Yes, those RS-80s are absolutely fantastic wheels for the price. I swapped out the steel bearings for ceramic for about $70, and they rolled like a greased pig on butter.

Actually I saw them somewhere for about $20! I'm definitely going to upgrade the bearings soon.

Good deal! I went through Boca Bearings and they had them labeled specifically for the wheels (balls are different sized front/rear).

Sorry they were $30. They're on eBay but they ship out of California, which makes me feel better about it.

Looks good. I would go for it.....fun little project if you have the right supplies, i.e. cone wrenches, degreaser (I used brake cleaner spray) and new grease (I used Phil Wood).
