Best Skateboard Wheels


The Top Ten

1 Spitfire

Spitfire wheels look so awesome and they ride so smoothly.
Team: mike mo erik ellington shane o'neil and many more

Spitfires are the best wheels I have ever skated. Period. They never flat spot and they all offer an insanely smooth and fast ride. I have skated on some of my friends wheels before and they are no where as near as good as spitfires are. You can't go wrong with any spitfires you buy. I have 53mm formula 4s (101a) and I've had them for a year and they are probably 52mm now! They will never wear down you can skate them forever! I would recommend spitfire wheels over any wheel you can buy because they are the fastest, smoothest, longest lasting wheels on the market.

Spitfire skateboard wheels are extremely popular. Spitfire wheels are made in the USA and guaranteed against defects of any kind. Spitfire wheels are high quality, and I highly recommend them.
When it comes to selection, Spitfire has it. If you are looking for fast, try Spitfire's Firelight Core wheels, with built in airflow vents. Some people think stuff like this is only a gimmick, but other swear by 'em. Want to shave off weight? Try the Ligherer wheels, with their mini-cores.

Spitfire is the best, totally sick-ass designs. I go really fast with them and they are super smooth. Iv'e had them forever and they just get better!

2 Bones Skateboard Wheels

Bones are far better than ANY wheel and that's a fact. They don't flat-spot, they slide well and if you don't mind the waxy white look of the urethane, they stay white.

If money wasn't a factor in my decision I would say Spitfires because of how they slide. Unfortunately they flat-spot way to easily. Even the F1 Streetburners end up flat-spotting in the end. Their good in the streets don't get me wrong but the thing with the F1's is their too slippery on anything that isn't asphalt.

bones are beast. I have a se and they are smooth as hell. any other wheel doesn't add up. they are so good for street skating!

Bones wheels are amazing! Definitely a great buy. I love them so much and I've had them for 2 years. Spitfire? Not the way to go. I had a pair and after a month they had huge flat spots

They last long and don't wear down like most wheels most important they don't stick on grinds and slides and that is a fact

3 Ricta

Best Wheels I have boughten. I had spitfires and they were completely worn up to the bearing within a month or 2. I got rictas and they have lasted good for 8 months and still going. Also they were the same price as the spitfires just mentioning.

Ricta wheels are THE BEST. I never thought they could have made wheels so good in my life. they are smooth, perfect hardness, great for speed, make sure you try out these wheels, you will not regret it.

I've had a pare of Ricta wheels for about 2 years now. They are crystals with chrome 99a 53mm and they still skate great. They never flat spot and I power slide to stop 30% of the time and they are pretty smooth for 99a. These skate great, never gonna stop buying ricta because they last for ever and they are super smooth. They also look pretty cool, how they are translucent and chrome on the outer rim.

RICTAS ARE FAST AS HEL. THEY COME IN DIFFERENT STLES THEN OTHER WHEELS. AND THEY ARE SO CHEAP. 40$ for chrome inside, so cheap. I have like 5 or 4 pairs of ricats. I also have some spitfire and they suck on vert. and they are so tiny now. buy rictas

4 OJ Wheels

I've had spitfire and OJ. I prefer OJ because their faster, they last longer(bits of metal and stone don't appear in the wheels as quick).

Used OJ's with Bennett trucks in the early to mid 70's as I
recall the timeline, our skateboard team skated on an amazing half pipe we built of plywood, rode some empty pools, skateboard parks, and a lg fiberglass skate park, mostly pleasure riding & some competition
We bought & made some skateboards, good memories...

These wheels are really sick and ride very smooth

On wheels. Solid dope

7 Element

Element wheels are the BEST wheels for street skating.

That would have to do with your bearings fool not your wheels it depends on how great your bearings are for the wheels to spin the better bearings you have the more the wheels spin bones ceramics are some sick bearings

Worst wheels I've ever bought. Spitfire is the way to go

I think these wheels were smooth and easy to ride on

These are the best wheels money can by if you skate street

9 Mini-Logo Wheels

I think ML's are pretty cool. The Logo isn't so Radical but their A-Cut wheels work pretty nicely. They slide great too! Their cheap wheels for, not perfect, but great product quality!

The best wheels ride like a dream and the sliding is awesome great product for a really cheap price

Mini-Logo is the exact same wheels as Bones, made in the same factory and everything. They just have Mini-Logo Printed on them intead of bones.

10 Landshark

As fast as spf. No flat spots. Really grippy once they are broken in.

The Contenders

11 Darkstar Light Knights

Darkstar Light Knights are possibly THE BEST wheels I've used ever in my life.

They are so light and they look really cool.

They don't wear down that fast and they're thin and smooth.

Smooth ride, and the middle of the wheel has the awesome darkstar warrior head thing. Awesome - tidymanUK

Its what I use

Ok first thing darkstar don't sell completes at Walmart 2nd your a good company great wheels and an ok deck sell at better place like real skate shops then maybe Your reviews wouldn't be so crappy

Darkstar forever. by the way, element skate wheels cannot stay spinning for 3 minutes, its morelike three seconds. see ya skaters;

26 Alien Workshop

27 ATM

Known as ACID, these are the best wheels, grip and break when needed

The best

28 Enjoi
29 Powell

Soft slides are best street wheels for UK. Period.

I love Powell Peralta wheels. I will be honest they don't make the best street wheels but they make the hands down best vert/bowl riding wheels there are. They are the original classic old school brand for skating boarding out there and they make amazing oldschool wheels. I've tried skating spitfires for vert but they just aren't as good as Powell peralta. I love spitfires too and they are my favorite wheel for street and I think they are the best but mostly I skate vert and from my experience Powell peralta wheels are the best you can buy for vert skating

Really smoothe

30 Zoo York
31 Enuff

Come on its got to be enuff cause they're great for street and amazing at power slides I easily recommend enuff wheels with some fast bearings

They are ok for your moneys worth probably the best wheels you can buy for under £20

32 Better Skateboard Wheels

Best. I have 54 mm. Lasting for a long time.3 weeks, threading is still in them. They slide great, no flatspots yet. Best wheel I've had. And cheap too. Custom graphics! Get some.

33 Shark Wheel

Longer lasting better grip and better slide control.probably the best on the market right now. The company has over4,000,000 in sales

34 TGM

Greet got flat spots in 2 months

Very smooth wheel. Not bad wheels

35 Chocolate Wheels

Got them

36 Speedlab Wheels

Great for bowl street and vert skating. Feels like a soft wheel when it is a hard one. Powerslides are amazing flat ground with these. Get this smaller brand and check out the team.

37 Orbs

Should be number one

I love welcome and orbs they go together perfectly

Seriously why are orbs way up here orbs are great for street park and vert. They don't flatspot and last forever. U should try them out.

38 Pro Company Wheels
39 Almost Wheels

The wheels of almost are good, there is a lot of soft. They are also narrow
