I have an 06 Kia Picanto. It needs a new front bearing and hub. I’m trying to save some money but am completely over whelmed by the choice of makes. The car is used by my daughters so I want something that will do a good job but I think the cars life is limited as has over 112k on the clock. Can anyone recommend any makes or ones to avoid. Thanks

German made should be ok, French too. Many cardboard boxes with various brand names contain the same product anyway.
prices for the same product vary a lot so what is cheap near me may not be cheap near you.
mapco is german and reasonably priced also febi, skf, swag. among others. I would avoid the no name brands on ebay.

Why does the hub require replacement?

Thanks for the suggestions. Are there any sites you would recommend or is it a question of just finding one? I have had trouble finding a front hub, lots of rear ones! The hub is bent 😕
