I'm weighing in at 215 pounds.


the 103s are harder then the 101s and will slip more. the darker the color of the wheel the harder it is, the whiskey color is softer and the black and blues and red are the hardest because of the pigments added to color the wheels. good luck with them. elites roll a little smoother because of the hub.
