after market front wheel bearing add good as OEM?

Replacing my rotors and pads and want to replace the frontas much wheel bearing....waiting on rear because I think they are press in (rear) vs front wich are bolt in.

On ECStuning there are 2 versions...one is almost 2X as much (OEM) and wanted to know if the cheaper version would be okay.

First off I don't get why you are replacing these is the bearing gone yet? or is the hub itself rusted too bad to use? If not I would not replace them yet if so I would go with the OEM knowing they last years IMO

Doing a rotor/pad install and also want new hubs. I am also getting a lot of whine from the bearings.

well for a bearing it's normally very apparent if they are gone if not I would not change them until they are gone.
