Diameter - Wheel height.  Smaller wheels accelerate quicker.  Taller wheels roll more easily over rough, uneven surfaces and have a higher top speed.

Width - Width measured at the widest part of the wheel

Contact Patch - Width of the portion of the wheel in contact with the ground.  Wider contact patches over greater traction.  Narrower contact patches slide more easily.

Style - Sharp lips offer maximum traction and are ideal for carving, pumping, downhill and slalom riding.  Rounded lips slide more smoothly are are ideal for freeride and freestyle.  Rounded lips also help wheels pass more smoothly across pavement cracks when commuting.  Stone-ground wheels slide more easily even when brand new.  Wheels with surface skin retain maximum traction.

Bearing Seat - Position of the wheel core where bearings are installed.  Centerset wheels can be "flipped" (mounted in either orientation) to promote more even wear over time and tend to narrow the boards footprint.  Offset wheels allow more freedom for the outerlip to deform and grip the road and tend to widen the boards footprint.

Formula - The urethane formula used to pour the wheel. Orangatang offers four proprietary wheel formulas.  Happy Thane (smooth, fast, high traction, buttery slides), Peachy Thane (balanced traction, high durability), Euphorethane (long slides, exceptional durability), and Perky Thane (smooth and durable for park and pool skating).

Durometers - Measure of wheel hardness. Softer wheels (77a-80a and lower) offer more traction and roll smoother and faster over rough surfaces.  Harder wheels (83a-86a and higher) slide more easily, offer greater durability, and roll faster over smooth surfaces.
