The Milwaukee's are just rebranded formulas. You can get Kazane hubs in colors too. I have powdercoated formulas that hold up alright. Anodized would be better, IMO, but it was all I could get in white.
The IROs will be more than adaquate for street riding (and track riding too, for 99% of people, anyhow). Most of the whole "....don't role as smooth as Phil/DA/etc..." is strictly mental (ie "I just spent $300 on hubs so they better be worth it"), especially when talking about riding on the street.
