    Hello I have a gen 3 prius with 260k miles.
    The rear wheel bearing has gone bad. I wanted to know which brand have you guys used and had a good experience. Do you guys get
    Ebay chinese for $50 Any good ebay brand you guys recommend.
    Moog wheel bearings for $120
    Nsk wheel bearing for $115
    Oem for $275
    Timken $170
    AC Delco?

    I have used moog products before and they always been good but made in china.
    I have been reading in forums NSK is like oem quality.
    Anyone got any advice?
    I average about 20k miles per year.

    My preference has always been timken.
    Never had any problems with them.

    I used oem toyota bearings. Figure if they lasted as long as they did it's a safe bet

    DO NOT BUY TRQ!!! They suck! There isn't enough grease in them to last.
    If you are only putting a few thousand miles a year on your Prius, you'll probably be okay.

    Almost all of them are made in china, sadly. I've gotten a few Toyota parts and the box said made in china.
    But I believe they are held to a higher standard.

    Autozone has moog bearings with a 3 year warranty. At least they are close, you won't have to wait
    a week or so for the parts to get to you when yours go bad, and you won't have to send they defective ones back,
    at your expense!
