I need to replace my wheel hub in my 2010 jeep commander 3.7. I was looking around at parts. The penny pincher in me tells me to swing it with something cheap. However I don't want to have to replace it in a year from doing so. Does anyone know any decent aftermarket brands they have used for wheel hubs? I have used Detroit axle before and was satisfied but their wheel hubs had poor reviews.

try Precision bearing


they are kinda priced inbetween the oem and cheap wheel hub assembly and I have had good luck with them.


I'd buy Callahan autoparts if I could.

Detroit Axle sells utter garbage Chinese parts, avoid them at all costs. Go look through reviews for suspension components (on Amazon or Ebay) and you'll be disturbed how many review photos are of accidents their parts have caused.

I've had good luck with GMB brand hubs, they are a middle of the road to budget offering, but both times I used them they lasted a few years until I sold the vehicle.

This is an instance where paying more for a quality product once will pay off for years to come.
SKF or Timken for wheel bearings.

Another vote for SKF or Timken, though some have said their Timkens weren't up to snuff. You should see Timken engraved on the bearing if it's their top quality part.

Make sure you get the axle nut torque right using a torque wrench and replace the nut if it looks questionable.

Don't waste your money on cheap hubs or bearings, in the end it inevitably turns out to be anything but cheap. SKF is a good solid choice, Timken has gotten a bit sketchy with some of their reboxed numbers.
Detroit Axle and Moog are certifiable rubbish.

I bought a cheap wheel bearing from, https://ca.autoshack.com/search , a few years ago and it stayed on the car until I recently scrapped it. Worked for me but the choice is yours.
