I also have other wheel steering post and engine bearings on it's way. These sound like top notch stuff and there stuff deff doesn't break the bank at 65 cents for wheel n 2$ for each clutch bearing they also make some clutch bearings that r 65 cents a piece.

on ceramic bearings the steel races wear out just as much as steel ball bearings.

so no i would suspect that they would last the same amount of time

Boca makes both steel and ceramics that are sealed for life, contact seal bearings. wonder if they last longer?
