So what is going on with wheel bearings?

Hey all, its been a LONG while but I'm back for now lol.

Was doing winter maintenance and found my LF wheel bearing was starting to feel like crap, so needless to say I am going to replace it, and normally I do them in sets (just did the fronts in the DD Protege last year) but this kinda has me asking questions....

2010 MAZDA RX-8 1.3L R2 Wheel Bearing & Hub Assembly | RockAuto

Why in the actual hell are sets W/DSC more then non DSC? Keep in mind if its not timken or OEM I won't buy it (trust me on this people.)

Still will probably still roll with this price but was just wondering.

Just one of those great mysteries in life, that will forever go unanswered.

Base model (sport) 8's that do not have DSC/TC buttons do not have dynamic stability control (DSC) or traction control (TC). If your car has DSC/TC get the DSC/TC wheel bearings. If not, then don't.

side question - how many miles and what type of driving do you do? I had my front left give out on me after about 57k - that was with occasional track use, with my favorite track being a CW track fwiw...
