Wheel Bearings

I'm replacing front pads and rotors. If I'm using new bearing races can I reuse the bearings as long as they are in good shape or should they be replaced when new races are used?
Thanks for any help

You can reuse from my understanding, however they are fairly cheap so I'd do it if I were u

I went ahead and got new bearings and races instead of re-using the old ones. The rotors I got came with races already installed. The inner bearings fit just fine in the races, but the outer bearings do not. Not sure if I got the wrong part or if I need to swap those races out. I'm also getting differing stories on whether I should re-use the spindle nut, washer and cotter pins. Should these be re-used?

When ever you replace wheel bearings you should replace the races, as the bearings and races are wear harded. To not replace the races you will have earily bearing failure.

The bearings in my opinion are cheap enough you might as well change them.
