I'm probably going to start something........
Todays cars for the most part have sealed wheel bearings that you can not grease. The are replaced when they start to go bad usually part of the CV joint. Older rear wheel drive cars you greased (repacked) more often...
Quality wheel bearings do last longer but guess where most of todays bearings are made. More maintenance helps. Plus trailer bearings are not necessarly the same quality (not the word I am looking for) (rated service) Trailer hubs are more cheaply made. Smaller...........

I repack mine every year cheap insurance. As someone else said it is a good time to check the brakes and tires as you have them off. I also carry one set of bearings with me when I am on the road. Once again cheap insurance and will save me a lot of "vacation" time and money if it happened, compared to finding someone to fix them, I am all about making sure my trips are as worry free as possible.
