Skateboard wheels - choosing the right durometer and size
The wheel durometer and size are the two main factors you should pay attention to when buying skateboard wheels. Combined these two factors determine the speed and the grip of the wheel. So we recommend that you do some research or call our customer service before you buy your next set of skateboard wheels.
Wheel size: The size of the skateboard wheel is measured in diameter and affects speed and control. Bigger skateboard wheels are typically faster but less manoeuvrable while smaller wheels tend to be easier to manoeuvre but are not as fast.
Wheel Durometer: The hardness of the wheel is indicated with a numerical rating and the letter A. The durometer affects the durability, road grip and shock absorption of the wheels. The higher the rating, the harder the wheels. Harder skateboard wheels have a long lifetime and are very suitable for ramps. They don't have an optimal grip on slippery surfaces and are not that comfortable for skating the streets.
We have packages with four skateboard wheels but you can also buy wheels separately. On the product pages, you can see the number of wheels included in a package. It is also possible to choose between different diameters in order to get exactly the size of wheel you prefer for your skateboard.
