New Trailer Wheel Bearings in Hamilton

About trailer wheel bearings:

Just like your car’s wheels, trailer wheels have bearings which help each wheel to spin with as little friction as possible. This reduces wheel noise, and allows for smoother and quieter trailer operation. 

Wheel bearings are usually made of high-quality steel, and are fitted tightly onto each wheel’s hub (or assembly). Although they are made to last for as long as possible, wheel bearings can eventually fail, resulting in them needing to be replaced.

Why is wheel bearing replacement important?

Although the wheel bearings on your trailer shouldn’t require any periodic maintenance, they should be inspected to ensure they are working safely and correctly. 

Putting off a wheel bearing replacement can create serious safety risks. If the wheel bearing completely fails, you run the risk of the entire wheel becoming unattached from your trailer. This is a serious safety issue, especially when driving with a trailer at higher speeds and oncoming traffic.

Signs / symptoms of a bad trailer wheel bearing:

Grinding noise from wheels – If your trailer’s wheels are producing a loud grinding noise, your wheel bearings may be due for replacement.

Increased tyre wear – Damaged wheel bearings can cause your trailer’s tyres to wear quickly and unevenly. This will cost you more money over time. 

Wheels wobbling or vibrating – A loose/damaged wheel bearing can cause your trailer’s wheels to move unpredictably. If your trailer’s wheels are vibrating or wobbling, it may be time to examine and replace the wheel bearings(s).

All of the above issues will be checked at trailer Warrant of Fitness / WOF time.
