I paid $38 USD for 5 SKF's. Why 5? Because they apparently come packaged in bundles of 5 and I could buy 5 for less than I could find 4 selling for.

I partly went with bearings from HD as there are a LOT of counterfeit SKF's out there and a wheel bearing failure can be catastrophic at speed...
(I do realize that authentic SKF's are very high quality)

Do you have a source to support that claim? Being that the 9276 bearings have been revised twice that may not be the case.

You normally get part # changes (supercedes) when there's a design or spec change, not a supplier change.
