You know those things that help you go down the street? They like round, usually white, pretty hard, and vibrate under your feet? What are they called? Oh yeah! Wheels! Skateboard wheels can be one of the most important aspects of any skateboard. Each wheel comes in a variety of urethane durometers, each with its own area of expertise. Some of the long running legendary wheel brands are Spitifre, Bones, and OJ. The durometer of the wheel is the scale we use to determine how hard or soft the wheel is. The higher the number before the ‘A’ the harder the wheel is. Typically your skateboard wheel has a durometer of 99a but many brands have been coming out with new hard wheels to accommodate the ever-changing world of skateboarding. Now there’s a whole new scale: the B scale. The B scale is considered to be extremely hard. You will find companies like Welcome and Ricta releasing wheels that are in the 84B range. Don’t stress it too much, just think of it as a really hard wheel! Most standard skateboard wheels come in sizes anywhere from 50mm to 60mm and all have their own areas they excel in. A smaller wheel, say from 50mm to 54mm, is going to be for someone who is focusing on technical tricks and smoother grinds on a concrete ledges. Whereas someone who wants to ride in the park, on ramps, or have an easier time getting from point A to Point B, will want to lean more towards a 55mm to 60mm wheel. All of this is based on personal preference and there’s no right or wrong way to set up your skateboard. Aside from size, the other way that skateboard wheels vary will be in the shape of the wheel (i.e. the surface or contact patch that physically touches the concrete when you are riding). People who want to do a ton of grinds typically find themselves liking a smaller contact patch or a narrower wheel like Bones STF Wheels. On the other side, if you want to ride ramps you typically find people leaning towards a wider contact patch and, in turn, a larger wheel like the Spitfire Classic 58mm Wheels. Usually a good rule of thumb is that the smaller the wheel the smaller the frame and contact patch. There is always the unknown dude who goes against grain. Say you just want to cruise down the street? You are going to want a softer wheel. Here at Daddies we have a variety of smaller, softer, street shaped, skateboard wheels from companies like OJ, Sml Wheels, Spitfire, and Ricta. These wheels typically have a durometer of 70a to 80a. You will find that it is much easier to cruise down the street with fewer pushes and without breaking out in such a sweat like an overweight rent-a-cop chasing you out of the spot. Just remember where street wheels excel in doing tricks and riding parks, softer cruiser wheels are going to be good for cruising around. If you try to jump down stairs with a soft wheel you have the possibility of breaking them just because they are not meant for that application. In the event you have any questions about what wheel is good for you, the size you should get, or how wide the contact patch is on a particular wheel please give us a call we are always here to help.
