I can buy wheel bearings locally "Napa" for $239 but only 1yr warranty. I just bought wheel bearings for my 1500 1/2 ton at Advanced Auto and they were $278 each with only a 3yr warranty and they were not Timken. $189 for Timken bearings with lifetime warranty and delivered within 2days seemed like a deal to me. Where are Timken actually made? Who knows, they have a global industry and have had a good quality name for many yrs. They have been top notch since the late 1800's when they 1st started. Are they any better? Who really knows, i have had good luck with them and they have a great warranty backing them up.
