What would be the pro/con to obtaining aftermarket wheel bearings? Also, what would a dealer charge, as far as labor hours, to replace each?

Aftermarket brands are fine as long as it's one of the major brands like Timkin or BCA. The flat rate time is 1.5 houirs per side. They are pressed in.

Ever hear of a brand called PartsMaster? What's your take on them if you have?

Do the bearings differ between ABS and non-ABS models? Most websites don't differ, but a few asked to specify.

The ABS shouldn't matter.

Partsmaster is a private brand sold as a low cost substitute. Compare it with the store brands of a supermarket. It may have been made by the majors but you'll never know.
