    The no skoolz and freerides are made with Abec 11 classic thane. While some riders like 84a classic thane, the majority of riders find that the sweet spot is between 78a and 81 (grip, slip, and smooth slides).

    What kind of riding do you do or want to do? I'm guessing that you want slow speed slides given the duro's you're going after.

    ya i am going to be using it for slow, layed back slides and I am going to do some street tricks on it. I have retro big zigs in classic thane so they are not new to me

    Venom Street Snakes? I just got these, and so far they're performing incredibly well for street, pool, and ditch.

    I got mine from Edge, currently riding them on an Earthwing Jailbird with Indys. The whole setup feels pretty solid.

    You might want to look into Metro Micro Motions. Metro's generally get great reviews.

    A copy-paste from another thread that ask the exact same question:
    No matter which you choose I wouldn`t go harder than 84a. IMO the Classic thane from Abec11 doesn`t feel nice in the harder duro`s(unless you are planning on strictly sliding). I really like my 78a No Skoolz. Feels really plush and nice for a wheel that size; rolls great and have a nice smooth drift.
    For more info, here`s the thread: Abec 11 Freerides 66mm 84a or NoSkoolz 65mm 94a

    And, why didn`t you post this in your already going thread?
