Question Outdoor wheels

So, I have Bont Semi-Race 110MM skates. I think they are the Generation 14 wheels from Bont that are on them. I tend to get about 2-3 months out of my wheels with rotation with about 6 miles daily or more abuse. But I am looking for a better alternative. I know those wheels are 84A. Which is good because most of my skating and training is on the street. I think my main question is can I get a better wheel that will give me alittle more time and durability but still have a good ride and performance. Suggestions?

I really like 88a for outside trail cruising. They are a little too hard for indoor. It works but tour wheels will under heavy pushhing

*Rb 10s with MPC VT XFirm or Powerslide Green Fothon wheels/ILQ9 bearings

Bont G4 Mints, if you can find them, are great for outdoor training. They seem to last forever. I have had good experience with the Atom One wheels (now Matrix), too, and they are cheap at $7 per wheel. Most of the banded wheels get pretty good life, but it depends on what you want for training versus racing. I train on a set of 110 Atom Ones that probably have 1500 miles on them. They aren't 110 anymore. I race on much newer Matter G13s that only have races miles on them. In theory, after a couple of races, those would be used for training.

Thank you for your replies. I am going to look into this. I really want to push myself to get to a higher level and I need to start somewhere. Thank you.
