    Hey there zoho, you did not specify if you wanted to do tech sliding, or soft wheel sliding so I am going to list both varietys. (I'm also going to assume you are sticking with 70mm wheels)

    For soft wheel sliding, it's usually good to stick with 80a+ Durometer so most wheels are decent at sliding. Most wheels claiming to be 'freeride' are also decent at soft wheel sliding. Wheels with rounded lips instead of squared ones are also meant for sliding. Here are some examples:

    Loaded Stimulus Freeride wheel:


    These wheels are perfect for soft wheel sliding, they come pre-broken in so you get smooth slides right out of the box.
    They are also 83a meaning they will slide well, and still grip you down enough for higher speeds. You can also find these in a 75mm version and a 65mm version.

    Orangatang Stimulus Freeride Wheels 70mm 83a

    Retro Freeride 72m


    You can find these in three different flavors, personally I think these are the best soft wheel sliders. Choose between 80-86a duro. The higher the duro, the better the slide; but also the less grip.

    Abec11 72mm Retro FreeRide Wheels


    Sector 9 RF


    These are a really nice overall wheel, and cheap too! Once you break them in, they will grip amazingly well. Aswell as slide like butter even at a 80a duro. They come in a 70mm, 75mm and 81mm variety

    Sector 9 70mm Race Wheels Set of 4


    For Tech Sliding:

    Earthwing Slide A's


    If you want to tech slide, dont question it; just get these in my opinion.

    Earthwing 62mm Slide A Superballs - Set of 4


    But... next time...

    Let me google that for you

    I have the 83a Retro Freerides, and they slide suuuper smooth and drift so nicely you can't really notice it. But they are pretty harsh while just riding around, so if I had to purchase again, or was going to get things for rougher pavement, then I might consider the otang freerides.

    If you don't want to be stumbling over very small rocks and stuff, go faster.

    The 86a Stimulus doesn't feel much harder than the 83's when rolling, so you will be fine.

    Also, pretty much everything made in Abec 11 classic thane is good for this. Grippins and Flashbacks are my favorite. 78a or 81a work great, but I think I'm getting a set of 84a Flashbacks for some drifty madness next.

    Well if you want to be sliding at high speeds and not lose any speed say, doing a drift around a tight corner then you want to go with round lipped wheels but i like to have square lipped wheels because i slide to slow down. Its your own personal preference. I don't do to much racing so slowing down during a slide doesn't matter to much to me.

    true, but that doesnt mean you wont DESTROY soft wheels. ive destroyed (ripped out huge chunks) my soft wheels sliding around on campus, im looking at getting the Otang 70mm 83a stimulus wheels but cant afford them yet.

    i know this is an old post but i just had to say that
