wheel question. please please advise.

i have this on going problem which i cant seem to figure out.

STUPID WHEELS.

i can build a fast engine, but its completely pointless cause my down fall is always the front wheel.

for example:

five stars(puch)

which size loose ball bearings, and then how many?!

right now, im at full party, and then take one out. size 3/16th

next step- start tightening the bearing races. sitting snuggley next to the balls but spinning freely.

next up- that nut.

how do i properly tighten those guys so they dont start threading tighter?! when i think it is good and i give it a nice spin it gets locked up and then im back at square one?

please advise as to what you guys do to get this perfect.

I thought all five stars were sealed bearings.

5 stars have sealed rear wheels and loose front.
