Abstract

The present invention is an apparatus of an in-line skate wheel including a wear indication system. The wheel wear indication system incorporates a hard plastic wheel hub and a plurality of concentric wheel resin layers of various colors. As the outer layers wear away, the next color is exposed. A corresponding chart decodes the degree of wear the wheel has undergone based upon the color of the resin visible at the wheels outermost edge.
