Does anyone have any experience with the OJ Boserio 97a 60mms? Not sure if theyre just gimicky or actually functional. They look fun for everything except maybe ledges because theyre so wide.

Not the Boserio's, but I did have a chance to screw around on a setup with some Slimeballs which are the same duro/formula. They cut a little bit of roughness out of shitty ground, but still slide pretty easily. The ones I tried were the more classic/conical shape though, not the super wide 60's. Wish OJ would make some plain white 97a's in the 54mm range. All they have are those hideous Creature collab things.

Someone here ordered bunty cakes to Europe? Saw that it was possible now and I'm kinda tempted, but steep shipping at 12 dollars, the wheels are still cheap tho.

I recently decided to give bones another shot and I was pretty surprised by how much I like them. I picked up a set of STF 99s in the v4 wide shape and while I'd still say F4s are better overall the gap is smaller than I thought it would be. They're kind of soft feeling so they're really comfortable on rough east coast asphalt, and I assumed they wouldn't slide because of that but they do and do so well (albeit not as well as F4). They're also quite fast, very close with spits and maybe even better on some terrain. Its probably the honeymoon period but I think I might prefer them on crustier terrain. I like the v4 shape but I wish they had just a regular conical available.

Does anyone know if there's a difference between the "STF ninety-nine" and "easy street" 99a formulas?

I'm not EU but I would trust boardy to make sure that you get your wheels. That shipping is totally reasonable to me,  buying a set of wheels in my local shop is $36 so that's about the same. I definitely recommend that you do it.. They aren't going to replace your spitfires, but they're so much fun to mess around and do flat ground tricks on.

the easy streets have "STF 99" printed on them.
I always assumed that "Easy Streets" were just a rebranding of the 99a differentiate them from the 83b wheels they're more known for. Like Spitfire F4's are more associated with the 99a and not the 101a. Bones definitely went with that natural color for the 99a's compete with spitfire. The whole point of Bones is that they were "BONE" white.

If they actually changed the formula I have not idea.

Thinking of trying either a set of Bones V1 or V3, looking to try a thinner wheel after trying having fun with Concials For sliding on ledges. I got some V5 on 55mm, think they may be too big, so either a 52 or 53mm

I just made the move from the v3 52mm(29mm wide) to the v3 54mm(30mm wide). I haven't skated the 54s yet because of weather. But I loved my time on the 52s. I think that the slim hard wheel takes to damage a little worse than say the v5's which I rode prior to the v3 move. I had some chips in the wheel, that did not affect performance. I tried 2  pairs of crupie, but they flat spotted before the graphic wore off. Spite fire slims are not slim just have a narrower contact patch. I think autobahn were slim but good luck finding them.

The idea I had was to set up some ventures, skinny board and 42 mm to flip around but imma w8 a while, the small wheels look so cool when they show the whole hanger and nuts that's what I like with them.

Any recommendations on a slim and small 50-51mm wheel? Was checking out the obvious Bones V3s and SF4 radial slims, but didn't know if they're are any other better options like dial tones or anything like that?

I've been back on bones since the Easy Streets dropped. V1 shape mostly (I'll swap out my STF V1s 53s I use at the park to the 52 easys when I hit the shit streets out here, makes a world of difference). I've an old run down set of V5s (my favorite shape) and want to grab some in 54 but can't find them, 55 is just too burly (I know one fucking MM). Also have a rundown set of 52 V3s (my other fav shape).

What I'm planning on doing is grabbing some 54MM V3s I think, contact patch is wider than the same size V1/2 but width is still a 'trimmer' shape all around (much like the spit tabs).

Was riding a set of F4101 Radial Slims one day, slid better than the easy streets (and on par with regs STF) but they completely deadend the feel and sound of my board which I hate.

Ultimatley ALL my wheels are hovering around 52/51 and I want to up the game to 54s.

I've rediscovered the simple joys of slappy noseslides and my f4s looked like they were not happy so I bought a few sets of graphic blem bones stf v2 53mm for about $18 a set. I bought them out so don't bother to look unless they put up some new ones.

54s seem perfect due to the added pop and wear down time. im definitely sizing up from 52s on my next set. they wear down to sub 50 too quickly for my wallet's liking

I'm on taller trucks (tensorATG) with a shorter tail so bigger wheels is the way to go for me popwise. I really wanted to go for some conical fulls (been slappy sessioning more recently with those tensor mags :P) but can't find anything local but 52s...I'd go for 54mm V5 easys if I could find them (I know my local has the v3 54s tho)

No, they had graphic blemished wheels on sale for $25 each set. I had some points that I got from a previous purchase which knocked the price down further. I bought 4 sets for free shipping.

That current offer is for longboard wheels.

Anyone looking for an excellent indoor wheel should try these. I’ve been skating them for a couple weeks and they don’t slip at all. Powerslide perfectly fine on streets and concrete. The wheel graphic color is incorrect on their photo. Mine came red/black.

I've been eyeballing these for a cruiser-ish setup. The graphic and Powell stigma put me off a lil.
What's the width like? Similar to conical full or Bones wide-cut? Wider?
What do they sound like when they slide? Screechy? Goose call? Quiet?

the easy streets have "STF 99" printed on them.
I always assumed that "Easy Streets" were just a rebranding of the 99a differentiate them from the 83b wheels they're more known for.

The whole point of Bones is that they were "BONE" white.

If they actually changed the formula I have not idea.

I’m pretty sure they’re named Bones after Ray “Bones” Rodriquez. If they applied that other thinking thereafter it was probably a gimmick.

'easy streets' and 'dirty birds' were phased out (because they suck name-wise and cause brand/product confusion).

Both the white and dirty birds easy streets are now the 99a stfs, as they should have been from the start.

I had these as well, work great outside on crusty surfaces, I really wanted to like them but they were a little too big for my liking. Wish they would make a 52 or 51 version 97a.

Pigs are just Bones Wheels rejects. Not all wheels turn out perfectly so Pig buys Bones rejects then they trim a bit of the urethane off to make them consistent. Then a pig swallows them in even sets of 4. 53mm one day, 58mm another day not to stretch out the pigs rectum. After that they are rinsed and sold at a loss. Pig Wheels operates at a deficit of 30k a year to supply the buyer with the best possible wheels. The spirit of the Pig lies within the wheel forever and gives you that pop and slide that is so desired by the skate industry right now.
