Abec 11 Big Zig vs Seismic Blast Wave. Wheels?

Ok, so im trying to pick between these two wheels

Seismic Blast Wave 78mm 80A http://www.exitrealworld.com/Shop/Skateboarding/Wh...

Abec 11 Retro Big Zig 75mm 80A http://www.exitrealworld.com/Shop/Skateboarding/Wh...

I cant decide between the two wheels, I just need something that is super grippy in any weather, I dont carve to much, just the basic stand up carving, but why I need an grippy wheel is because I do ALOT of wet weather riding, thers no way around it. Also can someone help me find the width of the Big Zig's that would be great.

Also of the two, what would be better for more of a cushioned ride on rough cement and climbing over cracks in the roads and sidewalks? Is there an huge diffrence between 3mm's? Thanks

    Neither of those are going to be grippy in wet weather. Best way to make grip in the wet is to cut rain grooves like these:

    The BigZigs would be better for a cushy ride, they have a smaller core and are wider.
