I have bought one set of replacement jockey wheels in the entire time I was riding. last year I won a Shimano 105 RD that flatly stated it needed jockey wheels but I got it for a song and it was in excellent shape. I went back to eBay and got a stock set for $10.00 as well as some spares I put in my box for another $10.00. I looked at the ceramic bearing wheels but they were way overpriced at $60.00+ and some at $150.00 for a few. I could not justify the expense when the new stock that perform well were within my budget. But then I operate on a really low budget all the time, save a good N+1 and PIE!
