I installed them on my boat trailer this year, they replaced oil bath hubs.
For whatever reason they run cooler.
I just went out and pulled the caps. One of the hubs has a tiny bit of water in it and shows some rust on the end of the spindle. I'll inspect deeper later. The hubs were cool when I launched the boat.
I didn't find out about air pressurized hub systems till after I bought these. Kinda wish I had gone that direction.
They are probably fine for dry applications.
