So heres the deal. I weigh 260 lbs and love to play hockey. The problem im having is that the stock wheels on my skates are rolling off of the hubs after 22 games. I play indoors on a wood surface, I am a beginner to intermediate player still learning how to skate well. I need advice on the best wheels for a guy my size. I will be using a HI LO setup (72/80) since my new skates are shot. Im not made of money, just signed a contract on a new house. Im under the impression that a higher durometer would be better for me regardless of playing surface just because im heavy. Anybody got some good info? Thanks.
