From what I can tell the wheels are about as hard as you can get at 90A, 57mm dia.

These are what came on the Razor SL Reds I bought at the weekend, I was thinking I would probably try going up to a 64mm wheel at some point, as that is the maximum size they allow. And would be plenty much big enough anyway.

I managed a sly 5 mins at a concrete park yesterday before it started raining and my guess is that on a smooth surface they wouldnt wear anyway near as quickly. It is probably the combination of my heavy weight, a rough surface and only turning one way that cause the noticable damage.

Is it better form to do a 180 jump to switch direction rather than the spin turn that I know from quad skating? Because I can see that that would be quite a lot kinder on the wheels.
