Tire and Axle Differences Between The Yakima Rack and Roll and Easy Rider Trailers

Question:

Can you please tell me if these tires are tubeless, and dont require inner tubes like the Rack and Roll? Are the hubs sealed/non replaceable like the Rack and Roll or can they be greased and replaced? If the can be greased could Bearing Buddys be fit?

I checked with Yakima who confirmed the tires on the Easy Rider Trailer # Y08129 are tubeless and do not require inner tubes like the Rack and Roll # Y08107. Both the Rack and Roll and Easy Rider trailer axles should be greased before installation as part of maintenance but have sealed bearings so would not be a fit for the Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors # BB1980A.

A third option worth considering is the Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G that also has tubeless tires like the Easy Rider and would be a fit for the Bearing Buddies. It has a 1.98" hub bore so the correct Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors are parts # BB1980A for Chrome Plated and # BB1980A-SS for Stainless Steel.
