EZ Lube with Mag wheels

Has anyone used the ez-lube axles with mag wheels? Do you have to remove the wheel or does the cap in the middle pop off? Donít want to have to say dang, I shouldnít have done that while holding broken pieces in my hand. It would be nice to not have to remove the wheels to grease the bearings.

If you have something like these for your center caps, it's not a problem. The center cap pops off allowing access to the ezlube grease fitting.

Take the lug nuts off and the center cap is loose in the wheel center and slips right out of the wheel center hole. Don’t forget to put it back in the center hole before you remount the tire and wheel and don’t ask how I would know to remind you.

Thatís what the cap looks like. Can you just pop that piece off the end of the cap without it breaking to grease the bearings? It look like itís meant for that.

The cap is made of aluminum and the end piece is plastic, snaps on/off with a penknife. I had to buy an extra one when I dented the original going over a curb.....
