When do I have to replace my skateboard wheels?

Skateboard Wheel Wear and Tear

Uneven wear in your skateboard wheels can be a cause of performance loss, so check your wheels regularly. Wheels that have developed flat spots or have become smaller than the other wheels can decrease your speed. Polyurethane, over time will begin to discolor too, but that doesn't seem to affect their performance in the least.
