Bearings and Seals
Wheel bearings, which are sets of steel balls held together in a metal ring called a race, support the wheels and help them spin without friction. Wheel bearings are tough parts, but they can be damaged through wear and tear, though this damage does not generally happen unless the seal around the bearings is somehow damaged. A damaged seal lets in water and debris, which mixes with the jelly-type substance surrounding the ball bearings, introducing friction and providing a mechanism by which the ball bearings can be damaged. Bearings my come individually or as a sealed set, which can impact what you need to do to fix the problem; the two main options are to repack the existing bearings or replace them.
