I have a 2010 Honda rancher es 2x4. It has 7000 miles but I have taken good care of it. At about 5500 miles the hub went out so I got one from the salvage yard and replaced it. Now I think both hubs are going out. I can tighten them and they will quit for 100 miles but then start again. Should I get 2 new hubs or will I need to fix something else on it? Also I'm still using original tires but they're wore out now

Pull the hubs and have a look at the axle splines, you should have nice square edges on the splines, if they are sharp and narrow its about time to replace the axle.

buy two new hubs if you do that as well. ebay has good prices on aftermarket axle and hub combos that I have had good luck with in the past.

however, if you have good axle splines, just get new hubs and put a generous helping of molly grease on them and torque em down and forget about it.
