Roller Hockey Wheels and Bearings

I need to replace my wheels and bearings.. any good recommendations? What sizes should I get for the wheels?

Also, on bearings.. can i get skateboard bearings (I also skateboard so I know what the good brands are) and stick them in my wheels?

I think you need to provide a little more information. What surface do you plan to be skating on (indoor, asphalt)? The tougher the surface, the harder the wheel you need. If you're skating on an indoor court, I would recommend something with the hardness of 76a or under and outdoors use 83-84 a. Also, what brand of skates do you use? I know my Bauer skates can't use a certain wheel setup because they simply won't fit.

I like the 80-76-76-72 or HiLo configuration.

I can't comment on the skateboard issue as i've never tried it, but I'd be willing to bet it wouldn't work. You might already know that bearings have a rating system, Abec-7 is better than abec-5.
