Skateboard Wheels FAQs

  • How do Wheel Hardness and Diameter Affect Speed?

    Wheel hardness is measured on a durometer scale and softer wheels, allow for more grip which makes them a good choice for cruising and street skating. Harder wheels, of course, offer less grip and this makes them ideal for sliding and any sort of manoeuvers where you want to make the most of the minimal traction. If you are looking for a set of wheels to offer you more speed, harder wheels will achieve this due to the improved energy transfer from the rider’s movements to the ground. This is due to the minimised energy loss of the harder wheels; as the wheels maintain their shape and resilience, less energy is absorbed and this ensures that more of the rider’s effort is translated into skateboard speed. 

  • How often should I replace my skateboard wheels?

    There are a few telltale signs that suggest you may need to replace your skateboard wheels. First of all, we always say, examine your wheels regularly for flattening or coning; flattening spots suggest that the material of the wheel has been worn away, causing an uneven surface. Loss of traction is another giveaway and if you notice that your wheels don’t grip surfaces as well, be sure to switch your skateboard wheels as soon as possible as riding with wheels in this condition can be dangerous for you and those around you. Also, if you feel vibrations, with reduced slide control and the whole skating experience feels rough in general, this is a clear sign that the wheels need to be replaced due to wear and tear. 

  • Can I mix and match wheel brands with different skateboard setups?

    Yes, building custom skateboards is all about mixing and matching different brands for different components. There’s one word you need to remember when it comes to customising your setup and that is COMPATIBILITY. You just need to make sure that the components you choose are all compatible with one another, for example, you will want to pay attention to the skateboard wheel size and diameter and ensure it fits the trucks and they need to be compatible with the deck style and size, etc. Customising your setup can be tricky, but the key is to enjoy the process. At the end of the day, you are creating your very own setup that is unique to you and showcasing your personality to the world, so have a bit of fun with it!

  • Can I use skateboard wheels for cruising and commuting?

    Using skateboard wheels for cruising and commuting is not only possible but is a convenient and enjoyable option for riders of all ages and skill levels. Skateboard wheels are versatile by nature and provide a smooth rolling experience, allowing them to cover distances with ease. You will want your wheels to be of a softer durometer when cruising as softer wheels absorb vibrations and provide an easygoing ride. Some skateboard wheels have also been designed specifically for cruising rather than executing tricks in the skateparks and on the street. It is also worth noting that softer wheels is a preferable option for rough surfaces whereas harder wheels can offer a faster and more comfortable riding experience on smoother pavement surfaces.
