Default which wheel bearing grease ?

I think my WRX front wheel bearings are going, so I have new ones ready to put in.

It's been tracked a lot, so I don't want to try my luck taking it to a dealer. Got the bearings free with subarubucks anyway.
I run stock rotors with carbotech P+ pads. Last time out, I noticed some grease streaks on my front wheels coming out from the hub face, so I'm pretty sure the grease is getting really hot. And I was getting some ugly noises taking corners after everything was warmed up.

My question is what sort of grease should I try repacking the new bearings with. I've searched around and found some stuff good to 800 degrees F.
Neo hp800
Anyone tried that or know if it's any good.

Or any other suggestions for a good high temp wheel bearing grease?

Thanks,

Jason

I have run Redline CV2 in all my driveshafts and bearings for 4 years and it works great. Just did four wheel bearings in my buddies '98 RS and used it. He only got 80,000 miles on all four bearings, and some had been replaced not long ago.

Gary Sheehan has recommended Krytox grease for wheel bearings in race use, I'm sure it'd be good for the street, but spendy..."The Stoptech brakes and using Krytox grease has increased our bearing life to over 2 full race weekends. Note the grease alone is $140/lb."

Thanks for the replies. I actually picked up some of the redline grease earlier this week and I'll try that. Got that local, and
quite a bit cheaper than the others.
