@jens-eskildsen I've seen it mentioned...on RC cars.

@vtrn_raptor Depends whether the bore needed doing.
If you didn't hone it or bore it and merely changed the rings, then 50 miles would suffice.
You should be free to rip roar now mate.
When you hone or rebore it I'd recommend 300 miles. 1000 on a fuel rebuild. But rings, 50 miles will suffice.

@ricky0115 Hopefully off the shelf.
Sounds like you're going to need some basic engineering tools bud.
You're going to want to get yourself a Vernier Caliper
I only go for the best stuff myself
You want to get some off the shelf bearings mate. Because bearings will fail and you don't want it to be a pain in the back side.
If you can't get the bearings you want off the shelf, then the next logical step would be to get bearings suited to the external diameter of the spindle.
You might be able to machine the wheel hub to accept a larger bearing, but be wary not to go too thin.
Probably preferrably I'd have a spigot ring made up to press fit into the hub, reducing the size, and therefore not weakening the integrity of the wheel.
The Spigot ring would take up the slack from the undersized bearing.
simplybearings.co.uk has your back for all your bearing needs.
