A gasket hub cover is a seal that sits between the hub cap and the wheel hub. It prevents dirt, water, and other contaminants from entering the wheel end assembly and damaging the bearings and other components.
They are an important part of the wheel end assembly, and they should be inspected and replaced regularly. If a gasket hub cover is cracked or damaged, it can allow contaminants to enter the wheel end assembly and cause premature wear and tear.
Here are some of the benefits of using gasket hub covers:
- Prevent dirt, water, and other contaminants from entering the wheel end assembly
- Protect the bearings and other components from damage
- Extend the life of the wheel end assembly
- Improve fuel efficiency
- Reduce road noise
- Enhance the appearance of the vehicle
