Wheel bearings aren’t a part of maintenance that you regularly think about. At R.C. Bratcher, Inc in Owensboro, 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.
Your wheel bearings support the weight of your entire vehicle, and as a result they wear out from time to time. If your vehicle is exhibiting symptoms of a faulty wheel bearing, have it replaced before it fails entirely; a failed bearing can cause loss of control, a wheel to fall off, or other damage as a result. If you aren’t sure when your bearings were last replaced, ask your mechanic to check the bearings next time you bring your car in for servicing. Good technicians know what to look for. For all your bearing needs, and for any other maintenance or repair, trust the professionals at R.C. Bratcher, Inc. We’ll keep your car in shape for the road ahead.
