Default Squeaky wheels on larger airplanes

When I flew in my first IMAC competition this summer I noticed that a lot of the larger planes have squeaky wheels.

What's the cause? Is there a solution?

The larger planes are bigger and heavier, puts more stress on the plastic wheel collars....and lack of oil and grease. My 30% have squeaky wheels also.

Heavy airplanes on a non bearing axle. resist the urge to lubricate, the braking effect is very useful.
