    It really depends on your style of skating. I use 51mm because I first used it, and gotten used to it. Now, if I were to try 52 or 50, I would be weirded out because of the SIZE and the WEIGHT. I would suggest 51mm, because if you jump to a way bigger size so fast, learning tricks will be harder because you are used to the smaller size. I would suggest you get Ricta Superstars 51mm because they'll probably have the same weight as your old 48mm and its a good all-around shape/wheel

    try to stay close to the same size and weight our used to. i ride 52mm, because thats what i started out with. if your looking for a brand, id go with spitfire or rictas. otherwise, you should stick to the wheels you're most cocmfortable with, and make sure theyr good for the style of skating you prefer.

    happy skating

    dude, i've never noticed a difference, personally. I like blanks better (wheels, never boards..) simply because they're cheaper, and wear just the same. brands may be a *bit smoother* but not by very much. i'd focus on your bearings first before brand wheels.
