I just bought a couple sets of the Teenage Runaway wheels (56 and 57mm) and those are working out pretty good for me.  Get some risers for your trucks to cut the wheel bite and smooth out your ride as well.

Get an antihero, 56mm wheels, and independents/thunders.  Thats the perfect tranny setup.

Try the new Spitfire F1 formula in 56mm or 58mm if you wanna go really fast. They're like Bones SPFs only better (less grippy and non plastic feeling like Bones).

anybody who needs to be told not to take advice should be forced to session with him.

Are you kidding? No one can keep up with that guy. He's incredibly consistent. It's almost like his board is attached to....

Yeah they should be forced to.

Bones and Type S.  Nobody should ever buy any other brand of wheel.  I've flatspotted a pair of Spit's, skatepark formula actually, on the first trick.

Pro tip: They don't flat spot once you wear them in.

I've had mine for more than 3 or 4 months and they flat spotted like shit when I first got them but once I just dealt with it and rode them and probably packed the material all nice and together like, they don't flat spot anymore no matter what I'm rididng.

The thing with bones for me is when they flat spot, they fuckin flat spot, and theres no gettin rid of that shit.


Title: Re: Tranny wheels....
Post by: colorblindbowen on April 03, 2009, 03:19:06 AM
Hmmm, I've had about 6 pair now, and I've never had a flat spot.  I never throw them shits away, I always find a kid with flat spots and hook him up. 

Spitfires are the worst.  I like all my wheel materials to be pre-packed together.

i just got some jivaro 56mms and love them so far. their videos on their website are legit as hell and they're all portland cement riders, so i'm figured these wheels had to be decent to keep up with all that shreddin'. and so far they have! plus their myspace page has electric wizard on it, so you get some awesome tunes while ordering their stuff. thennn i got mine 2 days after i ordered them with 100 free stickers and a free poster. shit, i sound like i work/ride for them or something, but i'm on the wrong coast!
plus they look cool?

Post by: colorblindbowen on April 09, 2009, 11:27:30 PM
They look cool?  I don't know!  I just found out about them shrunken head type dudes.  But yeah, I would trust a northwest wheel company...

Because having the brands that barneys won't beat you up for using are the most important thing to ride pools.

Bones spf 53mm or stf 53mm. I prefer spf 53mm, but usually settle for 52 or 54. I will flat spot bones, but unlike and other wheel you can ride the flat spot out.... been riding them exclusively for 8 years

F1 spits 56mm, anti hero, indy, riser pads, ride on the loose side, and keep your bearings clean, you'll be set for a while and it's the smoothest ride ever

The last time I rode pig wheels was probably around 10 years ago,and I remember them flat spotting really fast. Their formula might have changed so they might be better these days.
