: : But this is interesting. The inliners skate on 88-90a. Is it that a wider wheel has more grip too?
: That's one reason. The other is that the wheels are in one line, not in two tracks.

yep, that's tricky because the sliding point depends also on the pressure (force*area) applied on the wheels.
Maybe as quads have a wider contact area and our trucks can impose a higher force, by tork effect, the harder wheels are needed? (This is an interesting subject for my students!)

Nevermind, PF or new school 95a skateboard wheels are magic: still grippy!!!! I learned ramp with hard artistic quad wheels (another hardeness scale), they were like stones (not the Claudine you know ;-), well like rocks if you prefer!!!

: Maybe I should call this site 4tracks ...
Origin8 is really good!!!! (In side stance it's 2tracks??)
