That's because you incline the vehicle when you turn, so there's little axial load on the bearings.

If your design leads to bearing problems, there are solutions, such as bearings wider than the wheels, or a 30kmi wheel bearing replacement interval. Or by inclining the vehicle when you turn: General Motors (GM)
