Wheel Swap

Postby White Riot » 18 Jan 2013, 13:17

Hi everyone,

I'm really keen to investigate the possibility of getting some narrow wheels to try and improve my agility/juking on the track.

I know a few people in the league skate on narrow wheels e.g. atom juke slims and wonder if you'd be willing to let me try them at practice sometime? Obviously might be hard if they're you're only wheels or current set up but I'd appreciate a bit of time to see what narrower wheels feel like, if you don't mind a brief lend?

Thanks in advance!

You can try a set of my heartless (they are really narrow) and it makes a hug difference to me and actually feel like I'm going to trip over my feet if I use anything wider! They are 35mm
I usually use my 90's but I have 88's too if you wanna try them?

What sort of duro are you after? I have some 91a radar zodiacs that are too grippy for me that I'm probably going to try and sell when I get my arse in gear...

I'm not using my juke alloys at the moment, you're welcome to borrow them, I have 4 93's and a full set of 88's.

I love the idea of a wheel fiend :D - will bring the zodiacs to the next practice for you Goldie.

I'd like to try some different wheels too please - things between 92 and 95 if anyone has anything spare (after Riot has had first dibs though)

Wow Goldie, so many wheels :D Could you bring your 93a jukes as Thorn has 4 too...I know most people mix and match but it would be good to try all 8 before playing round with combos I reckon.

Not sure without googling but are the poisons slimmer/narrower than rollerbones zebras? They're my current set, 86 or 88 I can't recall which! x

Thanks for the offer of the Tuners Riot but I'm finding the blue 93s a bit too grippy/not enough slide for me atm. :)
