Tires and Wheels problem
2003 Suzuki Aerio 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 14000 miles

I have been told that my front left wheel bearing needs to be replaced. Can you just replace the wheel bearing or do you need to replace the whole wheel hub assembly? Also, would this problem cause excessively tire wear on the rear of the car?

Front wheel bearing would not cause a rear tire uneven wear?.

By rotating wheel actually, check wheel bearing for noise and smooth rotation.
If defective, replace bearing.

Better check the rotation of the Wheel Hub Assembly, looks like this has been the problem. If not better replace it.
