What are the best wheels on luggage? 

Choosing the best suitcase wheels depends on your personal needs and travel style. Spinner wheels offer 360-degree rotation, while inline skate wheels are more durable on rough surfaces. Look for larger rubber or polyurethane wheels, recessed into the case for stability and protection, but ultimately it depends on your needs as a jet-setter! 

Is a four-wheel or eight-wheel suitcase better? 

Both four-wheel (spinners) and eight-wheel suitcases have perks. While four-wheelers maneuver effortlessly in tight spots but might struggle on rough terrain, eight-wheelers offer better stability and weight distribution, potentially handling bumpy surfaces more smoothly.

Try both to see which suits your needs best!
