2010 America. Just fitted new front wheel bearings at 24,000 miles. On the front Mag wheel, opposite to the brake disc there are vent holes that are open to inside of the bearings, allowing water to run down inside the spindle and onto the bearings. I've now taped over the vent holes on the wheel. Bad design

I have wondered about those slots. Looking in, there is a lot of open area to be seen. Didn't know about the bearings being exposed to the environment through there. Thanks for the info.
