    Major design problem

      Comments about Tie Down Engineering Tie Down Vortex Trailer Hub Kits, 5-Stud 1-1/16" - 1-3/8":

      Clever design with grease fitting built into the hub so they work like Super Lube axles. Vortex sells these as their "premium" hubs so I was disappointed to find the bearings and seals are made in China. Biggest problem is that the grease caps are proprietary (they screw on and have an O-ring) so if you loose one or one is damaged you must replace it with a Vortex cap and because of that I would not recommend these unless you can buy a spare set of caps with the new hubs. Overton's does not carry the caps and I haven't yet been able to find anyone on the web that does carry them. After putting on the new hubs - which is very easy - I discovered the grease caps are larger diameter than the hubs and the wheels will not go over them. This necessitates removal of the caps to change a flat. The caps screw on, unlike conventional caps, so you will need a tool to remove them. Be sure to add that tool to the tools you carry to change a flat!

      No advantage over bearing buddy

      Comments about Tie Down Engineering Tie Down Vortex Trailer Hub Kits, 5-Stud 1-1/16" - 1-3/8":

      - the studs are not stainless, so this not intended for marine use
      - the grease fitting is not easily accessible
      - according to my trailer mechanic, there is no advantage over traditional bearing buddies.
