Questions on CBN/Alternative grinding wheels

Barry Irby
I have an 8" Brand X low speed grinder from WoodCraft and still have the original white wheels on it. They are 3/4" wide. There appears there might be room for 1" wheels without leaving the end guards off.

If you were buying alternate grinding wheels, what would you recommend? What type of grit and what size grit? What width wheel? Round corners or square? And approximately what would they cost? Where would you buy them? And can you grind soft steel or aluminum on them? Are there any questions I should have asked?
