Aggressive skates tend to have bigger bolts then fitness inline skates. This means that the spacers in aggressive skates only go between the bearings well the spacers in fitness skates fill the gap between the bolt and the bearing. I lost one of the spacers that came with my skates. Fortunately the bone Swiss bearings I bought had spacers in the box to separate the bearings in the box.

Default Spacer Types

I looked on rollerwarehouse and they have ones for rollerblades, ones for razors, ones for UFS frames, ones for 8mm, and one for 6mm. Thats why I asked coz I wasn't sure which I should get. I'm thinking 8mm coz they seem to be the most common. Any suggestions?

Measure the diameter of your bolts and call up the rollerwerehouse people.

My guess is if there is room between your bolts and bearings get something like these:

but if your bolts are snug to your bearings then get something like these:

It is best to measure your bolts and call them up on the phone so you get what you want.

Note: I am assuming you have standard sized bearings in your skates and not something weird like micro bearings.
