    Depends on the surface.

    Soft wheels (74 or 76a) for sport court, Hard (80 -> 85a depending on your weight)

    for asphalt and concrete. Haven't been on a rollon surface enough to know what to suggest for that.

    If skating on more than one surface use different wheels. I can't over emphasize this!

    From what I can see, that frame can fit up to 76mm wheels. Years ago I had a pair of CCM roller hockey skates with a chassis similar to yours - all 76's gives more speed, but if you want to better stimulate an ice hockey blade feel (as well as better turning, stopping, stops + starts) put 2x76 wheels at the back of the skate, 2x72 in the front.
