Terrain Tamer wheel bearings to withstand demanding conditions

Terrain Tamer has released a range of heavy-duty wheel bearing and combination swivel housing kits, specifically designed and manufactured for vehicles that operate in extreme conditions.

Practical for unforgiving terrain and extreme applications such as mining, the kits are comprised of bearings that have been made in Japan, with a Rockwell hardness rating that is 2.5 points higher than the original equipment (OE) equivalent.

These bearings combine a new forging technique with an upgraded heat treatment procedure to enable a longer service life.

The kits also include an innovative new range of heavy-duty hub seals which rotate on their own internal surface without relying on the condition of the shaft, and thus eliminating wear on other components.

These seals utilise a labyrinth construction to better prevent the loss of oil and lubricating fluids and better protect against the ingress of dirt and other contaminants, making them perfectly suited to harsh, muddy and dusty conditions and ensuring both extended seal and bearing life.

As with all Terrain Tamer bearing kits, the new heavy duty kits also include all required components, such as gaskets, nuts, gear lever seats and bushes, boots, washers, et cetera, and all parts are covered by a 12-month warranty.

Terrain Tamer heavy duty bearing kits are now available for a growing number of Toyota Hilux and Landcruiser models.
