Wheel bearing Grease

Can I get some opinions on the brand/type of bearing grease that is best used in a Heritage Glen TT with Dexter Easy lube hubs? Prefer grease gun tube.

I used Mobil 1, got a tube for my gun and a cannister to repack the bearings. Good stuff, exceeds the manufacturer's requirements.

If it's never been torn down and still factory dexter grease then you will need a lithium complex grease as this is what dexter uses. All info can be found on their website.

Lucas Red ‘n Tacky #2 is a good lithium complex grease. Available at Walmart for five bucks a tube.

X2 on the Mobil 1, but there is a list of approved lubes in the Dexter manual.

I didn’t know WD40 made grease but the specs on their extreme pressure grease look pretty good. Good reviews on Amazon. Also lithium complex base.

Any kind of axle grease - lithium is probably best.

I’m no expert by any means, but I have read that you should not mix different grease types. If Dexter used a lithium complex grease in your axles at the factory, then you should use a lithium complex grease, unless you clean all old grease out before repacking with a different grease.

X3. Use it on my Sidewinder hitch also. Great stuff, especially in our heat.
