    Default Wheels for street skating

    I've been skating on these wheels i have no idea what there called. When I bought the board couple months ago it came complete (Toy Machine). Now I'm looking for wheels that I can ride for bumpy roads and smooth surface. I'm 5'7 113lbs if that matters and I just need help finding good wheels to skate these florida streets lol

    do you want a softer wheel for rough streets or do you want an all around wheel? we need more specifics

    If your headphones aren’t beats by dre you’re a peasant :^)

    The streets are not too rough. I guess all around wheel I skate wherever dont want cruising wheels though looking for all around wheels.

    I like my Spitfire 56mm 99a wheels for the street and occasional crappy sidewalks. They're in-between hard and soft to me, I think they work everywhere.

    it doesnt really matter if you are a beginner. But if you can do tricks like a powerslide or a revert you should get either bones stfs or spitfire f4s. If you are just starting out with powerslides i would recommend the spitfire cheapshots

    Spitfire Classics. Perfect all around wheel. There's no fancy formula or claims to greatness....but they'll do what you want them to do. There's a reason they haven't changed them in decades. They work.

    not neccesarily, they are smooth enough for cruising and work great for tricks, but don't have nearly enough grip for bowl or downhill skateboarding. for true all around skating, oj's are the best. have just the right amount of grip so you can turn and skate bowls but can bomb hills and do long, buttery slides. they feel similar to spitfire classics, but last longer.

    yeah, i like the classics. freaking fast and smooth for what they are. (cheap and hard) only downside (if you don't wear them out) is that you might slip out with them. i know you can find a softer version from like ten years ago.

    I have a Landyachtz Drop Carve and a cheap Minority Downhill board. On my drop carve they were like frigging monster truck wheels and plowed over everything. Sadly as I suspected they were too big for comfort. No wheel bite but a tiny bit of shoe rub and I did not like how top mounting the drop carve felt. Luckily I have some Orangatang Stimulus 70mm/86a on it which are love incarnate.
