Meh, Im done with that aftermarket bearing hype. From my experience with my original 90k old RB, I would say any new RB is better than old ones AND also the nut behind the wheel mod is very critical 🤣
I ran with OE rod bearings for 60,000 miles after my first replacement at 80,000 miles. I went with OE at 80,000 miles to 150,000 miles because that was the only choice at the time. They look pretty good for 60,000 miles.

Currently, I'm on BE. Lets see how they look when I pull them at in 20,000 more miles after 50,000 miles of life on a 200,000 mile s85.

Recap of my bearing life:

1. OEM (leaded) 0 to 80,0000 miles.
2. OEM (leaded) 80,000 to 150,000 miles.
3. BE 150,000 to 180,000+ miles (present).
