Skateboard wheel diameter is measured in millimeters (mm); most wheels range from 50-75 mm, and the lower the number, the smaller the wheel.
Wheel diameter also affects how quickly you accelerate and how tightly you can turn. Smaller wheels result in a slower ride, whereas larger wheels result in a faster one. And because they’re lower to the ground and typically easier to control, smaller wheels are ideal for technical or street skating. If you’re a beginner or someone who uses a skateboard as daily transportation, you’ll want to look into larger wheels instead. Their increased diameters offer speed and balance all in one, making them perfect for low-key cruising or vert skating.
Additionally, your height and weight can affect what size wheels feels right for you.
50-53mm Small, slower wheels; stable for trick riding and smaller riders skating street, skate parks, and bowls. 54-59mm Average wheel size for beginners and bigger riders skating street, skate parks, bowls, and vert ramps. 60mm +
Specialty riders skating longboards, old-school boards, downhill, and dirt boards; made for speed and rougher surfaces.
- In addition to size variations, skateboard wheels also come in different shapes, or cuts, including narrow or wide lip, and cruiser wheel shape. If you’re looking for a ride with less friction and weight, the narrow lip wheels are the way to go, and can help you master that next trick because they’re much more responsive to quick movements. Conversely, beginners and commuters will be more likely to invest in cruiser wheels because they tend to have the best grip as well as rounded outer lips. But, if you’d like an option that includes the best of both worlds, consider standard wide lip wheels; though less inclined for speed than the narrower models, these are sturdy and balanced, making them an asset to the average skater both around the skate park or on the street.
- Durometer measures the skateboard wheel's hardness, which can in turn specify if that particular wheel is better suited for skateboards or longboards. Most manufacturers use the Durometer A Scale, which is a 100-point scale that quantifies how hard a wheel is. The higher the number, the harder the wheel, although the average wheel durometer is 99a.
