This retro style wheel from Santa Cruz is a great all around cruiser wheel with a smooth ride and high versatility. Whether you're cruising around town, filming for your friends, or dropping in at the skate park, this wheel has got you covered.

Wheel Profile

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


Stone Ground - Stone ground wheels slide easy as soon as you put them on. No break in needed.

Surface Type

Stone Ground - Perfect for freeride. With zero break-in needed, stone ground wheels slide much easier than smooth wheels, right out of the cellophane.


78a - The most common durometer we see amongst cruiser wheels. They have great grip for cornering and easily roll over cracks, small rocks and the like.

Santa Cruz Slime Balls Skateboard Wheels - black glow (78a)
You’re not going to power slide with these, but they are smooth for around town cruising and carving around.

I went up from OJ Super Juice 60 mm to these, the 66 mm, and it was a noticeable difference, and a smoother ride. Not positive if it's due to different 78a urethane formulas, or the increase in size. Wish OJ went above 60 to test, but they don't. Setup on a cruiser with 1/8 riser, bought hardware for 1/4 riser, but it didn't need it so I stuck with the smaller riser, lower's better if you're not wheel biting. I think 66 will be my new go to for cruisers, and these fit the bill without totally crossing over into the longboard company wheels. Paired with a 9" anti-hero deck and some indy's and I roll for days.

The Santa Cruz Classic Cruiser!

I got these in orange and pink and they just make any old-skool setup a dream to cruise in!
I like the almost conical shape that the 60mm has. Its compact and doesn't end up having overhang unlike the same-sized Hot Juice. The urethane formula is soft and rides like a dream, but doesn't squish down too bad on smooth pavement. This wheel has enough give and good rebound with its core and its urethane.
I will always have a backup in stock when it comes to Slimeballs.
