Can you put any wheels on inline skates?
There are many factors to consider when trying to find the right set to match your needs. Skating surface, weight, and temperature are just a few details to consider. Most frames are designed to handle a certain wheel, whereas others can accommodate different sizes to grow with your skill set while you build your confidence on skates. To find what is recommended for your skate you can look for the two to three digit number printed on your frame.
Can I put smaller wheels on my inline skates?
Each skate manufacturer will offer a range of recommended options. Keep in mind that if the wheels are too small the brake will engage on its own, which is a saftey issue.
Are bigger wheels better on inline skates?
What could happen if I change my current set up for larger set than recommended? When going for a larger wheel set than suggested you risk the wheels rubbing on the frame and each other.
