Smooth wheels that are not worn down will make a skateboard go smoother and faster.
Also make sure the skateboard wheel bearings are good and not bad.
Washers help skateboard wheels spin smoothly.
A complete skateboard has a total of eight bearings - two inside each of the four polyurethane wheels.
They look like rings with small steel balls inside.
Bearings fit into either side of the wheel and allow it to spin smoothly on the axle.
