Depends on the height of the trucks (distance from the sole/plates to the axles), you might have to take some material off the inner edge of the wheels so that they don't acts as brakes in curves (dangerous), or use wider hangers.

You could try some Kryptos around 70 mm, if they are soft (not soo soft) and large they will be faster, more silent, and more comfy on surfaces which aren't perfectly flat, eg older streets or streets with little stones on them etc. (large and soft wheels are slower on perfectly flat and hard surfaces such as ramps, harder wheels are faster then)

Skate safe,
