In the USA, most skaters use the 60D, while stepping down to the 53D or sometimes the 57D for the inside toe wheels as additional push wheels.
The softer the wheel, or lower shore “D” hardness number, the more the grip and slightly less roll. The harder the wheel, or higher shore “D” number, the more the roll, with slightly less grip. The shore “D” scale is used for rubber and plastics, while the shore “A” scale is used for urethane.
It is almost always recommended to use spacers in the wheels, when using standard 7mm bearings.
