Depends what you normally use for chain lubricant?

O-ring chain is often wider than standard chain.

O-ring chain still needs lubricating.

Q: If an O-ring chain lube doesn't need to get lubricant past the O-rings and inside the chain, what does it do for the chain then?

A: It keeps the chain from rusting, it lubricates the O-ring itself and it does provide some cushion effect between the chain roller and the sprocket, which reduces wear on the sprockets and increases the chain's life.
