Yeah I was using some Habitat wheels that I got from a setup somebody sold to me, and it's only been a month and now they're like 23 mm. And I don't do a lot of powerslides, and it's time for some new wheels. In fact, I switched them yesterday with some wheels that are just slightly less worn down.

So what kind of wheels don't wear down quickly?

i use rictas, and i powerslide a lot and they dont really wear down. but everyone says bones stfs dont wear down/flatspot, i've never had them tho.

Any harder wheel. Ricta/darkstar/Bones stf are what you should be looking at

Lol they're close to 33-37mm I guess, idk but they're incredibly small and people have been pointing it out to me.

Anybody know about Bones 100s? I'm trying to be able to get a good set at the shop and basically as far as I know the only real wheels I'm looking at are Bones 100s and Autobahns.

For anything else I have to order online.

bones stf for sure.


im currently skating mystery's but thats only because thats my odd preference.
its all about preference really.

I used to have bones stfs but gave em to a friend who was getting into skating because he didnt have tons of cash so i gave him my wheels which had bones reds in them, which are also very good and inexpensive
back to the question, get some hard wheels, preferably bones stf, but try what you want.


Lol
i fuckin love mystery's.
i ride a chocolate too.
kinda funny
