    Put your flamesuit on....

    The Freeride O-Tangs slides way easier than 4Prez, which needs some good breaking in before they starts to slide smoothly.

    None of their wheels are center set, so they cone if you use them for sliding.
    They are designed for griping, not sliding.

    If you wanna slide, buy the right wheels for it.
    For me, the most important thing for slide wheels is how evenly they wear, since sliding wears wheels more aggressivly then anything else.

    That means getting wheels that are center set. Also you can flip center set wheels when they begin to cone. make them last.

    Purple Fat Frees are the hands down best sliding, drifting, freeride wheel for topmounts out there today.

    And don't be a pussy, flip those mutha****as if they cone so that they last longer. It doesn't take all that much to adjust your style or technique to the slightly narrower track.

    I hate flipping wheels. It's not the narrower track that bothers me either. I see no need to anyway, whats wrong with coning a wheel all the way to the core.

    When you flip it you are applying pressure to the coned wheel in a very unnatural way. I find it causes unpredictable slides and a higher tendency to flatspot as well.

    My favorite are the circular ones. Square wheels tend not to roll.lol But for real my yellow durians are the s@$t.

    i like stimulus better than durians too, durians are just chattery till they get to stims size. maybe its im not patient enough to break them in properly before sliding
