Wheel Bearings

I have just been going over my Austin Ten with a view to safety checking.  The OS front wheel spins silently and freely.  When I spin the NS front wheel it spins freely but with a bit of a "rumble", though if I try to rock the wheel either horizontally or vertically it feels firm, there is no movement of the hub on the stub axle.

Is this something that can safely be left, is it something which needs to be dealt with reasonably soon, or ought the bearings to be replaced immediately?

Thank you.

Re: Wheel Bearings

If you have the correct hub puller remove the hub and grease the bearings to see if that stops the rumbling. If not bearings are cheap and easy to fit. I use sealed bearings.
