Probably a dumb question and not really my dept, but I noticed this the other day and was curious. Dolly grip whipped out a new set of Porta Glides from the rental house and proceeded to set a PeeWee 4 on them. All was well except the PeeWee's wheels are smaller than the channels on the skates, so they rocked back and forth. The last time I saw these skates was with a bigger Fisher, and the wheels touched the sides of the channels. So are the PeeWee wheels smaller or did they widen the channel for some reason? The dolly grip didn't seem to be bothered, he just stuck a few wedges in there but it seemed like a pain to keep doing that all day.

Peewee wheels are smaller. You alwAys have to wedge them or get some inserts.
