Wheel bearing - GenuineAR or Aftermarket?

Hi All,

Need to replace the wheel bearing on my 159 SW

Looking at the cost of the parts, a genuine one 160 & an aftermarket one at 70

Any reason for sticking to genuine parts?


I'd hope it would last more than twice as long as the aftermarket for that price!

Good to know where particular aftermarket comes from...
SNR/SKF bearings are good enough while Febi/Optimal/NK ones I would not stay with.

The original ones are rubbish as far as I'm concerned, as I have lost 2 already under 40k miles.

When originals are that useless why not just save money and go aftermarket? Mine were replaced by originals but that's only because mechanic only used original and it was paid for my warranty anyway so I didn't care, if it was my own money I would have gone aftermarket.
