    Default Wheels

    I know that there are a hundred threads out there about wheels, and everyone says there favorite brands of wheels. But I have a more specific question. What is a good brand for vert. wheels with high durometers.

    Wheels are Wheels IMO.

    But don't listen to your GirlFriend.

    Size matters.

    The bigger the wheel the more chance you have for wheel bite!

    I have some 57s for park and they're perfect. The size gives you extra speed and an all around smooth ride. They're Spitfires, but I haven't had any problems with them.
