Maybe I'm old fashioned but I don't believe in " lifetime" lubrication of anything in the automotive industry. It certainly is time consuming to do it and it may be expensive to have someone else do it but I vote for standard bearings and periodic inspection and
re-packing. It requires that you remove the drums so you get to inspect your brakes while at it. To me that is the BIG PLUS. Whether you do it every year, every 10,000 miles or at a longer interval the important thing is that you DO IT. AND another plus is I can replace a failed wheel bearing on the side of the road or at a campsite in a pinch. You can't do that with a sealed unit.
See ya'll on the road sometime. Hopefully not with a bad bearing.
