Can a bearing be press inside a wheel hub

Bought 2 bearings from a member that told me that they were front bearings. They are not, they are rear bearings.
The member now mention to me that the bearing can be press into the existing from hub.

Does that makes sense to you?
From what I found so far, it's not possible.

I would need to know if it's do-able or if I have to resend him the stuff and get reimbursed.

thanks

Buy the correct front bearings and hold onto the ones for the rear cause you'll have to do them eventually, if you got them for a good price

It's not, the front hub/bearing/abs ring are 1pc. That member is misinformed.

New after market front wheel bearings are around 180ish plus tax...my beater needs one or both
