What would you guys say is the best type of wheels for sliding, cruising, and just in general?

A good all around wheel are anything made by Abec 11 generally not too hard but has a great urethane mix for leaving those huge slides
@DragonAragon hotspots have a huge contact patch and are more downhill and push oriented, unless you're freeriding at 40, they'd be very grippy, but the defcon formulas are one of the fastest wheels out there. ATF these wheels have great roll speed for their size, but 80a 327s can get a little chattery in the slide at lower speeds. 82a 317s are great and consistent at most speeds and across most pavements
@Jlukasik has the right idea, my preference is BO Morgans/sugar mommas/flashbacks for freeride or 80a release if going HAM. For cruising I've really grown on s9 steamrollers for their weight and girth, you just keep on Rollin' like a steam roller, downhill I only ride Radvantages and These KRF. I used to ride 78a Venom Cannibals before both existed but they're slider than my Morgans when I go sideways so I switched to rad
Here are my favorite wheels for all the above. Downhill: Waterloo Rallies Cruising: Sector 9 race formulas. That urethane absorbs road vibration like magic Sliding: Rayne envies.
I had some 87 (I think ) flywheels on my old set up once they broke in they were amazing for sliding and they were huge nice and stable and great for cruising
