That's pretty cool. Koston has made a couple moves latly. Im kind of thinking he's doing it well obviously for the money and the skatin, but I think also just to get to ride with other riders more maybe, where the end of his career will probly be in about 5 more years. I could be wrong but it seems to make sense.

Omg i cant beleive the guys who said best wheels for the best skater, spitfires arent the best wheels by a long shot and even though he is a sick skater hes not the best.

Excuse me,but spitfires are amazing wheels.The s3 cores are the best core wheel i've ever ridden.I suggest you try something other than plain urethane,try somethig with a core.

hmm... well i never have tried the core......... but one would assume that if their plain polyurethan wheels wear down fast, then so would the their polyurethane wheelse with cores in them. Just cause there is a core in it doesn't mean it will last longer.

Ive had both spirtfires without and with and they both suck, they flatspot way too quickly, autobhans are much better than spitfires and just cuz a company has loads of gd pros doesnt mean there products are gd.

Obviously wheel sponsors DO matter ,they make a lot of money off wheel sponsors .And they aren't riding blanks , they flip the wheels over so the graphic is facing the inside.

I had a pair of spitfire firelites, or firelights, or however its spelled. They flatspotted in less than one week, and on one of the back wheels, the urethane separated from the core when I landed from an 8 stair, causing me to eat shit. Spitfire's are Horrid. Bad move Froston.

i had spitfire classics. they wore down faster than my ricta's are doing, but they were good wheels. lasted a good 9-10 months.
