Wheel bearings are a set of steel balls held together by a metal ring and their main function is to reduce friction in the wheel to aid rotation. These bearings rotate with the wheel’s rotation and enable your wheels to spin freely. Wheel bearings are also a critical part of the ABS (anti-lock braking system) as well as the TCS (traction control system).
Indications of faulty wheel bearings:
As soon as you hear these sounds, it is imperative that you bring your vehicle in to get checked out. Wheel bearings withstand a lot of heat as well as enormous pressure and can get worn out like any other part. To avoid your wheels getting locked up, get your car checked at the first indication of any unusual sounds coming from your car.
