Grinding wheels (*&!@$%)

>Well, I did a stupid thing today and was just lucky I didn't get hurt. Went to sharpen a roughing gouge and for some reason did not tighten the Wolverine down tight. WHAM!!!! Ruined my 60 grit wheel. It didn't fly apart luckily, but it's got a big chip out of it. Sooo...now I am out of turning until I can get some new wheels. I am assuming that both wheels should be replaced for balance reasons? Are the Norton wheels worth the price? What a bummer.
