Skateboard Wheels

Skateboard wheels are the element of the skate that is in contact with the ground, so it is important to keep them in good condition and that they are adapted to your skating style and the terrain where they will be used.

To ensure you have fun, it is better to use them on wheels, but not just any wheels. In Fillow we help you to choose the best skateboard wheels, the most suitable for your skate and your way of skating.

 

How to choose skateboard wheels?

Skate wheels have changed a lot over time, both in sizes and materials, thanks to the continued development of this industry. 

Here’s a quick summary of what you should consider when choosing skateboard wheels. 


Skateboard Wheels Size

The sizes of the wheels are usually the diameter in millimeters, the most common are from 50 to 59mm. 

The smaller wheels have lower final speed, but higher acceleration, and vice versa. 

If you want to train technical maneuvers on smooth surfaces, you should prefer smaller wheels, around 52mm. 

If you prefer higher speed to move around or skate on ramps, the best sizes are 56-57mm. 

Remember that if you want to use very big wheels, you may need to use high trucks or risers, so they will not touch the deck in any case. 

 

Street and Park Skate Wheels

The best skate wheels for street and park are smaller: lighter and lower skate, with better acceleration for tricks, etc.

  • If you are going to skate on smooth floors, and you want to train technical tricks, your ideal wheel’s size is between 50 and 53 mm.

  • For more uneven floors, ramps or if you also use your skate to move around, slightly larger wheels are preferable, from 53 to 56 mm. 

Therefore, 52-53 mm would be the average diameter, that is why it is the preferred size for street skateboarding.


Ramps and Cruising Skate Wheels

For ramps, the ideal measures are between 56 and 60 mm, because in this case it is interesting to achieve maximum speed to reach heights. 

In cruising, larger wheels adapt better to any kind of surfaces, they offer greater speed and it is not so important that it’s harder to maneuver with them. 

In any case, remember that the trucks you use limit the size of the wheels you can use, because if you set up very big wheels on low trucks, without using risers, you could stop the wheels against the deck at the most inconvenient moment, with a painful outcome.


Skateboard wheels Hardness

There are several ways to classify the wheels according to the hardness of the urethane from with they are made. 


Wheels Classification according to hardness:

The most common is the A-scale, used by most skateboard brands and most well-known skaters. The larger the number, the harder the wheel (101 A is harder than 95 A, for example).

This scale becomes somewhat imprecise for hardness from 101 A, so some brands like Bones use different or additional scales, such as the B or D scale. To find the correspondence between one hardness scale and another, Bones recommends adding 20 points to the value of B to get the value that would be in A. For example, wheels 83 B would be like 103 A, and are much harder than 101 A.

 

How to choose the hardness of your wheels?

As always, it depends on what you want your skate for, and your preferences. Hard wheels reach higher speeds, have higher acceleration and lower grip, but are for use on smooth floors. Soft wheels adapt better to the irregularities of the terrain, have a greater grip, but are slower. They are also mores susceptible to abrasion and deformation (the dreaded ‘flatspots’ of which we will speak later). 

So if you are going to do technical street tricks on smooth floors, harder wheels are better for you, because they are better for tricks and grinds. If you want to move around on all kinds of floors, the slightly softer wheels will be more comfortable for you, and they will offer greater grip. 


Soft Wheels  (75-92 A)

The softest wheels are used almost exclusively for cruisers, because they adapt perfectly to any type of terrains, and if you like to just skate around, with them you will have less inconvenience with the pebbles and parallelepipeds. They are also a good option if you are going to record videos.


Medium Wheels (92-95 A)

They are a bit faster that the soft ones, with a very good grip, but it is not so difficult to do tricks on them from time to time or get a little more speed on your walks. 


Hard Wheels (96-99 A)

With a reasonable speed, a bit of grip, but also with good maneuverability for tricks, these are the most recommended hardness for beginners. They serve for both street and park skating. 


High hardness Wheels (99-101 A and 83-84 B)

They are preferred by the most experienced skaters. They are faster and have a greater acceleration capability, so they are perfect for more technical skateboarding. However, on uneven floors, they may be uncomfortable.

 

SHAPES AND TYPES OF SKATEBOARD WHEELS

Core vs Standard Wheels

Skate wheels can have the central hole part reinforced with a harder plastic than the rest of the wheel, to keep the bearing in place (as when spacers are used). Those wheels that have this are called ‘core wheels’, and the rest are simply standard or ‘non-core’. 

Core wheels save weight due to their core material and are especially good for very soft wheels, for hard wheels they are not so necessary.


Shapes Skate Wheels

Each wheel may have a different shape, with a variety of angles in the curvature of the profile and the width of the part that is in contact with the grounded. A smoother or even convex profile reduces weight to the wheel and prevents the curve of the profile from bothering you in your grinds and edges. As for the surface of contact with the ground, the larger it is, the better the grip and the lower the speed. And, on the contrary, the narrower it is, the more acceleration. 

You can find more information about the different shapes available in the section of each wheels’ brand. 


Skate wheel technology

 

Wheels are usually made of urethane but more and more compounds are being mixed to make them much more durable. The common goal of all brands is to achieve wheels without flat spots (wear on one side).


What are flat Spots?

When the wheel stops being round and not longer rotates as well as the first day, we can say that it has a flatspot. It occurs when the material wears out by abrasion.

This can happen, for example, when you put the wheels in a position perpendicular to the direction in which they are advancing, as usually made to brake.

The wheels of higher quality and hardness such as some from Bones and Spitfire, are almost impossible to deform with normal use.
