Quality Parts Wheel-Ends

At H-E Parts, we work closely with component manufacturers to specify the optimum components for the application. H-E Parts wheel bearings feature premium clean steel for long fatigue life, crowning that distributes load more evenly and super finishes that reduce the incidence of thin film lubrication and increase life. Our debris resistant bearings feature special textured rollers and surface treatments for improved performance in harsh operating conditions.

Carbon Friction Discs

H-E Parts now offer high-performance carbon friction discs providing longer service life and better heat resistance. The carbon plates give customers the opportunity to better match brake life to wheel-end life.
