Faster, your theory is voided by habitat/aws wheels.

oxidation?  Pretty sure it's not sunlight.  I've had multiple sets over the years and they were in a closet or a drawer for 12+ months and they ended up yellowing.

oxidation has to do with exposure to oxygen.. nothing to do with sunlight

Nothing i hate more than yellow wheels (actually i hate rough edges on my deck equally), unfortunately i won a pair of wheels in a contest recently and in the dark they look bright green, like theotis beasley skates, but in the light they look bright yellow. Putrid.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm actually kind of fond of that dirty yellow color that wheels turn.  Maybe it's just from associating it with skating in general.

Yeah, I'm down with yellow wheels. What are you gonna complain about next, trucks that wear down when you grind them?

Whenever I get a new board I wait at least a month to do any tail or board slide tricks so as to preserve the graphics.

Pee in your mouth if you've got bad breath?
I take everything I said back. The board hit me in the nuts for the first time ever today, because i was wearing these shits.

wheel company wheels > board company wheels   

You made this claim already.  And you cited Hubba wheels as your example . . .

most Satori wheels are made with a non yellowing formula..
