Just set up this 9.6” Powell flight board with some Ace 77’s, Swiss, and some Powell 63mm clear cruiser wheels. This thing is fun as fuck. Just plowing over cracks/pebbles like nothing.

Have been wanting to set up a cruiser for a while and finally got the chance. I fucking love this deck and have been skating it as a daily driver for the past few sessions. Its definitely so fun to skate this and I find that the different shape has made it easier to learn a few new tricks. I f definitely feel that these wheels are fucking awesome to do regular skating in yet feel so smooth to cruise around, whoever made this wheel at OJ should be getting a Nobel prize.

My friend did a bunch of work on my van and was gonna do it for free so I told him I'd fix his ride up too, he skated a bit when he was younger and has been wanting to get back in to it mainly to cruise around. He was rocking a board he bought for 40 bucks on Facebook marketplace so I went ahead and got him a cruiser.

2 current cruisers:

Love it, but I’ve gotta say, fuck these OJ’s. I definitely do more than just cruise with this set up, but damn these wheels are just crumbling.



Breaking in my first set of Ace on this other set up, love the shape of the 917.

Damn those wheels have been eaten up, is it the mini juices 55mm?

Been looking for a new cruise wheel for some time but there seems to be so many good options now days.

Is there any wheel more versatile than the OJ Keyframes? Looks like a nice do it all shape.

Yeah, they’re the OJ III. I’ve actually never ridden the keyframes tho I’ve been meaning to.
The other wheels are from a small brand called ACID. They aren’t too bad except they’re really white ha.
I really love how the spitfire cruisers ride, but they’re such shit quality. I’ve broken like 3 pair and that shouldn’t happen with wheels… One pair I completely tore open. I’ll see if I’ve still got a photo…

They are DONE!

What graphic was that - the Neckface one?

I just don't recall seeing that graphic on Spitfire 80HDs.

The other thing is they are really good with warranty issues, but of all the soft wheels on the market, I think the 80HD just felt weird to skate.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

Soft spitfire wheels are just garbage

Soft D's (92 or 95) were the worst wheels I've ever skated and the 80HD i've seen countless photos of them ripped apart at the core

I love ACID wheels, I have the skaterade and pods on two of my cruiser setups. They're grippy and a great shape with the slightest slide available if you really push them

Love this thread. Any recommends for a deck to pair with Indy 159s (8.75") and neon green Rat Bones 60mm 90a wheels?

Thinking of trying Heroin for the first time 😏 with the 9" symmetrical egg or mini mutant if I can find them

Probably ten years ago there were these really good krooked zip zinger and zig zagger setups me and my friends got. My friends got over them but I was all in so I ended up with like half a dozen sets of spitfire 80D wheels. Pretty much half the wheels broke exactly like that. I superglued some back together and they actually held but I was too scared to really do anything really risky on them.

They've fixed them since then. 80HD aren't half bad now but I prefer a mini super juice for a cruiser... or just 97a F4s...

OJ Super Juice (and super juice minis) are so much better than the old hot juice IIIs it's insane. Worth upgrading imo, they definitely fix the chipping problem.
