does putting new wheels in the freezer for a week before you skate them really prolong the life, or is it just bullshit?

How can you even tell. If you freeze them they're just gonna thaw out and be all wet. It could damage your bearings.

my freind always flatspots his wheels after like 3 months of skating them. he heard this oo and was like what have i got to lose? its 6 months later and they still roll so go for it but it does'nt work for certain types of wheels

NO NO NO NO NO it makes them easy to flatspot

It would probably work in making them harder because the cold air for a long period of time would make the polyurethane contract and become more compressed.

thats what i was thinking the cold with make the molecules slow down witch will make them alot harder but they might crack easier
