Try to figure out from the parts price what the bearing cost itself roughly is, The $25 bearings are junk and you are looking at closer to $50 to get a good bearing that will last if it is installed right.

I say because most of the bearing makers have a value priced part and then the better quality part and the value ones are the ones that commonly cause trouble. Some don't even have any grease inside them to fail quick.

Timken are fine but they DO have a low price line coming from China. Beware.

BEWARE OF THE BOX! They constantly switch the bearings in boxes and I myself did hundreds of them. Go by the bearing itself.

The two brands mentioned as well as Bowers, BCA, Fafnir, FMC can be good. Be guided by the price like said.
