    Default Abec 66mm freerides vs Fatfree's

    So Im looking for a more slidable wheel for my mini, and I was think about these two wheels. and what I want to know most is wich wheel grips more and which is lighter?

    Personally, I don't like rolling around on the 66's I currently have. I say go with 70's, and get a harder duro. But that's just me.

    66 mm's wear away real fast, too, so don't get fat frees. They'll be gone in a month or two if you ride 'em enough.
    The closest I come to being black is surfing blacktop
    Because I have to keep my head cocked and watch out for angry cops.
    If not I'm burning on that hood white hot
    And I'm wondering what I did just to get myself caught.

    What about 66mm strikers? Im looking for a smaller wheel so I dont get wheel bite but I want one with a decent amount of grip but that can also slide nicely.

    The 66mm striker is the same wheel as the 66mm freeride

    Those wheels are all too large for a mini. Get some nimble 62mm Alligators or 61mm Street Snakes.

    So general consensus is abec wheels 66mm and under. And @ enemy combatant can you tell me how the street snakes grip?

    They have round lips and don't have that wide of a contact patch. If you want grip get 'gators.

    I want something with a fair amount of grip that I can slide when going down hills commuting.

    Snakes are good. So are 60mm NoSkoolz and 62mm Mid-Tsunamis.

    So those will work well for what I want then Cause I only really want to slide to slow down so it will mostly be speed checks.
