Big vs Small Skateboard Wheels
If you're deciding on different types of skateboard wheels, the larger the skateboard wheel diameter, the faster you will roll. A smaller wheel is lighter and easier to do flip tricks with. Softer skateboard wheels (below 90A) are designed to withstand rougher terrain and give a smoother and grippier ride. Harder wheels (above 90A and anything with a D rating) are suitable for urban and skate park skating on smoother terrain.
How tight should skateboard wheels be?
Your skateboard wheels should be tight enough so that they spin freely and provide enough stability at fast speeds. A good guide is to check if they wiggle on the truck’s axle (too loose), or too tight that they stop spinning after a few seconds.
How to remove skateboard wheels
Our shops have precise T-shaped skateboard tools for removing the bearings from skateboard wheels, as well as specialised bearings tools to prevent shield damage when prying the wheel. If you’re unsure of the process, please head into one of our stores and we’ll be glad to help.
