Default Old Outdoor Wheels?

Just found my older outdoor wheels (30+ years in storage) I did a light clean and put in some new Bones Reds 7mm I bought from a SF skate shop. Used them for about 45 min outside on Sunday. For the most part, they seem fine. Should I do anything with them (add'l clean etc?) ok to just use them? or do I need to find someone with a lathe and carefully remove a light layer of the old compound? Again, seemed fine on the test run but thought it might be best to ask, *I think these were pretty good in their day (Variflex)

Everybody keeps putting up pix from their kitchen so I put them in the Microwave for display.

I guess if your just using these wheels for outdoor skating, there's no need to be doing anything to them, doing plenty of skating outdoors will take off any layers you wanted to do with a lathe.

Variflex X, without a doubt, were my favorite outdoor wheel in the 1980s. I seriously loved them.
