When it comes to getting wheels for your skateboard, the best choice is always going to be the one that suits your skill level, board, and design aesthetic. To that aim, we compiled a list that incorporated some of the most popular wheel types, from pro-level selections with 101a durometers (Ricta Sparx) and softer/larger choices perfect for cruising, (Everland 65x51, Orangatang Kegel Downhill), to models that work just as well at the park as they do the street (Spitfire Classics, Skate One Mini-Logo Hybrid, Powell-Peralta G-Bones). We added the Big Boy Blank for those who need something reliable at a low price, and the Shark Wheel California Roll for skaters who are interested in tackling terrain in any weather and don't mind a bit of a departure from the traditional wheel shape. Our selections also include units that can be installed onto penny boards, old school cruiser decks, and longboards.
