Default Fothon wheels

So i picked up a set of 90mm greens and 125mm clear/white wheels and have run thrm through some paces. They are not performance wheels by any means and are not marketed as so. With that out of the way they make great rink wheels. They are really not meant for high speed or cornering at speed but they take it pretty well. A little wobbley in the corners when you try to go fast but it wont stop you. The kids at the rink love them. I remember when i was a kid and watched all the "cool" adults skate there. I really looked up to them. As such, i find it necessary to show the kids something they havent seen before. I habe had parents come ask me where they can get some and they have been quite the conversation starter whenever i roll on them. I would have to give them an A for what they do, execution, and originality. Dont expect anything from them exept nighttime/rink fun and everyone around to ask you where you got them and tell you how cool they are. Definitely something to have in the wheel arsenal. They are just so much fun when you skate without a goal except fun. I will see if i can upload a video

I've thought about slapping a set of these on my RB10's, but so far the 82A hardness (softness) has scared me off, lol! I've been having a blast on my blue SEBA Luminous wheels, however. Sure wish they came in larger sizes.

The luminous wheels are a bad way to roll if you you want to maintain a low profile, that's for sure! They trip people out, no doubt. Little kids totally flip out when they see them, not to mention a few adults, too!
