The width at the bearing is a little narrower than the stock wheels, so to get a tight fit and avoid the bearing race from spinning on the shaft, I used hose washers against the bearing to take up the space and hold the inner bearing race in place. Used existing flat washers to bring it to a tight fit against the cotter pin. Result is much quieter operation, no annoying rattle when hitting bumps, a solid feel.
I expect the only thing that will lead to the demise of these wheels is getting hit by a forklift.
