inline skating: fastest bearings, most durable wheels?

I skate pretty aggressively on the streets and i usually wear out my wheels pretty fast. I don't remember what type of wheels ive had (grizzly?), but they were the hardest i could find at the time. I currently have Mach3 bearings, which are good, but I know there are better ones out there since people have passed me on downhill stretches that are equal in size to me.

Also, I'm looking to order if i have to, but would rather just pick up the goods in a store in Vancouver BC- i forget if i can fit 80mm wheels or if i have to stick with 76mm. Anyone know of a shop? Preferably one that sells aggressive skates as i find they stock good parts. I have a hybrid aggressive/street, made more for speed, jumps and durability, not rail slides.. the rail slides are a bit too crazy for me...

I don't know the shops in Vancouver, but I have had very good experience ordering from Inline Warehouse, and they definitely have the aggressive supplies.

Fastest bearings out there are the 608 Swiss Bones Ceramic Bearings. Any of the Bones Swiss are really fast.
Inline Warehouse is where I would go too.

I dunno about the wheels as I am an indoor hockey player but Labedas are pretty good and I saw they make the Labeda Asphalt Wheel.
