Plastics are the best in my opinion. They wear down fast though and so you will probably go through alot if you grind much. I would say Odyssey Plastic pedals. Ones like these...

If you order some from somewhere, make sure you get the right size.

Some people take the pins out of metal pedals on one side and grind on that.

There is also this but I have never used it. Some people have on here I think.

I have metal Odyssey JCs and do just this. I've only ridden at skate parks with waxed metal copings so I can't say how it'd work in urban situations, though.

The only bummer is having to flip the pedal with your toe to get the pinned side up... the pinless side gets a bit slippery for big trials-type moves.

I have ridin urban situations grinding with half hte pins out, I love it. I dont like having to after every no footed trick (spins flips) I have to make sure I have the right side up, but I have grinded haggard ledges on them before, doin the same things all the local punk skaters were :-D
