    My caster has 608rs/c3 on it. How would I translate this into size?

    608 is the size (8x22x7mm). RS means rubberized seal on one side. I don't know what the c3 means.

    yes. Any 608 will fit. Beyond the size, it's personal preference. The vxb bearings you linked should serve you well for a long time if you periodically maintain (clean and relube) them.

    Note: your vxb link mentions c3 as a radial clearance - I don't know what that is.

    I concur with totoL1, that is not too bad; I have had worse new. If you can afford it, consider Bones bearings over the VXB's; I purchased the VXB's and it would seem they are not big on pre-lubing them, another member had the same issue, where the seize up in less than a month due to being dry. Obviously you can lubricate the VXB before you install them, and I would if you go that route.

    PS: I run Bones Super Reds lubed with Bones Speed Cream, and am quite happy with them.

    I purchased some Bones Speed Cream as you suggested, but haven't tried it yet. I'd be very curious of a compare between your Super Reds and the Ceramic Super Reds.

    So would I. Since my Super Reds work just fine though, I hesitate to invest in ceramics. On skates I could imagine the difference would be noticeable because they turn so much faster - not so much on my chair (I don't descend hills like toto1. . .).

    R6 = 3/8" x 7/8" x 9/32" (IDxODxThickness)
