For that price you can't go wrong. Mine cost a heck of a lot more.

I have both of those wheels from Woodturners Wonders. They are very good quality and work very well. The 220 wheel removes material very quickly and leaves a fairly smooth finish. Not quite as smooth as my Tormek does, but pretty close. I would recommend getting the special washer kit they offer for about $5 for each wheel. They help center the wheel in the case there is any runout in your grinder shaft. Nice people to deal with. A number of guys in out turning club have also bought these wheels and I haven't heard any complaints.

I just ordered my two CBN wheels today and I anxiously await their arrival. A very nice guy to do business with. Unlike my resent post about my disappointment with Rockler and their "price matching".I know,I know, Boo hoo,boo hoo.

These guys sell wheels for the Tormek also.

In your opinion as a Tormek user - Should I be looking into these for use with MY Tormek or just stick with the stones???

In particular, How long does the abrasive last as compared to your Tormek stones?

I don't think I would buy the cbn wheel for my Tormek. Since buying the cbn wheels for my 8" grinder, I haven't used my Tormek except for honing my skews on the leather wheel. The cbn wheels are supposed to last a long time. The pros who have demonstrated at our club said they haven't worn any out yet, and they sharpen a lot more than the average turner.
