While I understand it isn't very fun, the only way to determine the correct bearings is to take apart your hub. You will either be able to see the bearing numbers directly on the bearings when you wipe away the grease, or you will need to use Digital Caliper # 301-17068 and measure your spindle to the thousandths of an inch where the bearing rides on the spindle.

I have added a link to our selection of bearings for you to come back to, and when packing them you will want to use Prime Guard Wheel Bearing Hi-Temp Red Grease # L11380.

For a bearing packer you can use LubriMatic Deluxe Bearing Packer # L70025 or Powerbuilt Deluxe Bearing Packer # ALL647646.
