Looking to do the wheel bearings on my MY99 Boxster. Pelican carries both SKF and FAG brands, with the latter at less than half the price. Does anyone have any opinions on which is the best choice?

Looks like FAG bearings are very dependable and comparable to the SKF. Any other opinions/experiences?
... are the big 3 and all have comparable products.
Happy Porscheing

my LCDs -- is a FAG. It lasted around 90K miles. I do not know what the replacement bearing was but the other 3 bearings assuming they are FAG have lasted 270K miles. I'd say FAG and hang the few extra bucks.
