jokes aside thats actually a pretty dope sticker job.

anyone here ever freeze their wheels? i'm contemplating doing it again with a new set of streetburners i got - i did it on my last set and now realize that they've pretty much remained at their original 52mm for the last year and a half

Thanks homie!

I did that with a pair of street burners, left them in the freezer for about 5 months. They lasted me way longer than I though I would and skated really good. I suggest you do it.

how would they last longer if you kept them at a low temperature for 5 months? if it's yellowing, it's caused by light. if you kept them in a dark drawer it would do the same effect. it's not like 5 months of freezing a wheel would have any effect for more than a few minutes on the wheel after it's been brought out from the freezer.

this, plus sheckler does freeze his wheels (or at least joked about doing it), yet it's another reason not to do it.

Having Shake Junt grip tape is not going to get you respect around here...

I had Shake Junt bearings and they were cheaper and far better than Reds, fyi.

spitfires lasting a year and a half?HuhHuh

Seriously. If your wheels last you a year and a half, at the same size, you're not skating hard enough. Bottom line.

The last wheels I bought were spitfire park burners and that was at the end of last summer when I flat spotted some bones and the only wheels at the shop over 50mm where those spitfires. The size has definitely decreased and they're pretty yellow, but it's a really weird flat spotting bones and then having spitfires last this long because they're both basically unheard of.

Yeah, because I am VERY worried about getting respect on an internet forum that doesn't approve of the free product I receive. Get real you faggot, stay in your lane.

Just got a new board and new wheels, I know everyone complains about spitfire but I had them for cheap last summer so as long as they last it's ok.



5 Boro 8.375 (really like the shape, I skated 3 8.25 Magenta in a row and the concave is a little bit mellower, bigger and rounder nose but smaller tail, I'm thinking about stepping up to 8.5)
Spitfire street burners 54 mm
Ace 44 with bones hard (no matter what kind of bushings I use they seem to be always pretty loose but It's ok fo me)
Mix of bones reds and a some other brand

Right now I'm sk8ing some Tonik S with gamechangers 2.0, the suede is holding up really well but i get a hole in the sole quickly than usual.

chris, enough with the multi-posts. You can address additional comments in the same post.

Oh and chocolate, for real son? it's griptape, pull the stick out of your ass. If shake junt grip was cheaper than anything else/free I wouldn't hesitate to snatch it.

Ditto.
Baker gets hated on every now and then but I've always backed the company.
I can never seem to find a baker deck in 8.5 though, no matter how hard I look around here. Do they even make boards in 8.5? Everytime I look online at deck sizes all their boards max out at 8.475 (not that .025 is that much of a difference at all in size, but still)

I like Baker as a company but I dont really like the shape and concave of their boards, which really bums me out since they are a rad company.

I really like my Aces, but I understand that the look isn't for everyone. They're really skinny looking. And the stock bushings have, at least in the past, fallen apart pretty quickly. But no matter which pair you buy you should equip them with Bones bushings, so that doesn't really matter. Aces might also feel a bit more loose than Indys (which is good), but I haven't actually tried Indy stage10s, so I don't know why I'm even writing this ... anyway, bottom line, Aces are good.

About to go skate this.



Magenta 7.875. The shape is perfect.

Thunder Hollow Lights Hi 145's. I was so over the way Ventures turn and I wanted thinner trucks. It also worked out cheaper to buy these and have them shipped to my country from the US than to buy standard Thunders in this country.
