Just from what I have noticed...I have a bunch of spare Acers that I give to peeps when they blow out one of the other bearings...

You must have had a much better experience than I did with the other brand... I did however find one good use for them. Apparently the chipmunk that wonders my back yard has taken a liking to anal beads. I removed all the sheilds, extracted the balls and made him a set from a fine set of useless TC bearings.

What's the best way to clean these bearings? I've tried that new cleaner at Lowe's Crud Cleaner. It works well but leaves a sticky residue on it. I'm scared I ruined them.

Peter Toft will one day come back and recreate a better place for all the pot heads to race.

PEACE

there's a lot that you could choose from but IMO there's only 2, ACER and BOCA bearings

As with all bearings if you don't take care of them you can have problems. If you hit something hard enough you can break Ceramic bearings..just something to remember. Most of the metal shielded Ceramic bearings come from the same factory, they have the same rating, So how is one bearing better than another? If you guys want to pay $120 for basically the same bearing that I can get for $85 a set..go for it. Boca does sell some very high end Ceramic Bearings that would be a cut above the metal shielded, metal race bearings that most of us are getting. But the Boca's are not cheap, $300 for a set.. I'm not even sure if they carry them anymore.

Acer Ceramic seals are not rubber, they are plastic. Once broken in, they seal perfectly and barley ever need cleaning and provide less rolling resistance than metal sheilds. With the 10 or so ceramic set's of theirs I've owned over the years I've never had a problem replacing the sheils once they were removed but then again since they seal better than metal they almost never need to be removed.

I do not understand how you could say for TC the bearings are useless. You should have a better understanding of a product before you spread bad information like that!

Thanks for all the responses guys it looks as if the choice is between BOCA and ACER. I guess it depends if you want plastic seals or metal shields on the bearings as which to go for ... hmm I guess I have a decision to make

i have an acer set... but never tried BOCA... and my opinion is after trying acer... i would like to see if there is something better... acer is good.. but i personally don't like the shields... sometimes they jam my bearings... u have to becareful u don't damage the shields... maybe my hands are not good...

if i am getting a evo v i am definately not going acer again.
