The 5 Best Skateboard Wheel Brands
We’ve created this quick-fire list of the brands that are currently produced the best skateboard wheels.
The list includes only brands where their wheels are known for being durable, looking cool, but also help to reduce vibrations through a deck.
We could’ve listed 10-20 brands here, but there are only 5 in our opinion that are worthy of being on this list.
If you roll with a purchase with any of these brands, you won’t be disappointed…a good set of skateboard wheels will last at least a couple of years.
- Pig Skateboard Wheels
This Year’s Best Skateboard Wheels
1. Pig Skateboard Wheels
Hey, who doesn’t like a Pig?
Pig have been making some of the best skateboard wheels for decades.
The Pig Natural Head, that are priced around $30 depending on what deals are on.
2. Spitfire Skateboard Wheels
My #1 pick for the best skateboard wheels is Spitfire; I just love them.
And it’s not just me. There’s a lot of online reviews praising Spitfire skate wheels.
I like the Spitfire Bighead in white, but they do them in black too.
Prices sit in the $20-40 depending on wheel type and size.
3. Bones Skateboard Wheels
If you’ve got any type of board that needs a set of custom wheels, Bones has you covered.
I can’t say I’m a massive fan of the design, but they are top-quality, no doubt.
The Bones 100s are the most popular in their range, and come in a tonne of sizes and colours.
Expect to pay around $30 for a set of 4.
4. Ricta Skateboard Wheels
Most of Ricta’s skateboard wheels are of fairly minimalist design, and I like them.
However, if you’re looking for something cool and unique, they’ve got something in their range just for you.
Check out their Crystal Clouds.
They are see-through and definitely the best skateboard wheels in their range.
I was expecting them to be a little more expensive, given the crazy design.
But, they’re priced at around the same as top skateboard wheels brands like Spitfire and Pig, at around $30.
5. Mini-Logo Skateboard Wheels
Mini-Logo are going to be your first pick if you’re on a tight budget and you’re looking for cheap wheels. You will literally not find anything better for the price.
Check out their C-Cut wheels.
They look basic, but you’ll be able to grab them for less than $25, which makes them around 30% cheaper than all the other wheels on the market today.
