I want to replace the loose bearings in my halo combat wheels http://halorims.co.uk/products-details.php?id=HUHACR6K&type=mtb&c=J. Their website says they are standard loose bearings. Are all bearing balls the same size?

If not, what is "standard size"?

What is the best grease to pack them in?

    Not sure which standard, but the bearings in a Shimano rear hub are ¼” in diameter and each race contains 9 bearings. 18 in total. Front hub is 3/16″ and each race contains 10 bearings. 20 in total.

    I use basic WB grease from Halfords, big tin for a fiver, but most people seem to recommend teflon grease.
