At website http://inventorspot.com, Joshua Khan has posted pics of wheels from what he says are "The 10 Best Companies That Create Skateboard Wheel Designs."
Khan's list may not be exhaustive (in fact he only lists eight companies), but the designs are certainly highly attractive - and in the case of the ones shown here, look good enough to eat.
Skateboard wheels, usually made from polyurethane, come in many different shapes and sizes due to the different types of skating, Khan points out, adding that design innovation is not limited to appearance, but also to other parts and fittings.
With smaller wheels, the board is closer to the ground, allowing street skaters to perform tricks more easily, while larger wheels roll faster, Khan said.
