Timken vs Moog wheel bearing.

So I bought a couple wheel bearing hubs off ebay and they didn't last but 6 months...has anyone else had this problem?

so now i'm opting to go with either Moog or Timken. Do you have any preferences...I also have 32x11.5's so there would be more stress on the bearing itself.

Timken 100%

Did you torque to the proper spec?

Timken is far more reliable, better quality, Moog use to be but they are now manufacturing their parts in china unless your fortunate to get some NOS moog parts?

timken every day and twice on sunday for bearings.
timken, skf, ntn, f.a.g. etc are all excellent choices for bearings.
but if you don't care for them properly they won't last that long.
175ftlbs on the hub nut with light oil on the threads.

ebay hubs are nothing but back door chinese factory garbage. the crap they won't even send to america for autozone to sell.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

Timkin definitely. That what I dropped into my ZJ a few months ago. And at about $55-$60 each, they were pretty fairly priced imo.

Another Timken vote, just did the wheel bearings in my car. No-name brand lasted about a week before it started making noise and I replaced it with a Timken.

oil on the threads and 175 ft lbs...referring to the single hub bolt for the axle, or the 3 bolts that hold the bearing to the knuckle?

175 ft lbs on the single hub nut. I never oiled my hub nut, I put it on dry.

Edit: 75 ft lbs for the three bolts holding the hub assembly to the steering knuckle.
