The wheel hub is the point where the tyre and rim is mounted to the steering mechanism. Occasionally a wheel hub can wear or impact to the wheel can cause it to buckle. When this happens, your wheel hub needs to be replaced asap as it can impact your suspension, braking system, and cause excessive tyre wear.
Telltale signs your wheel hub needs replacing are looser steering, pulling and strange noises and scraping sounds.
Before you rush out to replace your wheel hub, check it is not your suspension arm or wheel bearing that needs replacing or your vehicle just needs a simple wheel re-alignment.
The wheel hub can be easily replaced at low cost with moderate mechanical knowledge.
