    We have been using it at work for a while now, and I'm going to try it out on my wheel bearings as I've used up my last tube of complex-lithium.

    I would stick with whats tried and true. But to be honest dont know what your planning to use or its application. If its good for berrings under high temp , then you could try it. Thats up to you. Me , i would rather use somthing thats proven. I would stick to red and tacky personally, but i do not know what the technical name of it is.

    I would look and see if the grease you are considering is on Dexter's approved list....That is what I did with my last TT repack.

    Dexter recommends complex lithium (which is what Red N Tacky is). But modern calcium sulfonate outperform complex lithium greases in nearly every way.
