Default stainless= no rust?

I was looking at puting these in my stampede, it says stainless so they shouldn't rust, right?

It will depend on the quality of the stainless. There are different grades that have different characteristics.

Keep your vehicle out of mud and water and shouldn't matter....

You could look into ceramic bearings from Acer or Boca.. and there are others from China as well... they won't rust the ball bearings.. the outside may still rust though... but you still shouldn't get them wet...

shouldn't rust? It will only STAIN LESS then regular steel but will hold up a lot longer. Most of the time it will only have surface oxidation that can usually be cleaned off.
