Stoked on these. Set up some Streetburners before I put these on, skated them for a day and they felt so bad in comparison that I had to set these up. I prefer the 101 F4s that I had before this though.

The 99's are great on indoor parks and the 101's are really nice on street.

The F4 99's are one of the best indoor ramp and bowl type grippy wheels I've ridden, while not being too grippy, but not slick at all.
I've ridden em all on the indoor ramps and bowls and I really think the F4 99's hit the nail on the head for a great indoor wheel.

The 101's were too slick for a dusty bowl. They need to broken in more on street first then I'll try again.

Still tryna hold out for that next batch of PFCs...it's getting hard though.
just give it up homie, F4s are better. if PFC ever puts some new shit out and your strapped for cash then you can pick some up. but i can honestly say im pretty sure you wont be disappointed in F4s.

Responded to this with a post on my phone but it wouldnt let me submit it.  Suffice to say I imagine that the F4s probably are a bit better, but I enjoy supporting smaller companies whose ideals and direction appeal to me and are inline with my own.  I'm sure I'll get some F4s down the line (skating some old-ass Classics now) but my next set gonna be PFCs.

I rode a friend's board with bones on it yesterday just for a few minutes and all I have to say is that it felt awful

53 99a full formula fours are seriously the best wheel out there and worth every penny.  They ride great on shitty east coast terrain.

I love mine so much.  I have the 53mm 99d full shape.  They slide really easily but they aren't slippery.  I bust hella power slides cause my area is full of hills.  No flatspots, haven't gotten smaller yet.  They are much lighter and slimmer than my SFW .  Im sticking with these for sure.  I already loved spitfire.  These wheels just seal the deal though

If you want a slim wheel why would you buy SFWs in the first place?

My knee has been hurt for almost a month now, so I'm estimating i've skating my 4's for around 15 hours. Today I noticed that they are starting to feel a little soft and slow (with super reds). I pulled out my other setup which has STF's (with mini logo bearings) that I only skated for about 2 or 3 hours, they felt harder and faster. So for whatever it's worth, after about 6-7 sessions with Formula fours they are starting to feel worn down. I normally skate the same wheels for a couple months.

Thanks, yeah the super reds were new ((minilogos are actually a few months older), mine are the 101d. If i just spin the wheels with the board in my hand they spin fast and long, so i def think it's the wheels and not the bearings.

Ordered the 101 53mm for my birthday, can't wait to try them out. Had a pair of STFs for over a year and a half, and while they're still in decent condition I have to try these.
skating is all about choosing your outfit very deliberately, going out in public. looking super sick. and then riding your board a little bit

I am currently riding the 53mm classic shaped F4s for about 3 weeks now. Pretty solid wheel so far. All the good points have been covered already on how great the feel and slide. so far i have no complaints. i was riding the spitfire f1's for the past year which were a 101a and since the F4's are a 99 i can feel a difference. I wanna try the 101's next..

any one here made the switch from 101 F1's to the 101 formula fours? how does it feel?

I really want a set of 53-54mm 101 tablets but for some reason they just aren't available in the UK at all. I'm rolling on coned, flatspotted, worn-ass f1s at the moment and my resolve to not just buy some bones as I can actually get them is weakening more and more every time I skate. :(

I've said it before, but these are the best wheels out if you think differently you probably just got an unlucky random bad set (if they exist) or you just want to have something negative to say. I can't recommend them enough. 2 thumbs up

ight so i have the 99 full shape, and when i first got em they slid really well but after about a month or so they feel a lot softer and gripper and really dont slide that well in the streets at this point. do you think i should try the 101 classics next? do they feel more or less like streetburners? i want to be able to do long slides, but i hate that icy uncontrolled feeling..

Not tablet shape. I know I'm being picky but I'd much rather skate those as I loved the equivalent STF shape but much prefer the feel of Spitfire urethane. Shiner don't seem to have the tablets yet and they're pretty much the only way the UK gets DLX shit as far as I know. Also trying not to fuck with rollersnakes/r1 or any of that shit unless absolutely necessary.
