PostSubject: Best Urethane Wheels and best plastic wheels?   Mon Nov 14, 2016 6:21 pm

I've been looking to try some urethane wheels because all I have ever used was plastic but then I thought about this and thought it would be a pretty interesting discussion topic.

What urethane wheels do you think are the best?

Also, what plastic wheels do you think are the best?

Opinions on other types of wheels besides plastic and urethane (ie. dual durometer FF wheels)?

This is mostly an advice thread for people who have yet to buy any fancy wheels and for those who are looking for more expensive high quality wheels. So post your opinions below on the matter!

I just use Oak, for me they're the best wheels so far!

Best wheels I've ever used are my Winklers from 2008. Still use them now and they feel exactly like they did when they were new.

Plastic: Substance > Winklers > Flatface > the rest
Urethane: Oaks > Ywheels > the rest > cancer > Joycults

I don't understand why joycults are sold for fifty dollars but people think they suck.

^^^ same here, they are ridiculously overpriced. I am not too knowledgeable on how much they spend on manufacturing their wheels but it can't be as much as they charge. The reason most people don't like them is either because they are too grippy or just fall apart way to easy.

I prefer Oaks myself as well. The RV1 and RV2 have both been great for me.
