Default Wheel Bearing part number?

Anyone got an -8 wheel bearing handy that they can read me the part number? I'm changing tires, and I'll change out the bearings while I have the wheels off.

Called Vans, but the parts girl said they don't sell them separate (gave me a quote on a whole wheel assembly). She eventually found me a Napco (Neapco?) part number that made no sense as it was all letters and 2 numbers. Google search came up dry.

I'd like to have these in hand before I take the wheels off.

TIA

A quick google search found this..take it for what it’s worth..

“I don't have my '91 era RV-4 wheel p/n handy, but for it, the following info is what I have.

The 'stock' tapered bearing set for Clevelands are 'precision' bearings. They are fairly pricey. From an old Matronics RV-list post:

I don't know whose P/Ns those are (maybe Van's), but from the Parker
Cleveland Parts List, I show the Cone Bearing as Cleveland P/N 214-00400 and the
Race (Cup) as Cleveland P/N 214-00300.

Some of us have found that in our personal experience, the following 'less precision' bearings fit the axle/wheel, and have given hundreds of hours of good service (links are to NAPA part #s, but they are Timken bearings):
https://www.napaonline.com/en/p/BRGBR08231
https://www.napaonline.com/en/p/BRGBR08125

The Timken #s are 08125 & 08231. You need two sets for each wheel.

You must make your own decision on whether to pay the premium for the higher precision versions (if you order the Cleveland p/n, you'll likely get Timken bearings; just the higher precision tolerance versions).”

For 5" Cleveland wheel I think the number is 08125 for bearing and 08231 for the race. Inner and outer are the same. The bearings are very expensive.

Experimental… go to Napa or even Amazon. Summit shows $20 for the bearing and $10 for the race.

For the archives here they are: https://cad.timken.com/item/tapered-...-2/08125-08231

Guy who gets my race car bearings sold me the set of 4 for $80. Non-TSO version goes for $25 on Amazon.

Thanks guys!
