Should I just run the oem hubs all around or is there any recommendations for an upgrade ?

Yeah just a stock 2g and I think my wheel bearing is out and I thought that if the wheel bearing is out I’d just have to buy the hub and wheel bearing all in one regardless I wanted to replace the hub I just want to refresh as much as I Can suspension and wheel wise . I just didn’t know if there any products out there that exceed oem performanceI don't really know of any upgraded hubs beyond the DSS ones designed for crazy upgraded half shafts, but what are you trying to achieve here? Please provide more info. Are you just a stock 2g with a failed wheel bearing? High HP build that keeps burning through driveline components?
I was going to buy moog hubs and replacing all of them at once but now I’m kinda second guessing it so you think I’m better off just take out the bearings themselves and pressing new ones on ?I learned the hard way and I would advise you to KEEP your OEM hubs and just swap the bearings over. This however requires you to hammer them out and use a press, as well as cutting off the old stuck-on bearing race.
The problem with many aftermarket bearing+hub kits is that the hubs are ever so slightly oversized on the central outer diameter where the wheel centers on. So in my case when I changed my front left bearing for a hub+bearing set, both my Enkeis and Stealth wheels (all matching OEM centerbores) got disformed because essentially they were going over a slightly bigger center ring.
So now what I do is I just buy the bearing only and swap over the OEM hubs which are better quality anyway.
