Well i never rode bones wheels, but you probably wont be sliding when trying things, just when doing reverts/powerslides/bluntslides, if anything get a soft wheel they have more grip

What are you skating on? If it's slick park concrete then STF probably isn't a good choice. Bones in general have a rep for being really slippy, which is why I don't ride them.

If you want wheels that grip, look at Rainskates. Even the 101a wheels are grippy. They slide, but not unpredictably. 98a would give you even more grip. The 54mm mini-bees are probably a good choice for typical park and street skating.

Autobahn's non-pricepoint wheels also use the same urethane factory and have a nice variety of sizes and different hardnesses.

CCS wheels are probably cheap junk. I wouldn't trust them.

slippery wheels are amazing for sliding, unless all you skate is park..

i've had two pairs of ccs wheels, and i liked them. i'd say worth the money.

STF's feel like you're skating plastic. i much prefer my streetburners, spitfire 4 lyfe brosky.

STF's are the goods in my opinion. They grip when I need them to but allow me to slide as much as I could ever want.

Can someone tell me the quality of enjoi and almost wheels?

I want to have white wheels not black...
But if enjoi and almost wheels suck, I guess I'll have to buy the black bones wheels...

almost wheels are actually really good, and enjoi are probably just as good because they both come from dwindle. can someone tell me are gold wheels good?

Gold wheels are mediocre depending on what kind of skateboarding you do. They aren't my first choice since I bought these when I was just starting to try powerslides because I've never really been able to do them but since I have a lot of hills where I live it would be helpful. They are fine for anything else. Maybe if you are really skilled at powerslides these wouldn't be bad but in my personal experience that's the only way you can get powerslides out of these wheels. They are durable though. Any body got ideas on wheels that are pretty easy to do powerslides on but don't slide every time you attempt a trick? I heard 'betterskateboarding' wheels are good for that but I was also considering 'Autobahn' wheels.

If you don't skate parks that often then STF will be fine, or ricta crystals. I like both. The are the hardest wheels I can think of. Spitfire makes good wheels too. Great for cement, asphalt, concrete etc. and power slides. Last really long too and won't flatspot

I second Ricta's, and this is for everybody;
you should buy Ricta's they're dope, particularly Crystals. Plus they look cool, pretty much the only skate part I've ever owned that people gave me compliments on.
And they look cool.

Bones STF's are great, but softer wheels have more grip and are better for all terrain.

Just got some bones STFs yesterday, and I have to say I'm loving them.
They are hard as hell and somehow I'm not sliding all over the place, but when I want to it comes much more effortlessly. I got the 52mm eighty... eight-B? I think...? anyhow they work like a charm. Highly recommended!
