I agree with the others, SKF are good bearings. I personally like Timken which are manufactured in the US and stamped accordingly. After 35 years With CN Rail in the maintenance department, most railway car wheels are equipped with Timken bearings and their failure rate is lower than any other brand. A good source here in Ontario is Bears, email bears@jet2.net, or check out www.bearsperformance.com for a free cataloque.I'm not plugging this firm, just passing it on as I have found them really helpfull. Hope this helps.
