Re: Do bad wheel bearings cause pre-mature tire wear? (volvogeek1)
Wheel bearings are typically tapered roller bearings. The little rollers are mounted on a 45 degree angle, so they support the wheeel both as you see it (in the vertical plane) but also horizontally, i.e., in and out. They need to be pretty snug to work and live. Too tight or too loose and they are will be gone very quickly. Which makes me wonder if all of these bearing issues are a material or an installation issue.
