    Questions, Questions, Questions

    This week in the garage, Rebecca has the Hyundai Ioniq Electric which is quite a different take on a battery powered vehicle than the Kona she drove a couple of weeks back.

    Keeping it Running

    This week we have the whole crew back together again with a diverse array of machinery in the garage. Rebecca started off with what is arguably the best driving (if not the most attractive) hot hatch today, the Honda Civic Type-R. From there she transitioned to another small hatchback, the Hyundai Kona EV. The Kona… Read More »Keeping it Running

Excellent

Rebecca, Dan and Sam really do have an amazing thing going on here. All very knowledgeable, and the info is given in a very casual, down-to-earth kind of way. Its almost like three friends sitting around for an hour or more to talk about everything and anything automotive related.

Even when things get technical they have a very good way of keeping it light and fun and interesting. If you are into cars in any way, give Wheel Bearing a listen.

A full 360 of everything Automotive

Full coverage of automobiles, industry and technology from three reviewers that span all the corners of cars.

Sam is an engineer with an encyclopedic knowledge of manufacturing, electrical systems and platforms while Rebecca specializes in the branding, target buyers and marketing while Dan gives an every person’s view on why we should love (or hate) the vehicle and the company’s direction.

Together, the reviews and discussion is more then opinions and numbers. It’s a full 360 view of the models they test and the industry.

For those enthusiasts craving some some Automotive TMI!
