The size of skateboard wheels is recorded in millimeters. Generally speaking, the larger the wheel, the faster the speed, but the weight will naturally increase. The wheel also has a width value, which we rarely mention. Regardless of the weight of the wheel, the wider the grip, the better. Of course the wheels need to be matched with your board, and the smaller board is of course equipped with smaller wheels. So what’s the difference in the size of skateboard wheels?
Three differences in the size of skateboard wheels
1. Different speeds: Generally speaking, the larger the wheel, the faster the speed, but the weight will naturally increase. Small wheels are slow, which is the most obvious difference.
2. The grip is different: the wheel also has a width value. The wider the grip, the better the grip, and the cushioning will be better. It is more stable, and the skateboard is not easy to roll over. It is a good choice for novices. But the narrow wheel, because the contact surface is small, but the action will be very flexible.
3. The board surface is different: you need to match your board according to the wheels. The smaller board is naturally equipped with smaller wheels. Big wheels need to be matched with larger plates.
Before using the skateboard, the wheels should be adjusted to make it run freely. Use a lock nut to adjust the elasticity of the cushion according to your own usage. Pay attention to waterproofing, try not to let the skateboard get wet, and don’t slide on wet or rough roads. If replacement is required, the replacement should be adapted to the specifications of the existing accessories. It does not have to be exactly the same as the original accessory specifications.
