I read with interest about the seizure of over 100,000 fake auto bearing materials that were set to be shipped to the US this spring. In fact, The World Bearing Association reports that fake automotive bearings have become a “cancer” on the industry, and are putting motorists at serious risk. These illicit materials are being promoted as genuine bearing replacements for brakes, oil filters and even air bags. How can you recognize genuine and avoid the hazards of look-alike counterfeit bearing materials? Partner with a trusted bearing supplier!
