    Abec Rating doesn't really matter, they can be good or terrible. If you put the bearings in the wheels and they spin for more than, say 3 seconds after a hard push, you should be fine.

    It really depends on what they are lubricated with and how much. A tiny amount of light oil will roll longest with no load. More light oil will slow the bearings slightly. Gels will be slower and grease will be the slowest.

    The abec number will be meaningless for this. It is a vibration standard for machines that run at speeds that would be over 200 mph on a board.

    A well made abec 3 bearing has more space between the balls and the race, which can let them roll faster than higher numbers.
