How long does it take to wear a few mm's off the wheels ? I really like the f4s, but i went with too big wheels and ate shit 3 times today because of wheel bites.
Get some risers cos its gonna be a long wait

Is there a reason why they don't make 53mm 99A's in formula four? specifically in Fulls/Radials/Classic Pro's in Natty White?

uh

I would say Spitfire F4 in the 99 duro is about the same as a Bones STF. The Spitfire F4 101a durometer is in a class of its own though.

Seems to me the 101s are slightly harding wearing also. Mine are holding up really nice with lots of slides, hill bombs and rugged streets... I'd say the 101s are similar to STFs but with a bit more of a controlled slide. Definitely prefer them.

99duro are softer then, no? if so, how soft? compared to stfs, i like their slideability and grip.

N.L. nailed it, the slide of the 101's is insanely controllable and nearly impossible to catch and eat shit. The 99's took a lot more effort to slide and didn't allow me to go for long periods and have that control, which was also the case with STF's. Bones STF's are like 83-84b which to me just equates to 99 duro no matter how much they wanna say it equal's 101a or higher. Just get Spitfire 101a's man, you won't regret it.

F4 99's in the conical full shape have been treating me well. I don't want anything else

I tried 58mm 99's, then 54 101's. The 101's are noticeably faster, I kinda wanna try the 99's in a smaller size.. Just for a smoother ride, but I'm so used to hard street wheels that its not a big deal.

We definitiely make them!

They are our most popular size/formula, so they sell out fairly quick.

Just bought a pair of the 99A, 52mm after reading NL's positive feedback and hearing good things in this thread. Only skated them once so far but they feel great. Steady gliding

Did spitfire change how wide the conical fulls are? I got a set of the 54mm 99a ones and they look the same as regular conicals. Everyone I've seen with conical fulls has way more riding surface.

one you skate them for a couple months the taper will wear down and youll have a flat conical shape, could be that, its the true nature of the wheels pretty much, like how the classics are actually tablets

Didn't mean to include Classic Pro's but mainly Radial's and Full's in both 99's...never ever seen one online or at a shop. usually the 53mm's are always the 101's in both those models.

Does 1mm really make that much of a difference for you? Anything between 52-54mm feels pretty much the same for me. When you go 51mm or below and 55mm or over that's when it makes a difference.

I get 54s so they'll last a little longer, but if I have to choose 53s or 52s I don't mind.

Just got some Spitfire Mike Anderson SFW's that are not F4's. Trying to do a good comparison on them.

Is there someone who's skating 101s on a really smooth park ? I want to try them as well, but i'm afraid that they might slide too much once autumn comes and the weather ain't dry anymore

i do, its all i have been skating lately so i got pretty used to it. i wouldn't say they slide a lot. the ride is actually very satisfying. also, for an extremely smooth flat i would consider buying THE hardest wheels because that's what hard wheels are designed for. i tried skating softer wheels on the same smooth flat and my impression is that i would feel a lot of "speed dampening" because of the soft wheels. i don't know how they ride on wooden floor though. i will pm you a video of the park so you can see what kind of floor i'm talking about.

F4 101s are good for everything besides a dusty indoor park. You'll barely be able to stay on your board them shits is slick.
