Wheel Seal

A Wheel seal is the part of the vehicle that connects the axle to the rear differential or the transmission. The purpose of the Wheel seal is to keep transmission fluid from leaking. Depending on the size of the leak, it may be okay to drive with a leaking Wheel seal, but not for very long.

Axle seals

Seals in wheel bearings are key in determining the life of the unit. If the seal allows external contaminants to enter the bearing or lubricant to escape from the bearing, then premature failure of the unit will result.

SKF wheel end seals providing oil and grease sealing offer enhanced performance in a wide range of temperatures and fluid environments, performance and longer life under virtually all driving and road conditions.

SKF's custom design capabilities, testing procedures and extensive production experience allow development of the most advanced designs to keep out road contamination and retain lubricant in the bearings.
For wheel end applications we can provide seals for:
* Cars and light trucks
* Heavy duty trucks and off road applications
* Motorcycles and recreational vehicles
