For example I thought G3's where reasonable. But compared to these other wheels they really sucked. I binned them as soon as I came home.. What's in a wheel? It can be quite a lot.
LOL! Funny because, Bont G3 (84a or 85a I forget which), 110mm's came with my Semi-Race skate package only I assembled everything with K2 110mm Stargrip wheels which I had stocked up on haveing come from a K2 Radical Pro. I passed the unused Bont G3 110's on to a skater replacing a Powerslide R2's package deal 3x100x90 high-low for a 4x110 frame. I had liked that the Stargrips were lightweight'ish compared to the G3's which at the time was all I had to go by.
