How to buy bearings for inline skate wheels,
quad roller skate wheels, skateboard wheels,
and scooter wheels.
Who Makes the Best Bearings?
Bearings made in Switzerland have the best reputation,
or at least those bearings labled as "Swiss Bearings".
But note that not all Swiss bearings were actually made
in Switzerland. Some importers and distributors use
the term "Swiss Bearings" to describe a manufacturing
style. You will sometimes see Swiss Bearings with
"Made in Taiwan" (or another non-Swiss country)
marked on the package.
and of course someone Switzerland could always
decide to make make low end bearings for the budget market.
So read the package carefully and ask questions before you buy!
