Default Rear Wheel Hubs & Bearings in UK?

After combing the internet looking for rear wheel hubs and bearings in the UK, I've come up pretty much empty on the hubs, and a number of places suggest that if you're changing one you should change both hubs and bearings at the same time.

Tegiwa have these wheel bearings in stock, marked as OEM, but no hubs.

Hendy have the hubs in stock but at an eye-watering £212 each, so I'm looking for alternatives....

I found this set of NSK bearings and hubs on ebay for about £160 all-in. Has anyone else done a replacement recently or otherwise of decent replacements? The Dorman hubs seem to be reasonable according to some posts, but again would require shipping in from the US - the total cost for the pair and shipping would be £92, mind.

Last winter I purchased the Dorman rear hubs and Timken bearings from Amazon usa. Very high quality IMO, the price of OEM is ridiculous
They arrived in less than a week. Perfect fitment and function. I managed to buy the hubs, bearings and my own 15 ton press for less than buying all from Honda

Didn't know Rockauto did beatings, admittedly not my thing but whats the safe word; spurious?

Back OT ya Rockauto are great, just mind that certain parts might be in different warehouses and have an extra delivery charge.

If you still want to stay OEM, try Amayama.com (or honda-epc.com, it's the front page for the parts catalog), the hub it's about 100 dollars each and the bearing like 60$, altough the OE bearings are either Timken or NTN and there's no need to have a Honda bag and sticker for getting those.

Even with customs taxes and shipping, remains cheaper. We're heavily abused by Honda Europe .
