mine are 84A on the hardness scale and have worked well for me.. no real wear on them and i toast normal wheels incredibly quickly. i'd say the harder the better

Personally, I find 84A to be too hard but that's the great thing, different players have different preferences and lots of options. When playing indoor I find 76a-78a is about the right durometer. I play outdoors in a tennis court too with 84a's and sometimes those still slip out on me even on a hot summer day.

Oh and if you're looking for a brand I'm partial to Hyper wheels.

There are a lot more factors at play here to determine what durometer you actually need. What type of surface do you skate on and what is your weight? If you are on sport court then a 84a wheel is going to be way to hard no matter what your weight is. Indoor wheels need to be between 74-78a.
