Bones makes spitfire obsolete. Unless they man up and put a flatspot guarantee on the F4's FUCK SPITFIRE

Even Darkstar can make wheels that don't flatspot, spitfire is a joke
you seriously blow
some people just can't handle the truth. they see the cool spitfire logo and hand over the moneys

I really do not like you
Bro, its fukkin true. Spitfires are garbage compared to Bones

Bones don't flatspot, spitfires do, end of story

sorry you can't afford spitfires that are better even though you have to replace them more often, and you have to buy shitty bones because they last longer. Length isn't the only deciding factor of which wheel is better.

This is what I thought before I got to try f4. If the final product is as good as the sample I got I'll never buy another wheel again
What don't you like about bones wheels? They have been good forever

Just don't see why people need to change a good thing
I got love for DLX, and bones are usually more expensive... don't know how f4  will be priced yet though

I'm aware that Tracer's a jerkjob but he is kinda right about the bones/spitfire debate, people just buy spitfire cause their favorite skaters ride for them and they have pretty graphics. If you like the smoothness of spitfire wheels there's a dozen brands out there offering the same shit.

Bones are cheap since they'll last you a good year or more depending on how low you can tolerate your wheel size.

Well when people get there hands on A set of the new formula 4 spitfire wheels, it won't be for image.
They're damn good wheels that in my varied experience both first and second hand do not flat spot.
Meaning over a dozen sets locally given to folks that destroy wheels on a regular basis that NEVER flatspotted them and continue to ride them until they come across another set.

Can't judge the F4 but when it comes to the F1/big head blablabla models it's a whole different story

I have experiencedthis too. but when you continue to ride em for a week or so the flatspot will be gone and doesn?t come back like with other wheels....

Past few months I've seen dozens of flatted stf's, right out of the gate too.
Something must have changed in the formula. No one usually had problems before.

the color of them just makes me think of unsold wheels sitting in the shop forever
Thats probably what they are, the dudes in marketing probably just said call it something cool like formula 4 and tell people they wont flatspot and we'll get rid of these shitty yellow wheels in no time

Like I said I didn't even bother with streetburners, I was never into spitfire before I got this wheel. but I've been riding a set of theese since July and they're the muhfuckin' truth!

Best wheels made!
 I have had 3 pairs they don't flat spot and i'll be damned they almost don't even cone.
The only reason I ever put on new ones was purely because i had more laying around.
you can punish them with month's of power sliding and hill bombs, you won't be bummed

They cant be that good if you've gone through 3 sets and there not even out yet.

Pretty sure samples have been floating around since last summer. Weren't they orange first?

 Wheels are wheels. Spitfire, Bones, PFC. They all ride the same, and end up the same way.

bones dont really flatspot unless you try to flatspot them, but they are too slippery

spitfires tend to flatspot easy but definitely feel the best

formula 4 = best wheel

i have to agree. wheels are wheels. the differences between performance is so meager that it doesnt warrant a ten to fifteen dollar price difference. i've rode satori, paradise, bones, OJ, etc. they are all about the same. the only exception to this is spitfire. they suck.

also, u guys should really buy wheels from smaller brands like satori and paradise. they are good wheels and warrant the support.

I've flatspotted Bones and Spitfires but Bones feel way too slick compared to Spitfires. Plus Spitfire's have better shapes than Bones, and they personally feel better to me. Plus I'm down with having flatspots so I don't mind flat spotting my Spitfires.

The only thing I didn't like about spits was white wheels turning yellow real quick, that's why I only ride colored ones now. Shout out to Darin for keepin me hooked up!

Yea, so if you actually read what I said. I did'nt "go through" 3 pairs. I just changed them out because i had more, I give them to kids at the park. So yes F4's are that good. Buy some dummies they are almost out

I just rode around on my backup board cuz it was in my trunk.
I can't stand the sound/feeling of bones stf anymore. 
my fourmula 4's still going strong, can't wait to get them in a conical shape.
