Not sure about bearings.

Happy, not that you asked for installation advice, but some observations when I did mine.
Carefull if they are new, I went thru 3 sets of bearings before I found casting sand still inside one rotor, give them a good clean before you put the bearings in.
An obvious point to some but change the inner cones as well, some suppliers say its OK to leave the inners in.
Maybe OK if the inner and outer are the same brand but its safer to change them.
Last point, make sure the cones are all the way home not just flush with the hub.

Cheers
TW.

Bendix Advance if you want black wheels from all the dust..

EBC Green Stuff.. bite a bit harder and are not as dusty.
put some good dot 5 fluid in the brake system, you can slam em all day and still have a firm pedal..

by slamming I mean on a race track style slamming..

oh yeah they work fantastic on the road too

used both brands EBC by far.

For anyone in Vic, tke Nick's advice and speak to Cam. Can't praise them enough.

Oh, and go the EBC greenstuffs if you want to spend the money. If you are after a cheaper pad, look at the axxis range. Made by Bendix, reccommended to me by Cam when we were trying to chase my brake shudder problems and throwing out pads every 6000kms. They were as good as any other pad I have used bar the Greenstuffs, including Bendix advance & ultimates.

I was waiting for the Bendix hating from somewhere :D
I have to agree with the dust comment.
I'm yet to try a set of EBC Greenstuffs (next pad change), but the Ultimates are dusty as f**k.
They do bite nicely though, and I like the feel they provide.
