Hub's & Tire Temp's

Hey guys new to the foum and didn't know it exsited until a recent web search about tire failures. Wish I had, just questions only a Forest River Owner would know!!! Question I have a Wildcat 35 foot triple side, 12,115 GVW. It scales out at 11,400 lbs with about 2,400 of that on the king pin. I have a temp gun and watch my tire and hub temps as I travel. Front tires on the trailer run around 98 to 100 degrees, rear axle tires at 109 to 112. My hubs stay a between 95 to 108 degrees, but when I went to pack them this spring the entire wheel bearing set is sealed with the races. No carter key just a big nylon lock nut. Checked FR web page and found tork settings for these nuts to be between 180 to 200 ft-lbs. Any one else seen these on a trailer and if so had any problems?
