Rhino Wheel Bearings

I am having a hard time finding wheel bearings that will last. Is stock the only replacement that will last? I have put a set of Moose (All Balls) or whatever sticker they happen to repackage them in and it already feels like its coming loose.

Just wondering what everyone else does.

Thanks

mud and water and stuff make them wear out faster, wonder what the guys in Pismo use?

Thats a bad ass set up, but the extra weight has got to take a toll on bearings.

i use lighter weight rims, so I never really have bearing's going out, and i ride sand more than water and mud.

Give it a few days, someone will come on with good advice i am sure.

Grease

Hey guys I am running 27" mud dogs on my Rhino and find that it is hard on bearings. I have about 4000 km's on it and I am changing the front for the second time and I need to do the back. The first time I did the front I used all balls kits. I just change the right front again but this time I took the time to drill and tap a hole in the bearing housing at the front on the inside so that I could put a grease fitting. It seems to work great. I know that technically you shouldn't over pack a bearing because they will heat up but getting out the dirt and water will probably make them last longer. I will be putting on my tracks for the winter soon. I am sure they put a little more pressure on the bearing too.
