Skate Rated clearances, tolerances, materials and lubricant provide the best performance and durability possible.

Do you need 7mm or 8mm bearings? The choice for one or the other is dependent on the size of your axle. Wheels play no part in this decision, as both will fit into any roller skate wheel. The two sizes refer to the inner diameter of the bearing and the size of the axle it’s going on.

Most modern plates call for an 8mm bearing, but this can vary by manufacturer. Artistic skating plates, Roll Line plates, and older models generally use 7mm bearings. Riedell and Sure Grip plates, such as the Revenge, Reactor, Triton, and Probe all use 8mm bearings.

If you don't know your bearing size, there are several ways to check. Pull a wheel and check your current bearings. They should be stamped "627” for 7mm or "608" for 8mm. If you can't tell, call or email us with your skate specifications and we will help you figure it out.
