Urethane wheels - Plastics


What kind of urethane is this again?


Is there anything I can do to prevent cracking of the wheels? Is there some sort of conditioner/moistureizer?
- Does the cracking come from heat? (applying brake)


These wheels on my scooter are like $20 USD each
How can I make them/how are they made?


Is there anywhere I can go for a higher durometer wheel or a wheel that is better? Lighter/tougher



This is a great great great scooter, I highly recommend it. There is one from razor with even bigger wheels, it's got two bearings in the rear wheel which lowers resistance -- but it gets unstable when cornering.


Anything I can do to soup up my scooter? How big of a difference will bearings make, and what is the best bearing and why?

They don't open wrong, just look wrong in the thumbnails. I noticed that also.
