit and work properly together, eliminating the hassle of purchasing separate parts, sometimes from separate suppliers.
