bones stf are the fastest i felt so far, in my opinion faster than formula fours cause the bones are made from urethane that suppose to handle streets in the tech way, while formula fours just feel like theyre made to plow through terrain and give you ultimate slide and control like your some hesh skater beating the streets up


i like that description.

im back again already and all i have to say about RICTA NRG 81b wheels,

theyre not all that really, theyre super hard, like truly really 81b hard. they arent that fast. they roll an okay distance but overall.

theyre hard and dont slide that easy. they screech loud though when you slide.

so ima stick to

1.Bones Stf
2.OJ insane a thane
3.Formula four radials
4.i dont know yet but the search for the next best wheel continues, kinda interested in spitfire soft Dś

kinda wanna see what sml is like but for now ima ride these Ojś cause i like how they feel and roll

not quality like bones stf but close enough that i can handle.
yes

Also I just realized something, idk if it was mentioned but anyone know anything about who makes deck brand wheels?

Like who makes the wheels for baker boys/baker and deathwish wheels ? And who makes the wheels for crailtap/girl and chocolate wheels?

Cause I remember I loved how smooth and grippy these old set of girl wheels I had were but they were almost too grippy and the shape was kinda cool but too thin

I've heard good things about those WW wheels, I wish I didn't have so many sets of F4's to get through  ???

Also, is it just me.. or do smaller wheels feel softer than bigger wheels in the same duro? Like a slim 54mm 99 compared to a big wide 58mm 99

they are rad.  Im usually skating Spit F4 99a classics... and the two sets of Wayward Wheels 52mm Puig wheels ive skated feel almost exactly the same (slide, hardness).  I really didn't notice a difference at all.  WW are "whiter".

They look 'glassy' to me, somewhat opaque, but really bright, - the shapes are really rad, was looking at some today, I might jet back tomorrow and nab a set of 52 slims, but the funnels look sick too; fulls are pretty big and the round cut are pretty standard.

The Funnels shape is a deeper cut Spit Conical, the round cut is a classic and the thin is essentially the classic thing (did a side by side today).

Going to order a set from Wayward as the shop didn't have the round cut in 101.

It depends on what formula you get.

The harder one slides like crazy and are perfect for smooth ground or indoor parks.

The softer ones are great for rougher streets and provide more grip.

Softer ones are closer to formula fours but don't hold up as well

I rode a set of the V cuts/slims or whatever, they felt much too grippy to me and slow :\ Some members have stated the same and that the wider wheels ride much different? One set was enough for me to skip them for good.

Just set up a set of 52 wayward slims, they a bit slimmer than 52 f4 classics. Nice shape. Bearings slid in far to easy, which makes me worried they'll feel slow/sluggish, like regular OJs (NOT the Insane-A-Thane).

Raining today/all week so not sure when I'll get to skate them.

To sum up this thread; F4 is the superior product. Everything else is subpar.

kook me, i would have to disagree. ive had 4 sets of F4ś, the first set i did love(they were classics 99 and rode them for a year) so good i got another set and got some radial 99 and they were alright, alot smoother cause the shape and surface area, got over them after a few months and got some conical 101 and didnt really like them besides the crazy slide feel and gave them up, got another set of 99 classics cause maybe thats why i was losing it for formula fours and still wasnt feeling that best wheels in the game feel anymore, switched around with pigs, ojs, spit classics and bones stf. none were as good as my bones, they are everything to my preference. theyre grippier than f4 99ś and even spit classics but they still had this good slide feeling. it was odd cause the regular classics formula felt slicker than i remembered

bones stf all the way, formula fours are too slippery for my taste. i would slide out even on the slightest bad foot placement on a land and it pissed me off, it was like okay i get it they slide but i need some gription

i bought some ricta sparx, and i thought they were a street wheel, but i guess not because for whatever reason the bearing holder part gots squished out, so now i can fully tighten down the wheel on the trucks, and move the wheel around, i not sure if its because their shitty or if it was a defect, but it kinda sucks since i liked the shape.

dang ducky i feels for you, what a waste.

oh yeah i also tried ricta nrgś, they were not as good as they claim. they were hard and just hard. something of like a generic hard wheel feel. thats my opinion/review of ricta. yeah they rolled somewhat fast and long like they claim but they just felt awful.

yeah, i was going to try the naturals but now im second guessing it, i'll probably go back to spitfire (even though i hate the color) or try something else, also i have a set of OJ'S insane o thanes, i can't fit my bones swiss six in them for my life, but bronson g3's fit perfectly. NHS is on some stupid shit

haha i would second guess forsure too if this is the way one set of rictas is, especially if you got the ones that costs more its like how do the cheaper ones feel

dang that sucks man, what a jip. i know what your saying though with nhs, ive had an issue their products before. nhs is kinda odd, they barely have good sales or prices on their own site, you would think the direct manufacturer would have the better deals on their own products but i guess not.

I tried to like F4's too, tried different duros and shapes but always ended up back skating my stf's. Spitfire 99's felt too grippy and with 101's i always ended up slipping on smooth concrete,super scary on transition.
europe's like the capitol of england and france and whatever

This.

Been riding mine for about 3 weeks now and they're some of the best wheels I've had.  They're hard and break out in a slide when you need them to, but grip much better than STFs imo.

I guess you could look at it that way if you like your opinion spoon fed to you without trying things for yourself. I haven't skated Spitfire wheels wheels since 2005 and I'm doing just fine.

Autobahn for the last decade and when I run out of my AB reserves I will skate something else that's not Spitfire.

What's the Slap consensus on the cruiser wheel?

I've got a set of Keyframes and think they're pretty great. Too grippy though, but that's how it goes with cruiser wheels. Got a set of the Spitfire 80 HDs waiting. I did test them briefly last summer but couldn't come to any conclusion wether I liked them or not. Clouds for some reason are not easy to come by in Europe, so I haven't tested those. Would like to test all duros, especially the new 92A.

Just found out that the urethane company that manufactures Pusher wheels basically copied the formula from accell wheels.
I haven't really liked any wheels since accell went under and I really dug pushers when I got a set years ago and been skating them ever since.
I really suggest them especially if you like PFC or bones Stf
