Greased or soaked in oil?

The felt will wick some oil from grease in the bearing to lubricate itself. Doesn't need any help. Install it dry. They don't wear much at all.
There is no cure for Lotus, only treatment.

Hi Graeme,
I oil mine. Not too much though. If over oiled, the oil will drip out onto the inner tyre.
Cheers,
Colin.
