    Wheel Suggestions?

    It's been a minute since I last skated (18+/- years). Just before high school I was forced to choose sides, I stuck with the would pushing side.. Then it was racing MX.. And now ive decided to repeat the whole process over..

    i just scored a clean used set of K2 Fatty Pros on eBay but can tell from the pics that wheels are fully gooned out. Back when i was skating we didnt have all these options for setups and skates were just coming out that had a groove and H-block in the frames, we had to take our middle wheels to a belt sander and file our own groove to make what i think is now called a "rocker" setup? The skayes that look like giant shoes had just dropped a little after i sold my Oxygens...

    What should i be looking for in a wheel/bearing set? Im thinking i want the biggest that'll fit for cpmfort and stability, my shit is wrecked from racing so im not looking to jump massive double sets to flat. Mostly cruising with my lady around town and the occasional skatepark trip with the kids.

    I would prefer to buy from rollerwarehouse.com as they're local to me, that shit suddenly started to matter back when i hit 30.

    also if anyone could suggest a decent entry level kids skate? I'm sure my youngest will want a pair as soon as he sees me bust a dope soul grind on our little box and boost the kicker in our driveway.

    Thanks!

        I'd look at UC urethane or the GO wheels. If you are going to skate flat, the DEAD wheels have a really hard set that would be good for the inner spots while you can ride a softer set the same size on the outside (or just go all hard!)

          I like this idea. Wish I knew the max wheel i could fit in these... What about bearings? Whats the best bang for my buck? Would prefer sealed but a shielded/semi sealed would probably be ok
