Question about replacing inline skate wheels

My old wheels were on abec 5 bearings. I have replaced them with identical sized wheels (72 72 80 80) and the new wheels have abec 9 bearings. But after putting in the new, clean wheels, there is a LOT of resistance to turning. Did I do something wrong?

In the meantime, I've gone back to my old ones.

Bearings broken in maybe? Over tightening them maybe? Try using some proper bearing lubricant.

They're purple/clear Labeda Millenium wheels... not sure about the grip rating. Durometer rating: 76a.

Did you buy brand name or generic bearings? And 76A's you can use outdoor... I've had the stock ones on my skates ever since I bought them about 5-6 years ago. I used to rollerblade to/from school before I had a car and they're still in decent shape.

Hmm they're probably generic abec-9s.

I got them for free with my wheel purchase at http://www.hockeywheels.com/

Worse case scenario - I guess I'll take my abec 5 bearings from the old wheels and use them with my new wheels. Bit of a hassle though, having to pop the bearings out.

The generic bearings are most likely your culprit. Even though it has a higher ABEC rating than your old bearings, your ABEC 5's were probably made with a higher quality material which will allow it to roll smoother.
