The old advice was to skate new wheels on cement for a short time(30 minutes each set) clean, then they will grip. Fadt break in like this works. I risked the test on unknown wheels when I bought them, it all worked out.

I'm not sure if weight really does matter or not, all I have seen from experience is the harder wheels of the same line, may break loose the harder the duro is for a given floor. But setup has a lot to do with it too.
