Break out the wheels, use the included pair of allen wrenches, one on each side of each wheel, to unscrew the nut from the bolt. Pull out the old wheel, orient the new wheel to suit you and reinsert the bolts and retighten with the wrenches. Tighten them snugly but if the wheel is being restricted (spin it as you tighten) then you've got them too tight. You'll feel a little tugging when you get close to the end of snugging them, like you're going over bumps. Keep going until you feel that. Check all four wheels for free spin and you're good to go. You can use a power screwdriver or other tool to remove the old wheels and bearings, but don't do that on the install as you may overtighten the wheel and damage the bearing.
These were also about the same hardness as my original 12 year old rollerblade wheels were, so they give about the same feel. Softer wheels give you a softer ride and turns, harder wheels give a hard ride but turn quicker and last longer. So soft wheels on wood floors/rinks, medium for recreational skating and hard wheels for street hockey players.
The mm size (72mm in this case) is the diameter of the wheel.Read more ›
