Skateboard wheels are typically made of high-grade urethane, and come in a large assortment of sizes, shapes, and formulas, designed for many different types of skating.
What size skateboard wheels should I use?
Most street skaters and ramp skaters prefer wheels ranging from 50 millimeters to 60 millimeters, while longboarders and slalom-skaters generally prefer much larger wheels, ranging from 60mm to 70mm and up.
Durometer is hardness, but what durometer should I buy?
Most street and park skaters prefer a harder wheel, around 95a to a 101a durometer rating. For those using longboards and cruisers, a considerably softer skateboard wheel ranging from 78a up to 87a durometer is preferred for tackling rougher pavement and terrain.
