Default Skateboard wheels for outdoor quads

Hi everyone

I've just come over to Bali for a holiday and there are a LOT of skateboard shops here, I was wondering if anyone knows of good skateboard wheels for outdoor quads… I have read other people on this forum using skateboard wheels. I'm looking to get different wheels for my Starfire 500's, so that they can last me till I get my next skates. I don't have the skates with me unfortunately, as the streets are pretty dodgy and I knew I wouldn't skate. Also as a complete newbie I don't even know what width wheels or axel I would need… so sorry for the newbie-ness.

Any recommendations would be great!

I haven't seen any skates here yet, but I've only glances in windows… but fingers crossed that I might actually find a better pair of quad skates haha. Chances seem slim though.

For recreation skate check the Zombihawks http://hawgswheels.com/zombie/, for speed the Orangatang Balut (1st choice if anywhere available) or Moronga in 86a http://orangatangwheels.com/wheels/moronga-72-5mm.html.

They are 76mm or 72,5mm tall, check first if they would fit under your plate without getting any wheel bite. It you need them for just cruising and you are not that heavy, you can also choose a lower durometer than 86a.

Cheers Gero

One other thing to think of: Moronga and Balut have to be cut of by a lathe.
Zombie Hawgs are sideset and will work out of the box, they are just a little wide.

Default Kryptonics Classic K

You can also use the Kryptonics Classic K. They are discontinued, but can be still found in some skateshops. They are available in 76mm, 80mm and 85mm. I have three sets (76, 80 and 85) and all of them could be used in Sure-Grip Avenger plates. However, in the Powerdyne Arius (as an example) you can only use 76mm (or lower wheels).

Note that the Kryptonics can be used out of the box (you won't need a lathe to cut them) and also they have 8mm separators (instead of 10mm, like most longboard wheels).

I wrote some posts a time ago... in Spanish, but including some pictures:

Kryptonics Classic K 80mm
http://www.guillesql.com/Articulos/K...ic_K_80mm.aspx

Kryptonics Classic K 85mm
http://www.guillesql.com/Articulos/K...ic_K_85mm.aspx

They work very good, but they are soft (78a - 80a). I'm now looking for a new set of wheels harder, maybe the Z-Hawgh 86a... not sure yet...

Regards,
Guille

They also exists in 70mm and it's a really really good choice : it's a good mix between agility and speed

A good 70mm is the RAD Glide. Available in 3 duro. A bit expansive though.
