    Bearing ??? Ceramic or SKF?

    I am a novice, and am doing off-season P.P.M..... bearings Question for the Pro's out there. I have a set of Marchesini MR10RS forged Aluminum wheels. Powder coating and replacing bearings. Marchesini OEM bearing is the SKF 6006 2RS (roller ball bearing). size is 30mmx 55mm x 13mm, is there an upgrade to this option?
    Ceramic bearing are expensive, are they worth the money, long term?

    Anyone upgraded to a higher quality internal bearing?

    I am ignorant to bearings and spec's... anyone have experience or recommend a better bearing replacement than the SKF?

    Private messages, email, or call me.... thanks,

    Ceramic bearings wear out so much faster, not worth it. Unless you like to swap bearings every 300-400 miles.

    Even as an expert, we use OEM bearings. I’d rather have durability over a slight performance gain.
