Guide Review - Powell Classic Bowlrider Skateboard Wheels
Powell Classic Bowlrider wheels are available with either Powell's Park Formula (PF) or with a straight up hardness of 95a. 95a is moderately hard, and will work great, but I recommend going for the Park Formula wheels. They do cost a little more, but the money is worth it. These wheels should last you longer than anything you've tried before.
Powell Classic Bowlrider wheels come in one size - 60mm, a nice large size, perfect for skateboarding at the park. However, if you want larger wheels, Powell also has Bowl Bomber wheels, sized at 64mm and available with either a 95a hardness, or with Powell's Park Formula.
The only drawback to these wheels is that they are so boring to look at. For a lot of skaters out there, this couldn't matter less, but I know plenty of guys who want wheels that look cool. If that's your angle, I would still encourage you to give these wheels a try.
Powell Classic Bowlrider wheels should give you what you want for smooth, slick, comfortable park and bowl skateboarding. Give them a try and see what you think!
