I bought the BONES hard bushings to replace the ones on my grind king trucks. If you like your trucks tight, these are definitely the best bushings around, they will also last a long time I haven't cracked one yet.
Nothing but good stuff. I work at skate warehouse and the only bearings and wheels that I recommend to customers are BONES! You guys have it covered from STF to swiss ceramics! Ive been riding STF's since they were released. I won't skate any other wheels. Darkstar? Psssshh! Not going to cut it. I am and always will be a die hard BONES fan. I am so stoked that you guys are located only 2 hours away. You guys are the leaders in urethane innovation. And most of all thank you for making the best fu**ing wheels on the planet!!!!!!
SPF is the best. They're so smooth and slide easily yet still have traction. They're also faaaaast. I have reds and beat my friend who has Bones super swiss 6 in a race. I dont know how you do it, but but keep making the worlds best wheels!
Your wheels are the best ever!!!!!!! Good job on making the best wheel in the world. I just ordered some Street Tech Formula wheels. They are so awesome no flatspots or rub offs. Thank you BONES!!!!!
— bryan Dr. Phillips
I've had the red dot formula wheels since I was a little kid with my first board at 8 years old and I still use these wheels to this day now I'm 15 years old still riding them there great. (I would of had my original BONES swiss in them but they got rusted left them in the rain) well cause out here here in the desert you need good wheels cause well its so hot out here and these always seem to of held up after all these years just got new wheels other guys (wont mention names) but lets just say they sucked... I will always ride these wheels till they hit my the BONES swiss bearings in them. You guys are my one and only wheel and bearing company I'll ever need thanks for making the best in the world.

Just got a set of the new ratBONES reissue in the pf. Awesome speed, control and smoothness!!! Although I've ridden BONES SPF for a few years now they still blow my mind just how good they are! Thanks George and Rob!!
I bought a pair of softcore wheels when I first got started skating. I love these wheels, they are perfect for cruising around town and much cheaper than paying for gas!
BONES are the best I cant skate without BONES product.
— christian gonzalez
Yeah, I had spitfires for about an hour... Did one sess slide, and my wheels sounded like a motorbike. So then I got BONES wheels and they are sooo smooth and havent flatspotted on me yet. They have to be the best wheels I've ever had, good for skating any kind of terrain. If u dont have BONES wheels your missing out!
— nick M
I've been skating spitfires for only 2 and a half months and now I have flatspottings on two of my wheels, so I bought BONES wheels, the STF sheckler wheels and they are siiick they have such a smooth ride and still havn't lost any color or turned yellow. I'm getting these wheels again!
— dan H
First time I rode STF I already felt the difference. They're not too hard but not too soft. They're faster than your average urethane and they last longer, I've had size 54 and now they're still in size 51. I've used them for 3 months and the shape is still the same and slim. Too bad BONES wheels are rare in this place, I've had to order them in the internet because shops here are only supplying dwindle wheels.
— king rubiano
I've had my BONES Sheckler STFs for about four months now and I have to say that BONES is amazing. Most of my friends recomended darkstar or ricta, but I chose BONES and I'm impressed. I powerslide everyday, everywhere, all the time and I still haven't flat spotted my STFs. They are fast, slide easy, and are great all around street wheels. You can definitely tell the difference between BONES and other wheels. They are getting a bit worn out now, but my next wheels will definitely be BONES. BONES 4 life!
Before I got STFs I didn't care. I mean wheels were just wheels, with one exception now: BONES. So then I looked in to these softcores. Just got mine. Aint even gona mess around here. Just get'em. You'll be so sorry if you don't cause I gaurentee they'll blow your freekin mind. I mean thats why I'm typin here, I had to take a break, I just had to, it was too much speed and smoothness. K, I'm good now. Thanks BONES (your sick)
— neil Brush
Great wheels! Thanks george for making great wheels! Love BONES!!!
— will nakassa
Wow..... The new DTF wheels are even better than the SPF....Got a fresh new pool we're sk8in.... Put on my new DTF's today and man rollin round that pool I was completely stuck to the walls.... So so grippy and so fast through the tightest lines.. Like a combination between all other three formulas... If you skate pools use these.... Please make a 56mm version.... Best wheels I have ever rolled.
Awesome bushings for kite landboarding. Perfect stability but with more turnability. Handles warp speeds, loading up, popping and landings with ease. Do you make pivot cups??
— tallpaul thompson
Damn!!! I skate a local crete park and I noticed about 50 percent of the guys there where running SPF's...So what the heck, I have always skated BONES wheels back to my original ratBONES... Strange-house.net hooked me up, when I dropped in I almost slamed from the speed diference... No joke, combined with swiss labrynth bearings, these are freakin' insane... Thank you so much for raising the bar again!
— fred Aron
By far the best bushings on the market. No need for any washers either. Try putting two bottom bushings in each truck - cushiest ride ever.
Good wheels... Nice and hard, slides like none other. I've been doing 15 foot powerslides on mine. Now, they're flatspotted. Do I get a prize?
Just ordered a set of the Softcore, my spitfires were definately takin a beatin. hopefully these ride smoother.
Hey all homyes on sk8 !! My future seems to be pretty rosy since today, I've bought new wheels ( STF 54 mm ) to say good bye, flatspots (killers - your riding is really narrow-minded with them,no ramps,no speed..Like supermarket board complet as you can imagine..) Advantages/disadvantages : u can chase people and they don't know bout you cause u're so silent an incredible mad sensation - smooth, fast, light. I feel w/o gravity . It's so sick!! Adaptable to all terrain (fluently everywhere) though not so awesome 4 huge ramps better reflection fabulous design frankly,i had to kiss them a lot of time today :) I love them so much !! Thanks,george and rob - good work :) and also to my daddy who payed... Don't hesitate and try the new space-age wheels called STF to became addicted on them like me :) enjoy the sk8
I've had medium yellow hard cores in my 215's under my quadplane 12 for over a year now and I'm 200lbs. Best bushing I've ever skated and I don't need washers on top or bottom. Skate hard,fast,and by all means free.
— randy Smith
I have had my BONES STF for about 4 months now, and I can definitely tell that these are the best wheels. My friend has spitfires and they have so many flat spots and are all lumpy and sh*t from powersliding. Anyways, great wheels, I wont skate any other wheel.
Just put the bushings in yesterday. Skate lab bowl sesh. They're the $#!+ Get some cracka. Rip ride "07"
— calvin Barber
I was buying my new board and I need wheels too. I bought them because they were cheaper than the other wheels (plus!!!) But they ride so smooth! Buying BONES from now on!
— joe demkovich
Great wheels!!! Better, longer lasting, and faster than my old spitfires. I picked me up som 62mm SPF's and all I can say is wow!!! They work great on the street or at the park great. Sticking with BONES wheels!!!
Other wheels lasted me like a month, the STF lasted me about four months and I'm still skating them.
— pat bermingham
I rode my skateboard into town, and I saw these babies on the corner shop window, I stole them, and I put them on my cheap walmart skateboard. I started riding then my skateboard fell apart. What the f%$#? Bermuda triangle
— troll earopa
The best wheels that I have ever rode plus they outlast all the other wheels that I skate. They are really hard and I dont get flat spots with BONES like I did with other wheels. BONES are the best and I will keep buying them.
I can definetely feel the difference between these and other bushings such as doh-doh's. They feel harder and stable when you are centered on your board and turn very smoothly when you lean to one side. I can actually feel the hardcore when skating these. I like my board to only turn a small bit so I should have gotten hard instead of medium but thats ok, ill keep these in my skateboarding first aid kit! Buy these now.
I have been riding BONES for so long they are easy the best wheel out. I hate spitfires. I cant wait to try the bushings. Holla.
— calvin barber
Instant truck upgrade, trust me. If you notice, the design of the bushing actually allows a truck to turn better. Doesn't work in every truck though, you should compare bushing design and height before you buy. I put them in my phantom 2's and they worked great. I put them in my ruckus adams, not so good. Cop 'em and drop 'em!(In)
— giovanni dennis
BONES are the best wheels I've ever had I got a pair for my birthday and ive ben getting them ever since.
— Levi poole
Dude, I just put these in and ollied my first 10 stair. Easily better than doh dohs. Get em!
They are long lasting, good style, and I dont ride without them!
— tanner klemm
These wheels are absolutly indestructable. The SPF's are the fastest, most reliable, and durable wheel in the world. I had spitfires and they chunked out on me first few sessions. I don't even think you can possible flat spot the SPF's. Concrete, masonite, wood, it works for every thing.
The softcore wheels (I have the 54's) are really amazingly fast.. For real, it's a trip! They are really fast and they go forever. I am not making this up. They aren't for slides or grinds, they stick of course because they are a soft wheel.. But I ride them sometimes and they are super deadly silent, people call me night rider because you can't even hear me when I am right behind you. They are great, but when it rains at the new cement park, the wheels are actually really slippery. I think everyone should try these wheels, because it's crazy how fast you go and how few you push. They seem to hold up well too, no flatspots.
Well, the simple fact of the matter is, is that the STF have been the only wheel that I have tryed that never flatspotted. Ricta, bullet, dgk, blank wheels, spitfire, etc... They all flatspot at least a little. But its not like I ride them gently... I slide everywhere. I have yet to try the SPF at the park, but hands down, the STF is the best all arround wheel I have ever found to date. I also have yet to try popwar's guarentee of no flatspots, but I dont even like them that much. The sum up is, if your looking for a reliable wheel, BONES is the way to go. And one more thing, if your looking to go faster and maybe feel a smoother ride (in the parks at least) and your riding old beat up wheels, I would sujest saving your money and feeling a new set of wheels. Dont take them for granted. New bearing is fine, but honestly new wheels (after very well warn wheels) makes me feel like a new man. Live fast, skate faster.
I replaced my stock phantom 2 bushings with the soft BONES ones and wow what a difference. They respond almost telepathically, but it's the rebound that does it for me. They're an instant truck upgrade. Stable, yet very responsive. Well worth the money.
— giovanni dennis
I have been riding BONES STF's for the last year and a half and they are by far the best wheel on the market. I skate 365 days a year, park, street etc. The STF's are smooth and fast with plenty of grip!! I highly recommend them. They rip!!! I would like to give a shout out to buckeye skateboards also.. They rock!!! Thanks!
— alex longcamp
STF. Thats all I have to say!
— eric Wade
I used to have no name wheels about a year ago, but as soon as I could slide they were all lopsided and flatspotted. Plus the bearings wouldnt come out, because the wheels had actually shrunk! They wouldnt even come out with a bearings removal tool. (Thank god I was only using crappy fkd 5's which are about 10 bucks) the store I was in didnt have BONES wheels, and surprisingly I havent even heard of them until now. Anyways I bought the overly hyped darkstar lightning cores, at $34. They've been lasting a while, but they feel exactly the same as the no-namers. They don't really grip all that much better (i was sliding all over the denver skate park...On accident while I was on vacation) theyre not much faster, and are mildly lighter. In about 7 months ill need new wheels, and I was thinking about buying spitfires (hardline 101 firelites), but they dont even have a testimonials page! Which means that they dont think that anyone actually likes their products. If havoc will stock the STFs, ill buy them instead, I think. P.S. Are BONES wheels and BONES bearings part of the same company? Also, I dont mean to bash darkstar so much, because their armorlights decks are great; theyve got sooo much pop, but they should stick with decks, because their wheels arent worth the cost. after a few slides, I realized that there were bubbles of air in the wheels, at random spots (totally unintentional) that could seriously affect the stability. Yeah ill probably buy BONES wheels next.
I just bought a set of BONES STF and tried it for the first time and all I can say is they're awesome! Absolutely phenomenal! BONES has created a breakthrough in skateboard wheel technology. No hype! What a difference!! This changes everything for me. I can't believe how much I'm missing out! Before I got the BONES STF I was riding spitfire and ricta and they don't even come close to the performance, quality and feel of the BONES STF. It's undeniably faster and smoother than the rest of the "regular" wheels out there and believe me, I've tried them all. Aside from the amazing performance, BONES STF wheels are well balanced ( the bearings sits flush and flat on the bearing seat unlike other so called "high quality" made wheels with cores that are so crappy that makes the bearings sit uneven which causes the wheel to wiggle & wobble realy bad & could seriously damage the bearings ), super light weight, the shape looks right, the graphics are super cool, the overall design is well thought of and the quality and craftsmanship is of the highest level I've seen. BONES did it again! Not a surprise for how long they've been making skateboard wheels. They know how to do it right that's why they remain on top of there game. All these new crap about so called "new" technology on skateboard wheels with "dual durometers","cores","hollow cores","air cores","super new formula" and all that b.S. Are all nothing but "hype"! Shapes and sizes don't really matter that much to the performance of the wheel, it's what's in it!! It's the chemical composition it is made out of. Try a set and experience it for yourself. BONES STF are the absolute best!
These are the bomb! I just put them in yesterday and was psyched. Get a pair!
Best bushings ever made. I run them in my entire quiver. Sometimes I mix the blues and the yellows to get the action I want. They even make us old guys look good! 49 Years old and still going strong!
