I didn't know what to expect and certainly didn't expect my wheel to fall off, I'm no mechanic. If I knew that it was my wheel bearing and that It was burnt to a crisp I wouldn't of drove it. I was just curious as to why it was burnt to a crisp, the guy who came and picked my car up said that's an unusual thing which is why I posted on here.
