Do DISCOIDS wheel covers affect the temperature in the wheel bearings?
No, not at all. Because DISCOIDS wheel covers are only a fraction of a millimeter thin, they provide no significant thermal insulation. Our real world, extreme temperature measurements using a digital pyrometer performed on wheels during skating sessions on hot Texas blacktops, tarmacs, macadam surfaces during 100+ degree summer days, showed typical results: The tests revealed the hubs or cores of the wheels and the wheels bearings all remained at approximately “ambient conditions” – the temperature of the outside air. It’s the wheel edge meeting the friction of the road that gets hot. DISCOIDS wheel covers don’t affect the temperature of the wheels or bearings.
- According to Greg Moore: Its also the same fitting as is on the teardropstyle alloy wheel covers. [Verified: Tom Coradeschi] Q: How do I know my front wheel bearings are shot?
