There's nothing mysterious about wheel bearings, even though they're not something most drivers are accustomed to seeing. Wheel bearings are simply a set of steel balls kept in place by a metal ring called a race. Their job is to enable the wheel – or wherever else they're attached – to spin with as little friction as possible. On a vehicle, they sit between the axle and the wheel, enabling the wheel and hub to spin freely on the axle.
