Wheel bearings😞

I am 160 miles out of Houston heading to Austin. The rear wheel bearings seem to be toast. Has anyone tried riding with seemingly bad bearings?

Don't do it. Worst case you can weld the bearing to your axle/have the wheel lock up.

I got very lucky. My bearings were shot to , and I didn't find it until I got new tires. Scared the out of me that they were in that bad of a condition. It was one of the few times I let a shop handle a maintenance item (shop found the problem while doing a tire change).

I couldn't miss mine. The back end felt really loose so pulled over expecting to see a flat... I wish it was a flat...
