OJs elite are ok. Had a set that I bought from FTC. They didnít slide for awhile but I should probably try them again.

Had some darkstar wheels with a hollow core when I was younger. The outer part of the wheel separated and twisted off from the core. It was sick.

The bigger question is why I bought them. I remember I was wearing accels around that time, so some of my neurons were apparently in tact, but not in the wheel department.

Makes the wheels lighter. If itís a soft wheel it gives your bearings a better seat.

I believe itís just more unnecessary plastic bs

it seems like the z-roller of wheels. Spitfire did it too and itís kinda dumb in my opinion.

They're essentially basic wheels that can break and are more expensive.

I heard some of those wheels had metal bearing seats. Looks like a beyblade.

Ricta makes a wheel with a plastic grind plate on the inside. I consider this a stupid waste of plastic too and borderline rollerblading

Expensive Rictas are dope. Mini logo wheels are good to throw away.  Bones 100s seem like the best value.

I always try to fuck with those shitty boards if the plastic wrap is off, you literally cannot ride them. The wheels do not spin and I weigh basically nothing as it is. I would be pissed if I was a kid.

I had a pair of the Geoff Rowley OJ wheels about 5 years ago. I flat spotted them pretty bad the second session on them. I was bummed because they felt good other than that.
