I felt compelled to pick up a set of 63mm Spitfires after reading this thread.

Anyone remember the ďruleĒ that you couldnít film any street footage with wheels over 55mm if you were pro in the mid90s. Philly kind changed the rule, couldíve been an SF thing.
I feel like itís in a chromeball interview or something

I have several setups for various styles, got a set of 57mm conical fulls for vert and pole jams. I should get risers butttt I tighten trucks wheelbites and such.

I like big wheels for sketchy ground as well and slappies, if you have pea gravel get some OJ's super juices at least you'll have a smooth ride.

I was riding an 8.75 Bacon last year and alternating between 60mm Spitfire OG classics and 61mm Oj Winkowskis on Ace 44ís. Wasnít crazy about the Ojs but the Spitfires were awesome. I wish they made the OG classic shape or a conical full with F4 urethane in that size.

They do though?

I donít see conical fulls on there in 60mm and they donít do OG classics in F4 formula afik

Oj 60mm superjuices have made me the local slash dog at the park. So smooth on the nice concrete, great to carve around and I can pretty much do most of my tricks on them. Hit some crusty spots I used to skate as a kid that are now unskateable with small wheels because the asphalt has eroded.

I take care of my curbs.

Has anyone skated OJ Big Balls?  I usually ride OJ team riders or Winkowskis 61mm 97a but Iíve been thinking about going bigger.  I dislike that they always make the big balls in crazy colors though.  Not everyone skating 60mm+ wheels is looking to set up a Powell Ripper with gullwings and color coordinated wheels to let it sit in their garage while they talk about how they used to skate back in 87.  Obviously Iím not bitter about it though.

Can you slide OJ super juice? Or is it better to get the keyframes?

Ive never been able to slide Super juices at all. Powell G-slides are the closest Iíve seen to a soft wheel that slides and even those stopped sliding for me after a couple days.

Do you mean sliding on ledges or powerslides? Super juices do powerslide but you have to go fast and really lean into the slide. They slide better on rough ground. They are more like a downhill wheel, sliding feels totally different compared to hard wheels. G-slides slide a lot nicer, they feel like gliding over the asphalt

Wondering if I should use those instead for the park and use super juice for cruising?

Anyone size down trucks when going up for wheels? Been skating Ace 55s with ~50mm wheels, moved up to 53 and now going to try out some big 56s. Getting some noticeable hotrod since putting them on and was thinking of switching them for 44s with extra washers.
