Back in to Roller Hockey. Question About Old Skates

so i just got invited to play for a roller hockey team this summer. thing is, i havent played inline hockey in 8 years, and my skates are 8 or 9 years old.

first of all, the boot REALLY sucks (especially when compared to my X60 skates). there is no support. but whatever.

im more concerned about the wheels and bearings.

i assume that the bearings should be fine, and most likely just need a good cleaning. any recommended ways to do that? or just take the allen wrench to them and give them a good spray of air and some wd-40?

on top of that, will the wheels still be ok after sitting unused for 8 years? will they be brittle and lack grip?

furthermore...IF i should get new bearings/wheels or both, how much would/should it cost for replacements?
