What are the pros and cons between rubber wheels and urethane? It seems that almost all longboard wheels are polyurethane and I imagine it’s for better durability but how significant is the difference in durability (especially since car wheels are rubber)?
Right now, I have the 100mm MBS wheels, but I was looking to change to the honeycomb Boundmotor wheels. The advantages I can see is that the wheels are softer and since the roads here are pretty rough, that would make for a more comfortable ride. Also if the roads are slightly damp, I’ve heard rubber gets better grip on roads than urethane.
The board is just for commuting. I won’t be going off road or doing anything fancy. Are there any reasons to not get the Boundmotor wheels? What are the tradeoffs?
