hard skateboard wheels rough ground?

hi guys, if you ride harder skateboard wheels on rough ground will they get worn out easier than soft wheels or does it just feel more comfortable. i like harder wheels better because of things like powerslides or tricks that wear the wheels down, but there are also some skate spots that have rough ground, i really don't mind the friction i just mind ifthe wheels wear down or not. so can i stay with hard wheels?

    No dudes, just no.

    First off, soft wheels on rough ground will shred up like a marshmallow in a wood chipper.

    Hard wheels on rough ground will make the board feel slow, and you'll get that whole vibrating foot massage thing going on.

    If you want a smooth ride with little wear on the wheels, you'd have to use longboard wheels, which of course are a lot harder to trick with.

    Medium-hard wheels are probs your best bet. Maybe a rating of 98a, something like that. Either way, if you powerslide a lot your wheels are gonna wear down regardless!
