I’m sure you’ve seen some of the amazing videos of people roller skating and doing all kinds of tricks. It looks so fun! But, if you’re like me, then it’s also intimidating—I don’t know how to do any of those things.

When I mentioned this to a friend who does roller skate wheels Australia regularly, she told me that learning how to do tricks on skates came with practice and that buying the right wheels and bearings would make my first experiences better. That got me wondering: What size wheels should I get? How many should I buy? What hardness are they? So many questions!

Why should I change my wheels?

The wheels on your roller skates wear down over time. They also get dirty, and can be damaged by things like breaking glass or being stepped on by a heavy person.

Wheels of different hardness than the floor of your roller skate rink, gymnasium or other place where you roll around is also something you’ll want to consider if it’s an issue for you.

How do I know what size wheels to get?

When it comes to skates, wheels are one of the most important parts. The size of your wheels will have an effect on how well you can skate, so you’ll want to make sure that you’re getting them sized correctly.

To find out what size wheel is appropriate for your roller skates, look at their sizing guide and use a ruler or measuring tape. Measure from where the top part of the boot begins (also known as its “cuff”) all the way down to where it meets with the bottom part of your foot in one straight line — this measurement is called “toe-to-heel.”

Once you’ve taken this measurement and double checked that it’s accurate using another measuring device (you don’t want a mistake like this!), compare it to what’s listed in their guide. If there’s no information available online about sizing, call up customer service or reach out directly via social media channels such as Instagram or Facebook Messenger if they’re open 24 hours a day (because everyone knows accidents happen).

How many wheels should I buy?

You need to buy as many wheels as you think you’ll need. Sometimes, it’s hard to know how many sets of wheels you’ll go through in one year. For example, if you skate once or twice a week, then a set of 4-wheeled inline skates will cost more than they should since they’re designed for use by people who skate at least three times per week.

 However, if you only skate once every few months (or once or twice a month), then those same inline skates would probably last for years without needing new ones—and that would be money well spent!

It’s best not to buy too many pairs at first because there are other costs associated with roller skating: such as buying new knee pads and wrist guards when yours wear out; purchasing new laces when the old ones break; and replacing any broken parts on your skates such as wheels or bearings.
