The saucers were always kind of funky.  To get the proper spacing of the wheel's running surface to the edge of the deck, you'd then have that long conical edge sticking out the side of your board.  Definitely weird.  That's the way they were intended to be run, but it did look backwards.

The saucers rode like steamrollers, not very nimble, being so wide.  The weren't particularly fast, either. 

I loved the standard UFO wheels, especially the hard black ones.  They were fast!
