The G-Slides were built from the ground up to improve roll speed, slide-ability and durability. They have a low profile and feel at home on any type of deck set-up. Push, slap, grind, bomb and slide the hell out of them. Yes, they slide.

Wheel Profile

You may notice a discrepancy between what we designate a wide, standard or narrow and what the brands do. This classification is our opinion based on years of skating, as well as looking at the profile of the wheel as it compares to what we believe is a standard profile. You just have to trust us on this.

Wide - Wide wheels provide more traction and stability at high speed, so you'll be less likely to slip out of your line.

Surface Type

Smooth - Smooth wheels have a shiny coating on their surface that is commonly referred to as its skin or mold release. Smooth wheels are generally preferred for their grip and traction.


Soft Slide Formula (SFS) - The Soft Slide Formula (SSF) is faster rolling, and will outlast anything currently on the market. Super fast, incredibly durable, and they slide. SSF is a new paradigm, opening up even more of your concrete and asphalt cityscapes, roads, and hills to skating.


85a - Hard for a "soft wheel". These wheels have a fast roll speed and plenty of grip for pushing around town but are likely to lose traction around tight corners. You'll be able to roll over rough surfaces without getting hung-up on cracks or small rocks, but the wheels will absorb less vibrations than a softer wheel. Ideal for technical freeride because they transition into slides very easily, slide quickly, and wear slowly. Also a good filming duro as it's a bit faster than some softer varieties.

Urethane skate wheels generally range from 75a-101a, the numbers increase with the hardness of the wheel.

Most amazing harder slide wheels ever...

Slide extremely smooth and long without having an overly icy kick out. Ride is slightly hard (to be expected for a wheel with this core size and diameter) but has the most amazingly consistent wear pattern and flatspot resistance ever. Be prepared for your first few slides to go a lot farther than anticipated - I had to make sure to be a bit more upright on my board and less leaned out to keep it from getting away from me =)

Pavement crushers

Powell Peralta G-Slides Skateboard Wheels - green (85a)
These wheels are harder than longboard wheels but they still cruise straight through rocks, sand, streets, cracks, messed up alleyways, you can be on jacked up pavement and still slide on these wheels. They are a little slick at first and have to break in a little so watch out it takes a minute to get the feel for it.

These wheels are fast and hard they are very wide but look great on an old school setup. I have ridden many soft wheels these ride like spitefire 80hds but harder and faster. I wouldn't recommend these for a popsicle deck or for someone wanting a smooth ride, these are perfect for me and just what I wanted they ride like hard wheels but go over everything a soft wheel can. They come with treads the picture looks like its smooth it even states that in the description. They grip really well I hope once the tread wears down they will slide.

Too wide

Powell Peralta G-Slides Skateboard Wheels - white (85a)
These are way wider than the you would think. Basically longboard wheels. But they are fast and slide good. Just don't know what I'd ride them on cuz I wouldn't longboard ever.

I chose these over bones 85a re-issues. I found one small bubble by the inner core, no big deal. The 59's feel like 60's, squealing on my new indy sevens-I got to 30+mph and kept my line razor sharp.The tread is long lasting, I get traction and bounce, hesitant to slide, some sketching hasn't damaged it. Ollies fat and true. Got some slappy dabs, and they track like mad on top of the curb. Best for 1 minute runs downhill, turns any skateboard into a hill bomber. Been breaking them in all month.

Asked by JR on 3/2/2017
Are these good for bowl and ramp riding?
Answered by Danny M (Tactics Employee) on 3/2/2017
These will function on a ramp or in a bowl, but they are softer wheels meant more for cruising and traversing rough terrain.
