    NSK, NTN, SKF, Shaeffler, Timkin....

    There are dozens of possible manufacturers, but unless you are buying hundreds of thousands of sets per year for a number of years (like the bigger car manufacturers do), they are unlikely to make bearings to your design.

    Furthermore if they were to make you an exact copy of an existing bearing they could fall foul of regulations regarding patents or copyrights.

    However, most bearings, even for quite high volume cars, are not specially designed, so the chances are that a few of the common manufacturers will have an off-the-shelf bearing that fits whatever car you need them for.

    You study the 'existing' bearing, which is bound to have markings that actually give information about it. Better still, just clean it and take it to a bearing supplier, and tell them you want 2 replacements. Generally, any bearing retailer will have replacements, but some (ther better ones) tend to specialise in automotive bearings of all types in particular.

    Easy?

    They don't do that. You're not gong to save money by eliminating the middle man. Go to a parts store and buy bearings.

    Since that's not going to happen just go to Advance Auto and purchase the correct wheel bearings for your car. Most press in wheel bearings are under $60. Hub assemblies are between $130 and $175.

    Do a search on youtube to see how replacing the wheel bearings on your vehicle is done.

    Not sure what you are working with in terms of bearings - but bearings are fairly standardized by sizes and readily available (not custom) and have been for well over half a century.

    Have you tried a shop that sells bearings? I live I'm a small town and we have one.

    I was a machinist. It would be very expensive to set up jigs and dies for two wheel bearings.

    I wish you would have given make model yr.
