Our online skate shop carries some of the most solid skateboard wheels available. We only carry reputable brands, so you know the quality is always from the top shelf.

Skateboard Wheels

Skateboard wheels are made of polyurethane (PU) and their hardness is measured in a durometer. Most skateboard wheels vary somewhere between 75a and 104a. Wheels lying on 78a to 90a are considered as soft wheels, while 90a to 98a are in medium hardness, and anything from 99a and upwards are considered as hard wheels.

We recommend that you choose hard wheels if you skate skate parks and street skating. Soft wheels are best for cruising if you use the skateboard as a means of transportation or if you want to longboard. Medium durometer wheels are good for beginners and for street skating on rough surfaces.
