Most skateboard wheels today are made of a plastic called polyurethane, and some companies will add some different materials to make different types of skateboard wheels to suit different needs. So what size wheels are there in the market?
The diameter of the wheel is generally measured in millimeters (mm). Most skateboard wheels are between 48mm and 75mm in diameter. The diameter of the wheel affects the speed of the glide and the speed of the start. Small diameter wheels slide slower, but start faster, and the opposite is true for large diameters.
1. 48-53mm wheels, the sliding speed is slow and the starting speed is fast. Pretty good for street skaters.
2. The 54-59mm wheels are suitable for skaters who like to do tricks and need to brush the street at the same time, and are also very suitable for beginners.
3. Wheels above 60mm, large wheels are generally used on Old School style boards and longboards. Big wheels slide faster and roll over rough ground with ease, but are slow to start.
The width of the wheel-floor contact surface is equally important. A larger contact area will distribute the weight over a larger area, which means that the wheel is easily decelerated, so many wheels have rounded edges to reduce the width of the contact surface, making the wheel easier to turn and slippery. faster.
The smaller the width of the contact surface, the easier it is for the wheel to slide sideways, so it is not suitable for beginners. A wheel with a large contact surface width, which is very close to the width of the wheel itself, will lock tighter when doing prop actions, such as 5050 on a pole.
