The Basics Behind Hub Services at Fred's Minnesota Wholesale Tire

Locking hubs, also known as free wheeling hubs, play an important role in four wheel drive systems. Usually located on the front wheels of part-time 4WD vehicles, locking hubs are used to engage the front wheels and transform them into drive wheels as needed. Without locking hubs, a vehicle will not be able to enter into four wheel drive mode. In addition, locking hubs are responsible for disengaging a vehicle from four wheel drive. Working hubs on a part-time 4WD vehicle are important if a driver wants the benefits of each drive mode. Four wheel drive allows a motorist to maintain a high level of control when driving on rough terrain and in harsh environmental conditions, while two wheel drive provides better fuel economy and prevents excessive tire wear. Locking hubs are useful because they make switching between these modes possible.

Why Should You Have Hub Services Performed at Fred's Minnesota Wholesale Tire?

When locking hubs are exposed to the environment, they often incur damage. This makes hub maintenance extremely important for extending the life of your locking hubs. If your hubs are damaged or malfunctioning, please bring your vehicle in for a hub repair. In severe cases, damaged hubs may be unable to engage the drive axle. If this happens, you will not be able to engage four wheel drive. A faulty hub can also cause the reverse condition and prevent you from being unable to disengage from four wheel drive. Depending upon the damage, a hub replacement may be necessary, though in some cases, our service staff may be able to save the hub with a minor repair procedure. At the end of every service, your wheel hubs will be performing as expected.
