Fanfare for the Common Hub

Hub & Bearings

Aaron Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man (which you may know as the Chicago Blackhawks intro music) was debuted right around this time in 1943. At the time, Copland said “I am all for honoring the common man at income tax time.” I know you didn’t come here for a music history class, but bear with me here. We’re all for honoring the common man too, and in addition, we’d like to honor the common wheel hub.

Sure, mirrors are flashy and headlights take the limelight, but when the rubber hits the road, the wheel hub is never far away – literally. The wheel hub is like your man on the ground. He’s the guy holding it all together. So if your bearings can’t bear any more, whether it’s from age, dirt, rust or anything else, then maybe it’s time to put hubs at the center of your mind, and remember just how much revolves around them (like your wheels for starters).

Auto Parts 101 - We Wrote All About 'Em!

Remember that commercial where that one guy goes "Hey man, is that Freedom Rock?" and the other guy was like "YEA MANNNN", and then the first guy was all like "WELL TURN IT UP MANNNN!". Well, that was an awesome commercial. Amazingly it has nothing to do with Sealed Beam, Composite, HID, Projector, and Quad headlights. Shameful right? But guess what!? It's your lucky day my friends, because we wrote all about them right here. And these articles will give you the joy that you haven't felt since watching that terrific commercial from 1987. Go ahead, read one.
