I recently dropped a lot of weight and thought I'd get back into skating to keep it off. After I dug out my ancient rollerblades I saw that I'd done a good job of wearing off the edges of the wheels, and I wasn't sure how a 7 year hiatus would affect the bearings. After checking the wheel sizing these were a good general purpose replacement size for your garden variety adult rollerblades. The abec-5 bearings are better than the cheap ones in the cheap skates, but not as slick as the abec-9's, but I'm just an old guy skating on asphalt, so I dont really need anything too fancy!

Break out the wheels, use the included pair of allen wrenches, one on each side of each wheel, to unscrew the nut from the bolt. Pull out the old wheel, orient the new wheel to suit you and reinsert the bolts and retighten with the wrenches. Tighten them snugly but if the wheel is being restricted (spin it as you tighten) then you've got them too tight. You'll feel a little tugging when you get close to the end of snugging them, like you're going over bumps. Keep going until you feel that. Check all four wheels for free spin and you're good to go. You can use a power screwdriver or other tool to remove the old wheels and bearings, but don't do that on the install as you may overtighten the wheel and damage the bearing.

These were also about the same hardness as my original 12 year old rollerblade wheels were, so they give about the same feel. Softer wheels give you a softer ride and turns, harder wheels give a hard ride but turn quicker and last longer. So soft wheels on wood floors/rinks, medium for recreational skating and hard wheels for street hockey players.

The mm size (72mm in this case) is the diameter of the wheel.

I bought these to replace the old wheels for my K2 inline skates. The wheels come complete with the bearings and are very easy to install. The speed and manoeuvrability appears to be even better than I expected, a real improvement over the old set of wheels. I also should mention prompt delivery, which is always nice. Overall experience is very satisfactory.

My son had gotten very fast on his bicycle so I thought "Good opportunity to break out my rollerblades from 10+ years ago. As I skated, chunks of my wheels came crumbling off. I ordered these wheels, and man do they go fast! Love them, no complaints. Easy to change, no instructions needed. And the shipment came really quickly to boot!
