Re: [Chrysler300] ....and now for a discussion or wheel bearing races

I would be looking for a new hub.  There is really no way  to re-center the race once it has spun.  The JB Weld and Permatex bearing mount/ sleeve retainer will “seat” the race in the bore, but it’s not going to hold up under the weight, heat,  and torsional stresses the wheel and hub go through.  It’s a lot like using a punch to “stake” a bad bearing bore to take up the slack.

I just had my C300 front drums turned. The machinist noted that one inner and another outer race can be rotated in the hub by hand. I drove the car 2.000 miles last year with no problem – lucky?

The bearings are only a few years old so I really don’t want to start over by looking for new(er) drums or hubs and new bearings again etc.

Anybody have any experience setting races in JB Weld or similar?.
