i use them on my front axle but I run pegs... I like them, lots of thread so it's hard to strip them out.

sure they're damn close but one is manufatured to a metric spec and the other to an imperial spec, so when toleraces are out you get play, which means stripped threads. That's how i see it anyway.

10mm or 3/8 BMX axles also come in different TPI (teeth per inch). This used to be based on sealed and unsealed hubs, but I don't think the distinction is so clear cut anymore, so watch out.
