Is Shimano 9 speed jockey wheels OK with eight speed drivetrain.

I need a medium cage RD for a compact MTB crankset and ebay has the many more medium caged nine speed derailleurs. Will the 9sp jockey wheels work OK with eight speed chains?

Yes, no problem. I ran a 9-speed Ultegra rear derailleur with an otherwise all-8-speed drivetrain with no difficulty at all.

It might depend on your chain, but if you get any rubbing you can easily cure it with some thin washers.
