Skating them for 20 or 30 laps will do the same. But imo they don't grip as good as Matter new or old radius. Mpc's not making claims they're good for indoor. Trust me, you're in for more disappointment if expecting Mpc/Bont's to work indoor. I'm a fan of them for the road. Matter lx f2 indoor or any of their outdoor 125s work best for me when the floor gets too slick.

I am sure they will never be a great indoor wheel, but I refuse to pay over $30 per wheel to practice indoors especially when the hubs on the Matters are rather questionable. If these wheels were a little bit harder, they would be great for slippery floors. Remember the original Black Track wheel? There has never been a comparable wheel for slippery indoor conditions.

You shouldn't be paying $30/wheel for the One20Five outdoor wheels, now that Matter has the higher end G13 and Code White wheels. If you are, you need to find a better source to purchase them from.

Either that, or try the Matter Image wheels at $99/set. (http://universalskatesupply.com/prod...-profile-wheel)
