Rear Wheel Bearings Question

Recommended Posts

What size of socket do you use to press in bearings into your rear hub or what do you use to press bearings in?

Whatever size matches or is slightly smaller than the the bearing outer diameter.  You want the socket to only press on the outer race.  It is best to put the bearings in a freezer for a couple of hours and heat the hub with a torch or heat gun just before you install the bearing.  Using this method the bearings should almost fall in. Good luck.
