Wheel hub with screwed in bearing

Steel wheel bearings are usually screwed onto aluminum chassis components. Hirschvogel proposes to equip the bearing ring with an external thread, so that it can be screwed into a steering knuckle or wheel-carrier part with internal thread. This leads to weight reduction, a lower number of parts and less assembly effort.
