I wear heelys mega fat larges. The wheels are very hard to come by. Every place I check just has small and medium. I have disassembled my wheels and find they are just an axle with standard roller skate or skate board bearings. The only thing that is preventing me from simply replacing the bearings once in a while is the C Clip that is used to hold them on the axle. I can get it off but I can't get it back on. It has 2 little holes in it like there is a tool designed specifically to spread it so you can put it back on but I have had no luck figuring out where to go from here. Any suggestions?

There is a tool just for it (C-clip pliers), and yes, you'll need that tool to get it back on.

We're getting on 2020 and there's still no source of Large Megas?
