Even debris, especially loose ball bearings will put me on a two piece wheel or risk shattering the ceramics that I love so much. It's a delicate balance for sure.
Oh i just mean for keeping a prime spacer width needed, since temp change can augment the width of our skate components.

Unless your slamming your feet down I wouldn't see a ceramic breaking. What typically kills them is usually skateboarding and their small diameter crazy hard 101A wheels as they smash across sidewalk cracks.

So how do you clean the 8 balls since they use grease not oil?

well one of 2 ways.

first clean the existing dirty grease out with a solvent.

then choose either you want to use grease or Oil.

i would prefer oil for future cleanings, its easier to apply and easier to clean.

i personally never was a huge grease person when it came to bearings

the 2 ways was either choosing grease or oil

Put them in my skates a while back and have noticed having to put on the brakes more. Haven't cleaned yet but it will be soon.

Default 8-ball bearings.

Am loving these bearings for slalom and artistic skating. They handle weight really well when loaded on one wheel and won't bind as much as other. Have been skating weekly on these for almost 12 months. They seem to hold up well and are easy to clean. My old ILQ9 6-balls always made cracking noises when loaded on one wheel on an edge, so thought to try these out. They take time to wear in and seem to need relubrication more often, but worth the trouble. I run these on inline skates with rockered frame. They are a tad noisy and don't freespin as well as bearings with less wheels, but definitely have a place for hard-edged activities.
