    Wheels do not matter, unless you are so picky you can't live you fucking life. Just get the wheels you think look cool, cheap, etc.

    Rictas powerslide easy, and aren't supposed to flatspot. To those that think wheels are wheels, they're not. Durometer makes a huge difference, more so than size. Darkstar and Ricta are roughly the same going by this chart. I'm getting Autobahns next because I've heard so much good stuff about them.

    Actually, your retarded. Wheels do matter. I know they dont matter as much as decks or bearings, but some wheels wear down faster than others and get flatspots easier. And yes, Autobahns are good wheels.

    Yes, wheels do matter, although you won't die from the wrong wheel on street.

    Autobahns in my opinion are the best street wheel you can get. Since street terrain can vary so much from rough ground to smooth to slippery, it would be a good idea to get a good all-around wheel. Autobahn is fairly smooth for rough ground, fast on smooth ground, and grippy on slippery ground, and for the powersliders, they still slide on command.

    I think Ricta are only good if you strictly skate smooth ground. They are harder than 100a, so they will be teeth chattering on rough ground. I also don't think they are very durable on rough ground either. I've had my Rictas on my board for only a week, and 2-3 millimeters already wore off, and they had several gouges in them. They are probably just too brittle for rough ground. Maybe for strictly smooth ground, they won't have these problems.

    i dont think it matters, get some cheap ones or average ones and then get new ones when they wear out
