@Xen how are the regular conicals compared to the full ones? planning to buy one

The Fulls are wiiiiide as hell, I felt them too wide. Conicals are a great size (if a bit too wide for me still).

I guess it would depends on what you are skating them on? I couldn't really see a need for the Fulls over the regular conicals honestly.

I might be in a minority here but I prefer the slip to grip ratio of the conical wides 99s over the classic 99s on all terrain.  Hope to try some Radials soon.

Radials are my favorite shape by far (just wish they were thinner).

Spits are pretty wide wheels, even the classics.

If you skate icy floors, the 99s are going to be your best bet (and rough streets). I'm riding the Ricta NRGs (Sandovals) and find them perfect, just a tad grippier than F4s but thinner.

F4's 5 months of use
once 54mm classics 101 duro, now they're 40 something and tablets
never had a problem and still roll smooth
f4's rule


third set ten months later same size shape etc, these held longer and didnt get as small
i <3 spitfire


I just want everyone to know that I'm only 32.8% skateboarder, and that's on a good day. The rest is just soy and cum.

yes best wheeels for sure dude! i got the luan conicals. never going back to thin wheels again i was skating the ricta nrg's brandon westgate before the spits <3 the control is crazy on these wheels slide to grip ratio is trueee

now im curios about the 101conical fulls how is it compared to regular conicals 99 duro? 99duro conicals are slidy enough for me on street and parks just curios about 101's and ive seen fask8fucks/supreme kids rockin the conicals peep the "SICKNESS" vid correct me if im wrong tho those look some conical fulls and regular conicals to me

Set up my new board tonight with 52mm conical fulls in the 101a duro

These wheels are sick as hell. It's almost weird how easy it is to control the slide, different than anything i've ridden before.

Spitfire is fucking garbage, dont believe the hype. It took them 20 years to build a wheel that might not flatspot, yet they still don't have any guarantees? Don't support those scumbags

Look back in the earlier pages so many flatspots and problems. Get bones, darkstars or wrecks

It's basically just company men and trend hoppers bumping this thread. Everyone knows Bones and Wreck makes great wheels, so a 40 page thread isn't necessary for them.

darkstar

Truth be told, I rode a set, back with the first Tensors (with the slider) they were hard and didn't flatspot :\

Zero board, tensors and darkstars buwhahahahhaha

I'll just leave this here for all you 'thin' wheel dudes..



Was able to look at these in a shop today, shape is sweet, much like the AB Nexus/Wreck Slim/Skinnier Bones V2. I'll bite once the F4s roll out!

I skate in rougher asphalt and stop with powerslides. I wanted to know if you recommend that I go with 99 or 101 duro wheels and what would be a better shape. I currently skate the 99 Classic shape.

I've only skated the 99a Conicals (to much grip for me), 99a Classics (perfect for park) and 101 Classics (slippery in some parks and a little rough on the street) but it seems like the 101 Conicals would be perfect for what you need.  They'll be a little rough but if you powerslide alot, they will be hard to flat spot and will offer you a lot of control

i skate roughs 99a's are pretty chill you could still slide but a lil tiny bit grippy works for me but 101's for sure are better on streets

99a will feel better travelling on rough asphalt, but not by much. Remember, we're only talking 2 levels of duro here 99, 100, 101 - the real difference is the grip, which I assume is more based around the formula than the duro as the 99s still slide great.

Radials are the hybrid shape, not so round as the classics and not so square as the conicals, it's as if they took the classic shape wore it down and  rounded the lip.

Still wish they were thinner ;)

I can only imagine how good the powerslides will feel on those. Now I need tissues

switched from crusty hand me down bones SPF wheels to 54mm 99 blue conicals and let me tell you those boys at spitfire are on to something.

smooth ride, feel great on street.  Its hard to describe but I prefer these wheels outside the park.  Very fast, very smooth but not in a cruiser wheel soft sort of way.  Nice lock in too, almost hung up lapping over on a smith.  A littttttle bit slippery in the dusty ass park compared to spf but that slide and scroitch  :o  I could also see how chipping could potentially be a problem but i'll report back later

i picked up the conical full 58mm formula 4s since i always figure why not get the biggest wheel for your money. they are wide as fuck. and i'm gonna need to dig out my 1/8" riser pads that i haven't used since my first set-up.

Some classic shape 99a's in 55mm need to happen. I'd ride the fuck out of those.

That's basically what these are, only .5mm bigger: http://socalskateshop.com/index.php?l=product_detail&p=47569


Go bomb a hill and power slide a bunch and they are 55s.


I'm riding them right now. Nice wheels.
