Default Need Wheels!

Hello! Short story of my problem is that I used to skate heavily when I was 7-14 then stopped. I'm now 25 and picking skating up again, but my old skates don't fit me anymore and everything on them is shot anyways.

I bought some R3's last week because I'm a starving college student without a lot of money. The wheels on them (Radar Caymens) suck sooo hard. I've been out of the skating loop for well over 10 years now, so I don't know what wheels are -the- wheels anymore.

I only skate indoors on a wooden rink. I occasionally speed skate on my quads, but I want a nice rec. set of wheels where, if I chose to, could start to learn to jam again. ... Wheels that aren't $100 though.

P.S. - I got fat so I need wheels that are good/grippy enough for 195lbs woman.
