Default Wheel Can't su root

When I installed OPBSD I added a user to the wheel group during adduser - One of the things I noticed was that the user in the wheel group coudn't su root. (?)

So I run visudo and x-out # that allows "all users in group whell to run all comands" Is this the most secure way of doing things?

If I need root to use pkg_add or edit files; I su root and enter the passwd of the **user** whitout having to use the root passwd. This is a desktop system with no other users, is this the correct way?

TIA
