    My car has done well over 50k without hub caps, and only now has a bearing failed

    I think this makes them optional

    If they are the original bearings (and assuming the caps were lost during disc replacement). You know the car's history though.

    But desirable - are they obtainable new?

    Yes, for a not unreasonable £2.50 (plus p&p)

    Cheers - but my missing two turned up the following day.

    Definitely they should be fitted - a warm hub will pull in moisture when a puddle is encountered (as the hub cools).
