So a few friends and I plan on longboarding down The Dragon's Tail out in North Carolina, but none of us are quite sure what wheels and such to get to ensure that we don't get speed wobbles. And on top of that, we don't know how much the gear will cost. Any help or suggestions?

Wheels don't affect speed wobbles, it's all your trucks tightness and the position of you on your board, and the speed you're at. But if you're doing downhill look for square lipped wheels that aren't broken in, like the Orangatang kegels. Definitely know how to slide. And definitely have safety gear, helmets, pads, the works.
@BrendonHolmes You should look into getting some bearing spacers, they let you tighten your wheel all the way in without constricting your bearings.
what board do you have now?
Bro. do you even drift?
@steezus yea, a few of us are going to save up money and then about a month beforehand we're going to go out and buy it all. @VictorEnriquezJ yea man, it's definitely not fun to bust your face open going downhill. I figured we'd go around it the day before and look at it all.
