    Default Need help dating these wheels

    I'm old school '70s, not up on '80s+ stuff. Looking for help placing these wheels in the timeline of skateboarding history:

    Kryptonics 60mm Krypto-Pro III, lathe ridges on rolling surface:


    UFO 57mm:


    Thanks for your help!

    No, the UFO's are newer, more like late 90's.

    Thx, SDO. Kinda weird, late '90s seems not that long ago but more than a decade old.

    You can find the Frypto Pro III's here:

    Personally, I prefer the Pro II's, with the smaller, regular core:

    I don't remember their shipping being particularily high, but they do have a minimum order. I've bought from them a few times.
