I have a few questions. First we have a 2009 3055rl. What kind of grease should you use on the bearings? It has the bearing buddies like boats have. Second we have the chrome wheels. Are the lug nuts chrome or are there chrome caps on them? If they are caps, how do they come off?

Go to the parts store and buy a good grade of wheel bearing and hand pack your bearings and forget the bearing buddys that way you won't push grease through the seals onto the brakes. The lug nuts should be a 3/4 socket. JON :D

I would also replace the seals with a good double lip seal and get rid of the cheap china seals. Don't forget to adjust the brakes. JON :D :D :D
