What kind've wheels are they? You likely wouldn't be able to cut hard on turns if they are outdoor wheels.

if they are standard wheels I would say you might notice some slippage

depending on your weight you will also notice problems during your stride as well

hmm, they seem way too hard
for indoor/smooth surfaces i use 74/76, and for outdoor i use 80A. its just more comfortable and smoother

If I played with 84a wheels on tile I would DEFINITELY be slipping all over the place, but I have always been very susceptible to playing with wheels that are too hard. May be my skating style.

Either way, I wouldn't play on anything harder than 76a indoors.

I have a mixed set. I use very sticky/soft wheels on the front 2 to allow me to push off and pivot without slipping...usually a 68.

The back two are harder, 72 to 76 to allow for some slide when I want to do a stop and also because they last longer.

I'm 170 lbs and I push off very hard so i tend to eat through those front 2 wheels quite frequently
