    Which degree hubs did you go for mate ??
    I know some folk are mentioning that the bearing doesn't look squarely fitted from your photo but if they are anything other than Zero degree hubs then the bearings do NOT fit squarely into the hub, it's the bore that's machined at an angle to suit the amount of degree required.

    Are you using the Bearings from the hub supplier or have you found some of your own from another supplier ?

    I would be inclined to agree with Spent, that you should pop out the bearing and examine the bottom of the hubs bore for any imperfection . If you have managed to get it in that far then it's not on the skew mate, you would never get a bearing to press in that far if it was not going into the bore nice n square.

    There's either some burr in the hub bore or it's not bored deep enough to let the bearing all the way in.
    I run two degree hubs with the HD bearings and can recall they were tight to get in. I think I pressed mine in using the vice.

    Have you tried fitting the other Hex and pin onto this dodgy hub ?

    See even if you do get it in it's still gunna be a pain to remove.

    Garry mate you made my day.Today i did as u told me,without heating the hub and it works perfectly.To everyone ho uses the hostile hubs and having problem,use this method.DO NOT buy the special tool from hostile,its another way to make money for them and their customer service is crap.After they made a fool out of my i decided not to reply to them,as they not worthet.THX Garry,you are a star.I just instaled the inner bearing wich goes easy inside,installed the outer bearing,installed the outter bearing on the drive cup and then inserted the cup in the hub an it lined perfectly.So thats the conclusion,don't need special tool as the hostile people said.

    I asume the outside bearing was not properly seated.But the hostile people could have just told me to line the bearings using the cup.Instead they said that i have no mechanical skills and i need the special tool

    Can anyone please confirm the sizes of the 'big bearings' in the Hostile Hubs?
    One of mine is on it's way out and I can't seem to find confirmation anywhere, I know they are obviously 28mm diameter, but how thick they are, 4, 6 or 8?
    Not looking forward to trying to swap them though, with an oven that gets about as hot as a fart and no bearing press

    Thanks mate, that explains why I couldn't find anything for 12x28x6 lol, assumed 8mm was a bit too thick.
