I am currently riding Devine Street Slayers and I really like them. Being new to downhill longboarding, does the surface area of the wheels make a huge difference? These wheels are pretty wide which i like, but i also rode the sector 9 slick shoes which have a smaller surface area and they feel really good, but i am sceptical to buy them because i dont know how they will act when i go to turn a corner at 40mph. Any ideas? Other wheels to try? Etc

wide contact patch mean more grip narrow is for slip
What do you mean by surface area? Like the contact patch?
Try Wheelrz Magic, they have a 52mm contact patch. They are ment for downhill.
