Big wheels are beter for vert, 50mm to 53mm are good for street cuz there smaller.

Bigger wheels are for speed. Such as for filmers and longboards. Any kind of tranny (bowls, mini ramps, vert) larger wheels are nice. I ride 51s, because I only skate street.

I ride 54mm they last longer, and they are faster. I guessing for slides like blunts , nose, and tail slides.

Go bigger... Small doesn't make it any easier to flip the board, and you just give up speed.

I had 53mm wheels and after a while they seemed more like bearing holders than wheels. I will probably get bigger wheels next time because with smaller wheels when I go down some ramps at skateparks the bottom of my board scrapes on the concrete.

They will shrink anyways. just stay with 54mm and your wheels will last longer.

i got 50mm wheels for my board a lil while ago, but only coz they didnt have any bigger at my local skate shop. I find them faster than bigger wheels, and its harder for u to stay on the board due to their small size, bigger wheels are more stable in my opinion..
