Does anyone know how good is Bones with their warranties for stfs? Got a pretty noticeable flatspot that I can't seem to get rid of. Only the third session on these too.

^I was able to get a set of atf's replaced for me, after having them for over a year. A chunk came out of the wheel somehow. I sent them in, they sent some new ones back. The whole process took about a month or longer. U just have to inquire about it online & wait for a response (or call customer service?).

Good to know, thank you. Sent in an inquiry via their website so hopefully all works out well.

I remember being convinced satoris were the best....those Ipaths went straight to my head....like when people on here say prize fighters! Small!
haha, I had a good laugh at I-paths going to your head. PFC are decent wheels though. Funny story about them; my wife has a set of them on her board that I used to rock and it seems like they've gotten really sticky with age. I tried to power slide on them the other day and nearly ate shit so hard

Spitfire....

Please tell me the 101 58mm Conical Full F4 is still in production because I can't find them anywhere on the net or at my local brick and mortar.

Any chance I can buy them direct?

They are pretty good when it comes to replacements, I got a flat blunt sliding on some V5s when they first rolled out and they replaced them in short order (albeit a smaller size).

That was never a size that existed as far as I know.

Biggest 101 is 58mm, but the classic shape.

I always figured that was just for the 99s. Have you ever seen a set of 101 conical full 58s in person, or even available anywhere, ever?

Any one try the spitfire mike Anderson sfw 2's? Really interested in giving them a go.

Mike-Mo is going to be one of the best if not the best skater of his generation. Barring some kind of career ending injury or drug addiction.

I'm looking for a slim colored wheel in 53-54mm (pinkish or tealish)

I like the ricta speed rings and bones SPF.

I like these, but I think I want thinner wheels.

anyone tried the oj mini elites 95a? I set them up on my cruiser and I think I finally found a good wheel for that. they slide and are a little softer than regular wheels but harder than your typical cruiser type wheel. I figured out I can't deal with soft wheels of any kind - don't like having foot braking as my only option for slowing down and hate the feeling and wheelbite of super soft wheels. these are pretty much perfect for a cruiser if you're the same way.

You get a chance to try em out at the skatepark? I'm looking for an indoor park wheel that's grippy but not too sluggish.

But yeah, I hate super soft wheels too, wouldn't mind getting some of these just to skate crusty spots. I had some Mini-Logo 90a wheels for this purpose, but they needed too much riser cause when they bit, they gripped hard.

I don't skate parks very often but they are really good so far on regular asphalt and concrete. I saw some reviews online where people liked them for parks and bowls as well as street.

Does anybody know how SPFs handle on shitty street terrain and bluntslide tricks on ledges compared to STFs?

They're pretty much a hard, fast park wheel that grips when you need em to. I ride them on all terrain, but they don't slide as well as STF or F4's. Also stick a bit on tail slides, lipslides, etc. personally I like that they're a little more difficult to slide, cause I like my wheels to squeal a bit.

Was recently gifted some Spitfire 53mm 92s, might set them up to see how much of a difference they make on some of the spots around here.

I've got some speedlab 97a on one of my setups right now and on rough stuff it's a little sluggish but for the more slippery parks they feel real similar to f4s with a little more grip

I'm curious about this too.  I know a couple people have weighed in, but has anyone on here been skating Wayward's and how do you like them? Been on F4's the last 4 years and Wayward's are the only non-F4 wheel that have piqued my interest.
