Anyone skate these wheels?
OK, think I will go with the ugly cockroaches lol. Least the graphics will wear off! But I think 60mm is a much better size for me and 96a will be plenty hard for me. I do some street so I still want my wheels to grip the ground enough to push off to get speed to the ramps and land jumps. If I went 99a, I would be sliding around on the ground. I think if I went smaller, I would lose speed too? Thanx dude!

Wheels I know nothing about really lol. But I just got some old 265s. WOW, they fit MUCH better!! They leather is twice as thick and soft as anything too. Whats up with the new crappy stuff? I want all the old 265s. I was told I could pry layers off the heel if I wanted it lower. Man, an old boot is much cheapier then custom made thin boots of today.

: Hey Claudine Cockroaches were origonaly made by Tim Dawe,the dood who now makes coretech,ect and I belive he bought the name back a while ago so I think they are made by him again,check his web site.Any urethane this dood pours is gold and you cannot go wrong,not to say your other suggestions arn't good but I absolutely back Tims ability and product(no I'm not sponsered by him).The rainskates are a good thing too and reletevely localy made (to you),check out there web site too for sizes and duros.Any info flowed on Bernhards site, I belive is quality from the horses mouth and can be taken in faith,unlike the rants of some board carying wanker working in a skate fasion shop.
: cheers joe
: : Can your trucks fit skateboard wheels? I had spitfires that were 54 mm 99A. I did not mind how small they were, but they got flat spots really fast. If you can fit skateboard wheels get the SPF's. Mine are so smooth and fast and I hear they don't get flat spots. When I had my narrow trucks, I could only use rollerskate wheels and I hated them because they don't make them hard enough and the hard ones are for indoors.

: : : Thank you, but isnt 54mm really slow? I have 64mm and they are too big, esp. for small people like me but good for outdoor skateparks. Hard for lip tricks. But I think 54 would be the opposite extreme?

: : : : our 5 year old, rory skates on rainskates mini bees 54mm a soft 98a , very popular with younger street skaters over here in oz . good luck, choose carefully.
: : : : : Any wheel 95a 60mm? I'm only half everyone elses weight so 95a to me is like 100a to normal people. I've been working really hard in my new job, love it, and want a smaller wheel as my treat to do coping tricks on these small ramps. :-D
