    If the ones you have are still spinning well, keep those and don't buy new ones! it's up to you, if you want the new wheels to look sexy (lol) then go ahead and get new ones!

    No. You can youtube how to take the bearings out of the arbor wheels and put them on your Abec11 wheels. Very easy process and should work just fine.

    As long as they spin and none of the casings are dented, then they should be good. You can always soak them in a cleaner and allow them to dry out for a day or so to make them look close to brand new!
