A few electric skateboards offer to switch between street and all-terrain wheels, which gives you great flexibility. For other skateboards you have to decide before you buy it.

You should think about where you will ride your electric skateboard most of the times and even if it is on a street, check how the surface is.

Once you know where you will ride your electric skateboard, you can choose the right wheels and pick the right board which works best for you. Most of the people ride 80% of the time at similar spots. I have seen dudes who just wanted street wheels (as it is cool), but ended up carrying their board half of the time.

On the street

Streets are not all the same. If you have the perfect surface on a street or parking place street wheels are probably your right choice. They give you better feeling for the board and you can make smarter moves. However, a lot of times the street surface is not perfect and has wholes, small stones or dirt. In this case you better ride with all-terrain wheels. Of course you can also ride with Off-Road wheels on a street, but the fun factor is pretty low.

On Gravel Roads

If you have a very good road you might be able to use your street wheels, but it is highly likely that you will have a better experience with all-terrain wheels.
