I've had my Daytons for 5 or 6 years with the hubs never sealed and no
grease has come out the spoke holes.

Have always used a light smear of Lubriplate or wheel bearing grease on the
splines and knockoff threads only.

Am wondering if some folks are using gobs of grease where a smear will do.
Also wondering if lotsa grease is necessary to keep salt out in inclement

Enquiring minds want to know.
