If the new ones are skinny as hell, cored, and flat spotting fast then they're probably from China. They look like the same $10 wheels you can buy unbranded from a thousand amazon sellers or TGM. In my experience they're not very good, but they're fine for rolling around a smooth park.

For those who didn't like the CU ones, you have to wear the grooves off. It's like the gloss on NFGs, the wheel really changes once it's smooth and as long as you're over 101a they should slide almost as well as an F4 in terms of power slides or sliding through bad landings. They're a little stickier on the curb/ledge but I haven't had anything a quick waxing wouldn't fix. I've got whatever the 51mm glow ones are called and quite like them, same as speedlab, jivaro, Dialtone, and the half dozen other CU wheels I skate.

I wish more brands did clear wheels. The homie had some choir clear bones once. They were big and skinny.

He broke his wrist bombing hills and in Dorchester going to work or something. Lost the board and the wheels.

Total bummer because I was about to trade some f4s for them. I got bones v3? In the trade instead. Square af 54 Mullen graphic. I like them. Loops and spits are better

Bones crystals. Hard as fuck. I had a set of red ones somewhere but I might have given them away. I think V2 are the really square ones, kinda similar to tablets.

Yep. Hardest wheels Ive ever tried. So good so long as they above 52mm.

I like the bones wheels. I usually dont like tab shape but the 54mm sizing helps make me love them.


My wish is for 103a -101a 66mm og classic f4.

Id never need new wheels in my life.

Id swan dive into car wash with a old school metal track toboggan for the social media of anyone who gave me a set.

The snot rails are pretty good. Pretty dense with a matte finish. Slightly rounded corners compared to bones.

Sweet. Just got some of those too. Honestly just love the teal color on the wheels and on the logo.

Honestly, for the price i would try and get spitfire lil smokies if i were you. boogers felt ok but sorta dead if you get what i mean. They flat spotted fairly quick too. All in all an ok wheel but price wise id rather get f4 as i like the slide a lot better

Having tried snots (first drop < then second), this is the correct answer.

Both sets of snots were ditched at the spot.

Thanks for the honest opinion, I suspected as much.  lil smokies are a bit hard to come by here in the UK.

Yup. Skated them for a session or two and  took them right off and threw them in the bushes. Dead sluggish wheel…I’d rather skate og spits or bones 100s

The cored snots are quit good, very very hard and fast just grippy, slick cement parks only.

F4.

i think lil smokies are hard to come by everywhere now. think its been a while since the last batch. can only find one set here in europe and its the 101's but i want the 99's
hoping they do them again. i wanna try a small wheel but dont wanna try anything thats not F4. especially in smaller sizes.
have been tempted by the snots too. but my worries are the same.

They're...smaller?

No clue really, they could easily sell them at full price; my guess is that info that they're made from defective wheels (shaved down to be in good shape) is out there and they're avoiding backlash? Who knows.

2025 - the bigger the wheel/board, the more expensive it is due to increased materials used.

That is what someone else said - seconds from bigger wheels so they shape them down and simplify the packaging and graphic, in a price point Formula Four wheel.

Most shops do keep them at the lower price, but some shops put them at normal Formula Four RRP which is a bit on the nose, but it is up to them to sell things for whatever price they see fit.

There is a solid batch out here in AU right now, some green / black swirls, as well as the normal / natural ones too.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.
