I use grease. these are not sealed bearing assemblies, and aftermarket oil bath type systems are not legal.
I use and recommend Kluber grease, but it is NOT cheap. Obviously there are hundreds of other greases to choose from out there.

Here is a link if you're interested in Kluber: http://www.vmsmotorsports.com/apps/webstore/products/show/4645078

I use Valvoline synthetic bearing grease.
Reasonably priced and available at most auto parts stores.

 Whatever ya go with, make sure it is a high temp grease for disc brakes. I realize there are a ton of newbs out there that weren't around when regular wheel bearing grease was used back in the day before disc brakes existed.. if ya dig hard enough through the internet you might find a nifty front wheel bearing trick. I might have missed deleting that post along the way...

We use polished bearings from New England Gear Polishing. And Daylube grease.
Don't pack the bearings, just use injector to lube in between the rollers.

I've also used stock bearings and Microlon wheel bearing grease. But NEGP bearings work better.
