Smile Will this hurt my wheels?

Our garage floor is very smooth, almost shiny cement. It is clean & only has a crack or two but no pebbles, etc.

Do you think it would hurt my blazers to practice some jam moves on it? Now, mind you I am doing nothing fancy...this is all new to me & I can hardly do anything yet. I just was hoping to be able to have a place to practice & thought this might work.

Thanks

Nope. But any skating will wear down your tread.

However, unless you have a huge garage, you won't have enough room to really wear them down at high speeds. Your biggest worry should be grease/oil/liquids spills from your car.

LOL biffsk8er My Blazers are 25 years old & have no tread left on them at all anyway. I am getting new wheels soon, but for now the Blazers are my only ones.

No car spills on the floor, so I guess I should be a-ok, huh? Thanks

Now you tell me! : Well, other than the possibility of your wheels splitting apart from old age, my previous statement still holds true. And btw, you can get wheels regrooved (treaded). However, it is most likely not worth the expense on wheels that old.

You're welcome.

Nah...not worth regrooving these babies. I will just use them for things like this. At least now I can practice some of my "moves" (LOL) more than a few times a month.
