DETROIT MUSCLE

All-American racing with extreme load capacity, the best design for V8 muscle.

KING'S TECHLAB - EXCEED AND EXCEL

TechLab is our starting point for exploring and developing new technologies. It’s where our new products and features are designed, tested and validated.

Our TechLab R&D culture focuses on constant analysis of what can be done to support ever increasing race engine loads, and how to improve bearing durability.

One of those technologies is pMax-Black™.

pMaxBlack™ combines a unique tri-metal structure with advanced surface processes to deliver superior load capacity.

ALL-AMERICAN ENDURANCE

King Racing – Best design for V8 muscle.

Race engines competing in the top levels of motorsports need to be built with the highest quality parts. These engines will require engine bearings that can withstand very high loads, minimal oil film thicknesses and occasional boundary lubrication.

King Racing has developed the materials, structures and geometries that enable GPC, HP, TFC, XP, & XPC series rod and main bearings to outperform the competition mile after mile, all the way to the checkered flag.

From the dedicated tuner working in their garage to the professional racer on the track, our bearings are built to deliver the precision and durability needed to get the most out of your engine.

FEATURED MUSCLE BEARINGS

SUPERIOR BY DESIGN

Crafted with advanced materials and cutting-edge manufacturing technology, King Engine Bearings provide superior load resistance, enhanced wear protection, and unparalleled durability. Trust our bearings to keep your American V8 roaring with unmatched power and precision.

From the classic roar of a Big Block Chevy to the thunderous performance of an LS, King Bearings deliver the support your V8 engine needs to achieve its maximum potential. Our commitment to excellence ensures you get the best bearings designed specifically for high-performance Detroit Muscle cars.

Experience the King difference today – because your engine deserves nothing but the best.
