Would using a "freeze" process on the bearing/hub/knuckle work?

Maybe: (1) Freeze the hub and heat the bearing. Slide the 2 together. (2) freeze the hub and bearing as a solid unit then slid into the heated knuckle.

I tried this on my old Porsche and had the bearing in in 5 seconds. Slid right on the hub with a little Vaseline. Refroze and into the knuckle it went.

Just a thought but not sure on a X5.
