Longboard wheels have a small hub, or core, inside it. Skateboard wheels also have this. This allows you to put bearings inside of both of them and can interchange what trucks you put on it.

Another solution is buying harder bushings for less turn and lean.

What is faster skateboard or longboard?

A longboard is altogether faster because a longboard has larger wheels and bearings... so it can go more distance with less speed. For example, if you roll a penny and a quarter two rotations the quarter's going to go farther than the penny because a penny is smaller; so imagine skateboard wheels/bearings like pennys and longboard wheels/bearings like quarters. Longboards are also going to go faster because they are meant for downhill because they are more stable because of their length and wide trucks; wheras skateboards are normally meant for not serious downhill runs, more ramps and street obstacles.

Where can you find bearings on your skateboard?

The bearings are usually silver looking discs that are in the wheels. They can be any color, but since they are usually metal, the most common color is silver. When you assemble a skateboard, you have to press the bearings into the wheels before you put the wheels onto the trucks. This is what gives you speed, not the wheels. Bearins are rated usually ABEC 1 - 7 (except for bones). Basically, the higher the number the faster they will be, but also the price.
