wheel bearings

I’m using so called “sealed” cartridge type bearings in our car’s wheel hubs. They are not as free running (under no load conditions that is) as good cup and cone hubs, and they tend to bind slightly when pre-loaded too much by hub retaining nut. I’ll look into removing rubber seal from bearings and I wonder if they need to be “run in” for a few hundred miles 🙂

See here for an interesting discussion on bearings.
