    I'm currently using red'n tacky from Lucas. What do you guys reccomend for a good wheel bearing grease? I've been thinking about using Lucas' Xduty grease.

    I use Redline CV Joint Grease. I have not had any bearing issues since I started using it. I did have problems b4 with several different greases. The worst was with boat trailer wheel bearing grease.

    My friend used wheel bearing for trailer on his ramcharger and it overheated and the inner wheelbearing got so hot it seized onto the spindle. He had to take a grinder and go right through the hub. So lesson learned, used grease that is made for disc/drum brake use!

    The grease praised by the porsche club down in SA is made by swepco. I used it on my old 944 CV's, wheel bearings, pretty much anything needing lube. It is great stuff. A friend from the Porsche club drives 18-wheelers and races a 911 in the SCCA. He swears by swepco lube and motor oil, which he purchases for his big rig and for his race cars. I don't know if any of the vendors sell it, but the place I used to buy it is called Paragon Products.

    I have a weirdo german can of lube (i think it's a gallon of it) -- my friend gave me it, no idea what it's called since it's written in german. but it's high temp, and never comes off of anything. I don't know if that's good or bad, but i've never had problems with it. I'll try to get the name of it later on.
