        Comments about 1.98" Stainless Steel Bearing Buddy, pair:

        PLEASE PLEASE UNDERSTAND WHAT A BUDDY BEARING DOES AND WHAT IT DOESN'T DO.
        DO: KEEPS WATER OUT OF YOUR WHEEL BEARINGS.
        DON'T: PROVIDES GREASE TO YOUR WHEEL BEARINGS. THE GREASE YOU PUT INTO THE BUDDY BEARING IS WHAT KEEPS THE WATER OUT PERIOD, NOTHING MORE NOTHING LESS!!

        WHEN IT'S TIME TO REDO YOUR WHEELS BEARINGS JUST BUY THE THE NEW HUB, BOTH BEARINGS(ALREADY PACKED WITH GREASE OR YOU HAVE TO PACK THEM YOURSELF) AND THE GREASE SEAL. utube has all this info to make it easy to see how this process is done. YOU CAN FINE THE WHOLE HUB KIT INCLUDING THE BUDDY BEARINGS OVER THE INTERNET. COST ME LESS THAN $65.00 PER HUB FOR A 2500LB TRAILER.

            Do you feel lucky....? In 32 years as a professional trucker, I've seen far too many boat trailers lose wheels going down the road. This can be prevented by keeping grease IN the hubs and water OUT. Bearing Buddies are the answer. They provide cheap insurance and peace of mind.

                What can I say? Measure your inner hub diameter with a caliper, order the coresponding sized part, tap in the bearing buddy with a hammer and wood block, fill it with grease, and forget about it! The only way they can make this process easier is to send along someone to install it for you!!
                Great product, great price, great process of installation.
