Large wheels roll better than small wheels.
Skateboarding trends are always changing. One that I just don’t get from my perspective is the still very common skating around with small wheels, which are very prone to getting stuck behind even smallish pebbles. It makes no sense.
If you’re ramping or bowling, two things I don’t do, small wheels are advantagious. Outside of that, larger wheels roll faster, roll over rocks, and are a more cushy ride, as the urethane is typically softer.
Here’s a great representation about wheel sizes from Animagraffs:
60+ millimeter wheels are my jam. And Juice!
