The only thing I don't like about F4s is that I can never choose between 101 and 99. They need a 100d !!

Wonder what's up with the classic and classic full dimensions but conical and conical full pics?

That was probably one of the first spec graphics they made. Whoever did it probably just used a generic template to show how they divide up a wheel. the newer ones are better suited to each wheel shape

just wanted to pop in a re-iterate that

Spitfire Formula Fours are the greatest skateboard wheels ever made.

why do other wheel brands exist?  what's the fucking point?

Are the classic full in 99d still a thing ? I've called the local shops in my area, no one has a single pair. Can't find them on SW and tactics. I've settle for the conicals, which are pretty much the same thing. But, I was wondering out of curiousity.

Keenan had that special ability to make his switch tricks better than his regular tricks but still let you know they were switch.

I've had a hard time finding white radial slims 101's anywhere online.  Hoping these stick around in the catalog for awhile.

accidently bought a set of radial 101s... that GLOW IN THE DARK.  didn't even know that was a thing.



anything about the glow-in-the-dark chemistry that makes the wheels different than regular ol' 101s? 

cant really imagine a scenario where i'll be skating in pitch black enough for them to glow, but as long as they are gonna skate like regular F4s, then oh well.

Hey Lenny, while you're skulking around the thread>

I've mashed up colored f4s with regular undyed ones 1:3 ratio kinda thing. Think Lance or Grosso vibes.

Question is, in DLXs eyes do the colored wheels wear any different than the undyed ones or am i sweet to just mix and match as i please?

After speaking to our illustrious hard-goods guru, the verdict is that they should all wear the same as long as they are the same Duro to start with.

So mix and match away!

First no more 99 Radials and now no more 99 Classic Fulls? Spitfire is really pushing those conicals.

I've still seen a lot of 99 radials. Where did you hear this from?!

This.
As a STF V3 guy in Europe I was looking for radial slims in 101 to try them but they were nowhere to be found.

I think the radial slims are quite widely available. Maybe not in white that much, but the different color death adder versions seem to have been around for a while and available quite well IMO. Got a set of the green ones from some sale last summer. Planning to put them on this summer if my leg will allow me to skate.

Here's a few Finnish shops and one Polish shop that have the 101 ones in stock from a quick google search. I've ordered stuff from all of them and can recommend them all.

I have done some research on my euro bookmarks and I only found them in green, black and red. As I seen on their catalogue 101A are only available in colours. I understand you, white wheels and raw silver trucks forever.

I'm riding the 54mm conical full. Fuckin love 'em.

Thats exactly my next size/shape, what duro are you using?

Sorry, just saw this, don't really stray off too far from Useless and Video sections...

I have the 101. Great wheel. Gonna need new ones in another month or two.
I cant imagine anything other than conical full now, everything else seems so damn skinny/weird looking to me!

Anyone else on here unable to ever break away from skating 54mm 101a classic shape f4's? I've tried nearly everything else and nothing...nothing beats the size, shape, and slide.

Skated 'classics' since waaaay back, I was alive and skating when spitfire wheels came to the market; everything else was fat and pretty much soft as shit, OJs were the 'street' wheel of choice if you wanted anything that was fat powell softball wheels.

Since thinner wheels have been around, I can't go back to the round wheel shape when there are wheels with the same riding surface that have  a thinner overall shape (like the radial slims, only f4 I'll ride now).

sorry

I bought some Formula Fours 99 two years ago and really loved them
now that I have burned like 5mm off them I bought another set, Formula Fours 99 also, and I have to say these new wheels feel a lot harder than my old ones (mind you, both sets are 54mm)
the difference in hardness is very notable to me, so did the formula change or something? did anyone notice a difference between older/newer f4's?

The different shapes can feel different, thinner ones feel more bumpy I think, wider is generally a smoother feeling ride

Wait what? i know Classic Fulls were discontinued but i hope the fuck not for the Radials???(regular/non-slim)

The 99d Radials in 52 were good street wheels and the 99d 54 could be too and just as good for cruisers.

We still make the Radial and Radial Slim!

Classic Full has been discontinued though.
