. It seems as though your line bearings inside the wheel need to be changed. To do this you should: Use an Allen wrench to remove the axle from the front wheel. Pull out the front wheel. Remove the old bearings from either side of the wheel. They should pop right off if you use a bolt or something similar. Place new bearings on either side of the wheel. If necessary, use a flat surface for extra leverage. Place the wheel in the wheel frame. Use the Allen wrench to replace the axle. If your spacer is aluminium, tighten the axle bolts as far as they will go. If your spacer is plastic, tighten the bolts as far as they will go, then loosen them slightly. Spin the wheel to see how easily it rolls. If it doesn't spin freely, loosen the axle. If it wobbles, tighten the axle. Repeat the steps for the remaining wheels.

SOURCE: How to change a wheel on a roller-skate?

To change a wheel on your roller skate please do the following:

Unscrew and remove the axle bolts from the front wheel with an Allen wrench. Pull the front wheel out of the wheel frame. Remove the bearings and spacer from the wheel. All components should slip out together. Place the spacer and bearings into the new wheel. Place the new wheel on the wheel frame. Replace the axle and tighten it using the Allen wrench. If your spacer is aluminum, tighten the axle as far as it will go. If your spacer is plastic, tighten the axle almost as far as it will go, then loosen it slightly. Spin the wheel to see how easily it rolls. If it doesn't spin freely, loosen the axle. If the wheel wobbles, tighten the axle. Repeat the previous steps for the remaining wheels.

I need to convert these training skates to inline skates


Buy a set of training wheels, install them on skates. Also, look in the diaper aisle for training pants. Put them on outside of your pants, so people will know your "training" thus stay out of your way.

Buying roller skate parts can be expensive. How can I prolong the life of my skate wheels?


The inside of the wheels is usually the first to go - you should rotate your wheels so that the worn out edge is on the outside, this will wear the wheels out evenly and they will last longer.

I would suggest that you contact the store at which you bought the skates and either get them to exchange them for you or ask them to contact the company for you.

Converting Little Tikes Roller Blades


My nephew has these skates and I just converted them from the training position to the inline position. The skates come with a bag of extra parts that you need to make the conversion. Basically you need the same bolt that is used for the first wheel and the middle wheel since the back two wheels are mounted on a long bolt that doesn't work for just one wheel. If you didn't get these spare parts then you're probably out of luck. If you're converting to the inline position you might be able to just use the front and rear positions but the plastic frame may not be strong enough. Good luck!

Electric scooter support


Most electic scooters cruise well because they use the same type of wheel that are used by inline skates to minimize rolling resistance. The wheels are also about three times as large as skate wheels so they glide much better than smaller inline or skate wheels. Accelerate the scooter and cover ground.
