lol jokes aside i have a set of busenitz street burners pretty much unskated from like 6 years ago, those fucking sucked, spitfire stepped their game up for sure, still sticking with bones pretty much for the color, spits yellow out faster, better grip though.

We have yet to see the profile in a photo. Hopefully they are narrower than classics.

Was hoping for the Daewon shape.

yeah woulda been nice to see a side view of the wheels
Got an early set of radial slims.
Side by side with classic cut f4

I actually prefer a more yellowed wheel beats your wheel looking like it came straight off a Toys R US complete

I was hoping the slim part they were talking about would be the riding surface. I guess I just can't skate spitfires.

I feel like the riding surface width on classics gets a few mm wider after a week or two of skating anyways.

I went ahead & grabbed the 101a Conical Fulls I was asking about. Skated them @ Lakeland (concrete) for a few hours this AM. I'm not good enough to have any really nuanced thoughts, but they managed to be hard, loud & grippy in an awesome way while still allowing me to easily slide when I wanna. Probably too hard for skating my neighborhood streets, but will probably see more park use than my 99a/Classics.

For a change, I tried out a set of the Ricta Parkburners and flat spotted them from frontside nosesliding a ledge a few times.  I only had those on my board for a month. 

Back to Sptifire F4 and I'm looking out for the radial slims for my next set.
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.

I must be doing it all wrong. Have literally given away sets of STF & Autobahn after trying F4s. . .

This might sound corny but formula fours actually get me motivated to skate. That slip to grip ratio... its addictive man... I'm not straying from these wheels if they stay this consistently good...

They haven't made wheels for a few years now, just pushed into being a pricepoint complete brand.

Wreck sounds like the same formula used by darkstar but rebranded.
Those shits did not powerslide at all.  I almost died bombing a hill with those fucking wheels in the early 2000's.  I was going pretty fast and went to powerslide to slow down and almost got tossed.  I ended riding the rest of it out, but yeah, fuck wreck if they're anything similar.

They are stickier than bones, but bones are wayyyy too slick. If you need to rely on your wheels sliding you're going the wrong way

Thanks for these!

Any chance you can take another photo that is straight on and not at an angle to check the height?

Looks like a wide riding surface and marignally slimmer than the classics (their thinnest wheel outside of the daewon classic slim).

I'll bite but was hoping for something slimmer like a V2/Ricta/AB Nexus.

Just set them up so can't really get a better photo.
Also should say the wheels in the pic are classic 54 and radial slims are a 52.
I feel like the radial slim is more like a radial and the regular radial really is a radial full.
Meaning imo the wheel isn't really that slim, but since they dropped a wheel with the name radial already that they had to call it a slim when really it parallels more with the conical and the standard radial more with the conical full.

I hope they make a 56 in that shape.  I go through wheels too fast with anything smaller.

so, based on the photo...am i seeing this correctly?...the radial slim 52 is almost as wide as a classic 54?
