Hi All

I have seen some talk over previous months about Chinese wheel bearings being crap (not to be too subtle). Just seen these guys selling on Ebay and wondered if anyone has experience of company and products?

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Front-Rear-Wheel-Bearing-Lancia-Beta-HPE-ie-2-0-122BHP-Est-/110877697899?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item19d0d3676b&_uhb=1

Product is from Veco, never heard of them so thought I would ask, also if anyone has alternative suggestion for supplier?

I would keep looking on eBay for new old stock unless you are in a hurry, much cheaper usually I have never paid more than a tenner for old stock ones. Veco bearings will most likely be from a reputable source  it is more likely that bearings will be poor quality from unbranded listings. Old stock items will almost always be fag or skf in a suppliers box.  The beta bearing is the same dimension as many renaults FAG list them
