Hi, I went fingerboarding around my neighborhood and found some sick concrete spots and skated them, but when i got finished fingerboarding, i noticed something. My wheels were scraped and now they are like rough and bumpy. Is there a way to like shave them or fix this or just help it?

This happened to me while having outdoor sessions
Just have a sesh on a regular surface like wood and it'll be fine happy

DON'T do this if you want to keep proper wheels in original shape.
i did this several times with techdeck wheels and the wheels' surface got a trapezium shape.

If you want to sesh outdoor a lot, maybe consider getting some wheels for that. Like a set of cheap China wheels you don't mind getting ruined, some metal wheels, ect.

Or just get a more expensive wheel that can withstand any surface.
I rode my Northwoods Snugs outdoors all Summer last year and they're still going strong. I'm sure there's also other wheels that are durable and good for outdoors.
