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, an outer-layer resin and an inner indicator resin. The outer resin forms the outside of the wheel and encases an inner indicator resin. As the outer resin wears down, the indicator resin is eventually exposed; indicating that the meal has matured and needs to be replaced.
