I skated Spitfires for 8ish years....Tried STF's once and they felt like walmart wheels to me, though. I switched to Prize Fighters about a year ago and now I won't skate anything else. Nothing else is as resilient, but I guess these formula fours may be...I'd be down to give em a shot.

And to the dude that said he flatspotted PFC's once and never went back, are you joking? I've flatspotted every set of wheels I've ever owned ever... That's no reason to abandon a company entirely.

I wouldn't switch back to anything other than PFC's either. I've tried to flatspot them and couldn't do it.

I only had one set of PFC's, and it only flatspotted once I tried powersliding on a super rough hill.  So it's not that I don't think they're bad wheels, but since STFs were bearable for me, I just stuck with that.

They don't look tooooo bad, as long as they stay like that for the most part.

Can't wait for them to drop, haven't ridden Spitfires in years.

I think the color looks fine...I honestly wouldn't have noticed if it wasn't for the comparison.

i think they will look better after being skated compared to other white wheels that turn a more unnatural yellow. my street burners right now are turning a bright yellow cant wait to set up the f4's

Had a set of Pig's at the local shop that no one would buy, and they just sat there for months, and the color they ended up turning sort of reminds me of how the F4's look, ahah.
But, as I mentioned earlier, I don't even mind the off white color. I think it looks pretty sick.

I'm definitely buying a set once they're available. Any confirmed dates? (The page before just had estimates.)

Bones makes spitfire obsolete. Unless they man up and put a flatspot guarantee on the F4's FUCK SPITFIRE

Even Darkstar can make wheels that don't flatspot, spitfire is a joke

i got a set the other day, i'm hyped to try them out... the color is really weird but, i'm sure i'll get over it.

Edit: they are really rad, did tons of powerslides and a bunch of bluntslides as well! No problems whatsoever, and they skate pretty smoothly.

Shops should be getting this month I'm guessing - B.V. or anyone else - did your local shop get them in at all yet?

This is what I thought before I got to try f4. If the final product is as good as the sample I got I'll never buy another wheel again

I'm not a big spitfire fan but I'd like to try these.  I think the color is actually sort of neat. 


wheee!

What don't you like about bones wheels? They have been good forever

Just don't see why people need to change a good thing

sorry you can't afford spitfires that are better even though you have to replace them more often, and you have to buy shitty bones because they last longer. Length isn't the only deciding factor of which wheel is better.
