Damn, I just bought some radial slims. What's the difference between the two? Are these Reynolds like a slim classic shape?

Anyone ever had one wheel wear down insanely fast? On every board i've ever rode the back heel one wears down the quickest, but on my current 52mm f4 classics, the front heel has worn down insanely fast. I feel like it has to be a defect.

goddamit. this is another one of those I refuse to believe this is a serious question questions.

Come sit in my boat!

I picked up a set of radial slims when the 101s were dropped (along with those sexy green ones), 3-4 weeks ago or so? Excellent wheel and my fav spit so far...but...they are still a bit wide for what I wanted but that is just me splitting hairs, I still suck on conical fulls or raidal slims ;)

When they arrive I'll share my results!

Word on the street is that they are as slim (if not the same mold) as those classic thin (makes sense) F1 Song's that were released a while back:

I dont understand how this isnt a real question but okay. All i'm saying is, the rest are at like 51.5 with a thin contact patch and this guy has morphed into a blocky 48 after just a couple sessions with me doing the same exact shit as always. It seemed kinda yellow when i got it, so i put it on where my wheels typically wear down the least. Seems reasonable to assume it's a defect.

I feel dumb for asking, but what are the benefits to having a slim wheel?

Yep you caught me, I have nothing better to do then lie about wheel sizes  ::). This is my third pair of the same size and shape and i'm going to keep buying f4's because they're the shit but having this happen is forsure dissapointing.

^^My next wheel purchase for sure.
I've been waiting for so long for a thinner f4. If they're anything similar to a v3 STF then it'll be all I buy from now on probably.

I've been back on 99 F4 Conical Fulls after riding Welcome Orbs for a while and they are just so much better. I don't think I'll ever buy anything else.

I rolled around on them (ankle still healing up), did a few light slides..they feel like 99a spits that break free a bit easier. Haven't flipped them/skated them at speed or anything.
