Which Orangatang Wheels should i get for my Longboard Skateboard?
I am trying to decide between the 70mm 4President 83a or the 80a, vs. the 70mm Stimulus 83a.

Somethings to know about my longboarding stats, I ride a S9 Joel Tudor Platinum Series 38inches in length, with Gullwing Charger 9" trucks, the wheels i already have are the S9 65mm/78a Top Shelf Wheels, with Abec 5 bearings, and i just bought a set of Bones Reds Bearings(still in box) to put in either the 4Pres, or the Stimulus.

To add on im also 5'4, 140 lbs. and i would say im a pretty good longboarder, i mainly commute around the george mason campus, and i like to go down decent hills.

I would just get the cheaper orangatangs, for your purposes the durometer of the wheel is really no big deal. If you are a good longboarder, any set of top notch wheels would suffice. If you're into sliding, get 83a for increased traction nd control but if not, just go with 80a to help with better cruising.
