cult are quite durable wheels. try to not let your board go completely 90 degrees to the drop of the hill, keep it at a slight angle, that will help keep your wheels turning while sliding and should prevent flatspots from happening.

it is annoying yes. cults are known for not flatspotting that easily though.

Do the wheels make a difference in stand up slides and ground slides? Coz every time I do stand-ups they seem to not be as smooth and responsive as when I do ground slides? I'm broke so my friend gave me these gunslingers. I just want to know is it my technique more than anything else or do the wheels matter?

well, everyone will tell you, you can slide any wheels. i do believe however you get a bit more traction on standies vs hands down, as with hands down, you've got less weight on the wheels.
