6204-2ZJ Wheel bearings

These particular bearings have a metal seal instead of plastic. Are they any different than the 6204-rsj?
Am I shooting my self on the wheel by using these bearings?

Thanks

Unless there is a grease zerk, I prefer the rubber seal to the metal shield as it is more resistant to entry of bad stuff.

Any derivative of a 6204 will be the same by dimensions. The rest of the numbers designate seal style etc.

Z means shield, not seal. Look carefully at the gap next to the inner race.

IMHO get double sealed bearings not shielded

Is there anywhere on the interwebs that have a reference chart for the differing types of bearings?

Pick a good bearing mfg, go to their site.

SKF is pretty good, NSK, Nachi, FAG, etc all make good bearings, the suffixes vary between mfg's, if there is a question go to there site and look it up.

Google bearing cross reference for more information

Or take the easy way, go to your local industrial bearing shop and talk to them, get your bearings and seals for MUCH less $$$.

all 5 bearings and seals are probably about $75

The metal shield will not keep the bearing sealed well enough for use as a wheel bearing. It is a dust shield only and will not stop moisture from getting into the bearing. You need the 6204-2RS.
