    Famus wheels?

    https://www.locoskates.com/famus-met.../p5044#tdesc_6

    Anyone try these? Looks like they would haul ass in megas, but I'm curious if they would de-core easily.

    A friend of mine had them, he said and showed me they didn't last long at all. I could see all he skated was park and a little street, but who knows maybe you'd have better luck with them

      Cannot see the point of these, just another thing to go wrong potentially. Didn't Omar Wysong start a company that made wheels with hubs that never came out? Was it Exile?

        The metal hub can allow and produce higher rolling speeds with a skater weight on the wheels, but agreed I have my concerns obviously. I don't remember the name of the wheels you were talking about but I know of them. They had some two or three piece metal hub that sandwiched the "tire" (urethane) like a bead lock so that you could just replace the "tire" when it wore out. Absolutely retarded idea, and short lived deservedly so.

        These seem like there is potential though as long as the hub bond is correct. Probably not too light though.

          I mean it says in the description that metal core wheels are a standard in the scooter industry. So if they put out quality wheels for scooters why shouldn't it work for blades with slightly smaller wheels? But also where is the benefit? Can someone explain what more core and less urethane does?

            What name do they make Scooter wheels under? Can't find a single Famus Scooter wheel online.

              Never mind, I read the description. It just says "it works for scootering so it should work for rollerblading". Beautiful way to try and build confidence in a product.
