Anybody know if so and how much offset or if they are centerset bearings? 60mm 97a reissue.

They're slightly offset, maybe 5mm or 6mm.
Here's a set on a 10" deck with Ace 66's.

Thank you very much Fuzzlord. Might I ask if the axle end/tip is hidden inside the outside edge of the wheel completely? I can't quite tell from your picture. If so, those might work.
Your setup looks good.

The end of the axle is about 3mm inside the outer edge of the wheel.

The K9 reissues I have are pretty close to being center set.  Mounted on Stage 1 Indy 169s, the width is about 10" even.

Thanks 70sSkater.
Trying to decide between the K9's or the Alva 101a. They both seem very similar in offset and should get pretty near 11" total width with 215mm Indy's.

Andy, the K-9 reissues I have are old and not the same as the reissues available now, so I don't know if any of the information I gave about them is at all helpful to you.  I think the ones I have are fairly soft, like around 85A or 88A?  I never skated mine, but I have heard the soft pour wheels are fairly slow.  I don't know about the newer 97A wheels.  My guess is that the harder Alva wheels will be faster, but I haven't ridden them, so that's only a guess.

Also, it looks like the wheels on Fuzzlord's board are not the single conical K-9s??

Went with the 101a Alva's after all. The shape is almost exactly like your pic 70sSkater. Fuzzlord's looks more rounded on the inside conical edge.
Thanks guys.

New K9 yellow/black swirl wheels look cool.
