Wheel Bearing

So it looks like i have a front wheel bearing going out and wanted to see if there is any branding to look for as I have been checking them on Ebay or if it is smart to go ahead and get the wheel and the hub though I have no reason to suspect at this point the hub has any issues.

Don't buy the cheap eBay hubs. They have tons of play. Took me 3 before I got one that was 'in spec'.

Knowing what I know now I'd def just grab my ankles and go OEM.
