Just wanted to tell everyone that Keyframes are the truth! Fucking awesome cruiser wheels.

Been cruising with my big setup I got after breaking my leg with 60 mm 78A Ricta Clouds lately. Took it apart cuz it has a Jason "Nazi" Jessee graphic on it and I want to paint it but that kinda got delayed and I didn't want to put it back together and skate a deck with that kook's name on it, so I've been cruising on my old cruiser with 54 mm Keyframes on it and god damn. They roll so nicely. Not much difference in the 60 mm Clouds to the 54 mm Keyframes on how they handle rough terrain, but having 54 mm wheels instead of 60 mm and no risers is so much better. Ollieing actually works the same as with my other set ups as I use 54 mm wheels on those too. With the big cruiser it's a fucking chore to ollie. My leg is good enough that I don't need the big wheels anymore (probably never did), so I guess the big cruiser will get less and less use and I'll just go with my Keyframes if I'm going cruising.

Too bad OJ sponsors that fucking Nazi too. Maybe the 86A Ricta Clouds could be similar quality. 🤔 Spitfire 80HD Chargers at least are fucking crap compared to Keyframes.

Have Spitfire Classics always been made in Mexico? I thought all their wheels were poured in USA.

I use Bones ATF 54 mmís here in Turku and I agree that you donít really need wheels bigger that 55mm to cruise around if formula is right...

I just got some AG (which stands for Austyn Gillette I guess) Josh Pall's. Honestly they feel more like spit classics than a hard stf.

I don't need wheels but Dial Tone has piqued my interest.  If anyone tries them out shoot us a review.

Been on Spitfire classics and got some conicals- what am I spost to notice? They feel slightly smoother, that's about it.  Some tricks feel harder and crooks aren't as easy to lock into it seems.

Back on my Crupies again after having multiple bearings seize in bones STF (just did a quick wheel swap instead of pulling em out) and damn I forgot why I loved these so much. The squeal they make on 180 tricks & reverts is just

If you are from europe and want to try something different go with FSWC (Fast Skateboard Wheel Co.)
I bought a set the other day out of curiosity and they feel super good, on pair with any other big brand, crispy white, super fast and slide well. The price is pretty good, 29pounds, with free shipping inside europe (thats basically half of a F4 set). They also have a sick squad (sour boyzz in the house), and a no bullshit image which is a plus. Backing them hard!

I know someone posted about them a while back, but anyone mess with the Sml AG formula wheels recently? Thinking of trying a set.

My friend is skating these 'elite' formulas and they feel a lot like more of a bones product.  Hard but not plasticky.....

I'm a weirdo and skate longboard bearings (race reds) so my complaint n/a to most but the cores on spits don't feel consistent....on my bones they do...pop right in and it feels even....
