Go ahead and reuse them. You'll notice no difference. I reuse the same set over and over and over...

The only thing I would recommend is marking the inserts front to rear & left to right. The inserts do break down and can cause a tweak feel.

If you use different inserts, mark the insert type on the wheels so you know what is on the wheels. Then mark the new wheels before you pull the inserts off the old wheels. You now know what you are using. I reuse inserts all the time.

Patrick the first response to your post also reuses them and he is a top level racer.
