ZaZa Wheel Company Italian Lavas come in at 70mm with a durometer of 80a and its contact patch is 40mm. After taking a few runs to break them in past their stone-ground surface, I found them to have a very smooth, consistent and buttery slide. Italian Lavas leave nice thick lines but I was suprised that they did not wear as much as i predicted them to. From a solid day of skating they wore about 7mm. The roll speed on these wheels is incredibly fast and would accelerate me as i initiated in and out of my slides, losing almost no speed. I highly recommend these, especially for the price. Make sure to pick up a set with some Zealous bearings at $46 with free shipping, they're a steal! You won't be disappointed.
