I'm about the same as everyone else in how often I replace and clean them. So far, I have replaced them about once a season, but take them out a few times to clean.I have had Bones Reds, Bones Super Reds, and Bionic Swiss. I noticed a difference in how my wheels rolled when I switched from Bones Reds to Bones Super Reds. I kept the same wheels, so I feel like this was legit. I kind of hate maintaining my bearings, so I decided to go with Swiss bearings this time because in theory they are supposed to just last longer (with slightly less maintenance). They seem to be staying cleaner, but I'll have to let you know in the long run if the price was really worth it.
Side note: I looked at the ceramic options for a quick second before I decided these seem unnecessary for indoor wheels (they help prevent rust, etc.).
