So confused about wheels
I just put in new bearings and I will let you know how it goes. I had a pretty good session today. I am going to get some of Rollergirls vert skates with the wide sure grip trucks. I wonder how long it will take to get used to the wider trucks. I am guessing they are a lot less responsive?

: Generally speaking, hard wheels are for smoother surfaces, softer wheels are for rougher surfaces. Ramps and bowls are usually metal, wood or finished concrete so a hardness in the 90's and up would give more speed (goes the same for speed skating). Whether you're inside or outside while you're skating is irrelevant. Below 90 hardness gives more grip and flexibility for handling pavement.
: If your wheels are still decent putting in new bearings will give the most noticeable change.
