Readers Respond: What Are the Best Skateboard Wheels?

Responses: 36


From the article: Best Skateboard Wheels
Which wheels you slap onto your skateboard is a personal choice, but some wheels are definitely better than others. I have my list of the Best Skateboard Wheels, and you can share which wheels you think are the worst, but you might completely disagree! Share your opinion here on which skateboard wheels are the BEST, and make sure to explain why you like them. You can also read what other skaters have said - who knows, maybe you'll find a new type of wheels you've never heard of!

Pig wheels

I had a pair, and they worked great. They were real smooth, like bones stf wheels, except better. Were kinda skinny, kinda fat. Really in the middle, which is good. They are great, so try them, you won't regret your purchase. :-)

Best wheels

the best wheels are the walmart wheels. They dont flatspot, grip good when needed and slide extremely well when Needed. I have never had a problem with them and I can ollie like a deck and shuvit a curb :O. My best powerslide was like 10 inches. Theyre so good.

OJ 100% juice!!

In my opinion OJ wheels are gnarly! I have the 58mm that are 97a these are badass in bowls, trannys they grip good slide excellent too. They aren't to hard either nor soft just perfect. I highly recommend these wheels 100%. Been using them for 2 months and no flat spotting or cone.

I just used up some f1 streetburners and got some 53mm today and spitfires are the best out there and I probably wont skate any other wheels

Sk808 Wheels

Sk808 wheels - a small company out of Houston - makes some great wheels. 53mm "candy corns" and 58mm Philosphers. I'm old so I ride the philosophers and they're every bit as good as any other major brand-name wheel. Several months now - no flat spots. Steve - if you can get a set (or two - maybe each) for review, you should review them. I'm not in any way involved with the company - just an enthusiast for Made in USA and skater-owned/operated companies.
