It may also worth the cost to buy ceramic bearings since they are smoother and last longer
Nah, ceranmic doesn't mean better weather sealing, good old SKF, FAG, etc. work perfectly well and cheap enough to last a long time before replacing.
Rainy, when you replace the bearing, may be worth taking it to a LBS to ensure that the axles is adjusted not too tight, as doing so will cause the bearing to wear out faster.
