Why Does The Chevy Impala Have Wheel Hub Problems?
Like we mentioned earlier, most times when wheel hubs fail it is due to wear over time. If your Chevy is running on the factory sized wheels you can expect your hubs to last around 100,000 miles. If your Impala is fitted with wider or heavier wheels and tires, they can put extra stress on the hub and cause premature wear or failure. Aside from premature hub wear, larger wheels can also cause uneven suspension stress.

Most times when an Impala wheel hub goes bad, it is due to typical wear. Wheel hub assemblies can often last for over 100,000 miles. Chevrolet wheel hub failure can also be caused by impact, improper alignment, or contaminates in the hub itself. You can learn more about what causes wheel hub failure in this blog post.
If you think your wheel hub is experiencing issues, you should stop driving on it. The wheel hub connects the axle to the wheel and allows the wheel to spin smoothly. If the hub is worn it can be a safety and drivability issue. Wheel hubs are designed to be very strong and durable, but like any aspect of a car they will wear over time.
